"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness" 2 Corinthians 12:9

I did it again

went and stayed away much longer than I had planned.  Guess I needed this little break from the blogging world.

Not sure about anyone else, but  the last several weeks my life has been rather busy and at the same time, I can’t tell you alot that I have actually done.  Nothing that would look like a major accomplishment, but one of great self satisfaction for me.

One of my primary focus though has been less time at the computer.  Seems some days get lost while sitting at the computer, and I have made a pretty concentrated effort to stay away from the computer during the days.  Spending much more time, getting caught up on things around here and puttering around with some “fun things” for the home.

My weekends have been full with all my kids here, so I have been spending time with them and doing quite abit of cooking.  It’s all good!  Something I have greatly missed since they have all been away. 

I’m just taking in the wonderful days of Autumn, enjoying the weather and fall festivities in the area this time of year with family and friends. It has been like a breath of fresh air.

A little run down of some of the things I have been up to:

  • Antiquing with friends
  • Fall festivals and carnivals
  • Watching apple butter being made (and buying some) can you say YUMMO?
  • Decorating my front porch for Fall
  • Traipsing around hunting down the perfect pumpkins
  • Going to farmers markets
  • Creating list of upcoming crafting projects
  • Hitting some yard sales with my bf
  • Starting to organize photos (getting them ready to scan)
  • Cooking home cooked meals for my kids on the weekends
  • Watching football on Sundays with my sons
  • Reading for pleasure
  • Spending more time studying THE WORD
  • watching movies with my hubby
  • getting to bed earlier

So as you can see, I haven’t gotten alot to show for my time away, except a content heart.  Which is a wonderful feeling.

I feel like I have been a terrible blogging friend/buddy, but this season has been a time for slowing down and making some changes and something that I feel like I really needed to do.

Not sure how often I will be around, maybe daily, maybe once a week…maybe when I feel like I have something to share….basically I am just taking this time as God leads me too, to enjoy those things that I get great joy from. My home, family, and friends. I know I will not be gone totally, because there is just so much out there in blogland and friends that I love to visit with and learn from. 

K…since I have a few minutes tonight by myself…going to do some blog hopping. It’s been awhile. 

Hope your having a blessed week so far.

  1. Cindy it was good to read what has been going on in your life and I say Go for it!! You sound like being away for a while was what you needed...and I will be glad to hear from you whenever you have the time and "want to"!! Hugs to you and blessings!!

  2. We have all felt that way. I struggle with the time it takes with blogging and then visiting everyone. It does take up a lot of time and time that we can't get back. We will be here when you come back and we will read if it is only one post a week.

    Enjoy your time away. Sounds like you are doing some fun things.

  3. Good to hear from you Cindy, I have missed reading your posts.
    It seems you have really been having lots of fun,.....Loved your list... Just looked so perfect to me. Enjoy this time with your family and friends.


  4. A content heart! That's more valuable than anything. I'm learning too about when and what!
    He's teaching!
    Thanks for sharing,

  5. It's hard to juggle it all. You do what you need to do - your REAL life comes first (something I need to remember as well). :)

  6. I always say it's best to just blog when you feel like it. This month is flying by and things are getting busy here too - can't believe it will be November soon, halloweedn first, then Kiki's birthday... and thanksgiving (both on the same day I might add, then of course Christmas! It will be crazy til after the new year for all of us I'm sure.

  7. From my vantage point, it looks like you've been very busy and have a lot to show for your absence. :) I always enjoy hearing that people are spending less time at the computer. Blogging can take over your life, if you let it. I'd rather live mine out to the fullest, even if that means having no time to blog about it. So, go girl!

  8. Loved what you wrote here, Cindy. :) We are on the same page. :D So much of the time I just peek in to Facebook quickly and love seeing my friends in real time, smiling at their faces and their status updates. I think I fall down in blogging because I know I can't devote the time it takes to blog hop sufficiently...and that always makes me feel like a bad friend. But I do miss that interaction. So...I wanted to give you my new blog link, different from the homemaker one. This is just a quiet blog because I miss that bloggy interaction with my girlfriends. :) xoxo

Thank you for visiting with me today and for taking the time to leave me a little note so I can return the visit. Hope your having a blessed day! Hugs!
