Slowly... Slowly....

Slowly things are getting back to usual. It's been a while- I've missed you and I really want to apologize to all of you for my absence the last couple of weeks. We've been out of town since December 17th and just returned home yesterday. In that time so many things happened, expected and unexpected. Mostly all good. I did get the flu though and have yet to figure out how that happened since I thought I'd been so vigilant this year.

Unexpected things will happen I guess. So slowly the house is getting cleaned up and ready for living again. I actually cooked three meals today. We tripped over to the co op and have food in the house again. It feels so good to be home. Being with family was wonderful but really to quote Dorothy "there's no place like home". Although coming home to another 5 inches or so of snow that had to be shoveled before we could actually get the car in the garage made the homecoming a little less sweet.

So here I am again, and slowly, slowly I've been storing up things to share with you. Beautiful things like the frost and snow pictures I've been taking. Discoveries and connections I made over the holiday. Ideas I can't wait to try out. I'm realizing that a bit of a holiday from the everyday is an amazing way to not only get those creative juices flowing but making the anticipation of creating exciting again. I can't wait to play with my art supplies, to write blog posts, and to make wire art again. But I've determined to take it slowly.... I'll let you know how it goes. :)
