I had originally written this blog post while the election results were being tallied with a simple, perhaps lame title of, “How are you holding up?” It was really all I could think of given the suspense of the fluctuating numbers and time at a standstill. I know I had been more than just a little bit of a wreck for a week and I can only assume that y’all were too. The results have been decided and no matter what team you were rooting for, we now know and that’s what matters.
I’ve been a little quiet on the blog for the last couple of months. While part of me feels guilt and the need to profusely apologize, giving you reason after reason why I haven’t been blogging twice a week. The fact of the matter is, I’m pretty sure you understand. 2020 is crazy and we all have to stay sane. For the first time in months, I finally feel like I have room to breathe a little, even if it is a sigh of relief.
With working a job from home, refinishing furniture nonstop, starting a homestead, raising chickens, cooking, cleaning, laundry, actually sleeping, voting, etc. sometimes something has to give. I’m still here… I’m still being creative and more. In fact, as part of my completing unfinished projects plan at the beginning of the summer, I’ve been tackling a studio of ragged furniture that I’ve had in my shop for years. (More on that later.)
I’ve also been updating the online shop slowly but surely for the holiday season. Please, keep an eye on the blog for refinished furniture coming out at a steal of a price. I’ll be working on some new healthy recipes because let’s face it, I’m sure we’ve all been stress eating a little more, or is it just me?
All this to say, I’m back to blogging at a reasonable rate… and if I miss a week, I’ll see you the next week. I’m saying all of this so that I remember not to beat myself up for not being Super Woman during a pandemic and the election season. I hope you’re well, healthy, coping the best you can, and staying sane. If there is something you want to see on the blog, please, please, please… reach out and say hello! I’d love to hear from you.
