An Explanation



A picture is worth a thousand words, isn't it?

Can anyone guess why I've been on a blogging break?

[To be continued..... meanwhile I'll try to start catching up on what has been happening in YOUR lives!]

  1. Is that flooring?? Dewena...if it is you are busy or soon will be. At first glance I thought it was beer cases. LOL. Blessings to you , xoxo, Susie

    1. Yes, Kim! We are going to semi-retire! Moving away from Tennessee's cold winters. More details later.

  4. Well, if you're moving, I hope you're at least going somewhere! I remember packing things on my entire first floor for the woods to be refinished - moved twice and went nowhere!

    1. Away from our three sons, Nan, which will be hard but close to our daughter and son-in-law. Our sons and their families will have to come visit often!

    2. It is hard when they are in different places.

  10. I smell a moving van in your future. Oh dear ... that is the hardest work ever, and unpacking, even harder.

    Take care of yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yes, I'd guessed moving!
    How exciting ... looking forward to reading and seeing more about it.

    But take care ...

    All the best Jan

  12. Moving can be exhausting, Dewena. Good luck, and I'll be here when you return, my dear.

    love, ~Sheri

  13. I have never enjoyed even the idea of moving. Endings are so poignant, packing so tedious and good-byes too difficult. On the other hand, arriving holds so many possibilities. I hope you have an arrival flamboyant with possibilities.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh boy! As someone who has moved 4 times in the last 5 years I do not envy you!!! No wonder you've been missing....well, know that we missed you! Remember to find a little time to rest and find peace....wherever you are, and wherever you're going.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yes, it looks like someone is moving. Can't wait to hear the news.

    ReplyDelete
  16. What a job! May your move go smoothly. Keep hydrated, keep a sense of humor.

    Love, hugs & prayers ~ FlowerLady

  17. That's a whole lotta work Dewena! Take care of your back and don't work too hard. A poignant and exciting time, looking backwards and forwards. Looking forward to hearing all about it! Blessings to you, Deborah

  18. At first I thought you were moving. But then I saw all the boxes were from Loews so I figured it might be tile. I guess my first instinct was correct! Wow, wow, wow! Don't keep us in suspense! Where are you going???

    (Don't be confused. It's househoneys. I changed my blog).

  21. WOW you have been busy. I am going to miss your kitchen:) I can only imagine how much you are going to miss your current place yet anticipate happily nesting in the new one. Many conflicted emotions, no doubt.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I can't wait to hear where you are heading, Dewena!
    I'm praying to sale my house soon too.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Moving is both stressful and exciting (I couldn't guess. I took the idea from the comments before me!!).

    Wishing you all the best! I gather you aren't moving north near me. :(

  28. Brings back memories of 2010 when we packed up our big house to move and retire to smaller ones (we've moved 3 times since then trying to find where we want to be)... Good luck on your new journey. Hard to leave your sons but good that you are going to be closer to your daughter. I have 4 sons and 3 have moved to the Pacific Northwest in different states. One remains near where I live. ...anyway - i'm excited just looking at your boxes - I'm feeling the urge to move again.. I need to be a gypsy.
