"Hello and Goodbye (For Now)"

 Hi everyone!  Do you remember the Beatles' song "Hello, Goodbye"?  For some reason, I always loved that song -- just thought it was fun to sing along, I guess.  Anyhoo, I hope everyone had a very blessed Easter weekend.  We certainly did at our house.  We enjoyed delicious food prepared by our moms and had fun visiting with our families.

I was barely online at all last week, and I'm going to take a little time off from blogging.  Maybe a week, maybe a little more or less.  I'm playing it by ear.  I really need to re-charge and re-group, in addition to the fact that our kitchen renovation is still going on.  I'm so excited about the whole project, but we still have about three or four weeks before it will be finished.

I so much appreciate those of you who read my blog and leave such nice comments for me.  It has added a whole new dimension to my life.  I love exchanging ideas, thoughts about life, encouragement, and sympathy with my friends out there.  So don't forget about me, okay?  :)

And I want to say a big "Thank You" to Cuisine Kathleen for the cookbook you sent me from the St. Patrick's Day giveaway.  I'll be sharing more about that when the kitchen is finished.  In the meantime, I'll be following along to see what all of you are doing during this beautiful and busy time of year.  And I hope when this big Google Blogger change happens, I'll still be able to find my way around and find all of you.  I'm not excited about the new format.

Have a great week, everyone, and I'll see you soon!



  1. I can understand about re-grouping. I get a little despondent some times, like why I don't seem to attract new followers, etc. Yet others get dozens every week, so it makes me doubt myself a lot. And my blog is true to how I am, so I guess I ain't so great! lol I know I shouldn't feel that way, but I do. I will miss you, but I will be here when you return. I cannot wait to see your new kitchen reveal. ((hugs)) xo

  2. I could have written this exact post. Been gone... will probably stay gone for a while if I can't get the engines charged as I need to.

    I'll be waiting for updates from that kitchen, and I will really miss seeing posts from you!

    (And I'm with ya in the "hate the change" corner. Blechy. Blech. Blech.

  3. Hi Denise,
    Time away is always good. See you when you get back! :-)

  5. I hope you are back soon. I understand the need for a break and regrouping. Thanks for stopping in at Applejack Lane.

  6. Thanks so much for your visit and sweet remarks. I really appreciate it! Come back soon!

  7. Enjoy your break from blogging. You will be missed but we all understand. Sometimes you just need to step away for a bit. Can't wait to see the new kitchen when it's complete. Hoping it's everything you want it to be.

  8. Good for you!! It's important to take care of ourselves. Enjoy your time off and I look forward to seeing you again when you are ready.

  9. Bless you, Denise, during your respite. Recharge and renew and get back in the groove with fresh inspirations to share! Always so happy to hear from you!
