Of course, I’ve not been posting.
Exhaustion, family issues, cats sick, and The Big Move.
And a bit depressed about the state of our country…
We have now had a day or two to sleep deeply, and sleep has buoyed me a bit.
We will have (mostly) time off for a few days (a client meeting or two from
out-of-town clients) and so I am feeling restored.
T-day is tomorrow, and so I give thanks…
We’ll start with my last page in my new journal and
then I will post what I’ve done and haven’t posted!
First and foremost, I give thanks for my husband…
I swear if I didn’t have him to share the crapity-crap-crap times
with I don’t know what I’d do… He feels the same.
This is a silly post-it note he wrote me pasted in my art journal,
and yes, I save them all… in a big blue moon-box unless they are pasted somewhere!
Cats. Joyous, funny, keeping me laughing even when they are being “bad”
they are family, ours, and so this last couple weeks
was a huge scare with us for two of them… they are 100% okay.
I give thanks for those I know/met through this blog
and FB/IG friends from around the world.
Sharing what I love with others that love similar things and expose me to
new ideas and products and joy, how great is that.
I give thanks for work and the ability to do it!
Have a restful and good holiday whatever you are doing.
We are staying in pjs and eating non-turkey things we love and
making art and playing guitar and playing with the cats…

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
marvelous read!..I enjoyed the trip with you thru this month……seemed impossible to have gone through it all and be in one piece. …..we’re the actors on the stage of life for sure..
It was a bad month — not the worst of my life but pretty bad.
I give thanks that I have you in my life.
this one tugged at my heart!
Big hugs to you, Katie! And purrs from my kitties, Parker and Piper, too!
