Okay, okay. I know I’ve been a wee bit absent of late. I thought perhaps if I took a few days off that I would feel rejuvenated and inspired. We had fall break this past Thursday & Friday, so the girls and I went up to our family farm in Idaho to pick apples, cut back iris, move pipes, and all sorts of “get it ready for winter” things.

No computer though . . . actually, it’s no internet access so why even bring it.

Needless to say, I am stiff and sore. One doesn’t exercise very many muscles sitting on one’s hiney most of the day. ;)

Sadly though, the same ol’ crap that I was dealing with before I left was still waiting for me when I got home. Although I didn’t have to deal with it until today (Monday). It’s amazing how all this “stuff” going on in your life can hinder your motivation. We’ve all been there, right? After a couple of lengthy phone calls this morning, I was feeling awfully motivated to crawl back into bed . . . but the “stuff” even hindered that motivation. lol

So, since I didn’t get a Friday Freebie done before I left, I thought I’d offer one up today. I’d been working on this one a little bit ago, so it seems like an oxymoron for me at this particular moment in my life.;)

I’ll just have to chalk up this phrase as positive thinking. Because really, life IS good . . . most of the time. ;)

And thanks for all your recent comments. They’ve been both entertaining and appreciated.
