So, I started this blog when I was gaining strength and happiness while learning to live alone. I loved it. I did. I came home to my dogs, I had friends over when I wanted, I could cuss at my mower when it cut out on me and I could knit until way past midnight. I watched a lot of Bravo TV. I can still do these things. But the one thing that I missed was a partner. I missed someone who VALUED me. Somehow that got lost in the last relationship. And it went both ways.
The wind-up to all of this is that 2 years ago, a man fell into my life who is everything that I was missing. He values me, he loves me and he treasures me. That might sound really corny, but it is a very impactful thing to hear someone say about you. My former SIL told me that I needed someone who adores me. He told me that he does. Without being prompted to do so. Magic. Amazing.
Ok, enough mush. I am at a crossroads in my life. I go to work each day, but am so looking forward to retiring. I'm trying to work this out sooner than later. The ocean calls me. I have enough fiber upstairs to knit around the world (slight exaggeration). I have friends to see and things that I want to do. I HAVE A GRANDCHILD!
The last one makes me want to retire tomorrow. Of course the fact that she's on the other side of the country does make it a little difficult, but I'm up for some traveling!
That's it for now. I'm back! I'll probably start posting pictures of knitting, dogs, beasts in my yard, architecture from places that I visit, and just plain life. Hope you come along.
