It's Official ... We Are Now My Parents

I had a sneaking suspicion it would happen sooner or later, but today I realised it without a doubt it's true.

Hubby and I have become my parents.

I retired last summer so being home most of the time isn't much of a change during these strange times. What HAS changed is the fact that hubby, like many others, has been off work for weeks.

Oh sure, we have had a few days where we've finally accomplished tasks that have been waiting way too long but to be honest, most days consist of waking up, eating meals and watching TV / YouTube.

But today I baked cookies

while hubby worked on a jigsaw puzzle.

It should be noted that my parents are 93 and 92. They've been married for over 71 years and reside at a lovely senior home, spending a lot of their time doing jigsaw puzzles.

It's a bit of a shock to realise you've turned into your parents.

But damn, these cookies ARE delicious.


I've been thinking.

A lot.

I've been thinking a lot about this very old blog.

When I came across it recently, I realised it's been so neglected since I last posted in 2013. The whole thing was a mess; most of the images were missing as they were hosted on a server that no longer exists. I tried my best to find what I could on old external drives I dug out and dusted off... but sadly some files are gone forever though when my old HP laptop died.

But in trying to fix this up to be at least somewhat presentable, reading the old posts brought back some wonderful memories. Many links to old blogging friends no longer work - but I was pleased to see some still have continued to write and I can't wait to get in touch with them again!

Since 2013 quite a bit has changed in my life; my daughter married a few years ago, we bid farewell to our dear cat Sheba and sweet dog Casey. I retired last year and have been enjoying building my small business making polymer clay charms.

But some things stayed the same: I continue to draw, paint and sculpt. Hubby and I still live in the same home and I love spending most of my time here.

So should I return to blogging?

I think.


I think I shall.

Yeah, I should be doing laundry, yardwork, cleaning the house or planning meals. But frankly, I'D RATHER BE BLOGGING... about things like this.
