Well . . . We’re Waiting! August 22, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Blogging, Humor, Life Balance.

As some of you may have noticed, I have been rather “silent” today. 

Other than re-blogging Rik’s post, Cute Alert!, and tossing out some Anagram Antics this morning, no recent words of wisdom have been posted for your thoughtful consideration.

Sorry about that. 

After being Freshly Pressed on Friday with my first post,  The Chain: Harbinger of Things To Come, I jumped into high gear, fingers flying across the keyboard, and ended up with 6 posts for the day ~ despite switching gears frequently to greet first time visitors to SLTW.  

For those of you who became new subscribers to SLTW . . . WELCOME!   I’ve definitely enjoyed the influx of new faces and avatars this weekend. 

Yesterday, I pushed out 4 more posts, including an insight-filled piece about What I Learned From My Fridge.  If you missed any of Friday or Saturday’s posts, click August 20th or August 21st on the calendar and they’ll be front and center on your screen.  

OK, so back to today’s quietude.

Last night, I wrote a post for this morning; then pulled it at the last minute because it seemed premature.  It needed a bit more incubation, and polishing.  Taking my cue from Ernest and Julio Gallo, I serve no wine or truth (“in vino, veritas”) before its time.

This afternoon, I planned to get back to the keyboard to share some humorous observation on life.  Instead, I spent the afternoon trolling around cyber-space checking out blogs written by many of the new visitors and subscribers to SLTW. 

And, well, one thing led to another, and (before I knew what had happened) the afternoon had disappeared from view, evening had arrived on the scene, and still no post from me to you. 

Last time this happened, a concerned visitor e-mailed to inquire after my health.  That time, I had taken the day off for a post-birthday celebration and felt terrible about absenting myself from the premises without so much as a How-De-Do or a Fare-Thee-Well. 

Hence this post:  I am alive, and well, and will return to regularly scheduled posts tomorrow . . . Tuesday at the latest.

In the meantime, welcome again to new subscribers!  Feel free to take a good look around to see what we’ve been discussing since SLTW launched in February.

LOL You make me feel like such a slacker. I am pushed to to post every couple of weeks. I need to be more disciplined, I guess.

Not necessarily. Writing is my full time priority at the moment. You may have other (more important) things demanding your time and talents.

We each have our own path to follow. : )

Congrats on making it onto Freshly Pressed, WOW!

Thanks. It’s been fun to see so many new faces around the water cooler. : )

What a STAR you are, Nancy – congratulations and richly deserved!!!

I also took a break yesterday, to focus on family and spoil all our dogs with a lovely long walk. It’s quite refreshing sometimes 🙂

Thanks, Naomi. We’re all shining stars . . . of course, some of us diffuse our light more than others. : )

Last night, and the night before, the temps cooled off enough for us to take an invigorating bike ride before dinner. Delightful.

We were away on Saturday and Sunday, so I am just getting to your posts for the weekend…so I haven’t really missed you – but I’m SURE you’ve missed MY pithy, witty comments (Bwahh-hah-hah-hah-haaaaaaah!) Hope your week goes well – I’m working on a couple of new Odes to the Everyday, and will hopefully be posting one of those or an older one this week. Cheers! 😀

I did miss you and your pithy, witty comments. BTW: One of my posts, Bands of Gold, mentions you!!!
