Spring Is Eating My Brain....and I'm Sorry...

Just a REALLY quick post to explain my blogging absence....
There are 2 things that have me sort of "Out To Lunch" as far as posting recently.

1) I have become increasingly disillusioned with Etsy and am thinking of simply getting my own site with shopping cart and all. This is taking up a ton of my online time with research and the like. A domain can be expensive, and I need to tighten up, but Etsy is just not doing it. Too many people, too much politics.

2) It's spring here, ish, and for those of you that know me, you know it's garden time. As my garden actually consists of pots on the porch, it can be both more and less work than a yard garden. (Fewer critters and weeds, more watering and trimming.) As a side note, the blueberries, raspberries and daylilies all came back, and I got (deep breath) peas, chili peppers, tomatoes, sage, garlic, basil, rosemary, lemon thyme, strawberries, peppermint and 4 (or 5) varieties of lettuce all potted and ready to feed us!!! Next up are corn, carrots, bell peppers, possibly pumpkins, pickles and brussles sprouts (if the cabbage worms don't come for the lettuce this year). I have no high hopes for our grapes tho....they may be goners.

SO...the crux of this little note is thus....I WILL still be posting my favourite things once in a while, and when I have the time to 'interview' people I'll still be doing the favourite people posts. But neither of these will be on a monthly schedule. Not for a few months anyway. We'll see what deep summer brings this year. But I plan on a lot of otside time this summer, so bear with me.

Hello, my long lost friend! I just wanted to drop by to see how you are doing! I miss our visits. I have been absent a lot myself, and am also strongly considering breaking away from Etsy to "do my own thing". It's a big decision, though, isn't it?
Hope you are doing well!
Jessie
