Happy Trails

So how is it done in the blogging community? Taking a vacation that is? Does one announce it right up front or does one just walk out, shut the door, and flip the "gone fishing" sign?

Life is so stressful right now that I can hardly think. I am quite sure that it shows. So I am officially "gone fishing" until things calm down. When do things ever calm down? Hope it's soon!

You can still count on seeing me here and there as I adore reading blogs. You are some of the most fascinating people I know.

Hope to be back blogging by month's end, until then, "Happy Trails!"

  1. Yes, I put a "gone fishing" sign on my blog. Sorry that things are so hectic. Take a breather. Too bad you can't hop a plane to the Caribbean!

  2. We'll miss you! Hope you get some rest and that things settle down for you soon. This is a good chance to read some of your earlier posts, so I, for one, will put your hiatus to good use! Take care.

  3. Bummer. there you are putting on a happy face and crying inside. Sounds familiar... I did that for too many years to count. I was always the clown for the group... always the entertainer... but finally got fed up.

    Then...I made some changes..

    The last 25 have been the best years of my life ....and even throughout those I have had to, and still am, getting rid of more dead wood and re-organizing as I continue on. Some things stay the same...and some things should not.

    Feel free to do as you please with blogging.... it shouldn't be something you feel obliged to do, nor should it be yet another thing you need to fret about. Begin with blogging dear sister, and just make some of your own "new" choices in your life.

  4. You did it perfectly. You simply said you are taking a break.

    Sorry that life is so stressful now. But we know it has to be, for you. And we understand. {and you can still take a break, whether anyone understands or not...} But we do understand.

    Lots of good wishes going to you, for the stressors to calm down.

    And btw, no need to stay away, the whole time, just because you said you were gonna'. Maybe some day, you'll get into relieving stress by taking some grrrrrrrrrreat photos. And it would be fun to post those grrrrrrrreat photos. Don't not do so ~ just because you said you were going to be away till the end of the month. ,-)

    Gee, bet you never thought of that dilemma, all by yourself, did you? And aren't you *lucky,* to have a reader like me, to point out to you, something you'd not thought of yourself? Something to be a conundrum? Oh yes!!!! I just *know* you are grateful! No need to send lots of thanks my way! LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

    Hugs,

  6. Vee,
    I will miss your presence and I hope you enjoy your absence. I've been thinking of a break myself. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I leave you with this thought until your return"

    "The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save,He will take great delight in you, HE WILL QUIET YOU WITH HIS LOVE, He will rejoice over you with singing." (Zeph. 3:17)

    Rest in His love, blessings,
    Miss Sandy

  7. Yes, you just go. No worries at all. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed my blogging break over the holidays. While I missed everyone, there was rejuvenation in taking time off.

    Blogging is not and should not be an obligation. We don't forget you just because you don't post. Post when you are inspired to. Visit those who inspire you when you need it. Encourage those you want to encourage. And be still and quiet when you need rejuvenation. Reach out when you need a friend and know that any one of us will be right there when you "call".

    Best to you as your renew your energy and strength! God bless you Vee, I'll pray for you to get through the stress!

  9. You couldn't have "announced" your break more perfectly! You will be missed my friend and your return will be much anticipated! Take care and know you're being thought of fondly!

  13. Vee - Everything in nature that God created needs a rest, a break, a winter, a sleep, a rejuvenation. Listen to your body and mind and soul and rest and re-group and center with the Lord. We all need that. See you soon - Vickie

  22. Wow Vee - I feel just like you do, apparently! I can't seem to get into blogging right now. I guess it's the aftermath of the holiday madness...it takes awhile to get back to being "normal" (whatever THAT is. lol). I've been kind of wondering if it was just me, but I've noticed alot of us aren't blogging as much as we used to. Then again, maybe we're all just crazy, depressed, menopausal wenches so who knows? lol

    Hope you get your mojo back soon and if you do, let me know where you found it so I can see if mine is hanging out there, too.
