THE TIME HAS COME-THE TIME IS NOW-NANA DIANA IS GOING FOR A WHILE

 I have a lot on my plate

right now so I am

 taking a blogging break.

     I am going to curtail my visits on

Instagram, Facebook & Blogger

for a while.

I will pop in once in a while on

IG & FB but will not be blogging.

I feel guilty getting comments and not

being able to reply or to visit your blogs,

so---off I go for a while.

As some of you know,

John has some more surgery coming up,

I am still dealing with inflammatory issues,

and I need time to handle things here.


What's on my agenda?

I have a trip planned with my daughter

and three grand girls.

I have new books to read,

an upstairs full of 'stuff' to purge,

things to finish up in the condo,

and I need to get the camper

ready for the season.

We have NO internet and 

sketchy phone service at the RV park.

HOWEVER-

I WILL RETURN!

Look for me this fall

but for right now----

I just need a break.

I hate it when people just disappear

and you never know what happened to them....

so I did not want to be "that person".

Thank you all for always being

so faithful and following along

with all my nonsense.

You are

THE BEST!

Thoughts love and prayers going up for you and the family. I sure understand why you're taking a break from blogging. There will be little time left with all you have on your plate. I too feel the same as you know we have lots of things to take care of for now.
Know we love you always will. Keep in touch if when you can.

Good luck to John with his surgery, and to you, as well. I'm glad that you have some nice things on your plate to look forward to, and balance things out. Have a great summer, Diana!

Rita C at Panoply said...

Take care of John and yourself, Diana. No need to reply, that's just another stressor. I hope you have a good summer.

Vee said...

Have a blessed and restorative time away, Diana. My goodness! You do have lots on your plate. I am glad that you are getting away with your daughter and the granddaughters. Take good care of you. You'll be missed, but priorities are priorities and all bloggers understand that.

Kathy said...

I sure understand taking a break and have been at that point myself. Have a safe and restorative period away and I will look for you when you come back. Praying for you and John.

I totally understand. Take care and know I'm praying for you and John.

Enjoy your break and may only good come out of it. You'll be missed but just know you are in my prayers.

Enjoy your summer. Just think, when you come back Starbucks' pumpkin spice season will be in full swing!

Marilyn @ MountainTopSpice said...

You do have a lot on your plate Diana, and I notice during the summer it is much harder for me to keep up with blogging too. Have a blessed time as you get away with your granddaughters and do some camping! And good luck with the the "stuff", that is not a fun chore at all! Blessings :)

Gosh I know what you mean. I love blogging and have thought about coming back - but it takes so much time to do it right - and I have so m any things/issues going on.
I wish you well - take a break - come back. Hope John is okay.

Jeanie said...

Hang in there, my friend. So much on your plate -- go at it one bite at a time if you can (and I know that isn't always easy). Sending all good wishes to you and your family with the upcoming medical issues, especially.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Hugs, Diana! I hope everything goes well this summer. See you when you have time to come back to the blogosphere.

We totally understand. Praying all will go well for your husband's surgery, and that your inflammatory issues will clear up when you can rest and relax and unload some stress. We will be right here when you get back, Lord willin' and the creek don't rise...So just don't worry about us...relax and try to have some fun!!!

Have a lovely summer!!! I rest laying down and read every afternoon after the "shoulds" are done. It's not selfishness to take care of yourself, it's self-caring. Like the stewardess says, Put YOUR oxygen mask on first!! Kathy A

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

Take care of you and your husband. We will be praying and here when you return. xoxo

Red Rose Alley said...

I understand, Diana, but I do hope you return to blogging this Fall. Will miss you. Have a fun trip with your daughter. It really is nice to get away from everything for awhile. I have another trip coming up as well. I hope John's surgeries go well, and that you feel better soon. I know lots of people who are going through the "getting rid of things" right now. It's a long and hard process, so hang in there. Love you, dear friend, and think of me along the way. : )

Melanie said...

Thank you for letting us know that you're taking a break. Like you said, there's so many bloggers that just disappear into thin air and it makes us wonder what happened to them and if they're OK. You certainly do have a lot on your plate...I will be thinking about you and keeping both you and John in my prayers as he goes through his surgery.

Love and hugs,
Melanie

Brenda Pruitt said...

Thanks for letting us know. I too hate it when a blogger just up and disappears. So thanks.

Ann said...

I'll miss your posts but it's totally understandable. You're in my feedly feed so I'll know when you return.
Take care.

Laurie said...

I know I’m guilty of being that person that just disappears but when you don’t have the eyesight to take care of a blog it’s difficult, I’m hoping that everything becomes easier for you soon. You need to take care of you, you’re always taking care of everyone else. I’m sorry I’ve disappeared but I’m not gone. Take care my friend👍❤️

Lynne said...

Good for you Diana . . .
We all need to take care of ourselves!
Happy you are taking a break and treating yourself kindly!
Give that “bundle of Scruffy fun” a big hug from me.

Eileen in Fla. said...

You DO have a lot on your plate, but if anyone can handle it, you can! Hope you get in some fun, rest and relaxation too. And BTW, I also don't do well when Bloggers just disappear, so thanks for the alert. See you when we see you.

Lorrie said...

Rest, fun, sweet sleep and make glorious memories. A tiny snip from my Memphis feed this a.m. said 1:15 to 7:00 a.m. on August 8 of 77 Elvis rented out the park and rode the Zippin Pippin countless times---is last public appearance.

Doris said...

Will miss your nonsense 😄
Please take care of you and your hubby. Getting older is sooo fun. (read that with some sarcasm, please) I no long go for a regular check up and walk out with nothing going on...had an xray this week, Arthur is showing up all of a sudden.
Enjoy your time away. Will look for you this fall!

Theresa said...

I will miss you but will be here waiting for your return! Have a blessed day and Summer ahead. HUGS and PRAYERS coming your way!
