Everything's Temporary

Almost two months since I've posted!

I guess one could say I'm temporarily away.

I've been artmaking and housewifeing.

I've been preparing for (and hiding from) some life-changing events.

My dad has been ill for quite a while and is now in and out of nursing homes and hospitals.  Hopefully he can recover enough to move on to an assisted living facility.  I'm thinking his attitude is not positive lately.  I'm not sure how I would feel if I were 85 and had lost my spouse of 60 years and my home of 50 years.

As for homes, when my husband and I moved to State College, PA, 15 years ago, he planted a (mental) flag and declared we would retire and die here.  As I said in my title, "everything's temporary." Announcements to come later.

Hopefully, I will soon post regularly again.  I just have to get back in touch with my old, sarcastic, inner self.  That part of me has been worn down to a nub.  I must nurture it back to life.


  1. Ah, yes...the sarcastic inner self needs to be nurtured too.
    Not sure on what, however. :)

    I'm praying for the best for your dad. Seriously.

  2. That's rough. I went through that with my mom earlier this year. Hope everything works out as well as possible.

  3. Hi Kim
    Just stopping by to see how you are faring.
    Sounds like you are doing it a bit tough as the moment.
    I'll send my angels over to lighten the load.
    Keep shining my friend.
    Big hugs
