Fresh Beginning

Hi there. I’m thinking about coming back. Starting afresh. Beginning anew. I recently got a new phone. And I’m thinking maybe, just maybe it could be fun to do some short blogs from the phone. Where perhaps inserting pics could be simple? And writing could happen anywhere? Although I have always hated writing on the phone. The keyboards are terrible. So there is that. Sigh. I loved blogging when I was doing it regularly. Wonder if it’s possible to get my blogging mojo back? Hmmm….

 Meet Pebbles. She’s the newest member of our family so I guess she’s a good place to start. And she’s been with us for over a year!  It all started with a backyard full of kittens who randomly showed up last summer. Three mama kitties. And thirteen babies. Oh, the stories I could tell!

But this is destined to be a short blog. Not one that goes on and on and on and on. And on. So perhaps we’ll tell those stories another day?

Pappy is still up to his usual tricks. Although he has slowed down a bit. He loves Pebbles. They are great buddies.

Panda is still around too. She doesn’t love Pebbles. Tolerate might be a better word. But she doesn’t even tolerate her very well. However I do think she’s happy for Pappy to have a distraction. She’d be perfectly content if we just fed her treats all day long. And I do mean All. Day. Long. In her mind we live to serve her. Treats. Constantly. I have no pic of Panda in this new phone. Maybe next time?

Next week I’m heading out for our JSS quilting retreat. There are always loads of things to blog about there! We’ll see if I’m up to the challenge of blogging again. I might need some encouragement from you.  Does anyone even read blogs any more? Or are Facebook and Instagram where it’s cool to be these days?

Off to cut up some fabric for retreat while I ponder whether or not blogging can enhance my life. <grin>

Hugs and kisses,

    I hope you start blogging again. Maybe you can be my motivation. I have missed your blogs with kitty antics and the like. You always seem to make me laugh about something or another. I,ve thought of you often and wondered where you’d gone off to! We went to Canada in May and I thought of you every time I saw Tim Hortons…lol do you go up there anymore? Anyway, I hope you will come back to make us all smile and inspire us to get off our lazy bums and finish something…lol
    Miss ya

    I’m so glad to hear that you are considering blogging again. I always enjoyed your quilts, your travels, and definitely your kitty cats!

    Barb, I am so happy to see you’re blogging again. Missed you and your many interesting stories. I always enjoyed the blogs about the JSS retreat. Please include lots of photos.

    I love reading your blog. Keep it up!

  9. Suz says:

    If you want to write, I want to read! It’s a win-win, especially if kitty pictures are involved (don’t tell my dogs!)

    Glad to see you back on my email! Always enjoy reading your updates on kitties and sewing. Hope your family is doing well.

    Hi, Barb. I’ve missed your blogs! It’s best for me to read them through email, but FB is good too. We had to have Bonnie put down. Besides having epilepsy, she had lost most of her hearing and was rapidly growing cataracts. She would get lost in the house! Anyway, after my hip surgery we’re probably going to adopt a kitten.

    Hey friend! It’s been awhile but glad to see you are still quilting and loving cats.

  14. Karen says:

    It would be good to have you back. Hope it works for you.
