Today's the day I can finally tell you
the news that will explain WHY
I have been such a lousy blog friend.
Yes, it's an excuse and possibly a lame one,
but it has certainly shaken the ground
in Small Works Land...
Small Works is moving.No, not in the "Same bat-time, same bat-channel" sort of way...Small Works itself will still be found right here (if any of you have been kind enough to stick around while I've been sorta MIA).
I mean, the whole kit-and-kaboodle is moving: Susan, her wool stash, her studio, her stacks of old magazines, Cooper -- pretty much everything I write about is moving -- EXCEPT -- the Minnesota weather. That is going to stay right here. Which means I am going to have to find new things to write about.
I'll probably still write about the weather, actually -- because it's "out of the frying pan, into the fire" (literally)....
We are moving to Phoenix!
That means that instead of complaining about the cold for 9 months of the year, I can complain about the heat for 9 months! Everyone shout hooray! Because I like heat ever-so-much more than cold. So my complaining may become more good-natured.
And my neighbors may finally understand me!
A home in the desert!
A land of guacamole and promise!
If I can ever get there. There are a few things that have to happen first. Getting windows last week was step one. There are about 100 additional steps. Which is why I have been wearing paint clothes for so long, it feels like I was born in them.
But it feels so good
to have let the secret escape at last!
Please bear with me while I am in and out for the next while -- once the house is on the market, things will calm down around here. (And that better be soon, since the St. Paul ACC is just a month away!)
Perhaps the best thing about blog friends is that you can take them with you.
(Hope you'll come along to the new neighborhood!)
Now get lost! -- before I hand you a paint brush and put you to work.....
