All Is Well

I've had a couple of people ask if everything is okay this week because I've been largely offline.

Yes, everything is good.

Better than good really, that's the problem.

There's so much happening that I'm busier than normal, and something has to give.

And this week, it was being online.

I was on the computer, make no mistake. I've been organizing parties (two of them), making invitations and cake toppers and fun crafts. And I've had three big editing jobs to do this past couple of weeks as well.

On top of that, work has been super busy with a big push for innovations, which happens to be the team I am on, so I've been organizing brainstorming sessions and breakout meetings.

And on top of that is spring. Which means there is so much to do around the house and garden that sometimes it feels impossible. But that sense of satisfaction that I got from spending an hour combing my asiatic lilies to find the murderous red beetles that were eating it alive makes it all worthwhile. As does the promise of new potatoes, fresh herbs and baby carrots and snowpeas in the months ahead.

So busy, yes. But good busy.

And today, I feel like I am on top of it all. I even have time to meet a girlfriend for lunch.

That's something to be happy about.

Busy is often good! Hope you enjoyed your lunch -- wish it could have been with me! I've had a busy week, too, and it does show up in the lack of time spent online. My mother-in-law flew in today, and she took me out to lunch. And now I'm going to bed EARLY to recover from my exhausting week. Have a great weekend, my friend!
