So Long, Farewell.....



It's time to say goodbye. 

At least for a while.  

I've said countless times that I love blogging and I do.  But, I have to be honest, my heart just isn't into blogging right now.  There is so much I've neglected lately and I just haven't been able to find that right balance between Real Life and Blogging.  

Too much time is being spent sitting on my derriere in front of a computer and not enough time attending to those chores and projects that I have piling up.  So, as much as I don't want to do it, I know I must.  Those short breaks I've taken weren't nearly long enough. 

I plan to be back when I've gotten caught up on a few things.  I'm slow, so it may be a while.  I'll be checking in and reading from time to time and, when time permits, I'll leave a comment, but my posting will be on hiatus for now.  

Take care and stay well, dear blog friends.  Enjoy the wonderful fall season...I certainly plan to!  We have our fall vacation coming up next month...I can't wait!

Until next time...

  2. All the best with that long list of chores. (I get the feeling that our lists may be comparable.)

    Thank you for leaving us with such a pretty header to see when we get missing you too much!

  3. You will be missed, Cheryl, but I completely understand your decision. I often feel like I am spending much too much time on my derriere too. Amazing how quickly times passes while visiting all of the wonderful blogs out there.
    I wish you good luck in getting your
    projects completed.
    Enjoy the beautiful fall season.

  6. I will miss you, Cheryl. I've had to assess my blogging time over the past year, too. I've found that if most days I spend my early coffee time and then no more, it has worked out. It does take time, but I have been so richly blessed by the community of ladies I have "met" here. I will look forward to your return. May you have smooth and efficient sailing on your projects. blessings and hugs ~ tanna

  14. You will be missed, Cheryl! I totally understand. I am so far behind on completing the projects I want to do.

  16. I'll sure miss stopping by, but I totally know what you are saying. I do blog and visit, but don't comment like I used to. I've got so much going on that blogging has just taken a back seat now. I wish you well and enjoy your fall vacation. I do love your header, and I hope to see you blogging again sometime.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I wish you success in your endeavors. I sure know how you feel...but I swear I do better with things when I blog. But some of the time I have the hardest time coming up with a blog post. I don't know why I can't go back to the way I began...just blogging about my day to day life.

    I will miss seeing you...I just got off a blog break myself but for a totally different reason.

  18. Have a wonderful time on vacation. You and your posts will be missed,but you have to do what is right for you.

  19. HI Cheryl I am sorry that you will not be blogging for a while however I completely understand. Get catch up and then come back. I love your blog and comments on my blogs.

  20. Okay I understand, but that doesn't mean I am not sad. It is hard to lose a good friend. I hope you do come back. Hugs.

  21. Cheryl, I will certainly miss your posts but understand. I wish you well and hope you will be able to return again later on. Take care! Blessings, Pamela

  22. My Cherie' You know that I will miss seeing you around here but I totally understand. There are Seasons in our lives and I think we need to heed those calls when they come. Blessings to you- I know that you will be just fine. Love to you-you are a lovely woman- xo Diana

  23. ENJOY your blogging vacation. Do what you need to do.

    ReplyDelete
  24. And just when I'm beginning to get to know you. I know what you mean though...there is a fine line sometimes between "good" and "better" and one has to back away for a time to see clearly. Just hop back in whenever it is right...

    Take care! Enjoy your autumn! :)

  27. I think a lot of people are taking breaks......I obviously am on a break, but unfortunately I'm not seeming to get anything else done either! Sigh...

    Look for you to return!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh NOoooo!! I will really miss you! But I also know how it goes, it is not good for us to sit at the computer all day long!! Not good for our health, and for the chores and life that is waiting for us beyond the computer screen. I hope you enjoy life, have a blast, and come back as soon as you are ready!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Have a good break. We definitely need it from time to time! Besides, I find autumn to be the most difficult time to get it all done. Wise of you to know when to take a break. Have a good and safe vacation.

    ReplyDelete
  30. :-( I'll miss you. But I do understand. It's why I only post once or twice a week. Too much to do in real life. Be sure to come by and visit us any time you can.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Over a year ago I took what I intended to be a short break from blogging, and I'm still on break. Please don't take that long to come back to your blog, because yours is one I always try to read when I allow myself the time to "pop back in." Enjoy yourself, though, however long it lasts.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Change is a good thing, even though we'll miss seeing you around. But that just means we'll be even more excited when you return!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I will miss your posts and look forward to when you are back. I must say I have been thinking about doing the very same thing. My house needs some hard work on it. My problem isn't just the blogging it's other commitments. I get frustrated when I don't even have time to read a novel.
    I figure at my age I should be sitting in front of the fire and just enjoying a good book and a cup of hot chocolate.
    Enjoy your time of getting things done; there is a great feeling of accomplishment in that one.
    Blessings and hugs!

  34. Cheryl I will miss you, the kittens, your beautiful photography and your words but I certainly understand. I am blogged out too. Enjoy your Fall break and have a wonderful vacation! We are heading to Tennessee soon.. :)

  35. Have a good break- this silly computer has a way of pulling us in sometimes. Blessings!

  36. sometimes you just gotta take a break! get some stuff done and come back when you're ready, we'll be here!

  37. Hi Cheryl. I always enjoy your posts and will miss you. I know what you mean about lack of time. It is the very reason that I have not been keeping up with posting. I'm hoping my followers will understand and join me again when I post. I know yours will! Will watch for your return.

  38. Cheryl,
    It is hard to squeeze blogging in, especially when it can be so time consuming.
    You have always been a favorite blogger of mine, and you will be missed. Enjoy your break time, and enjoy your time with family, and life.
    Smiles :)

  39. Like so many others who have commented here, you will be missed but life does take precedence. As much as I enjoy blogging, I cannot keep up with reading too many or participating in various themed days. It does get overwhelming. Yet it is always wonderful to "meet" so many people and you have been one of these, Cheryl. Enjoy your vacation and have fun using that new camera as well. Hope to see your return one day. Feel free to email anytime.

  41. Hi Cheryl, I could have and should have written this post, I too have taken short breaks for exactly the same reason you did, and that's why I am late coming here today.I found myself coming back with much to do on my list of chores. I will miss you and you will know when the time is right, this gives me much to think about, and lots of courage too!
    Hugs, and blessings,

  46. I've been on vacation so I am just now reading this...I know how you feel. I have been very sporadic in blogging this year and can't seem to get consistent. I will miss your beautiful pictures and posts.
    Hope your break is refreshing.
