Good Things, Man


Oh my, but it’s been two-and-a-half months since my last post. I’m sure that is a great disappointment to my reader. Or readers. I think I have two, now.

I have many things to tell you! 2017 is looking very promising with an awful lot to look forward to. Today I’m just going to give you some of the highlights and then I’ll expand on them later. (See what I’m doing here? This is my way of making sure I have at least a few more posts in line. Brilliant, don’t you think?)

Okay. Now that we’ve agreed on the genius of my plan, let’s carry on, shall we?:

I’ve been consistently busy designing websites and thoroughly enjoy the challenge. It’s both logical and creative all at the same time.

There are exciting plans for Grace & Such in the works, not the least of which is the fact we’re publishing a 30 Day devotional, hopefully by April. I read all the devotions several times while editing the book and all I can say is, I know how to surround myself with talented people. They really make me look good!

Renewing the Heart Ministries, the regional ministry I’ve been involved with for the past year or so, is gearing up for our first conference at the end of April. There is so much more to tell you, but you’re going to have to wait. Suffice it to say it’s super exciting stuff! (And check out the website designed by Yours truly.)

Todd and I are starting a new blogging adventure. Well, what I really mean is I’m starting a new blogging adventure and he’s coming along for the ride. Well, what I really mean is he’s coming along for the ride because he doesn’t actually have a choice. Well, he has a choice, but he’s being very supportive. Well, what I mean by “very supportive” is he says, “Whatever.” Due to the first three items above, I don’t have a target date for this new endeavor. Trust me when I say you’ll be among the first to know. As a show of my affection for you, I’ve given you a hint by revealing the logo my very talented friend, Gail, made for us. My requirements were that the characters looked like us, except not fat or old and she certainly delivered!
Katie graduates from college in May. Did you read that people? GRADUATES. FROM COLLEGE! Yikes times infinity, man.

I’ve booked our vacation for this summer. With two adult children, being all adulty and everything, there’s no telling if or when we’ll be able to plan another family vacation. This could be our last one for a while. I hope not, but it’s going to be fabulous and memorable just in case.

I’m back to eating healthy again. The difference this time is that I’ve been doing it for about two months now and it’s FINALLY starting to make a difference.

And that’s all you’re getting. Seven little teasers to bring you back. As P.T. Barnum famously said, “Always leave them wanting more.” Of course, I think he was talking about fierce animals and death defying acts. This isn’t quite that exciting, but I think you should come back anyway.

    You can go ahead and spare me the surprise. Your family vacation is out in Seattle…riiiiight?!
    Love watching you and your sweetie embrace this chapter of new adventures.

      Well, it’s a Northern coast, but just on the other side. Still, Seattle is on the list of somedays!

    After a very long week of a sick kid and then husband, you got me laughing after I read this post. Thank you . You have me dreaming of a summer vacation that is not on our calendar yet . But am sure we’ll find a way to get out of Texas once it’s piping hot around the end of July. Any how……I absolutely love the lovely Logo and I am now waiting for the link to that blog!.

      Oh Susan! I’m sorry the yucks have been at your house. I heard about Michael. Glad he’s okay! And I’m glad I could make you giggle. BTW – I know a little B&B in the mid-Atlantic region you could go for vacation… We have plenty of beds and I’ll provide breakfast. 🙂

        hmmmmm……you now have me thinking big. Real big. Vacation, free home made breakfast, and perhaps free child care?…what could be better than that?. LOL
