  1. Sheryl, I’m impressed that you find time for this blog with all your other writing endeavors. I read a few of your articles late last week. The upside to recovering from surgery is more time to dig a bit deeper into my favorite blogs.


    • Thank you so much, Alys, I really appreciate your kind words! I’m afraid that with all my other projects I’m always late with everything related to blogging: reading, commenting, replying to comments…but I try to get around to it eventually!

      I really hope your surgery recovery is going well, thinking of you!

      • I’m three weeks post surgery and feeling so much better. I still can’t bear any weight which is hard, and I’m easily fatigued, but each day I see an improvement and that is what it’s all about.

        I know it takes a lot of time to read through and comment on blogs, both your own and others. I think everyone that blogs regularly understands that. Thanks for popping in when you can.

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
