Hello to all,

This is just a quick update to let you know that I'm knee-deep in the magic of ordinary days; magic that includes packing, travels, house-guests, and the general mayhem associated with a state-to-state move. But we're on track, and by July 23rd-ish we'll be leaving our Arizona roost for Washington State.

I realize I've been horribly remiss in my visits to you, and for that I'm truly sorry. Your wit & wisdom often color the somewhat lackluster shade of ordinary that arrives with routines. You have become a cyber-family I treasure greatly.

By next week I ought to have a less dramatic, ordinary existence (can that be?). You can be sure I'll head straight to your place!

With warmth & affection,



Debbie said...

Praying it all goes smoothly for you...a move across state? How exciting...BLESSINGS, Debbie

Diana said...

Will look forward to it! Take care and don't over do it.

Technonana said...

Oh Kathleen... Just enjoy!! I love those days... will have many of them this summer. ;0)!!

You are right in the season GOD has you so take your time and do what you need to do while soaking HIM in.

My prayers are with you and your husband in your relocation.

Love you my friend.

Debbie said...

Kathleen, you've been missed! However, I totally understand something about moving as you know. Pack one box a day, right? Just know that your blogging friends are still here whenever you get back online. You are such a jewel in our bloggy world friend.

Love you,

Sonja said...

As my sister is in Oregon, I hope one day we will get to meet, now that you'll be in Wa.

Take it a day at a time... it'll all get done! (says she who hopes she never has to move again!)... :)

Please... post pictures of my old Kentucky home. I've been waiting for them...

Don't worry about heading over to my cyber address. I'd much prefer a visit in person anyways. I completely understand the strain you're under. I'm living it as well, even now awaiting on the removal of couch and loveseat from my living room. After 13 years, it's a final good-bye. Don't know what we'll sit on for the next month, but I don't much care. In fact, I'm about ready to give everything away. Want some crystal?
Pictures? Kids?


Nel said...

Yes we have been missing you, but understand! Your plate is quite full right now, but isn't it good to know that He is holding the platter! Hope your move goes smoothly and it is everything you are hoping for.

until next time... nel

Just a little something from Judy said...

Even an ordinary, middle of the week post is written with creativity. We have missed you, but isn't it wonderful to be missed? Praying that you will have the needed energy to complete every last detail, and that your new home will feel welcoming to you.

Hi Kathleen -

I'm glad it's happy things occupying your time. See you soon.

Susan :)

Angel said...

Will be praying for you as you get moved and look forward to pictures and stories!

Praying for safe travels along your journey from AZ to WA. WOW what a huge climate change for you. Enjoy!

Love and Hugs ~~ Kat

Hope you have a blessed move!

For some reason your blog is not coming up in my blogroll on my dashboard. I came back and tried to re-follow the blog. It tells me I have been blocked by the site owner. I don't know if this is a blogger error or if I have done or said something to offend you. I am truly sorry if that is the case. Please do not fret over this...I am going to assume it is a blogger problem until I hear otherwise from you (after you are settled). My email is:
Again, do NOT take time out of your move to email me.

Hugs, Blessings, and prayers,

Loren said...

A Cyber Family Indeed. Enjoy and take things easy ~ one day at a time. So thankful that even though we don't get those real life hugs but here we get the daily love, wisdom and lessons in life that you so graciously share!
Praying your packing and visiting in your final Arizona days are blessed and filled with precious memories! I have no doubt you leave many many wonderful people who will have a giant size whole where Kathleen has resided for quite some time! You are so special to us ~ I can only imagine how hard it will be for those to say goodbye!

Love and hugs to you my friend

Rose said...

Kathleen, we will miss you just as much! Take care in the move, don't over do it! Hugs till you return.

KelliGirl said...

Another adventure for your impressive resume! Good luck packing and planning. I'm looking forward to reading about your new home.

I don't, however, think you'll have an ordinary existence next week because you, my friend, are extraordinary!

They call me "Deb" said...

Some whirlwinds are awesome to be in - being as God seems to have orchestrated this one, ENJOY!!! We miss you terribly, but are so happy for you.

Donna M. Kohlstrom said...

Since I've been away for two months I've missed the news about your move! I hope it's for a wonderful new adventure! Praying a safe, healthy journey to your new home!

Brenda Leyland said...

I love how you phrase it 'the magic of ordinary days'.

And I've been doing a bout of those myself...... so enjoy and we'll look forward to future visits.

a woman who is said...

Oh wow,you are moving back to WA state! I couldn't find any details in your blog, but you will have to fill us in. I think I remember you being a west side gal? Hope you are getting closer to your grands. Blessings on your move, and all the grand new adventures God has in store for you.

Terri Tiffany said...

You have a date set! Wow! I hope the house details all go well and I hope the sun is shining alot when you roll into WA. But that means someday we will be meeting up! I wish you'd live near Bothell and meet my daughter:)
