Out of the shadows

Yes, it's really me. I'm stepping out of the shadows to actually write something here again. I realized just how much I miss my J's as I read their ever-so-eloquent words on their blogs. I wish we could walk in our woods and chat about the meaning of life and other such musings. And who knows - we might just find a swollen stream whose stepping logs have washed away that might give us an adventurous challenge. ;o)
I'm so very glad it's spring! I don't think I could take another week of winter without getting seriously depressed. Michigan is so weird like that - on the first sunny day we had after a long spell of freezing cold, bleak, cloudy winter, people were in such good moods! It's amazing how much the sun has an effect on us. Happy endorphins :o)

Well, I suppose I should give an update. Nothing much has changed. Dad and I have been steadily going to weight watchers and he has lost 35 pounds and I've lost only about 15. I'm so proud of him and he looks great! I've come to the conclusion that I am addicted to food. It's a challenge for me to stop eating even when I am full. It's something I am trying to conquer. Please pray for me!! I need help.

All this spring weather is getting me in the mood for Renaissance festival. Oh! There's news there, for those that haven't heard yet. My Dad and I are going to be merchants for a weekend this year and sell our homemade candles. Friar Jim's candles is the name of our little shop. So we are going to be madly cranking out lots of candles here this spring. It'll be so fun to be there as a merchant! I can't wait! Oh... and if anyone has a canopy/gazebo/pavilion we could use, that would be grand!!

Do you know what SLRF weekend you're working yet? That's going to be a blast!

I miss you! And our woods walks. Not that I've had as many as the "other" J, but the ones I've been on have been so wonderful. Keep makes me feel like you are not so far away.

And, oh my gosh, yay! I'm so glad you talked the "Friar" into it! I'll be in town mid-June-ish. Is there a Ren. Faire going on then?

Great to see a post! I miss our Js also. I'm thinking of going to a Ren-Faire. I'll try not to feel like a chaperone. I'm going too braid my hair and wear an outfit and buy a candle... Ok, thinking of retirement makes me imagine anything is possible! See you...
