Real work lies in knowing how to wait.
So, it has been awhile since I have been here, and I do know that this is very rude. There are a few important things that my Grandma taught me that come to mind this morning. “When you start something you should finish it.” “When people are expecting you to be there always show up, or at the very least let them know you cannot make it”, “Never be intentionally rude’, and lastly, “Play nice”.
I must tell you, I have been busy. That is what I have always told everyone, and though it may very well be true, it is not an excuse. I have been busy for as long as I can remember but had still managed to get a blog post on here. I am not sure about the quality of the post though. Some of my earlier posts (when I look back now) are grammar and punctuation lacking, but I must believe, full of heart. I will not go back to change them, they were a journey that I needed to travel to prove to myself that I could do something different, and stick with it. I have stuck with this writing/blogging thing for over five years now. I still want to keep going, it has become a huge part of who I am.
So, what have I been up to, I am sure you are wondering? Well,technical difficulties started to enter my world when I downloaded Windows 10. FREE, that word is tricky, and that word was probably the only reason I clicked the download button. Windows 10, and I had a little bit of a rough start, but we did manage to overcome. Our relationship blossomed over time as we tried to get to know each other better, just as it should happen in any new relationship. It had quirks, but honestly so do I, so I overlooked them while I hoped he overlooked mine. That seemed to have worked wonderfully, for quite a while. “Ignorance is bliss” another Grandma saying. We wandered along getting very familiar with each other and I skirted around asking those questions I did not really want to know the answer to. A relationship “Big no no”, I can see that clearly now.
These problems have been more to do with my photos, and I, like most of you, am very protective of my photos. Windows 10 had a duel with a program I loved. Windows 10, being a bully, kicked my easy to love program out, and now I am left trying to get them back together. Much like in real life, I did learn that you cannot make others like each other, just because you get along. Chemistry and other things come into play here, I think.
So my friends, while I was battling with Windows 10, and hoping to make him be more willing to except my way of thinking, and play nice with my friends I have in turn ignored all of you. Yes, there you have it. Grandma was right. I am rude. I have also been busy trying to play nice, just like my Grandma had taught me.
Another quick note: I am truly busy here on the farm. It is that time of year after all. Even without juggling all this relationship stuff, my time has been stretched. So there you have it. I will be back. I have quite a few good stories piled up, and now I am waiting to see if Windows 10 approves. I love it here. My apologies, and thank you for holding on.
