Beginning Again


Hi!  It's been ten months since my last post (which has been deleted due to some weirdness as I tried to update this blog, which was fairly disastrous). Alot has happened....you know about my new job, which is a vast improvement over where I was. You don't know about Punkin, the 5 week old kitten who mysteriously appeared in our chicken pen last June, squirting right through the fencing and into our hearts. She's with us still, a holy terror who is forgiven all transgressions eventually. You don't know our hens TuTi, Julia & Octavia had to be re-homed due to a mite issue that was insurmountable without re-homing them so we could let a bitter cold winter freeze out the mites in the coop. Trust me, the home they went to was paradise, and they have very happy lives. We'll begin again in May, with chicks this year.

I didn't blog about my younger son moving permanently to Denver and how hard that goodbye was for me, even though I don't think he realizes it. You don't know that the love of my life actually married me in September, almost 10 years to the day that  we both realized we had feelings for each other. 

There's alot of living that I never shared. Of late, my oldest friend has been asking me when I'll begin blogging again. At the same time, the Universe has sent me a few neon signs that it's time to write again, not only the blog, but to finally begin the story in methat needs telling.It's time to begin. To write. To live my purpose. And so, in this month that harbors Spring, the penultimate symbol and season of rebirth and renewal, I'm resuming blogging, but with a new look and a new look and a new page. I won't be posting on this page again. 

The name remains the same at the new location, but I don't know what will come of it. I hope you'll visit  and discover it along with me...

See you soon!

Wow! It has been a long time, Ashling but glad to hear most of the news (not the chickens/mites) nor the moving of your son, which is so hard on a Mom....:)JP

Hi, wonderful news of you and yours, little newcomers, a marriage, I left you a comment on the new site, all great news, step forward into Springtime, with a new blog and a book ahead.

A second comment, I read last week, if cleaning out the hen house, spray with water first, so you do not get the mite dust up your nose!!, And a freeze would do, here where we might not get cold enough days, water blasting is OK, or paint all surfaces with tar oil ( maybe called creosote), this is a very old method.
