Top 5 Excuses Why I Have Not Made a New Post in FOREVER!

Okay, like every summer since I started this blog, it seems I have dropped right off the radar!  That is never my intention, but again it seems that nothing has gone up here since Mother's Day.  I admit it - I have a blog problem.  And I am told the first step to getting help is to admit that you have a problem, so I have taken that first step.

The next step toward my blogging salvation is to give excuses for why I have been so tardy, so without FURTHER ado, my excuses are:

5.  Computer burn-out. 

I stare at a computer all day at work, and during my lunch hour I read the news online, and I also add content to our Facebook group, Friends of Textures!/group.php?gid=2426841526, and find other places online to add event listings for  Textures, so by the time I get home I can't bear to turn on the computer again.

4.  Too busy.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

3.  Too lazy.  More to the point than number 4.

2.  Too many cats getting in the way.

This is Emma "exploring" my desk (she's at my feet again - okay, scratch that - she's prowling around my desk and meowing RIGHT NOW!)

Nelson snoozing on my keyboard (he's resting up from sitting on my mouse earlier and preventing me from moving it).

And finally,

1.  Too darn hot!!!  If I haven't mentioned it before, I live in a three-storey Victorian home, and my workshop is - you guessed it - on the top floor!  While I do technically have what was described to me as "central air", that functions best on the first floor and then rapidly drops off in effectiveness as you approach the second floor.  By the time you get to the third floor you might as well forget it! 

So, my husband and I trekked up to Collingwood for the annual Elvis Festival, and stayed at the Red Hills Bed & Breakfast in Thornbury instead.  And I don't have a laptop, so I REALLY couldn't update the blog from there.  Just look - could you bring technology to a lovely place like this?

If you get a chance, do make a visit!

So that's why I haven't updated the blog since May.  I am bad, but I promise to do better in future!
