This is a Test

I am writing to see if I was able to figure out the aforementioned problem regarding the lack of breaks created between paragraphs using the enter/return goes...hit the key

Did it work? I am going to look at the preview right now....

Well I'll be dipped damned! I am a genius! I figured it out on my own! All by my own little self! Under "post settings" there is an "options" button, under that there is an option to choose "enter" for line breaks...Click!

Viola!!!!!! Spaces between my paragraphs....I will sleep much better now! maybe I am a little anal....


Rambling thoughts...                                                 Blogspot makes me crazy! What is with this program's inability to recognize "return/enter" to create spaces/lines between paragraphs? Why doesn't what I type in dashboard look like what is published on the blog? UGH! space bar space bar preview preview...back and forth back and forth!                                                                                                                                                                              And no I am not OCD! I just have a thing about spaces between my paragraphs

What's The Plan?

Welllll....... That depends on what we are talking about.      
                                                                                               The immediate plan is to take a shower as it appears to be 6pm and I am still in boxer shorts and the t-shirt I slept in! Don't let the attire delude you into thinking I have not been productive today...quite the contrary!                                                                                                                                      I have dusted, run the vacuum cleaner, sorted all my fabric, nearly finished a quilt top for my son and walked in on my daughter and her boyfriend in the throws of ummmmm....                                                                                                                                                                         Well, let's just say, he was butt ass naked and her legs were in the air! In their defense, it is her apartment, and I didn't knock.                                                                                                                                                                                    In my defense, there wasn't a sock on the doorknob!!!!!!!!

Memory Lane

I spent some time last evening taking a walk down that familiar path....

When I created this blog slightly over four years ago, I had no idea where it would go or better articulated: where it would take me.

 It has been a journey, these past four years. I have learned a great deal about myself and about others. Life has a way of teaching us lessons we are apt never to forget! Sometimes I think getting hit by a train might have been easier and far less painful! But alas....I survived. For that is what I am to my very core....a survivor!

However, I don't always want to be a "survivor". I want to embrace my life and those in it. I have had a difficult time doing that in recent years. I miss the feeling of true joy, of being passionate about something, anything!

Existing within my existence has become the norm. Meandering through the words I have written over the years brought feelings of melancholy and yet spread smiles across my face.

Regrets? Often too many to count! Gratitudes? By far outweigh the regrets....there has been so much more good than bad! It is time to focus on those things!

Windows close, doors open...
Endings bring beginnings...

Hello Old Friend

Here you are...always stead fast and waiting. Poised for my return no matter how long I have been gone. Accepting my absence without question. Patiently waiting for what is to come. I neglected you my friend. Why? I did not want you to become the outlet for all that was negative and sad. I did not know how to take you in a direction that was safe....for us both. Yet Dear Friend, I have felt you tugging at my soul.... After all "writing is the supreme solace" (W. Somerset Maugham)

I See You!
