Mercy me, I am getting the “look ahead” post loaded up a bit late this month. There were too many other things to celebrate and share before this monthly feature! Last month turned out to be very busy, and it looks like I somehow exceeded my normal posting schedule. Whew! I hope all of that helps to make up for the meager blogging that will occur this month.
For my regular readers, you know why I will be AWOL. After this week, we’ll be gone for the rest of the month and cavorting in the wilds of interior and coastal Alaska. Except for regular watering, our flowerbeds and herb plants will get neglected. Our visiting hordes of hummingbirds will have to look elsewhere for food. The kitchen will be devoid of delicious smells and food. The computers will be sleeping. Activity at our cottage will come to a standstill. Undoubtedly, Marty will be running wild!
We’ll be taking a regular ipad with us, but we will have limited availability of wireless connections or time. And I have been way too busy to line up a bunch of posts for publishing during our absence. So my dear blog will go on a temporary hiatus soon.
My consulting work will be suspended during this period too. The break will be welcomed. I have been pretty much working full-time for a year now. It has been difficult to adjust out of my retirement routines, both physically and mentally. My original 6-month contract for this particular work assignment ends mid-month. But I have already agreed to an extension through mid-January. Then, I will happily return to retirement life once again. (I think, LOL.)
We are looking forward to our grand Alaskan adventure! I’ll be posting about the trip itinerary later on this week.
