I am taking a break…and by the way… Happy Birthday!!!!!

This is going to be a surprise to all of you as it was to me also.  The first birthday of this blog is November 15, 2011.  That is, tomorrow.  After 270 postings, 786 comments,      726 spam comments, and 8,879 views all-time, I have decided to take a long break.

I was watching a show where the word intention was mentioned quite a few times.  Then, of course, I questioned my intention of doing this blog.  I had valid and great intentions when I started.  The first one was to relate to my lovely daughter part of my story.  Also, among other things, I learned how to take better pictures, how to express myself a bit better;  learned the ins and outs of blogging to keep my neurons busy and alert, made new blogosphere friends, got to know other friends much better and all in all, it was exciting, motivating and enlightening.

Also, it gave me incentive and motivation to keep on going at that stage of my life when I was going through feeling so alone and with a need to be productive and to learning something new.  All is part of going through the seasons of life.

All that begins must come to an end, eventually.  Before that happens, the end, I want to experience new adventures and exploring other things before I convert back to total energy. What I am trying to say, it is time to move on to something else.  What is that “else”–I do not know right now, but have a slight idea.  When I decide what “it” is, I will share.

I want to express my gratitude to all of you who have been with me in this very interesting part of my life and appreciate each and all of your comments.

As a child, we grow up.  As an aging adult, I feel like the world is my oyster and everything is out there for me just for the asking.

Life is like that famous ice cream company promotes, it has many flavors and this one was very good, but I need to try new and different things.

Thank you again and I wish all and each one of you the best life has to offer.  I do wish the same for myself.  Maybe once in a while, I may be in touch, but do not know how soon.

So…it was today…14 November, 2011…a day to say until we meet again my dearest friends.

Your Happy Contessa

      Yes, I am stopping for a while. This was becoming a chore, and the moment something becomes a chore in my life…have to take a break. I have other things in mind that I need to concentrate on. Thanks for your enthusiasm and support. There’s still email.

    Now what, pray tell, am I supposed to read while drinking my morning coffee at work? This is the blog of record and my only weekday A.M. joy…

    Well, Happy Birthday, dear lady. Your blog is something you control in a world where so little can be controlled. We will miss your postings and your perspective on this wacky world. But you never close one door without opening another. So we will wait, patiently or not, for the news of you newest adventure. We know with absolutely certainty that it will be interesting and enjoyable for you, or you will not pursue it. We so love you every moment.
