Once Upon a Time


In what seems to be another era, I began posting little bits here about my life.    A good way I thought, to see if my male adult children pay attention to anything more than hockey, dirt-bikes, barbells or trap shooting.   Apparently so.  Because after about  ten months absence from Daily Decadent, I began hearing things like,

"You done anything on your blog lately?"
 "Hey, I went to your blog and you aren't there."
"Hey, would you put up directions for making that beef taco filling using real beef?"
 "I need to know how to do those tortilla thingies.  Why isn't it on the blog?"
"Is Violinist keeping you that busy with his babies?"
  

Life does take over.  But it has been a very good take over.  And while I have missed transferring the little vignettes from my head to dear blogger.  I haven't missed the stress of thinking, "Oh my, I haven't posted anything today."  Nor have I missed the stress of figuring out new photo editing software, or adapting to new and improved blogger, which while I was gone, apparently ate a host of my backlogged poems and photos and stories, oh my!
 
It was fun then and could be fun again.
The year has gone by very, very fast  with the addition of a second string player and a third on the way for Violinist and Roll Kuchen.   
Buff is away at college.
Fun moved out, now gracing Speedy and Mrs. Speedy's home with his fun self.
We are down to Geek Guy, The Cat, et moi, Decadent Housewife.  So I need to change the tagline, if I can figure out how to do that, and  maybe start a different site too.

You've already made my day. I think of you often and I'm so excited to see you here! Aren't grands the best? xox

Good Morning, Patricia. Yes, grands are the best. Thanks for the enthusiasm. II Will be all day with the grands today - but the little one is sick :(

Blogs can change like people change. I say keep this site and just let it evolve as your life has.

Oh, I'm SO happy you're back! I love your recipes so much, I printed off all them in a frenzy one day, worrying you would take the blog down. I love seeing the baby, too!!

Dave,
You are right. I think that is what will happen.

Joy,
Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you like the recipes. Hope I don't overdo the babies, since I'm with them so much.

Hi!! I'm so glad to see you back! I would check now and then, but figured you were having too much fun with those adorable babies. :)

Adeena,
Absolutely, I was/am having a fabulous time with the babies. I needed to slow down and take time away knowing the boys were soon moving out. Good to see you too!
