Summer officially begins this coming Monday and our daily life is starting to get increasingly active and full. House guests, festivals, and get togethers with friends and family are all beginning to converge at once. I love summer, but it can get hectic (what did I do before I retired?).
In order to have more time to devote to not making myself too crazy, I will be taking a few weeks off from blogging. I might be able to get one or two simple GratiTuesday posts up, but probably not much more than that.
I have been blogging since 2013 and, like most bloggers, I had just a few followers for longer than I’d like to admit. All those early pearls of wisdom and only my husband and a few loyal friends were lucky enough to read them… so sad.
Anyway, for those who missed my early posts (and that would probably be you), I will rerun some of my moldy oldies favorites over the new few weeks. If you are reading them for the first time, I hope you enjoy them. If you’ve read them before, thanks so much for sticking around for so long.
See you in a few weeks!

Happy summer and looking forward to meeting with you in July!! 🙂
I look forward to that also!
Wow. Nice to know that I am not the only retiree who is too busy to blog. Eight years into retirement and I have less time to waste than when I was working. Enjoy your summer. (And hey, us old folks can read a blog from last year and not remember it, lol)
Good point! I know that I wouldn’t remember.
Have a great break, Janis! I look forward to reading your “summer reruns”.
Thank you! And you have a wonderful walk!
What a great idea to repost some favs! It will be interesting to hear your voice of 2 years ago. Enjoy your time “off”. I will miss your insightful comments on my blog.
Thank you! I’ll be around a little bit to read and comment on the blogs I follow, but just not so much. Funny thing that I noticed about my earlier posts is that they were longer… not sure why.
Yesss…you’re doing something I’ve thought of doing, too. And while my ‘followers’ haven’t increased significantly, the idea behind your ‘recycling’ of posts is valid!
I’m just now getting back online, so I’ll miss your comments, but look forward to your ‘reruns’
Enjoy you’re summer.
I’m going to still try to read and comment when I can, but probably not as much. The not thinking about writing blog posts will be a nice break, though.
Enjoy your time off. I too am always overwhelmed by summer. (How did we work and do stuff?) I wish our summer was longer! I love the occasional day with nothing on the schedule to fritter away as I please. Bring on the reruns!
I often wonder how people are able to work AND get anything done. Sometimes I’m a little embarrassed about the things that “overwhelm” me these days. 😄
Such a great idea. I’ll look forward to those early pearls. Enjoy yourself (we all need a break every once in a while, right?)
“Pearls” might be a bit of an over-sell. 😄 A break will be nice… I hope that my abilities to pre-schedule posts work as well for me as they did for you.
I think the key is to remember to ‘save’ – the button, as I recall, is waaaay on the bottom of the page! 😉
The care and feeding of a blog takes lots of time, as you know. But since I’m fairly new to the game, I will love reading your earlier posts. They’ll help me get to know you even better! Enjoy your break, Janis! ~ Lynn
Thank you! I pick a few older ones that still resonated with me (and hopefully found and fixed all the old typos).
Enjoy your summer break, Janis. I will enjoy reading your earlier material, and look forward to your fresh posts when you return.
Thank you! I hope to have all sorts of new things to blog about.
Enjoy! And as a newer reader, I look forward to seeing some of your earlier posts. I know how hard it is to persevere when you feel like no one is reading, so good to give some posts the light of day again.
You are so right! I remember getting my first follower that I wasn’t related to or had dirt on… they actually chose to read my blog! She is still my best virtual friend just for that reason.
Janis, enjoy the break. Take care and have one for me. Keith
Thanks, Keith. I’ll still be around in your comment section now and then. 😄
Janis, you are always welcome. I hope you enjoy your time away. Keith
Enjoy your break!
Have a wonderful break, Janis. That’s something every blogger should do now and then 🙂
It’s always good to go in search of new material!
Enjoy your time off! I too have been challenged to write posts recently. I was gone all of May and will be traveling most of July through mid-September, so June has been a catch-up/get-ahead month. I like your recycle idea – I’ve only managed one post since our May roadtrip. It’s amazing how time consuming blogging can be!
I think it’s interesting how an unpaid gig like blogging can sometimes feel like a commitment… or even – gasp – a job! I look forward to reading about your travels when you return (or not… no pressure). 😄
