The Blog :)

Just a brief post to let y'all know that I have decided to stop blogging. I'm sure some might wonder why. I suppose I am just blogged out. I really don't feel like I have much more to contribute. (Doesn't take much to deplete some people, does it? LOL!) :)

I appreciate all your comments. I've "met" some really great people...one of whom I actually got to meet in person. I've learned a lot from bunches of you. And I've had fun. :) I still casually browse other blogs but just am not spending a lot of time on the computer anymore.

I do plan to leave the blog up...just in case there's a recipe you want, or there might even be something you could use now and again. And who knows...at a different season in life, I may very well be back. :)

Thanks again to everyone who took the time to stop by. I wish you all well. :)

Aww! I've missed your posting, but I do understand; I haven't been feeling bloggy for ages. Maybe if you come across the occasional yummy recipe you could share with us ;o)

I understand. I'll still have to stop by now and then for those recipes and tips now that MIL is in a home full time. I have a bit more time, but so need to catch up on things around here, so I guess I'll be taking a break myself.
It was so good to "meet" you online.

Sorry to see you go but I sure understand. Thanks for leaving things up . . . if I ever talk my hubs into a milk cow, I'll be back here checking out your butter posts!

I'm going to cry! I have been missing you wishing you would hurry and get back to blogging and now you are leaving!
I have enjoyed meeting you online, hearing about your family and getting great recipes and hearing about farm life in Tennessee.
Wishing you a Blessed Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I will truly miss my "Lawnmower Lori"!
Blessings,friend!

Lori, I have missed you!!! And now I have to miss you even more! It is funny how reading a blog & exchanging a few emails makes 2 people "friends" - but it really can!! I will keep your blog in my Google Reader - and hope you might show up again some time??!! In the mean time, enjoy your blog-free life & your family & your farm & the holidays. May God continue to richly bless you!

I regret that I found your site just as you were leaving. Please accept thanks for what you have posted, and for leaving it up. There are different seasons, and you know you are welcome. Perhaps just to drop in from time to time and look around. God bless you as you go forward.

Mrs. Doug said...

I am sorry to see you leave, but totally understand. Sometimes there are just more important things to do and more exciting adventures. I hope you'll share with us if you have really exciting news. Hope the Lord blesses your life and those of your family. Have fun with those great kids of yours!!!

Love ya,
Mrs. D

Lori,
I will dearly miss you, my friend, but I certainly understand your position. You have plenty enough to keep you busy with homeschooling and the farm. I hope you will "pop" in to my place every once in awhile and say "HI." I am so glad you will be keeping your blog up. There's lots I haven't read yet. God bless you and your family.

Anita said...

I have enjoyed reading your blog. I have only been blogging myself a few short months and sometimes feel that I don't have enough time to put into it with life being so busy.
Wishing you God's blessings to you and your family.

KJsMom said...

I can completely understand the lack of time, and with a family your resources are better used there. I will miss your posts, you are full of such great wisdom! Thank you for leaving everything up, I haven't written down all the recipes! I hope that maybe you will share a bit of that knowledge now and then when time permits, you will be missed!

Dianne said...

Lori

Thanks for leaving the blog up as I have gotten some delicious recipes from here already and would like to come here now and again.
Thanks:)

Hi Lori,
My first time here and you are gone! :o( Well, maybe you still get your comments. I saw your remark at SimplySandra's on the dressy oven door towel, and wanted to let you know that I posted a tutorial on it here:

I am in the process of updating it, but all the info is there. Hope you can still use it.
God bless you ~

Merry Christmas Lori! Have a wonderful day with your family and friends & blessings to you and your precious family!

Lady Farmer said...

Oh! Lori!
It was so good to hear from ya! I sure miss you, though! But with your comment on peekin' in on me, now and then, I will feel better ~ kinda like my own personal Tennessee guardian angel checking on me!
I have asked hubby to make some of those clothes drying racks for the shoppe but he doesn't like making them. At least not just now after making three in the freezing cold barn/shop for Christmas! He said he will think about it when it warms up. (He doesn't realize that we have a clothesline to hang clothes on in the nice weather. It's when it is nasty out that the clothes rack is useful!) ;~} But I won't push him, they will be welcome whenever he gets around to making them!
Hope you and your family had a wonderfully blessed Christmas and your 2010 is starting out grand!
Leave a little 'howdy' anytime you drop by my blog. I cherish hearing from you!
Blessings!

Jenny said...

Hi. Just going through some old comments and thought I'd stop by to say howdy. Hope to see you again. :D

Lynn said...

Lori, I just wanted to let you know how much we've enjoyed your sweet freezer pickles all winter. Still have a few jars left; we're rationing them :) Now as we're planning our garden we are making sure to plant plenty of the cucumbers that made such tasty pickles last summer. Thank you for the great recipe (one of many). Hope you're enjoying your bloggy break, and that you may come back with a few more great garden recipes when you're ready.

Tammy L said...

Hi Lori! :) Just thinking about you and thought I'd leave a note. :) Hope you're doing well! :)

Come back!

Patricia Hines said...

Your personal needs and the needs of your family always have to come first. This is the way it is meant to be.

Blogging is great, but if it doesn't feel right at a particular time, a blogging vacation is certainly in order.

I just found your blog and have enjoyed reading your posts. I hope you decide to come back to blogging soon.

God Bless you and your family
