Today I am writing my last blog post. For over six years I've pasted my thoughts, big and small, here in this space. Many of you have known me personally during this time and you know that these have been the hardest years of my life, and this blog was one of the things that helped cheer me in some of the darkest hours.
But during the past year, I've begun to long for new directions, and there simply isn't time or stamina for everything. I've taken up some new interests, renewed some old ones, regained a love for cooking that had sort of withered while I was in varying degrees of mobility. And so it's time to close up shop here and move on. I will probably leave the blog up indefinitely, so if there's anything you want to copy or links you need, feel free to come back.
Of course, the real life Granny's House is going strong...not as many occupy our rooms as once did, but more and more join the family all the time and so it's pretty much the same raucous, invigorating place it's always been. I'm immensely proud of the children and grandchildren who pass in and out our doors and they're always welcome home.
And you--you're welcome, too. You can always email me using the link on the blog. Or let us know if you'd ever like to stop by and we'll give you a real life Welcome to Granny's House.
A fond farewell to each of you!
