I’ve been amazed by the webs that pop up over night and meet us in the morning stretching across the posts of the back porch and hanging from the support beams. Other times we see them hanging from the trees attaching themselves from the branches, to the trunk to the ground. And then — poof — in just a few hours, they are completely gone. Rick says it’s a wind that sweeps them away or a varmint that takes them out. But not every day has a breeze or a wind. And varmints — except squirrels — seem to come out at night. I wonder how they can disappear between early in the morning and by 10:00 AM be gone?

These pop up over night and meet us in the morning.

I’ve been gone for a few weeks spinning webs of my own. A couple of weeks ago I was notified that I had to re-certify in my field for one of my consulting jobs. With only two days notice I took a battery of tests and — whew! — I passed! I’m still decompressing from that, grateful for the renewed opportunity to serve students.

If that wasn’t enough, I received word on the following Thursday that folks had unanimously nominated me emcee for a coming up event in the city. “Why me?” I asked. “Because you’re fun.” “Huh?” So without wincing too much I set out to create a program…a plan for a fun event! So I disappeared out of the http://www.blogosphere — poof — like a spider and her web, spinning other webs, again. Summary: The EVENT was a success and it’s over. That was last Wednesday.

Daughter called, “Can you take grandson to the doctor?” “Of course,” I answered. Lately I’ve taken to packing an overnight bag so if I’m in the city, I’m ready to answer the next call and spend the night as needed. And, sometimes her work takes her out of town, so I stay, get GS to school, pick him up, help get the homework done, etc. That said, my laptop doesn’t go everywhere with me. And, when I’m at her house, GS or she take over the computer. It’s not like being at home at my desk top to read, surf and write at my leisure.

So, I’m checking in to explain my absence, to let you know I’m trying to find my blogging rhythm again. Meanwhile, I’m spinning webs that come out of no where OR I’m stuck in the city web that won’t let me go.
