I’ve been a little distracted lately

I’ve been very quiet lately, and although I’ve been busy, there really hasn’t been anything to write about in my blog.  I admit, I also just haven’t been in the mood to mess with my site, especially since I still need to work on other sections (and I still haven’t decided how I want to add them).  In late June, my husband Christopher went to a writers’ conference in Austin.  I went with him and enjoyed some time to myself, lounging around the hotel, reading in the lobby and by the pool.  An agent requested the full manuscript of Christopher’s novel.  He also got a call for a job interview, and was hired quickly.  I’ve been helping him out where I can, and adjusting to our new schedules.  My grandmother also passed away in July, so my thoughts have understandably been elsewhere.

It was nice having so much time with Christopher while he was unemployed.  It’s a shame how quickly time flies, but I look forward to the future — I know we’ll always have fun, and I’m so thankful things have worked out so perfectly during his layoff and with his new job.

I’m going to try to get things rolling smoothly again with all of my projects, not to mention this website.  I still have work to do on some of the site’s sections, as well as getting back to more regular blog entries.  I have also changed the way readers post my entries.  I went with the “summary” version, instead of the “full” version since the images won’t show up anyway unless you read the entry from my website.  Some of the blogs I follow have had various issues and changed to that format as well.  I don’t mind having to go to their blogs to read the rest of the entry, although I know some people prefer not having to do that.  It’s just what I’m going to try to work with for the moment with the way I have my settings.  I’m sure I will make other changes over time with some of the settings and options.

I still won’t post a blog entry too often (I don’t want to get burned out like I did on my old website with art), but I’m hoping to have a small update with one of my latest sewing projects either Thursday or Friday.  After that, I’ll try to space out entries to last so I can focus on sewing and other non-website related things.  Best wishes!

About Cynthia Griffith

I have way too many interests and hobbies, and continually cycle through them -- paying attention to some, while others wait for when I can get around to them again. My main interests are sewing and costuming (I enjoy historical clothing, such as 18th and 19th century, as well as fantasy costumes like elves and hopefully someday even dwarves), as well as getting back to art by drawing fan art of Thorin Oakenshield and Company. My husband Christopher and I spend a lot of time together, enjoying the outdoors and shared hobbies such as juggling. This blog and website is my way to share what I'm up to with friends and family.

    I’m sorry to hear about your Grandmother, but that is wonderful news about Christopher’s writing!

  2. Hey Ali! Nice to hear from you!

    Thanks for the lovely reply 🙂 Yeah, Christopher has a long wait until he hears from the agent, I’m sure, but it’s been a fun process and he’s learned a lot. We’ll see how things go!

    The family is doing fine about Granny. She would have been 96 on the 26th of July. Amazing, eh? She was quite the gal, but her health had been failing for a while now. I’m so glad she was there for so much of my life, even though I didn’t get to see her enough. I’m also thankful Christopher got to meet her a few times, too 🙂

    Best wishes!
