Well, Tristan and I are both still alive. I’ve taken an unplanned hiatus from blogging because a) I have been ridiculously sick for weeks now and b) the holiday rush at Bel Joeor Metier has been knocking me flat.
Which. THANK YOU for everyone who has placed orders – whether for their blogger Secret Santa, their barn friends, or themselves. It blows me away that people like what I make and that they want to support me.
Thanks to that holiday push, I was able to write a check for Tristan’s surprise pergolide refill last week with only a twinge of grumpiness – and no existential money panic.
Though I have been so miserably sick, Tristan is fat and happy and comfortable, and that’s really all I ask for.
I’ve been doing some 2019 goal planning, and will write about that soon. Tristan is also officially barefoot again, so I’ll write about that – and our hopes/dreams/plans for keeping him that way.
