bonjour, paresse


I have been a very bad blog friend...and artist. I have to confess that in between the new job, trying to incorporate exercise into my life (next step is PX90 challenge!!) and a very obnoxious shoulder pain, that might be a pinched nerve, I have been very lazy in posting and visiting my fellow bloggers.


I was trying to maintain a somewhat normal routine, but I have been so tired with all the new excitment that I have been exhausted...


I promise to amend my ways soon!

Be kind to yourself, no expectations here, you are loved like a delicate butterfly appearing when ready! x

Lorraine said...

These are so beautiful and never ever apologize for needing the time
alone you don't see an extrovert apologize for the party he or she went to? lol you're a wonderful artist x

Sherri B. said...

Ana, no worries - real life is very demanding. It's a pleasure to see your art work...your presence is very strong there and there are no words needed! I hope your shoulder feels better soon - have a wonderful weekend. :)

Arkansas Patti said...

Hey, take time for yourself. You have a lot on your plate and we will still be here.

Take your time and get better! We all need a blog break every once in a while :)

Jeanie said...

The colors in this are glorious, as is the texture. Life can make you crazy, can't it? When I was ill, it was easier to post than to visit. It'll work out. Take care!

tinajo said...

Take it easy, we´ll still be around when you have the time and energy! :-)

No need to feel bad about this, Ana! Life is keeping you busy, and you do the best you can.

Sometimes blogging has to take a back seat!

Oi Ana,

Esteva com saudades!
Espero que tenha se recuperado do ombro.
E que esteja gostando do seu novo trabalho.
Suas borboletas estão ficando lindas como sempre.

Take care of yourself first! Rest and relax when you can!

I hope your shoulder is better soon! Thank you for the lovely pics.

Magic Love Crow said...

Missed you, but I understand ;o)

Ileana said...

We've all been there. I hope you feel better soon! Take care.

Francie M said...

Take it easy. Some bloggers burn out and disappear because they haven't been able to allow themselves a rest! We'll still be here when you feel better! :)

Annette said...

Oh not to worry my friend you are doing fine. Take care and we have been there and I am fixin to have a moving and selling adventure and at my age, OMG. I will be sore as all get out and taking lots of Tylenol.. Just giant hugs and all will fall into place. xoxoxo

Caffeine Girl said...

No need to apologize! Please take care of yourself and know that we're here to read when you have time to write. Blogging should be a pleasure!

Ariel said...

No problem Ana. You get settled first, and remember to take rest only then the artist in you will turn happy:)
Take Care

Jillian said...

I think we're all experiencing something similar, though we would describe different symptoms - maybe its the shift from winter to spring. Keep moving forward. The job will soon start to sync and you will find renewed energy to pursue your other goals.

Irene @ In A Different Place said...

No apologies needed, Ana. Enjoy! And I do hope you feel better soon. And, gorgeous art over here. :-)

Almost Precious said...

Ana, I'm not sure why it is but for some reason (maybe the timid introvert within) tends to make us apologize for simply being human.

Life happens, things crop up that divert our attention and some things are just more important that others . . . such as one's health, family and job. :)

Take care of yourself and blog when your heart feels like that is what it truly wishes to do. ;)

Ophelia said...

No need to apologize!! You are always so awesome! Hope that everything is going well...and that you will settle into your new routine soon.

Zoe said...

such a gift to stumble upon your blog. Beautiful art. May I also add the advice of self care?

Vickie said...

Life happens. The butterfly is colorful and peaceful, I love it. Take care of yourself first always.

Bohemian mom said...

oh, how beautiful! Happy Blogoversary!!! and same - we must remember to take care of ourselve...sometimes we spread ourselves so thin with everything we need to do.
PS > checking here to see if you emailed me? or if it was my troll pretending to be someone else (as is just another of her tiresome traits) Let me know please and I'll let you into my now private blog - thanks~

(and I'm figuring it out but may have to comment from my google account as sometimes comments don't accept my wordpress identity - must make that a priority today to figure that out.
peace

How beautiful! And don't ever worry about being behind in visits....you would not BELIEVE how behind I am right now! lol Happy weekend my friend!

Fundy Blue said...

Just found this post, Ana! You have not been "bad!" You've just been coping with life. Your butterflies are beautiful. I like the way the colors bleed together. I hope that you are feeling no pain now. That has to be frustrating for an artist! Take care!
