and while I wrote a post at Christmas, I have not posted again until now.
Yes indeed, I went down the rabbit hole where the seasons slipped by even quicker than the days……those hot and humid days flowed into the months of summer, which flowed like a mudslide into the end of another year……
I have really missed writing my blog, so straight up, let me say I apologize for not staying in touch. To keep it simple, I have struggled with an inability to stay focused, considerable fatigue, weight loss, then weight gain, etc. The diagnosis- hypothyroid, Hashimoto Thyroiditis to be exact, triggered, or at least contributed to, by long standing osteomyelitis of the knee. This is a frustrating component and not easily solved but, hopefully stabilized. For now, after some titration and adjustments of thyroid meds, I am doing better, especially in the hair loss department. Geez, vanity, right? So….with that being said, I’m so happy to be back to writing and posting on a regular basis. Thank you for your inquiries and sweet notes and patience during my absence. You, my lovely readers, are why I do this, so thank you and let’s get back to it….
So what to expect? As I began to feel better I took a most amazing extended trip abroad. It was beyond wonderful, and filled my eyes with visual beauty, my mind with questions and answers, and my heart to overflowing. I am excited to be able to share all about that, along with more amazing homes and interiors, some upcoming big changes, future and already completed design projects and more. I have recently made a couple of trips to San Francisco and Muir Beach, and I look forward to sharing my photos and thoughts about a place I so love to visit and enjoy, and have done so many times over the years.
So with emergence from the rabbit hole complete, I will visit with you again tomorrow, and it’s back to my passion for interior and garden design. Again, thank you so much for sticking with me. I have never met most of you, but with so many, I feel I can rightly call you friends, as you have shown me what friendship is. Your loyalty is a gift. Blessings wished to you all. See you tomorrow, nature willing and the creek don’t rise…..Laters, charisse
