Thank you all so much for all your caring comments of support about poor little Victoria.
I appreciate it very much.

Now I really need to take a break from Blogger  as I have so much things that need to get done around here and I never seem to have enough time to finish any tasks. This way I won't feel so guilty for not visiting you on your blog. Instead of spending the evening trying to get caught up, Ill try to relax more.

I'll be back when I have more time to spare. Be well everyone and take good care of yourselves. Enjoy your summer to the max. Life is too short to spend it in front of a computer.
God bless you all.   JB


  1. Enjoy your break and relax. I hope there is a visit planned with that sweet little grandson James this summer.
    Hugs, Kim

  2. Absolutely, Julia.... You take care and relax and bubble bathe and take long naps ;)


    Don't know how you do all you do regardless!

  3. Julia ~
    We'll be waiting for you when you have time to return. Like the others have said, relax and I do hope you get to see James.
    Pug hugs :)

  4. This is a recurring theme on blogs right now and I don't blame you for taking a break. I hope the summer is good to you and I'll catch 'ya later!

  5. Julia, I am so sorry to read about your sweet kitten Victoria. You must be heartbroken. Please know you did everything possible to keep that little one alive. Let me tell you once the sun starts shining again here in Southern Maine I will be spending my time outdoors! Have a good break, thinking of you, Julie.

  6. I so understand. There just aren't enough hours in a day, but blogger friends are so incredible.

    Hurry back. I love reading about your farm adventures.

    Loves and hugs!

  7. After your nights with Victoria you need a break. We will be here when you get back. :-) Enjoy!

  8. Well said! Enjoy your time away... I look forward to seeing how you spend it! :)

    So sorry about Victoria. Definitely the hardest part of having animals.

    Blessings, Debbie

  9. Dear Julia,
    We'll miss you, but I know how important it is for you to relax and enjoy what little spare time you have.
    Take care!

  10. Julia,

    Thanks for letting us know that you're taking a break - we'd all worry otherwise! Enjoy your break, relax and know that we'll be here when you come back! Have a great summer!


  11. enjoy some time julia and we will all be here when you get back!

  12. I will miss you but certainly understand. I know I need to cut back on my computer time. You are such a busy lady anyway. Enjoy and rest a little.

  13. Have fun and I do hope you get all caught up. I know you need to rest.
    I will miss you but I look forward to when you return.

  14. I know what you mean about spending too much time on the computer. That is why I only blog once a week and why I don't have more blogger friends. I only have about ten that I truly communicate with. That way, they really feel like friends.

    Everyone needs a break once in awhile. I will have to take one in September as we will be gone for the whole month plus two weeks in October. It will be a long drive across the country and up to Ontario. At least after we get back, I'll have something to blog about. It's a good thing we have a comfortable car because we will be in it quite a lot, but will have a couple of times when we will be with relatives so can relax for a week or so at a time.

    Take care and I'll be looking for you when you return!

  15. Take a break for me too!!! Relax and I'll be watching for your return!

  16. Take a break I think that is a good idea!

  17. Hi Julia, I don't see how you get everything done that you do. I will miss your blog but will be looking forward to your return. One of the reasons that I update my blog rarely is the time it takes and summer is very demanding!
    Take care, I will be thinking of you.

  18. A lot of this going around! Have fun ~ we'll be waiting!

  19. Julia honey I understand how bad you need this break. It is hard keeping up with all that you do and then try to blog too. Whew makes me tired just thinking of it all. Often I have ask how do you do it all.
    So enjoy your break and come back when you are well rested and ready.
    I too am semi breaking because this ole place takes up way too much of my time. I don't spend near the time on here as it takes to keep up with everyone.
    So sorry about your sweet Victoria. I am trying to save a small kitten now from creatures out here. I can't keep moving her back and forth into my bathroom you I am getting way to old for this. If I can scrape up the money I am having her mother fixed and then her. lol
    Take care and know we will all be here when you get back.
    Thanks for coming by and taking a peek at my old porch.
    Believe me you would not want to see the before pic's the floor was peeling so badly.
    Love ya

  20. Julia, just wanted to say hello & that I miss you. Thinking of you!

  21. Good for you! We all need that at some time or another. Hadn't seen you around for awhile so I had to stop by and see what's up! Glad everything is okay! Have a good blog break and we'll all be looking forward to your return!

  22. I agree sometimes real life is just more fun
