That Is All

I've decided to suspend this blog. I'm going to make it private as it is a good journal of photos, and sources for me.


Thanks to all who have joined in the fun for the last three years. I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to meet you virtually, and in some cases, in person.


Adios.

Oh no :( Please reconsider. You dont have to do daily posts..just post whenever you want to. I can fully understand this blog thing, many times I wanted to go private and at times, even to close it. However, I am sure you have good reasons for it...when the time is right, maybe you'll pop back again in blogland. Hugs..M

Helen said...

I am glad I glanced over the blogs on my Reader today ... I will miss you, especially since you are nearly a real neighbor! I may, or may not, be back in September BUT do want to tell you I have enjoyed knowing you in blogland.

Michelle Engel Bencsko said...

Well that blows! Why not give us a post when you REALLY REALLY want to. We'll be here!

T. Allen-Mercado said...

Hmmm...I'm sure you have good reason. I'll e-mail you with my phone number. (Um, yeah...nope, you can't get rid of me that easily!)

What's this? I'm worried about this... Hope all is OK...

Golden West said...

So sorry to hear this, Charmaine. It's been fun to stop by and keep up with you. All best wishes!

willow said...

No-no!! Oh, please say it isn't so!! Can't you just leave all your wonderfulness up for the world to enjoy? Even if you only post once a week...or month, even. It's too sad to think of the bloggyhood without you. xx

Victoria said...

I consider you one of my blog friends, and will certainly miss seeing you here Charmaine. However, I support you in trusting your instincts and doing what is best for you... that is so important in maintaining balance and happiness. (I hope you keep your design blog, as I look forward to following you there!) xo Vic

Oh, I'm going to miss your updates from the desert Charmaine, I hope you change your mind and come back soon, but also wish you well for the future in case you don't

Karen from A`Musements said...

Every post you have gone to the trouble to photograph and write, has been a pleasure--- a treat--- for those of us reading, Charmaine.

I hope you'll decide to post sporadically, and give us all a dose of your wit and wisdom when you choose. Or maybe you'll decide to write a book about your High Desert Life & Times?


Either way, I think most of us will be 'here' waiting (and hoping).

Love you,
Karen

Mammy said...

Would you share what you did to your ceilings? I live in an old mobile and found your blog a few weeks ago. Love how you've changed your home over the years.

Thank you,

Danita

Fog and Thistle said...

Been there, done it, so I get it. But it does make me sad you are closing shop. Am I a hyprocrite, you bet!

I hope you'll keep in touch via email and facebook and of course come back to NY and hang with Michelle and me again. Love ya, Charmaine. xoxo

Vana said...

Sometimes it's necessary no? It's been great following you. Your posts will be missed.

High Desert Diva said...

I'll go ahead and leave this blog up for reference...I can always start a private blog/journal if I feel the need.

cheers!

High Desert Diva said...

Mammy / Danita,

We tore out the plastic and cardboard mobile home ceiling, pulled out approximately 50,000 staples and hung sheet rock on the ceiling (and walls). Then painted. That's all....

Mammy said...

Thanks for responding!

I've enjoyed reading about all your adventures both as you've remodeled your home and as you shared your adventures.

Have a wonderful day!

Danita (Mammy is what my granddaughter calls me)

Thanks so much for giving what you've given and sharing what you've shared. You'll be missed, there's no doubt ~ But for whatever reason(s) you're bidding adios, we all can understand the need to free up some areas of life. Cheers to you, and heaps of appreciation, too!

I have so enjoyed your blog, your inspiration and getting to know you in person. Thank you, Charmaine, for all that you've shared. I hope your next adventure--personal or otherwise--is as wonderful as this one has been.

Love and best wishes.....Carla

Hey Harriet said...

Oh no! I will miss your posts Charmaine! I hope you'll reconsider posting again, even if it's every now and again, sometime down the track. I hope all is well with you and that you'll stay in touch. Do you tweet? I know you Facebook, but I don't Facebook. At least I have your email :)

This is sad news but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. I fully understand that. And support it. Even if it makes me sad...

Love Tracy xo

Elizabeth said...

Gosh!
I will miss you!
You were one of my first blog-friends.
I know blogging is an awful 'time-suck' and I'm sure you have lots going on
but stop by and visit sometimes.
Again
you will be much MISSED

Michelle said...

Bye Charmaine! Yours was one of the first blogs I ever read, and always a big favorite of mine. I told you once before that your blog was like a mini-vacation from my life, and I will really miss that bit of R & R! Best wishes and happy thoughts to you and Mark, and big hugs to Trux and Cammie.

Charmaine! ♥ You will be dearly missed. I so hope you change your mind... but if not... maybe we shall still cross paths someday.

Hi Charmaine-
I was out of town and hadn't checked in to your blog in a couple weeks. Yours was one of the first blogs I started reading on a regular basis. It had humor and elegance and lightness. I wish you and your husband the very best. Hug Trux and Cammie for me.
I hope to see you again sometime in the blog world.

And thank you, too. ALthough I have not stopped by as regularly as I used to, I was always drawn to your fabulous designs and beautiful pictures. Many thanks for the happy memories.

Greetings from London.

Adios. :-)
