I just opened my computer for one last check and found that this year, as the clock struck midnight Stacey and Ruth were prepared with their March Marathon welcome!
Perfect timing… I’m unpacked and all my vacation clothes are washed, dried and put away. I won’t need my shorts, tees and sandals again for at least 2 months, but it was fun to be sweating in them for the last week on the Cancun Riviera.
I am sharing my good fortune, not trying to rub it into anyone’s face. For those of you who don’t know me, I have been officially retired from full-time teaching for 8 years now and that’s given me opportunities to travel when teachers and families don’t. Tuvia, my partner loves to travel somewhere, stay for a few days and then long for home. Over time I have pushed him to extend our time away….
One week in paradise was just enough for me to look beyond the cold of New York, even if March is long and cold.
Okay, I’m back after a full day. I was planning to post this much earlier but I haven’t been able to stay focused. Jet Lag? Really?
I love Slicing… I love racing to put my slice up first, but usually I’m not the first and after 5 very successful years, building their site, Ruth and Stacey has gone beyond the early years when the slicing community was intimate and every slicer could be connected with. Now, as I get ready to put this slice to bed, I can just imagine how many will have posted before me.
Last year it was overwhelming. Where do I click first, because opening to comments is a powerful experience.
So get ready for a fantastic month together Slicers.
And I’m ready to click this post to an end.
Back at you tomorrow,
