Life Update! and πŸŽ¨πŸ˜‹ Thursday Art and Dinner Date: Outdoor Furniture

Welcome my Friends, to Thursday's Art and Dinner Date! 😊😊

🎨For our 🎨 Art Date 🎨, today's optional prompt is Outdoor Furniture! Please feel free to share any art you've created, we would love to see it! And please showcase your foodie posts too for our πŸ˜‹ Dinner Date!! πŸ˜‹

I just wanted to share a little bit about what's going on with me! I needed a break from blogging to focus on my business ventures.

Most of you know that I'm working very hard on my YouTube channels and I continue to do that.

Course by Joshua George via Udemy.

I've taken many courses over the last few months on how to build a business online. I'm now in the planning stages of building two websites. One will concentrate on kitchen, garden and home; and the other will concentrate on art and host my art web store. When these sites are live, I won't be posting here anymore, but I will leave redirect links for anyone interested!

I plan to have these websites up and running in early 2024. 

I've also decided I will continue TADD! Thursday's Art Date will be hosted on my new art website starting in 2024. I will provide weekly prompts and participate like I used to. I miss it a lot! I don't know that I'll have time to participate here on Blogger  before the new year, but I'll try!

The pets are doing very well! Jack's tumour seems to have stopped growing with the addition of steroids. I'm also happy to say that Alex and I remain friends and the possibility of reconciliation is in our future. Nine months of separation seemed to have been a good thing! ☺

Canning season is coming up although the weather has been so wet here, I wonder if the local farms will have good crops this year, and if they do, I'm sure they'll be really expensive.

Let me know how you are all doing my friends! I miss you and I'll be by to visit you soon! ♥♥♥

That's all for now folks! Please check out the link widget below for more 🎨 artistic πŸŽ¨ and πŸ˜‹ delicious πŸ˜‹ creations! See you soon!!! πŸ’—

  9. So pleased to see this post and read your news update.
    You are certainly keeping busy, I wish you well with your plans.

    Enjoy this last day of August and have a happy month of September.

    All the best Jan

  10. With the month ending ,I didn't get to link up, but it sounds like you've been busy. I look forward to seeing what your new websites are going to be like. And the best news, hurrah that Jack's tumor hasn't been growing. Happy almost September to you Rain. hugs-Erika

  11. I miss you, too, Rain! You have been a bright and inspirational friend, and I think of you every day. I know that you have been working with persistence and determination to make your online websites work. I am looking forward to seeing them both. I'm delighted to hear that Jack is hanging in there. He's such a sweetheart! I'm sure that Raven can't believe her luck in landing with you. I'm also happy to hear that you and Alex may reconcile ~ but only if he's really good to you, because you are an amazing woman and deserve a really special guy in your life. I have worried about you being out in the wilds of New Brunswick on your own ~ not that you can't handle it! My sisters' gardens in the Cove didn't produce much this year. It's been odd climate-wise for sure. Take care! xoxox

  12. Long time no see. You've been busy. Take care.

  13. Excited that you will continue TADD next year!


❤ Thanks for your comment, I love hearing from everyone! ❤ Why not join me and my fellow artists every Thursday for TADD? That's Thursday Art and Dinner Date! It's a lot of fun!
