Winter musings while playing in the snow and having nice strong coffee...
Have not blogged in ages! Some part of me loses momentum quite often...
New year resolutions? Haven't had a chance to come up with many but I have been thinking about life at 37. I really never pictured myself getting to this age and it's finally sunk in that I am a grown up. If that sounds silly, I know. I have known I am a grown up since I turned 30, but lately I finally felt in my bones that I can do what I want. No body else cares and it's expected anyway.One new years thought is that I am done with parenting books and "experts" who just help me to undermine my abilities. Being so tired leaves open a very tender spot that easily gets doubtful about every decision made, so I am going to avoid triggers as best I can. Look at this kid- I am doing great!
stripes and polka dots and bright colors- love them. Every day. Who cares if I look like a 9 year old on Halloween? That's my thing.
Coffee- saves the day every day- drink up. tea works a charm later on in the day.
Pinterest- pure awesome. Every time I feel bummed out, a good dig on pinterest and I feel inspired again.
Friends who think like me- no more asking advice from people I know think totally opposite to me- it only pokes my tender insecure spot and makes me feel bad for days. Who needs that? Making stuff- got some ideas, starting to feel juices flowing again. It makes me feel better. Need to do it or perish. And in conjucntion, blog about it. I felt that 2004 was my blogging zenith ( i know , ages ago!) and that the blog world is so saturated with stuff, who needs me? But you know, its fun and it keeps me motivated so I willl try and find time to show you the nimbly little things I make here and there again. If infact there are any "you s" still coming on by to visit! I have always been more of a turtle than a hare. Slow and steady wins the race.
happy new year world. lets get cracking.
