A few days ago, as I was staring at my computer and doing nothing useful and feeling bad about it, I remembered how I used to look out the window when I was working. Of course, that was in the days before computers. But when I’m at school, I have a nice view of the service berry bushes all through the year. So anyhow, I moved from the couch to the armchair, and I felt so much better. Here is my view:
It’s nothing spectacular, but it helps somehow.
I’ve been thinking for a while about adding more different kind of posts to my blog. I want to keep having the recipes and crafts, but something more personal, or with more depth, to share the why as well as the how. This morning I was thinking back to when I took my first art classes at Parkland College. One of my teachers told us to use our sketchbooks as holders of everything–sketches, of course, but also thoughts, ideas, dreams, recipes, whatever caught our interest. I used to do that. It was one of the most creative times of my life. So this morning, I realized that I could use my blog in a similar way. So I’m going to give it a try. If you have any comments or suggestions, I’d love to hear from you.
Thanks for stopping by!
