"What's the difference between Santa and Tiger Woods?
Santa stops at three Ho's"
It happened while I was making banana bread this morning....I had an epiphany. I have noticed that they can happen at the oddest times...like when I'm paying for groceries, or doing a Sudoku. I decided that this year I would concentrate on the things that make me happy: baking, knitting, quilting, needlepoint, and being with friends. I think a large part of my social life is conducted through the blogging medium, and it really suits me. For a while, it looked as if the art of weblogging was dying out- but that's more the rhythm of life. People come and go.
I have alot of expectations of myself, and one of them is if I can't do a great job of something, I would rather not do it at all. How realistic is that? While stirring the chocolate kisses into the batter, I thought," hey- you can't be good at everything". So maybe good enough will have to be good enough. I think I've reached a place where I'm okay with that. The only person I need to impress is myself. And possibly my husband. Maybe the next door neighbor too.
I haven't fallen off the radar completely. I have been reading your blogs and snooping in your Ravelry notebooks at your projects and stashes. I am incurably curious about what others are doing, and I get such inspiration and warm fuzzies from the connection. So, the blog will continue, and I hope to have some time to devote to posting on a regular basis. It keeps me honest, and is a bigger part of my life than I was willing to admit.
Tomorrow I'll catch up with you, show you some FO's and some pics. It's good to be here.
