Is it unreasonable to be celebrating my blog anniversary when I've been so terribly absent...and without any excuses?! Life is so much busier now than it was seven years ago. And not necessarily in a good way. How did I ever have time to post as much as I did 'in the old days'. I haven't been able to get my hands on an app for psychic-blog-composing, "Why doesn't this computer know what I'm thinking without me typing it?" It's like having two husbands. heh.
So here's my real excuse: I have been much more interested in doing creative things with my hands, thrifting, reading, hiking and visiting with live people. No offense to any of you 'virtual' people. I'd be happy to meet some time for tea!
Not to forget the barn conversion project I'm in the midst of. That is a big focus. I am documenting it well, taking photos, just not having the time to upload them! Maybe I just need to manage my time better. Oh here we go, blog as therapy. Thinking out loud to diagnose the error of my ways, "Aha! I've got it. Time management." Yeah right.
So I read that the seventh anniversary for weddings is symbolized with copper and wool. Did you know that........ "a copper pendant was found in northern Iraq that dates to 8700 BC" and "raising sheep for wool production was one of the earliest industries in the ancient world. By 3500 to 3000 BC sheep rearing was a major industry"? Boy do I feel lazy. Primitive people were making copper jewelry and wool clothes and I'm complaining, with all of the tools available today, that I can't get things done. Perspective is everything!
Wish me luck with my new "time management" scheme. Maybe I should first buy a wristwatch. Ciao for now!
