I have noticed that many bloggers come and go with their blogs. Some write daily with such diligence, it embarrasses me. Some write 3-5 times a week with regularity. Others write VERY infrequently. I seem to go in seasons. When I get started writing, there is no stopping me. It consumes me. Everything I do, I consider, should I blog about this???? But when I stop...I STOP. I don't even think about it and I hardly even read my friends' blogs. I make a complete break. But...I miss it. I miss writing about my days. I think that one day...maybe my kids will get a kick out of reading my thoughts. Maybe not...but I enjoy writing. It fills my soul. I go again.

I have signed up for Dishrag Tag again this year. This is the one knitting online communities I stay in touch with. I don't think I have missed one yet. I have met some very interesting people doing this. Some I'm still in touch with, others who have gone by the wayside. I look forward to what this year will bring. Stay tuned to see which pattern I choose and see the final product.

One distraction from blogging has been facebook. I have really enjoyed getting back in touch with many lost friends on this network. I have enjoyed being nutty and crazy with them. I have enjoyed exploring the preachers' wife role with them, I have enjoyed seeing how their lives have played out. I am inviting several to come visit me here. So watch out for some CRAZY comments.

I have also begun to explore art again. While in Asheville before the mother/daughter camp out, I went into an art store and invested in a good sketch book, pastels, a good pencil, some colored pencils and a sharpie! I have gotten such a kick out of drawing and coloring. Last night I simply drew with a black sharpie, several items of clothing and then colored them. It was amazing the high I got from that simple outlet of my creativity. Whew!!! Maybe I'll find a way to share those on here.

Okay, that was a pretty good start. I may try to catch everyone up later......or maybe not! You'll have to stay tuned to see.

Until next time,
Mrs. M
