In the begening.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Susan and I am 40 years old, yes I'm feeling old. I really didn't think I would, but here I am fatter, less active and sicker that I have been for the past 4 years. Hmmm, I do think there is more to that than just turning 40, but maybe that will come up later.

I never saw myself as a blogger, but come on, I have to keep up with the Joneses don't I? I was feeling left behind. I think it is such a curious phenomenon that we are so interested in others getting to know us. I'm not a shy person, but I am an introvert and not very outgoing. So here I am, like so many others bearing my life to the public hoping like so many that others would find me entertaining, interesting and that I really do have something worth saying every once in a while. I like to write, although I'm not that good at it, I do love it.

I also am not that great at being creative, but I love to try. I have friends that can be given a bunch of "stuff" and come up with the most wonderful creative thing you have ever seen. me, I have to see it, research it, copy it and try to do it better. I think that creativity like so many other things in life just take practice, and it is a learning process. So, that is one of the many journeys I'm on right now. This blogging business should keep me accountable and inspired to take more pictures.

For example, my passion now is creating jewelry. I had not done much of it in the past two years for several reasons, but one of them is having the space to do it. You know, not having to clear the table every time it was time to eat. So one of my recent projects was to create a workspace in my tiny house. I'm so excited and I will be sharing pictures but, I didn't take any before pictures. Grrr.

More later.

  1. Welcome to Blog Land. It is and will always be a love-hate relationship for me! I posted about it back in January.
    I do love it because it lets me be creative without the mess! You will be able to relate to that. I don't have to clean off the kitchen island to accomplish anything. :) But then I hate it because I feel compelled to make every cute thing I see. :)
