I realize that my blog has become a bit of feast or famine for my few readers that I have left.  I either feel like I have something to share or I do not have something to share.  But what I do know for sure is that I like to blog.  I always have.  So, let's try it again.

Blogging for me is a lot like weight loss.  I know I can do it.  I know how to do it.  I see other people do it and it looks relatively easy, but I just get so darn tired or cranky and don't WANT to do it.  I know it is good for me and I will enjoy the outcome, but sometimes I am just too tired or bored.

As of tonight, these are the things that I am into...
EMBROIDERY - I just can't help myself with this craft.  You don't have to have any talent and you can hardly mess it up.  It's just dishtowels and it gives me a sense of satisfaction that I have not gotten for a long time with a craft.  I am not finished with this owl, but I have done a squirrel, but he's in the wash.

I am searching for a Dala Horse pattern right now.  I would also like to find some Arrested Development embroidery or Mad Men embroidery.  I am pretty sure it has to be out there.  Wouldn't you like to dry your dishes with Don Draper?

SOUPS - Without knowing it, I have collected several delicious soup recipes and I am kind of obsessed with adding to the recipe box of soups.  My lastest favorite comes from Jamie, chicken gnocchi soup!  So good and hearty.  

Someone said to me recently that I was "old-timey".  I was not sure what to make of this comment since I consider myself to be savvy with my smart phone and computer and such.  After some consideration, I agree.  I am old timey.  I think my current interests proves it.
