So, here's the deal. I have the attention span of a new puppy on crack. A strange analogy to be sure as no one should be giving their new puppy crack but it gets the point across! My entire life I've jumped from thing to thing, absorbing as much information as possible about the topic and then moving on as soon as the desire strikes.
I blame my dad ;) He's the same way. One year he decided that we were going to sell our house in Orange County, CA, move to Wyoming or Montana, and become bison ranchers. The next we were definitely going to learn to fly Cessna airplanes (which we did) and then it was all about re-building old WWII jeeps in the garage or piecing together old clocks. I grew up with it and it's in my blood. I love everything and want to be able to have a conversation about ANYTHING for at least five minutes before the person I'm talking to clues in to the fact that I'm full of it.
So, while crafting and sewing has been my thing for the last few months I'm starting to feel the itch. I still love crafting, don't get me wrong, and I'll probably do it off an on for, well...ever but there's this little demon coursing through my blood that says it's time for the next mis, er...I mean adventure.
It's already started...
In March it was chickens and my gosh they are the most amazing little creatures. Who knew I had such a capacity to love livestock? They are the happiest little buggers in the world and Chris and I spend hours and hours just watching them interact with their world.
In May it was starting a 365 photo blog and while it is challenging and most of my pictures come straight from my iPhone it's been a blast!
In June it was discovering a you-pick fruit orchard in town and canning and baking like crazy. Two batches of apricot jam, strawberry jam and a peach and a blackberry pie later and Chris and I are still going strong on this new passion but it won't last...it never does.
Oh, and I discovered that I just HAD to have yellow high heels?! Why...I have no idea :)
So what new thing will the second half of 2010 hold? I have no idea. But I can feel it coming and I welcome it...that's what life is all about anyway, right?
Happy New Adventures!
