So I just realized that it’s been almost AN ENTIRE YEAR since I posted anything of substance on Dirt. Yeesh, you guys. This is what happens when life just runs over you like a freaking steam roller.
I have loads of stuff going on right now, but unfortunately, for personal reasons I can’t post much about it at the moment. I am going to start putting together some articles behind the scenes at least and I will make them public just as soon as it’s possible to do so.
I miss having time for projects. Fun projects. Ones where I make creative stuff and get covered in something besides layers of house dust, house paint and countertop coating. I’ve spent the past year cleaning, moving stuff, remodeling a house. Hence the reason my creative ventures went by the wayside for a bit. I was creating, just nothing blog worthy. I’ve been in maintenance only mode on the landscaping also, which doesn’t make for much to post about… “Mowed the yard again today, weed eating done around beds, sprayed driveway with Roundup, blah, blah, blah.” Yeah, not even remotely interesting.
I was at least posting pictures of walks with the dogs on FB in the spring, but then my knee decided to swell up like a balloon and after two rounds of shots, I’m JUST NOW getting to the point where I don’t limp every time I walk.
I looked around today after getting all the housework done, laundry caught up, can’t work in the yard because it’s been too wet this week (FINALLY!!!) and realized “I HAVE NOTHING THAT HAS TO BE DONE TOMORROW!!!!” Which is some sort of miracle and perhaps should be declared a national holiday. Probably a meteor will fall on the house while I’m driving the kid to school.
Sans meteor, I’ll be working on the kid’s Halloween costume (Tom and I are recycling past costumes this year, only had time to work on one.) I’ve also started this really cool project that I’ll be doing a post for soon. It’s an artsy thing, not gardening related, but still cool.
I’d love to talk about the rest of what’s been going on, but that must wait a bit longer.
This is just to let you all know, I’m not dead. I’m just busy. REALLY REALLY busy. But it’s all going to be worth it in the end, at least that’s what I’m trying to convince myself. =)
Pictures, art and posts of substance soon.
