Fall Craftiness

Fall is here! I go through little spurts of crafty inspiration, and then it flees. I'm waiting for my next one to come on so I can make a bunting for the living room. Hope it comes before Christmas... =)

SImplicity in its Simplest State

Ahhh, I love simplicity. Just the word gives me warm fuzzies. Is that how you spell 'fuzzies'? Don't think I've ever spelled that one out before. Oh yes, simplicity. I will write could write (shying away from commitment, remember?) many posts on simplicity. Any act of intentional simplicity makes me feel more connected: to my (true) self, the human race, nature, spirituality, everything. It's one of those things that you just know is right, no questioning. Making a gift out of my son's blocks (sssshhhh, he wasn't incredibly pleased with this idea), bringing cupcakes instead of buying them (still can't see the draw in a beautiful cupcake that tastes like...?), baking bread, sitting in the park and doing nothing, hand-making birthday gifts...does it not all just feel so GOOD? Just had to throw my contentment out into the universe. Amen.

Re-visiting an Old Friend

The last three hours I successfully escaped the nearly insurmountable urge to write a blog... I was left home alone to clean (a house that desperately needed cleaning, mind you) and of course all I could think about was a blog that I haven't written in for a year. Silly me. I really do have a desire to start up a blog. I'm sure it won't be perfectly regular (don't do too well with pressure over here); I'm sure it will have a different face and voice than our blogging while in Montreal, and I'm sure it may appear slightly controversial. HA! Threw you with that one, didn't I? I'm coming to discover that I'm slightly controversial by nature... I revel in controversy...and I do need a place to voice my, um, voice. So there. Not committing (I really can freeze in the face of commitment)to anything outlandish, but I will be here time to time, so follow if you're interested. I know I may be flying solo here, writing to no one, but I'm perfectly okay with that, and maybe would even prefer it. =) (Don't take it personally...) See you soon.
