So, What’s Up?
It’s been around a year since I started this blog and, while I was really good about posting at first, it really seems to have fallen on hard times as of late. The blog may in fact be a reflection on my own rather chaotic state. Let’s review, shall we?
Summer (yes, I’m going back to last June - do you remember it, because I’m a little fuzzy) started of well enough. I planted my tomatoes, mourned the loss of a lavender plant and wondered what it would be like without my precious Tracey cat, who died in May. My family came to visit over the 4th of July. And then, it all started to spiral out of control. A long list of events - including the maiden Folk Alley RV voyage to Newport, StoryCorps in Akron, “Whad’Ya Know?” in Wooster, PRPD in Cleveland, numerous dates at arts events all over the region - kept me (and I know it wasn’t only me, but this is my blog) insanely busy from
mid-July through September - during which time I also adopted two kittens. Then bang, fall fund drive. Pow, Kent State Folk Festival. Wham, pneumonia. Slam, my boss (Bob, aka The King) is reassigned. All in the space of about six weeks.
Christmas was lovely (see pics), but I didn’t have time to finish all of my projects and I was still feeling the effects of the pneumonia (aka, “When are you going to shut up about how sick you were?”). January and February were filled not only with my usual awards madness but also trying to figure out how to do Bob’s job on top of mine and a cold, because I tempted fate by going back to the gym.
Now, it’s March - we’re three months into 2010! The kittens are nearly full-grown cats. The tulips are coming up, the lavender is starting to green-up and I’ve put in my tomato order (again). I’m going to go out on a limb and say that it’s ok if things are a little less “exciting” for awhile. My sister-in-law has a new job in Louisville and I’ll be visiting my family as they make a new beginning in Kentucky. I have the name of a fix-it guy who might be able to fix my sagging gutter issue once and for all. And, I want to get back to my craft of the month projects with my cousin, Robin. I am seriously alright with living a little more below the radar. If someone wants to write 11 pages of copy for the station brochure that’s due Wednesday (day 7 of the spring fund drive and the day before the Cleveland International Film Fest starts), that would be swell! I’m going to take a nap.
