Then again...

Well, well, well. Look who we have here. Oh. It's just me. ha! I realize that my absence has been relatively prolonged, sorry about that. A lot has happened since I last posted anything of great interest... ok well, at least anything of any interest  :P... but we shall get to all that later perhaps.  A friend the other day said "so many thoughts, so little time...", which I countered "so little thoughts, so much time...".  I will admit I was feeling somewhat guilty about this, but he encouraged me saying that it is natural to feel a bit emptied out after graduation.  I think I'm feeling a little more than that, but that is ok.  At any rate, I made some changes trying to find some sort of focus for the time being.

As you can see I've been switchin' it up a little bit. Decided it was time for a new background -- but I must say, this isn't turning out so well.  The first one (stucco looking) was admittedly a little bland, and well, this new one seems a wee bit over the top. Even for me!  We shall have to see how it goes... feel free to yay or nay. Speaking of the ol' blog - Welcome to Vatche for joining the weird world! First came across his blog from The Teacher's View (one of my favorite fyi!)... Anyway, he has some great insights and writings to share over at his blog The Student Writer's Mind. Check it out! 

Also I gave up facebook for 30 days. This has given me time to read several books (half way through book four, not too shabby... no wait, make that five, I reread Beowulf...does that count?) and get some writing done, however short. It has not however given me time to clean my room yet. weird. More time to work in the orchard with the irrigation system we are installing, every other day, incidentally, since the rain comes and goes, and to clean up around the place, fixing fences and chicken coops and what have you.

The facebook thing has been a little hard, but this is day ten and I don't think that I will fall short of the thirty days. It gets easier as the days go on, for several reasons. At any rate I stand to gain a book of my choosing if I last the month. Woot!

Well, that is all for now.

Glug. Finally, the coffee is starting to work. I should really get more rest. What’s this about graduation? I feel terrible — I was going to get you a new car, or maybe a pair of pruning shears. I hope you’ll forgive me for being late.

These wild drapes make me feel like we’re in some sort of weird tea room. Is that why there’s no writing on the spines of those books?

Oh darn, William, I've been pining away for the UPS truck for weeks now! Wait, does UPS deliver cars? My Hot Wheels collection is sorely lacking in some areas! :P ...
The few weeks before and after graduation were a bit crazy and I sort of let the old blog have some time to itself, but I shall post about it sometime in the near future. I forgive you though for not knowing intuitively. You should really get more rest :P
I know, the red and velvet seemed like a good idea, so much for that. It was somewhere between ritual vestments and red light district. Either way, it was indicative. Of what, I'm not quite sure, but I need some tea...

Well, I’m thinking of something stronger now. And I just found some chicken wire. I can send you a roll. Better yet, maybe you can find a chicken wire background. I mean, this one has been up for a couple hours now. Time for a change. Or I could try it on RBL. Bawk!

Hey, Cassandra, thank you for welcoming me and for your kind words about my blog! :)

Also, congratulations on your graduation! :D

Lastly, I say "Yay" to your new template, it looks pretty cool!

Write on!

P.S. Good luck with the whole giving up on Facebook thing for 30 days and your reading! I'm sure you'll succeed.

How far are you? Do you write anything good anymore? anything at all? And William needs to share his chicken wire; I need some in my garden. And my room is clean, so I deserve it more. :P Or something. I don't know. Coffee sounds good. Coffee in the afternoon usually sounds good.
