I can't believe it has been almost a week since I have posted here. I have been knee deep in wrapping up yearbook projects for the school that my kids attend... really knee-deep would have been ok, but it seemed more like-neck deep! It is sooo fun to do, but I am always glad to see the end product & hand it off to the kids. That leaves me with catching up to do here, in my flying lessons class & catching up on other people's blogs (which is frankly my favorite part!).

I have always been magazine-chaser. I love 'em, love 'em, love 'em. Blogs are really just an extension of that. BUT, I have always been a lurker. I almost never commented on other people's blogs. I just always thought, "Why would they care what a total stranger says?' but now I realize how fun it is to get a comment back. It's a totally different feeling and it really makes me want to blog. It makes it so much more fun.... I have to say, before I felt like that crazy person talking to herself!

This photo-free post seems somehow unfinished, but it will do for now. I'll try to edit later and add some pretty pictures. :)


  1. hope you are getting caught up ok this week Noel! thanks for your lovely comments on my painting, you are so sweet. The yearbook projects sound like fun! :)

  2. yes, you are out in full view! :)

    Thank you for sharing your perspective on mama guilt over on "my place." It is amazing that no matter what we do, we are looking over our shoulders wondering "should I be doing this another way?" And as I dropped my daughter off at summer school this morning, she skipped inside and I thought "I wish I could spend my days here!" Balance and acceptance ...

    glad you are enjoying Yarn harlot - she is such a hoot! And I learned a lot about different hand dyed yarn vendors ... I think your buttons would appear to the same audience that swoops in to buy the limited runs of hand dye color patterns. But save some buttons for me ...

  3. yes, i am exactly like you- i used to never leave comments. but the cool stuff about blogs is the community,and if you never leave a comment, and no one else did, there wouldn't BE a community. so yes, we've all gotta do our part, huh?
