life rolls on

Do you ever feel like you don't have much to say? Lately I've felt quiet and introspective. I have lots of thoughts, but not much to share with the world. I think it's because I'm on the cusp of change. Not huge sweeping stuff, just life is rolling along stuff.

Kyle will be a teenager in two days. After home-schooling for two years and then home-study for one subject this year, he will be flying on his own next year. He's doing great in school, even made the honor roll. I'm very proud of him. No health scares on the horizon and mom is getting stronger every day. So, here I am on the cusp of....more freedom, less stress, more choices. It's a good place to be.

I'm still reading up on the frightening state of our food supply. My most recent read is Skinny Bitch. It's not as funny as it sounds and is downright hard to read in some parts. I'm giving up all soda and artificial sweeteners this week. I'm taking this in baby steps. The farmers market started last week, so I am enjoying local fresh produce.

I just about have the messy state of the craft room under control. Just one small pile of stuff left to go through. It's a tough business keeping the space clean. As soon as I get it cleaned up, I want to make something and then I make a mess again. I'm working on cleaning after creating, but I think the mess helps my creative process.

So glad things are all looking up for you! I have been thinking about reading Skinny Bitch after seeing them on Ellen! Happy Early Birthday to Kyle!

The food supply thing is why we started a big garden this year. Unfortunately, every critter in Orange County prefers our organic veggies to whatever else thay used to eat.

Did you know that Mercury is retrograde right now? It's a time for introspection and organization. Also time for schedules to go awry. Transportation foul-ups. I find my mind going a mile a minute with more ideas than I can possibly bring to fruition. I just let them come. I am so happy that the family health issues are calming down or gone. Best wishes to you, Tami.
