It’s Spring, not officially, but with the temps hitting 50+ today, only half-way through February, the fever has struck. The garden catalogs started to arrive weeks ago and I have a list of seeds to buy that is itching to be purchased. And, the fact that tomatoes need to be started pretty soon may be a major motivator behind my need to hop online and get to spending.
All of that means that there is a lot in the works at Chez Muse. The Mister to my Missus has tapped maple trees for syrup season. The bees are going to be active. The barnyard is one big, sloppy mess; plus the barn needs cleaning (guess what I’m doing tomorrow).
So, what does that mean for the blog? It means I’ve a crap-ton of “good intentions” in the form of drafts half-written, requests for pieces for other places, and I’m still not done with a hat I’ve been crocheting on for the last two years. Well, that didn’t have anything to do with the blog. That was really just more of a complaint. I’m seriously hoping I get that hat done this weekend.
On to other subjects.
Thank you to those who submitted questions for me to answer from last weeks blog, whether you wrote them in the comments or via Twitter. People aren’t as interested in knowing about me as I was led to believe given that I got less than ten questions, but honestly, that makes less work for me so we’ll call it a win. But, there is still time to get questions in for the idea I have. The more questions I get, the more videos I’ll make.
So, what IS going on with my blog? I’m still working at it. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s not; but even when it’s not – at least it’s honest. It’s still there, still on my mind even while I’m working at my day job, and working around the farmstead. What can I write about that people will find interesting? Not an easy subject when I feel like I’m pretty uninteresting and anyone reading will be bored by what I think is normal, everyday stuff.
Admittedly, my writing does take on a feel of a journal entry. And, maybe that’s what makes people read it in the first place. As one of my dear friends once said, “It’s like reading a letter you wrote to me”.
So, I raise my coffee mug and tip my head in thanks to those of you who continue to read the bad posts and stick around for the good. I must be doing okay.
