Hello Friends :)
You know what is just awesome? The unexpected sense of community which is growing out of this blog. Who would've thought? ;) Honestly, for all the cristicism and bizarre things that come out of online interactions, I am currently seeing even more of the positive points.
I'm not sure when the shift came. At one point I was just publicly journalling the bizarre step we were taking in our life. Then I started reading what I was writing and seeing just how crazy it all was. Now, I'm chopping veggies and chattering to J about this new peer or that point of feedback, and laughing with my MOM (hi mom :) ) about the events and photos posted on here. Very cool.
I received a TypePad subscription for Christmas (the platform that the 'real' bloggers use ;) ). I want to get it set up but I want to be sure I can import all this stuff over. I mean, I'm only now building a group of followers and comments and I don't want to start from scratch, so I'm hoping it will be a smooth shift. Ideally I'll be ready for 'the move' in February.
J and Jem were chatting while I prepped supper (a glorious pub-grub fare this evening) and in their banter and story time he asked sweet Jem, "faith can move mountains, but can mountains move faith?" I stopped and laughed as it was such a perfect question. How often do we boost on our beliefs and ideals and 'faith', but then cringe and falter and allow obstacles to move us? Oh the things that come through conversation with children.
What a random post! Truth be told, I just feel so carefree and would love to chat about all kinds of things with the collective 'you' out there. Today began so shadowed and limited but the afternoon brought light and laughter as my son and i danced and cooked together while J worked (and worked and worked....) on the ranch grounds. The evening is beautiful and I feel as though I have fallen into a perfectly illustrated story book. My husband is washing the dishes, the fire is glowing, my sweet bambine is tucked away, and I have a hours ahead to create with words and then snuggle down with books or a show or perhaps a piece of chocolate.
Anyways. Whatever random points this day has presented to you, i wish you laughter and energy to embrace them with adventure and glee.
