Reflections and Plans

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.

Robert H. Schuller.


Recently – that is, about a month ago – WordPress alerted me to the fact that I’ve been writing this blog for two years. Which seems like quite a while, really, since I normally give up on New Projects much more quickly. The path of my life is strewn with Grand Plans which I’ve just abandoned by the wayside.

And okay, in the first year, I lacked discipline, writing posts only sporadically, without any real direction or plan for this blog. I still don’t really have a proper plan, except in that it’s a place to chronicle and record my recipes, my sewing, and my reading.

I have, though, made several discoveries. I’m not terribly interested in writing about writing, and I’m not terribly interested in knitting, which is partly why there’s been a lack of that despite my New Year’s Resolution to learn to do so properly. I’ll make a final decision on the crochet when I get my act together enough to have a go.

Cross-stitching is more my style, and sewing, although it’s a bit of an effort while I don’t have the space for my machine or to spread the cloth out without rearranging my furniture. I feel a renewed energy about it though (we’ll see how long this lasts!), and I have plans for a few small things, just while I get my eye in again before I go to the dress-making.

So, in summary (because this is an unusually long ramble), you can expect more about food and recipes, sewing and cross-stitch, and the occasional bit about books.

  1. I really enjoy your blog, you should keep going. Remember that planning and focus aren’t everything, sometimes it’s the unexpected posts and little rambles that readers love the most. I’ve asked my readers over and over again if they’d like me to pick a topic and blog exclusively about it, and they always say no, they like it varied xxxx

    • Thanks! And don’t worry, I’m not going to stop writing, I like it too much. I’m just going to stick to writing about things which interest me, rather than what I think I ought to x
