Why do I feel like I'm writing in my diary and doing the opposite of blogging? And let's be honest, who's really reading my rambles? It's okay, "I ain't mad". If I had valuable content to share, I would be more excited about blogging. Not that I'm NOT excited, but.... See, this is already getting wordy. Anyways, it's important that I blog, according to my marketing guru lady friend. She works for a social media company (perk) and she's like..."You NEED to do this and don't forget this and don't forget to blog, collab, pin, IG, tweet, adjust SEO...." Gah! I think my brain shut off at 'tweet' because I'm not a tweeter. One day I will be cool enough to figure it out. Until then, you can find me here (rambling) or on Facebook. I do fancy the Instagram community too! I've met some awesome maker friends there who are amazing activist for #womansupportingwoman. Pinterest is like, duh? Look at my pins. You will think I'm one hungry, DIY crafting girl who needs inspirational words and sarcasm to carry on with my days. That's only 90.67% true. Also, I should warn you. I have a board solely dedicated to zucchini. My garden (which isn't crazy huge) produces a ton of zucchini each year and I can't use or give it away fast enough. Oh, and does anyone have a killer shepherds pie recipe? I'm talkin' old school Grandma-style recipe. No shortcuts. Except the dough. I'll box pie crust that without judgement, thank you very much.
I'm so glad we had this blogging talk!
On to more important things. Do you remember December's dumpster findings? The Weber grill? Weeelll, I scored another totally awesome piece. Before I say anymore, I'm holding my head high and would like to add the following disclosure: I don't drive around looking for dumpsters to snorkel through, okay? I don't. I have a 'big girl' job where I manage luxury apartments and you would just be surprised what people throw away. SRSLY. So, do I peruse through the big black enclosures where no one can see me once a week? Yea, I do. So, here it is. My January snorkel treasure. A custom motorcycle stool for my new workshop that is currently under construction. Bingo! I will tell you that this thing is comfy and adjustable in height; however, there is some serious core usage while sitting on it so no vino for me while working, unless I stand.
All in all, the start of the new year has been good to me. I'm bidding farewell to January and welcoming February with open arms. It's my favorite month. My favorite color. My birthday. My daughters birthday. A planned trip to NYC with my 6-year old who is going to FLIP OUT when we go to the American Girl store. Big stuff, people. Very excited. Oh, and I know what your thinking. What should I get Kim for her birthday? Just send me an email we'll hash it out.
By the way, my 2017 word is 'overcome'. I need to do a lot of that this coming year. It's a personal goal for me.
Until next month...
