"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully."It's the same thing," he said.
After some years without my own blog (Shades of Gray), and after much discontent with Facebook, I've decided to take another look at blogging.
I'm at a point in my life where I feel the need to return to creative and gratifying projects. The past several years have been filled with work; so much work that I've had little time or energy to focus on family, house, garden, entertainment, or self-improvement. That is all about to change.
Next week I will be unemployed. We will face some economic challenges until I can find some part-time work that will accomodate my desire to return to school.
My weekend gardening projects have started to bear fruit, and I'm remembering how much I learned from my mother's gardening expertise. Besides my container garden of vegetables and fruit trees, I've been working on converting our backyard slope into a pollinator habitat of California Native plants.
I'm hoping to use this blog to chronicle my gardening efforts as well as my musings on life as an "over fifty" woman living in south Orange County, California.
