Gum trees at Hahndorf
January. Another year has begun. Hard to believe because I don't think I'm quite used to writing 2010 yet and it's over! 2010 was a fairly uneventful year for me (Perhaps not. The birth of a granddaughter and the wedding of a son have just sprung to mind.) and 2011 looks to be a little more action packed. We are starting with a move in January. Where too? Not sure yet. Have to pack and move though! I'm sure we will find something! - Gosh! That's very glass half full of me. Perhaps that's a confidence I'm not actually feeling in real life. The "blog me" is just a tad superhero I think. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound and overcome crippling doubts in a single post! So, I'm packing. It's three weeks till moving day.
I am also excited about 2011 because I am going to do more art quilting. This is something I have longed to do for years now, but was too afraid to try. (What's with that whole scaredy cat thing? Why do we do that? It's so crippling!) I have discovered that if I want to produce some art I need more visual input. More inspiration. I do get plenty of input here on the internet (that's my excuse for all this surfing and I'm sticking to it!), but I think I need to take more photographs and see more exhibitions. I haven't produced a comprehensive list of "want to"s for 2011 yet. I'm still thinking about it. I have loved reading everyone's 2010 wrap ups and their 2011 lists. It has been inspiring!
Oh. And this is my 600th post. I thought I would hit this milestone in 2010, but a case of uninspireditis kept me from posting much in December. I had a bit of a slump in December. Too tired and too headachey to be too cheerful I think. I have had a pretty good week this week though. Glad to be finished with Christmas (Bah Humbug!) and with two kids away holidaying in Sydney (Misses 24 and 18) life is simpler. It's a numbers thing. Much easier to be fewer than more, it's not a reflection of the kids who are away! We have had a fun week with the three youngest kids left at home. Just the five of us.
