My first blog post ever!

I’ve been contemplating starting a blog for a very long time.  It’s been easy to put it off because I lead a busy life, but today I decided it’s now or never.  Procrastination isn’t going to win this battle this time.  The hardest part is deciding the “one” thing I’m most interested in, or what genre my blogging will represent.  I can’t do that.  So, I decided that this will be a mixture of interests, a conglomeration if you will.

Since this is my first ever entry, I will strive to keep it short and sweet and then let my eldest daughter know it’s done, so I can quickly obtain my first follower.

Something is changing and it isn’t just the weather.  My interests are and somewhat dramatically at that!  Whereas I used to loathe all things crafty, I found myself in Michael’s on Saturday searching for felt, buttons and ric rac.  My mantra was always, “Why make it when you can buy it?”  But now, laid out on my dining table in all it’s glory are the materials for my newest project; making these cute little felt owl ornaments I found on Pinterest.

Stroll a few feet further and you will find the kitchen.  This used to be a place I barely tolerated.  The greatest thing about it was that it housed my coffeepot and that of course is essential.  Now, I have recipes galore, new ingredients in my pantry that I’ve only just learned existed and I have a desire for new cookware, bake-ware and am seriously contemplating buying one of those expensive mixers.

My hope is that this journey deep into the heart of middle age (or am I already there?) will prove enlightening at the very least.  Hope you will join me!


  1. Love it!

  2. Welcome to "Womanhood". I have often wondered if I was the only person in the world who loved turning 40. Middle-age is a time for a woman to celebrate who she is and to turn the competition to be recognized over to the young. I love myself (with all my flaws)and I have learned to appreciate every wonderful moment of my life. I am now 52 and still loving my life. Let's talk again when I'm 60…

  3. I love this!!! Tracey 51 isn't as bad as I thought it would be a few more achs and pains in places I didn't know I had but other than that it is great!!! We cerainly learn to accept ourselves as we are… Lisa I made the owls in brownies eaons ago! I am sure yours will be amazing can't wait to see pics of them and follow your advetures in this blog 🙂 this is Brenda I can't figure out how to make a profile in google etc 🙂 LOL

  4. I love the comment, “enlightening at the very least” because with enlightenment comes fulfillment. I trust all is well and I wish you all the best in your new-found passions. Be Well Lisa, and know who you are makes a difference…
