It will probably be the only New Year's Resolution that I will accomplish, but here it is. I am starting a blog. Not because I dream of "Julie & Julia" (which I do) or because it is my favourite movie (which at the time it is). I am writing a blog because I want to write and I am always finding excuses not to.
This introductory blog is as awkward as a first meeting. I am feeling a little shy and you do not know me very well. What can we expect? Well, I can tell you that I have lots to share and I have my family and friends who find me fairly entertaining. Sometimes that is a good thing, other times I am good-natured that it is at my expense.
So it is a New Year...it is night...and it is quiet...with just us looking ahead to a year we cannot even begin to fathom. I am a fairly cheap date. I will blog for attention...for comments, good or bad, as I have a lot to learn here...but mostly I will share with you things that I have discovered, things that I enjoy and think you will too, and probably things that will take me out of my comfort zone. I will be piecing bits and snippets of my life to make a pattern that you can see. It is a lot like quilting, which I like to do. Or, it is like adding together ingredients of my life to serve up something that I think you will enjoy...a lot like cooking or baking, which I also do.
I was going to start off sharing a recipe for my buttermilk biscuits, but it is misplaced among the after-holiday chaos. That will then have to be for another post. But I will share it here with you and then I won't have to hunt down that little recipe card ever again. I would like to post pictures but I am waiting for my new camera to arrive. So yes, I understand that I am a little unprepared for this first meeting....but I thought it was important to get this blog started, tonight, now, and not put it off any longer. After all, it is a New Year's resolution.
