A Blast from the Past

Published December 31, 2010 by glaumland

Around Christmas time (before if I’m really on the ball) I work on our family newsletter and try to get our website updated. I made it in under the wire this year. Whew!

We’ve had some free websites, which is good for a start, but they really don’t give you much freedom for expression & design. So I’ve been looking at some alternatives. More on that later (I hope!).

Anyway, I decided it was time to update my blog…wow! It’s been quite a while since I last posted. Guess life has been pretty busy or I haven’t had much to say. Yea, right…like that has ever happened! Ha ha.

I started re-reading some of my older posts. What a gas. I’m amazed at some of the things I’ve written about and by some of the things I’ve written. Question is, though, do I have any more words that just need to get out? Sometimes I wonder.

This afternoon I was doing some cleaning and organizing (ok, I was looking for something I misplaced) when I came across a journal I had kept for a few months a couple of years ago. It was when Little Girl was a toddler and before Little Boy was born. What a treasure! So many wonderful stories and memories that have already faded.

So once again, I’m back to blogging. And I’ll make it one of my New Year’s resolutions. It just seems that keeping these ideas and stories alive for my loved ones (and anyone else who cares to read them) is to important to let pass. Here’s a quilt that I made for my Dear Parents for their 40th anniversary. It’s a Block-of-the-Month quilt from when I was in Olathe Quilt Guild.

Well, guess I should keep looking for that lost item…oops, I mean cleaning.

Until next time…
