My friend Laurie at The Corner Slice is a wonderful writer and often uses the theme of confessions to write honest, witty, and heartwarming posts. So I thought today I would follow her model and offer some confessions of my own:
It's not a secret, but I have neglected the blog. I think my self-discipline comes in spurts, in blogging and in other parts of life. I'm a bit sad that my last post was kind of cranky and was on the top of my blog for so long, so I am pleased to solve that today.
I have four quilt tops piled up that are not quilts yet. I never do that! I used to be quite responsible, making one or two quilts at a time and finishing them completely before starting another project. No longer! I basted all four last weekend, and I have to finish them in the next month so we can deliver them to Oklahoma upon our next visit. The previously mentioned spurty self-discipline will need to kick into high gear!
I feel indignation toward people who set their bags on the empty seat next to them on a crowded bus. It's silly of me, they probably would move their bag if someone asked to sit down.
I love spring in Oregon. I don't think I will ever understand people who tire of the rain. Spring rain is so pleasant! And I had forgotten how long spring is here - things bloom for more than two weeks! We've had at least a solid month of blooming trees, azaleas, rhododendrons, and bulbs and they feed my heart every day. That said, I also am grateful for spring sunshine.
Every time I see Laurie's blog posts titled "confessions," I get the Glee mashup of the song stuck in my head. This apparently also applies when I title a post the same way. I will be tapping my foot to it the rest of the day!
