Times of Change -- the beginning.
I turned 50 years old in 2013. Since then, I have noticed many changes. Yes, of course, there are physical changes. That is a given, when a lady matures, but I have noticed other changes, as well. All of my life, I have wanted, and have had, a country home with a little bit of land. A few chickens, a small garden, and a clothesline. As the years and months have passed, I find myself a bit discontent with all of that. Our old house needs a lot of work...and I mean a lot! I have lost interest in trying to do everything that needs to be done. I simply don't care. I no longer want to tend to our few farm animals...I am constantly hauling cold water during summer months and hot water in the winter, so they are staying well hydrated. My body rebels with every bucketful! It is a lot of work and I'm tired of working! I want to enjoy and have fun! I would still love to have a tiny little garden but since I can no longer physically take care of one... not to mention all the flippin' bugs around here eating everything in their path... the fun and benefits have gone out of gardening!
A few years ago, I completely lost interest in crafting and haven't ever really gotten back into it. I still crochet and sew a little but it is mostly on a "need to" basis. I don't really enjoy it, however, I will do a little, here and there, so I can eventually teach my grand daughter.
I think, after 52 years, I am in a "Time of Change". I want to "start over", in a way. I have gathered most everything that I own and will be having a yard sale. I think my Mister is on the same thought pattern, so I hope he is "gathering", as well! I want to have less stuff! I've started feeling that it is weighing me down. I need to rid myself and my home of all the clutter!
Of course, there are things that will never change and I'm ok with those things, but I have a plan! I want to move to a new home! I want to go places without having to worry about things back at home! I want to enjoy my Mister and my grands! I don't want to be burdened by things I can't change!
So...with that being said...I've started this new blog to share the changes, both those happening in my mind, body and soul, as well as the every day changes, I hope to make in the years to come!
