Hi there, everbody!
How's your weekend going so far?
We've been having fun.
Last night was Family Movie Night,
so I introducted my boys to the original
Karate Kid with Ralph Macchio.
Now we're hearing a lot of
"Wax on, wax off,
Left-a-circle, hei! Right-a-circle, hei!"
It's quite amusing. ;o)
After I tucked my little Daniel-Sans in bed,
I decided to get a little crafty,
I clicked on one of my favorite color challenges,
and was immediately inspired.
Don't you love it when that happens?
I immediately thought of a barnyard scene,
which was perfect, because my new Lawn Fawn stamps
just arrived in the mail,
and it gave me the perfect opportunity to ink up
After that, I still wasn't tired,
so I decided to log on to my old computer
and read through some of my short stories
and novel beginnings.
For those of you who don't know,
writting has always been my number one passion,
but a crippling case of writer's block hit me
last January, and I haven't written a single thing since.
I was really starting to believe that maybe I'd only
imagined that I had talent as a writer,
and that, in truth, I probably wasn't very good after all.
Reading through some of my pieces last night,
I discovered with tears of relief that some of it
was actually pretty darn good.
I've been lost in the woods for a long time now,
but I think I am beginning to see the light through the trees
on the other side. Let's hope so.
With that being said, I'm off to my writer's group,
and then to work.
Have a lovely Saturday!
