Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a great week. We are gearing up for a weekend of around 100 degrees here in the valley which is a first for the summer. Eek! What am I going to do? I guess I’ll being closing up the home and turning the AC on full blast. D will be working at the tasting room all weekend which means I’ll have a lot of time to get some things done with weekend. I’m repainting our guest bedroom a mint green. Crossing my fingers it turns out how I am hoping!
Here are my Feature Friday pikcs this week! Enjoy!
Feature Friday: My Current Blog Obsession
No Blog Obsession this week…no time to obsess
Feature Friday: Instagram
On Monday I lost a very important part of me…my finger tip. I was slicing some zucchini with a very sharp Mandolin slicer and on the first slice, whamo! Gone!
Immediately it was gushing and after four hours it hadn’t stopped and I went into Urgent Care. Fortunately, I didn’t have to get stitches because honestly, there was nothing left to stitch, but they did have to cauterize it and wrap it up. It hurts, it throbs, and it itches. Not to mention, it’s pretty hard to type. BUT, it could have been worse and I consider myself lucky. I’m not joking when I say I cut myself EVERY single time I cook. It’s no wonder D wont teach me how to use the various saws in the shop. One day I hope.
Feature Friday: A Little Blog Soul Searching
Lately I’ve been giving my blog a lot of thought.Well actually, I’m always giving my blog some thought. To be honest, I’m not 100% happy with the direction I have taken it. I never intended to make it all about DIY or recipes but somehow I felt the need to always post about those things because it’s what people seemed most interested in seeing or because I could link up to more blogs and get a little more exposure. The original intent was not that though. I always wanted it to be a lifestyle blog featuring bits and pieces of all aspects of what our life is like, the good and bad, and especially focusing on the parts that reflected my transition from city life to country life.
I’m not saying I’m not going to post about the projects I do because really, that is a part of me I discovered when I moved into my own home as is our new journey of cooking vegan and gluten free goodies, but I am going to post a lot more on things going on in our life, on the vineyard and farm. I hope to share a broader picture and incorporate the bad as well as the good. Life is wonderful but there are moments that aren’t. That is life.
So here I am telling you all that I’m going to be a little more vulnerable starting now. The good, the great, and the ugly.
I want to share more on my struggles and more on my accomplishments, more on personal growth and when I feel lost along the way. I’m human and I’m not perfect and I never want to mislead my friends and readers that I think I am.
So here is to a little vulnerability and gettin’ a lil’ more real on here.
