Laughter and Conversation

Whynot Pottery's 30 Year Celebration and New Earth Fabrication's Open House were both great fun this past weekend.  We had beautiful weather for the show at Whynot.  Many folks came out to be the first to try Four Saints St. Nicholas Christmas Ale, and do some shopping too.  There weren't a huge amount of people at the Open House, but those that were there were quality folks!  Chuck Brodsky never fails to delight me with his wonderful music, stage presence, and all around niceness.  A group of young farm interns were great fun, some of the funniest folks I've met in quite a while.  We let the pups out while they were still here, and it was a delight to watch them all together around the bonfire.  I can't remember the last time I laughed so much. 

I've been pondering this space here, wondering if I should continue this blog.  It seems the blogs with dedicated, commenting followers have fairly consistent content, whether that's gardening, recipes, artful endeavors, beautiful photography, homemaking, etc.  I realize this blog is eclectic, rather much like my life.  One post may be about the garden, another on my latest craft project, yet another on New Earth's latest biofuel project, the pond, or the pups. Or maybe all of those rolled into one. 

I read something that struck a chord on Maya's lovely blog, and it is that she intends for her blog to be a conversation, rather than a journal.  That's it exactly.  I know how busy we all are these days.  And I think you know I believe it's all good.  I've just learned to pay attention to where the energy flows in my life, and it feels as though this space is lacking in energy at this point.  I'm sure there will be things I want to share here, but I'm going to let go of any idea of how often that needs to be.  There are plenty of things in my life that could use an influx of good energy, and so for now, that feels right.  If you have thoughts about what you'd especially like to see here, or things you wouldn't care if you never saw again, feel free to comment.

You, my friend, have always been an awesome supporter of this little blog. Thank you so much for that!

No, I just love hearign about you and your beautiful plants and anything else you want to share. I don't get time to comment often anymore, hoping that shifts as winter comes and we are indoors more, but I love visiting your space.

I used to think about trying to keep my blog active, both in visitors and posts, but finally just realized as life crowded up that it's my journal and I'll post what I want, when I can. If others want to stop by and comment always welcome.

I see blogs with 40 or even 100+ comments and I wonder how they do it ;-)

I love your little space just as it is...comfy and cozy, and real.

Jennifer, I really appreciate your input. Plants are definitely one of my favorite things to post about here. We're expecting our first freeze, and may even see some snow flurries tomorrow morning, so that will thin the possibilities til spring.
