I received a phone call from an old friend last night. We haven't had a physical conversation in a couple years at least. It seems funny catching up with someone with all the social media around. You kind of already know what's going on in their lives, but not the details. This is why I enjoy a good old fashioned phone call or cup of coffee once in awhile.
To the point. I found myself at a bit of a loss as to what to say about my own life. Especially without theatre anymore I feel like my life is so boring to talk about, and not everyone wants to hear about my crochet projects. It got me thinking about this blog a little, too. I started it a few years back so my friends and family members that live far away could keep tabs on what's new in my life. But in recent years it's really just turned into a crochet blog. Which is great, don't get me wrong, but doesn't say much about life in general. (insert Peter Griffin "EH? EEEHHHHHH?! joke here for saying the title)
So... yeah. I need to post about me more often I think, but I just don't know what to say. Life's good. I love my job. Been at the same place for about 5 years now. I've been working more with the IT department lately and I LOVE it. My boss is awesome, and the department is as well. I'm thinking of taking some classes to help improve what I can do for the company. God, I sounded like a stupid grown-up there! Ugh.
Home is awesome. I've been working on cleaning out the house, as you well know by now and getting things flowing better at home. It's starting to settle into a stasis now, which makes me deliriously happy. I still pick here and there fixing this area or that nook or this closet to make it just slightly more efficient or clean out more things. In fact, I'm taking a large load of things to the church tonight to donate to our massive yard sale. It always feel good to take a load of things out of the house. But for the most part things at home flow well now.
Church is alright. Our new pastor is really great. I'm still teaching Sunday School, but not as often. We only have 2-4 kids that ever come and they don't come every week, so some weeks I have off. We're still struggling to get people in the doors, but lord knows I'm awful with outreach. And most of my friends or folks my age are either Atheists or just aren't the church-goin' type. And I'm not the kind of person to push religion on anyone. During my atheist years, I hated that more than anything else in the world. But that's another topic entirely.
Anyway, this turned into a very broad general, "this is my life" post. Yawn. But regardless I'll try to post more often and about other things besides just crochet. But fear not, the crochet posts will remain!! That does seem to be the focal point anymore anyway!
Before I go, a photo. I saw this on my way home from my parents' house on Sunday evening:
Peregrine Falcons call downtown Columbus home. I stalk a webcam of one of their nests on the 42nd floor of the Rhode's Tower here. You can hear them screeching in the sky all hours of the day and night. I just love it.
Ok, I'll stop boring you now. I hope everyone is well, much love and happy thoughts!!
