I have missed you my blogging friends. Took a bit of time to figure out what I want to be when I grow up… I feel a bit of a split personality between this blog, Wine on the Keyboard, and my blog at kaypickens.com. Known to my blogging friends and writing friends as Kacey…and my photography friends and clients and real life as Kay.
I did a lot of thinking, a lot of journaling and a lot of just staring off into space…
One thing I did realize though…I miss my blogging. I miss sharing my thoughts. My photos of silly things that catch my eye. Photos of family times. Sharing random bizarre male behaviors of the many males in my life. So, I’m going to pick up the blogging again and see how it goes.
I still haven’t figured out what to put on which blog. I’d combine them…but I try to put more of my professional photos over on my kaypickens.com blog and the fun, silly stuff here. So if I can get it all sorted out, I’ll be up and running here again.
So what’s new in our lives? Well, we got yet another puppy. Meet Murphy. I know, seriously adorable, right?
We’ve not only been acquiring things…like Murphy We’ve been getting rid of things. Donating. Giving away. Pitching what isn’t worth giving. We have a long way to go with this…but there is something so freeing about walking in the basement and seeing walls and space…instead of a ton-of-crap ™. We actually have space on the shelves in our basement storage too. Now, if I could just get up the nerve to gut my office and sort through that mess. And all the closets… This year. I’d really like to do that this year. How in the world did we accumulate so much STUFF. Stuff we don’t need. Don’t want.
Oh, and can I say that it is so nice to have my books on my Kindle instead of piling up in towers and stacks, in baskets, on shelves, in every corner of the house. Best. Thing. Ever.
Oh, and because we don’t have enough going on in our lives to keep us busy…we spent the winter looking for land in Columbia. We finally found the perfect 5 acre lot and we’re building a house. I’ll be sharing photos of the building process so our friends and family can follow along. SuperGuy and I are having SO MUCH FUN with building this house! My next post will have some photos of the start of the building process. I’m sure I’ll be asking you to weigh in on the many decisions we still have to make about things on the house!
I’ve joined a food photography group, The Inspired Plate, and I’ve been learning a lot about food photography and really enjoying it. See, I told you I haven’t quite decided what I want to be when I grow up…this isn’t a problem for someone in their 50’s is it?? (I’ve missed my smilies too!!! )
So, if any of you are around anymore, feel free to leave a comment and drop by anytime. Maybe I will figure out this whole growing up thing…maybe not…
