Come on in and take a load off. Want some lemonade?

Why a blog? Why my blog? Good questions.

Hubby's wonderful, the children are lots of fun (and work) to have around, and life is full. While not an exhaustive list, I'm primarily a mom, wife, teacher, writer, reader, student, chauffeur, Christian, friend, patriot, gardener, cook, housekeeper, organizer, nurse, counselor, and referee -- but not necessarily in that order. That means life is crazy-busy.

I am constantly searching and learning; a few specific topics are my main areas of interest (health & nutrition, gardening, organics, politics, and history), but I find myself curious about just about everything.

Also, I like to share what I know, what I do, and what I'm learning.

So, "Why a blog?" Well, why not?

Thanks for taking the time to visit with me. Come again.

Getting started

Good morning. It's a not-so-beautiful day here in South Florida -- supposed to storm all the rest of this week. Not good. I have really been enjoying my morning swims and the frequent yard work-slash-gardening of late; I'll need to get it all in a bit earlier in the day, I suppose -- I guess I can do that.

I decided to go ahead and begin my blog. Boom! Just like that. I know, I're thrilled. I can feel your excitement as you read this. Not exactly a whim; it's something I've been thinking about doing for a while now. I just, finally, decided to jump right in. (Can I actually say that I've just jumped right in when, in reality, I've been thinking about this for a while?) I'd rather have a web page with the ability to earn some ad/etc. $, but I don't yet know how to do that. I'll be working on that soon, but in the meantime, this blog will give me a venue for sharing, journaling, venting -- the whole nine yards.

Just wanted to say, "Hi!" and get started. So, now it's official.

See ya' around. Have a great day/week/whatever.
