What A Busy Time of Year

Wow, it’s been a very hectic couple of weeks around here lately! I’m feeling a little scatterbrained lately. I have so many things I’m trying to focus on, and it appears as though something is going to be missed or come up short.

So why so busy? Well I came across this great website Big Picture Classes Online and it has really rekindled my interest in photography, which of course led to many more sites and reading as well as admiring the work of many photographers from all over the world.
Then there is Jessica Sprague, who you can find here. She had a wonderful free class, Inspiration Everywhere and of course I had to sign up because I’m always looking for inspiration! Add to all of this the routine Christmas knitting and Holiday cards to make, and you have a woman with a whole lot going on.
So am I accomplishing anything? I think I am to some degree. In a recent conversation with one of my sisters she asked what was going on and my response was “oh just doing too much,” and her response was “as usual”. Sometimes I do have a tendency not to say “no” to others when they are in need of my assistance but this time around I’m doing things for me. Or at least that’s what I’m telling myself, but I really believe this hyperactivity is a coping mechanism. I’ve also added the reverb10story challenge to my plate.
You see this is the first holiday season without my Mom, and I am trying to cope in the best way possible – stay busy. Now this doesn’t mean that she doesn’t creep into my mind and my activities, but boy are the days more bearable.
I’ll be posting details of all of my new adventures. I hope you will join me on this journey!
