Discovering

20 Feb

This week has been one of many discoveries.  I love the image that comes to mind when I hear the word discovery.  I imagine Christopher Columbus sailing across the Atlantic to the New World, a baby putting one foot in front of the other, an almost 30 woman realizing what she wants is to stay home and take care of her hubby and home.

Ok, that last one was about me.  You caught me.  But seriously, I love staying home and taking care of my hubby and turning our house into a home.  I love the freedom of choosing a new daily adventure, whether it’s reading Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol, spending time with my aunt and making sewing machine covers, or cleaning the bathroom.  Ok, maybe I don’t love cleaning the bathroom, but it does add variety to my day.  I love trying recipes and finding new favorites.  And spending time with you lovelies.

I’ve also rediscovered my love of reading.  I’ve always loved reading and have been a pretty avid reader most of my life.  But recently, I had fallen off the wagon and maybe read two books last year.  Two! MAYBE!!  This rediscovery is partially due to me new toy – a Nook HD.  My brother won it and didn’t want it, so lucky me!  I’ve been wanting a tablet or something for over a year.  Like I said, I love trying new recipes and a lot of them come from Pinterest.  I hated lugging my computer into the kitchen, so this was the main reason for wanting something else.  Who knew this Nook would get me reading again.  I LOVE that I can check out books from the library system.  It’s going to keep me busy for a long while.

And I love crafting.  Especially sewing and quilting.  But the discovery I made this week is that I’m afraid to jump off and try new things.  I would love to learn to sew clothes, but I’m terrified I’m going to suck at it.  Or ruin something.  And I wish I would have asked my great grandmother to teach me.  She’s made a ton of clothes!  But, I have a couple projects I need to do, so hopefully that will motivate me and get me to step out of my comfort zone.  And I’m sure everything will turn out fine, it’s just the initial jump.

I also miss my friends terribly.  I feel as though I’m drifting away from some of them.  I’m not sure what it is, but it’s not a good feeling.  I don’t live near most of them, in fact some live half way across the country.  But that’s never been an issue before.  Sure, we didn’t see each other all the time, but we’d talk on the phone.  And no matter how long we would go without talking, we’d always pick up where we left off.  But it feels like something has changed and I’m not sure what to do.  Any advice?

Phew…what a week.  So many discoveries.  And probably some I can’t remember off the top of my head.  I love the feeling of discovering something, or rediscovering something.  It makes everything new, even if it’s something you’ve been doing forever.

Here’s to making discoveries everyday!
