I guess it's pretty obvious I haven't been that into blogging lately. There was a time I was blogging everyday. Now, I'm lucky if I blog twice a week. Honestly, I don't know what's wrong. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that I'm still in a state of limbo. Yes, it looks like this house thing is going to come to fruition, but until we close, I'm still in waiting mode. I'm "in between," and I don't do good with "in between." I'm a woman of action. Once I get something in my mind, I'm ready to accomplish it right away. I have so many ideas and plans for this new house, but right now, that's all they are, ideas and plans. I'm ready to make them a reality. I can't wait to get in that house and get my hands dirty! As for now, I wait. I guess I should be enjoying this down time, the calm before the storm of unending and overwhelming work, but that's not my nature.
The thing I'm most excited about in regards to the new house is that my kids will finally have their own rooms. I've been online a lot lately picking out things for each of their rooms. I even started using Pinterest to create boards for each of them. It was fun going around the Internet pinning items that I thought they would like. In fact, I think it really helped me release some of that pinned up (pun intended) creative energy. I actually felt like blogging today.
I've had this jacket for a couple of years now, but it hasn't received much love. It's pretty light weight and is only practical on those few days of 60 degree weather in the Spring and Fall. This day was one of those such days, so I took the opportunity to pair it with one of my newer purchases, the Fluttering Floral dress. Speaking of fluttering floral, on the way to dinner Jerry and I spotted this patch of flowers on the side of the road. I really loved the poppies. Jerry was especially enamored with them. I caught him pointing the camera at one particular poppy a few times instead of me. I found myself actually jealous of that damn flower. Sad, I know.
Pairing an old item like this jacket with a newer item like this dress got me thinking about my situation. I seem to be really uninspired right now because I'm waiting for an old chapter of my life to close so a new one can begin. Maybe the solution to my problem is to enjoy this time in between chapters. Never again will I have the fun of planning for a home without the responsibility and stress of actually owning it. After all, planning is usually the fun part. There will be plenty of time for work in the weeks to come.
