Truth be told, and I like to do that - tell the truth, I mean - mostly - the night I started my blog I just wanted to see if I could do it. Anything I know computer/technology/slightly mathy stuff (and I do see this as a little math-like) is self taught, and I do so love to learn new things. The Countess du Greece will object to my description of being self-taught, however.
Me: Jeeeeez, I just clicked on this thing and now I have the blue screen of death.
Countess: What did you click?
Me: I DON'T KNOW. I HAVE THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH.
Countess: Mom, what did you click?
Me: I DON'T KNOW. I HAVE THE BLUE DEATH SCREEN THINGY.
Countess: What window did you have open?
Me: er...the kitchen window is open, I think...
That was several years ago. Like maybe 10 or so. Right about the time I destroyed a hard drive by pouring a Diet Coke on it. On purpose, people, I could think of no other way to get rid of it safely. I still don't know what the blue screen of death is all about, but I haven't seen it in years. Did they get rid of it? Anybody know? With tutelage from various Dukes and Countesses far and wide, I've come to this. A blog.
For me, my blog is a place to talk 'til I'm blue in the face without interruption. Hence, I talk and ramble on just about anything. Is it a craft blog? No. Yes. Is it a foodie blog? Ditto. Is it a creative outlet unlike other things that I do creatively? Oh, yes ma'am. I have always liked to write. Side note here: my oldest and dearest friend and I once wrote a novel of epic proportions about us and The Beatles. It was voluminous. We were like, 13, so it was back when we wrote on stone tablets. She still has her copy. So, see it's in my blood and I've had vast experience. I had a college writing teacher tell me that my writing was reminiscent of Garrison Keillor. He said that at about week 9 of the class. The first week what I got from him was my paper being used as an example (to the entire class) of "atrocious" writing. I much prefer his later analysis, and I mention it in case my voice is hauntingly familiar to you. Not for bragging purposes at all. That's not my way.
So...I blog to speak. I speak about life at Fairfield Manor, my haven and an ever-changing (unless the Earl convinces me otherwise) work in progress. Life at Fairfield Manor revolves around my delicious family, good food, crafty/sewing/gluing/nailing stuff, Irish whiskey, a Pinot that I fancy, good books, my very astute observations on life and my bumpy spiritual journey. And I learn new stuff every minute. My next thing to learn is how to put a button right on the post. If I can't figure it out, I may deem it unimportant. So you see, it is a crafty blog, a foodie blog, a daily life blog, a spiritual blog....it's life at Fairfield Manor with the Lord and Lady in residence.
