Making a little progress!

So, the quiche for dinner is in the oven, and that means I have a little time to play here.

If anyone is reading this, check back in a few days; I am going to be building my side bar. Many of the links will be to the same sites as my old blog- my interests have not changed a lot, just grown. So, there will be some new sites to check out as well.

My goals for this blog are simple- record for myself my crafty and artistic activities, share them with anyone who wants to read them, and create a sort of online diary that, like my old blog, will be something for me to go back and re-read to remind myself of both good and bad in the past, and enjoy the current in perspective.

So, if you like books, needlework of many kinds, tatting, crochet, loom knitting, quilting, especially Hawaiian quilts, photography, scrapbooking, both paper and digital, stamping and other papercrafting, genealogy, music, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Sherlock Holmes, geeky stuff, anything Disney, retirement living, and whatever else I happen to decide to post about, you will be welcome here. This is SOOOO NOT going to be a dedicated blog, lol!!!

BTW- the title of this blog comes from the movie White Christmas. The song "What Do You Do With a General (when he stops being a general)" runs often in my head, being as both my husband and are now retired teachers. We are going to see just how wonderful retirement can be.

Well, I really didn't get off to a good start, did I????

So, I started this in January, and was going to be really good about posting, right? Well, we can all see, if there is even anyone reading this, how well I did with that! But I am not giving in or giving up- just slowly working my way into it- yeah, that's it, lol!

So, how much are the two teachers enjoying retired life? We are LOVING it. We have had a lot of company already, and everyone seems to really like where we live. How could they not???

So' there really is no particular point to this post, except to say that I will be taking some time in the next few days to build my side bar with links to blogs and companies and such things that I like.

I want to share some of the wonderful things I have found. So, keep up the faith, and I will be back soon.
