I know, I know. You thought I’d forgotten. How could I possibly forget my beloved readers?
I’m going to skip right past the “I’m so freaking busy I can hardly believe it myself” portion of the blog and get right down to business.
In an attempt to combine my desire to travel with my need for money, I’m going to apply to more events including a few out of state events this year. If all goes well I’ll be in Chicago in September, Okanogan in October, Seattle and San Francisco in November, Seattle and Portland in December. What I really want to do is travel overseas, but I’ll have to be satisfied with domestic jaunts for now. I sort of want to find a couple of pen pals in Europe. Where does one even find a pen pal these days? Hmmm….Ravelry? I’ll have to put pen pals on my to-do list.
If I could manifest a minion, I think I’d want one who can work a camera. I see these amazing food blogs and think “Why the hell didn’t I take photos of the delicious vegan gluten free plum cobbler I made last night? Why don’t I ever write down any recipes?” I see garden blogs and wish I had the dedication to photograph our garden on a weekly basis. Fine. I’ll admit it. I have blog envy.
That’s why I need a minion! Not only could they follow me around with a camera, they could take dictation that I could use to write my fabulous blog posts. And they could jot down recipes! And patterns!
I used to be much better at manifesting minions. Now we only get farm interns which are cool and all, but a minion is a totally different experience. Wikipedia says that a minion is a follower devoted to serving his/her master relentlessly. RELENTLESSLY. That’s what I need.
To be honest, I’ve had a minion or two in my day and I’d sort of sworn off of them because they can be a bit of a burden at times. However, after some years going it alone I’ve mostly forgotten the drawbacks and only remember the good days.
Oh future minion of mine, where are you?
When I find you, I will RULE the world of blogging.
But until then, my dear readers will be forced to endure sporadic blogs with minimal photos and no recipes.
Here are a few random photos some yarn, month old photos of the garden and some really cute baby ducks, a portion of our community library, my husband’s hair cut from waist length dreadlocks to short hair (again), a booth shot, and a really cute photo of the big girl who recently had her 19th b-day, at around 14 months old.
