Well, well, well. What better way to begin the new year than with a bright, shiny, new blog? Yes, I did wallow in self-doubt for a few days. But really. It is only seven days into the new year after all.
And so, I begin with a confession. I can just hear the ears of the interwebs perking. I am a blog lurker. Yes, indeed. I am. And a thought lurker, too. Because even as I have checked my favorite blogs, marveling at the writers' wit, charm, typing skills, beautiful photos of knicks n knacks n things....a thought has lurked in the back of my little mind. "Hmmm, Our Lady, you just might like to have a blog of your very own."
And even though it will most likely be a very shallow blog, a very superficial blog, a blog viewed by very few, it will be a place for Our Lady to....well, we shall see what it will be a place for.
I know. A photo. Now this photo did not go exactly where Our Lady envisioned it would. No matter. Just look what Our Lady has made. A pretty jar of homemade vanilla extract. Embarrassingly easy to accomplish. I imposed upon my good friend Professor J. to design a becoming label for my jar. He did not fail. He has a canny little blog of his own here. I know the vanilla is not a stitchy thing. But it is a yummy, fun thing.
