Here are the updates one what i DID accomplish. I copied and pasted from last Tuesday, and then edited to update.
Prepare for disappointment -- and also, inspiration. You'll have to hold out for the end of the blog to read the best part.
Thing One: Learn
I haven't learned anything about a hero yet, but i have
Thing Two: Photograph
Have you found my Thing Two Blog? It's where i'm putting my photographs for photographic collection. I think
Thing Three: Create
**Week Three: Happily, people think of me, and even though i didn't make it to the yarn store (will someone please open a yarn store very close to me?), i have been given some lovely variegated bluish yarn that will be great for this project. --Thank you, Robin!<3 p="">
Thing Four: Give
This one did not get away from me this time. It simply landed in my lap. I am very thankful for the opportunity, which i am not going to tell you about.
Thing Five: Share
This one also sort of landed in my lap. But the landing in my lap method doesn't really satisfy the heart of the Humble Challenge. I have nine more days.
Thing Six: Teach
Thing Seven: Live
My problem here, is procrastination. I started to say that i had a crazy week, but in truth i had a crazy weekEND, and since i procrastinated my weekly goals to the long MLK weekend, and my long MLK weekend took an unexpected turn, i didn't do the things i said, within the time allotted.
HOWEVER, i DID build a Humble Kitchen blog. I spent some late nights working on the header for that one and the new header for this one. I intend to fill it up with tons of fun recipes in the very near future.
Speaking of kitchens and blogs, a friend said something really nice to me this week that has inspired me to pursue the cooking thing more seriously. Up until now i've only dabbled. This is my friend who got to see part of our yet uncompleted video. Here's what she said:
"Most of us find the inspiration to cook from every day people, not the ones that are commercialized and 'perfect.' We want the lady next door to show us how to make the food that we feel we can actually make. I am a fan for sure."
Thank you, Amanda. You inspire me. Your words may follow me a long time. 3>
