Ecards, Puzzles, Oh my . . .
I’ve been busy
I tried doing nothing for awhile but that got old very fast. I decided to swing back and pick up the work I had started in 2015 and then again in 2017 and now hopefully with better results in 2020. That is blogging about life in and about Vancouver, Washington.
It seems that blogging about “me” as in this site “PattyGrasher.com” gets a bit heavy. I’m not really doing anything exciting enough to really talk about – but finding something outside of self has much more possibility.
So even though I let the domain I was using ExploringVancouverUSA expire I found that ExploreVancouverUSA was available and I liked it even better so I grabbed it and since then I have been off and hobbling. I would say running but as I get older a slower pace seems to be the order of the day.
At any rate I have started an eCard site with it and Vancouver themed puzzles available for the moment mostly from the home page. There is of course tons and tons of work to be done with it – and I have no idea that it will go anywhere but I’m hoping and it keeps me happily occupied. And since I have started this “Vancouver” theme work twice before I am able to use a lot of the materials, images, etc. that I previously did.
So that is where my time and energy has been directed. And while in the past I tried to keep multiple plates spinning at the same time I’m not really up to that for now. So this site is staying up – but it’s sort of in hibernation probably until Spring. Maybe once a month check in.
And I would suggest you could join up with the mailing list if you wanted to stay connected with the Explore Vancouver USA posts – but I don’t really have that up and running yet.
Keeping Sane during Election and Covid
I have found the self isolation and the overwhelming Election drama going on that it all seems a bit much. So I’m reading books for enjoyment more, playing a few games on my Kindle and mostly just working on the new site and finishing up the family cookbook.
Hope all of you are staying safe and healthy. We do have one extended family member hospitalized with Covid 19 which makes it all much closer to home and more scary. Please wear your masks and stay safe!
Love to hear from you in the comments or an email and I apologize for sort of dropping off radar but . . . my coping skills have good days and ho hum days. 🙂
If you would like, please add “your” three gratitude moments in the comments. It’s a great way to pick up your day and it’s fun for the rest of us to read!
- Beautiful fall day
- Grateful for the “Serenity Prayer,” to let go of what I can’t change and work on what I can.
- Grateful for all of you who continue to stay connected through thick and thin!
