A learning experience for all of us

I think I shall write books, and get rich and famous; that would suit me, so that is my favorite dream. Louisa May Alcott

I'm loving the quote of the day on my blog! As a child Louisa May Alcott was my favorite author and a heroine to me. I completely wore out my copy of Little Women! I saw myself as her...writing books and becoming rich and famous. Can you imagine that?! Instead I blog lol..

So today I'm going to tell you about this neat thing that was #2's idea and it's going to be great! We have an old wooden shed in the yard that she's been working on, and with the help of a contractor relative it will be airconditioned, water proof and all..it will be finished before the summer so that's a good thing. It will be our little hideaway, private space if we need it, or a place to share if we need that too. We both write, I paint and she has hobbies. So does #1 so it will kind of be a hobby place! Hubby takes photographs and wants to start doing portraits so he'll set up a portable studio in there for that. I really think it will work out to be very nice, enlarge our living space and maybe even be something to bond over :)

I named this blog, My Journey....because that's what it is. A journey, a learning experience. But not just for me, for all of us. OK well maybe mostly for me since I'm new lol..I think it is going to be a wonderful summer this year.

That is awesome! What a fun project and a great space to pursue every one's hobbies and interests. It's always nice to expand your living space, especially with something so special.

I wish all of you a wonderful summer, I look forward to hearing how it's going.

A private place is a good idea but don't you have your own room too?

yes i have my own room!But somehow there is never enough room lol..plus painting takes a lot of space so it will be good not to have to fold the easel up each and everytime I use it. #2 wants a quiet place. It won't be so much private as it will be a place for our hobbies.

Ya know what is REALLY scary? I've actually done some of these things! Of course, I am not going to confess to which ones....needless to say, I can HANDLE the stress; People just can't HANDLE my insane outlets for that stress....

Oh, and I can soooooooo relate with stuff. I have boxes of it in a spare room. No where to put it. But it is MY stuff. It has followed me around for years. I occassionally peak in the boxes, just to make sure my stuff is still there. I will have to build an addition, just so I can let my stuff out of boxes.....
