Starting Fresh

Dear Readers,

This blog started as a knitting blog way back in the day, before the birth of Ravelry.  It morphed into a food-and-gardening blog.  And I've always talked about books, parenting a homeschooled child, religion and disbelief, and anything else that crossed my mind.  For the past two years, I've had mixed feelings about the unfocused approach.  I liked being able to write about whatever I was thinking, but I also knew that there were times when a bit more form might create a better blog.

With that in mind, I am putting this blog aside (at least for the time being) and starting anew.  Please join me at Lifetime Reading Plan.

Recently I've been thinking about all the books I want to read, and all the books that I feel I should have already read. Over at Lifetime Reading Plan, I'll write about books, their contexts, and my reactions--beginning with Gilgamesh and the Ancient Greeks, and heading forward through time, hitting everything from Chaucer to Tolstoy to Proust. I would love to have some reading companions who would like to read some of these books with me!

I'm currently making book lists and checking them twice, although I'm sure the plan will grow and change as time goes by. Although I plan to write up some preliminary information about my project soon, the reading will really get underway on 1/1/11.

In addition, I'll be writing roughly once a week over at Food, Glorious Food. This spot will be primarily a place for me to write out a weekly menu for my family. Occasionally I'll share a home-developed recipe, a picture of our kitchen garden, or a cookbook review. If you're eager to know what we are planning to eat, you're welcome to come on over--but Food, Glorious Food will be primarily an organization device for my family.

I hope to see you all soon. Thanks for all the time here. It has been a wonderful pleasure.

Adding your new blogs to my feed reader. I love reading your thoughts- and as I love reading in general, I can't wait to hear more about your Lifetime Reading Plan!

I'm definitely going to add your new blogs to my reader as well... I understand *far* too well about wanting to make something new. I'm actually in the process of it myself. Here's to new places & moving forward to better things!!

I'll be so pleased to have you with me. Both of you have been a big part of my experience in the blog world from the beginning!

My blog started as a knitting blog, too, but I've always done more reading than knitting so I wasn't surprised that books took over. I'm looking forward to the launch of your new blog!

Being the queen of unfocused blogs myself, I have to say that I will miss the more random/all-in-one-place musings.

But I'm glad you are leaving a trail of breadcrumbs ;-)
I'll be following.
