So for the past few weeks I've been thinking I really want to get back to blogging, but in a more organized way... so I was to pick a few "themes" for a few days of the week and keep up with them.

I know I'm going to to "Caturday" of course... but I'm not sure what else. I'd love to participate in one of the ones that lots of people do and they all share the links to, but I can't seem to find much out there. I know there's illustration Fridays but I get the feeling I wouldn't get to it often (Lorelei doesn't let me draw much)

Maybe I could do "Treasure Thursdays" where I point out some art or craft I really like... or Made it mondays where I outline a project I've done recently. Hmm.... Who knows. Just know that Change is Coming!

Just today I saw that a girl who asked me to teach her how to shoot in manual has started her own photography business. The pictures are nice but it started me wondering why haven't I taken that plunge.

The only reasons I can come up with are, lack of confidence, lack of someone to watch the baby while I do sessions, and ... really that's about it.

I guess I have some soul searching to do, because every time I see that another person I have spoken to about photography has started a business in it and done well, I get a bit jealous, and that's not a good way to be.

There's now a big boat in my back yard, and it will probably be there for a few years.

Restoration is going to be... fun.
I will probably start a dedicated blog following that progress. Don't quote me on that though.
