I missed a day. I really wanted to post yesterday, but try as I might, it wasn't working. Yesterday's prompt (if you have read back you will know that I am doing a class with Shimelle called 'Blogging for Scrapbookers') really bugged me. It shouldn't have, as it was an easy topic really, but the more I thought about it, the harder it was to come up with something to write. I could have taken the easy option and just posted something else, but I decided to sleep on it.
And what was this most difficult of topics? Blogging about goals ... I told you it wasn't scary, but I was stumped. I have always been a goal setter (or so I thought). I set goals in education. I set goals at work. I set goals for vacations. And I set goals ... well, no where else really ... I have set personal goals but I can't recall ever keeping them, or making myself accountable for them! And that was kind of the point of today's prompt. If we set a goal in a public forum like a blog, we can drop back in every now and again and update our readers about our progress. Intriguing idea, but what goal should I set? If I even decide to take up this challenge?
So I woke up this morning and was blog hopping. Last week I wanted to make Swedish Meatballs and The Princess and I found this site with a great recipe. Today they featured a recipe for Zucchini Cake and it was the writers Grandmother's recipe. I loved how at the end they included a picture of the original recipe in her Grandmother's hand. It made me think of my Grandma's recipies. I then ended up at this blog post and suddenly inspiration hit! My cousin is getting married in 6 months and I want to make her a Family Recipe album!!!
We come from a slightly unconventional family and we are spread around the world. What a better surprise for her than if I get everyone involved and fill an album with the recipies and stories. I am excited just thinking about it! So, I now have another project, but this one MUST be competed in 6 months and it gives me something else to play with other than holiday photos :-)
So stay posted and I will update you as I go! I am off to start emailing family and begin my collection.
