Updates & Hobbies

Hi Everyone,

I’m sorry it’s been such a long time since I’ve posted a new poem.  We’ve had a lot of adjustments to make with my grandma coming to stay with us and now it looks like she will be moving here permanently!  Today I finally started cleaning out the room that we have planned for her…currently she is staying in our guest room!

I did also want to share that I went through a dark period in my life a few weeks ago and during that time I started to put some thoughts to paper (ok to be honest I wrote it on my phone with an electronic memo app hehe)…the draft of the poem that I came up with is  a lot darker than my other poems so, now that I’m feeling better, I am going to try to work on it more and see what i can do with it before I share it.

In addition to everything else that is going on, I’ve been working on some additional hobbies that I enjoy (other than poetry).  Just this morning I made my first batch of plum jam of the season…the variety I made was one of my favorites and it has plum, banana and strawberries in it…I think my favorite thing though is that it is super sweet and yummy!!  Our plum tree has stopped producing for the season but I still have a refrigerator half full of plums that i need to keep using up before they go bad.  For example, just last weekend, I was baking with plums…that is yet another hobby that I enjoy!

Finally, the hobby that has taken most of my attention lately is cross stitching…I had started a project awhile ago and took a long break…but lately I have been back working on it several times a week!

 

How about you…do you have any hobbies you would like to share?  Please comment on the modica media facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/modicamedia/ with what hobbies you enjoy!

Can’t wait to hear from you!
