Joe's New Blog

Nothing special, this is just my third effort at writing a blog about my life and what goes on in it: Hobbies, cooking, work, maybe the occasional book or DVD review, and so forth. Nothing really noteworthy, but this is sort of a little subset of my world...

New Project 365, Day 1

Happy Birthday To Me!

So, after all of that buildup, what did I do today?  Not very much, really.  I did try to do some recording on a couple of the traditional tunes I've been playing around with, "Simple Gifts" and "Bonaparte Crossing the Rockies."  But I don't think I really made enough headway on either of them to really be worth posting up to my SoundCloud account.

And, with it being my birthday, I went out to dinner this evening, so now I'm feeling rather full and lethargic.

Oh, and I did at least make some progress on my project to scan all of my papers and such and get them onto the computer instead of in piles around the room.  So there's a little progress toward my organizational goals.  But tomorrow is a new day, and hopefully things will go better.

New 365 Days Project, Day Zero

So, it seems like nearly every year, I decide that I'm going to try to do some kind of project, and I seem to inevitably fail at them.  Going to take a photograph every day and post it, going to record a new piece of music every week and post it, going to bake something every weekend, etc.  So this year, since tomorrow is my birthday, I have decided that I'm going to sort of combine all of those odd things that I do, and I'm just going to try to do something creative every day and post a little blurb on here about it.  That might indeed be taking a photo, baking, playing music, finishing a cross stitch pattern or project, doing some of the woodworking I've been interested in for a while, maybe doing some of the other art work that I've been wanting to try.  But every day, I want to do something that just makes me feel a little better and moves my life forward in the right direction.  My tomorrow starts now, so let's do this...
