Aloha. Welcome to my new, little blog: Stefanie Crafts with Wool Paper Fabric. I can’t help it when I feel a change needs to be done to reflect my current self. I like to start fresh with a clean slate, like the feel of a brand new notebook for school. It’s who I am and how I roll. If you followed me over here from the old blog, mahalo nui loa for your unwavering support and loyalty. I thoroughly enjoy having your company and having you kick it with me. If you’re hearing my voice for the first time, mahalo for checking me out in my little niche. I hope you stay and hang out. This space is slowly being set up. I’m still trying to decide upon a WP theme, ideas for a blog header are percolating about in my brain, I have to explore widgets, and I will have to create my About Me page as well. So bear with me, pls. I appreciate your patience and understanding.
So, this was me and my ohana Sunday. What about you? The four of us drove up to my parents’ house to watch the game. We immediately consumed half a salmon ball with Ritz crackers and celery. My mum had us slow down so there’d be some for my brother and his crew. They came down from Tahoe just before evening hit, having got caught in the Davis traffic. Then the cocktail shrimp was set out and gone in less than 20 minutes.
Of course the men were more into the game as my mum, my SIL, and I heard them loudly express themselves time to time. I paid more attention to the game from halftime til the end. This was us when the fumble happened. Can you tell who we were rootin’ for?
The kids ate first and then we, adults, did after the we knew for sure the Eagles had won. There was oinkin’ out on instant pot jook, Portuguese soup, convection-roasted turkey sandwiches, frosted chocolate cupcakes with sprinkles, Safeway apple pie, vanilla ice cream, and homemade lemon bars. Our ohana didn’t leave until 9 pm. We got home in an hour in safe traffic. So today we’ve been all a bit sleepy and sluggish this school day.
I was going to dive into the books that have been filling up my Goodreads Challenge but you know what? I’m going to take a breath, I’m going to let that anal perfectionist tendency go, and I’m just going to work on the book post tomorrow. No more rushing to crank it out. One of my goals for blogging this 2018 is to put more thought into my writing. I want to feel more like a writer as I’ve always wanted to be one. This blog is my platform, my voice to feed that desire.
It’s getting late here. I need to go to bed earlier tonight as I am pooped. Mahalo plenty for being here with me in this space and for listening. TTYS. Aloha.
