My Current Thoughts



Caution, this may be disturbing to some, I apologize grandma and Lani! Lately I have been feeling like I should be exploring my creativity a little more. For some reason I have been feeling a whole lot more creative since blogging more. I have given up scrapbooking, sewing (didn't really start it at all), journal writing, etc. all for the love of blogging and photography. But I am feeling like I want to take it further, branch out and do a few blogs so I am going to have to learn a whole lot!
So...I have started a few blogs, many of you already visit our growingupgulbranson blog. It is a "blogimony" of our experiences as children growing up in our household of 9 kids, various pets and animals, stay-at-home mom who we undoubtedly drove crazy, logging father, farming family and daily antics committed by all. We had a great childhood and I am excited to get this going a little more, if only my lazy @%#@& brothers would leave a comment or post once in awhile, love you guys, but don't push me to torture as we did as children!
In another effort to explore some creativity and serve my ever increasing need for affirmation and popularity I have started a wedding blog, warning it is in the VERY early stages. But I am pretty excited about it. So if you see something fun at a wedding, get a shot of it and email it to me and I will post it on the site, now to figure out how to get a bunch of traffic there...
Another thing I would like to do...I frequent this blog that makes me laugh and gives me some great recipes, everything I have tried has been GREAT so far! She has some great photo tips, etc. She also wrote a "book" online and it is titled "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels", she grew up in the city and now lives on a ranch in the plains. Well, I got thinking, I'm not too much different, I love cooking, photography, blogging, etc... But there is one great difference, I grew up on a farm/ranch and moved to the city, she was opposite. So I was thinking, maybe I should write about my childhood on the farm and my subsequent move to the city, I thought of maybe calling it Sh%&#@ Kickers to City Slickers. Let me know your thoughts on that one. Only I am afraid most people wouldn't be interested in a book with that title! I'll have to ponder on it for awhile longer...
I am apparently in quite a mood today, so I apologize for the potty talk, but that's what you get from a farm girl.

What about "City Slickers in Sh@# Kickers"? Funny stuff Kara. You need to come back to the farm and brand or castrate some cows. Maybe that will satisfy your "creative" needs. :)

this is for Grandma, if you read the comments. I actually learned that potty talk from my mother, and I can only assume that she learned it from...well I don't know where she learned it. You raised her properly and she let you down somewhere along the line. I apologize for her lewdness.
