I can hardly remember anything that has to do with history, the government, politics and the like... but I can remember the price of almost every item I have purchased at the Goodwill. Great gift, right?
I have a pretty bad memory when it comes to the important things. That's why I write them down. I really get a kick out of reading my journals from the past... and especially reading old blog posts. I really love blogging because it has 3 purposes. Journal/memory keeping, scrap booking /pictures, and socializing. It's a genius idea really.
So I've been growing a garden in my craft room for the past several weeks and I've been a tiny bit obsessed with it. I spend so much time in there, I take a lot of pictures too. I decided to make a blog just for my garden so I could write down everything that I learn... so I won't forget. I can just picture myself trying to recall what time of the year I planted peas outside and the only think that pops into my head is the price of the new toy I bought at the GW.
I named the blog Growing A Thumb because I don't know if I have a green thumb or a brown thumb at this point. You are welcome to follow it. http://www.growingathumb.blogspot.com/. And if you want to get real crazy you can steal my button. I'm not a professional blogger (although I wouldn't mind) and I don't have a giveaway or a good reason to persuade you to take my button... the only reason would be that you want to.
