On My Ever Changing Life

7 comments
I have been remiss in posting here. I promised you a post on the progress in the entryway. A task that has been ongoing for awhile due to weather and laziness. I am not going to post about that though. Truthfully, my heart is not in it. In fact, I may never post about this house again. You see, we have decided to sell our house.

 A lot of changes have happened in the last month. SO much so that my head is awhirl with thoughts and I am having a hard time sorting them. But onto the facts. My husbands contract is done soon and he is ready to move onto the next big project. This does not include staying anywhere near here so we are selling our house. The next few months will be full of finishing our latest projects and making the house ready to sell. Also many days of sorting items and tossing them or readying them to sell on Ebay or the local classified site. Because, and here is the kicker, we are hoping to migrate back across the sea. It's time for me to come home. A decade in another country was great, I do love it here. But I am ready to play with my grandson, visit with my children and friends and once again view the Pacific. I miss home.

 I am in a quandary about this blog though. I just spent a lot of time and effort to redo my blog. I renamed it. Bought the domain name 'Making on the Mountain' and generally changed my gears toward writing about my life in general instead of my art. Now once again my life has changed. My sis says I need to rename again and this time focus on the fact that my life is always changing. I am always exploring into new art areas, travelling and changing my locale. I have moved 5 times in 9 years of living here in France. I don't tend to stay in one place too long! I also tend to get lost in one area of my life, working non stop to learn a new art or just to make art and everything else falls by the side. The last month or so I have been hyper focused on my jewelry. I am learning all the new techniques I can find and also taking a design class specifically focused on jewelry design. No DIY projects here right now or anything else much.

 I have to take a step back to rethink where I am going from here. I no longer have the heart to write about a house that will no longer be my home. I am not gong away though, I am simply stepping back and regrouping. I still have so much to say...

  1. And you've put so much effort into that house! But you can make a home anywhere. I have also moved many times. It seems that change is the only constant! Embrace it and look forward to going back to America. Hope it all goes smoothly for you!

  2. Sorry you have to go through another move....glad you are coming home to be near your family.

    As far as the blog goes..well..it's been part of your life .. like is certainly an analogy of a mountain!!

    I like continuity. I don't think you need to close this blog or change the name. You have followers who will like to see where you wander and what you do there. That's why we are FOLLOWERS!!

    Hope your blog stays put while you continue to make on the mountain.
    xx, Carol

  3. If you go back to the Pacific, will you be living near a mountain or hill? Then you can keep the name!
    At any rate, I think you should still keep it. You could keep your title on your picture and just put "(and beyond)" after it. Like first line: "Making on the Mountain", second line: "(and beyond)".
    I have a blog that I started about one subject and it ended up being about another subject. But I made the title work with what I had through more words, kind of like what I'm suggesting to you.
    And by the way, wow, that's a lot of moving! I find moving so unsettling and even a little alienating, so I can appreciate those who can do it with ease.

  4. I hope you and Frenchy enjoy every minute of your transition. I am going thru one now that I believe is better for me. I don't care where you end up, Diane. Just as long as you are happy where you are and who you are with. That's all that matters.

  7. Just make sure you land on another mountain. That would solve it! And the Pacific? You might as well be in France. Seems as far! Love ya and hope all goes well getting ready for the big move.
