Bleary eyed, dreary, gray day. Slow dripping rain, sipping tea. Is it naptime yet? The weather is cold and rainy, and here I sit in front of the blank computer screen, contemplating how I am going to start yet another project.
I have a theory that most jobs, particularly ones that involve household chores or acts of service come to me by default. I have the most desire to see it get done; so I often, and sometimes regrettably, tackle the job. For example, I am the computer guru at our house. Now, I know what you’re thinking already. So, stop laughing long enough to let me explain. I can’t stand something to remain unfixed for any length of time. A few years ago, Mike never seemed to have enough time to get to the computer problems. So I started going into the computer’s filey thingies (technical term–please don’t Google it) and occasionally I got lucky. Meanwhile, I learned just enough to get myself into a ton of trouble. When I call our computer guy, he knows it will take him more than a couple of hours to fix what I’ve played with. I do have a point to all of this rambling about my understanding that mostly jobs come my way by default:
You now know a family reunion cookbook editor! Yes, I agreed to put together a cookbook for the family reunion we’re having next month. I told them I would do it if no one else volunteered, though I knew there were many in our clan far more talented than I that could do a much better job. . . blah, blah, blah. Kind of silly in hindsight, I know.
Anyway, I was wondering if you have any scrapbook ideas, or template sites/guides that might be a good resource for me to assemble a cookbook/memory keeper book? Thanks–any and all suggestions are most welcome.
