hello and wecome to my new blog.

This is my second blog since starting 'Carried Away, about 2 and half years ago. I started 'Carried Away' as a way to showcase my designs and for chatting about my house or various critters etc. I had always wanted to have a blog solely for the purpose of a journal and talk about whatever. I have no idea if 'Talk is Cheeep' will have the longeity of 'Carried Away', that remains to be seen. I think it will be interesting to see what transpires here.

Still trying to recuperate from the holidays. OY! I wonder how I managed to survive yet another Christmas! I guess I have a like-dislike view of the whole Christmas holiday. I look forward to it, then feel anxious and rushed, followed by completely stressed out, and finally the big relief...I'm sure many feel the same way. I do love the feeling I get when the big day is just around the corner, and you feel all warm and fuzzy inside and smile at people you would normally ignore. It's that 'Good Grinch' or 'Good Scrooge' kind of feel good, like helping those around you and spreading the love. Well, the holiday is officially over now, and I'm ready for things to go back to normal and boring, thank you very much!

I'm spending the last day before the beginning of the week, just hanging out around the house, drinking tea and eating the last of the Christmas cookies, and lounging in my new flannel leisure pants and deluxe Softmoc slippers (akin to walking in two tiny clouds). I'm going to be a bum for the rest of the day. No cleaning, no organizing, no talking on the phone or emailing. It's just about me today. I'm going to visit blogs I haven't seen for awhile and maybe challenge S to a scrabble game later.

Stay tuned for my next post in a few days. I'm going to reveal some fascinating facts to improve your life and health.

ciao for now,
