It’s been a year (?!) and I still feel a bit blogblocked. Stuck in a rut so to speak. I really want to get back into blogging and sharing ideas and random blurbs.

But I didn’t know where to begin. I *did* know that I wanted to break away from the 101 list. It wasn’t relevant anymore; I had lots of different lists going on. I didn’t want to feel this committed to something that, if I’m really honest with myself, was written in less than two days. A to-do-list that spans the better part of 2.7years needs some better planning. So as of now it is obsolete.

I invite you to the work-in-progress New Tracy’s Topics. May this be the start of something beautiful.

I tried, I did I did; but I failed.  Of course I have excuses; valid ones at that. I had to prepare for our very first six monthly review last – which I presented this week. I went really well and I got a complement from one of the pathologists.
An of course we are moving into our new house on Monday. Some packing had to be done. I’m typing this from my as-yet-not-packed PC cause it is an essential; right up there on the last-weekend-in-old-house-list with 4 plates, 4 cups, 4 sporks and a list of takeout numbers. No ways am I cooking as well as packing.

On Sunday I took Lili with to church for a second cousin’s Christening. Felt like I was repeating myself the whole time with ‘Sit Still’ and ‘shhhh’.
So today I’m sitting next to the braai of our new house waiting for the builder to show up – there are a few things we need to discuss.
I lean forward to check how many lightbulbs I need to get for my chanelier. As I lean back, Lili leans forward. So I lean forward again, and she leans back. I lean back, she leans forward. We’re playing vertical sew-saw. THAT’s when she says to me :”Mamma, sit stil!”

Tracy: “…and I really want a Twista Choppa Pro, but not for Christmas. It can chop and whip – it has 2 attachments”

Henk: “But you have one.”

Tracy: “No, I have a Braun multi mix”

Henk: “Ja, so why do you want a Twista Choppa Pro?

Tracy: “For the same reason I want garden solar lights,  and haven’t complained about juicing lemons by hand – it doesn’t use electricity!”

I posted this at Tracy’s Homemade today.

I saw this tutorial in a beading magazine; they used gogga-ma beads and Pandora beads. I simply fell in love with these sugar spoons! I haven’t seen anything like it in shops or at markets, and I knew ICTMT (I Can Totally Make That).

Here are some pics, including ones that didn’t make it into the post.
