Just some old bandwagons. Like Ravelry. I jumped that one right off. But Harry Potter? Didn’t read those until after the fifth book was out.
So now I am watching Pinterest. With interest. And fascination. And feeling a little old, to the amusement (I am sure) of my offspring.
Pinterest is an on-line place to ‘pin’ stuff I like, be it cool photography ideas, gardening ideas, homemaking hints, organizational ideas, crafty things…well, those are sort of pins that I sort of focus on. And humor…I like the humor, mostly…
There are those who like fashion and style ideas, and inspirational thoughts, and travel photos, and pictures of cutey-pie animals…etc, etc, etc…
I am amused by those who pin luscious photos of foods….and inspirational quotes about getting of the couch to exercise….or style photos with skinny (sz 2) jeans…because no one ever ate a pan of those buttery rolls and fit in those puppies, lookin’ like that model!
And then…the photos of the hair styles…with no how-tos. Too bad, because I am thinking my grey hair needs to be all done up in those fairy tale braids!
The recipes are interesting. Everything old is new again. I have seen my Make-A-Mix taco seasoning (more or less) straight out of recipe book I received as a hostess gift for a Tupperware party more than 30 years ago lauded as ‘Awesome!’ and ‘So easy!’. Ha! I am all ‘LESS SALT!’ and ‘Cheap!’ And also? Straight out of the Perry Family Cook Book, my sister’s chocolate sheet cake. Of course, these are accompanied by dynamic photography using excellent lighting. Much more…dramatic!
Now I am thinking when I run short of blog posts, I am going to talk about how I do…I don’t know…anything…or make Mom’s Orange Salad Recipe…because I know I have to be doing something around my house without thinking about it or using some recipe that someone is pinning on Pinterest, and thinking that it is the best thing since sliced bread!
That’s the thing with being old…I just do stuff.
I have had some fun snooping around, and I have some fun ideas collected to try next spring in the yard, and some photography hints and helps pinned as well. It hasn’t proven to be a huge time suck for me, but I am fairly disciplined and industrious. I almost always see something, though, that opens my eyes to the wide disparity of my world.
I would like to see an option to ‘view without comments’, but no one has asked me. Really would save a lot of screen room for the meat…
