About Margaret H. Velard

New York City real estate broker who knits when not selling property. Soon to hid the middle of my sixth decade, and I'm noticing that, while I've done a lot of living, I've still got a lot more to do.

Out of Sheer Boredom

Summer has always been a “downtime” period in my life, both professionally and personally.  Everything moves at a slower pace, the heat virtually knocks me out.

Since I’m yet again sitting around on a Saturday night, I decided to try yet another blog … interestingly enough, this spurt of creativity pops into my head when there’s nothing but great old movies on TV, the air conditioning is set so that I am cool enough to concentrate, and I’ve read about as much stuff from other people as I can handle for the moment.

Maybe it’s because I’m pretty much set in my ways (have been married to the same man for 34 years), not as wealthy as I would like to be (the kind of wealth that would allow me to do nothing but knit), not as healthy as I used to be, that I’m now going to attempt to make this more of a diary-type of blog rather than a compendium of photographs.

All the exciting things that happened in my life that would be bloggable are filed away in photo albums or in picture frames.

I guess most people my age are now traveling and documenting their travels on line – I probably would have done that as well, because one of the things that I’m getting pretty good at is figuring things out on a computer.  As a matter of fact, it’s something that’s given me a great deal of pleasure lately, as well as a great deal of frustration.  Husband laughs and calls me a nerdette – I call myself a geek wannabe, whatever that might mean!

So, if I can put down my knitting long enough, I’m going to try to keep this one up on a fairly regular (read: daily maybe?) basis.

OK – enough outta me, until next time!
