Coffee Talk: Week 12

It’sThursday people!!  The day before FRIDAY,oh glorious FRIDAY, and that means it’s COFFEE TALK TIME with NAT at OhEmGee! Isaw this coffee mug at my parents over Thanksgiving and knew instantly that itwas going on my blog, especially after such a rough week. The first full weekafter a short holiday week is always soo hard, so it was a "no-brainer" that thiscoffee mug spoke to me.
What is the meaning behind your blog name?

According to The

tinkerer - an unskilled person who tries to fix or mend
unskilled person - a person who lacks technical training
tinkerer - a person who enjoys fixing and experimenting with machines and their parts
experimenter - a person who enjoys testing innovative ideas; "she was an experimenter in new forms of poetry"
Tinkerer…I tinker in a lot of things all the time…not somuch machines, but I do play around with vacuum, dishwasher, dryer, lawn mower,and any little machine that may happen to . I dabble in photography, running, sewing, crafting, while I am seriousabout dancing, blogging, reading, cleaning, gardening…I rarely watch T.V.,despise sitting still and will try anything at least once…  Oh and I work full time, am a wife and step momand keep in pretty darn good communication with my friends and extended family.  Basically, I never stop and when I slow down,I am still tinkering with or planning something.  My mind is always on the move.  I think it’s a pretty neat place.
How long have you been blogging? What made you start?

I started blogging in January of 2010 because I wasliving on the west coast and I had a strong desire to have my family andfriends feel connected to me, but I didn’t have time to call and email picturesto everyone.   Here is my first blog it and you will see that I NEVER stop and am a complete overachiever.  (Ignore the misspelling of "the" - I do in fact know how to spell that simple three letter word.)
What is your blog generally about?

Life.  My blogchanges as my life changes.  I writeabout what I think and do.
Do you have any funny blogs you would like to share?

Nope.  I haveblogs I love, but not ones that are particularly funny.  Sorry :/
What are your hopes for your blog?

My hopes are that those who read it, enjoy it.  I blog for myself and those who areinterested in my life.  I don’t blog formoney, although it has crossed my mind. I enjoy being able to take time off from blogging without feelingguilty. 

Much love.
