In my efforts to crawl out of that dark pit of depression that I fell into a couple months ago (again), and to take better care of myself and to renew my mind to think on things that are positive, it occurred to me that using the word "frumpy" in the title of my blog might be contributing ever so slightly to my negative self image. After all, to be frumpy is to be dull, plain or unfashionable...colorless, drab, with lack of care of appearance. How can I reverse that image of myself when the word stares me in the face every time I post a blog entry?
Over the past week, I've been mulling over various names, collecting input from family and friends, and came up with something I like:
Flint Hills Hausfrau
The name reflects the beautiful area in which I live, as well as the non-career path I've chosen for my life. Both are very positive things, and I hope the new name inspires beauty and simplicity both to me as a writer and you as a reader.
Welcome to my little farmhouse in the valley! Let's share a cup of coffee, a plate of fresh-from-the-oven cookies and enjoy a happy visit together!
