I Did It!



This makes my thirtieth post during the month of November. I can't quite believe that I did it. I have only posted twice this year. There were times this month where I thought, I just have nothing to say, but I had challenged myself to do this so quitting, for me was not an option, though I thought about it... But each night that I completed a post I felt strangely satisfied...so who knows. I hope to continue...

I was looking through my copy of Stillmeadow Calendar by Gladys Taber. I have quite a few of her books, and I usually like to pick one from the bookshelf at this time of year and reread her descriptions of her life in the country with her friend and her dogs. It occurred to me as I was looking at the writings for the month of November that they are like little 'blog' postings. This book was published in 1967 so how one felt or how one saw their life in relation to everything else had to be written out in long hand in a diary or pad of paper or of course use a typewriter...sometimes others read it but usually not unless it was meant to be published. Now we blog and the world can read what we are writing...almost instantaneously. What would Gladys think?

The photo is what is left of the flower garden...for just a time, it will be back.

Have a good evening. Thanks for reading. Peace.
