The header is a very peaceful Morgan sleeping on the computer desk. She is rarely this still. Wish I could get into that kind of zone.
Recovered – Mollie thanks all of you for your caring comments on her recent illness. However, Kate is still doing laundry!
Game night Woo Hoo! – We had our sort of annual family holiday get together last Sunday. Most of the relatives were there. We had fun playing some new games. The most amazing comment came from my 85-year-old sister-in-law who came in second place in one of the tougher games. She was beaten out by someone in her 30s. She outpaced all the rest of us ranging in age from late 30s to 60s. Instead of basking in the glory, she thought she could have done better. Enough!
Constant change – I complain about WordPress changing things without notice. It continues but it’s not only WordPress. Keeping up with technology in our new TiVo and new computer are also challenging my brain cells. I know I can’t stand still because I will be left too far behind but it would be nice to have a week where I didn’t have to figure out a new way of doing something.
Lucky us – After the really brutal winter we had last year, we have been very lucky this year. Yes, there have been some cold days but we have had a few warm (50 degree temperatures) sprinkled in and the snow has been almost non-existent. Bring on those seed catalogs! Break out the spring clothes sales!
A change – Last year I challenged myself to post four times a week. I learned how to write much faster; recognize stories in the everyday life; and not to agonize before publishing. That was all helpful. This year I want to do some other writing projects (and a lot more reading). I am cutting my posting schedule slightly. The goal is to allow other projects to get completed and have the blog stories get a little more polish (without agonizing of course!). You can always catch me cleaning out the litter boxes!
