Day 31: Enjoying Simple Things, At Last

Kitchen Sitting Area

My Kitchen Sitting Area


In no particular order, here are my thoughts about re-entering the world of blogging consistently by posting for 31 consecutive days.

Granted, I got off schedule a bit in the final stretch, but by looking at the clock and the date creatively, I made it , and I am posting Day 31 on Day 31- and I have 31 posts to show for it.

* I hope those of you who stopped by to read don’t think I am some kind of stalker- as in ‘Oh my gosh, there she is again!’.

* I did have a theme , a main idea, an over arching idea which is simply this:   Enjoying Simple Things. 

* I learned an important lesson, however, throughout this process.

Enjoying Simple Things is ALL in the eye of the beholder.

*Isn’t that great news?  We can live life according to what suits us (as differently as that may seem to others), and we can call it SIMPLE. 

* And finally- the greatest part of this exercise was connecting with you- both old and new blogging friends.  Thank you for your emails and your encouragement.

May all your SIMPLE dreams come true today!

The corner of your room you show in the photo is very pretty. I like the blue and the white.
Good for you for doing the 31 day posts.

You were smart to do the challenge and I sure did enjoy your posts. I've found that when I post something, even if it's my coffee cup today, I'm happy and feel more creative. Posting leads to more posting.

I simply LOVED it!
I got behind --sidetracked-- what have you...and I did NOT end with 31 days of blogging. However, I did learn quite a bit about myself--writing so often and leaving myself little notes to reflect upon and maybe improve.
I don't want to become stagnate.
I'm glad to see you're back-- and will be here reading --when you're posting!
Great job!
