I’ve been on my blogging odyssey for almost three months now. I started blogging every day on November 1, 2011. Today is January 18, 2012. That is 79 posts including tonight’s entry.
It has been an remarkable 79 days. Tonight I’m looking back over the last few weeks to do a “round-up” of favorite blog posts.
One month ago I posted about Jdub’s favorite tune: The Spanish Song That night seems so long ago, but it was just a month. Goes to show how time can stand still or fly depending on where your perspective is.
Thanksgiving and Christmas happened. And the wonderful Christmas Eve program at our church” Light of the World
My pets always provide good fodder for writing: If the Dog/Cat Could Sass
And there were several photo blog posts that were just a result of being in the moment with a camera (or iPhone) handy:
Stock Tank on a Still Day (My Favorite of the photo posts)
And the coolest, random photo that captured an optical illusion:
Do You See What I See? (It was a little more than a month ago)
Much has changed in my life in 79 days.
- I’m about to make a major job transition.
- I’m getting close to losing the 10 lbs I promised myself to lose by my next birthday (not so much because I’m eating better but more because I don’t have time to eat).
- I’m about to conclude the last event I hope to ever do in a professional capacity.
- I’ve been “ordained” at my church.
- I read three 500-page books of fiction; six books of nonfiction.
- I still have a library book out that is past due.
- I’ve worn my pretty boots a lot.
- I repainted/redecorated my home office.
- I rearranged Jdub’s room to make it more spacious for him to play.
- I almost had a panic attack in Ikea because it’s so overwhelming to me, (not really, but it did become time to “just go.”)
- I got a fever blister (from stress, that’s what my body does).
- And my little kid was sick for 5 days straight.
With a blog a day, I’m amazed at how much life actually happens in a relatively short span of time. It also shows that whatever you do, you have to do it a little at a time. When you pause to look back, the chronicle provides the proof that you’ve gone very far, just one day at a time.
