There was a time when I wrote in my journal books almost everyday. Then I switched to writing or sharing on my private blog daily. Now that my blog is mostly about quilting, I'm lucky if I blog three or four times a month. I wonder if I can blog everyday like I used to and not always about quilting. I'm really not sure! Can you or do you blog almost everyday?
All of this started in my head after an email conversation with Mary at Needled Mom. We've blogged together for years (I love her blog), but we've both tapered off a lot. We're busy and wonder where the time goes. So, where the heck does it go!
My old private blog is packed with memories! I opened it to a post I made on February 21, 1999. It wasn't much of anything, but it brought back a happy time I'd totally forgotten about.
Up On The Hill
Linda and I climbed out of her car and walked to this point overlooking St. George just
so we could take a picture. We were exhausted from the hike!
When I we first bought a house in Utah, my sister (Linda) and I would go on adventures during the weekends we'd get together. In 1999 we'd taken a hike, which was really not that big of a hike, but we had so much fun. Two old ladies walking up the little mountain took a lot out of us!
Photos make blogging memories so much easier. Here's a few I took over the last couple of days.
The newest Monkey Baby...I could stare at her all day.
The youngest Monkey Boy with powdered sugar on his nose.
He makes me smile all the time!
I bought a Juki in December and just sewed on it for the first time the other day.
I love it, but I also love my Bernina.
That project is for the "Time in a Bottle" blog hop coming next month.
I met Jackie Chan in 2008 or 2009 when he came to the office I worked at. I love his shoes! That's me on his right in a black suit and looking rather slim...those were the days! All of us were dressed in animal prints for some reason. Wish I'd written down the reason for that!
I love his "diary" quote: "My schedule goes: wake up, running, exercise, downstairs, running shoes off, then to the shower. That's the Jackie Chan diary." - Jackie Chan
There's a group of ladies that join LeeAnna at "Not Afraid of Color" and post things they like every Thursday. Some of them are incredibly faithful about posting. I tried to do it, but I failed. It's really fun to read their "likes"!
I can't make a promise to myself or anyone else that I'll blog more, even though I know it's good for the soul to record our memories. But maybe, just maybe I can do better. You all know I'll be here for sure once a month for the blog hops!
