I’m sitting down to write this – just to try to remember how to write a blog post. It’s been that long. There are numerous reasons for my delinquency, but one of the big ones has to be the fact that I’m not happy with the “theme” that I’m using. Several times I’ve tried to find something new that I like, but thus far I’ve been unsuccessful. I think I need to just try a few on for size, so watch for some new looks. Don’t expect much for content until I find something that I love. Promises, promises, promises.
Adding photos is also a bit more tedious since I moved my photo library to an external drive. Unfortunately my computer and my external hard drive aren’t always in the same room – a problem I need to work out.
Well, the good news is that I still remember how to type. That’s got to be worth something, right? Now to test my ability to add photos… of course, the only ones I have at hand on my computer of photos of Kush the cat.
Great – I can’t remember how to add a photo to the heading on this theme. Can’t see/remember where to add categories or tags. I definitely have some work ahead. Stay tuned as I try to get back into the wonderful world of blogging!
This month has been a whirlwind of activity – as usual. I feel like I live my life from one deadline to the next, and I know I’m not alone here. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not complaining. Having nothing to do would be the worst thing that I could possibly imagine, but somehow a compromise between ends of the spectrum sounds like a good idea. I’m not sure I’ll ever get there.
Here’s a glimpse of my month so far. The first shot shows the elves the first time they made coffee with me. They’re very helpful, and they’re not fussy about how their coffee turns out.
Next my daughter, Devon, came for a quick visit. Whatever time I get to spend with my family is a good time. We made a day trip to Lethbridge to visit my parents – and Felix. It was an excellent day.
I was impressed with the Christmas veggie display at the grocery store. It’s great to see people infusing the Christmas spirit into the produce department! My fibre group, Contextural, had their December meeting/pot luck at my house. I stitched together a new tablecloth to celebrate the evening. We have some very talented members and the food was delicious!
Last Saturday was a workday for our Calgary chapter of Days for Girls. It’s always fun working with the enthusiastic volunteers supporting a very worthy cause.
My activity report wouldn’t be complete without a photo of my assistant/companion, Kush. Sometimes she actually lets me work by sleeping next to where I’m working. Not like now – as I type across her body.
Lastly I’m including some pics of my favorite Christmas decorations. I have a number of large glass vases filled with beautiful ornaments, so I’m showing some close up views as well. In case I don’t get back to my blog before the 25, I’d like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!
I’ve been accused of posting too many photos of my cat on Instagram. It’s tough not to – she’s that cute! So for this week’s challenge I’ve focused on Kush the cat photos that exemplify serenity. This should calm my cat posting urge for a few days at least.
This is my response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Serenity.”
