This is a blog, yes, it's only a blog...reverb 25

So, we are winding down the daily blogging.  I have found this to be an educational experience, but I have also come to the decision that daily is a bit much.  Let's face it, I have to come up with things, and on days like this, where the most exciting thing I did was laundry, things are a bit harder to get wound up writing about...

I have been looking on line a lot lately, it's been really weird on TV, can't get most of the channels.  One or two programs I want to see don't seem to be online, but I think I will live.  Very annoying, but I will live.  The strange thing, I don't know why, but I am watching TV less and have been reading a lot.  This isn't good or bad, just an observation.  Husband has been doing much the same.  (And since I have finally, but finally managed to get his subscription to a magazine he wanted, he will have more to read!) 

So, I think I will call this my blog, and see what's on the... (inter)Tube.

Prompt: Photo - a present to yourself. Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you.

This is okay, except for one detail.  Husband and I agreed, I don't put photos of me online. 

I will put this one up, instead.

Let's see, the image, my plants that I had just taken out of the green house and planted, taken by me, on my porch.

And what it reveals about me.  Obviously, that I grow tomatoes, and will use dang near any container when I need to plant something.  But I suspect that's not what the question was going for. 

I suppose it looks like my ideas of myself.  I am not finished "growing".  Learning, acting, DOing, getting new ideas.  And look at the amount of plants.  I don't do one thing.  Just off the top of my head, knitting, my writing, caring for my animals, gardening, walking, getting back to the guitar, (and still looking for the darn video... grrr...), blogging, drawing, volunteering.  And that is most certainly NOT an exhaustive list. 

And the greens.  Living, growing, trying to improve myself, become more than I am.  (And I recycle a lot, if you want to go that route.) 

And the kennel.  My animals are always about, somewhere! :)

I am sure I could think of several more words, (I don't think it's a thousand, yet...), but this at least gives you an idea of my thoughts on it.

  1. What IS blogging really? I read all my follower blogs, sometimes it takes me a while, but anyway, it seems there is no "set" blog. A lot are like mine, just gabbing, some are about their chickens and other livestock, some is poetry, some crafts, some sewing, some informational - they are all interesting. Blogs don't have to have any certain quality - so....... tell us about your laundry, surprise us!

  6. You've done a lot of hard work during this challenge, and it's been very interesting reading. But, it really is a stretch to find something to write about every day, isn't it?

    Soon, though, spring will be coming to your area and you'll have plenty of new stuff to see and write about.

  7. Blogging daily, when nothing in particular is happening, can lead to some weird topics. It's okay, sometimes that also leads to interesting discussions.

    Good for you on the not posting pics of you -- i don't, either. There isn't enough privacy these days. That pic represents you quite well.

  8. I am sniffing around for a great tomato salad or sauce recipe. HUMMMMMS, Are there blogging rule or just personal expectations?

    Have a great day,
    Mal
