Back At It

I found this post when I finally sat down to think about blogging again today.  I thought I'd just go ahead and post it, although I think it's a month or two old...yikes!

Now that my allergies have subsided for the year, I can get back to hanging my laundry again.  I truly love to hang laundry.  It's one of those things that makes me smile inside and gives me time to think.  Life has sort of given me a one-two-punch lately and so I've had plenty to think about.
As I was hanging laundry, it occurred to me that one reason I feel so unsettled about this blog is that I'm trying too hard.  I have all these ideas and projects I want to share, but I don't have time to do them, take pictures, write posts and still handle the day to day needs of my family.  While I come up with some pretty nifty ideas for things from time to time, most of my ideas are pretty darn average.  Trying to organize my blog and stick to a certain subject on certain days or making sure I have a certain number of posts a week is taking away from the things I need to do here.  

I don't want to quit the blog though, because I've gotten some really sweet emails from people who are finding encouragement from my blog and that makes me happy. 

For now, then, I will just blog what is on my mind or what I am actually doing at the time and hopefully it will be a blessing to someone out there. 


  1. I love hanging out the laundry as well. So glad you are going to quit blogging, but find a balance that works for you! :)

  2. Hanging clothes up is so ZEN, isn't it?

    Write when you can, it's all about finding your bliss!

    1. Very ZEN! My favorite is after it's all hung and I crank it up, the wind catches the clothes and they slowly spin. I love it :)
