30 days of thanks...
gratitude today~~ my daily life. for waking up with D. at my side. for the opportunity to homeschool my children. for the girls' successes in college. for the wit & charm of my boys ;) for the sunrise over the bay. for a good cup of coffee, warm on a cold fall morn. for food aplenty in our kitchen. for the hounds snoozing at my feet...

travel...
specifically cyber-travel. as in visiting blogs i love...

is anyone else who is doing the NaBlo feeling the squeeze of less time to visit others?? don't get me wrong...i really, really am enjoying this month's activity, but i am feeling a bit down about my reduced time to visit others.

real travel...excitement is building here for our weekend adventure, especially for Little Man! any guesses as to where we are going?? stay tuned...

Interesting scientific tidbit that I definitely did not know, and yes, I'm feeling the pinch of time on not being able to visit all my usual blogs...especially since I'm trying to work my way around others participating in NaBlo that I haven't met yet. And then there's a little matter of 50,000 words I'm supposed to be writing...and usual work...and puppies...and...hee hee....

Isn't it great????!!!!

Lovely picture. Also - the part about divers made me laugh. So. Hard. I needed that on a Monday morning. Thanks. :)

Yes, I'm totally feeling the squeeze of time, and having a hard time visiting all the blogs I love to visit, while doing NaBloPoMo, and NaNoWriMo, and work, and life, and...yikes. And yet, I've been energized by all this and am looking forward to this crazy month unfolding.

Hi Deb. I have some catching up to do and don't even have NaBlo to fall back on as an excuse for falling so behind on my reading. Wishing you a beautiful week. My committment to myself this week is to stop in everyday and the places that give me so much peace when I'm there. xxoo Annie

I love those lil' tidbits of info. Thanks for sharing.

I know...I'm spending an awful lot of time online visiting the NoBloPomoers.

Yes I feel the squeeze...as in less time to do house chores! ;-)

bri...i'm glad, we all need to start the week with a good laugh :D
