Conclusion

I have come to the conclusion that blogging daily requires more time and commitment than I have. It seemed relatively easy in the winter at the end of the day to sit down and write. It is entirely a different story in the spring and summer when the days are long and the outside calls me. I have the capability of blogging outside on my back steps but it’s the time element that is shutting me down right now. The evenings are full of yard work, berry picking and garden time. When I finally walk in the door at 2215 (10:15 pm) and still have supper dishes to do and berries to clean and process it just isn’t happening. 

As it turns out I had a bout of insomnia last evening and thought about blogging then but knew that was a bad idea. Instead I enjoyed the moon, stars and the clear visibility to see town lights. After 10 days of haze it was felt good to have some night time sightings. 

I am actually writing this while on my morning break at work, sitting outside and enjoying some sunshine. Problem is I don’t have enough time to really articulate and write in 12 minutes plus snack and hydrate myself. 

So I have come to the conclusion that I will post as much as I can but it won’t come any where near daily. I had hoped to do a project update Monday evening and actually took photos with the good camera in anticipation but alas the weeds and the berries called me. I know that when my friend posted her haikus daily I always wondered if things were ok when she missed a day so I’m just kind of AWOL with just cause.

    I know what you mean. I honestly thought I would write a lot more, but lately there is just to much else on my plate. I just don’t have as much to write about either I guess…
    I still enjoy reading others writings when I have time and I always like your Haikus!

      I always have topics in my mind and, of course, project updates but it’s the time element for me. I noticed you hadn’t written much lately but I think it’s the summer thing. It’s short, there are fun and outside things to do and it just means less time in front of a screen which is good.
      I’m so glad you like my haikus!! I think they are probably, for most people who read the blog, their least favorite aspect.

    It was an admirable goal, Bernie, but if the pressure to write every day takes away from the pleasure of doing it, then what’s the point, I think. Enjoy the sunny days as much as you can. All too soon, they will be no more.
