Monday Morning

Monday Morning

The beginning of a new week–the beginning of–well, new beginnings. I think I’d like to start this year over. First, I’ve made a decision about my blog buddy posts. A blog is kind of like a big party. You go and meet new people, sometimes it’s an instant attraction and you become life long friends or just friendly acquaintances. Whichever, it’s a satisfying experience for you both. That was my purpose in starting the blog buddy thing. I still like the idea. The problem is I was going to leave myself out of the party. That’s something no good hostess would ever do so I’m reducing the blog buddy posts to every Friday when possible. I hope this will help introduce you to some wonderful new bloggers, as well as show my appreciation for all the hard work you put into your blogs and for the support you’ve given me. My personal, random posting will continue as before. In light of that, I’m posting some sunrise shots I snapped this morning and some shots from Christmas that I’d posted on Facebook, but hadn’t shared here. Eric made an old west gingerbread saloon and a fresh pine wreath for the fence. Click the photos for larger images.

  1. Elizabeth,
    I like your idea about posting your Blog Buddies on Fridays. It will allow you to maintain your own presence (very important!) and not be so overwhelming for you. Looking forward to reading your posts this year.

    • Hello, friend. Eric is quite talented in the art arena. I was a little disappointed when he didn’t pursue a career in art, David, but it’s not my decision and I can’t argue with him wanting to help the environment. 🙂 ((HUGS)) ❤

    • Lovely Lucie, so good to see you. 🙂 I had started the new year by posting a daily post highlighting the blogs I enjoy and it was supposed to run for the entire year. I received emails from both bloggers and my non blogging followers requesting I limit the blog highlights because they missed me. So I’ve decided to only do the blog buddy highlights on Fridays. Hope that helps. 😀 You can check my recent posts widget to read the first 5 blog buddy posts.
