I am far too deliberate about how I organize my life.  This includes my blog.  I just spent the last five minutes catching up on the musings of my lovely and artful friend, Jess, and this is the conclusion I have come to: less is more.  Her updates are constantly fresh and spontaneous.  I obsess about the chronology of my blog.  And I can spend forever ruminating on a single sentence.  Like this one.  I actually looked up 'ruminating' to make sure I was using it correctly in said sentence.  All of this uppity, bloggity lolly-gagging is useless, and it keeps my friends out of the loop for much too long.

So I say screw it.  No more getting bogged down in the daily details.  Highlights are enough.  And probably much more fun to read. :)

Ready for the last month in a nutshell? ;) GO!


  1. Mollie - enjoying this.
    Understanding the ruminating.
    Jeff gets frustrated because he "ruminates" also - then nobody comments so he doesn't know they've read.
    So - here it is - I've read it - I enjoy it - keep it up! Tammy

  2. I don't care about the order of things, I do care that the presentation is as before. I love the descriptive nature of your writings. When you write, I can smell things, taste what you've cooked (didn't like the purple thing, sorry) and feel the rain on my face in a sticky humid enviroment. Please don't stop that, it will also ruin my plans to copy all the blogs,have them published in a book and live off the proceeds for the rest of my life! Your loving Aunt Ginny
