It is the final day of the winter challenge and of our LTGL challenge for blogging. As I mentioned at the beginning of the week, I am not a blogger but it's fun every now and again to do a week of blogging. I've had the opportunity this we... Read more

This is Roxy, the cat. Not my cat - but don't tell her that! As I type she's stretched out on the arm of the couch beside me but she'd MUCH rather... Read more

If you participate in any of the chat threads for the teams that I'm involved with, you'll have seen me refer to the Drifters. You might be wondering just what that is (I know some of you certainly know what I'm talking about). The Drifter... Read more

Tuesday afternoons I usually walk to a knitting group that meets in a lounge area of our public library downtown. I discovered this group quite by accident five years ago this month when I went to the library to sign out a book or two - a rare ... Read more

This afternoon I attended my monthly book club which is held at the church I attend. Since our usual leader is away enjoying a much needed rest (she's a very busy lady) I was tasked with the job of leading the meeting - something I've done befo... Read more

I must preface this with admitting that I am a procrastinator about many things. I was the university student pulling all nighters typing us essays just hours before they were due! A couple of weeks ago I FINALLY went through the hundreds o... Read more

It's the last week of the Winter 5% Challenge and this week we're asked to do a daily blog as part of our LTGL (Living the Good Life) which of course adds points to our team totals. I am NOT a blogger - my last blog (I just checked the date... Read more

I can't remember the last time I wrote a blog. Probably the last time that it was one of the challenges during the 5% challenge. I like to post comments on our team chats but I'm not sure that most people are too interested in my day-to-day do... Read more

I did post this on a couple of team forums but I think I'll also include it as a blog. I consider today to be my ... Read more

There are only a few hours remaining in 2016 so I thought I'd better get busy jotting down some thoughts that I've been tossing around in my head for the past while. A year ago I felt like a blimp and knew that I had to do something to get ... Read more

Believe me I thought I'd have this blog done much earlier today but you know, stuff happens, including having a cat between me and my computer having her "after dinner" nap earlier and getting some decluttering done. Anyway I thought I had ... Read more
What to write about?
Thursday, November 17, 2016      7 comments

It has been an usually busy day for me, so I've had no time to really even think about a blog topic (I've worn out the 5% Challenge as a topic), let alone actually begin to type something. So what to talk about - maybe just my unusually busy da... Read more

This will likely be my last blog specifically about the 5% Challenge. I'll have to try to find something else to natter on about for the last couple of days of the challenge week! If you are a 5% challenge participant then my blog title n... Read more
My 5% Challenge Team
Tuesday, November 15, 2016      6 comments

In joining the spring 5% challenge I noticed that there was a "Choose Your Team" thread so I checked out most of the teams that I thought I'd enjoy. However as a new participant to the challenge I wasn't sure where to jump in so thought I'd bes... Read more
