I am a Crappy Blogger

I have to face facts.
I am a crappy blogger.
I have a terrible time documenting my life. Every time I hear a talk about the joys of journaling, I guiltily slink down further into my seat. I don't know why I don't document/write/journal. I know that someday my posterity may be slightly interested in what I had to say, because I am completely fascinated by anything my ancestors had to say.

Maybe I am in denial that I am mortal?????

Hmmmmm, a deep question that I don't have time to ponder at this moment.

My problem is that I "feel" I have to have an interesting photo every time I post and it takes a ridiculous amount of effort to download photos to Blogger........

Ahhh, maybe that's the reason I'm a crappy blogger rather than the more ponderous thoughts of being mortal........

So.....sans photo.....I'll tell you what I am up to today.

Basically I don't have a car much these days, since I'm sharing my transportation with the newly returned missionary who is trying to get his life in order.....or return back to the Gentile life.....

So today I decided to cut back the jungle of basil that is growing in my front yard and try out the never-used-before dehydrator and dry me up some fresh herbs to be used in future spagetti sauce.  It is currently humming away in my pantry.

I'm going with Jessica (in her car) to help her register for her baby shower. She is 7 months pregnant!! I can't seem to grasp this idea. We are hosting a baby shower for her in a couple of weeks.

I'm consumed with that fact as well as my Grandma Halloween party next week, the sewing projects waiting for me and the various and sundry duties of being a Relief Society president.

So that's life in a nutshell. I'm going to try to document this life a little better, with the occasional downloaded photo.

So good to hear from you! Picture or not! How is that RM doing? I wish I had the focus to grow my own herbs!
You have so much more on the ball than me and I admire you, Marilyn.
Keep these posts comin' sister! We don't need no stinkin' picture to enjoy hearing from you!

Thank you for your blog. I love to read about your forest of herbs. No pictures needed.

Love hearing what you've been up to.. and no pictures needed.
I too wonder about this 'journaling' stuff. I made a remark about it to my return missionary daughter, and her response to me was, 'we are a record keeping people.'
OK... I got it now :)
Have a wonderful grandma party and best of luck getting that vehicle back :)
