a NEW Thursday thought


Happy Thursday! This quote is from a recent post at The Cobweborium Emporium.  It’s a simple concept, but one that a lot of people don’t seem to grasp, or at least, don’t put into practice. I like to think of it as the M.O.T.N. Principle  (More Often Than Not). It’s just such a true principle that I had to use it as a Thursday thought.  Thanks Cobs!

Wednesday’s What’s NEW with you? (a tagging experience)


I’ve decided I’ll post a tagging experience every Wednesday, because I’d like to hear more about ‘What’s NEW with YOU’! I get to learn what’s NEW from sites I follow, but I’d like to know something NEW from other people who YOU follow (who I haven’t gotten acquainted with yet). And I figured maybe you would too.

What’s NEW with me?…I just finished reading A Caged Grave which was recommended by Book Club Mom.  Very good YA book! It was particularly interesting to me, because I have hints and clues (can’t prove it yet) that some of my ancestors were in the same geographical area during the Revolutionary War, as where this book is supposed to take place.  I liked it a lot – I figured I would, since Book Club Mom gave it 5 stars! :o)

What about you?  What’s NEW?

If you’d like to participate, here’s what to do (You do not have to be tagged in order to join the fun):

  • Write a post about something NEW you learned, or something you tried, did, experienced etc., and also include something NEW you learned about from another site you follow (be sure to link to the other site as well).
  • Please tag your post with “what’s-NEW”  (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Link (Pingback) your post to this post. That way, I can post all the great NEW stuff going on the following Wednesday for everyone to see.
  • Have fun realizing all the NEW things you do or learn!

a NEW awareness of gratitude – Day 30


Happy November 30th! I am very grateful for the skill of knowing how to use a microwave, the skill of knowing how to each chocolate, and the skill of making my face go bright red when I do something embarrassing!  Acceptable? No?  Well, ok….I’m grateful for the skill of reading music.  How’s that?

Have a great day! Find something NEW to be grateful for!
