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!


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 eat 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!

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


I’m SO happy that The Travel Lady In Her Shoes joined in the WHAT’S NEW tagging experience! If you haven’t checked out her site, please do! Fabulous site!  She introduced us to Georgie Moon’s site Third Time Lucky.  I have to say, this is EXACTLY why I wanted to do this tagging “experience”!!! What’s better than getting introduced to a NEW site that I can follow, about a gal living on a yacht in Greece and apparently loves photography as much as I do?!?  Nothing is better!  Thank you Travel Lady In Her Shoes! (We all hope you feel better soon!)

Here’s my WHAT’S NEW tag:  Laurie, at Pride in Photographs has started something NEW.  She’s started/added a YouTube channel to her busy life.  Check out her site – I enjoy following her creative photography!

Alright (everyone else! :o)…What’s NEW with YOU? Please know, you don’t have to be personally invited to join in!  Anyone can play – the more introductions, the better. Have a great day!


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.

So, If you’d like to participate, here’s what to do:

  • 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!
