So November is NaBloPoMo and I am participating. We are four days in and this has definitely been a busy week without the having to write every day aspect. The hardest thing that I have run into is finding something of importance to write about. I can generally sit on the couch and say “I should write about that…” but I generally forget about it and never do it. I think that I need to write the whole thing down as I think about it. I generally jot down the idea but forget the meat of the issue before I get to it. Definitely a goal for this month! The second hardest thing has been to write and post without the internet at home! I think that this has been resolved but you can never be too sure!
I am definitely going to be spending the next month finding my niche and writing about anything that strikes me. There are so many things that are on my off limits list that it definitely narrows down the parts of my life that I talk about. Generally, it’s the 4 hour segment at the end of my day and my weekend time. I try not to talk about work, coworkers, family (when it comes to personal issues), I don’t mention my husband by name and I definitely don’t talk about his job. That leaves projects at home, outings and date nights, accomplishments in my personal life, and recipes we try. Seems like a pretty short list… I think I will have to work on that as I progress through the month.
Thankfully, I should have some great material for this weekend! We plan on cleaning and painting our master bathroom. We have gone with Valspar “Granite Dust”. I am hoping that with the white fixtures and white tile in our bathroom, this color won’t come out too dark.

I also think that due to the snow this week (and the week before) the farmer’s market will be sparse this week. I can’t think of anything we need but I feel like we should go as it is the last one. Luckily, the winter market is already planned and we can start planning our holiday gifts!
What keeps you blogging (or coming back to read a blog?)?
