I was cleaning my post closet so to speak and found that I hadn't published this when it was written almost a year ago! Maybe I will find more?





I wrote this three weeks ago but didn't post it because I had much more to say and not enough time to say it at that moment. Now I have no idea what else I was going to say except thanks for all the thought and care that went into the following:

On my birthday a package arrived. I carefully removed the outer wrapping to find a gift beautifully wrapped in silvery pale green paper with a wide lavender and green satin ribbon embracing it. I almost didn't want to open it. But, I did very carefully. Inside I discovered the green juice glasses that I had admired at William Sonoma. I may have said something like "I would kill to have those glasses but I won't pay THAT price," when I last visited William Sonoma with the gift giver.

Does anyone else write blogs and not post them?

  2. Over the past year I've written about 40 posts that never made it to publishing. Stuff I really needed to write but didn't have the guts to post. I've saved them all in draft and read through them every once and a while to see if I am ready to post them yet and every once and a while one makes it to the light of day.

    But yes - posting is overrated. Writing is not!

  3. I've done that before, held onto a post. After a while I reread them and realize they're not worth posting.

    What a lovely story about a beautifully wrapped gift.
