Coming soon

February 20, 2012 | My Jottings

I have a few unfinished blog posts saved that I would like to start working on, and maybe this will be the week for that. But since there are already ten appointments on the calendar for this week, maybe these drafts will go unfinished for a while longer. I just never know around here.

Here are their prospective titles:

Forenoon Repast with the Droops
The Bank of God
The Clown Birthday Party
Humiliation on the William A. Irvin
Half as hard and twice as good
Ugly Brown Shoes
When Crumbs are a Feast
Isn’t Selfishness Fun?
Angel Unaware

Once Upon a Toile….

In the meantime, here are this week’s seven items that have now left the building:

Most of these books I enjoyed very much; some I already have another copy. One book I was surprisingly ambivalent about considering how loved it is by one of my very reliable recommenders. And one book was so awful that I couldn’t wait for it to be over. Seven things less in this house, as part of my effort to give away 365 things in 2012….it feels good.

Do you have a blog? Even if your blog is already listed in my sidebar, would you leave a comment today with your blog link in it, or even a link to one of your favorite posts, so we can all enjoy it today?

Thank you so much for reading, and God bless your week….

    Come on Julie, spill the beans! Which was the dreadful one?

  2. Jessica says:

    Yes! Inquiring minds want to know! I’m curious about the “ambivalent one” too!

    And here is a link to my blog

    And one of these days I’ll take a picture of the HEAPING piles of stuff that I have all set for a large rummage sale this summer. It’s feeling very good to prepare to purge. It’s not something I’m naturally good at (I get emotionally attached to stuff…it’s ridiculous I know) so when I get in the mood to get rid of stuff I try to make the most of it. And so far I haven’t really retrieved anything that I’ve piled up which is pretty remarkable for me.

    I’m proud of you Jessica! Can’t wait to see your photo. 🙂 And I think the photo of your mom on your blog is stunning! (I’m too old to use your word…) 😀

    Julie ~still catching up. Congratulations on the new little one & I owe you an email ~ unless, like Seeking, you’d prefer to arrange a Skype session. Muchos ???

  6. Just Julie says:

    You’ve been running around everywhere, Ganeida! Your children are blessed to have you for a mama. Yes, I would love a catch up too….thinking about you daily. xxoo
