For Time's Sake (and my sanity)

Too much to do. The litany of modern days.
The craft room is coming along.
The Rural Society Fall Show is fast approaching.
The bedroom is getting an overhaul. The deck needs staining.
The garden must be put to bed.
Haven't even begun to decorate for fall.
Furniture for my Ohio Valley Antique Mall space (127) is waiting for paint.
A bajillion green tomatoes to be canned.

Oh yes, and then I would like to take some time to enjoy the October weather.

Therefore I am embarking on a little blogsperiment.
Posting a photo a day for October.
No words...well...mostly...
31 photos for sanity's sake.

If you feel the need join me.
I give you permission to let something go.
For the sake of your sanity.

Pam, This is a great idea..October looks like it will be a crazy one here too! I'll have to consider this even if only to make a conscience effort to photograph more!

Good luck with the craft room redo and the furniture painting..I hope we see some pictures of them soon!

I like the idea of photos and few words.
I love October. It's my favorite month.
Also my BD month.
Good luck getting it all done......seriously call me.

Sounds like a plan. Hope to be able to make it up to The Rural Society this time!

Hi Pam,
I like your idea! Sometimes I wear myself out just worrying about what I'm going to blog about, it can be stressful.

Good luck on all your upcoming projects.

Pam, Your photos are so pretty! Are you just using the little camera you used up in Tipp? If so, you are a wonderfully talented gal! I want to go to the Rural Society show. Need a helper? LOL Hope you are not stressing! It will be wonderful, I'm sure. Are ya loving this cooler weather? The rain- not so much, (did you see the pics on my blog the day it flooded?) yikes.... Come by and enter my give-away, too! hugs, Sue

What gorgeous photos Pam!
I fully understand this emotion so well. Especially during the past year. With my Mom having been so ill, an active 13 year old and helping to care for my nephew, well, time is a luxury I lack! Some things have to go and sometimes it is blogging sadly but what I hate is not leaving comments even when I do get around to visit.
I know that you will live your life beautifully and well and do what is right for you and those you love! Of that I have no doubt! You are amazing!
Hoping you are enjoying this sweet October weather!
