a 31 Day Challenge ... it works for me!

One of the most positive benefits of blogging
 is the sense of community amongst bloggers.

 It feels like a chatting-over-the-backyard-fence world to me.
There's an abundance of encouragement.

Every October, The Nester offers a challenge to write a blog post every day for 31 days 
at The Nesting Place.
 Just pick a subject and write about it every day in October.

I'm going to try to do it.

I see the challenge partly as an opportunity to just do it and take the tedium and pressure out of
trying to make everything just right.

So ... pardon the imperfections ...

I'm going to try to do it.

Recently I was thinking about various things that have worked well for me in one area of life or another ...
and that's what I'm going to blog about.

Frequently I bemoan the fact that I learn things that really do work for me...

about living a life as a growing follower of Christ,
about family,
about homeschooling,
about managing my home,
about managing me ...

and then I forget - or just stop.
 This will be a refresher course, and you're invited to come along.

I'll probably use it as an opportunity to post lots of my favorite random pictures, too.

Hey ... it works for me!
