Simply Saturday

My blogging world is filled with Tadpoles, Sundays in My City, Flashback Fridays, Wordless Wednesdays, and various other things. I thought I needed to spice things up around here just a bit. So, I have come up with "Simply Saturday"..... I know, boring, eh? Oh well - I'm always a day late and a dollar short. LOL! The first day I was going to write a "Flashback Friday" post, I read one on my good friend's page. I don't really get out and about on Sundays so was glad to see that on another friend's page. Tadpoles... well, that's a whole world all by itself. I would never have thought to nickname us all as 'poles, but it's perfect and I love it.

Which leads me to Simply Saturday. Plain and simple, just like me. No thrills, no frills - yep, that pretty much sums up my Saturdays. By having "something" to write about, my creativity should be challenged just enough to make sure that I post SOMETHING relatively interesting.

I shall start this first "Saturday" post with a look back at last year. Sure, there were quite a few things that weren't the best; in fact, there were quite a few things that were positively horrid but they all turned out well. I also experienced quite a few wonderful events. My list of blessings greatly outweighs my list of down times.


I'm sure that my list of blessings should be much, much longer but I'm shooting for getting this actually posted while it's STILL Saturday. I have a bunch of things I should get done today, including some laundry and wrapping Isaiah's Christmas presents. They're coming over tomorrow afternoon and his stuff is still in my closet. I also should go to the store and get some food for tomorrow. Stacey (Ron's daughter) is bringing the hamburger but I need to get some buns, condiments, and something to go with the hamburgers. Something that Ron can actually eat (not chips). Easy on the dairy products so that lets cottage cheese out. Easy on potassium so that means potatoes are out. I've got to do some dietary overhauling for him.

Time to get cracking... I can't promise that I'll post something EVERY Saturday (heck, I'm still working on my 30-day thing) but that is one of my goals.

Hmmm.....

I'm glad that your list of blessings was longer than your list of not so good happenings in 2010. I shall look forward to reading your Simply Saturdays!

Teresa...I like your simple idea. Nothing better than down to earth and simple living people. I'm so grateful to begin 2011 with all of my blog friends and family and that includes you. I can't believe I didn't find this until this past year. Much love, happiness and most of all health to you and your loved ones. Hugs!!

Lovely post. Always good to stack the good against the bad. Most times the good will always win.
