Evidently a girl (this girl anyway) can’t garden AND blog. Seems that last post about the garden was a farewell of sorts, but I’ve not abandoned blogging completely. Although after not posting for some time, I did start to wonder about this blog a bit. Is it mostly for me to express my own personal thoughts & feelings? Or is it a tool to keep my extended family in touch with my family or a way to chronicle our life, like a digital scrapbook (although scrapbook is a bad word to me). I don’t know, I never came to a conclusion other than I don’t think very many deep thoughts to share – I mean, they come and go occasionally, but it is the go that is a problem. If they would only come back when I sit down to write. And the chronicling of our life just sounds sort of boring or braggy or potentially unrealistic. And with the exception of one family member (thanks Ben), no one seems to have noticed my absence. Oddly enough, after typing this earlier today I came across this post on another blog (total stranger) which is a good enough answer for me.
