Weekend Fun

I hope you all had a great weekend! Drew and I did some major damage Christmas shopping on Saturday. He got some cute biker shorts and other cycling related items. Gap was having a nice sale, so, I bought some sweaters. How selfish of us that we didn't buy one thing for anyone else! Oh, well. There are still a few shopping days before Christmas. Yes, I am one of those crazies who waits til the very last minute.

It is perfect weather here in Dallas/ Fort Worth. I am grateful, but I still cannot believe it is going to be in the 60's and 70's the week of Christmas. Amazing! On Sunday, we went for a leisurely bicycle ride around River Legacy Park. The trees were all bare and not so pretty. But hey, it makes it easier to see the bobcats hiding in the bushes before they jump out and maul me to death.

I'm only kidding. They are harmless. http://durangotexas.blogspot.com/2010/10/bobcat-her-baby-playing-at-river-legacy.html Besides, they would probably give up on me after several hours of trying to chew through my first layer of fat.

On a more serious note, when I set out to write this blog, I wanted it to be about something- anything- just as long as it was slighty interesting and on about a 3rd grade reading level. When I was on my raw food journey, I wanted to write about that. But now that I know that is not my path in life, I have nothing to write about. I could always just write about the things I do day-to-day, but really, I am kind of simple and boring. No one wants to read the uninteresting happenings of a married twenty-something. So, over the next couple of weeks, I am going to ponder what I want to write about. I want to have a focus for my blog. Otherwise, I don't feel it is worth maintaining. I am leaning towards covering current events/issues. I am open to suggestions, though! What do you all want to hear my insightful opinions on? :)



  1. You could write about people and organizations around the world that actually do something good instead of just talk about it. Or, you could use your blog to berate people and organizations that waste time, energy and resources being petty instead of trying to help others.

  2. My blog is a smörgasbord of everything from daily life, to Bible topics, to health and healing. It's also my opportunity to use big, foreign words, like smörgasbord.

    I suggest you just be yourself, and post whatever comes up! I enjoy everything you write. :)

  3. In most cases, I don't think it is our activities that make us interesting so much as it is the thoughts we think and the way that we view life (both the ordinary and the not so ordinary events). I occasionally read the blogs of several acquaintances who seemingly never have an original or profound thought, and do, indeed prattle on incessantly about every mundane happening in their lives with no unique perspective or observations about them whatsoever (e.g., "today I washed dishes and packed for my trip home for the holidays..."). Um. On the other hand, I've read enough of your writing to know that you're very intelligent, have an "old soul", a sense of humor, a refreshing take on most things, as well as the courage to speak up and say exactly what you think whether anyone likes it or not. I will find it interesting to read whatever pops into your head! ~your aunt Julie :-)
