To blog or not to blog...

That is the question! I've gone back and forth on this... why blog? Because I feel like I want to... 

Background... I've had a couple of blogs before. Felt pressure to blog often and with content that would be interesting! Ha! I don't have dreams of being a writer... but I enjoy writing. I've journaled for several years and have boo-coos of journals in storage. Mostly I just write down things God impresses on me during my quiet times with Him.

I was sweeping this morning in our RV (which takes about 2 minutes), and have been trying to "be in the moment" with everything I do. And the phrase "the zen of sweeping" came to me. Being in the moment instead of thinking ahead to the next thing. I have problems with this! I'm always moving on to the next thing. I want to be here now. In whatever I'm doing!

My husband and I are on a year-long road trip right now. We are just starting month 5. My dream road trip includes a beach and an ocean. We haven't hit that yet! Well, we did explore Monterrey Bay when we were in California but it was just a day trip. I need more! In the process of wanting a beach location, I don't want to miss where we are... which is presently northern Indiana in Amish country. I've always been intrigued with the Amish lifestyle... and I'm around it right now. Even in the barrenness of New Mexico, I wanted to appreciate it for its own beauty. So this has been a journey for me in many ways... the most important one is being where I am!

Not sure where this blog will go... It's really just for me to remember where I've been.


  1. It never ceases to amaze me how much we think alike. Well, except for that "athletic stuff" you like to do. And maybe politics. Nevertheless, sometimes it's as if you are reading my mind.

  2. TO blog! I'm so happy that you found my blog and I, in return, found yours. It is so nice to read the blogs of a fellow nomad (and Texan!), so I say keep on blogging... about whatever you fancy, and we will keep on reading. :)

    1. Thanks for "finding me"! Yes! That's what drew me to your blog... a fellow nomad and Texan!
