One Moment | Time

I have grown to love blogging, it’s a habit for me now. I set the goal to blog every weekday a couple of years ago, and I’ve pretty much managed to do that. When I DON’T, I feel this nagging sensation in the back of my head. But I have come to realize that I can only spend so long in front of the computer each day. Even when there is actually more time that I COULD be on the computer, there is a point of diminishing returns! Blogging over the years has helped me realize that I can’t do it all, and I’ve decided to cut myself some slack in the blogging department!

I’m sure most weeks I’ll still be here every work-day, but I now am proclaiming to the world that if I DON’T, then that’s OK too! Hooray! 🙂

I did want to share with you some pictures of our navel orange tree. We planted it 7 years ago, but for the first 5 years it wasn’t getting watered properly. Now that hubby figured that out, look what’s almost ready for eating:

  1. Oh, those are beautiful! I am more than a little jealous… We have plans to plant a couple apple trees soon. Hopefully they will look as good as your orange tree someday.

    Blogging will wait for you and so will your readers 🙂

  2. So glad that you are giving yourself permission to skip days. Enjoy your life!

    And btw, the oranges look so delicious. I can almost smell them!

  3. oh WOW! a real tree that bears actual fruit! what heaven… are you going to grab & juice every morning? i would. i can’t believe that the name “navel orange” still makes me giggle as a full grown adult. it makes me picture people walking around with oranges in their belly buttons.

  4. Yum, those look delicious! I think it’s ok to blog a little less frequently, if that’s what works for you. I feel like I’m sort of getting back into the swing of things and for me it would be ideal to blog 3 or 4 times per week.

  5. What a treat to be able to pick oranges in your own backyard! Not possible where I live in CT.

  6. Oh my goodness, I’m so jealous of your tree. How beautiful and delicious. What I’d give for one in my yard!

    I completely understand that “nagging sensation” you experience if you’ve not blogged. It IS okay if you don’t post every day. I need to remind myself of that as well. Luckily, I think Twitter gives us an opportunity to let people know when we’re back.
