{another post from my drafts folder, be glad I updated it, the horror of what I wrote a few years ago... *embarrassed smile*}


  1. I always tend to have tons of drafts (I just checked 83, not sure its been this bad before) because I get an idea and then write it "when I feel like it" or its a post for a series or its a post to collect links. I think my oldest is 3 years old.

    1. Livia: I'm certainly glad to know I'm not the only one who does this! When I was going through mine, I found a couple that I clearly had a good idea at one point and then didn't write enough in the drft to remind me all these years later what it was that I was going to actually post about. Not entirely helpful! :D


Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the internet! :)
