Yesterday, I picked up a load of horse manure for the garden. It was suggested to me that I write today’s blog about that. I wasn’t at all opposed to that idea – I will take everything I can get. But I already had an idea rolling around in my head. Then as I was taking a much needed shower (imagine that), it came to me that I could indeed incorporate waste products into today’s blog.

Friday, I wrote about our last family trip from a year ago. Which means over the past twenty months, I have pretty much covered everything - my life story from college to current, all of the trips I have been on and probably more useless information about myself than anyone needs to know. Or so you thought.

This weekend I had big plans to roll out a new and improved blog. I was going to have a fetching name with an inspirational Bible passage that tied into it. I was going to put up an awesome picture of myself. I was going to hunt down the perfect background for it all, something even more eye-catching than I have now. Yes, I have been obsessing about this big move for months. And here we are. No new exciting blog.

Hmm? I could sit here and kick myself for being so lazy, berate myself that how can I even think that I could ever be a writer if I am not creative enough to jazz up my blog. But instead, I am just going to put some manure on it and see what comes up. I promise that you won’t have to wait until spring.

At this time, I am going to make a few changes to my blog. In an attempt to work on my book more often, I am only posting three days a week. Also, I am not going to work so hard on posting pictures every time. I know that everyone likes these images, but it gets very time consuming. If I have the perfect picture already on hand, you will see it, otherwise, my words will have to suffice (though I might need a thousand of them.)

If you would like my posts automatically e-mailed to you, just type your e-mail address in the “follow by e-mail” box on the right side. It will arrive in your inbox hours after I post it. I know that a lot of you follow me from Facebook. That’s great, but I would love to have more followers signed up on my blog. You can do that from another box in the right side column.

Over the next few weeks, as I am inspired, I will start making more changes. Thank you for faithfully reading my ramblings, and please send any and all comments that you have. Remember I am not getting paid for this, so your feedback is all I’m living on here.

Glad to see you spreading this as well as the Word.

That would be from my husband. Do you suppose he is implying that I don't do enough work around the house?
