Thankful Thursday: For a busy life

Photo By Tracy S. Williams
The streets are paved with purple? Or are they?

I altered three areas of this photo, so maybe it's purple or not. 

I've decided to keep my once a week blog schedule. I used to post three times a week and enjoyed it. Over the summer, I took a break from that schedule as I added some community college courses into my routine. The classes were fun and now fall semester is in full swing. 

My class load isn't overwhelming — two website design classes. I'm also assembling a digital photography portfolio to get credit for prior learning for a course. Throw in writing, revision and a little thing called family and life. Well, it you are doing the math, it adds up to busy. 

Who isn't busy? 

Silence. I can't think of a single person. 

The once a week blog schedule is my way of keeping my world in check. I may post on other days at random, when I have a guest or when I'm on another blog. And, I'll still be reading and stopping by your blogs to say, "Hi."

I'm thankful that I'm old enough to realize there are only so many hours in the day. Now, to return to the dream of a place with purple streets. 

I'll see you for Perfect Picture Book Fridays


  1. Rad photo, Stacy! :) It's nice to hear about someone's gratitude regarding busyness. I'm with you, much because I love most of what that entails.

  2. You are a wise woman. I kinda figured that out before this.
    But now I know you're also the kind of woman who loves purple streets ... and if you can't find any, you'll pave 'em yourself.
    Love this photo!

  3. Cool photo, Stacy! You have to do what works for your life. Happy Thursday!

  4. Oh - streets paved with purple grapes - or purple Skittles...not sure which.

    You're doing a great job juggling all those priorities. It's the busy people who get things done!

  5. You are a wise woman, Stacy. See you on the purple streets of Perfect Picture Book Friday!

  6. I'm always amazed by people who manage to blog more than once a week. They must be visited by the energy-giving fairies every night. But I'm glad you'll still be here once a week. I love all your posts, even if I don't get to comment as often as I would like.

  7. I admire your wisdom, Stacy, and wish I could do a better job of controlling my own busy life! I need to learn a thing or two from you about balance! Glad you will still be around for PPBF though :)

  8. Great wisdom. I will be rethinking it all in January with changes afoot! Glad you will still be involved with PPBF!

  9. Loving the dream with purple streets! I'm with you on the once a week posts. I was a nutcase when I posted more. Well, more of a nutcase. :)

  10. I"m with JOanna rethinking it in January. For now I'll enjoy blogging twice a week. Usually a guest and ppbf. love it :)

  11. Yes, Stacy. The streets are paved purple. Beautiful!
    Your post resonated with me. I find it difficult to post more than once a week. My plan is to post twice a week now that my new blog is up and running (although with a few issues that still need ironing).
    Like today, I've been commenting and responding to emails since 9:00 a.m. and it's already 2:00 p.m. and I'm not even half way there. So today, is not a productive day in terms of writing.
    Enjoy your weekend.:)

  12. I think you made a wise decision. I scaled back my blog posting as well. Sometimes I feel guilty, but it didn't help me write more. I'll see you in Denver this weekend!
