I Try And I Try...Why Do I Fail??

I try so hard to keep my Blog updated and have regular postings...most of the time, I accomplish that but I can't seem to conquer the times when I have lapses.   Time passes so fast and I'm trying to keep up, oftentimes unsuccessfully.  Before I know it, two or three weeks have gone by and that is not fair to everyone...you don't know if someone is busy or if they were run over by a truck or dropped from an airplane.  All I can say is that I am sorry, it is so unintentional on my part to have these lapses and not be able to keep up with everyone.  Things get busy at work and home and I'll decide that I will post tomorrow and then tomorrow doesn't work out and I'll post the next day and then suddenly, half of the month has passed and I have not done a single post...and in my favorite month of the year.  Have I groveled enough?  


I have been busy planning our annual Halloween Party coming up later this month...well NOW, actually I'm talking next weekend.  Time, time...please, please slow down just a bit - You are killing me...literally.  I have mailed invitations, have about 50 lists and am working through preparations and shopping for needed items.  On paper, I'm planning to sail into the party day with almost everything completed.  This is my goal every year and most times I do pretty well, however the last two years, I have failed horribly and am at the last minute making sure all is ready.  Not this year.  That is my goal, do it all and just like I plan it with no cutting corners and be done early. 

This year, I have ordered two 10x30 party tents with sides.  I plan to combine the two tents to make one large 20x30 tent where folks can get warm, or stay inside out of the chill.  All the food and tables will be set up under the tents and I'll have the tent heated, if needed.  This will give my guests the opportunity to move back and forth between the bonfire area and tent area, just in case it is cold or raining, this year.  Keeping my fingers crossed that it will be a mild Autumn night with no wind or rain. 

I'm going to leave you with a promise to come by and visit with you soon.  I have gotten to some folks this week, but am still working on visiting all my regulars.  I'm sorry, that I have been MIA.  You mean a lot to me and I miss seeing what everyone is up to, especially at this, my favorite time of year. 

Here are a few of my decorating pictures that I don't think I have shared yet.  I can't do a post without photos.

Your decor is so fun. You have some really cute "spooky" things. I know you will have a super party. Don't worry about posting. It should just be fun and not a chore. Post when you can, because life really does happen. Hugs, Marty

I love that white polka dot pumpkin. It's so fun. Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging....it's ok.

Those are beautiful pictures, you had me at the blue scarecrow and autumn leaves picture at the top. I love that you use a multitude of colors in your decor, not just the expected oranges and yellows.

I understand the whole intend to post, but life gets in the way. I told myself to just commit to one or two blogs a week to begin with, then you can do more when you're experienced. Instead I have to remind myself to get out one! I'm amazed at these people who can add post daily, and obviously are still shopping, decorating and running around, because they actually have something to blog about!

Good luck on your Halloween party, it sounds like a real hoot. Share pictures, I need to think about when I give a party for grownups, instead of the kids only.

If your party is as good as your pictures it will be fantastic. My daughter is having one I will be going to. She's having ponies and goats for the children and loads of games to play. I think it will be fun. I'm sick a lot so my blog is not always up to date. It's easy to let things slip. Doylene
