Blog Writing Slump...

I've had a major case of blog writing slump these past few weeks.  Not sure if it is the weather - cold,  rainy days or what but it just doesn't seem like anything going in my life has been post worthy.  I am sure that I am not the only blogger to suffer from bouts of this.  
I think I need to create a go to list so when I don't have anything to write about I can just pull topics from the list.  There have been a couple of memorable occasions and I took pictures but have yet to download them.  This past Sunday was my hubby and my wedding anniversary so we managed to get a sitter and went out for dinner and the week before that we packed up the whole family and went to my friend's new restaurant that he just opened.  I took lots of photos of that excursion and did promise to write a review, so that post will be forthcoming in the next few days.  
A couple of weeks ago my Dad, my two girls and myself took a small road trip down to what used to be Northern State Mental Hospital - now rumored to be haunted.  My oldest daughter is writing a history project on the place - it's funny what you find in your own backyard that you never knew existed!  This place is only about a 45 minute drive from my house and I never even heard of it before.  I suppose that our day trip and photos are another blog post waiting to happen!

In retrospect, I guess I do have several things I could be blogging about so my "slump" must just be weather related.  I always have the hardest time during the transition from Winter to Spring.  All of the Winter Holidays are already past and I just seem to get into"funk" during this time of year - I need my sunshine and spring flowers!  It doesn't help that I woke up to a dusting of snow on everything this morning.  After writing this post I suppose I have gained a little bit of motivation - so maybe I am starting a roll!  Until next time,

Thank you for stopping by ~


  1. Yes, I think we all hit a wall with blogging sometimes. So glad that you've already figured out that there is always a lot to write about and it's usually right at our fingertips...an anniversary, a haunted former mental institution...oh, yes! And you're off!

    1. It also helps when people respond.....sometimes I feel like I should be starting posts with "Dear Diary....."
      Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me know I am not writing to just myself!
