As I reflect on NaBloPoMo 2016, I'm so very grateful that you have taken the time to read my ramblings. Time is an incredibly valuable commodity for all of us, so I truly value that you have used some of it to read what I've written, and maybe even comment. I started writing as a way to record my thoughts when my life changed with my oldest son moving to Colorado from home here in New Jersey, and while my blog still serves that purpose for me (especially with my youngest son now living in Texas), I'm also astounded and gratified by the wonderful people I've met. Readers have provided me with support, humor, affirmation, knitting help, book recommendations, opportunities to learn, and just plain friendship, and I'm thankful for each one of you.

So with this last post of NaBloPoMo 2016, I say congratulations to everyone that managed to post daily; congratulations to everyone that posted at all, and a gigantic thank you to all the readers and commenters.

See you sometime in December, but after 30 consecutive posts, probably not tomorrow.

(Whoops. I forgot about Think Write Thursday, so I guess I will be back tomorrow!)


  1. We did it!!! I'm so glad we did it together, too.

  2. Ditto what Carole said! :-) (And I'm always astounded by the support and love I get through blogging. So unexpected -- and so wonderful.) XO

  3. Ditto what Carole and Kym said! And, I am really glad you participated! I loved reading all your posts! See you tomorrow for TWT!

  4. Ditto what Carole and Kym and Kat said!! ;)
    Blogging has enriched my life in so many ways. It's incredible.

  5. After my nearly silent November, I bow in awe to all of you! Thank you for sharing each and every day of November with us.

  6. Congratulations! It's been great fun joining you each day. See you tomorrow! :-)

  7. Cheers to all of us! this November certainly didn't turn out like we thought it would and I think we'll look back on our blogs and be truly grateful we have this daily record of what life was really like ... right now. and what a wonderful community we share. I have yet to meet you (or most of the folks who read my blog) in real life, but I count you among my dearest friends.

  8. I find it amusing that what we personally think of as dull thoughts are another person's inspiration. I LOVE reading your blog and your thoughts :) I constantly doubt my ramblings on my blog but then I have always been a "talker". I even talk to myself!

  9. Just a quick note to thank you for blogging daily in November. I really appreciate that it takes a lot to write daily, and I so enjoy reading your blog. Thank you!😄

    1. Thanks so much, Julia! I greatly appreciate your kind words!
