the always enjoyable Sue Elvis at her blog "Sue Elvis Writes," I've been doing my own version of what she did recently. Bringing a few archived posts back to life - at least, that is the hope.
My "has trouble following mechanical directions" brain decided to take off on its own and "intuit" a way to get some old blog pics with links on my sidebar (rather than following Sue's clear directions), and somehow I managed to manage. I'm, ahem, the person who once sheepishly asked my engineer husband if he would please please please learn to embroider a French knot from the EASY instructions in my guidebook, and then show me in person how to do it. Ah, now that's a lesson he was thrilled to learn. But I digress....
Sue's own instructions are quite do-able for anyone who knows the blogging ropes better than I (which is almost everyone), so if you'd like to see how this was done, click here for her guidance. Most posts, as Sue points out, have no use-by date. They just slide off into the semi-retired world of "older posts." Yet I, for one, have been delighted that Sue has pointed out some posts from the days before I found her blog.
As for me, I've also had fun grabbing a few of my earlier posts, for I did enjoy doing them. I went for some that were "seasonal" (I expect to change some of these as spring blooms appear), and liked re-visiting snowy thoughts from last winter. I admit to liking ice encrusted pictures on the blog at this time of year; mostly because I haven't yet slipped on a patch of sidebar ice.
So if you've been staying awake nights wondering why my wedding cake was just plain white (surely that question has plagued you), or about the man I married (with maybe a glimpse into why I chose him), or what main thought gets me through life, you can find the LONG AWAITED ANSWERS under the heading "Selections From the Archives" on the lower sidebar.
Thanks for your inspiration, Sue .. all the way around. Your ingenuity is a wonder!
