Indigenous Peoples Day
I thought about linking to some inflammatory anti-Columbus Day stuff, but I’m not going to. I don’t have a problem with Columbus but I don’t understand why there is a federal holiday in his honor. And crediting him for “discovering” America is a stretch.
But today I’m focusing on positive things like how awesome it was to have my closet all turned over and re-organized for winter. Now I can easily find my closed-toe shoes, fuzzy sweaters and wool slacks. Now the weather is probably going surprise us with one last warm sunny streak and I’ll need to dig out the linen slacks again. *And I won’t complain a bit.*
People are already talking about NaBloPoMo which is National Blog Posting Month in November where you post every single day for a month. I did it last year and was the grand prize winner. It was a drawing, not like someone judged my posts. I think that might sound ungrateful but not my intention: it was awesome.
I decided not to participate this year. I loved all the extra traffic and comments and I loved reading so many other blogs and making new friends. However, I’ve got some other projects that I need to prioritize right now and I can’t afford to invest that much time hanging out on the Internet. Even as I’m typing this, I’m trying to talk myself into it. Something about the structure of having to do something every day appeals to my inner dictator. We’ll see. But probably not.
