It Takes a Village

Oh, hai. Can you believe it’s been 30 days already? Little c™ and I have enjoyed NaBloPoMo this year.

We’ve shared our penchant for Formula 1 racing, tuna, good stories, and binkies. Little c™ learned about our magic closet and how to construct a decent knock knock joke. We also learned to embrace our differences and to honor who we each are in the process while listening to good music and swapping stories with friends.

All in all a really great month.

Today’s writing prompt reads, “What’s the longest stretch you’ve ever pulled off of posting daily to your blog? What did you learn about blogging through that achievement, and what made you break the streak?”

I think 30 consecutive days is the longest I’ve blogged. Mom says she blogged every day for an entire year once and that it was simultaneously challenging and rewarding. She says once or twice a week is probably good for us, though, and I’d have to agree. It’s nice to have some days off in between. But what we learned during this month is that blogging can be a communal experience. It doesn’t have to be just one person, or cat, sharing their thoughts. We’ve enjoyed working with all of our guest bloggers this month and even meeting some new bloggers along the way.

We hope you’ve enjoyed our 30-day blog fest. We’re going to sign off now. In gratitude for all of you. It takes a village to blog, and we’re proud to be part of yours.

Until next time…

Your honored hosts.

Your devoted hosts, J.D. and little c™


Full Circle

Oh, hai. Has it been cold where you are?

Little c™ and I braved the patio for almost a minute this morning.

But we decided it was better inside.

We're pampered, and that's OK.

Where it’s warm.

After we got inside we asked mom about today’s writing prompt. She says it reads, “What’s the best present you’ve ever received that was handmade by the giver, not store-bought? Tell us what made it so special.”

Little c™ says he likes it when mom gets up to make tea, so he can take her binky and her spot on the couch. He says you can’t put a price on a warm seat. Or a binky.

In addition to stealing binkies and warm seats, little c™ made this today to let mom know he’d had enough of cold weather and was ready for spring.

And I made this to let mom know I was glad we didn’t have to tell any more knock knock jokes tonight.

Mom says she agrees on both counts.

And then she took this shot of us, so you’d know it was time for bed.

Actually, it was my idea. c™ pretty much follows my lead.

We thought the least we could do was warm it up for her before she climbed in.

Full circle, ya’ll.
