Getting Caught Up And The Pay It Forward Challenge!

What's my excuse today lol. O.K. confession - I had a lazy day yesterday though I did walk over 4000 steps in spite of a lot of sitting around.

I don't seem to have a full weekend off anymore. Such is life. Every second weekend I work a half day at my regular job. And every other weekend I work with Carol Guilford , cookbook author. I tried to make a schedule to go to her place from work on Friday afternoons, because I'm already halfway there.

She is about 20 miles from my place so there's time and gas involved, and also the fact of having 2 days clear in front of me for a weekend.

But that hasn't worked out for various reasons. Oh well. So today I work and I'm grateful for it.

Yesterday morning I discovered arthurchappell has chosen my posts to read for the .

This challenge is to choose an author and read and comment on 10 posts. And for that author to pay it forward too. I chose Telynor . I love the book and television reviews as we have the love of historical fiction in common.

So she is now challenged to do the . I found it very enjoyable.

I am determined to get back here after working today! I have tons of deleted material to review and post here if I choose. It will be nice to see some of them re-published with photos that are not fuzzed out and ruined.

I'm off to get organized now and will see more of you later!

If you like the sound of the challenge you can just go for it!

I love the positive energy I feel when I read many of your posts. : ) I think Dawnwriter 's idea of the Pay It Forward challenge is an excellent idea and I'm not at all surprised to find you have participated.

I hadn't read about the challenge until now. I think it's great that more established members are making a concerted effort to support the writing of newer arrivals emoticon :smile:
