I have, I have been missing some of you. I hope some of you have been missing me too? Because my time is so limited lately, I first catch up with those who have stopped by me. That is only fair. I want to stop by other discussions but I run out of time. I am not purposefully ignoring any one. Or keeping tabs, I am just short of time. and it worries me. But, this month, I have decided, I am going to focus on those who focus on me. I am going to forget those who have forgotten me. I am going to stop making an extra effort to contact those, who don't make an extra effort to contact me. I am going to try to laugh more and stress less. It is the second last month of the year and I need to accept that some things will not get done and I am only human and I have to take care of me too. What will you be doing this month? I hope it will be a kind month for you all. Photo is mine.

This month I will be on another business trip again. Don't usually have mylot goals except for being here at least every single day but I can't really keep that promise because of my hectic schedule. But I do try my best. Let me add you a a friend so I won't ever forget you at all, but don't feel bad when you don't see me often as I can really be busy but rest assure, I never forget my friends at all.

Same here, I try to be here, but it is not always possible. Even though I do try. But even if I am not always around, I do think of my friends here. Thank you, I understand. Enjoy your business trip!

@bluesa It will be on the 17th of the month. And it's just going to be for three days. So I'll try to be around every single day when I can before that.

Of course I missed you and I am glad to see you back. It's scary to think that this is the second last month of the year. Why every year the days seem to be less?

@LadyDuck I agree. I think when get older in age, time seems go back more quickly. I know when I was a kid, years would take forever.

Thank you so much, Anna . Yes, it is as if each year speeds by faster. Is it because we rush from holiday to holiday or is it just life? I don't know, but the months are going quicker than ever.

@bluesa I fear it's the age. When I was a young girl the time seemed never to pass.

Yes, like I missed you those few days you were so busy. Luckily we all are here for each other when we have time. I also though was talking about my daily life and that I have to change some things. I don't know how this year sped by so.

@bluesa It's difficult to change your daily routine, but I hope you find something that works well for you. Of course, there are those daily surprises which throw things off, too! Time does fly! Too fast if you ask me.

Sounds like a good plan. My focus this month is on writing for the National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo. I'm currently involved in the November challenge to write 50K in 30 days. I'm keeping to the daily goal so far.

i so like your bouquet of flowers. i like its color arrangements. surely you planted those in your garden, right? i cannot grow a plant or even hold a rose- it immediately withers.

@bluesa really? hahaha! oh so, we are similar in that aspect. when the father of my son courted me in Kuwait, he often gave me flowers like a bouquet of roses. when i put the flowers in a vase, on the next day, the flowers already wither. indeed, i cannot tend or grow a plant.

Only so many hours in a day! An a wise old saying goes like this "if you can't please everyone, you've got to please yourself." Part of a song by Ricky Nelson called Garden Party. So true
