I’ve come to the conclusion that making a commitment to blog every weekday (M-F) is akin to making New Year Resolutions — well-intentioned but difficult to carry out. You probably noticed tnat there has not been a blog post since last Wednesday or Thursday. On Thursday and Friday I got up early to start working on decluttering and grubbing out my family room. This 14′ x 20′ room is where hubby and I and our Shih Tzus spend much of our time. Junk and dirt accumulate, especially when I’m in writing mode (which also happens in the family room) and demands to be attended to from time to time.
On Friday night and Saturday afternoon I performed at our local Scottish Highland Festival with Kitchen Ceilidh (‘kay-lee”). We are a group of women who sing traditional folk songs in Scottish Gaelic. We usually dress up in traditional costumes that were common in the highlands of Scotland in the 1500-1600s Sunday was church in the morning and my son’s softball game late in the afternoon. Monday I slept in and recouped my energy.
As soon as I can manage to figure out how to add pictures (hopefully by tomorrow) I am going to post a series of blogs about Scottish Highland Games and Scottish/Celtic Festivals.
By the way, I’ve been informed that videos of Kitchen Ceilidh performing have been posted to You Tube. I haven’t seen them yet due to the megabyte restraints on my internet usage but I’m providing links here so that you can see them.
