#AtoZChallenge: Lax


Gotta admit it. I’ve been lax in my blog visits the last two days, and I really couldn’t tell you why. It’s my favorite part of the challenge, reading what people come up with, discovering new blogs, sometimes seeing new places or admiring the skills of others.

I’d like to blame it on the new format this year but it’s not that. It’s just as easy to go through the links on the A to Z site, or find posts on twitter, or find others through comments on posts. The blogs are everywhere.

Could it just be that I’m having a streak of another L word?


I admit I am preoccupied with the goings-on of the world, with tensions high and an utterly unpredictable person in the White House, someone who’s proven his readiness to use violent, powerful weapons at a whim. And when I need to be writing, I am like this sometimes, staring at a block instead of working my way around it.

So if I’ve neglected you recently, I apologize, believe me, every unclicked click is cannonballing itself onto my pile of guilt. But there is an upside to  it all.

Lax is an l-word.

    That little thing called life has a habit of getting in the way. Life has certainly kept me from keeping up to date with the blogs that I’ve been enjoing (apart from yours, and obviously Debs’ (http://www.bunnyandthebloke.com/), I’ve been really enjoying Iain Kelly’s Scandinavian Noir (https://iainkellywriting.wordpress.com/) and James Pailey’s Science themed challange (https://planetpailly.com/). Oh and…no I’ll stop there… A catch up day is essential!

        Mainly trying to keep the weeds under contol, but we’ve put some nice flowers in, haven’t killed the sunflowers (yet) and have sweet-peas, tomatoes and the like under control. Lack of organasation at the moment so this will not be the year that we manage to get normal growing underway, but we usually manage some salad crops and runner-beans. We might get some carrots in. Maybe.

      • That sounds really lovely! I’d say that sounds pretty organized to me…I haven’t even gotten around to planting these little spring seeds I got for my windowsill.

        And it’s a kit.

        Sounds like a good procrastination project to me!

        Let’s just say that the garden is a work in progress, which to some extent it should be. One day we’ll get to a point of minimal upkeep…
