Welcome to my Take Seven compilation which incorporates all 21 words (or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.
You are most welcome to join in using as many or all of the words too. Just pingback to this post and then leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.
As always, have fun.
Our words this week were:
anniversary, blogging, bracket, cascade, dog, earthy, fresh, futile, leap, lock, mad, money, pale, party, peal, portion, pressure, slipper, tall, ticket, torch.
This month saw my seventh blogging anniversary and also one year of hosting the Three Things Challenge.
Both have come along in leaps and bounds, and I had no idea the support would cascade the way it has. It was a tall order to start something so unfamiliar, and I admit to thinking my efforts would be pretty futile compared with other blogs I began to read.
Originally, I had intended to bracket my blog to budgets and frugal living, but that paled into the background as I started writing about our fresh home grown produce, parties we’d given, poetry (including one of my Mum’s favourites called ‘Slippers‘), trips on the boat up river and navigation of the locks, the relief that the recorded peal of bells was turned off overnight at one of the berthing areas, tickets to the Canal Boat Festival at Stratford, portion control for my diet meals, the pressure of ill health, walking the dog by torch light, and the madness of government cutbacks generating money issues on an already limited income and worrying how on earth we were going to manage until official retirement.
So there you have it, all twenty one words from this week’s 3TCs and a personal post to boot!
