World's Worst Blogger Award

I've come to realize that I'm the world's worst blogger.
It's ok.
I really am ok with it.
Is there an award for that?
I'm giving it to myself.

I mean - I start a story - and never finish it -
I start things like the "Pink Chicken Revolution" and then never speak of it for a year -
I have the best of intentions, I truly do.
Life just keeps getting in the way.
Love me.

We came home from camping a day early.
It was HOT.  Like 102 with a heat index of 110.
 There was no sleeping to be had.
I tried to sleep the second night out on a vintage chaise lounge, right outside of the camper.
It didn't work.
MY towels were disheveled on the line and I just didn't care.
Bring on the foil.
I couldn't care.
I wouldn't.

Camping is a fall activity.

So let it be written, so let it be done.

It's Monday am at 5:53am and I have 19 roosters serenading me, and the entire neighborhood.
I may also be the world's worst neighbor.

Today's blog will be short and pointless.
Please reference the first sentence of this post.

At "Art in the Garden" at Gardens on the Prairie yesterday with my friend Laura Snyder.
I just bought that super cute hat!
I feel like the old Jayme is rearing her lovely head again.
I have a list.
It's now 5:55am and I'm heading out to the garden as soon as I hang the sheets on the line.

I have to say - I think I'm more comfortable with this Jayme.  I have to blend the two - the new carefree Jayme - and the old Nazi Jayme.

I'm completely renovating the garden.
I gave away two trunkloads of perennials yesterday.
I sold my loom.
I feel driven.
I got the cutest new pair of glasses you ever did see - pick them up in a week.

Aaron shan't be testing for the GED until August 15th and 16th - so please adjust your prayer and fasting schedules.

It's too light out to be up and on the Interweb.
"Ve must get to vork!"
Happy Monday!


  1. I need new glasses and now I must be a wee bit envious. The hat is cute but I look like a squirrel with a hat on. Truly. My eyes are on the side of my head. Makes for a good driver though b/c my peripheral is excellent.
    In other news my blogging is sub-par too. It could be why we get on so. I am off to start 24 chores and to leave all but 3 unfinished. It's how I roll. Good Day Sir. xoxo

  2. jayme - everything in moderation!... to throw out all the old you would just be ludicrous! There's a reason you are a success story.. YES YOU ARE! Just hush. It' partly because of what you've been made of all along. So a list now and then is a good thing. Know what I'm saying?

  3. Jayme,
    Love the hat,
    Love the old Jayme,
    you're finally on the right track. A blend is good.
    I just made a list for my garden. I have direction now. Lists give me direction. I LOVE THEM.

  4. Jayme, no one is looking for perfection. A blend of new and old is wonderful and if one sometimes comes out what? Stand strong, you are OK and that is enough.

  5. Jayme, I have missed you !!:):) I know what you mean about starting one thing and ending up finishing another...What do you mean that isn't the right way:):) You are more like the rest of us than you ever dreamed. Smiles, Susie

  6. all change is good. it takes time & you are learning to do new things. we are here waiting ever so patiently. ha. ha!! well, sort of wishing you would post because we love you so. but we so understand. ha. ha!! love you chickie. stay sweet. big big hugs. (:

  7. Loved it. I do believe fall & spring is the best time for camping. It's hot everywhere. I'm up early as well these days....too humid and stormy to be outside though. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week.

  8. For the love of Pete.... you are NOT the worst blogger ever! I love reading your drivel!


  9. See, you're an inspiration. Change can be a good thing, but so can the old ways.
    We went camping this last weekend, in the high 90s. Needless to say we spent most of the hot time in the lake.

  10. Yur crakin' me up again, Jayme!
    Happy Monday back atcha. - Joanie

  11. Jayme, I love your blog posts. You always tell a good story.

  12. Jayme, We just camped for 4 days in the rain and humidity and heat. I wholeheartedly agree, camping is an AUTUMN activity. Summer is for fans and ice. I hold this truth to be self evident, besides, the fall colors are so pretty through the pop up's bed screens :^) ~Vonnie

  13. Oh yes! a good receipe! sold your loom??!

    Lists now and again are good things...

  14. Jamye,

    I just found you!
    I am smitten!
    You are inspiring!
    Look: chickens, cats, vintage!
    All with OCD neatness!

    I’ve baked your bread!
    In a Dutch oven!
    Hubby said, ‘what?’
    I said, ‘found my muse on the Web’
    Hubby said, ‘what?’
    I said, ‘she’s not scary, she’s empowering!’
    Hubby said, ‘what?’

    You inspired me to clean out a box yesterday!
    (I read your whole blog from 2009-present! . . . dizzy)
    I threw something away!
    Baby steps!
    Fiddle-dee-dee . . .
    After all . . . tomorrow is another day.

    [I pray, but fasting scares me.]


  15. Awww, I loved the "Pink Chicken Revolution." :) Well, and everything you write about!! ;)

  16. We love you just the way you are! Been following you for about a year now and you never cease to amaze me, make me think, make me laugh, and inspire the heck out of me. You go girl. Keep blogging and being fabulous. You are much loved...

  17. I love me a good list - it gives me direction.
    Clucking chickens early in the morning? Not-so-much.
    The hat is a keeper and you wear it well!

  18. I just stopped by to see if you were awarding the world's worst blogger award to ME! xo, Cheryl

  19. Wow. I sure do love camping. Its the best way to bond with friends and families. I agree that fall and spring is the best time of the year.

  20. Just love reading you blog!!!

  21. Like my ol' reliable Sock Monkey, I come to visit and leave with a smile in my heart! You are in the blog today...

  22. You blog like what goes on in my mind every waking hour. Jumping from here to there and everywhere amongst a plethora of subjects! I totally get you. I think we may be long lost sisters :D

  23. I truly love reading your blog, a smile always comes to my face!

  24. We are who we are...I continue to
    make lists...I am who I am! :-)
