It seems our Elf on a Shelf was inspired by the kids time playing in the snow. With marshmallows and tooth picks he built is own ‘igloo’. Though it seems he ran out of marshmallows before he could finish.

Today is the first day of September, and though the calendar says there are three more weeks of summer, everyone knows that it’s really only five more days. Ever since I started school Labour Day has marked the true end of summer and the beginning of the new year. As much as we celebrate January 1st, it’s really the first Monday of September that the new year begins. I used to think that when I was done with school that it would change, that Labour Day would be just another holiday, but it hasn’t. Even before I had kids of my own, it still marked a change of seasons. Work seems to pickup after slowing down while people were away during the summer. Now that I have kids, it’s back to being a major event. We go from a summer of a different schedule every week to the fixed schedule of the school year, and the return of our winder activities.
With all that change we are already facing in September I’ve asked myself, if I want to make some personal resolutions, why should I wait till January, why not start now. September brings more changes to my life than January why not add a few more. So today is my resolution day. Today I start some changes in my life.
For over 5 years I took the time every day to share something on my blog. For most of that time it was my picture of the day, but sadly back in November that streak came to an end. I wish I could say what happened, why a month that I was hoping to inspire me to get back to writing regularly on my blog could be when I stopped posting at all. I can’t, it started with me taking longer and longer to post my picture of the day, till one day I didn’t then another and another. Next thing I knew it was December and I hadn’t shared a picture of the day since November 6th. I took them, but they are just sitting in my photo library waiting to be shared.
I tried to jumpstart my blogging in December, but it failed.
So I set my sights on the new year. I hopped that I could start 2016 with a renewed commitment to the blog. The first came and went with no new posts.
