One of the surprising things talked about last week in class was the importance of a blog. In a different context, but the importance was stressed. Fresh content. Relevant content. Informative content. With lists. Lots of lists. People love lists. I love lists.
These days when I go on Facebook one of my favorite things to check out are links to lists.

None of us want to have to dig too deep into a topic at first blush, but a pithy list? Bring it!
I am a list-maker. Always have been. From what I'm reading, my list-making is keeping me on task and organized.
I fear what would happen if I stopped my lists!
But I list-on. I've even, following my smart and lovely daughters in their lead, began using a handheld day planner again. Then the lists can be accompanied by check-offs. Oh those satisfying check-offs! Love love love this my hooches.
Pup and I traveled around in our little Rigatoni RV for 10 days last month. I might tell a few stories eventually, but lets say that mostly what we learned is that we really do make each other laugh, that our dog is adorable, that we love living where we do, and mountains are beautiful to look at, but from a distance.
There were a few times where I thought I was on a different planet! Our countryside is as varied as clever wine names.
Oh nummy! Wine! I think a glass of Ménage à Trois is in order!
What the heck?
A shot . . . or two . . .
But it has a bathroom, hot water heater, a furnace, an oven, and a tiny TV for movies. Perfect for two bone-tired travelers at the end of the day.
We would sit at the tiny table and plot out the day to follow. How many miles, where we would stop, and what we would see.
