A Storykeeping Challenge: Just Write

Life has been so full over here. There are days like today where I literally roll out of bed and don’t stop working until it’s time to brush my teeth and go to bed.

I have decided to call things like “make dinner” and “do laundry” working because they’re projects in my day as our home manager. Or at least they’re supposed to be! Some days, I’m not even home to take care of those tasks.

Today was one of those days, which is why — yikes! — it’s after 10 pm, and I’m only now getting to sit down to say hello to all of you.

How have you been?

Me? I came home tonight with a whole car and trailer full of building materials (and spotted a huge bald eagle on the way home!), so we’ve got a busy weekend ahead of us at the hangar loft. It’s exciting, and I can’t wait to show you what we accomplish.

But so far, all we’ve done is unload the car and make a pot of tea.

Facebook has been awesome! Thank you to everyone who has been participating in conversation, sharing stories, and laughing with me on the Gadanke page. We’re creating a community. This is definitely something I want to keep up.

We had a little challenge to start writing our stories more. We started with something simple: just write!

Yeah to everyone who did just that. We all have to start somewhere, and it helps to do it all together. Three gals are even sharing peeks of what they did right here. Yippee! (And of course, that’s an entry from my Love Where We Live home minibook this week with a photo from earlier in the remodel.)

Here’s a peek at Juliette‘s She: Me, My Heart, My World journal:

Here’s a spread from Jane‘s journal, the other She journal:

Here’s a shot from Christina‘s Become journal, which is a diary that’s becoming so popular these days. I love the big dreaming!

We’ll have another type of storykeeping challenge in another week. Between waiting for that on Facebook and the crazy progress I think we’ll make at the hangar, I can’t wait to see what happens.

But for now? Sleep.

Did you do any storykeeping this week? Or will you this weekend? How did it go?
