What have I done?

I've been tossing around the idea of a blog for some time. I even went so far as to set one up on another service, then just never followed through. It was kind of cumbersome and not user friendly. I'm a simple girl. Well, ok, maybe not so simple; close friends think of me as rather complex, I guess. But I like "things" to be simple. I'm kind of impatient with technology and like the process to be easy and quick. Setting up this blog was both.

So, tonight I decided to take the plunge and start a blog. My daughter-in-law blogs about our grandchildren at eoshow.blogspot.com/and I got tired of posting comments as "anonymous" because I didn't have a google account. (Somehow being the nana of those beautiful and extremely smart children and using "anonymous" to post comments just seems...well...wrong.) I opened an account, one thing led to another and here I am.

I chose "Coffee On the Deck" because that's one of life's simple pleasures and I am completely into simple pleasures. Life on this earth is way too complicated, busy and crammed with stuff, and coffee on the deck always sounds good to me (unless it's 90 degrees outside, and then it's iced tea or lemonade on the deck). Besides, I do some of my best thinkin' there.

I am excited to see you have a blog! And you might be interested to know that the photo below will be featured in a scrapbook page soon to be published by Memory Makers magazine. Guess they liked that photo, too!
