In Season, or Writing for the Sake of Writing

I'm not even going to look at the date of my last post, but I know it`s been far too long since I`ve written. I know, though, that I should `just write,`and so am doing just that -- am going to write about nothing.

In addition to being willing to write about nothing and post it, I also needed to be willing to let some other much-needed tasks slide. And so I`ll confess a little secret: right now, while both babies are sleeping, I am choosing to write this instead of tackling the to-do list below:
  • take a nap myself
  • do the dishes
  • clean the bathroom
  • put away scattered toys
  • get dressed and brush my hair
  • brush my teeth (yikes!)
  • exercise
So here is my post about nothing:

At the moment, I am enjoying the wide variety of delicious, fresh fruit in season here in Turkey. At this very moment, I have in my home bananas, watermelon, some other kind of melon (the oval yellow one with little flecks on its outside), raspberries, strawberries, purple plums, peaches, the cutest mini pears, and some kiwi.

And because I believe in either doing something fully or not at all, I`m even going to take a photo for this post.

p.s. I`d like to write about the Sisli Organic Farmer`s Market we went to yesterday ... Am putting this out there in the hopes that I`ll be more likely to actually write that post in an effort to avoid the embarrassment of not following through.


  1. Good for you, Cecile, for writing anything at all. I'm sure you're very busy with your two little boys, especially as one is still so very new.
    I was hoping, I confess, for a photo of the babies, but, meanwhile, the little pears are adorable. I grew up in the Okanagan Valley, but have never seen mini pears before.

  2. Welcome back!
    Congratulations on new baby!!
    FYI, it is just great to hear about the "nothings" of your life. Because they aren't really nothing...they are the ebb and flow of day to day living that make our lives tick. They are different for everyone and, somehow, interesting to each other.
    So, keep those "nothings" coming :)

  3. This is a great post. Write more. ;)
