Day 21 – Slice of Life Challenge – Joining the Party

I am not much of a party goer and not much of a joiner. I do love sitting with friends and chatting. I love having tea with people and learning from them. I am pushing past my party fears and joining the group over at – A Day in the Life


She sent out an invite for all to join.    Leigh Anne Eck’s invitation  The request is to bring 5 things – what would you bring?

(I was reading at AliceNine.Net when I found the party. )

So here is what I am packing to bring to the party

  1. My notebook and pen since these are all teachers and writers – I am guessing there will be lots of ideas and things to learn. I will need to write it all down.
  2. Bubbly water to share – I am off the stronger stuff to drink due to medications and I am working hard to stay away from all the sugar drinks.
  3. Mary Oliver’s most recent book Upstream – there are fun nature writings to share
  4. My phone – because it has a camera – it would be great to get photos of this wild and wonderful event. (also we could order in food if we needed!)
  5. A good pair of walking shoes – It is always my hope at a good party to find a few new friends who like to take long walks and talk just to get to know each other a bit more.


Here are a few other who have decided to join –

THANKS Leigh Anne for the invitation.  I’m delighted to add my name to your guest list.
Jennifer at Sweet Writing Life
Diane at Newtreemom
Loralee at This and That
Denise at Dare to Care
Linda (the original partier!) at Teacher Dance



Hope to see you over at the blog party!

    So glad you joined the party! Thanks for the mention of Mary Oliver’s book. And I’ll be sure to throw in my walking shoes, too.

    Leigh Anne’s party is the place to be and what a fun assortment of items that we all bring. I had to laugh at the second reason your phone might be needed. Should it ever be possible, we’d have a great time. Glad you put aside your party fears to join.

    I am not much of a partier either, but I think this one would be fun! I am so glad you participated! I like your thinking about ordering in food! Although there will be lots of chocolate! Thanks for being a guest at my party!

  6. Great list — it is fun to read what everyone is bringing.
