Here we are at the beginning of 2015. I am not one to make New Year’s Resolutions. I know enough about me to know I will never follow through. So, my goal for this year is to continue on. To get up and continue with the things I know I should be doing and were doing in 2014 and to look for the new things I should be doing.
This blog is one thing I am sure about. Sure in the fact that I should and I want to do this. This thing called Blogging.
I absolutely love it when I hit the publish button and there it is for the world to see. It is such a great feeling of accomplishment. And I would be lying if I said the number of views do not matter or the number of likes or even comments do not mean a thing. Heck yes they do! To me. I am artistic and along with that comes a bit of the old fear of rejection and the I want to be noticed because I have something to say syndrome (note: I made up this syndrome. If there is such a thing then I am self-diagnosed – but I am a middle child).
I am thankful for the followers that I have. I’ve made some close friends over the last year or two. One of my goals in blogging is to meet more people. To meet people who want to hear my heart and who need to hear my heart.
We all have something to say. Finding it is a key. I started adding more photos, that I took this last year, to my blog and add little stories or words to go with them. I love to take photos. I noticed that I have new followers from a totally different genre who like photography. That is good for me because I love variety.
As I state in my About post, “I call this “Let’s Have Another Piece of Pie” because to me pie represents more than a piece of incredible sweetness, but a moment of bliss with people you love. It brings to me a type of peace that flows and flutters around a room of nostalgia and contemplative thoughts – even if I’m alone at the moment. Add a piece of good home-made pie to those moments and you’ve got a recipe for joy!”
That sums it up, sums me up. I’m on a journey of heart sharing and look so forward to another year of doing just that with who ever wants to join me.

The pie looks inviting. I am glad to have made your friendship Cate. You are a great person and thank you for sharing a piece of you here in blogosphere 😀
And I yours Semi! 😀
I definitely need to hear your heart and I’m so glad you’re on for the long haul! (p.s. when you do decide to come over here and visit, you should just be aware….pies are my specialty!)
Yay T! Im in for pie. And im in for a visit. What fun we would have. 😀
We want to keep hearing from you so I’m glad you are continuing. May you get many new followers, Cate. 😀
Thank you Levi. 😀
I must admit I was attracted to your post today by the delicious looking pie. I particularly loved the orange and gold maple leaves on the top. I am always attracted by those colours. And it looks to be packed with good stuff full to the brim. Can I ask what is in it?
All the best for your continuing on.
Thank you. It is traditional apple. The leaves i “painted” with colored egg yolk and baked them separate.
Mmm. Looks and sounds delicious! Julia
Thanks. It was really good. 😀

I think that is the best resolution ever!! 🙂
Thanks Paul. 🙂
I’m like you, Cate, where resolutions are concerned! I think I try to cram too much into too little and get frustrated and angry when I don’t get it done.
A friend of my Mom’ s once told Mom, after she’d been lamenting her lack of organization, that she thought Mom was a perfectionist at heart. She said it was easier for my Mom to throw her hands up in defeat and give up because she knew she never could, nor would she, ever meet her expectations. I’m beginning to think that’s me-I’m determined to break that cycle!
Praying the new year will be a great one for you.
Thank you so much! Many blessings to you on your new year.
You are welcome!
I’m glad you continuing to be you!! Look forward to all you have to say ahead Cate…m xoxo R
😀 ❤ Thank you Rhonda!
It looks TOO good to eat!!
Thank you! haha – we ate it…..
And you didn’t even save me a slice? 😳
Hi, I was wondering how your ukulele experience is going? My son bought one for my daughter for Christmas. She needs help with it so I decided to learn how to play it myself. It’s really fun. Within a couple of hours I was strumming along with my Beatles songbook. My fingertips are paying the price though! 🙂
Hi Sarah. Haha. Yes, the fingers. Good for you. I just love it. That little instrument makes me happy overtime I strum it. Am I great? NO! But good! Hahaha. It brings me such happiness.
Keep it up and enjoy it to the fullest. You may want to buy your own so you and your daughter can play together. 😀
youtube helps me a lot.
Yes, it’s such a fun instrument. To be perfectly honest my daughter doesn’t seem that interested in it, which is a shame. I haven’t given up on her yet though.
I’m working my way through the “Ukulele for Dummies” book. 🙂 It’s got me tuned and playing so it can’t be too bad. Thanks for the tip – my son uses YouTube for his uke too so I’ll have to pick his brains next time he’s home.
also – I just started following this blog: http://ukes4fun.org.uk/2015/01/13/sunday-ukes-next-one-earlier/
and they have – on the right column – a link for free downloads of uke songs – just did it – fun!
Great tip, I’ve followed them too now, thanks. 🙂
Love your writing style and photography. I’m following. Hopefully, we can share some pie. I’ll bring the coffee.
Awesome! Thank you so much – your words greatly encourage me. 😀
Cate, Thanks a lot for taking the time and reading me some days ago, I am a bit behind the assignments of blogging 101 but will definitely try to catch up as fast as possible! I am now visiting the neighbours, you caught me with your title, and then the explanation of what an other piece of pie means to you, I melted…
Will try to visit you frequently! thanks for the inspiration!
