This year I have been very conscious of every single day going by, more perhaps than in any other year of my life. Because of this Daily Giveaway, I have been counting up the days of giving, the days of blogging and even the number of people reading my blog! Now that I only have 60 days to go, I have definitely started a countdown. I am also trying to meet a deadline to get a book written. I now have 15 days left for that project (which means that the next 15 blogs might be pretty short!). I am also currently counting down the days to my birthday – in 11 days. I am hoping that amidst all this other counting down, I will still be able to enjoy that day, especially since I will turn 49 and commence the countdown of the last year of my forties.
