OK, just kidding.
But it seems that somewhere along the line I missed the memo that October is the official “31 Days to/of…” month.
I won’t be leading one. Since I sometimes completely forget I have a blog, I would probably not be qualified. The spirit is willing, but I lack the follow through. I’m pretty proud that I got my Taming the Dragons series done! If I were to lead one, it would be 31 Days of Waldorf-Inspired Living, and it would be awesome.
Anyway, if you’d like to jump on the 31 Days train, here are some you might want to try. You can see a more complete list over at Nesting Place, which is where the original challenge was issued. At last check, there were 1,029 31-day posts. That’s 31,899 days. It would take you a little over 87 years to do them all, so here are 5 to get you started.
Kara at Simple Kids is leading 31 Days of Unplugged Play.
It seems, at times, like play and childhood are becoming obsolete. We live in such a hurry-up world that it can be easy to forget that life doesn’t have to be that fast-paced and play doesn’t require batteries or the endorsement of a television character. This month I invite you and your kids to slow down and reconnect with simple play. It is time to get back to basics and have a little fun doing so!
31 Days of Crazy Joy from Ann Voskamp over at A Holy Experience
Joy, it’s always a function of gratitude — and gratitude is always a function of perspective.
If we are going to change our lives, what we’re going to have to change is the way we see.
And the woman at the stove and the man in the workboots and all us tired and weary and worn, we can look up and see 31 days coming.
See October coming up the road like a blaze —
like this torch looking to light joy.

31 Days of Professional Homemaking at Domestic Bliss
This series is meant to encourage you to take your job as a homemaker more seriously. After all, if you don’t see the value in it and you treat it with little to no respect, how can you expect others to do so? A second purpose of the next 31 days is to provide you with practical tips for running your home more effectively.
31 Days of Sewing School at Simple Homemade
So this month, you will get a dose of Sewing School each day.
