Whats in my Drafts Folder???

After a post from a friend and then a chat on the phone about how many posts are in her drafts I told her how many I thought I had in my own folder, around 150.

Needless to say when I later went to check my own folder I found 453.
Yes that  certainly is a lot of thoughts floating around in there.
If I get an idea I usually try to put it down so I can concentrate on other things and so I don't forget what it was I wanted to share.

So I just thought I would have a look at what was in that folder  (well not all of them)  and perhaps see what themes were common among them.

Here is a list of the latest 15 -
*The Lambs and how they have grown- life of the lambs from when thy first came till now
*It's all in the Living- family life random shots over a period of time
*Mud Kitchen- another update of uses of this

* Does Your Blog Reflect You- about how I try to make my blog be a mirror of how I really am and how I live my life,.
* My Waring Passions- books, craft, blogging, family life and how I don't always balance these
* The Story of a Home- about our house in Tassie, how we built it and how it was so hard to leave behind. It contained so much of us
* Our Learning Style and Books that have influenced our HS Journey- well a bit about both
* Cultured Foods- our journey into Lacto fermentation
* Where are the Skills of our Young People?- a look at basic manners and how often young adults and 'teens' ( I hate that word) seem to lack them
* How Images and what they mean to me- how I am drawn to certain images and why

Well that is some of the drafts in my folder.
I'm not sure about any real reoccurring themes but I do think that I cover a variety of topics on and off.
I have noticed that some of the ones I have were ones that were published but I had a double copy saved for some reason.
Anyway perhaps I may get to some of these posts or others like them soon and then again maybe not- I might just add to the folder instead with other thoughts that are  begging to be released. :)

I would love to know what you have in your Drafts Folder if you care to share!!!

Blessings to you and your homes,

I've been thinking more about draft folders since our conversation and since I had such a response to my question. Considering issuing a linky post challenge to a) share what's in your drafts folder (which you've just done) with b)a commitment to reduce drafts by half by the end of Nov or Dec (wouldn't expect yours to reduce by half) this reduction would either be deleting or publishing. Then another linky post at the end of the month chosen to link back to what you've published from drafts and discuss what you deleted.
