When I was younger, so much more younger than I am today, I used to love the TV schedules. I’d know instantly what day it was by what was on the TV at that time. In the evenings, of course, because the rest of the day was spent either at school or doing whatever homework was issued. I remember Charlie’s Angels being on on a Monday, The Bionic Woman on Tuesdays, I don’t think anything was on on Wednesdays, but it must’ve been. Probably a documentary or something, which I wasn’t interested in back then. The Six Million Dollar Man was on Thursdays and Mind Your Language and Space:1999 on Fridays. And then it was the weekend.

Obviously, that schedule I mentioned up there is how I remember it now. Some of those shows may have been years apart from each other, but in my mind’s eye that is how the schedules ran.

I’m making a few changes as to how this blog works. Yes, I’m always making changes, I know, but I’m making some more now. Well, I have to, now that I’ve incorporated Friday into the weekend.

I’m having (drum roll, please!) a schedule! (Not entirely a surprise, I suppose, all things considered!)

This schedule begins on Monday. So, as they say on TV, ‘Coming Up, on Beyond the Sphere’…

Monday – Short Poetry. Quick glances of life, written in a quirky and totally confusing way.

Tuesday – Creative Paradise. Yes, I’m getting creative once again. Watercolours may be involved. ATCs. Digital art. And possibly some clay modelling. I nearly fainted typing that, but there – it’s done now. Whether I get around to it is another thing. We shall see.

Wednesday – Anything Goes! Wednesday is the day that replaces what the rest of the blog has done since the very beginning. Anything and everything will appear on Wednesday… which may also include nothing, but hopefully not. Having a schedule should reduce the nothings!

Thursday – The Superhero Diaries. Yes, our old friends in the Elite Force of Britain, and their friends and enemies, return for their biggest and most action packed series to date! We need some action and adventure in the week, and this is an excellent way to launch into the weekend!

Friday – The Letters To The Universe. Yes, the Letters have been extended! Originally they were the launch for the weekend, now they are well and truly part of it!

Saturday – Six Word Saturday. Yes, this feature continues. Saturdays wouldn’t be the same without it.

Sunday – One Word Sunday. A photo challenge based on a word for the day. Also on Sunday, an extra post may appear for the Sunday Whirl, a weekly Wordle challenge where a piece is written including twelve pre-determined words. This feature will run on Monday if not Sunday.

As usual around these here parts (and very much like the Mansion!) nothing is set in stone. This is a very fluid blog, as I am a very fluid person. Things may run into each other, special challenges may crop up hither and thither, I may need to share an urgent photo on a Tuesday. As and when is what I always say, only now it’s as and when with an added schedule. There may be extra posts. There may be cliffhangers. And I’m even toying with the idea of introducing Guest Posts!

See? Things are a changin’.

I’m looking forward to them.

Have a fabulous Saturday and rest of the weekend! And don’t have nightmares…

…hehehe!

  1. Well Tom, that last image pretty much guarantees nightmares! Schedules are meant to be broken – in my world anyway!

  6. Could it be you are making life easier for yourself by giving it a schedule rather than facing the angst of just allowing what will be to be? Just a thought. Whatever you do will be enjoyable to all. I seem to be finding for myself right now that I must face the discomforts in life and the often chaotic emotions that go along with them rather than control them, be it by avoidance or schedules or standing firm to a certain way of doing things. It’s that free floating in space without a tether that is so unsettling….It’s the quiet spaces within that can throw us off and so we fill the void with something else rather than sitting quietly and experiencing what is going on….I am by no means saying you shouldn’t have schedules TL, I am just putting forth another perspective to consider…Either way I’ll be back….Happy weekend! VK 🙂

    1. I am trying to make things easier for myself, VK, but only so I can manage to read more posts and comment / reply. At the moment, in this chaotic vortex I’m in, I’m all over the place, so just need a little structure. I can only see how it goes. The the chaos may return…

  7. Discipline is a good thing. Or at least that’s what My Beloved Sandra always says just before, um….well, never mind about ~that~. Looking forward to those clay figures, Tom! No shirking allowed.

    1. No shirking, Ron., but I do need to get started in that area first. We shall see what creations come forth from that little exercise! 😀

  11. It’s your blog and if you can’t change things around, what can you do! ;D
    I remember those TV shows and how much we used to look forward to them. I’d add Dr Who to the list – that was a Saturday night must.

    1. Oh yes! Doctor Who. Back in the day, it used to also be on on a Tuesday and Thursday. Thanks for the reminder, Elaine.
