I'm having a heck of a time keeping up with blogs these days. My own and everyone else's. Is anyone else having a hard time switching over from Bloglines to Google Reader? I'm just not used to the format and I'm so far behind on reading all of my favorite blogs. I've already clicked "all read" once, just to get a fresh start. I'm so not good at change!
I spent two days this week fall cleaning my house. Does it still count as the same fall cleaning if you do two days in early September and two days in October? These are the things I ponder.
A very dear friend has learned that her new baby will be arriving from China in a few weeks!! My sis-in-law and I are kicking into high gear to give her a shower. Hence, the cleaning today and yesterday. The shower will be held at my house in two weeks. I haven't had or been to a baby shower in . . . I can't remember how long.
Next week, I'm going on a trip with my son to Arizona. He's playing in a baseball tournament. I get to enjoy the sun for four days. I can't wait!
I started Christmas shopping already.
Did you know that pine cones are edible (sorry, don't know where that came from.) But, did you know that the world has stopped making "regular" light bulbs??? I just learned this at supper the other night. My husband and my kids all knew. Why did no one tell me this? I don't like the curly ones -- yes, I know they're "green" -- and I will need to hurry and stock up on the others before they're all gone. Why am I the last to know these things?
This is how I get motivated to clean my house. I text my brother and say, "do you want to have coffee today?" and he texts back, "yes, how 'bout later." Which is all part of my plan. So, I clean all day, looking forward to that cup of coffee (which I will ask him to pick up at the coffee shop and bring over, because I'm not too proud, and then I don't have to ask because he says, "how about if I stop and pick up a couple of mochas?" Ahhh, Yes!), which he does, and we sit on my back porch, which is perfectly cool and lovely on this fall day, and talk for an hour.
I started a photo blog. It's called Photo A Day. Technically, it should be "Photo Every Few Days", but that would sound weird.
But not any weirder than this post.
