I had some questions in my comments yesterday. First, where am I? Well, we live on the border between Minnesota and Wisconsin. It's chilly here now, about 46* as I write this, but that tree that's turning red is, so far, the only one on the block. And yes, Ernie is my kitty. She is 22 years old and declining a bit, but she's still got some fight in her, so we're working it out. She's at my feet pretty much all the time when I'm home. She's my baby. I do not want to think about what will happen when I have to let her go.
Now, my new friend Dawn is wondering how I found her blog. I had to backtrack a bit to answer that. It looks like I followed a couple links, starting with a comment on Donna's blog, Just Me. From there I went to Midlife Mom, another blog I had not visited before. And that is where I found a link to Grandma Dawn.
I love reading blogs. I love "meeting" people that I would likely never have the opportunity to get to know in my day to day life. I love reading blogs written from places I have been, so I can revisit, in a way, my memories, and I love reading about places I have never been, so I can learn new things. What seems like an ordinary day to the writer is fascinating to me. I wish I had more time to explore the blog-o-sphere. I wish I could have you all over for lunch. I wish I had the means to visit all the wonderful places I read about in my cyber friends' pages. Most of all, I love the community spirit and the comments that readers take the time to leave. Thank you for visiting, and I hope to see you all again soon ~
