According to the numbers, I lost more than half of my blog readers when Google Reader finished. Am I supposed to do something about this? I’m a little sad about it, but not too much because I’m not writing/blogging these days anyhow. This is the season when teachers rest their brains and give themselves permission to be dormant. At least this teacher does.
I think mostly in single words or lines these days.
color-coordination. So why doesn’t blue and green work?
silk ivy leaves
going barefoot all day every day
babies’ peach-skin cheeks
wild fuchsias in hedgerows
spicy nachos and cold Coke
breakfast in the sun
swimming in a wild sea cove
Most people, most of the time, are doing the best they can.

I still follow! I’m sure your closest friends still follow– surely, that’s what matters the most?
Yes, for sure, that’s what matters most!
I was given the warning that google reader would disappear in July, but for me it disappeared several months before that. So I switched to feedly, which I didn’t love at all at first. And somehow I still have blogs to add to my roll. I’ll add yours right away.
And you did not just say (out loud, even) chevron stripes are over-rated, did you??? 🙂 They certainly are everywhere! 🙂 I don’t own a single thing with the pattern, although I’ve used it on designing photo cards. It’s not really my thing either.
Thanks, Marylou! Chevron wouldn’t be my thing in normal times, but when it’s everywhere, I for sure won’t touch it. =)
I love wearing blue and green together!
Ah, good for you Amy, go for it! Next, you might try orange and red? 😉
I’m here too!
And I’m GLAD you’re here, Lisa!

I love reading your posts,Anita!
Thank you, Shanelle!
Glad you’re with me, Glori. =)
Good to hear from you again. I notice when you don’t write, but also know that right now you have plenty of legitimate reasons not to.
PS. I just met your sister and niece at FB 🙂
Lovely to hear from you too, Linda!
So much of what we fill our lives with is overrated and we forget our connections with the creation and Creator.
I agree! Thanks for stopping by here, Anita. =)
Oh, I read too! 🙂 I often randomly check some favorite blogs instead of subscribing, I am not sure if my reasons for that are even really logical. 🙂 And while sometimes I simply don’t comment for lack of time,so many times when I “check in” here I find myself so heart stirred that I just simply don’t know what to say… Just bless your heart!
awww, thanks, Sherilyn!
In some computer issues we had a while back, we lost all our bookmarks, and I lost track of your blog. I’m back now, though, and gleefully anticipating hearing your “ramblings.” 🙂 It’s good for the soul to hear what’s moving in other hearts.
Nice to see you here, Kendra. =)
I miss your words when they don’t come.
It goes both ways, Shari. =)
Thanks, Anita! I needed this timely reminder to concentrate on the little joys in life, instead of the burdens that come!
Yup, Rosy, the joys ARE always there!
