This song came to mind as I started my day, considered all the could do and should do things and decided nope..today I am hopelessly devoted to you. You being my bloggers and some wordpress organizational things to do. So in order of priority 1) complete this daily post 2) read and respond to my comments (something I have been lax about in the past) 3) Enjoy the Reader aspect to read my ‘I follow list’ and comment 4) do some maintenance on my site especially blog roll as some there have now gone and many treasures are not listed at all. All in all a perfect day planned I say.
FITFS – following in the footsteps – First, before any of that I must pay homage to my practice of recognizing one of my fave bloggers who also works around themes (have I mentioned this is something I am seeking for moi?) Emily Cannell This amazing woman and her family moved to Japan sometime ago. I first got to know her at the beginning of my blogging career when her ‘Hey from Japan – We are being shaken and stirred here’ was Freshly Pressed. The woman knows how to report and without invoking whining and sniveling was able to give us a birds eye view – or an Emily ey’s view of what is going in her adopted home. She has been FP’d a number of times since – and for good reason. She is inspiring, hilarious, and talented.
**By the by – big news! Yesterday’s post was about Judith Baxter and her book review by author Zoe Sharp and how wonderful it was that Zoe had commented on Judith’s post. Well guess what!! Zoe commented on my post about Judith’s post about her!!! So now it would seem I have two – that’s 2 published authors as my new besties -Zoe Sharp and my bestie bestie Joss Burnell (whom you will hear more about…should it be whom?)!
***Now in looking back at my first two posts on Following in the footsteps… I just checked the links I put in to Judith and Jaime’s sites and it does not seemed to have worked. So I just tried it again and it worked….go figure.
Oh my am I going to ever get to the rest of today’s post? The air is cooler and less humid to day and I hope the weather conditions every where else lets up a bit. Some places too cold, some too hot, some too dry some too wet. I hope it all settles a bit for everyone.
We were lucky yesterday to have a pool here at the house and when DIL wanted to take G2 in he whined and cried until his foot hit the water and he bobbed along in this floatie vest thing and called. ‘Grandma, Grandma, look I decided to come in and I can swim!!’ Uh huh – just like a man!
Hope y’all have a good Saturday or Sunday – which ever day it is for you my friends.
