Isn't it great to check your blog and see comments? I want to say thank you to all of you who take the time to stop by and say hello. I love getting comments!

A couple of weeks ago I started using Google Reader. I think it's a great service, but can be overwhelming. I'll read all the blogs, leave comments on most of them, and find 42 new postings the next time I look. So, when you catch up, it's not for long. That's OK. It's a great way to see who's posted without having to go through your whole blogroll. It doesn't update instantly, but I'm OK with that too. I sometimes forget to add new blogs to the list, then wonder why I haven't read anything new from a particular person. I need to update that and the links on my blog.

I woke up briefly for Emily this morning then went back to bed till 8:00. That's LATE for me. I feel like I'm missing out on something when I get up late. So, I'm sitting here with a cup of decaf, the Today show on the telly, and the bird on my keyboard. I'd like to stay, but it's time to get busy.

It's like saying hello to all your neighbors, isn't it? I only wish I had such great neighbors living nearby. I'll have to check out google reader - sounds much easier.

Have a great day!

I was up at 7:22 AM to let my dog out but I didn't get to bed until 3:00am because the dog was barking. I am waiting for him to settle down so I can take a nap. I feel like I have a newborn baby in the house! Ugh!

Happy Wednesday.

Yes, comments are great. In fact, my entire self-worth is measured in how many comments I get. LOL

It started out really low and then climbed pretty fast for a while but has now leveled off and stopped growing. But, I'm okay with that. I think. ;-)

And, like Fiwa said, it's like taking a walk around the neighborhood and saying hello to everyone.

Google Reader - now there's an idea. Haven't tried it but may when I get a free minute.

When I began my blog I had no idea how much this world is like a neighborhood. I really enjoy different opinions and comments from 'neighbors' Thanks for letting me become a part of it.

I do that same thing, Cheryl, forgetting to update my blogroll with new friends. This morning when your comment came in, I thought, "Why don't I remember reading what she's written lately - you guessed it, not there... but it is NOW! I won't be this many days behind again. DUH, me stupid! :-)

I'm like everyone else and like comments too.
I am an early riser and get up at 6:30. By 8:00 I've walked over 4 of my 6 or so miles.

Hi Cheryl,
I don't even know how to make a blog role. ;-}
I am so helpless on this computer.
I don't even know how to figure out what happened to my photography program. I'm missing a key editing function. It just disappeared. And I'm a photographer. I swear my brain doesn't work half the time.
I'm just having a senior type of day for sure. I stopped at a convenience store on my bike today. Then couldn't get my bike restarted. It's a new bike. It turned out my kill switch switched off when I put my helmet on my mirror. I called a friend who lived near by. He drove over and figured it out right away. He always turned his bike off with it. I never do. I just changed back to my full face helmet. I never put my other helmet on the mirror.
I never thought of something so simple. He was nice enough to not laugh and gave me a hug instead. Just 2 blondes putting our heads together. His words. Some woman is going to be very lucky. He's only 27.
So what fun and embarrassing things have you done today?

I felt a ping of envy. I try to sleep late and just can't. For me, 6:30am is sleeping in!

I got pretty frustrated with Google Reader so I quit it.
