Well here we are. It’s Friday and for the second week in a row I have not collected any wonderful quotes to post here. I also have several things about which I want to post my fifty cents worth (I think a lot of my opinions. Anything I say is going to be worth way more than two cents.) but I feel “real life” calling me, demanding that I finish the blouse I’m working on, and the jacket I stopped working on to work on the blouse, and work on the current quilt which I feel that I should have finished two or three weeks ago, and finish cutting the pieces for the next quilt, and do some laundry, and start clearing out the kitchen cabinets, and get together some stuff and take it to Goodwill, and finish reading the book I borrowed from Number One Son.
I did make time to visit a few of my favorite blogs yesterday and found a couple more interesting blogs via their comments. First was St. Grendel. It has an interesting mix of topics, leaning a bit toward geekiness, but what really let me know right away that it would be a keeper is the little Browncoat banner at the top of the sidebar. Sorry, I’ve forgotten where I found this one. I’m thinking it was at Dustbury but I’m not 100 percent sure.
And then there’s Bani’s Books which is about books of course. There are several books in her masthead picture that I have read. I am reminded that I need to read more by Bill Bryson. I found Bani in the comments at A Dress A Day.
Finding and linking those two makes me think about the current state of this blog. Right now I have a feeling similar to when the house is seriously a mess (more of a mess than usual; shut up) and I’m worried that someone might drop by unexpectedly. (That never really happens to me (people dropping by that is) so that part is purely theoretical but everyone knows what I mean.) I look at the blog and think, “If this was someone else’s blog and I was visiting it for the first time would I come back again?” and I have to say I’m not sure. I mean it’s not bad but it hasn’t been especially interesting lately. That’s what happens when you suddenly find yourself with “a life”. It’s not easy to maintain “a life” and a blog at the same time. But don’t go away. I promise I will be interesting (or at least mildly entertaining) again soon.
