Checking out cyberspace friends this morning, as I try to do every morning, and I sit amazed at how much time some of them seem to have to spend on their computers. Some folks blog daily, with tons of pictures – when do they find time to take all those pictures, and then sit down to write about the experience and load the pictures and have it all make sense to the readers?
Then there’s Facebook – an amazingly wonderful way to keep up with daily, and sometimes hour-to-hour activities of all those friends and family that I don’t get to visit with face-to-face. But – hour-to-hour, and sometimes even more??? I know it only takes a minute to enter a quick status, but where do they fit it in and everything else that they’re sharing they’re doing every day?
I guess what’s most amazing to me is that they all seem to accomplish the every-day – housework, cooking meals, jobs, visiting friends and family whether over meals or coffees or at special events. And then there’s the quilters and crafters, who pump out project after project with seeming ease. And some of them have young families – children who need to get to activities, and have help with homework, and schools that need parents to help.
It is all most amazing to me. Each blog I do takes about an hour – maybe I spend just too much time thinking about what I’m saying and how to say it just right and making sure that spelling and grammar and layout and….. Well I’m sure you get the picture.
But talking about pictures – I only wanted to share with you all this morning, the one little project that I completed this week.
Last week, I announced a give-away, but I didn’t tell you all what the give-away was to be – mostly because I hadn’t completely decided. So this is some of what the winner will be getting: in honor of the recent Olympics, and because I AM CANADIAN – a pair of placemats in Canada’s colors, red and white; also a pair of pillowcases made just for you in your favorite color; and a few other goodies. So to get in on the draw – just comment and tell me your favorite color – draw date is coming March 14!
We’re bottling wine today, then out to visit some friends, then celebrating our DIL’s birthday this evening – should fill up the rest of the day.
Have a wonderful day everyone – back again soon, I hope!
