Bloggers are so cool!

I just did hand-to-hand combat with a broken lamp. Actually, it was the extension cord that was pfffttt (burn marks on the plug; not good). The battle involved a lot of crawling, sniffling, moving underbed boxes, sniffling, testing, getting up and down from the floor a dozen times (not easy when you need to lose about a hundred pounds) and nose blowing.

Oh, yeah, we won't mention the swearing.

Anyway, I got sweaty and dusty and irritated (don't you know I'm sick, stupid cord?) so, having achieved a victory I decided I'd earned a break. I sat down to read blogs, which is a pleasure. Jace is always good for a cheer-me-up and he didn't let me down, although I'm somewhat irritated that he passed on his cold (MO to CA. Viruses can travel that far, right?) Visiting MaryKathryn is like getting a hug; unfortunately, she has new cross-stitch goodies to temp. I will be strong. Linda's not quite up to speed yet and Missy must still be busy with the baby, but Stitcher S has posted some post-holiday updates, Nancy is quilting again and Sam has gone nuts with her knitting (whooo hooo, girl.) Chiloe hasn't updated yet (she's probably in the clink after her neighbor's dog pooped in front of her new home.)

And then the magic happened. I looked up and noticed I have a new follower. I'm so flattered that anyone would want to check in on my ramblings enough to be a follower. And, best of all, it's someone I haven't met yet. So Greenmare, thank you for visiting me in the stitchery. I had to pop over to your blog immediately and read away and found another kindred spirit. (I hope you don't mind if I read back through your archives!)

And by the way, if you really are engaged in a diet challenge, I'll join you! Let me know how to sign up!

I haven't been reading blogs as much lately as I was away from the computer for so long and then last week was horrendously exhausting. It's great to be back here.

I added my name to your 'followers', too! Delighted to be included in your post as well!
