A cool crisp blather...

We had our first really cool (cold?) night last evening. I had the front door open waiting for my friend to get safely into her car and my daughter commented that she could smell the cold. Pretty refreshing, and such a nice change from the humid stuffiness of the past few days.

I wasted some time on Facebook this morning. I really don't "get it" when it comes to stuff like that. Do I really want to know what everyone is doing at any particular moment? NO. I kind of feel the same way about Twitter, but like a lemming I accepted an invitation and signed up. When answering the standard prompt - What are you doing right now? I would honestly have to say "being brain-dead in front of the computer". I much prefer the land of blog...complete with photos, ideas, dreams, goals, and of course plain old blathering. There's always the option of reading if you want to, or if the subject offends, distresses, or otherwise disengages you, you can feel free to move on. It feels like my little corner of the www.

Yes, I agree with you about other forums on the www. It's just too much of a good thing. With blogging, one is much more free.

Glad that your weather is cooling some and feels more autumnal. It's quite cool and lovely here today. Lots of sun...that makes me the happiest.

I agree too. I don't share everyone's fondness for cell phones either. I am never without mine, but it used mostly for its two-way capabilities with my husband and sons. Unless I am on traveling and someone needs to reach me, I prefer to be called at home on the house line.

Your pie looks luscious!

I agree as well. Since I discovered blogging I have not been on facebook...forget to check email..forget to read my magazines. It's definitely my corner of the world as well...all things good!

I have to agree with you also.
I have a ton of friends trying to get me to join this or that.
I love that your daughter said she could smell the cold.I'm always tying to teach my daughters how to notice things such as that.

I have to agree with you also. I'm not too much of a fan of MySpace or twitter or stuff like that! I heart blogland! :O)
That photo is darling. Did you paint that?

I love the smell of cool fresh air. It feels so good against my skin.

I've never been on Facebook. I guess I lead a sheltered life. ;-)

I agree that blogland is enough for me. I can't get the hang of all the other stuff, too much wasted time. Love the new look by the way.

Hi Teresa :)

Isn't the crisp air wonderful?

I was asked to be on Twitter too and I just don't get it at all. I love blogging much more :)
