I read that statement the other day in Facebook, and it was with regards to blogging. This morning, it almost feels that way. Bringing up the «New Post» box here, without a plan … no idea what to write about. But then again … what the heck — I never promised anything about this blog except «small talk», and that’s what it is, so I guess I’m true to myself in that respect.
It feels so good to wake up because I’m rested instead of waking up to the alarm clock. After all these years of not working, I still think of it.
Speaking of ‘all these years’, I noticed that Flickr turns seven years today! Seven!!! I can’t believe how time flies! I signed up there 2005. Our cat McDuff will also turn 7 this year, but not until November 22. Gerry, my husband, tells me now this morning, that McDuff came up to us in bed last night. That’s very unusual. I was too deep asleep to even notice.
The squirrels in the park seem to have turned into picky eaters … they kept checking all this stuff out, but didn’t pick up any of it!
The blue jay picked up one french fry and then took off. The beauty of this bird never ceases to amaze me. What gorgeous design and colors!
About the DailyPost-project … Every day they send out topic suggestions. They are just that … suggestions. The ones that appeal to me, I save in my drafts folder and use them when I’m really stuck for ideas. OR, if I really feel like writing about it right away — like the other day, about being without the Internet.
Yesterday, I turned my books back in to the library, and was lucky enough to find another one by Nicholas Sparks. «The Choice». Last night, when I went into Goodreads to fill out the form, I started reading the reviews. Noticed that many people had written negative reviews about these books … that made me so surprised because I love them so much. Guess it surprised me that not all people think and react the same way as I do … LOL. Another thing that surprises me is that no one has made a plug-in for Goodreads here in WordPress. Normally there are plug-ins for anything you could imagine. I wish I could write code!
This gull was looking very majestic there on top of a snow pile, so I decided he should have his picture taken. I’ve read somewhere that birds don’t feel the cold the same way as we do … and I believe that to be true — otherwise those webby feet would be very frozen. I think it’s a Herring Gull.
Enough small talk for today! Happy Friday, everyone!
