Bloggers, Dreams, and Outings

Well hello there. I hope this blog post finds you well.Last week we took some time off to enjoy the fall weather.

Each little outing we attempted started out with mishaps. I mean mishaps to the point where we almost gave up and said, forget it, let’s not do it.We plunged forward anyway, and each outing turned out perfect.For one of our outings we entered an enchanted forest. Or at least it felt that way.I wondered if talking critters and pixies might approach us at any moment.What does this have to do with bloggers and Dreams, like the title says?

Nothing. I’m changing subjects now.

Lately, I’ve found myself having dreams about my blogger friends. In one dream, I was at some sort of a bloggers convention. Anneli was there, and so was Angela.I remember asking Anneli (in the dream) if I was pronouncing her name correctly.

I also remember asking Angela how she was doing after having to say good by to her beloved Sunburst, the horse.

A few more of you were also there, but I couldn’t make out who was who. One seemed like she might’ve been Kate and the other Kathy.

This has happened before, dreaming about bloggers, and it tells me that you’ve all had a significant influence in my life, and I thank you.I may be scarce (or in and out) in the blogging world in the coming days. Hopefully I’m wrong, but I fear there are some tense days ahead. We’re going to need to take special care during the coming days.

Everyone stay safe and well.

Lost in a Blog Fog

palm fog wmThose of you who regularly visit my blog may have noticed a shuffle of different themes. I’ve been yearning for change and have been experimenting. Who knows, I may even go back to the original.

I just crossed my three year blog anniversary over Christmas. When I first started, I was shocked at how much I enjoyed it and became addicted! Over time, many of my wonderful blogging friends took breaks from the blog world (some left altogether). Even though I missed them, I blogged all the more. I rarely can pull myself away from typing out blog drafts and visiting other blogs. I mean, what if I miss something awesome?

Even though I experienced a taste of the fall on my visit back home a couple of weeks ago, where I live, I don’t get any change of seasons. So, I’m blessed to live those changes through my lovely blogger friends. Continue reading “Living Through Bloggers”
