….a challenging day overall…lots of company and one last meal with B and Az
Today’s assignment: follow five new topics in the Reader, and begin finding blogs (and bloggers) you love.
One way to increase readership is to follow other people’s blogs and make comments. Invariably they will come back to your blog to check you out. Today we are encouraged to branch out and investigate topics that we haven’t considered before. I’ve chosen the following five topics (some suggested by WordPress):
Stereotypes: Livicatherine and You’ve Got to be Kidding and Rural to Roaming
Flaneur: The English Department and Around a Red Table
Coffee Culture: Cody Delistraty and Just Add Attitude and Filter(ed)
Owls: My Eco-centric Life and Owl Moon (it’s amazing how many sites pop up when you type the word owl)
Humour: Singing Pigs and Life With the Top Down
Day 4 – The Daily Task
Today was a busy day with saying good-bye to our son and his fiancé. My friend, L came over to say hello and good-bye all at the same time and A and J came for an hour to say a final farewell. I knew that today would be a difficult day to tackle something new so I did what I said I would and that was finish reading the book The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone. Reviewers used words like, charming, delightful, hilarious, compelling, unforgettable, unique and clever. I guarantee that you won’t want to put it down.
It’s been snowing off and on today, but mostly on and right now it’s very wet and heavy. Unfortunately I didn’t get out for my daily walk. I’ll have to do double duty tomorrow. Here’s hoping for a safe and uneventful flight back to the Netherlands for both B and Az. I miss you already. Love, hugs and kisses. Mom
