I wonder if any of my readers use a different type of reader to follow their favorite blogs. I was looking at Google Reader, but that’s the same company as Blogger and Blogger is my problem. When I clicked to see the blogs I follow in Google Reader, they were still not all there and the updates were shown randomly. Has anyone used Bloglines? There isn’t the complete information on the main page I’d hope for before I sign up for an account. I really want something similar to the Blogger friends list or Google Reader, just one that works. I welcome any suggestions by email or in the comments!
Whew! Okay. I’m over the grumblies.
My Dad is going to be here Thursday morning to work on that book shelf. That means I’ll have today and tomorrow to finish up in the bedroom. Shouldn’t be a problem. I have a few bags of things to move into the future woman cave from there too. David asked me if there was enough room to move with all those boxes. There will be. Actually with his desk not there, I still have more room than I had with 2 desks. Add to that, a lot of the stuff is to sort and either shred or put in the good will box. Plus once things are properly organized, they take up so much less space.
When Pop is here, I’ll get to let him try my first batch of minestrone. David brought up one of the larger bowls from the freezer. It’s thawing in the fridge now. I hope Pop can work his artisan miracles and save the shelving unit. They aren’t terribly expensive kits, but expensive enough that I’d much rather not have to add that to my shopping list!
I don’t get a lot of time to blog or read on the weekends, but I do some. I did a post on Sunday that, according to Blogger’s stats has only been read once! I think it’s an important post, way more important than the Super Bowl, mugs, barns or vintage things. If you have an extra click, please read “Lend a Helping Paw.” It’s not trying to sell anything. It’s about Paws and Whickers Cat Shelter and a sweet little feline girl we are sponsoring.
Bissett at Paws and Whiskers
Isn’t she the prettiest thing? We sponsored Bissett when we visited Paws Saturday, which brought her adoption fee way down. Paws is our local cat shelter and we are supporters and fans of the shelter. How could we not be? That’s where our Carla came from and likely where Jo or Joe Morgan will come from as well. I say likely because Kaline was not a shelter cat, she was a feral kitten who was too young to be without her mother, but she was without a mother. We firmly believe in rescues as our pets, usually from a shelter, but if we find one that needs us, we’ll rescue it ourselves.
You can read some more about Bissett and see a couple more photos of this calico beauty through the link, or just go back a few posts. If you are even considering adding a new furbaby to your family, really consider adopting a rescued cat or dog. Shelters are so crowded in a rough economy and rescued animals are the most loving and faithful animals you’ll ever give a piece of your heart to!
Barn Charm –
Yesterday morning, David and I went out to take advantage of the sunny blue skies and photograph some trains. Of course for me, it’s photographing trains, water towers, post offices, barns and anything else that strikes my fancy!
I was totally torn about going because I had laundry to fold or hang and I’m in the middle of the White Tornado Project in the bedroom, so I’m dusting and organizing everything, even dusting the ceiling! I’ve also found half the missing socks under the bed!
I’m glad I went! David had some stuff he needed to go back to the house for at midday, so I stayed home for the afternoon. I got a couple trains, my barn for this week and still got clothes hung up and some dusting done. It was a productive day after all!
This barn can be seen greeting drivers on the I-75 in Wood County.
It’s in Dunbridge, Ohio. My thought is that Joe and Gertie are the owners of the barn, saying his to everyone who passes. We pulled over on the ramp for exit 187 to get this shot.
