A Quick Hello


We're packing for holidays to the West Coast to visit family.

Our little tree swallow nestlings emerged from the nest box and flew off
~ we wish them well!

It's pouring rain today:
I saw a little girl yesterday in bubblegum pink rubber boots.
I might have to get me a pair too!

 You're never far from my mind, even when I'm not here.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.


Posted today over at InScribe...
a post entitled Enough Readers


  1. Have a WONDERFUL trip. (I'm off to read "Enough Readers".)

  2. Brenda-

    I just read, "Enough Readers". I think I am going to print it out and keep it where I can see it for those "days" when I am wondering if I should continue to blog because I don't have too many readers! I love blogging and you are right, the people who are supposed to read it, will and I need not worry how "many". It is in God's hands. Thank you for the great post!! :)

  3. Have a safe and blessed trip!

  4. have a fun trip, we are in rainy seattle but it's suppose to be sunny!

  5. Thanks for keeping us informed.
    I have missed your words.

    When you are out west, stop by our place! (Seattle).

  6. I wish it was raining here. Can't remember the last time I saw something falling from the sky.

  7. You're post couldn't have come at a better time Brenda! I've been thinking lately that I would quit blogging because no one is reading anyhow. It's hard not to become envious when you see a blog with lots of readers and comments when they always post something silly like a picture of a little kid picking their nose and yet no one comments when you are trying to give some useful information or bare your soul. For my part I try to be supportive of other bloggers but sometimes I think that maybe I comment too often. However, if I've left comment after comment on a person's blog and they never reciprocate I assume that they do not care to have me as a reader. They don't have to comment on every post, but once in a while would be nice. Just to say, "Hey I enjoy reading your blog too. I appreciate your support." Maybe that's wrong, maybe it's jealousy, but that's how I feel about it. Got to keep reminding myself the reason I started blogging in the first place was to help others learn thrift. But still once in a while you need some validation so you know you aren't just talking to yourself. Well, have a nice trip!

  8. Have a lovely trip and just relax and have fun.

  9. Ohhh... thanks so much for leaving your footprints in my comment box. I'll be by to say hi on your own site soon.......

    I MISS you all... looking forward to getting back into blogging!

    Thanks for the good wishes for my trip. I went out shopping just a while a go... because I just didn't have a suitable thing to wear (heheh)

    And my toes are all pretty too for my new sandals....(we had a pedicure this morning)

    It's fun going on holidays, little or large ones.....

  10. Hi Brenda, have a wonderful trip and a safe journey! The pink rain boots sound adorable. I saw some the other day that were yellow with big bright roses! Unfortunately they didn't have my size. Have a fun and beautiful time and I look forward to hearing about your adventures when you get back. Delisa :)
