I should be able to write my thoughts so easily just like I do in Multiply.  But I don’t.  I created this site a few days ago and I sit here, contemplating on the overall design, not exactly sure of what to do with it.  Good thing, it’s not a busy day today and in between chapters of Barack Obama’s book, Dreams of My Father, I toy with everything.  But I guess I am like a new homeowner to a vacation house, I came empty-handed, I’ve left everything I needed in my old place which I consider my home.

Maybe, like other people with second homes, I will bring some stuff a little at a time.  For now, let me just imagine where things would be, what to put here and there, until everything feels like it’s been there all along and when everything settles, I could stay longer.

    Hi Lou, thank you for identifying my mystery plants. I remember that Hydrangea was one of the plants I wanted. I’ll check my ornamental grass and see if there’s any life down there. Carol


  25. bebs1 says:

    Thank you. I was an avid gardener until I sold my house. I cannot garden anymore because I have moved into an apartment.


  26. mamacormier says:

    Hi Lou, I’ve always appreciated your dedication to following my blog. I have nominated your blog for the Shine On Award.

    More about this nomination is at http://mamacormier.wordpress.com/2013/05/26/thank-you-maia-2/
    If you choose to do forego this nomination I won’t be offended. I know how much time they take and your time is precious. Congratulations! Carol


  27. bebs1 says:

    Congratulations and you deserve it. Thank you for nominating me, but I don’t think I have 15 people to nominate. I don’t want to nominate the same people over and over again but I do appreciate it. I truly enjoy reading your blog.


  28. mamacormier says:

    I understand completely. It is getting more difficult to find 15 blogs that I haven’t already nominated and I feel the same about nominating the same people over and over again. I hope you might find someone new to follow from my list of nominees and I hope some of my followers will check out your blog.


  29. bebs1 says:

    Thank you for understanding and the encouragement Carol!
