a smile on my face

Today, yes, I had a big smile on my face when I noticed ..........A NEW FOLLOWER! horay, I am becoming a legitimate member of the blog society. A couple of days ago, I must have spent over an hour in what I would call "blog surfing", and went from one link to the other--and found two that I really felt I could enjoy. Its like being at the flea market, lots of stuff, requiring thorough, but fun, discriminating action to determine what might be WORTHY! There is SO MUCH out there!...at Willow manor I saw so many things that were similar to my interests; books, romanticism, ancestry, playing with words, art, nature..... and at Piano Posts, there was something about her writing, her photos, that went to my heart. So lets see where it all goes....

With the parenting of my lovely daughter Lily, my editing work, running of a household, and last but not least MY EXERCISING, I think I have enough to follow for the time being..............! oh and I can't forget this BLOG, working on my two guys of interest, Gibby and Sam. I just wish I knew more about Phebe Meeker (twin sis of the sitter Samuel, and my gt gt gt gt grandmother), who dared to get a divorce in the early 1800s in Philadelphia, after a FANCY WEDDING. What I would give, to have her diary....

Congrats on your new follower! it makes me think of something I heard from Goethe- "What sort of God would it be who only pushed from without?"
