A Time For Ketchup

There is a time to dance, and a time to sleep (to recover from the dance)
There is a time to bake, and a time to eat (cake).
There is a time to wrap, and a time to RRRRRIIP!!!! (presents)

And now that all that is behind me, it’s time to get caught up on the computer. I have spent the later part of the morning reading e-mail and some of my favorite blogs, and actually leaving some comments! Unfortunately, I am not as faithful a commentator as I like other people to be! But now that the busiest month of my year is over, and we are once again enjoying high speed internet, I’m trying to make that right! In my meanderings around the ‘neighborhood’ I found some delightful posts…

Here on Lauren’s blog – if this doesn’t make you smile (after you have swallowed any excess saliva to avoid drooling), you must be one of those robots that make word verification necessary!

Here on Natalie’s blog – I was honored that we were the subject of one of Natalie’s lovely musings, though it be a wee bit sad. Please join me in praying for her as she longs for a child to join their family.

Kor’s blog addressed anonymous commenters. If you want a good laugh, read this incredibly random post. Poor Ellie. Also, know that I feel the same about anonymous commentators. Unless you want me to activate the “blogger users only” filter for my commentators, please refrain from an over-use of anonymity. If the content of your comment reveals who you are,(as is the case with our beloved battered bob, who is forever giving our unsolicited advice under numerous aliases) then a humorous pseudonym is fine and, I might add, enjoyed.

While on that subject, thank you! to all of our new commentators! Welcome, Koragorn, Heidi, Miss Elizabeth, Jodes, Aunt Marylin, Sarah, AND Mr. G! Glad to have you!

And now I leave you, though you perhaps visited today in high hopes of seeing a report in pictures of my son’s first birthday, for today is one of a vanishing few lovely fall days, and I intend to take my said one-year-and-one-day-old son to the park!

P.S. said report is in progress and should be posted soon!

    How did you know we are all waiting for pictures of Jesse's first birthday! It was a beautiful day here in Washington too… perfect for fall, warm days, cool nights, just what the apples love.

    Hope you have a great day in the park with Jesse. Give him a hug and a kiss from me!!!

    Hi Heidi!
    It is so good to here from you!
    Hmmm, did I already say "hi" to you?
    Sorry if I did.

    Oh my, I feel so special now, my name is actually in print on a real blog!

    Hey don't laugh, I take pleasure in small things.

    Happy Birthday Jesse!

    Love, Heidi
