I was trying to figure out that blog following thing. I had no trouble putting a widget for it on my sidebar, and no trouble clicking on the link on other people's blogs to follow their blogs. But I can't seem to figure out how to add blogs to my list of blogs I follow without that link. Actually, that's not strictly true. I've found the link for it, but I can't make it work! I've tried all the usual ways Jaws works links, but it wont work. *Sigh* Oh, well, it doesn't really matter. I just thought I'd mention it because I didn't want anyone who noticed I was only following certain blogs to think it was anything personal. It's not! I just can't seem to add blogs to the list without that link that's in the sidebar widget thingy.
It's cold today. At least the rain's stopped for a bit though. This is the closest to a sunny day we've had since I was well enough from my op to want to go outside. Funnily enough, when I was in hospital - and the weekend afterwards when I wouldn't have had the energy to go out if you paid me to go - it was beautiful and sunny. I swear it did that last time too! Maybe I have to be in hospital for the rest of the country to enjoy some sunshine? Hmmm... Well, if that's the case then forget it! I'm not going back in just so everyone else gets some sunshine! You can all just put up with the rain! LOL!
There's an oak tree almost half way along where I walk Kero. I never realised before, but I took Kero out for a walk this afternoon and stepped on something hard. So, I wanted to know what it was and bent down to investigate. Turned out it was an acorn. There were lots of them on the ground under a really big tree that appeared to have shed them. I picked up a couple and brought them home to have Kelly confirm my suspicions. He said I was right. I like being right. :)
Wonder where the squirrels are and why they aren't around collecting the nuts. Maybe the tree is too close to where people are for their liking? I mean, a lot of people use that path, and there are houses the opposite side of it to the tree. Or maybe the squirrels - like most of us humans - didn't want to go out in the rain we've been having? *Shrugs*
Kero likes acorns. He wanted to see what I was showing Kelly. I think he ate them. Is that normal for dogs? I know he eats other nuts (well, some kinds) so I'm not really worried.
Have you ever noticed how warm and inviting a home feels with incense sticks or cones burning in it? Especially when you come in from a walk on a chilly Autumn afternoon. Usually I'm already in the house when the incense is put on, so - although I notice it - I don't notice how inviting it makes the home feel. But today they'd not long gone on when I went out, so I came home to them nicely burning away. And it smelled really nice. Almost as inviting as when you come home on a cold Winter's evening and smell something delicious cooking.
(Don't worry, I didn't leave them burning in an empty flat... Kelly was home and able to keep an eye on them).
Why is it that every time you get all the dishes up to date someone wants a cuppa? Or, you just get the washing caught up and someone has a bath and/or changes their clothes! Is it a law or something?
I was just thinking...
*Waits for the groans and whispers of, "Uh-Oh!" to die out*
People often say, "A penny for your thoughts," but nobody ever pays up. I mean, plenty of times people have said that to me, and I'm still waiting for my pennies! Then there's the people who say they're putting their two cents worth in... They don't pay up either! We need a thought jar. You know? Like some people have a swear jar, except you put pennies in it either if you said, "a penny for your thoughts," or if you said you were putting your two cents in.
If everyone's body temperature is the same, why do some people feel the cold more than others? I mean, you'd think if one person's body temperature was dropping then another person's would too, right? I understand the way it works if one person has more body fat than the other, but what about people who are the same build?
OK, I think that's enough of my nonsense for one evening. Before I publish this though, I'd just like to say, "happy birthday," to AliceKay, since - if I'm not very much mistaken - today is her birthday. :)
Enjoy whatever's left of your day. Stay safe, get well soon, and all those other things that people say to you that you intend - or don't intend, as the case may be - to do anyway, but they just "have to" be said. ;)
