Loverly Thursday

Played with Sophie L. Hung with Alister for a bit. Cleaned while he slept. Did laundry. Fed animals. Watered plants. Did dishes. Updated iPod. Dinner at Larsen's.

Nice energetic day. Good-bye August. Happy New Year!

Farewell, Pluto

Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. Something missing? Nope. Didn't you hear? Pluto is no longer a planet. It's a block of ice.

Bye, bye Planet Pluto.

Orthodox Circle

I know this will sound like a shameless plug, but Orthodox Circle is great! I joined it when I was bored and I'll admit that I was skeptical at first. However, the site has turned out to be a breath of fresh air. There are a bunch of people I can relate to, communicate with, and share something with. An Orthodox MySpace - Brilliant!

Oh! And now I'm in a group where Bishop Joseph posts his "Thoughts of the Day." So cool. Check out the site.

    Where Have All the Bloggers Gone?

    When I first started blogging, it seemed that there was so much life on the blogosphere. It's dwindling, friends. I know several people who lurk on my blog but don't want to get involved in the blogosphere. When I first started blogging, there was Chance (as a commenter and blog-reader but not a blogger), Aaron, Peter, John, and Beniy. They've now all gone for their various reasons (I'm not saying they're bad reasons. They all have responsibilities.) . It's lonely here.

    Why have so many people left?

    Four days away from the heat

    And, yes, it was a nice break. The fam, some old friends, cousins, and the boyfriends all came along on a fun camping trip in the mountains. I'm glad to be back. Pictures are yet to come.
