I really should blog more

I keep thinking of things to share here on the blog. Sometimes I take the lazy way out and put them on Facebook--it's not the same, but it's easier--and sometimes I just let the thoughts slip away.

We have lots of things going on around here. We've been getting various things done--none really exciting enough to be worth your reading time! But there is one very exciting thing that is worth sharing: Pua and her daughters will be visiting us next week!

We had a visit from Jeff this past weekend. Yes, I know, huge surprise! An old friend commented the other day that he suspected Jeff lived in our attic. Well, not quite, but we're very close to him, and he's only a LIRR train ride away, so we do see him a fair amount.

We had some nice weather this weekend, too. After Jeff headed home (not that I can't do this with him here), I even managed some time in the hammock, finishing a novel I was reading.

So things are pretty good around here. Work has been quite busy, but hey, I'm working, so, in this economy, no complaints! (Actually, I work at a great place, and I really can't complain, in any case!)

And, on that note, let's continue where we left off with the rugby photos...

Yes, he's got something shoved up his nose--it stops the bleeding!

Guy on another team warming up...but feel free to imagine your own caption. :)

And I think we'll end it there. That does it for the tournament, but I didn't share anywhere near all of the photos. If you want to see the whole set, go here.

Yeah I've been posting a bit more myself, hard as it is to keep doing it. LOL.

You don't blog more because you actually have a life. (Good photos again, btw).

Matt: For some reason, the feed from your blog isn't updating in Bloglines. It says I'm subscribed, but I didn't even realize you'd been posting. :(

Joey: Thank you! That makes me feel much better! I suppose there are things to keep me busy! :) (And thanks for the compliment on the photos, too!)

Pua; Bakin' and Tendin' Bar said...

You shouldn't give me permission to imagine. It's dangerous, and I might hurt myself.

I was just saying to David (Goblin's Dad) that I am so happy that he hasn't, like so many others, forsaken his blog for FB. I feel like so many friends have been lured away from their writing. Yes, FB is easy, addicting, and I find it a bit evil in that way. But nothing replaces the comfort of getting to know, REALLY know someone through their blog. It's like they've invited you into their living room, which is an honor. With FB, you get to watch their tv through their living room window.

I love that I've been welcomed to come in to yours and Marc's "home" (figuratively and literally) and you haven't just left me on the porch. And I love that we've gotten to know each other's lives through this medium. To me, the Blog Family will always be such an important part of my world and I can honestly say that this is, indeed, a loving family. Which is more than I can say for some of my in-laws. :)

Four more days Jess!

Pua : I didn't mean to imply that bloggers don't have lives, of course. I think it can be a good compliment to one's (already hopefully interesting) life. And it can be good for meeting people into similar interests. It all depends how it's used.
