Except today. I'm staying in because I've developed some fearsome blisters on my feet (walking far distances in new heals should always and at all cost be avoided in warm weather!) And at 91 (30c) degrees outside I do worry about heat stroke... (no, I am not a 19th century damsel - I just act like one.)
With the A/C blasting and my tummy full of watermelon (so refreshing!), I dragged myself online to be amused for a while by other, more impressive/disciplined/creative bloggers... I logged in to C'est LA vie first though, just in case... and I was delighted to find two darling notes from Kerri and Shari asking about my whereabouts. Now, this would be sweet under any circumstances, but I don't actually know Kerri or Shari. I mean, I know them in terms of their amazing talents, writing styles and aesthetics - they are fellow bloggers. But we haven't actually met. I was struck by how happy their comments made me, and I thought how wonderful it felt that they actually noticed my very impromptu absence from the blogosphere... As is so often the case, it all comes down to the importance of being acknowledged, doesn't it?
I immediately felt spurred to pick up where I left off and say thank you to all of you who take the time to check in here regularly, whether anonymously or not. It means a lot to me, and I will do my best to honor you lovely people by posting more frequently again.
I mean, summertime schmummertime, right? Beside, one can always cool down with some nice ice cream... What's your favourite flavour? I choose pistachio, every time.
Is it hot where you are?
