"Any nudibranchs?" "Don't see any yet."
Well, hi, people.
This morning my e-mail program showed a “please moderate” comment for this blog — you know, the blog I thought I had deleted when I’d deleted my newer one, La Dulse Vita.
The “please moderate” message was spam; but when I went into my dashboard, I noticed “Where are you?” messages from several of you. Months after my last posting.
I’ve also had personal e-mails from two of you. Months after my last posting.
And, well, like… I miss you guys too, eh?
To answer your first concern, Life is good right now. There’s so much to tell you about my home life, and so much I would tell you about my work life if it wasn’t all confidential stuff.
One big problem on this end is that I’ve been so busy with unplugged activities, I’ve been checking my computer only about once a week. (Or for you techies, maybe “Windows Vista” says it all.)
So this morning, I dropped in to Laugh in the Sun and read Alyson Hill’s merry burblings all the way back to July! Her July 24th posting outlines a contest, which I’ve decided to adapt into a Welcome Back Giveaway — thanks for this post’s inspiration, Alyson!
Then I popped over to The Right Blue and there was a nudibranch. It’s pronounced “nudie brank”. If you’re unfamiliar with these gorgeous underwater creatures, you can go here for a summary of The Right Blue’s articles and photos of them. I commented that a day without nudibranchs is like a day without sunshine — thanks for this post title’s inspiration, Bobbie!
Okay, now I must go play with the dogs, and locate and reinstall everyone’s names on my blogroll, and leave “I’m not dead after all” comments for my old pals on their blogs. But first, exclusive to the blogging community, here is…
THE GREAT CROCHET GIVEAWAY
If you are on my blogroll, please comment here before 2010, and I’ll send you a crocheted dishcloth before 2011! Up to three bloggers who aren’t already on my blogroll can enter the Giveaway as well. Once you’ve commented, we’ll get in touch by e-mail so I can have your address. Groovy? I’d love to hear from you.
