* This 'n That on a Tuesday *

Good morning! Happy Belated Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends! I was sure I'd be able to post something yesterday, but time sped by. I hope everyone had a lovely day!

Every year, I look forward to our Thanksgiving in November. There's just something about that time of year: Aromas. Friends. Family. Pretty table settings. No commercialism! Just scrumptious food!

On October 6th or 7th, I received the Robert Brault calendar and note cards I ordered. They are just as beautiful or even more so than the posted photos. I haven't decided which note card to use first, or who to snail mail it to. I really like the size of the cards, too. They are 5x7, blank inside, and so there is plenty of room for writing. Most note cards are TINY and there's never enough space! So, I can honestly say I LOVE THEM. They are beautiful, inspiring and uplifting. And how cool is it to tell others that I am a Robert Brault Blog Buddy?! And so can you...hop on over and check them out. Both the calendar and note cards would make thoughtful gifts for any occasion.

I've come to the realization that I cannot keep up with all the delightful blogs I attempt to read and comment on. Therefore in an attempt to keep my sanity, I won't be leaving comments on any blogs, nor do I expect to receive comments from any of my readers. I hope everyone understands and won't be offended. By taking this action, plus my term ending December 31st as president of Saturday Writers, I hope to have the time, energy, and desire to WRITE.

  1. It's so understandable that you won't comment. I know it's hard to keep up and you have so many readers.

    Hope this frees you to stick to your deadlines.

    Take care Becky.

  3. Now, Becky, don't do anything rash! Ha, ha. Understand. But don't cancel all comments...just drop by and say hello ONCE in a while...I am having my own non-writing angst begin to stir this morning. Will deal with it soon I hope! And remember winter is coming...perfect time to generate writing when we are confined!!!

  4. Hi Becky. I love the header at the top of your blog! I quite understand about you saying that you won't be commenting. It really is time consuming trying to keep up with everybody, so well done you! Hope it works out for you, and good luck with your writing!

  5. I have long felt guilty for not getting around to comment on blogs very often. One could spend all day on nothing else, I think. Sorry to hear you're stepping down from Saturday Writers as prez, but I certainly understand that, too. Sometimes we just have to scale back. Hope everything works out for you!

  6. Well. Good to know it wasn't something I said! As an intermittent commenter myself, I understand.

  7. Hi everyone! Thanks and please know that I'm definitely not leaving the blogosphere....just taking a leave of absence on commenting. And if, once in a while, I read something that I just MUST comment on, (as Bookie suggested!) I certainly will. :D

    You're all so important to me and I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings by not being able to comment everywhere!

  8. What??? Well, I hope that you still believe in email, Chickie. :>)

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
