I noticed I have new followers and would like to thank them for stopping by and caring to read my posts.
Thank you, Laurie! Laurie is a new face-to-face friend. We met over horse poop; outside, in the paddock, picking up after horses. What an amazing world it is as we discovered how many things we have in common.
Mary is also a new follower. She bumped into me while chatting on the farmhouse porch ;-) Another blogger, Patrice at Everyday Rurality, has a weekly link-up where bloggers can respond to questions and link them to Patrice's site. Then, bloggers can read other's responses to the questions. It is almost like visiting one another. Mary writes Visits with Mary, and Waiting at the Gate.
Another new follower is Mimi Foxmorton. I love her name! Mimi is so inspirational. She is very artistic - something I aspire to be! She writes a number of blogs and shares so much beauty in them. One is called Sea Gypsy and another is called Collage Pirate. I'll create a bit of mystery here by suggesting you visit one of Mimi's sites and then travel to others that I haven't listed!
My latest follower is Alica. She pens Happily Married... to the Cows. I have a fascination with dairy cows, well, to be honest, I guess with all cows. Perhaps that fascination has its roots in my visits to my grandfather's ranch as a young girl, or maybe it is just that I've wondered how cows can lick their own noses! Whatever, I totally admire dairy farmers and the twice, daily work they do to bring us fresh milk and milk products! Alica also lives in Lancaster, PA and reports that she is from a long line of Mennonites. The Amish and the Mennonites also are a fascination of mine. I love nothing more than visiting Amish areas and talking with a few Amish I have gotten to know through my horses.
I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. It is time for me to get to work! I have so many things to do to get ready for the holidays! How about you? Are you feeling the stress already?!
