Friday Fragments, Episode #104
Welcome to Friday Fragments, where the little thoughts/observations/bits of nonsense found throughout the week finally find a home. It's the easiest, yet most satisfying post you'll write all week. Thanks for stopping by!
I Can't Blog is a new and very simple idea from Lislemen, of A Few Clowns Short. It's a fun blog that will have only one post. That's right--one post. The idea is that all the excitement will happen in the comments! He would really love it if you would stop by and say hi.
My son has grown into an intelligent young man! Here's what I heard him say to his girlfriend, in the kitchen last night (they were making something to eat): "Just let me do it my way--the "guy" way, that isn't necessarily the right way, but the way I want to do it." At least he's honest.
Mr.4444 said the sweetest thing the other day. He told me that he woke up around 5am, wide awake, his mind instantly launching into overdrive about work. He thought he might as well give in and get up, but then, he looked over and saw me, sleeping ever-so-peacefully, and a feeling of calm came over him. He snuggled up to me and was able to just embrace the extra tranquility and ride on a wave of peace, back to sleep. What a wonderful gift to be able to give him.
I've decided to feature three of my favorite Saturday Sampling posts each week, in my sidebar. I'd also be open to suggestions for how to "tag" other SS posts that you think are especially good, if you think that's a good idea. Maybe like this: If you especially love a SS post you read, sing its praises in the comments, and I will add a * to each title that receives more than one comment? IDK...just thinking
If you're the person I stole this divider thingy from, THANK YOU!! I LOVE IT!! And here's a little something for you: If you click here, you'll find out how to get rid of the borders of pics like this!
Inspired by Melisa, I created a page on Posterous for my favorite photos. I'm new at Posterous, so I don't understand the whole thing yet, but it's starting to dawn on me that it is a new blogging platform, like Wordpress, Blogger, etc. You can use Posterous to upload all kinds of files (photos, video, etc.) via a simple email. It's very nice, but I'll be staying right here to blog, thank you. I plan to only post my favorite, favorite photos, so I promise it will be worth your time to check it out! Melisa, too, is having a ball with her new foster "baby," so check her page out, too, if you want to see the object of Melisa's adoption dreams :)
Here's your chance to share your Friday Fragments. Link up, and then be kind enough to stop by some of the other Fragmenters' blogs to say hi! Have a great weekend!! [This linky is for FRIDAY FRAGMENTS only. Other links will be deleted, sorry.]
