Going "friends" only

This has been something I've been mulling over for a while. If you are a friend but don't have an LJ account, then you won't be able to read my entries. If you would like to keep reading them, get an account!!! heehee

If I know you and you have an LJ account and don't have you on my friends list, but you're keeping up with my journal, then let me know so I can add you to my friends list.

If I don't know you and you want to be on my friends list, well, let me know and I'll have to think it over. :)

I just did a quick trim to my list. Mostly people that never post, stream only twitter feeds, that never comment or that don't use their LJs anymore.

If I clicked on your name by accident, please let me know.

quote for today

"It is a manifestation of man's fallenness to impose his own sense of propriety on other people, seeking mass conformity to his own preferences and adding insult to it by declaring these prejudices and preferences to be nothing less than the will of God."

quote for today

"A Life of Childlike Vulnerability"

Self-righteous judgment of others
is based on fear and ignorance.

When we have felt the embrace of God’s love
we are no longer unwilling to embrace others.
When we are filled with God’s boundless love,
we have no other choice
but to be endless mercy to all.
Cloaked in God’s protective and nourishing love,
we are free to live a life of childlike vulnerability.

-Gerry Straub

I've done a trim......

I've realized more and more how limited my time is and that also, for the sake of self-preservation, I need to do this.

I really despise public trim notices, but it all goes back to that time thing. Some of the people I've trimmed probably won't even notice because they never log in, comment or even post. Some, we've grown apart or we didn't really have a connection.

I won't be making any public posts, as for the sake of self-preservation, I keep my innermost self guarded with those closest to me.

I do share a few personal things here and there on my stamping blog (, so people can always find me there if they need to.

Wishing you the best.....

I did a little bit of tweaking to my friends list. Many of the people I took off were people that no longer use their LJs or log in, and those that I've just grown apart's nothing personal. We just haven't commented or read each other's LJs in ages, it seems.

This is a shameless plug for my mother's new blog.

Spatulas, Corkscrews & Suitcases

She's got lots of great recipes to share, wine reviews, cook book reviews and travel reviews.

There's a couple articles up right now, but she also writes for Suite101 and has links on there to her other articles. :)

She's an amazing writer and chef and has a lot to offer. Make sure you bookmark her site and check back often. ;)

Bella's camping trip

We're back and Bella had a wonderful time while we were out camping.

We made sure to pack her in tight into my backpack so that she was in a waterproof space while we paddled out to our campsite.

Bellwether comes to Vermont!

Bellwether has been traveling the world and has FINALLY arrived in Vermont. I've been listening to all the stories she has to tell of the things she's seen, the things she's done and all the places she's been to.

What shocked me, though, was listening to Bellwether telling me that she needed to go into the Operating Room. I told her I'd do what I could.

I went to make the first incision and I dropped my scalpel. Oops! )
