Do you ever have trouble communicating?

  1. We are “sinking” too…sinking about how most of our garden washed down into the Tamar River and how the heck we are going to replace all of that soil 😉

    • I ‘sink’ about everything, unfortunately . . . makes for an interesting life, but not necessarily an easy one. I saw “Serenity” twice in the past three weeks and was delighted to see my old favourite quote again: pilot says something about “this landing is going to get pretty interesting” The captain says, “define ‘interesting’ “. Pilot: “Oh God, Oh God, we’re all going to die!” Shiny!

    • I saw your post about the driveway; didn’t realize the garden was swept away, too. Sorry to hear that and hope it’s not too hard to rebuild. We’ve had those flash storms here, too, with major flooding in many basements, so I know how it can be.

    • Nope, you’re not miscommunicating; I use twitter and facebook. Surprised a 20 yr old the other day when I referred to ‘trolling’ . . . 😉

      I was ROFL, too! Gotta love language!

  2. Linee, thanks for checking out my blog and following! When do you get together to do sewing and other creative stuff? I like the process of creating, not necessarily the product that I create!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I look forward to reading your comments. ~ Linne
