Monday Mish Mash

Did ya hear the big news? Bloglines will be no more as of October 1. To say this set me into panic mode is an understatement. I spent all of Friday night transferring my links over to Google Reader, which I've heard is really good by the way. But as is par for the course with me and anything new in the computer department, it wasn't easy. There is always such a learning curve for me. I couldn't figure out how to get all my feeds transferred over. So guess what I spent Friday night doing? Transferring all the URL's over. One. at. a. time. All 66 of them. And of course after I'm done it all is when I find the button that says to import/export feeds. Sigh. That's my life.

So Saturday I figured for all that work I was going to get some kind of treat and went for my first pedicure ever. An exiting dayhome family gave me a gift certificate for one at the beginning of summer and I kept putting it off thinking I'd be greebled out by it. But guess what? I went and I loved it. It was so relaxing. I was going to take pictures but I thought I'd freak out the young lady giving me the pedicure and I didn't want her to think I was some weirdo. I mean, who takes pictures of one getting their feet done. But I know you bloggers get it? You do, right? Hellooo? At any rate, I think I'm spoiled now. Better start saving my sheckles so I can get one at the beginning of summer next year.

Saturday afternoon Youngest Girl had to pick something up at the Christian book store. I knew I should have stayed in the car. I even said I'd be waiting in the car. So how on earth did I up in the store? And once in the store, I looked. I tried so hard not to. But how can one not look? Two books and some kind of Caribbean coffee later, which was yummy, I exited the store giving myself what for for going into the store in the first place. Where was my discipline? Where was my rock solid "no" when I needed it? Sigh. I just can't help myself. I'm weak, oh so weak, when it comes to books. But now this and this are going to be on my Fall Into Reading list. And shhh, don't tell, but it does make me happy.

Sunday we actually bbq'd. Hard to believe but it's so. The weather this year has been so weird I have hardly used the bbq at all. Usually I use it at least 3 or 4 times a week in the summer. We just had burgers. But burgers made extra delicious with my very own homegrown tomatoes on them. Were they ever good. Something about homegrown tomatoes just makes my mouth water thinking about them. The tasteless ones in the store just don't compare.

So that about sums up my greatly exciting weekend. Nothing earth shattering here. But it was nice to just hang around without having to be somewhere continuously all weekend. I like those once in awhile.

How was your second last weekend of the summer?

Isn't it so sad to think our days of homegrown tomatoes are almost over? *sigh*

I tend to do things the hard way as well. Look at it this way, you're persistent and talk-oriented. Two pretty good attributes.

Warning: Pedicures are addicting.

You definitely needed a treat after moving all 66 of your URLs! I know what you mean about the photo dilemma. Do I take it and spend a half an hour explaining/justifying? Or just never mind and pick something easier? Glad you are stretching out summer tastes with a bbq burger and your fresh tomatoes.

;D ha! I thoroughly enjoyed this post as it sounds like you thoroughly enjoyed your weekend. (I've never had a pedicure done either, thinking I'd be weirded out.)

You should now be set up for a great week! Hope it's awesome.

I am not the norm, but pedicures are torture for me because I am so ticklish. I found a lady that doesn't hurt me so much.I am glad that you enjoyed yours

Danielle Leigh said...

66 URLs Suzanne?!?! Oh boy! I bet you were dog tired! Glad that you got a treat afterwards though. I've had one pedicure in my life and I loved it. I want another!

I'm glad you figured out that stuff you are talking about at the beginning of the post cuz it's all Greek to me :0)
Yippee for your first pedicure!
Enjoy those books...

I've never had a pedi either- for the same reasons! You've inspired me.

You have to be kidding me?! Bloglines is shutting down?! Seriously I have no idea what I'm going to use now because google reader doesn't seem to work on my computer, it freezes it. And I have 132 links I'll have to move somewhere. :(

The good news is that I read your blog before I lost all the links.

Tina Leigh said...

Good grief! I would say you had a great weekend! I would love to have one of those burgers right now!!

I hadn't heard that about Bloglines. I starting using Google Reader but still had my Bloglines account. Had to smile at finding the export button after already doing it manually -- that's something I would do!

I have never had a pedicure. I think I'd be really uncomfortable with someone handling my feet -- and they're a mess! But one of my sisters loves getting them.

That second books looks really good!

Casondra said...

Homegrown tomatoes are the best.

Pedicures are so relaxing!!!

Jerralea said...

Even though MY tomatoes didn't grow this year, I'm sad that I soon won't be able to get any at roadside stands. I so love them!

I'm technologically challenged so I feel your pain over Bloglines. Why is it that anything in life that works gets changed after you're used to it?

I don't get pedicures because it's hard for me to sit still long enough to go get it done!

Beck said...

I think we got your share of the hot summery weather! But we're paying for it now with a crazy cold snap. I turned the FURNACE on this morning!

A pedicure sounds wonderful. I'm glad you had fun!

Faith said...'re making my mouth water with writing about homegrown tomatoes. Mine weren't homegrown over the weekend but the farm across town grew them and sells them so that's what I had on my burger last nite!!
I had a good but busy weekend with entertaining a family from church...we had fun.....and no, I've never had a pedi.'s on my xmas wish list :)

I need to switch my bloglines stuff over to Google reader, too. I guess I better look for that button! The whole thing is apt to send me into a tailspin. I'm so bad with computers.

I LOVE pedicures. They are my one and only spa indulgence. I get a few each summer -- make them last as long as possible. A picture would have been great:)

Books are not such a bad vice to have;) There are worse things!
