I did the meme.

Sometimes I admit I wish I could have tea with you and chat. But we live many miles apart.

I am as always really happy that you exist and that you have this blog.

Folding Laundry - it's always on the "to do" list!

Great to read this, and yes, worthy and good goals.

Oh, (*blush*) thanks Alana. I really meant it and I, as do others, really care about you.

Thanks for visiting my blog. That means a lot to me.
