A Bloggy Kind of Day

While this blog has been on the island, we've had a very busy week catching up with housework, preparations for school, and seeing friends who are here from out of town. On Friday the girls and I spent the afternoon with Simmy who writes Echoes of a Dream from England.


When we met last year her husband, Tom, and the boys tried to teach us how to play Settlers of Catan. We didn't really have time to get it so this year we sat on the side of a beautiful little lake and chatted, played the game, swam, and had a nice visit.

Simmy, Tom, and I had a grand time chatting about blogging, crafting, all things Waldorf, and the seasons our lives are moving into right now. Our children are growing older bringing new schooling issues and needs while we, too, are changing. It was an interesting conversation.

We've always enjoyed talking about books and....look what she brought me....er....us!!! A huge stack of yummy books from England. We have an entire winter's stack of Enid Blyton and other favorites of her family.

I love meeting other bloggers. After all the conversations and glimpses via the blog, there is such a nice connection when meeting in person. Now I wish I could just fly to....Tasmania, New Zealand, Australia, Belgium or take a little bloggy driving tour to Massachusetts, Connecticut, or Pennsylvania.

Oh yes! Come for a visit anytime, we are ONLY a five hour jaunt away...I loved all the posts about the island and how you spent your time, I wouldn't mind cocktail hour with the sound of waves crashing in the background and children exploring on the island. That's the life.

I am going to look for that game!

I MET my first "blogging buddy" this past summer while we were in California. It was so much fun to actually MEET a cyber-friend in real life!

I think about how much fun it would be to meet different people I meet through blogging to. I have met a couple of people who live in my own hometown whom I met through blogging, which has been great. How fun for you to be able to get together with your friends from England!

I wish I could fly to your house too! I just missed meeting two far-flung (Australia and Germany) blog friends this autumn in New York.

I was so sad to see she was ending her blog, although I understand completely. I too think it would be fun to meet some of my favorite bloggers "in real life"...especially if it meant some travel to new and exciting places!!

Anytime you are near NC, let me know!

Don't get me wrong--there are many more of you I'd like to meet. If I were to get out a map, it would be quite the driving tour!

Oh the Famous Five were some of my favorite stories as a girl. On a trip to England I picked up a lot for my girls, hoping they will enjoy them as much. I bet your daughter adores them!
