Quiet day here in Maryland with gray skies and a little rain. As I write this post, a front is blowing in, a Bruce Springsteen concert is on TV, my husband is napping on the couch and the little black cat is curled up on a pillow next to me. Where's Georgie? Oh yeah, there he is. He's over by the front door lying down in one of his favorite spots.
So you can see it's excitement galore here. But secretly, let me tell you honestly that I LOVE this. It feels normal, you know? I can hear the wind outside and we're safe and warm in here. We have a home to live in and we're blessed with that.
Now let's get to the winners of the Pay It Forward contest from yesterday. They are:
They'll each be getting something from me in the mail very soon and then they'll host a pay it forward contest on their blogs, so be sure to visit and be one of the first three commenters.
Thanks to all for your opinions on the Mary Poppins issue, the hot topic from yesterday. Honestly, I can't believe how vacuous my posts are sometimes. There's another word for you, Rich. The Mary Poppins issue came up when my friend, who I told you would remain nameless, told someone they reminded him of Mary Poppins. Told her, to her chagrin, mind you, which puzzled him. You see, he thought this would be a grand compliment because the Poppins rocks his world. Now some of you agreed with him that yes, she is quite the hottie. Check out that link, Rich. It's the Urban Dictionary.
However, if a man told me that I reminded him of Mary Poppins, I'd have to hit him with my big umbrella (the one with the parrot head on the handle). Don't get me wrong. I loved watching Mary Poppins and even today, I'd enjoy it. But you aren't giving me a compliment telling me I remind you of the magical British nanny.
So that's where that came from. And so, without further ado,
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
