Moday Meanders 3-15

Halfway through March already!! Damn. Somebody's got to take their foot off the accelerator.

I had the most amazing weekend.

I got an unexpected email that reminded, strongly, why I blog. That email left me on cloud nine all weekend long. And LM (Love Muffin) now understands a little better - she was there when I saw the email, and I read it to her.

Did you know that yesterday was Mother's Day in the U.K.? Lift a glass. I did.

I got to hang out with this lovely lady for much of yesterday ---

Mishi & Me
(I'm the one on the left)

Mishi was in town on business and we had lunch, we hung out and talked for several hours, met Nap Warden and several other bloggers at a restaurant and hung out a little more, and then they all took off for a dinner they needed to attend and I went home.

While Mishi and I were talking, she introduced me to a little gadget she has, called a "Lens Baby". It does some cool stuff I can't really explain very well - just go here and look around. I took the shot that follows with the Lens Baby on my camera.

Cool, huh?

Hey Lou! It really was awesome to meet you tonight. What a soul you are. It just shines right out of you. :-)

That lens baby thingamijig looks cool. I'll have to check it out. I've been picking Mishi's brain too about cameras tonight...I mean why not?? :-)

Have a great Monday! I'm hitting the hay...

I'm glad you had a great weekend!

Amazingly, I DID know it was Mother's Day in the UK - and even more astoundingly, I managed to get cards and flowers to Mother, Mother-in-law, Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers.

No wonder I'm tired this morning, all that being impressed with myself....

I'm jealous you got to hang with Mishi! I look forward to meeting her soon.

Glad you had a good weekend, we did too!

Toyota has their foot on the accelerator, that's who!

Nice picture of you and Mishi. I guess I will check out her blog too.

What were you doing on the faucet anyway?

Shadow said...

now that's how i love to hear you sounding on a monday, chirpy, happy, photos to show...

NicoleB said...

Yepp, I would highly appreciate if someone takes their foot off the accelerator too.
Time flies...

I do envy you a tiny bit for meeting all those bloggers. But then again, I met one last week too.
Just didn't blog about it - oups ;)

Oh yes, one day I get Lensbabies too, so much fun :D

Cheers to you guys - want some heat?

That lensbaby looks like a very cool gadget, I've seen pictures on Mishi's blog. It must have been great to hang out with Mishi and the other bloggers, I'm just a teeny weeny bit jealous. (I'm not the only one it seems.) I love the picture of you and Mishi, you both look great, and I love that little sparkle in your eyes!

Lensbaby looks quite cool and fun to use. That is a nice shot of you and Mishi too.

I'm having lens baby envy.
