Leaving "anonymous" notes...

I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoy reading the comments that some of you leave on my blog posts. Knowing how much the comments mean to me, I'm trying to do better at leaving comments on other folks' blogs.

I try to respond to as many of your comments as I can, especially if you ask me a question.  However, sometimes I find myself  very frustrated if there is no way to contact you.  Please make sure if you ask a question that there is a way for me to write you back.  If you haven't heard from me, now you know why.

Several months ago, in an attempt to find a way to have an email address to go with the comment, I changed the Blogger comment settings.  However, several folks wrote that they couldn't figure out how to leave a comment, so I changed back to the old way.

I have also removed the feature where you have to write some nonsense letter and number combinations to prove to Blogger that you are not a robot.  I know I dislike having to write those on other folks' blogs.  The combinations are becoming more and more distorted and are sometimes almost impossible to read!

I'm often asked how I get so much stitching done. I'm really not that fast, but the couple of hours that I typically get in in the early morning really add up.  (I didn't get those hours in last weekend when our youngest grandson was here--he too is an early riser.)  I usually don't get in much stitching during the day unless I'm busily working to get out a new design.  Sometimes I stitch at night, but not every night like I used to do.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.  Ours is starting our rainy, but I think things will change tomorrow.  Right now I'm delighting in the rain because I know it is good for the flowers I planted earlier in the week.  I always like to put geraniums in the two large pots on our front steps, but I goofed this year when I bought some red ones.  I thought they would look so pretty from the street, but ... I completely forgot about the roses around the front walkway.  Yikes, the red geraniums looked terrible next to them!  Thankfully, I had bought some others in a different color for the deck so I was able to switch the placement.  Remind me next year, not to buy any red ones!

I've had the same thoughts as you Ellen and I've posted about it numerous times. However, your comment format is still asking me to enter a word and those weird fuzzy number photos? Perhaps you didn't save the feature?

I think it's working :D
