I don’t like to let the readers of my blog down. I almost didn’t post a weekly wrap up this week. I’m in a right terrible mood, ya’all. Recent events in the blogosphere have disturbed my sense of well being, my sense of community, my sense of being a part of things, my sense of faith in people that they will do the right thing instead of reacting in inappropriate ways. I feel like punching things, frustrated, angry. I haven’t read my google reader since yesterday and I honestly don’t feel inspired to read it right now to pick out the good stuff.
I’m letting you know that because I am going to MAKE myself do it, much as I would rather go sit in a corner and hide right now. Please bear with me as I fight my way out of this wet and muddy paper bag I have found myself in. I’ve made a coffee, I have some cookies here, I lit some candles and put some happy oils into the oil burner.
Just for the info of Daisy the Curly Cat – these are on the top level of my bookshelf and neither of the kitties can reach them, but just in case I’m always in here when candles are burning. If I leave the room, I tend to blow them out or take them with me if I’m going to be in another room for a while. I have a few nooks and crannies where those kitties just can’t get to. To their great dismay and disapproval. :) But burnt whiskers are not a Good Thing so I agree with your Mommy that you’re Not Allowed around anything with a flame. :)
Funny Search Terms This Week –
aluminum underpants – Not terribly comfortable, I suspect!
moving country eat peaches meanings – It is a song actually. :)
life model bent over naked – Now that’s some art I’m not so sure about right there!
A lesson in spelling –
big coock foto
(looks up coock in the dictionary, not there) (looks up coock on insultmonger to make sure it doesn’t belong to another language, nope, it’s not there)
Perhaps you’ll find what you’re looking for if you take out the extra o, searchers? And I don’t know how it’s bringing you here because I’m not in the first 800 search results, and if you can’t find what you’re after in the first 800 search results then something is really wrong! ;)

Here On The Blog –
The most popular post this week has been the
10 Easy Ways To Improve Your Blog Writing – thanks to those who stumbled it ;) It’s closely followed by Thoughts On Making Positive Changes – Can You Do It? and the answer is yes, of course you can!
Also, the blog got a facelift and what a wonderful job I did, too. :) I’m really happy with it. With the thought of the day you now get a lovely photo, too. ;)
Past Snoskred –
Travel back in time and read my thoughts about – Snoskred the Germophobe
Coming Up –
We’ll have to wait and see, but I may get that second writing article done this week. I have some kitty photos too. I have a lot of work I want to do but I also have season 7 of The West Wing so.. we’ll see. :)
I am feeling better after making the effort to push ahead and write this, just so you know. :) My google reader is now empty, which is also quite a satisfying feeling. ;) I can smell rose, ylang ylang and vanilla nutmeg, which are three of the 10 new aromatherapy oils I got today. So the lesson here is sometimes you just have to focus and do the work.
Now I think I will go and watch a couple of West Wing episodes. I love this show. ;) I leave you with a song by Coldplay.
Be excellent to each other, my blog friends. Not just from time to time, but all the time.
