Happy Thursday to you! I hope your week has gone quickly; to those who live near the wildfires in southern Colorado, please be safe. Yesterday we met our daughter's inlaws for lunch, something we do every month or so. We went to a local brewery and I ordered the gluten free Shrimp Tacos; I specifically asked if they were spicy, as I have gotten where I don't like anything more than mild. The waitress assured me that they weren't. It is a very nice looking plate.

However, now I know to ask what type of seasoning is on the shrimp or was Cayenne Pepper and was spicy. I scraped it all off and it wasn't too bad. Today, I've already walked my 3 miles with a neighbor and in a bit have to go to the doctor to have 9 stitches taken out(I had a little lipoma taken out last week). I haven't been able to lift any weights at the gym, so just doing bicep curls, walking and bike riding. Next week we head out to attend a wedding in Ca. so will also miss the gym-it will be like starting over when we get back.
For those of you who visit here, I want to ask if you have seen a huge decline in visitors to your blogs. With everyone active on FB and Instagram, I'm sure many have stopped blogging.  However, I never started blogging to get followers, but got used to those would would come and comment.  Now I understand why so many are quitting this wonderful world of blogging.
Have a great day.


  1. Hello ((((((Noreen)))))). Yes, I do believe that FB & Instagram have put blogging in the backseat... maybe even the trunk! :-( I don't know if I have fewer viewers or not but I'm guessing I do. I love to read your posts and hope you continue to write them. When I write mine I try to "keep 100", as the young folks say today. I write about the pleasant things but then I also write about the trials & tribulations too. I think if we write sweetzy posts all the time, our readers might see our lives as perfect and theirs as pretty awful. So you never know what you're going to get by visiting my blog cos life is definitely NOT all flowers & candy in my world. :) Blessings to you, Andrea xoxo

  2. Noreen, I frequently drop in and love to see what you and your family are up to. I seldom leave comments but have a few blogs I enjoy dropping in on. I have abandoned my own blog and don't do FB or Instagram... my life is just to busy to get caught up in all the social media. I love to see all your quilting projects... so beautiful!

  3. Mom doesn't do spicy very well either. Her tummy revolts:)

    We have seen a bit of a slowdown in comments, but our regulars are pretty faithful. We have had a lot going on with the family for a while now and with summer it is harder on Mom to get to all the blogs every day. We don't do FB.

  4. So nice to visit with you, sweet friend. Yes, I have seen a decline, also, but do you know what I think it is? I think it may have something to do with whatever changes blogger made. I don't seem to be getting all of my blog subscriptions, either, so I am wondering if maybe it knocked people off our subscriptions lists? Also, some people are having trouble commenting, for some reason. I have tried to figure it out, but I don't know how to fix it. Anyhow, I hope things pick back up for you. I am so thankful you got your stitches out and hope you don't have any more trouble. God bless you!!
