This and That



I think (!!!!) Karma Kitty is finished.
He suggests that you Dream Big!




I've decided to have my blog printed in book form.
This book covers the first 6 months -- year 2008.
I decided that I'd spent a lot of time on Twisty Lane,
lots of pictures taken, stories told and that I'd be very sad if for some reason it all disappeared into cyberspace!
I used Blog2Print and am very happy with the product.

***

Snippets:

Weather: Hot (hotter than you know where) and humid. It has rained in some areas but not where we live.
Baseball: We went to the Astros Mets game last night and the Astros won! We also had dinner at the 5-7 grill. Named after Bagwell and Biggio and their retired numbers. Too expensive, but good fare for a baseball park. I had the mahimahi and Mr. Dragon the seafood pasta! They gave us to go cups filled with ice tea. Ice tea at the ballpark! YeeHaw!
Wearing: Going to the grand-reopening of our favorite grocery store this morning and I'm wearing my G.R.I.T.S shirt (Girls Raised in The South) with blue britches.
Cassie: Cassie is growing like a little weed and I wish I had pictures to share, but she doesn't stay still long enough to get a good shot! We'll keep trying. She does have some words of wisdom for you:
Cassie says: Everything is a toy!

Wishing you well!

How did the opening of the grocery store go? I'm not a fan of big crowds especially in the heat. You are brave...very BRAVE! :)

oh wow! very cool.
I saw the blog into book thingy a while back but when I tried, it didn't work. I think I had too many photos or something? Maybe if I limit the number of posts.

There's something slightly off with your blog right now - and when I visited before but I thought it was just me - it's hard to see the "Post a Comment" because it's partly on top of the small images below "You might also like". Meaning, there's something off with the space in your blog posts or the space between things I might also like and the link to post a comment.

Oh, that is a wonderful idea. I have toyed with that idea myself. Wonderful keepsake, and way to save the memories.

Miss Snap, I have a little something for you. Could you e-mail me your mailing address, so that I can pop it in the mail.

Oooh seafood pasta, sounds great. I agree with Cassie, everything is a toy!

Hi Snap, A lovely post today as I have my morning coffee with you. It's getting colder here by the day - we will have a hard frost soon and my garden will say goodbye for another year. I'm going to check out the site you mention. Have a good day.

Karma Kitty is so cute! And what a great idea to "bookify" your blog. I've seen one of those books made from a friend's blog and they are terrific.

Hi Snap, Love the Karma Kitty... I need to get my blog printed... I have heard about blog2print---and even have checked them out... Mine will cost me an arm and two legs.. I'll probably have to do it in 6 month increments.

Glad you all went to another Astros game--and that they WON... That restaurant sounds neat. Were either B or B there????? ha... I know that Bagwell is working for the Astros. What is Biggio doing this year?

What grocery store????

Have a good evening. We finally are getting some rain here today... Yeah!
Hugs,
Betsy

I keep saying that I need to back up my blog, but I still haven't done it!

This is a good nudge. Not sure I'll do the book thing (if it would even work), but I should certainly do a back up of everything.

Terri said...

Oooh, Karma Kitty is fab!
As well as having your blog put in a book! That will be amazing.
Hugs,
Terri

Hi Snap,

I love the idea of capturing your blog before it disappears (a fear I harbor also).

Your Karma Kitty is wonderful, BTW...

I am glad you mentioned blog2print, I have been thinking the same thing, all this writing and art and photos, should do something. Glad you like it.
Karma Kitty certainly has lots of (dos) fishes to choose
from floating about her head. xox Corrine

I used to be pretty good at printing out the pages--way back when I started! I'm going to look into your suggestion. I agree, it would be a shame to lose it all. Thanks for sharing!

Everything is a toy - spoken like a spirit that truly lives in the moment. What a great idea to get your blog printed. It must look very different in book form. Ideas! Ideas! Ideas everywhere!
