Blogger's Block

I feel like I should write something. But what? My life is like the directions on the shampoo bottle.




So what could I write that I haven't already written? The most interesting part of life lately has been our guests. Interesting people and fun to share life stories with them. Even pictures!

But I don't want to write about our guests, they didn't sign up for public exposure simply by staying with us. I guess I could write about them anonymously, but then the links I'd like to include would have to be left out.

I could write about this being the anniversary month of when I bought the house. Eight years ago I signed some papers to own this piece of land and the little house that once was little. But then I'd have to hook up the backup drive to get the pictures off it to show you how little, and I'm quite comfortable on the couch right now and just am not in the mood to dig up cables and hook up equipment.

I think I'm rather tired of technology. That's it, I'm not blocked from writing, I'm blocked from hooking up in order to augment my stories with pictures. In other words, I'm in a lazy mood.

No excuse. Just a reason. And there you have it, my non-blog for today.

Sue, I remember those stories and photos. I was fascinated by your journey. That was when I first started following the old message board around the time of our first trip to Isla. I guess it's been 8 years since we discovered the island! It's been wonderful to meet and get to know you!

The anti-blog blog post! Love it. Once we get over the sicknesses in this house, I'll give you a call about dinner. I'm thinking Neopolitan Baked Ziti?

Sue, I remember very well when you bought the house, and I remember well the stories and pics! It was a great journey to follow. And it was little :-)! It has sure been transformed, and though I've not seen it lately I've seen pics,it looks beautiful.

Rest does wonders for the mind! You will dream of a good story.

Sue I think you were one of the original "bloggers" with trip reports on the old chat board. You are always a joy to read. I still recall one of your first nights in your new house and you kept hearing a tapping or clicking sound. Turned out it was gecko's. Love your animal stories and trip reports. Still have never met you. dujy

Beck - fun to meet you too! And I love your blog.

Wayne - ziti sounds good to me. Yum!

Jan - thanks, I love it, although a friend sent me a picture of it when I did the first bit of work on it, and looking at that, I sort of miss the house when it was like that.

Carl - I am hoping I have not lost all those stories as I know my memory hasn't retained them all. Too many laptops later and I may not have them any more. :-(

K - well, I thought of a story, not sure it was a 'good' one, but a story none the less.

Dujy - I think we met at La Bruja several years ago? You were there with Ed and maybe Zina? Thanks for the comments on the posts, glad you enjoy them.

I've had that bloggers block for a few months now. You are doing far better than me at writing. I have tons of ideas but no energy to write.

Oh dear, I'd hate to have to drag out a hard drive to get pictures. A nap would be a better option I think.
