Yesterday was fair. Had a headache most of the day and a felt queasy, too. Nothing awful, just not great. Oh, well. Can’t feel like a million bucks every day, huh?
I’m a little tired of focusing on cancer, so I thought maybe Friday’s around here could be Cancer-Free Fridays! I love the sound of that!!
Maybe I’ll introduce you to a site that I love or talk about something silly or serious (non-cancer related serious, mind you) or ask you a question (which means that you have to start commenting more! It doesn’t count if you just tell me in person or call me or email me. Silly people. ha ha!).
Today, is going to be a serious Friday. I need to confess something to you.
I know some people might not think it’s appropriate to talk about addictions all out in the open like this, especially when you were raised Southern Baptist. Have mercy. We just don’t talk about such things. But I think it’s important to share this with you. After all, I did say I was going to keep it real on this blog.
I’m addicted to Pinterest. Huh? What did you say? What in the world is a Pinterest, you ask? It’s basically an online bulletin board where you can “pin” your favorite things AND you can look at everyone’s boards and pins, too. You’ll find inspiring quotes, beautiful photography, fashion ideas, recipes, home decor examples, home designs, gift ideas, DIY projects, and much more. The ideas and inspiration are limitless! But the addiction is very real.
Oh, I can hardly type that without laughing. It’s not really an addiction – maybe more like a mild obsession??
The site is actually magical. It can make minutes disappear! I pull up the site planning to look for just a minute to see what’s new and before I know it 15 minutes have passed! Where did the time go?? But it’s fun, it doesn’t require thinking or planning or doing, and it’s a great way to distract myself from the realities of life. That’s come in handy lately, if you know what I mean. The best part is to following boards of people you know so that you can see what they like, which is a great way to get gift ideas for friends and family, too.
To give you an idea of what the site is like, these pins are on my Food board right now. (I should have said this earlier, but if you happen to be a guy reading this, I apologize. This may – no, this will – bore you to tears.) Look at those little baby pancakes! So cute! And the Cream Cheese Cookies – definitely have to give those a try.
And these are on my Wall Art board. I get all kinds of ideas for wall art for my house from here. I have a thing for birds, in case you can’t tell. :)
If you’re brave enough, come visit me on Pinterest. I’m warning you, though. One visit might be all it takes for you to get hooked. :)
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
