Yesterday was a bit crazy for me .. so I am catching up.

Anita Hohl's blog: click here has some amazing photos, I am recommending the one of the windmill but her set up doesnt have separate URLs for each post, so please visit her and scroll down to see the windmill and as you scroll check out her other shots.. equally awesome!

Congrats to everyone this week .. I have lots of blog reading to make up .. see ya later!

As usual I'm a day late and a dollar short, but I'm here now!! Plan to do some reading! I'm waiting for you to come up with a Post of the Week icon that I can post on my sidebar...

Hilary said...

• Thanks so very much, Sydney. Very much appreciated. :)

• Sandi, to me you are always right on time and always have the exact change. The only icon I planned to use is the POTW image I designed from one of my photos. It appears at the top of each post. Would you like me to downsize one so that if fits your sidebar better? Just let me know and I will. Thanks for the visit. :)
