    Ann, Are you the one who posted about Pinterest? I have been to so many blogs during this Pillow Talk Hop that I forget who recommended it. BUT, if it wasn’t you, I think you would like it. It’s a digital bulletin board where you can “pin” pictures of things you’ve seen and liked on the web, much like you do here on your blog. It’s pinterest.com.

    Today I would put on my list of things to be thankful for: spring-like days while it is still officially winter!

      No, it wasn’t me. But, it’s so weird that you mentioned it. Somehow I stumbled upon it yesterday evening and was wondering if I should do it. It does seem like something I would like. Thanks for suggesting it. And I, too, am so thankful for this spring-like weather.

      Hi Meg. I’ve never watched Glee. Were “arm warmers” part of an episode? Maybe I should start watching it.
