Is It Just Me?!

      Is it just me, or does it seem like everyone in blogland, on Twitter, and on Facebook are in their own world right now?! O_O All of a sudden it started to feel like there were a lot fewer people online!...There are a lot less blog posts in my stream for sure, and it's been quite a while since I actually had more than a handful of people respond back to me on Twitter.
          Facebook?!...Well, people are talking on Facebook, but it appears to be more to themselves than to other people! LOL...It feels like everybody, internet-wide, got a new cat bed and they're trying to figure out how to get comfortable in it! ^_^

      Is it me, or does it seem like the weather is getting wilder all over the world?! O_O We woke up to more thunder claps and rain and lightening this morning, but that's nothing cmpared to the weather people all over the world are dealing with! Just looking at the TV news it appears that wild weather, and challenging circumstances because of it, are causing people headaches everywhere!
      The high winds whipped down an overhead highway sign in Calgary Canada, Tropical Storm Gordon is twirling east of Bermuda, and more than 70 wildfires are burning across 13 states in  the western united states!...There's more, but...O_O...I don't wanna talk about it. Is it just me?!

     Is it just me, or does it seem like everybody is dieting, finishing a diet, starting a diet, becoming vegan, giving up carbohydrates, giving up meat, doing a cleanse, pureeing their food, or doing some kind of energy shake or the other?! O_O 
     I know hubby and I are trying to eat better, but not because of some trend. We're just 'fatty-fatties'!! LOL We know we're 'fatty-fatties' because of the angry-ness of the buttons on our clothes lately!...Well, on hubby's clothes. I've given up buttons on mine! ^_^ 
     Is that what's going on with everybody?!...getting bigger, I mean?!...If so, trying to kill our food desires isn't gonna help! LOL....Or maybe we're all just getting older and our bodies don't like doing to food what it used to do to food. Now it wants to do digestively bad things to food! LOL
       Or maybe we just need to channel our food desires down a certain portion-controlled alley and stop giving it the whole highway to run free my 'fatty-fatty' opinion. ^_^ ...Take that for what it's worth, people! LOL
       It's hard. I know! But I've found out that eating can be fun...even when you give an anticipated meal from your 'cooking crazy' spouse the stink eye!...^_^ Yes, I gave his black bean, stewed tomato and onion mixture the 'stink eye' when he tried to share it with me. ^_^ But when I tasted it.....YUM!..And there wasn't a piece of meat in sight! ^_^
      Of course, when we had it for leftovers I had to put a hamburger patty and some cornbread next to it! LOL...What?!.....What?!.....Well, I didn't think it would taste good run through a blender so I could drink it!

      I have to keep my strength up. I've got crocheting to do! ^_^ ...Which, by the way, I did none of yesterday!....NONE!...*shaking my head*...And on a week where it was suppose to be 'all about crochet' too!...*shaking my head again*...And no! I'm not blaming it on my hubby's yummy bean, tomato and onion meal! O_O And I'm not gonna say anything else about it either!...Talk among yourselves! LOL

      Is it just me, or am I having waaaaay too much fun blogging and sharing my Etsy finds here?!...

          I was thinking the other day that maybe I should venture out onto the internet and find other things besides Etsy items to share...O_O...but it's scary for me out there!!! And I wouldn't know where to start anyway....So, please bare with me sharing my fellow Etsians stuff for a while please. :-) I'll get brave....when I grow up (computer-wise)...and when pigs fly!! LOL

      Is it me, or have I talked too much for one post already?!...Don''t answer that! ^_^ Have a good day, Everybody!

I Like To Talk

I like to talk;
I like to gab;
I like a girlfriend
free confab!

I like to chat;
I like to speak;
I find that words
are what I seek.

I like the chatter
of a crowd;
Not in a whisper,
but out loud.

But, please no talking
while you chew.
{Speaking does 
have manners too!}

I like the noise
that utterance does.
The constant
conversation buzz.

Maybe I need a
word-free diet;
No! I could not
withstand the quiet!

So, I will talk;
Oh yes! I'll dabble
in a constant
lingo babble.


  1. It's not just you!! People are busy with their last minute vacations, school shopping, etc. and are NOT online....that's my theory anyway for what it's worth. LOL
    As for the "diets" yep, I'm always on one but never lose. At least I'm not gaining either. The shake fad is strong here too. A friend gave me a taste and promised I'd love tasted like spinach and bananas! Yuck!! And that's what it was. I always say I'd rather eat my calories! Much more satisfying. After all, I'm not a baby and don't need to eat baby food. LOL. <<<<just a personal opinion. I love fruit smoothies though! Yum!
    I always enjoy seeing your Etsy finds. I really LOVE that vase! It's awesome and I'm going to have to favorite that one!! don't talk too much. I love reading your posts. Just haven't had the time lately. Next week, I'll have the time! LOL
    Have a wonderful day and stay safe. We have some bad weather rolling in right now too.

    1. Ha! Ha! Ha! Thank you, my friend! It's good to know my talking is being lovingly endured, and that it's not just me about the social media! ^_^ Thanks for the reminder about school and that too. I had forgotten about it...having no little ones myself...You had been hollering laughing about the spinach and banana drink!! LOL I'm with you. I'd rather eat my calories too!...Stay safe in the weather today!

  2. Its not just you Deb!! I notice that too out in blogland and on my own blog. I hear crickets sometimes out on the internet except of course for Facebook! lol Maybe it is the summer with everyone so busy and all.

    You are not alone!


    1. Thanks for the support for my sanity, Cathy! ^_^ At least now I know it's not just me!...You may be right about the summertime thing. It does get more busy in the U.S. winter months!...Well, I hope traffic picks up for you. I'm heading over there there will be at least one more comment! ^_^

  3. It's not just you! Thank you for including my vase!

    1. Thanks for letting me know! ^_^ ... And it was my pleasure to share your vase!

  4. I can't comment on facebook and twitter since I don't do that but I think blogland is quiet do to the Summer windup as I call it. I'm always on a diet but the diet isn't always on me! Working in surgery for 40yrs the size of our patients has increased dramatically. (of course I was a skinny thing 40yrs ago too!) But I remember if a patient weighed in at 250 that was huge. Now 450 is not uncommon. Also the health issues related to weight has increased...joint replacement, gallbladder, cancers, etc. I blame it on inactivity, sugar, fast food, and even the fashion industry. A size 10 today was yesterday's 14. (they know how to sell clothes!) Wow, I guess that weight issue was on my "is it just me" list today! Sorry for talking so long or maybe I'm just following the last stanza of your fun poem! Have a good day Deb!

    1. Hi Yaya!...Yep! You said the same thing everybody has been telling me...summer wind-down, kids going back to school, etc...As to the diet thing, I know from experience that diets, fad diets I mean, don't really work!...But if by 'diet' people are talking about the restricting of foods for medical reasons or health reasons, that certainly can work!...And let's just leave our skinny selves 40 years ago out of this!!!...Ha! Ha!...because it's a fact that I haven't seen 'hide nor hair' of that skinny delusional girl for actually about 40 years! ^_^ Oooo! I could tell you some 'dieting' and 'weight' stories, girl...but I won't!! ^_^ ...And you can talk as long as you want! This is a "Talk Free Zone"! :-] Have a good evening, Yaya!

  5. Lately, I've been meeting so many vegan people, perhaps because working at a humane society. But I like the idea of eating healthier.
    Hope your week is going well.

    1. Eating healthier is always a good way to go, Priscila. :-) ... And yes, I've noticed that a lot of bloggers are Vegan. I've seen them talking about the 'pop-up' Vegan restaurants and giving Vegan recipes for different things. The food actually looks good for the most part, but I don't know about taste. To each his own! :-)
