Random Friday Trip Edition

We leave for vacation tonight after work. The car is packed and the gas tank is full. I've pre-written a few posts for next week. I don't expect to be offline the whole week but I like knowing the posts are ready to go. I can't wait to get there. It's a 1300 mile drive, one way. (Above pictures are from the end of the last camping trip, but I am hoping for a repeat performance.)

Have ya'll noticed the little widget I added to the bottom of my posts? I think it's cool. It doesn't seem to slow the blog down on either of my systems, but if it does yours please let me know.

You may have noticed (or not) that I am adding books read in the past to my sidebar. At some point I'll hopefully have all the years since 1993 done. The lists are not in the order I read them, but rather in the order I entered them at Library Thing. If you have explored those lists you'll have noticed that I read a lot of romance in college. I am a big supporter of romance novels, they just don't get a lot of play in the last 5 or 6 years.

Janssen has written a great post about no-reply bloggers and why you should have your email in your profile. She even included pictures!

This is an interesting idea: This woman is wearing the same dress every day for one year (she has 7 identical ones). Every day she posts a picture of how it's unique that day. You can see the pictures on the left side by click on daily or monthly.

Garden Update: It's rained here for something like 2 weeks. Some of the plants are a bit waterlogged. WHERE IS THE SUN??


  1. Oh I totally understand! It's been raining here pretty much every day. Sigh. Summer will come eventually I guess :) And your kids are too adorable all konked out like that. Bet you kind of enjoy the silence once in a while. Oh I like your widget! Where did you find it?

  2. Oh my gosh, they are too darn cute! There's nothing better than having a snack and then sleeping in the car.

  3. All kids need is a little bit of food and a car ride and they always nod off. They look so comfy when they do that too.

    I tried to look at pics of this woman and her one dress but perhaps the project just started as all I see are pics of them making the dress.

    I wish I had a uniform. I hate shopping for clothes.

  4. How sweet they look! And this really perfect behavior for lots of driving, so I hope this year proves as successful!

  5. What the HECK is all over Pirate's face?? Hope the trip is going well so far.

  6. I LOVE sleeping boy photos in the car. I take them all the time. Beyond cute. I do hope the road trip went well. 3 and a half days in a car with two small children. YIKES.
