An Ode to Blogs

Oh I do love you

Oh blogs of the 'net

Your creators are artsy

and lest I forget,

They are crafty, inspiring,

and lots of fun, too!

But I'm left with dilemna

-- choosing what to do.

There is laundry you see

and my fam wants to eat

Don't they know how inspiring

you are and how sweet?

It's like a new magazine

Day after day

With treat upon treat

to inspire us to play!

I discover a new one

-- must read what I've missed!

Great ideas to be found

to add to my list!

They are thrifty and classy

and known to recycle

And inspire me to run to

Goodwill or to Michael's!

So blogs I do love you,

You inspire me to beauty

But I also am limited

to time sitting on my booty.

The computer it draws me

to find blogs to read

I need to get up though

And do some good deeds.

Like laundry and errands

and mealtime and chores...

Blogs even inspire me to

do those and more.

Inspirational and challenging

Wise and discerning

This community I've found

Has me doing some learning

Of all the neat people

Out there on the 'net

That seem to be kindred

But may not have met.

Thanks to the bloggers

Of the interweb and 'net

For inspiring this blogger

Even those I've not met!

So cute! That poem describes me perfectly. I could sit all day and do nothing but read blogs! BTW, is that your front door? It is GORGEOUS! Have a great day!

Oh how some of those blogs get you thinking and reading, and reading, and reading, and......

I am starting to set a timer for myself! I have found a wonderful world of folks who love to share there gluten-free recipes which makes my life easier!!! But the number of those blogs alone is huge. I have had to limit to a few and stick with them. Once even does some weekly menu plans!!

Hope to blog again soon.

You have hit the nail on the head.
I find myself cleaning & rearranging just so I can post pictures & do tours.

Cute! Your front door looks great!

Thank you for visiting my blog! I really hope you'll be back!

This poem is GREAT!! I have felt this same way. I am always torn between keeping my house clean and finding new blogs! Even as I type this, I should be changing out the washer/dryer! Ha!

Hope to "see" you soon!

Oh my goodness!! I just came to your blog for the first time and what a treat your poem is! I can totally relate to everything you said. It would be awful if someone had a camera and witnessed my blogging. 10 minutes here..load of laundry there...10 more minutes blogging..cook dinner...10 more minutes blogging..clean something!!

The limit of the booty - well, I think my limit as well as my booty need to shake it up a little! :)
