Google Reader, Bathrooms, and Fairy Doors Oh My!

When I opened up Google Reader yesterday morning I was greeted with a nasty note that said it will be going away soon. I've been using Google Reader to follow blogs since 2005? 2006? A long time. I'm sad (and a little annoyed) since it was such an easy way to keep up with all the sites that I read. Guess it's time to find a new reader.

I've heard about Lifehacker and Slick RSS so I'll be checking those out later on. Let me know if you know of an alternative too - especially a free one.


On to other not so exciting things...Let's talk bathrooms!

We're getting ready to put some lipstick on one of our bathrooms and here's some of what's going in there. New light, new paint, new mirror. Shower curtain, rugs, towels, etc. are still TBD.

What else has been going on? I've been working on Vaughn's fairy door for her room. I want it to be a surprise - it will just appear in her room one night - so I can only work on it when the kids are not around which is why it's taking me so long. I can't wait to attach the tiny gold door knocker and door knob! 

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

It's Friday and the temp here is supposed to get to 75! We're all so excited about this! Tomorrow, of course, will be back in the low 40's so we're taking advantage of it while we can. 

Have a great weekend!

  1. Can't wait to see the finished projects around there!! Enjoy the weather today and maybe a 'rita or two? Always goes nice with warm weather!!!!

  2. Thanks! Taco Tuesday has been officially moved to Fridays because of your rita recipe - and you know that I don't normally like them! That says a lot! God bless the VitaMix!

  3. Hi...I just found your blog yesterday. Your writing style struck a chord with me so I'm already an email subscriber. :) I'm leaving my comment in response to the Google Reader issue. I don't personally use it but I do also subscribe by email to some nail blogs, two of which also talked recently about their sadness at seeing Google Reader on its way out. I've posted links below to what these nail blogs had to say because they both include more suggestions of alternative ways to subscribe (which you asked in your post today to know about). One of the nail bloggers wrote very similar to what the other write, but I don't know if they are identical, which is why I'm leaving you both links:

  4. Welcome, Delphi!

    Thanks for subscribing and for the comments - I'll definitely check those out for suggestions.

  5. I just switched to Feedly. I haven't used it enough to give an opinion either way, but it seems ok and effortlessly imported everything from my google reader.
