Posted by Peg in South Carolina

I don't ordinarily make a statement about my favorite blog post in the list I present, largely because so many of them are favorites! But this week, the following post from Spinninglizzy's Weblog was, for my money, simply outstanding. Perhaps it is the last paragraph that got to me. But in reality, it was her building up to that last paragraph--it was the whole story.

Well Miss Peg -- it's *all* your fault. I'm supposed to be scurrying around the house getting it spit and polished for today's arrival of my Irish Auntie, and instead I have been reading your weekly blog list and sipping my coffee.

Yes, yes, I could have just read one or two and then roused myself and gotten my little rear in gear -- but no. . . one lead to another and another -- very akin to the old "I'll just throw a few more shots before I get up and . . . "

Yes, I'm going to blame it all on you. :-)

All kidding aside, I love your weekly reading list, and always look forward to it.

Jane <-- who swears she is now *really* going to go get things ready before picking up Auntie at the airport!! I swear, I really do!

This is one of my favorites, when you post other interesting blogs. It takes me off onto a journey to read people I don't know if I'd have found other wise.
So, thank you!
Ok, going to start clicking the links and see where I end up next...

Peg in South Carolina said...

Jane and Dave, I'm so glad you like these link collections.

Meg said...

The morality post looks interesting; I've clicked on it several times, but I can't concentrate this week, so I'll have to come back.

Thanks for the highlights, as always, Peg.

Meg the lopsided chipmunk

Meg, sorry you are still lopsided. Maybe next week you can waste some time profitably.......(grin!)

Peg, I'm amazed and flattered to find your mention of me here. I find your blog to be a source of inspiration and I've learned so much from you! Thank You for your kind words and encouragement to a new weaver.
