Facebook and the Great Southern Snowstorm 2011

I tend to be more chatty on Facebook than on Blogger. And more often. I recently realized that while I am connected to family, friends, acquaintances and even strangers on Facebook (FB), I am missing out on my blogger buddy's FB lives.

I'd like to remedy that. Many of you display a Facebook button on your blogs. I'm adding one, too. I like peeking in to others lives and sharing mine with them. It makes me feel a part of something bigger.

Typically my FB posts and comments are short. Yesterday I got wordy. I'm sharing as is, no grammar corrections, etc:

Dahlonega Snow 1/10/11
"Saw some people on the news who were out playing in the snow with their dogs and just had to!!!

The soft, powdery snow stuck to my Koolaburras and the sweats rolled halfway to my knee. Pat, our wonderful hyperactive landlord beat me to it.

He and Daniel had already scraped the main road through our little 'village' and is now scraping driveways of some 20odd cabins and houses.


Even sheltered, Betty's white 
I cleared the snow off my car, swept five inches of snow off our stairs and helped Randy clear a spot on the landing outside our front door, plus his truck.

Then trudged up the driveway to get the mail and check on Willa and Saphire (Saffy ...for short) who leapt around the snow like an old pro (has some Llasa in her!).


Now I'm settling in to do some writing.

Makeshift feeders are just as
appreciated by our feathery friends.
Hope everyone is taking advantage of this lovely reprieve.

Go outside. Get wet. Build a snow woman. Throw some.

Lordy, don't eat any. No telling what kind of chemicals you'll be downing.

Thank the maker for a day in which our world can cleanse herself, without automobiles and planes flying about her dumping petrochemicals.

Bugsy's new favorite hangout


Take the day to relax and enjoy your home. Your house. Your husband. Your dog.

Read a book. Take a nap.

Rejoice in this day. it is good."

Okay, I'm off to find a Facebook button to post here so that we can be friends. Hope this works! :)

TaDa! Here it is. Will you friend me? Pretty please?

I almost never post anything on facebook anymore. I'll do a fast run through once in a while just to see what's up and then I'm out. But I'll add you. Just cuz I like you :)

...I would most definitely friend you, but am sadly the last person on earth yet to sign up. Not sure why...its been so long now that I've turned it into a form of rebellion at this point. Call it a writer's tic, or stupidity, both work:)

Think we are already friends. :))

Donna Hole said...

I didn't get a snow day - it's been foggy, and now its raining. But I certainly enjoyed your day :)

We are friends on FB, but I'm not a very Good Friend, as I rarely initiate a status post of my own, and only comment once in a while. But I enjoy your posts when I catch them.

Yvonne, thanks, we're hooked up now, yay!

WC, thanks, I got it!

Elliot, I reconnected with my friends from elementary and high school after having been gone for 30 years. Facebook is what brought be back home, made me realize that I HAVE a home and that I WANT it.

It takes very little time (for me anyway) and is a great way to stay connected to family and friends. Just saying. Not trying to convince you or anything, lol.

Tab, yes we are!

Donna, yes you are a VERY GOOD FRIEND. :)

Jules, yes we are. I checked that out a while back but don't remember why I didn't do it. I'll check again.

Olivia J. Herrell said...

Dolly, Bugsy says, "ooolala, I love my new Dolly friend!" Thanks for stopping by, I'll come over and check out your blog, too! Do come back and click follower when you get a chance. Nice to meet you!

Hi Olivia, I just sent a friend request. I'm trying to wean myself off Facebook, though unsuccessfully.

DL Hammons said...

Been there...doing that! :)

Have a great week!

How do we know that Bugsy isn't writing those notes as well beside guarding them?
