A New Poll and Other Additions

I thought it might be fun to add a Poll to my sidebar:-) So, if you want to participate, head over to my sidebar to the right and just under my About Me can take the poll!

I also decided to add a couple of other things that make this blog "me":-) You will find each of these new things to the right on my sidebar. I hope you will feel free to take a little look and enjoy.

First of all, I added " On My Bookshelf"...a list of books that I am either reading or will be soon.

Next, is "Poetry Corner" I will showcase different poems that I like or find encouraging, uplifting, etc. Sometimes it will be poems by well known folks...Robert Frost, Tennyson, Wordsworth. However, I will also share poems by my late, dear Grandma Gloria as well as some of my own. Today I have showcased a poem by Isaac Watts. Many of us are unfamiliar with this version, but may be familiar with Lewis Carroll's parody of it in Alice in Wonderland. Sound familiar? "How doth the little crocodile improve his shining tale...." In any case, I surely hope you enjoy these bits of verse! I will try changing it up regularly. If you have any requests...leave me a comment:-)

Lastly, I added a spot that I call "My Favorites". This may be favorite websites, books, blogs, items from my home, or little bits of verse. Today, I have a piece from Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken. It has been a favorite of mine since I was a child! Again, I will try to change this regularly.

I hope you enjoy these additions! I look forward to updating them:-)

Hey lady,

It has been a while since I stopped by. SOrry about that. I guess going through a week long Revival Meeting at church can really slow a person down during the week.

I am glad that you are feeling better. I could not imagine having a kinney stone. My sister had them all the time while growing up.

I love the idea about wearing dresses or skirts everyday. I do this alot from time to time with out thinking about it. RIght now, I seem to be in my "wearing pants during the day" mood.

Stop by my place sometime soon, maybe I will have posted something new.

Love to your family,
