...It's a good thing that Blog Land is visual, not audio, 'cause you'd all be in for a sorry post today. I sound like a cross between a horn and a frog. I'm not sure what's wrong with my voice, but it sure is scratchy.

I hope I'm not catching the cold/cough virus that is floating around our community... but you never know. I hope it's just the fact that I've been spending time outside, around leaves. (So it was only about 1/2 an hour...but, hey...I'm "deathly" allergic, right?)

It wouldn't be that bad if it weren't that part of my family is going to see a new-born baby boy tonight, and I won't be with them because I don't want to take a chance on spreading germs. The little one is the first great-grandson of our pastor. His granddaughter has been a good friend to me, and I'm so excited that she has her first child!

...So... change the subject away from my sorry self..... I'll announce that I've been tagged by Ashley.

I've seen this particular meme floating around in Blog Land quite a bit, but hadn't thought about what I would write down if I were tagged.

...I like to be different. Independent. In a good way. And so, I'm going to bend the rules a little on this meme. First, though, I'd better post those rules:

*Link to the person who tagged you. (Ashley)

*Post the rules on your blog. (Which is what I'm doing right now.)

*Write six random things about yourself.

*'Tag' six-or-so other people at the bottom of your post

*Leave comments on their blogs letting them know they've been tagged.

*Let the person who tagged you know when you've written the post. that I've written them, I'm going to bend them.

I can't think of six random things, because I'm not sure what qualifies as "random". Besides, I think it'd be more fun this way:

Y'all think of six random things you'd like to know about me, and I'll pick six of them to answer. Sorry - I won't promise to answer absolutely anything. :):) But I talk about myself so much on this blog - the least I can do is talk about topics I know you want to hear.

Now... because I couldn't resist:

Isn't she the sweetest bunny ever? This is my rabbit, Snickers, as she appeared a few months ago. (I'm slow at loading pictures onto my computer...and even slower about uploading them onto my blog.)

Now she's loosing her summer coat of fur, in favor of a heavier winter one, and looks like a little boy who has just woken from a nap, with tufts of hair sticking up all over the place. Her hutch is full of floating chunks of fur. :)

...And.... I can't think of how to end this post... so I'll just say goodbye for now, and head outside to see what's going on in the garden. I made tomato-lentil soup for lunch today, using fresh tomatoes from our garden. It's October, and we're still getting some!

Yes.. I did say "outside." With all the leaves.

As Mom would say, I'm a glutton for punishment.

Hmmm, I can't think of anyhting right now. I will tell you if I do.
Your bunny is so cute! I used to have rabbits. About 40 of them. They came at me way too fast, and I got really overwhelmed.(I know what you are thinking (at least I think I do :) 40?! Of course you were WAY over whelmed.) Any ways, we don't have them anymore. I still like bunnies, in moderation. :) What breed is yours? I hope you get to feeling better soon!
I hate it when I must miss out on going to see a newborn because I was sick. :( It is no fun.
