My trip is finally catching up with me and I am really tired. This morning I cleaned up the kitchen and then made a big pot of minestrone-style vegetable soup, but this afternoon I sat down with a glass of wine to look at a magazine and fell asleep for an hour. I must have needed the rest. The soup turned out to be very good. I think I'll save my dessert for a couple hours from now.
I need to tackle the header picture - get a different picture and hope it fits. I fooled with this one for a long time and just gave up trying to make it smaller. I used to have no problem doing that until Blogger "improved" and "updated" their program, and now I can't figure out the simplest things.
I'm also noticing way more spam than before - mostly spam comments to my blog. It seems like the traffic peaks and then dies down a bit, and then goes back up again. The irritating thing is that comments come to me in individual emails, so I have to look at them to see if it is truly an anonymous reader, then mark it as spam if it isn't, and then go back once in a while and delete all the spam. And I have to go to the spam comments section of the blog and remove them. No, it isn't difficult but it sure is annoying, especially when I'm getting about 10 of them a day, minimum. Do the writers of this crap actually think anyone is going to check out their link or answer their dumb question? I wish I knew what makes people do that - it must be for the sole purpose of being a jerk.
I feel like going back to sleep, but that would be a big mistake. I'll catch up to myself sooner or later.
