Back in the day, Saturday Sky was a THING... amongst many knit-bloggers, at any rate. I think of "Saturday Sky" and Sandy, the "founder," if you will, almost any time I take a photo of the sky. There she is... Continue reading

I'm curious about the changes made by Typepad. I also have my blog hosted there and, other than a blip last week when I didn't get notification of comments on a post or two, I don't notice anything different in the way I receive comments or in how I reply... WHAT IS HAPPENING? Meanwhile, I've been considering a move from Typepad for other reasons, but going on 15 years worth of posts is... daunting to say the least. Good luck on your wellness journey!!
