Miz Jenny of I'm Having A Thought Here is a ray of sunshine, just as I knew she would be! We were lucky enough to have her as a visitor to our cottage yesterday, and we had great fun chatting and laughing. I despise having my picture taken these days, let along flung across the internet. But in the spirit of friendship, I will relent on this isolated occasion and share this image of us together on the porch, standing under the Grey Havens sign.
It’s really funny how much you already know someone after you have been blog buddies. And the neat thing about finally meeting face-to-face is that you can finally have a running dialogue! Let me tell you, Miz Jenny is a talker and has more energy than the famous bunny that sells batteries! I know that she was delighted to meet Mr. Jim, and get to see many of his gorgeous photographs. In addition to fulfilling her writing goals, she is aching to upgrade to a digital SLR and get more serious about her photography. She is doing some amazing work with her little Coolpix and has a photographer’s eye. So we hope that she is able to do that soon! We promised her that we would take her out on a photo expedition the next time she came to town, and we would teach her some photography tricks. She also gave me a present: a lovely framed picture of a precious scene that she discovered in the magical city of Savanna, Georgia. I quickly added it to a collection of treasures in my home office.
I’m sure that she will tell all about her visit in an upcoming post and share some photos that she took here around our craftsman-style cottage. I am so glad that I found her blog earlier this year and am sure lucky to her friend!
I wished I had felt better, but her visit really lifted my spirits. I have been battling bronchitis for over a week now. It is really not a good time to be sick, since we are going out of the country in the very near future and will be staying in a tiny town. My doctor prescribed more medicine for me so that I can have a fighting chance in whipping the cooties into submission by the end of the week. If you say some prayers for me to get well soon, you’ll be rewarded with polar bear pictures later! How’s that for a good trade, LOL?
