Insanity. How in the world are we already at the end of the second week of October?? This is going way too fast for me. Just wait for it: next time you turn around it’s Christmas. Do you think it’d be a wise move to start gathering gifts already?
Well, for now all the gathering I’ve done is compiling a list of my favourite posts from the week. Though – thinking about it – saying these were my favourites from the whole wide [blog] world wouldn’t be a true statement for all the blogs I can’t possibly read. Yes, I can be that kind of overly correct. But before I ramble on here: good links from the blog world – whether its entiety or the small part I read.
