In mood for a vacation | Weekly Snapshot

Yet another week has gone by with no end in sight for the pandemic. Being able to distinguish weeks became a challenge months ago, so no surprises there. But the weather is getting colder and winter is coming (hopefully not Martin's winter - we had enough of that this year already). I used to love winter, I used to look forward to it. But for the past few years, it has tended to be a very gloomy season. I'm usually just looking forward to it ending. So, this year, it's going to be harder to get through the season, especially since we are all still mostly at home. Mind you, I don't mind the restrictions as they do have a useful purpose, but wish more people followed them well and that we had done a better job when the weather was warmer to keep the virus at bay so that it didn't have to last this long. But that argument probably won't stick anyways, as many countries are now facing second waves. At the end of the day, we really need a vaccine but I hope that isn…

Dewy Ramblings: I'm back!

I'm back finally! I left on Friday evening, and reached back on Monday, early morning at 3 am. So as you can imagine, I'm still feeling sluggish after the very very hectic yet amazing weekend! I visited the Capitol Hill, the Washington monument, White House and the Smithsonian museums, and I loved all that history exuding out of the city. Did you know History was my favorite subject in high school? My friends and I walked a LOT! It was tiring, but I feel so elated now, I think we saw so much more that way. I'll write a more detailed weekend getaway post (hopefully with pictures) this Sunday, since right now, I would love to just do -nothing-!

I have a lot of posts to catch up with. I may take advantage of Google Reader's "Mark all as Read", but I would love to see how you all fared at the Bloggiesta - How did you do?

Also, what else did you do this weekend that I missed?

It's World Cup time when the World stops, lol, doesn't seem to affect the blogging world, hahahhaha

I am a France fan so less reading than usual here.

Glad you had a fun time away.

Welcome back! I'm glad you had a good time!

I hate to admit it, but I used Mark All As Read for the first time at the end of Bloggiesta. I had gotten so far behind, and I knew that 1000+ had to be over 2000, so I bit the bullet and did it. I felt a teensy bit of guilt, but mostly I felt relief to be starting fresh. I say go for it if you need to.
So glad you had a wonderful time in DC; it's such a great city! I am in London so blogging is going to be a bit difficult, but I am going to try.

Marce, isn't that so? I would expect people to drop everything and watch the WC! But no, blogging goes on, sigh... I support France too, btw! :)

Jen, I feel guilty about using the Mark All As Read. But if I feel overwhelmed, I am all for it! Hopefully, I plan to spend all day today weeding through the posts!

Helen, Have a great time in London. It is one of my definitely-should-see places!!

Glad to have you back *hugs*

Totally hit "Mark all as read!" That hulking reader is so stressful and you know we'll all have posts up again in a day or two!

Juju, it was so awesome to walk through the various sights in DC! Loved it!

Lisa, I have finally come around to realizing that. I think I will do that after all!
