Zephyrhills, Florida (high 75, low 43)
It was cool last night. We were toasty warm under the electric blanket but the kitties were cold so we turned on the heat for them. Yeah, they’re spoiled. I love cool nights and warm days.
I have another appointment to have my eye pressure checked today. It should be down since I am on medication, but then again, it shouldn’t have been up after the laser surgery. Hopefully it will be resolved soon. These doctor appointments make it difficult to plan anything fun. Hopefully this week will be better.
Are any of you using Pinterest?
Rick posted about it a while back and my first thought was NO….too much stuff already. After I read about it, I could see some benefit.
Quite often I read a blog post a nice campground or interesting place to visit. I make a mental note to “remember” it. Yeah right….with my good memory???
I thought Pinterest might be a good place to make these notes. Think of it like a big bulletin board.
I joined Pinterest, but haven’t played with it much. Every time I pulled it up, I got a big mess of other peoples “pins.” This is not what I wanted to see. I finally got into it a bit today and figured out how to get to MY pins and make my own categories. It’s not difficult, but takes a little time to get it figured out.
I was reading Where's Weaver this morning and someone mentioned saving that post to their “Texas” pin. That sounded like a good idea….separating these favorites by state. So I went and fooled around with Pinterest a bit , made a category, for Texas, and added their post to MY Texas pin. Such a good idea to separate by state.
I also made a category of My Favorite Things. It’s kind of like Oprah! I’ll add to it occasionally.
Anyway, I think I’m going to start using Pinterest more as everyone heads out for their summer travels. One day we’ll head out west and now I’ll be able to remember some of these places I have wanted to visit.
How about you? Do you use Pinterest? What sorts of categories do you use?
I think it might be a good idea. Of course I also thought Google + might be a good idea, but it is overrun with people I never heard of who are “following” me, so that I’ll see their advertisements. It’s way out of control. It may just be that I haven’t taken the time to learn about it though……and probably won’t.
We’ve really been “in the money” lately. After we got the $50 from Trailblazer Magazine for my photograph, we got a letter and nice gift certificate from Lazy Days.
When Gin and Syl decided to buy a new motor home, they decided to check out Lazy Days, after reading my blog about the great service we had received when we bought there.
They ended up buying their new Winnebago at Lazy Days, and gave them our name as a referral. Lazy Days sent us a nice “thank you”. We’re getting a nice gift certificate plus a free 4 day, 3 night rally at their campground. Thanks again Gin and Syl. We’re glad they treated you as well as they did us. If any others buy from Lazy Days and have done so from our recommendation…don’t forget to mention us! We like free stuff!
