We leave for Door County today!!! OMG, I am so ready to kick up my heels. Not that we’re a ‘relax-on-vacation’ kinda couple. We’ve got a rain day plan of going to an art studio that has all kinds of different activities, then we’re totally going kayaking again, we’re going to catch a fish boil, go fishing where Hubby grew-up fishing, there’s a place I want to go that I’ve not remembered what the name of it was! Doh! It’s a natural oddity.. crater.. thang in the rocks.. I’ll surely post it when I go there.
I’m not a fan of Face
plantbook, I do have a page for this site, however stopped linking posts to it years ago or even visiting it. Too much pettiness and folks were stealing my stuff! Angry face! I still post this blog to Twitter. I also forward (Gesh, I don’t know what it’s called to just throw back out a tweet..) things I feel strongly about. I don’t actually go on Twitter. I’ve only got a handful of followers there. I think it’s because I don’t read IST. Oh, that’s Internet Slang Terms. I have a pretty vivid imagination (heehee), I can come up with some pretty good answers to any given acronym.
So after trying those two and not feeling the love, I’ve been trying to embrace Instagram. For those who visit my page, for realsies, on the computer, on the left sidebar, I’ve added a ‘What I’ve Seen‘ header, that is my account. I have been posting things that are a no-no.. Like ya’all probably think we’re alcoholics. I assure you, we’re working alcoholics.
I would love to hear any tips, unwritten etiquette, #Helpmewithhashtags, and even connect with anyone else enjoying Instagram.
I’ve got some posts set to pop off on schedule for the weekdays while I’m away. Internet is pretty good up there, I should be able to answer comments. However, I will be embracing Instagram and posting many photos from our adventures during the next 7 days, in lieu of posting them here. Enjoy your Independence Day!
