Sew-cation or Sewing Vacation

Springtime in the Rockies
I am in the middle of a "sew-cation". The weather has been dry and partly sunny the first two days so I did a little sewing but look at this view outside today. It could not be better sew-cation weather. This is not the type of weather I would pick for a regular vacation but absolutely perfect for a day to stay in and sew. It would be very nice if we got enough snow to bring our snow pack level to normal instead of drought.

Now that it is spring I have been dealing with a cold for the last couple of weeks. I got through early flu season, all through last fall and almost all winter until the very end and now I am just about over this awful cold.That is why I just did not get a blog out last week. Which brings me to what is on my mind this week. Google has decided there will be no more Google Reader. I read and subscribe to a lot of blogs. I love the ability to have everything I am interested in available any time I have time to read it cached in one place and not causing the email box to overflow. 

There are several other services available that will collect the feeds, but I am still researching them and have not yet decided which one will be best for me. Which feeds do you use? To keep from losing readers I will add a few things to my blog too. Like a better way to comment.  Thanks to Karen at http://sewmanyways.blogspot.com/ I have finally figured out how to add the comment box. Now that it is here. I would love to hear from you. I have also added a way to subscribe via e-mail. I am thinking about adding a google+ option too, but give me a little time to think about that one.

Happy Spring! I hope you have time to work on all of your fun projects.
