I was talking the other day to B, the person I recently started dating. He remarked how he was on to see how much longer his subscription ran for and saw that someone in New York, someone with a 25 acre homestead, had looked at his profile. I laughed because he figured out quickly that I was showing him off to Jordan when I visited her last weekend. I hadn't been checking the site recently, and was happy to hear he hadn't been either. So far so good in that regard, fingers crossed and all that - I enjoy his company a lot.

Well, this made me think I should check my subscription status, because those nice folks at Match will renew one's subscription automatically for you if you don't cancel within the time frame of your current subscription. You know, because they are out for your best interests and want to help. Anyway, I log on and my subscription was set to expire that day. Yea! Good timing. So I canceled it.

It's funny how it felt like a significant step. "I'm not re-upping with Match because I want to see how things go with this new person". I admit that in this last round of dating, since I got out of the long distance relationship, I met a couple of people and found myself continuing to peruse the site. This time, I didn't feel compelled to keep checking and I think that's a good sign.

In other news, we have had RAIN! It's Sunday morning, and it's been rainy with little breaks since Friday night. Mr W and I are supposed to go to a Rockies game today, and I don't know if that's going to happen. The weeds made a big push for dominance while I was gone, and I continue to be amazed at how the bindweed can grow through over a foot of dirt and pop out the top of my raised beds. Those are easy to pull, though, and the wet soil has made weeding less of a big deal than it sometimes is.

And finally, a blog friend, Claire over at Little Farm.Growing has had a heck of a spring on their small farm, between hailstorms and a recent flash flooding event. If you can, go over and say hi. They have had a tough time of it and could use the support.


  1. Thanks Linda. Glad to hear you're back safe and things are going well!

  2. I noticed that B had looked at my profile, but figured it was from a conversation, or would lead to a conversation. Glad to hear things are going well!


Hi, sorry to make the humans do an extra step.
