Fives

I'm finally getting around to answering this tag. Sorry it took me so long, TD! I just couldn't get past your Fall/Winter Checklist... I kept feeling like I should do something besides sit on my duff!

First the rules:

Remove the blog at #1 from the following list and bump every one up one place; add your blog's name in the #5 spot; link to each of the other blogs for the desired cross pollination effect.

1. Blue Stocking: http://bluestocking.typepad.com
2. Simply Coll: http://colleenscorner.com/blog
3. My Boutiful Life: http://billi-jean.com/thebounty.html
4. Today's Lessons: http://todayslessons.blogspot.com
5. Hind's Feet: http://hindsfeet.blogspot.com

Next: select four new friends to add to the pollen count. (No one is obligated to participate and anyone can play if they want to). (I'm making it five in keeping with five)
