The hits just keep on comin'

I was telling Patrice yesterday that Google Reader has completely sucked me in. I have 184 subscriptions to blogs -- thankfully most of them don't post every day -- and I keep finding new ones to add. When will I hit the wall at which I finally discover I've FOUND all the good ones already?

I don't know. But that day wasn't yesterday. I found a new obsession: Meadowbrook Farm.

Okay, first of all, great photography is like catnip to me. Second, talented home decorating is like, um, MORE catnip to me. And finally, blogs without a lot of drama are a whole nother level of catnip to me.

Now, I can buy into a whole lot of drama. Baby in the hospital? I'm on my knees praying for you. Husband in a bad car accident? I'm offering to bring you supper. Had to put your dog to sleep? I'm a Commenting fool. I am all about jumping in and letting you know that this little blogger is on your side. I'm appealing to the Lord on your behalf.

But I also need a little lightness in my Reader. I need a no-drama zone. And yesterday I stumbled upon Meadowbrook Farm, and I fell in love. Beautiful, every bit of it.

Here's a link to Teresa's About Me page if you're interested in learning more. And here's a small snippet of what you'll find there:
Hi, my name is Teresa. Nine years ago, I was a happily settled, cul-de-sac residing, suburban mom. I had Starbucks, shopping malls, and every other convenience known to man at my fingertips. Now I am a country girl living on a small farm 500 miles from the old neighborhood. My husband and I, along with our three boys, decided to leave the rat race behind for a slower pace and a simpler life. It was a leap of faith. 

Looking at the pictures of her boys and reading about their lives, I feel like she's living my future. I'm officially captivated.

Stop showing more blogs to follow! (lol)
I have tried to clear out my google reader (I have too many that I just scroll right past...) and can't get it to work! Grr! It's too hard to not follow new blogs, though, so I guess that number's just gonna keep creeping...

It took me a while to figure out that you can't just delete the feeds from blogs you actually Follow. You have to unfollow FIRST, then you can delete the feed.
