An Apology And An Announcement

Mr. Phillips: Let us not have tears; partings are a natural part of life... To ease the pain of this news, I have glad tidings. We shall adjourn early this afternoon, make our way to the Spurgeon farm, where Moody's parents have consented to host a celebration in honor of my departure.
Moody Spurgeon: Nobody told me.... eh, heh.
~Anne of Green Gables

First of all, I should like to apologize to all of you who were fooled by my April Fool's Day post yesterday.  Obviously, the point of the post was to fool you and perhaps make you laugh, but I honestly never thought anyone was really going to take me seriously!  "I am sorry to cause pain to anyone, but it was most unconsciously done, and I hope will be of short duration."  However, I must say that I was quite touched by your expressions of regret at my "departure" and I assure you that I have no plans to stop blogging anytime in the near future.  (And I might add that Melody, who I always thought was my friend, seems quite capable of getting on nicely without me, and that my Sister Dear appears to be planning a celebration in honor of my departure, and that Ally thinks I'm horrid and has already sustained two heart attacks.  Ahem.)

Moving on... 
my sister Anne-girl is hosting a Hero Week at her blog, Scribblings Of My Pen, at the end of April!  She's provided some lovely buttons to advertise the event, and since I couldn't decide which I liked best, I'm posting three of them here. :)  Click on the buttons to go to her blog and read all about it!

You know... lots of us have the middle name 'gullible'. THREE jokes were played on me yesterday, and I believed every one of them! Haha. But once I got over my heart attack and read the comments, I thought it was a great joke:)

Melody said...

Hahaha, you know perfectly well I can't get along without you, Mousie, nicely or otherwise. ;-) For pity's sake, people might take THAT seriously now, haha.

Hero Week looks interesting!

I just found your blog yesterday, and it was a bit disappointing to think there wouldn't be any more, before I realised what the date was. Phew! What a relief.

I've answered your Anne of Green Gables tag questions which you can find at

Great blog, following now.

HA!!! Too funny! I didn't get online yesterday, though... (Got some tricks played on me... lol)

Glad you're still with us! Alexandra, you can breathe again....

The first blog button is awesome... the second has me laughing :)

I am most exceedingly glad you will not stop blogging in the immediate future. If you did I would be gravely disappointed indeed. :(

It was an awesome day and one I won't forget in a while. And next time I won't be on my guard. Yeah, you read that right. Because I am so gloriously gullible. I think it's another trait Marguerite and I share. Cuz she kind of is extremely gullible. 'Specially in the first few books. Yup.

And you know my sentiments on Hero Week. And how totally and extremely amazing that second button is. Yup. I must post it posthaste. No pun intended.

I completely forgot it was April Fool's Day and everyone fooled me...somehow it didn't strike me as strange that lots of bloggers were all giving up blogging on the same day :P
