Excellent points re multi-tasking in your blog.
I hate not having a person's full attention, when I am talking with them. I guess that is part of my teaching background.
However, it filters down to everything in life. Just like a garden,
different things require different handling and you can't do two

Kudos to you and your blog, Kanelstrand. I like your photos!
