I'm afraid to say I do it quite often.
I was wondering where you were. I thought my blog had reverted to a no reply blog again. I thought my new contact form wasn't working. I thought.....well apparently I wasn't thinking.
It suddenly dawned on me that maybe, just maybe you might be in my Gmail. You see, I don't usually use my Gmail. I have my other email listed on my blog account and I do get email for my blog there. I do get replies from some blogs there, but apparently my Gmail is where the replies of those on Google+ go.
So please accept my humble apologies if you tried to contact me in the last millennium and I didn't get back to you. I will try to get into the habit of checking it regularly. I may tape a sign to my forehead so I will see it when I look in the mirror.
The surprise was this pot of daylilies.
Last year when I moved I dug up a few things from my garden and stuck them in pots. I knew I wouldn't be able to plant them in the ground here, and I really didn't have hope that any of them had survived the terrible winter we had. So imagine my surprise when I looked out a few days ago and saw them blooming.
Such a simple pleasure.
