..............will I be ready?
You bet I will.
Waking to sun-filled mornings instead of cold rain
and grey skies will help.
Not having a wretched cold which has turned me into a hermit
this past week will be wonderful.
My GARDEN awaits.
My HOUSE needs TLC.
My LIST grows longer.
- Coming soon - small bathroom renovation
- Attic clean out
- General house 'Spring Clean'
- Furniture painting projects
- Front porch re-do
- Potting shed organization and clean
- Pruning and trimming shrubs
- Removing Winter mulch
- Mowing grass
..............and a whole lot more I'm sure.
Meanwhile today is time for a little celebration....it's six years since I stated blogging. Where did the time go? A lot has changed in the world of blogging since then......it was much smaller, quieter, more intimate and easier. I have loved it mainly for the special friendships formed, many of which continue to this day, not only via the Internet but face to face in several instances. It's always such fun to meet blog pal in person and this year I hope to do more of this. I also love that it has become my creative outlet. It has helped me become a better photographer and see wonderful things in this amazing world through my lens which I failed to view before.
Thanks to all of you who take the time to visit here. Some of you leave a lovely comment, many of you e-mail me, some just look and hopefully enjoy what I share then move on as your days are busy. I appreciate you all more than you know. Now and then I think perhaps I'll discontinue blogging. There are now so many fabulous blogs out there, amazing women, and men, who do a much better job than me. Many have become almost legendary. Their readerships are huge, they show ads bouncing across the page bringing them an income. They display content gleaned from all around the world via the Internet. I don't want my blog to be one of those.....I just want to share my home, my garden, my travels, the little bits and bobs of this ordinary life which I enjoy each day. This blog will always be just my journal. I hope you will continue to stop by when you can..........the cottage door is always open and the old English teapot ready for a brew. I'll be here waiting.
