welcome to a blog of note

030

It was kind of a crappy day, for all sorts of reasons that wasn't in my power to change, at least not today, and I had every intention to make a proper grump post on this day. When I learnt about this world of mine having become a blog of note *thank you blogger*, suddenly it felt a lot better. And I should probably play nice, be welcoming and friendly, not succumb to my inner grump.

So thank you, you who have already left the sweetest of comments (I am the kind of blogger who aim both to reply as well as pay a visit back, for sure) and you who hopefully will. I'm honoured.

So, to keep it reasonably short and sweet, welcome to my quirky, vegetarian world with plush cats, a loaf dog extraordinaire, lots of magic socks, colours, yarn, little outings, books, tea and cakes etc etc and so forth. All in all the stuff that makes life a bit better, brighter and lighter be it on sunny or melancholy days.

Yes those sad days, I have those too, and inevitable part of life and this world of ours, the way we treat our fellow beings and our planet often leaves me in despair. On those days I try and find comfort in matters and deeds of beauty and kindness. Which can always be found in a soft paw or a wagging tail. Preferably both.

Some days my life is black and white, but most days I try and see it in all its splendid colours of the rainbow, because colours, they truly do make my heart sing. As do one special loaf. Welcome, welcome all ~

Just started blogging last friday. This really started interesting me lately so I'm kinda just clicking around trying to find interesting things to read. Admittedly, not my usual style but i kinda got into this to come across people who are a lot different to me yet i like or would find interest in their interests and yours seems sincere and pretty decent so good job and keep it up looking forward to reading more

Creative said...

I have skimmed through your blogs and you seem to be very creative like me. Did you toss pancakes today? On my blog I wrote the following:-

TOSSING PANCAKES

I tossed a pancake up in the air
But it landed on my brother's hair.
He cried but smiled when I gave him the pan
"YOU have a try - do as many as you can!"

I have written 7 books and these with lovely extracts are on my website www.marianbythell.com Take a look and let me know what you think. Cheers. Marian

Dear Pia

I have just discovered your blog through blogs of note and found it a treasure chest of inspirational photographs, bright enthusiasm and beautifully articulate writing. I love reading through your posts - you note that you enjoy reading and writing and this is certainly evident in your creative flair with words.

I am new (this week!) to the world of blogging and therefore a little naive. I would like to follow your blog and will when I can find the 'follow' button!

My own blog is my brave attempt to step out into the world and share some of the creative writing that I so enjoy but am prone to hiding behind closed doors. If ever you were to visit, I would certainly value your thoughts on any of my 'little ditties'.

Thank you again for such a wonderful read!
