Blog lovin’ …

it’s a funny old business, isn’t it?

I guess if you’re here reading this, then you must browse through blogs, or use twitter, or find an image on Pinterest that takes your fancy and follow the links back to find out more.  There are so many questions I’d like to ask you …

  • How did you get here?
  • Do you follow blogs?
  • Are photos important – what do you like to see?
  • What topics interest you?
  • What inspires you to leave a comment?

I tend not to follow blogs.  I bookmark them into a ‘Blogs’ folder and then when I have a spare few moments, I trawl through my list to see what everyone’s been up to.  Posts delivered directly to my email inbox don’t work for me.  I want to keep emails and blog posts separate.  Maybe it’s a throwback to my working days as I associate emails with working days when, as a teacher my time was constantly interrupted by messages popping up that had to be dealt with frantically between lessons or at the beginning or end of the day – it’s hard to break old habits and perceptions.

Visitors pop over here from all over the world – isn’t technology amazing? Today alone visitors from 12 countries have popped by –

Hello  Hallo  Hi   Guten Tag  Hola   Czesc

Thank you for coming to visit me


What shall I say today?

the weather :: rainy and dull;
the collies :: asleep (it’s still quite early);
Flora Puddleduck :: pecking at the back door;
my home :: quiet, lit by soft lamps, cool, still;
my mood :: serene, peaceful, calm;
my plans today :: ‘Melody Maker’ – pinned and quilted and maybe by this evening ready to sew around the binding edge;
trip out :: certainly a walk with the collies later on and maybe a jaunt to town, though I don’t need to buy anything;
cooking :: yesterday’s surviving home-made pasties but will they survive until tonight’s dinner?
Best take something out of the freezer!

That’s it – that’s life.  It doesn’t sound very exciting when I write it down, but I feel fulfilled and happy.  I’ll steal a few minutes every so often to pop by and read some other blogs and maybe leave a comment.  Rather like popping round to a friend’s house for a quick chat but without having to go out of my home.  I wouldn’t like to only have cyber friends – my blog and emails are a way of letting my friends know what I’m up to but it doesn’t take the place of a good chat with my friends when we meet up or chat online or gossip on the good ol’ telephone – do you remember when that was the only way to talk if you weren’t really there?  Remember letters?  I LOVE receiving a real letter, or card full of news.

So, if you do pop by here, please do say Hello.  What are your plans for today?  What projects are you working on, or planning? What are your thoughts on blogging?  Do let me know and have a chat!

  • I live in New England and the winters are wicked long so I started blogging a couple of years ago. I read blogs about gardening, quilting, or travel mostly and enjoy exchanging comments with regular readers or bloggers. Sounds like your life is just the way you want it to be, and that is definitely a good thing. 🙂


  • We are going to have another snowstorm today. It kind of takes over your life! School vacation here so going away for a couple days but taking sewing w me.


  • adaliza says:

    Enjoy your away time and your sewing. I’m still sort of hoping for a bit of snow but not as much as you’re having.


  • Ps. I use Blog Lovin and it is pretty good. Not for all blogs but for some. I get yours via email which I prefer!


  • adaliza says:

    Thank you for popping by. We have a few early signs of Spring – snowdrops and tulips showing through and the winter honeysuckle is in full bloom. My gosh it’s wet though – raining again today.

    I am retired, living in the center of Southern Ontario, Canada. Some days are busy. Today will be a rest day, two newspapers, three crosswords and a word jumble. I need to come up with a theme, and compose my next blog-post. I’m too old to be in the “connected generation” so I keep blogs and emails separate. I blog, and read others’, to keep a social connection that I no longer have at work. I publish every-day happenings posts like yours, and tag them “That’s Life”, which is how I discovered yours. 🙂


  • Sooz says:

    How did you get here? I follow you using Feedly

    Do you follow blogs? Yes.
    Are photos important – what do you like to see? I like photos particular of craft things, scenery is not so important to me.

    What topics interest you? Anything crafty/cooking.

    What inspires you to leave a comment? Not much sadly, I do like to read blogs without leaving comments, it doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy the blog, I do, I just don’t feel theres a need to reply often. As a blogger myself I take it that no one is reading when no one comments, but I know that is far from the truth.


  • adaliza says:

    Hi there – it’s lovely to hear from you. I hadn’t heard of Feedly, so will have to go and investigate! Hoping to visit that amazing mill shop again this year too!


  • adaliza says:

    Hi – thanks for popping over. I’ve enjoyed reading your very amusing blog posts – great style! I also live in a home full of dictionaries – they make great Xmas presents for the ‘man-who-has-everything’ aka my husband!!!
