Before I go on with my story..which is just below this post, I just wanted to say that...THE BLUE RIDGE GAL has begun a new post called NICKLE CHERRY COKE and takes you on a journey back to the 1950's through the 70's. If you love history as I do, give it a peek. Her pictures are fantastic.
A sweet blogger friend of mine once told me.."This is YOUR blog. You can write what you like." But as I told Kathleen from RURAL MAINE LIFE, "I am sure you have heard the rather new saying, "dance like no one is watching and sing like no one is listening"..well, blog like no one is reading. This is our space to create, vent, show off, give our opinions and so on. I am in no contest here. As they used to say in the Old West, there is always a faster gun. At first I thought, I cannot do this! My home is not all that pretty, I don't have a huge talent for decorating..nor am I that crafty. I am..an average older, now gray haired Grandma and Great Grandma and I do love to show my little finds from thrift stores.
I am having fun. I am afraid I have no special recipes to share..but..you all know where you can go to find those and so do I! ~smile~
For perfection in decor, for posts to make us laugh, for gorgeous photographs..we all know where to go and soak up beauty. For a rip roaring motorcyle trip and a good laugh, and common sense that will amaze and delight, you just might want to try WORDS OF WISDOM FROM A SMART MOUTHED BROAD! For low key comfort, coziness and caring..there is always SWADDLE COTTAGE ..and the list goes on and on. My thanks to Debbie, AliceMary, Joanne, especially to Christer and so many of you. You add so much to my life every single day, and to bj and Penny and Patti. What a rich tapistry of people that write on here. There are blogs for everything...and I am sure there are even the ones that are a wee spicy. It is all on here. As all of us have..there is our favorites list that says who we love to follow. What a great thing we have going here.
I have to smile because the people pleaser in me wanted to...keep up. I can't. I am doing my best..and that has to be enough. I had to realize..I don't HAVE to keep up..so I am doing what interests me. My daughter Dawn once wrote a little song..and one of the lines in it went like this:
It is ok to feel the fool..
You can join in there are no rules,
So relax and smile...
Sing and dance awhile..
You'll be surprised to see..
So in a sense I am singing and dancing my heart out.
Besides...and this is the important part...I have the most WONDERFUL followers ever!
In my mind and heart, you all have wings! Thank you for being there, for reading and for giving me the courage to stay with blogging. My continued story is below if you are still interested...and thanks.
