So I have started this blog to share all things creative. I would love it, if you are creative as well, to share some of that with me and I will post it here! If you have a blog you would like others to read, send me a message and I will post that here as well!
Today when I woke up, I thought I was going to be working in my craft room on some Valentine goodies for an upcoming sale of mine. Then a friend called, and we talked on the phone longer than I thought. So I gave up on the idea to go work downstairs. Instead, I decided to bake!
So I started with some banana loaf, one of our household favorites!
Oh how I hate when this kind of mess happens!
And yes I do take pictures of allot of things. After all I am a scrapbooker, and strange things go on in my house all the time. I have three cats and a dog, so often, this is what I walk into when I walk into a room....
Angel sneaking in to my daughters drawer (which she left open again!)
Harvey taking a nap under my covers! How he gets like that, I do not know!
And sometimes I see the cats being not so nice to my dog Duke.....
Harvey giving Duke a swat!
I have to admit that I thought blogs were a funny sort of thing! I didn't quite get why people wrote them, nor why people followed them. Now I get it. I am sure it is different for everyone, but universally it is a great way to share. Now, I am a regular reader of a few great blogs, I contribute to some blogs, and I have two of my own. I write both of my blogs for different reasons, and I get a different sort of satisfaction out of writing each of them! I only wish I took up reading blogs when I worked full time. I always found it so hard to get my books read, but reading a great blog would have been a fabulous escape! Now, subscribing to follow a blog, is like getting a card or nice letter in your mailbox (instead of the dreaded bills!). I love to check my e mail and get a notice that one of my favorite blogs has a new post!
I have started the second part of my afternoon with another great escape, and that is a wonderful latte! I love the sweetness of perfectly steamed milk, with the dark richness of a perfectly pulled shot of Starbucks espresso!
Actually I like mine with 2 shots, no sweetness except the milk!
I am going to sit on my chair with a cat in my lap, and count the minutes until my daughter bursts through the front door, home from school (and likely with a friend in tow) and starts asking me if we can do this, and do that and then can we do the other thing. Then I will hear her grumble when I burst her bubble and tell her we have some homework to do after her snack!
Thank you so much for reading, I hope you will choose to follow my blog, share your creativity here as well and choose to stay connected to someone today, in a world that keeps us disconnected so often!
