Or, should I call it .... little things...?
A year ago yesterday was the beginning.... does anybody check way back on a blog to see why or how it began? I do. Many times I find a blog that interests me and I do a lot of background reading... What fun it's been with my own...and how quickly a year can pass. Well, that always has to come with some qualifications doesn't it? Some days it seems as though time speeds by and at others...like when we are waiting for something special or important...it takes fooorrrreeevvvver..... but, over all, time does zip past (for me anyway)
Many bloggers say they find it difficult to come up with ideas for entries.... not me....I'm easily amused..... love the little things and seem to find them in every nook and cranny of my life. My days are filled with dozens of them. My personal theory is that most folks, for whatever reason, just fail to notice them. Too busy? not observant? can't see the forest for the trees? plenty of reasons I guess. I amuse myself further by documenting some of my own little things, little thoughts, or little ideas... I've also been enjoying trying to get some good pictures .... or some fun pictures...... whatever the day brings.
Here is one of my latest little things. I am baking my own bread now. For years I had "yeastphobia" or something... I didn't dare to try anything with yeast...who knows why. A blog about bread baking changed my mind.... put it at ease...and now...I love baking bread! Oh, the aroma!! the taste...the real taste of real bread! We ran out of home made last week and somebody referred to store bought as flannelette bread. Hahahhah...good one.
I'm not very prolific with my dolls and bears, (I am a bit lazy... okay, a lot lazy) but absolutely love making them when I get going on one. Sharing the pics and any bits of that learning process has been fun too... who knows, some of it might help somebody doing the same. Here is the latest.. I went to the local doll show last weekend...a lady was selling little babies and even a class on how to do them. I came home and tried it myself. This completed baby was a gift from a British doll maker... mine on the left is...uhm...er.... a bit less peaceful looking. Hahahah.... but it is not baked yet...so there is still hope.
So....that is my little thing for the day.... just breezing through to say "hi"... and singing "Happy Blogiversary to ME!" Plug your ears for sure! I can't carry a tune in the proverbial bucket! Now, I'm off out to enjoy a brilliant, sunny blue sky day.... check out my stubby bits of greenery in the garden areas... do a bit of clean up and see if I can figure what I might like to change with any areas this summer. Last year I was hobbling around with my foot in a cast and so wasn't able to play and dig in our yard.... ...couldn't even mow and I love mowing the lawn! There is plenty of work to be done out there now.... yikes!
And... Mr. BumbleVee is already out there .... having fun raking....so...I'm off. Have a great Sunday everybody!
