The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
So I’ve never done this before but that’s what blogging’s for.
If we were having coffee link ups are aimed at sharing with other bloggers. Here’s my thoughts for Just GeneO’
I’d ask for tea, most likely, ideally fresh mint tea. I like it with honey, if possible.
I’d like to talk about the achievements this last few days. In spite of dreadful, torrential, unpredictable, frequent bouts of rain, we’ve spruced up our house outside a great deal.
This isn’t something that happens very often as there’s always plenty to do with allotments and stuff.
It was all an accident. We had a new brush with wire in it. It was calling my name so we started on the mossy driveway.
coffee mint tea, I’d also find it impossible to mention the pride I have in reaching five hundred followers this week and my highest likes day on my blog. It’s a weird feeling imagining the five hundred people, who they are and why they chose to follow me.
It’s an odd thing blogging. I liken it to sitting in an empty room talking. But then apparently there’s people there who choose to hear you.
I suppose the having coffee idea is similar too. It’s disjointed but someone can choose to hear after the fact.
Is want to know what you think of that silent blogging voice. I think it makes me fearless as no one can interrupt. I haven’t actually given you a chance to get a word in.
I’d also want to ask over this cup of coffee what happens next. Your blog is a few months older than mine. Like a toddler I wonder what it can be expected to do in the next phase of it’s life.
I’d want to tell you all about the goji berry plant in the garden. In spite of the furious efforts of the chickens it’s managed to grow more leaves this last two weeks. So I think it will survive.
While the rain continues I’ve dedicated time indoors to renaming and attaching all the 1200 photos in my blog. I’ve also learned to watermark them without too much effort and wish that is started earlier. I also wish I’d worked out whether it’s the WordPress app or my chosen theme that isn’t attaching them automatically. That’s a puzzle that the internet hasn’t solved for me yet.
Meanwhile we also took some time out at a great sculpture museum and a botanical garden.
Both experiences in the fresh air and open space helped challenge the rain.
