Nicki E. for awarding me the lovely blog award! It sure is purty!
I want a cup of rose petals don't you? I roamed around looking at all the nice blogs that Nicki awarded this to and that wasted some time. Yikes. But now I have some more blogs to visit and that has to be good eh?
Here are five blogs I want to send this off to - if you have it - well OK - now you have it again AND as with all awards on this site - no obligations whatsoever to pass it on or post it or thank me. That is what a gift is, my ma taught me - without strings...
So five lovely blogs:
Burrowers Books and so on....
Straight from Hel
Thoughts in Progress
It's a Mystery
Through My Eyes
All of these are thoughtful, well written, sometimes deep, sometimes silly - always good to visit!
Thingy #2 -
I'm going to be on the road for the next two weeks - on and off - visiting farms in Nova Scotia and interviewing farmers and taking pictures. It is a dream job for me - a woman with Barn Heart (google it).
So that is to say that I won't be around as much....
Thingy #3 - I watched the newest Little Women last night on my computer in ten minute segments....ah well. It was good. I liked it but tonight maybe I'll watch the one with Katherine Hepburn. The point is that I realized while watching it how much that book is part of my heart. Lines that I've been saying for years that I had no idea of their inception were uttered "and I want Beth to have my turquoise ring" and just the utter identification with Jo and her temper and frustrations. It was revealing.
Thingy #4 - I saw a post in my morning wanderings that involved tagging people and answering questions and while I am slightly allergic to that one of the questions was interesting - it was 'what was your favourite compliment'. I'm not sure it is my favourite (as that is an odious distinction) but the one that went straight into my heart lately was from my dear old dad. When I was apologizing for the pain I undoubtedly caused him as a teenager (you don't need to ask why) he said 'on the whole you brought us much more joy than pain'. Thanks Dad! I appreciate that more than I have words for and you know I have no shortage of words...
All right - back to work...but first three pictures of my trip to Lunenburg with Felix and step-dot!
