A little corner of my home to show you :: I love this little plant, its' been on my table for about three months now, since sometime in March around the start of my blog and look, it's still managing to pop these delightful flower stems up. They really are lovely, such simple flowers and so undemanding of attention (I remember every now and again to give them some water from the jug at mealtimes), yet so uplifting. They remind me daily to be thankful for the little things in life that give such pleasure.
Dear, dear blog-readers, I am feeling a little emotional today. In the best possible way you understand. Not wailing and feeling unbalanced, but feeling exceptionally blessed and thankful for all the good things in my life right now. But I am not feeling especially wordy today :: sometimes I could write this blog with words tumbling out and not know when to stop, yet other times I find it hard to get the expression right. And this seems to be one of the hard times somehow.
I have so damn much to say and show you, I have posts and photos in draft all stacked up waiting to be finished and put out for you to share. Pictures of my new fire, my attic studio, my textile work, my gardening efforts. Yes, I had wanted today to show you some of my gardening efforts, the seeds I planted with Little Lady, the big pots of flowers beginning to bloom, my little back yard. But it will save for another day. Today I am giving thanks.
Let me show you these :: simple gifts from friends that mean so very very much. This small bunch of home-grown salad leaves that I ate for my lunch, given to me this morning by my friend K who grew them on her allotment and knew I would love them.
And these pots of home-grown seedlings (cornflowers and cosmos) given to me by Lovely C and already growing away nicely in my front garden, flower buds emerging.
I am so thankful for it all. I figure that I am probably an ok person if I am liked enough to be given salad and plants unconditionally by new found friends. And I am so thankful to be getting to know YOU, my lovely blog-readers who are sending me such lovely comments and emails, I am nearly blubbing with gratitude for it all. Aren't I just so damn lucky, jeez, I am fit to burst.
So to you all who stop by here each day, to those of you who comment (greatly appreciated) and those of you who are still unknown to me but are reading this, I am simply trying to say
x x x t h a n k y o u x x x
More normal stuff tomorrow (and the next day, and the next...)
See you then xx
