I've been blogging for over a year now. I'm not sure what kind of a blogger I am. I love to visit blogs that are all about their families, recipes, travel, food storage, organization, photography and totally off-the-wall crazy blogs. (you know who I'm talking about)
I've learned a lot and laughed a lot and even sat in front of my laptop screen and shed tears over some of the stories others have shared. I've decided that I love bloggers and have been inspired by them.
I'm not sure what category I fit under, mostly I'm random, rarely inspirational and usually quirky. I like posting pictures of my family, but have been known to post pictures of my garbage can. I have some envy issues that I'm working on.
Today was a day I was inspired.
Thank you Cherie. I loved your 45 things post, it was profound and I needed to read it....today.
I think Cherie is awesome and some day I'm gonna meet her.
I also was inspired by this post yesterday when Farmergirls Market talked about Fall being a favorite season. How Fall allows us to slow down. Read it, you won't regret it.
So, I finally decided it was time to put the Patriotic decorations away. Just because they are up doesn't mean that summer is still here. Summer is gone. This has been a summer that I'm glad is gone. It's been a difficult one and I'm glad to move onto another season. So with excitement I put up Fall stuff. My fall decorations are my favorite.
My favorite area is our fireplace mantel. My jack-of-all trades hub built this brick wall to surround our woodstove. He had no clue what he was doing, he just started doing. He did the mantel. I love the mantel.
This cute sign says: "If the broom fits........."
It's so me.
(PS: Do NOT under any circumstances click on the picture to enlarge the photo. I forgot to dust the fireplace)
He did the mantels in our windows too as he replaced the windows. He's really good at remodeling, if I have the patience enough to wait for the various projects to get done. (the record for a project was a totally unusable bathroom for 528 days)
These are two cute little wall hangings that I sewed many years ago. Some day I will do wall hangings for every holiday.
(PS again: You are allowed to click on the pictures to see how cute, that wall is washed of handprints)
Even though my Fall decorations are up I have this urge to burn my favorite candle in the world.
Christmas Wreath is the BEST smelling candle on the planet.
Am I conflicted?
So what kind of blogger am I? Uhm, probably one that needs Ritalin.
What kind of a blogger are you?
(You clicked on the pictures to see how dusty the fireplace was didn't you?)
