When I signed-off my last post I wasn't planning to blog until tomorrow - and I probably will post something over the weekend at some point, but I just had an urge to share things. Which is what blogging was made for after all , so here I am!
I just wanted to share a few ways in which the virtual sunshine is making itself felt here already.
Before work this morning I spent a while browsing the Month in Numbers Pinterest board where I pinned everyone's posts this week.
- I was really touched by just how many of you had visited one another's posts and left really great comments. If hadn't been in public, it's likely I'd have had a small weep! It really brightened my morning.
- What I think I love most about how so many of you joined me this month was how, while the initial idea was mine, the posts are most definitely yours and you're all fitting it into your own blogging and crafting adventures in oyur own way.
The second thing brightening my day was, believe it or not .. the sun!
- It's been divine here today. Cold, yes. But bright and sunny. I couldn't have hoped for better weather to welcome my series!
I was trying to take a photo of my view from my craftroom window [for a thing] when the camera focussed on a crystal hanging in front and I got this lovely shot instead. And look, the crystal's imperfect, a bit beaten up and showing signs of wear ... but it still sparkles and shines!
So I decided to leap over here, share those sunshiney things and also to bring forward a song I'd originally planned to share later on in the month: 'No Rain' by Blind Melon:
I was lucky enough to see them perform it live almost [and I'll say this bit quick, before I feel old] ... almost 20 years ago now, when they were supporting Guns N Roses at Milton Keynes Bowl. A day which ironically saw us all get soaked to the skin in a Great British summertime downpour!
[Although, naturally, I'm not counting happy tears ... or sniffling at your blog comments in this! Or there'd be no hope for me!!]
Oh and don't worry ... the costume worn by the Bee Girl in the video is not one of the yellow outfits I'll be suggesting you try out this month!
