Best laid plans



So I had this plan: Get back to blogging somewhat regularly, and especially
about my little (big) garden. I was thrilled that blog friends still remembered me
and responded to my posts. And then my f****ing phone camera died.
Actually, it didn't quite die, it's doing something weirdly spastic and poltergeist like
where it's flipping on and off rapidly and taking strange striped purple pictures.
As I'm writing this I realize it shouldn't come as a surprise - I did smash the screen
to pieces a few months ago. And the supernatural thing - well, I've been asking for it ;)

I am pretty busy right now, and I have to figure out if I should just get a new phone.
I feel fortunate that money isn't such an issue anymore, that sudden expenses
don't gut me and keep me up at night anymore. Having a job is a great comfort to me.
But, my darlings; It will be another few weeks before I really get back to blogging.
In the meantime I will visit all of you, I promise. I miss you guys!

  1. Awww,we don't visit *just* for the pictures! But, I understand your frustration. Life has a way of sometimes kicking you in the shin.

    1. Agreed, I have seen your writings about your house kicking your ass right now and I'm very sorry :(

  2. Ouch, sucks that it's broken.
    Regardless if your posts have pictures, I find it quite nice to read what my interweb friends are up to.
    Though I feel you. I have a difficult time with telling myself that I am boring if I am not posting about my sewing or crafting, and flooding my posts with pictures of progress.

    Well, I look forward to continue reading your posts; just bare in mind the ol' mantra quality over quantity! Screw regularity if you're just not feeling like posting for the sake of posting ;)

    1. Thank you, dearest!
      I don't feel the need to post tons of pictures but I like a balance in my posts. Too much text floods the vision, too many pictures and you just start to scroll by them.
      Ps. Your creations are amazing, and I love your posts!

  3. Yikes, I'm sorry about your phone. But, at least it's taking purple striped pictures? A new phone might be in order, unless, you can get it repaired?

    I'm glad you have a job and things sound like they are going well. That's such good news. I am going to miss reading your blog in the interim, but look forward to reading it again soon. *hugs*

    1. I went all out on the phone I got a year ago, but that means repairing it will be almost what it's worth now... I would probably get one just like it though, I love my phone.

  4. Hiya, so happy to see you back, sorry I'm a bit behind times, I've only just twig that your back. We seem to be on the same journey, I keep trying to get back to blogging and away from FB but been missing from my normal home as I kept trying new blogs out and none seem to fit right. Just gone back to my old blog, going to try and revamp it so it's more me. I'm loving your new blogging theme and set up, purple and black have a good vibe together. Hope you can get your phone fixed soon. <3

    1. Yes, the social media has a way of sucking you in and then repulsing you back out from time to time. I think part of why I stopped blogging for a while was that I didn't feel I had anything to write about, I was at a standstill atm. But things are different now :)

  5. It always sucks to lose a phone's capacity to take and send pictures. But now you can focus on the text and force your readers to actually read your blog. I often think we rely too much on pics in the blogosphere and I am considering doing a week without pics.

    1. As I wrote in reply to another comment, I like a balance between words and pictures. One or two accompanying pictures usually makes for a more compelling post, in my opinion. But I may be forced to join you in your endeavor right now :)

  6. Well, at least the strangeness is purple.
