First - Dancing in the Weeds - this name resonated with me as my garden has been left untended and is now a mass of the things (the product of a warm winter and a very wet spring over here in England). Dancing blogs about her creative life outside of her life of work - something I think we all need and I found many of her back dated blog posts to be uplifting and thoughtful - I particularly liked some of the artwork she has done.
Onto Polar Bear on the Loose http://polarbear60.org/ where her latest post resonated with me in what my future life might hold - adjusting to actually living with husbands after decades of marriage!! The actual blog title is Rantings and Ravings of an Insane Writer which probably would resonate with many of the A to Z crew and my own personal link to her would be the number of rescue cats she has!!
After that stopping off at Galeriaredelius http://galeriaredelius.wordpress.com/ I had no idea what I would find but was pleasantly surprised to find a blog about jewellery - I don't wear jewellery much (except brooches) but this blog has pictures of interesting pieces and talks about the design process which is something I am always really interested in.
And finally what would I be like if I didn't visit a post called Crazy Town in Looney Land on this week's trip? http://crazytowninlooneyland.blogspot.co.uk/ written by a team who in their own words blog about "Where the crazies from Undead in the Netherworld talk about Mental Illness" and why not I say. The more I do my job the more I see the need for counselling and access to mental health support for younger and younger children - if we don't talk about it then we won't affect a change in society.
Obviously, other blogs with unusual names have already been visited by me during the A to Z Challenge and as my road trip is to find new blogs signed up to the Road Trip I haven't mentioned them here sorry if you are one of them :(
Thanks for your visit, comment, and the mention here! Living with the husband for the first time after so many years of marriage is both exciting and disturbing. There will be trying times and it may take a couple of years (!) to get used to one another being there ALL THE TIME. But you, stuck it through the trials of separation and distance, so you'll find a way to get through the togetherness.ReplyDelete
I'm off to discover these cats you mention. :)
Thank you for your perspective - I think disturbing is probably a very good word to use!ReplyDelete
Thank you for the mention here. The knitted chickens are easily one of the most common search terms which bring people to my blog. Right now I'm working on some knitted bunnies but I'm not sure if they'll be anywhere near as popular.ReplyDelete
I think it's a lovely idea to share a list of the blogs you've visited and enjoyed. I'll be checking back here in the future. ;-)
Yes - I have seen your knitted bunnies in progress on your blog so can't wait to see the end result. I always seem to have a problem with the stuffing of toys particularly the neck (often too floppy) so any hints are always appreciated!ReplyDelete
I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a Liebster Award tonight .... a sort of daisy chain of words .. :)ReplyDelete
you can read more about it back at my blog . xDelete
Those sound like some pretty cool blogs. I'll have to check them out.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by :)Delete
