In the spirit of Christmas and the Advent Calendar that has been revamped and re-purposed in myriad ways, I have decided to do one of another sort. Instead of taking one chocolate per day (or wine or whatever goodie is in vogue) or adding one item into a box to donate for a good cause (a very good thing, indeed) I have chosen to send a little love to my favourite blogs.
Day 13 – Jots From a Small Apt.
I am including Ms Raye’s blog because I love this woman to bits. She hasn’t written a thing in months and deep down, I have that dream, that wish, that she will again. At least I can see her occasionally on Instagram!
A few years ago, I ended up in an “Irish” blogging circle, Jean, Mick (John), Patsy (none of whom blog anymore, or at best, only once in a blue moon)… and through John’s blog, I met Raye. You see, they did a collaboration: she had taken one of his photographs and done her version of it in watercolour. Beautiful. Then I read the repartee between her and John and next thing I knew, I was totally stalking her. Smart, witty, funny, sarcastic, poetic, tongue-in-cheek… I could go on an on.
Not only does this woman paint beautiful pictures, she can write. Boy can she write. It’s probably not fair to you readers that she has chosen to spend more time with her roses and paintbrushes now, but this is my Advent Calendar and I am choosing to send love her way anyway.
To you RRR xoxoxo
