Gosh, so much yarn and garden love! What a joy it's been reading your replies to my last post.
I was asked recently to contribute one word to a 'What is blogging?' word cloud, and because comments really are the best bit I chose 'conversation'! If only I had the hours in the day to respond to each of you personally every time you visit. Instead I endeavour to reciprocate by commenting on your blogs as often as I can, and emailing those without a blog where possible. But when comment numbers here start to hit the 50s it can become a wee bit difficult to keep up with you all. Like trying to follow exactly what everyone's saying at a knit and natter for half a hundred people!
Thankfully there were only twelve at yesterday morning's knit and natter at Stash, and an adorable seven month old who came along with his mum. What a poppet he was, all smiles and cuddles. It was all rather jolly ... chatty knitters drinking coffee and nibbling home baked cookies to the sound of needles clicking and ... torrential rain falling outside. Well you didn't expect me to say the sun was shining did you ?!
At least all this precipitation is keeping things green and growing, but with the unseasonably chilly temperatures the year seems to be moving inordinately slowly toward high summer. Did I tell you I eventually heard our cuckoo? He's only been singing at first light so no wonder I was missing him. I doubt we'll be hearing tomorrow's dawn chorus though ... it's blowing a gale here and today's rain is as heavy as yesterday's and forecast to fall all night. The lanes hereabouts will be under water by morning! Anyone know how to build an ark?
So, what's the weather like where you are? And which word describing the essence and the art of blogging would you add to that word cloud?
