It can be a blog about love or just a blog you love. As long as you give it some credit and share it with us it will be fine! This is also a great possibility to use the WordPress reblog button.

Please show us all those exciting blogs or posts that you love!

Oh! It is Friday again and I find Fridays task very hard! Because there are so many amazing blogs out there that I love. I just don’t want anyone to feel left out!  So here we go again decision time.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So  this  week   let  me  introduce you  to  Bear  at  Bearspawprint An  old  woman  getting older,  her  words  not mine!

BEARSPAWPRINT

I’ve been known by other names, but I am both Agawela and Bear, for now, and Bearspawprint is the sign that am leaving.

Bearspawprint is as a  shadow, a passing wind whispering words, a memory almost composed

Now and again I feel an urge to dance that youthful life dance, but really it is more nostalgia for the joy that comes when wonder flows and surges and requires expression.

I’ve been greatly blessed in this life.  I’ve been allowed to have adventures, see beautiful places, meet amazing people, hear incredible musicians, participate in joyous experiences, and care for children, experience love.  Once in while I am able to transcend my sorry mess of a self, and be free … and some of the rest of the time I can pretend.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Check out  Bear’s  About  page  here 

When I  first  met  Bear I  was in  a dark place  and  she recognized  this. In her  calm and  caring way  she  drew  me out  and  encouraged  me  to  experiment  and  expand  myself. Her  musical tastes  are  truly  eclectic an  she has  introduced  me  to  so  much.

Bear  has such  an open  mind  she has  listened  to  and  enjoyed  some of  my  musical  tastes  too! A few  years  back  Bear   encouraged  a  few of  us  to  join her in  what  started off  as  weekly  Music  themes we  all  enjoyed  and  stretched ourselves  here is  one  of  Bears   most  beautiful post  Death  and Rebirth   please  do  go  and  feast  your  eyes  and ears!

 

Then  there  are  bear’s  fabulous  conversations  with  Bump onna Log. Here is  how  Bear   explains this  section.

CONVERSATIONS WITH BUMP ONNA LOG  is composed of quotes from a composite group of not so fictitious persons. I will use actual quotes without permission. The BUMP ONNA LOG persona is composed of male, female, old, young, personally known, and merely overheard. No one will be personally identified. It may be that you will recognize some of these bits of dialogue and/or comments. If I quote “Bear”, mostly likely I really did say what I credit myself with saying, but maybe I didn’t.  I am sure there are those who would debate my recall.  If I misquote anyone, it is entirely my own fault, and maybe I did it on purpose, or even by accident.  *******************

and  here is  a sample.

5. CONVERSATIONS WITH BUMP ONNA LOG

.
.
BEAR:   Bump Onna Log, I forgive you….
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:   What for? I didn’t do anything.
.
BEAR:   … and I forgive you for not apologizing …
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:   Just forget it. It’s water under the bridge.
.
Bear:   I would feel a little bit better though, if you did apologize and …
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:   But there’s nothin’ for me to be sorry for. I didn’t do anything to be sorry about.
.
Bear:    I forgive you anyway ..
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:    I wasn’t aware that I did anything … You just exaggerate everything! You never listen to a word I say! (turning and starting to walk away) Mutter, mutter, mumble, heifer, mumble…
.
BEAR:    (hurrying to catch up and get in line of sight) I’m sorry, I was trying to listen, but I just didn’t hear what you said when you turned your back and walked away. Were you talking to me?
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:   What’s the use of even trying, you don’t ever pay attention, and that’s all your imagination!!
.
BEAR:   But I do want to know what you want to say to me.
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:    I don’t want to say anything! Now quit throwing it in my face! I told you, that is all your imagination. Bygones are bygones. Let it alone! There is just no pleasing you! (Turns to walk in a different direction) mutter mutter … I have to … mutter mutter… mutter work … mutter put up with … mumble …. inaudible
.
BEAR:    Do you want me to know what you are saying?  I  am able to  hear a word hear /here   (starts to giggle) and here …..
.
BUMP ONNA LOG:  You always make an argument out of everything ….

Love Is In Da Blog:Places We Love; Nonet

Bee at  Just fooling around  with Bee  said :On Thursdays, we travel and this week we really go for it: Countries we love . It does not need to be a country you have been to. Maybe you plan to go to your dream destination, or maybe you know you will never go there. But beware: next weeks will be about “fantastical places we love”. Of course you can go wild and do something entirely different. No matter what: share a photo, a story, a poem, a drawing, a travel report, travel information….. anything goes on #LoIsInDaBl but preferably something about LOVE! 🙂

Love Is In Da Blog: Wordless Wednesday Familiars

Today is Wednesday and Bee at Just Fooling Around with Bee said: I have prompted you to think about many aspects of love so far but one topic I have left out entirely. Maybe because right now we only have fish as a pet. Hopefully, soon we can invite a new dog though into our lives. But first things first: move and then we’ll see.
So today’s Wordless #LoIsInDaBl prompt is: Pets, familiars, animal spirits we love!
It doesn’t need to be a pet that you deposit in your wordless post. It can just be an animal you like, the familiar you live with, an animal spirit who guides you, your neighbours dog who cheers you up or the neighbours cat. Or you just put a photo up that you love or that you connect with love. Or please feel free to do something entirely different. You know #LoIsInDaBl is about creative freedom. Feel free to let your creative energy go wild!

Love Is In Da Blog: Teaser Tuesday

Well today is Tuesday and Bee at Just Fooling Around With Bee said:Taken from A Daily Rhythm)

As for today’s topic for #LoIsInDaBl:

A teaser from a classic love story (with or without broken hearts)

Let’s go sophisticated and remember what we were told to read in school. Or if you are a lover of classic literature then by all means share what you are reading now. Of course, you do not need to follow this prompt nor the Teaser Tuesday meme. Just write, draw, photograph, sing, dance, paint, crochet….. you get the gist …. about LOVE!

Tuesday for me is  always  very  very  hard!  Teaser  Tuesday should  be  renamed  Tuesday  Torment  for me!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am sorry  I  did  not  warm to  the Brontes, Charlotte, Emily  or Anne

I managed  to  side  step  them at  school and  to  be honest  I  still  am.

Poor Elizabeth Gaskell   I also  gave  her  the  swerve

She  wrote  some  famous books  so I  know I  have  some  nerve!

Shakespeare sent  me to  sleep  though I agree his plots were good

His  sonnets  sometimes  took  my  eye though  not  as much  as  they  should!

Now give me Hans Anderson  and  his  fairy tales and  the  Brothers  Grimm

Their stories  really captured my  heart and  that’s where  Da Love comes in!

Then  Tolkien  and  and C.S. Lewis   helped my  imagination fly

I think the  classics are  not  for  me, you may  be  asking  why

Fairies, Elves, Vampires, Warewolves and  heroes are  what I desire

The  otherly  and  fantasy  have  always been what sets my  soul on  fire!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Once a King in Narnia, always a King in Narnia. But don’t go trying to use the same route twice. Indeed, don’t try to get there at all. It’ll happen when you’re not looking for it. And don’t talk too much about it even among yourselves. And don’t mention it to anyone else unless you find that they’ve had adventures of the same sort themselves. What’s that? How will you know? Oh, you’ll know all right. Odd things, they say-even their looks-will let the secret out. Keep your eyes open. Bless me, what do they teach them at these schools.”
-The Professor”
C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

 

“To the sea, to the sea! The white gulls are crying,
The wind is blowing, and the white foam is flying.
West, west away, the round sun is falling,
Grey ship, grey ship, do you hear them calling,
The voices of my people that have gone before me?
I will leave, I will leave the woods that bore me;
For our days are ending and our years failing.
I will pass the wide waters lonely sailing.
Long are the waves on the Last Shore falling,
Sweet are the voices in the Lost Isle calling,
In Eressea, in Elvenhome that no man can discover,
Where the leaves fall not: land of my people forever!”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

 

There I  think  I  just  winged  this one.   😉

Love Is In Da Blog :Do you love mindfulness

Well here  we  are  into  3rd  week  of  Love Is In  Da Blog and  Bee at  Just Fooling Around  With Bee said : Today I want to keep it simple. Or maybe it is not simple if you haven’t come into contact with “Mindfulness” so far.

Before I go to today’s prompt I want to quote Colleen over at “Silverthreading” who gives us the brilliant “Mindful Monday ~ Healthy Living” meme: ” I have found that being mindful encompasses the act of being watchful, aware, wary, heedful, alert, careful, or attentive, in whatever area in my life I feel it applies to, as I attempt to live in the present.”

I think that is a brilliant description of what Mindfulness might mean.

So today’s prompt is

Do you love Mindfulness?

Some food for thought here even though it does not directly fit in with Colleens “Healthy Living” topic.

Now my friends go and get your thinking boots on 😉

If we were having Coffee: I would  remind  you  that  there  are lots of  other  coffee mornings  all shared  and organized  By  Diana  and  Gene’O  over at,Part time monster

Do join in

Come on  in  it is nice  to  sit  and  have a  chat  after  all  the  hustle  and  bustle  of  the past  few days.   I  can  still entertain  you  all  with tea  and coffee  from all over  the world not to mention all our cakes  and muffins  and  as Paul  calls  them sweets! Every single  one  is  calorie  free! Plus of course  we now have spirits  and liquors  to warm the coldest of  you.

If  we are  having  coffee :  Okay  I  shall have  to  start  by  apologizing  for  being  late  this  week. But  it has  not  been a  good  day, or  a brilliant  week  for  that  matter. Today  I  am  afraid  you  will  all have  to  get  yourselves  comfy  and  help  yourselves  to a  drink  and  while you  are  at  it  could  someone  get  me  a  strong   black  coffee.

You  see I  am  holed up  here  on  the  sofa  with  my  leg up, with  an  ice pack! … Why I hear  you  ask, an  ice pack? Well if  you  are  all in possession  of  a hot  drink  and  something  to  eat I  shall explain!

I have  a  very  painful knee, I  am  waiting  for  physiotherapy  on  the NHS   to  treat it   but  the pain  has  got  so bad  that right  now I  am in  the  middle of  private  treatment   because  I  am desperate. I had  my  first  appointment  Tuesday, the  physio  after  asking  loads  of  questions  investigated  my  knee, found  the  pain OUCH! pulled  me  about  for  a  while after  which  she  used  some ultra sound on  the  knee, then strapped  me  up and  asked  me  to  RICE  = Rest, ice, compress and  elevate until  Thursday…. all of  which  I  did. I  had  to  return  on  Thursday when  she  removed the strapping, gave  me  some  more ultra sound  treatment  and  she  also  gave  me  some  exercises  to  do .I have  to  carry  on  with  the  rice  and  return  again  next Thursday !

 

If  we are  having  coffee :  I would  ask  you  if  you  need  anything  else?   What  else  have  we  done  this  week, we have  been  very  busy  this  week  visiting  the  MIL( Mother in  law)  and  also having her  over  here  to visit. Friday  we  took her  to  see  the Hematologist, Oncologist. Well  as  we already  knew  the  Lymphoma  was back  but the  good  news  is  that  the  cancer has  not  spread  and  is  just in  one place  from  the  neck  to  the  shoulder. The Dr. offered two options no treatment prognosis approximately 6 months to live or Antibodies and Chemo. Antibodies and Chemo is best option so she has gone for that. The  Dr seemed positive that treatment would slow the cancer down and could give her a couple more years of quality life she explained this would be a milder treatment to avoid nasty side effects, considering MIL will be 96 years old in two months we think that that is a very positive outcome. The MIL was very pleased with the prognosis though now she is very up and down with emotions. I am not surprised with all the worry of the last few weeks she is bound to be so!

If  we  were having  coffee: I would  tell that  as I have  had  to  rest  my  knee  we have  not  really  done  much  this  weekend! so  there is  nothing  really  to  report!

OH!  Yes  we  have  finally  got  our  new Fridge  freezer  into  the  cupboard  made  just  for it in  our  new  kitchen! Now  we  have  the  work tops  sorted,  the  plinth  heater and  fridge  freezer  in  place I  think  we can say  we  are  finally  done  it  has only  taken  us  since  the  beginning  of  October!!

I have  been  busy  keeping up  with Love Is In Da Bog  organised  by  Just fooling  around  with Bee  Imagine  a whole  fortnight done  already!

wp_20150130_009.png

If we  were  having  Coffee:  I would  have  to  say  we  are  all  sill  waiting  patiently   for  our  dear  Paul  Curran   to  rejoin us here at  the  coffee  share   but  until he is  well enough  and up  and  running again  we  shall  have  to  bide our  time!

For  now  everyone  Be  well  and  happy!

Love Is In Da Blog :Song Lyric Sunday 3

For  Love Is  In Da Blog on Sunday  we join  up  with Helen Espinosa at This  life one  word at a time.

Just fooling around  with  Bee said : Sunday’s are of course reserved for her meme and as it is Valentine’s Day I suggest as prompt:

A song you connect with a loved one

It doesn’t need to be your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, fiance, fiancee. There are many sorts of “loved ones”: children, friends, aunts, uncles, grandparents… you get the gist.

However, you can do a song and the lyrics and connect with Helen’s Song Lyric Sunday.

Right I have  found  this  weeks  song impossible  to  pick  so  I  am  breaking  the  rules  and  picking  more  than  one !

The  first  song  is  about  Mother  Love, it is  the  most beautiful  song  I  have  ever  heard. Again it  is  by Imogen Heap . I  think it  is  because  it is  written  from  the  heart. As  a  new  mother  she  truly  encapsulated  the  love,  the  exhaustion, the  endless  responsibility  of  being  a  new  Mum!

 

IMOGEN HEAP LYRICS

“Tiny Human”

Oh my tiny human
At 05:08 you break me apart again
The space-time continuum
Buckles and bends around your every twist and turnI can barely remember life before
You came crashing in on one day
Crazy beautiful you
Blind me like the dawn
After ashes fell on Pompeii
Crazy beautiful youA miracle, a mystery
And one short stop away
From joy to misery
When the night becomes day
I give you my every last ounce
You make a pin-cushion out of me
And you can thank me later, babe (if I’m alive)
How long can one live without sleep?Still I can’t stand to imagine
Life without…
You came crashing in on one day
Crazy beautiful you
Blind me like the dawn
After ashes fell on Pompeii
Crazy bright beautiful you

Suddenly propelled
So many light years from bliss
And completely unprepared
How can anyone deserve this?
I’ve tried, I’ve tried all the tricks in the book, I’m at my wits end
Now look here what do you want from me!?

I can barely remember life before…
You came crashing in on one day
Crazy beautiful you
From the ashes of Pompeii
To fireworks and champagne
Crazy beautiful you

You little devil, you
Oh I love you so much
It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done
But you’re so worth it
Yes you are
Yes you are
You little devil, you

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I love  every  line  of  this  song,  thank  you  Immie
