Blog freeze

Playing musical statues had me in freeze mode which is the reason I haven't been blogging these past couple of weeks :) It was time well spent reflecting and being quiet. However, I think it's time to put the music back on and do a little shaking .So much to tell and share.

Firstly I'm glad daylight savings is over, It's the second year running of this trial we're having here , I don't understand why we have it here in Western Australia ( supposedly so we can be at par with the rest of Australia), but like come on... I wake up at 6 which in normal terms is 5 then I have to wait and hour and a half before the sun comes up because I don't like doing things in the dark. I end up going to bed at 12 coz it only gets dark at 9-ish which in normal terms is late and then I get really groggy sooo that explains the haywiredness of it all. Yes it's all about me, if I don't like it, it should be scrapped. Sounding super egoistically selfish right! Well actually truth be told, German researches have noted that the people of Perth are actually Guinea pigs in this whole daylight saving trial and the joke of the year is that they feel it could provoke Health Risks! The words Health and risk doesn't take a hypochondriacs' alert button to be flashing bright red. So I think being super selfish on this matter is so the way. Anyway, glad it's over for now and I get to say Good Morning Autumn! I look forward to the golds, bronze and ambers falling to the ground. Most of my plants are slowly dozing off, they look like I've abandoned them but I'm taking to advice given, let them sleep and do not interfere in mother nature taking its course. My favourite gardening tool is the clipper so you can let your imagination run wild there. I try to be super clever at Gardening and lets just say I'm learning. So did anyone take part in Earth Hour, well naturally for us here in Perth since it was still daylight savings. I didn't have to do without the lights, just turned off the tv and that was it. Hopefully we played our little part in conserving energy.Would love to hear stories of how Earth hour was played in your neck of the woods, so do tell.

I thought I'd update a little on the project by the Pink Artist. If you recall I had posted about it a couple of posts back. Well Monica who is spearheading this event is working on this gorgeous doll and she's sewn together all of our patches onto a skirt fit for a grand royal entrance. The Dolls name is Love Squared and it's just so nice to see all of the wonderful blogging artist collaborate together and I'm so happy I got to be a part of it. Cheers and much love to Monica for sharing this opportunity with the world.To see more of the dolls progress check out her weblog.

On another note. I guess many of you girls are participating in the Kentucky Derby Hat Swap. Well so am I. This is pretty exciting coz my swap partner Ginny has given me the choice of making her either a hat or tiara. Simply lost for choice. At least I have the colours and embellishments in tack so the crafting table should see me busy. It's been awhile since I've meddled on it. Shall update on the progress !

And to those who've sent me awards and tags . I accept them gracefully with a curtsy and super long thank you speech in tow. So dramatic ( drama teaching technique dies hard). Ok I'll spare you the long speech and simply say Merci for the beautiful thoughts.

There are so many things I'd like to go on to share ( just like the kid at show and tell who brings in one thing and then continues to interrupt every other kids turn coz he just has too much to share) Well I'll refrain from being that kid today. There are stories better left for another post. I look forward to continuing my encyclopedia of me meme and more featured friends. Just be patient and hang in there with me. Till next time...

Sending much autumn sprinkles,

Hey Adla, so nice to see you back, I was wondering where you were! What you have a life beyond blogging too, how ridiculous lol!!

Hey Adla, so good to hear from you again. I noticed you didn't publish for a while, even came here to check whether I had missed something. Good to have you back. We in Western Europe have changed the time this weekend. We went one hour forwards, so we slept too short this weekend, which will be noticeable (in my case) the whole week. Good luck with your Derby hat! And of course you want to meet expectations, created by you by telling us that you still have a lot to tell us, so you will make another post soon ;-) See ya soon!

Blogging is fun and rewarding but it certainly is a huge commitment and sometimes life and other things get in the way.

Not to worry though because we all have been there and we all have to step away from the computer for a bit too.

Welcome back and I hope you have a great week!

Hi Adla, So happy to have you back but I sure do understand the need for a break because I did the same thing. I am so sorry you don't like daylight savings time. I love it though because I like the longer days. It seems funny to see you talk about the fall and golden leaves when we are just doing the opposite with the new spring growth. Have a super great day. ~ Lynn

Adla, I'm so glad you're home! I would come in every day and still you were away...but then tonight when I turned the page I saw your lights on and ran hurriedly up the path and saw you standing in the doorway! I, too hate Daylight Savings makes me tired. The oddly lovely dolly looks ready to leap from the frame! Welcome home!!!

Alison Gibbs said...

Hi Adla good to have you back.

Daylight saving doesn't finish here until Sunday - crazy.
Have a great week

Hi Adla,
Welcome back sweetie - sorry to hear you haven't been well. I wondered where you have been and thought perhaps you were on some huge creative time to blog.

We really must catch up - talk soon on email.

Ginny Gibson said...

I feel the same, I am only managing to blog a couple of times a month - it's all so hectic. Over here the times have moved forward an hour which means a longer evening - thank goodness. But I know what you mean it completely messes up the body clock!

Anyway back to business and creating all things beautiful ~

Unfortunately won't be creating with feathers though cos of the special sniffer dogs in Australian customs who sniff out feathers and dried flowers ~ they must use dogs that suffer from allergies LOL

best wishes Ginny

What a wild ride eh? :) Adla, of course this project could not have been completed without you! The doll would look kinda funny with just my lil ol square. ;)

I'm so proud of you, us...we are one step closer to our goal. BRAVA!

You're just beautiful, as are all of the 182 artists involved here. Job well done Pink Artists! :) your friend, Monica
