Thoughts on Thursday

I don't know if I'll do this every  Thursday, but I might. I'd like to take a moment to rant, rave, ramble, reminisce, and ruminate about stuff, crafty and other wise.  The internet is for the most part a wonderful place. So much information and inspiration available at a  keystroke. So many ways to spent hours and hours and hours of your life when you should be doing other things... but I digress.

The other day while I was wasting time perusing Pinterest I stumbled upon this website - Messy Nessy Chic - you can read it here. But I need to give you fair warning that you may find yourself spending hours there - almost as big a time suck as Pinterest but somehow, I felt like it was a way more worthwhile use of my time. I actually learned things I didn't know and explored a ton of different subjects from reading about a tribe in Africa where the women still dress in Victorian fashion - you can see it here. And a great article on the Morris Minor car ( I LOVE small cars!)  which is here, and an article on a hotel in Morocco that looks like paradise, check it out hereWith some of these links you have to scroll down but it is worth many different subjects!

The author of this site is a woman named Vanessa, who grew up in Britain but now lives in Paris. It is hard to categorize her blog... more than just life style or travel... an eclectic view of the world. I particularly like her posts entitled 13 Things I Found on the Internet Today. She is up to Volume CX - that is 110 in numbers I understand!  She also has a Facebook page you can see here. I hope you enjoy Messy Nessy Chic as much as I have. I'm not sure how many hours I've spent reading her blog in the last week but it was A LOT!

Now to a bit of a rant. I posted  yesterday at 9am but it didn't show up till 9pm on Feedly, one of the big reader services that replaced Google Reader. I don't know why it happened.  My most current post does show up on Bloglovin' and more people follow me there, but I usually read my blogs in Feedly and somehow this hurt my feelings. I know - get over yourself - LOL!

Also say a prayer for plumbing... I'm having another plumber come today to see if they gave remedy a sewer gas problem in my basement. This makes the 6th person to look at this problem - 3 plumbers, a handyman, a contractor and my brother. I want the bad smell to go away!!!!! This plumber thinks the problem may be a toilet that wasn't properly installed. Oh I hope that is all it is as that would be a quick, easy and inexpensive fix. One plumber speculated that there is a cracked pipe... behind a wall...maybe a concrete wall... and that fix is very very pricey.

So those are my Thoughts for Thursday... what are yours?

your crazy friend -

  1. I do know what you mean. I can spend hours looking at stitching instead of doing it!!!

  2. poor sweet friend, so sorry your little yellow house is having plumbing issues. I pray they get resolved quickly...and inexpensively.

    I'll have to go check out the blog you mentioned.
