Imagine that. I've been a blogger for a year now, my first post was 1 January 2011. I didn't know if I would keep up with it, or more importantly for me when I started, would anyone want to keep up with me. Well the statistics speak for themselves. Journey to the Edge of Jane has not been an overnight success, but as I write, I have 52 followers, after 51 posts. It's not so much the number of followers a blogger has (although I see some bloggers are driven by the big number) but the quality of the followers. I love that each time I welcome a new follower (you help validate me!), and I jump over and check out their blog, it's nearly always a person whose spirit, humour or interests align with my own in some way. It's just like magic! I think my January affirmation has been working behind the scenes for me.
So, thanks to you, one of my lovely friends, for keeping me smiling and willing me to follow dreams to create and be happy. In a world where there is so much negative, it's so nice to know there are just as many positives.
I am finally getting around to trying Ironmum Karla Quinoa salad.
The onlookers comments...
'mum, what did you just take a photo of?'
I said: 'my packet of quinoa'
Onlooker said: 'do you really think anyone will care?"
I said: 'Karla will'
When the quinoa was ready...
Onlooker said: 'are you actually going to eat that?'
I said: 'um, yes'
Precious aren't they!
Have to go now and add the extra bits. Have a great day today whatever you are doing. I'm having some girl time with some special friends. Oh, and last night I made these. I'm loving making paper garlands at the moment and giving them to people I love.
Today, let your heart do the talking.
PS. If you have any great Quinoa recipes, please share. Just wait till I serve it up to 'the onlookers' for dinner one night!
