Blog topics are all over the map and from day to day I never really know what is going to get written and published until I sit at the computer and let the creative juices flow.
There are certain things that I do not write about because they are too personal. A girl doesn't like to tell all her secrets, after all an aura of mystery must be maintained to a certain degree.
My family rarely appear here on the Humble Bungalow Blog.
I prefer to keep some things private.
I share so much here and often wonder if I say too much.
My life is not one of glamour and non stop parties.
I am rather a simple woman with a few interests and a small circle of fabulous long time friends.
We get together for coffee, lunches and dinners both out and at home.
I'd be very lonely if I didn't have friends.
They are a treat and a treasure.
There are many happy hours to pursue hobbies,
go for walks,
and plenty of healthy distractions
from the domestic duties which are ongoing here in the Bungalow.
I like regularity and rhythm
I am a creature of habit.
I love things here to be organized and tidy.
I could never be happy living in a chaotic mess.
It would be too stressful for me.
I only have one junk drawer and it is neat and tidy!
I like predictability
do not like to be "rushed."
I like to keep moving and have purpose.
I do not over think things.
My expectations are low
and I am overjoyed when something wonderful occurs.
I am easily satisfied.
Travel is not high on my priority list
as I delight in exploring what is very near to my own back yard.
I am on a first name basis with most of the shop keepers whose businesses I patronize on a regular basis.
I do like to chat and exchange pleasantries with them.
I feel that this relationship goes beyond the usual exchange of goods and money.
I dislike rudeness in any form.
I seldom use a curse word as I believe there are many wonderful adverbs and adjectives that can be found to describe any situation.
I can keep a secret and am very trustworthy.
I do not like gossip and find it in extremely bad taste when someone tries to get me to say something negative or unflattering about someone.
I stay true and positive.
Road rage is not on my radar.
I try to be a Zen driver.
I narrowly missed getting hit this week by a driver who ran through a stop sign.
I blew my horn out of shock and disbelief
and to try to alert the person in the vehicle that they had made a serious mistake.
My car stopped within 6 inches of their speeding car and I thought for sure we would collide.
It really is a miracle that my reactions were so fast and my brakes were so efficient.
Normally I do not use my horn.
In this case I think it was justified.
It's sound even startled me.
I am a list maker
things that need to be done
I am sure that I can come up with some more tidbits of information
but that's about it for now.
“If you must speak ill of another, do not speak it, write it in the sand near the water's edge''”
I get a fair number of emails...
most of which are friendly.
Many want to share with me their own bungalow images and I feel a wonderful cross border connection
with other owners who are passionately restoring their homes.
Some want to know where they can buy some of the clothes that I have bought and I am more than happy to guide them in that direction.
Others just want to say how much they enjoy reading about the simple life that we live here in our humble home.
I have had some emails from a blog commenter who did not want to go public and leave a comment.
But chose to write in depth about all that was wrong on the blog
from the layout to the content...
The emailer critiqued The Humble Bungalow Blog
in a very blunt way with a rather harsh tone which bordered on rude.
Blogging does open one up as a target for malcontents.
Perhaps this person is unhappy with her life
or is suffering from an illness
maybe venting makes her feel better.
I hope that I have helped some one feel better,
as it is my aim to have an open door policy
welcoming all to The Humble Bungalow.
Next time I hope that she will go public and share her words with all of us in this community
and please do not mince words
I'd like everyone to share and comment on my blog.
