snap of the day



Lagniappe is a small gift given by a merchant at the time of a purchase; it is something ‘thrown in’ . . . something extra.

I’ve been toying/playing-with a different theme on WordPress – which is a wonderful theme for folks who are REAL photographers (I’m angling for a more advanced camera – only have a simple digital camera now).  I’m a very amateur photographer – with a very amateur camera – but I’m thinking of learning a little more about photography and experimenting some.  At any rate, WordPress has issued a theme titled “Duo” which is a marvelous venue for photographs.  My experimental blog is falsely called Lagniappe – when it is actually a hodge-podge of Nothing in Particular – however, it is something extra (or unexpected).  We all like to experiment and try something a little different now and then, don’t we?

Wordless Wednesday – (Tuesday evening)

blog your interests – your passion

I seem to gravitate toward the blogs that are about 1) spiritual wisdoms; 2) books books books; 3) cooking and recipes.  Although another of my passions is genealogy research, I seem to keep up with that by correspondence (mostly electronic) and subscriptions to various genealogy resources.

Have my passions/interests changed throughout the years?  Well, of course, during the single years – if there had been blogs – I suppose I would have been surfing the net for like-minded singles interested in education, current events, etc.  Then: the romance and couple and young married years may have led me to blogs about relationships  (if there had been such blogs).  However, the three mentioned above have always been in the forefront of my interests.  Is that strange?? Who knows?  I’m not that cerebral, I suppose (or interested in the whys of this).

I’m also interested in blogs about hobbies  such as stitching and photography.  There are many interesting blogs ‘out there’ in cyberspace.

However, if nothing else – blogging is downright fun!  [It is bound to be thereputic – even though no one at all may be reading it.]

Some of my favorite blogs are listed in the right column and I visit these on a daily basis.

What are your interests??

quote of the day

Life is about not knowing,
having to change,

taking the moment,
and making the best of it,

without knowing
what’s going to happen next.

what to read next??


give thanks

Give thanks for sorrow that teaches you pity; for pain that
teaches you courage -- and give exceeding thanks for the mystery which
remains a mystery still - the veil that hides you from the infinite, which
makes it possible for you to believe in what you cannot see.
