Interests: dachshunds, books, quilting, social media
Time is precious, why have a separate blog for all my interests? This blog is about my likes, what I find interesting, and what I’m passionate about.
I’m not a writer, I’m not a philosopher, I’m not here to preach or teach, but to share. So sit back, have a cup of tea, and take a look around. You might say “I didn’t know that” or a least leave with a smile.
Wiener dogs, sausages, doxies, teckels, whatever you call them, they are so gosh darn cute. I like to be involved in rescue work, but it can be very overwhelming and sad, so I help where and when I can. Remember it doesn’t just take a village, it takes the entire country networking and giving..time, talent, and financial aid.
Most of the books I read are historical novels, based on English history. I like to read books by grouping in a study of an event, a person, or a time period. For the past year it has been the War of the Roses and in particular the women. Lady Margaret Beaufort, Elizabeth Woodville, Elizabeth of York , each playing a role..all roses, just some with sharper, more piercing thorns than others.
Quilting, well sort of. I’m new at this, not a expert by any shape or form, but I really enjoy making things. Actually I think it’s the fabric that sucks me in. Flannels, soft and comfy, bright Spring florals, and of course, all the doxie prints..love them all. The first handmade quilt I remember seeing was in Lancaster County, Pa..home to a large population of Amish people. Such works of art, patterns that are eye catching, and the sewing..oh my..I can’t sew that good using a machine. My projects might not be given any ‘air’ time, but my love of fabrics and quilting will be.
Ah Social Media..where did that come from? I find facebook, twitter, linkedin, websites interesting. Do you remember when the whole internet started? Well I’ve kept up on the trends, do well with increasing likes/stats on fb, work with linkedin, and now joining the ranks of bloggers. I have a social media business that I use mainly for rescues and websites I design. So many things..so little time.
Hope you enjoy your stop at Simply-Pawsome.
Have a lovely day..and take the time to thank who made this life possible!
