For voyeurs only – I’m at Scene of the Blog

October 21, 2010

Scene of the blog graphis

If you want to have a little peek at where I blog, go check out my Scene at Kittling: Books … and while there, do have a look around her blog. I love her Widget headings, such as “Top commenters, Bless ’em”. We do, too, don’t we! Note to self: Try to comment more on other blogs.

Anyhow, thanks Cathy for inviting me to be one of your Scenes. I rather enjoyed preparing my Scene. And it was fun checking out the other Scenes and discovering how many of us are “sofa bloggers”. I discovered, as you assured me, that I wasn’t alone!

    Hiya! Just came from Scene of the Blog (Cathy says hi, by the way :)) and I just had to let you know how cool it is that you also have a dedicated Austen shelf! I’ve recently blogged about mine:

    All the best from Brussels,

      Oh, hello Alex from Brussels. Thanks so much for saying “hi” and for liking my Austen shelf. I will pop over and see yours right away – we Austenites must stick together eh?

    I’ve just been to Scene of the Blog and so excited to see a glimpse of your Scene, and found one more thing in common other than our Jane Austen connection, it’s our Laptop… don’t you just love it! What a cozy hub you have there. I have a JA shelf too, I’ll check out Alex’s later. So glad to find people sharing common interests. Books into movies? That’s my cup of tea 😉

      LOL Thanks Arti … it was fun preparing my scene and deciding what to show. I nearly showed the tumbling over TBR piles but decided on my Jane Shelves and Women’s shelves instead as reflecting a bit of my reading preferences. Yes, I love my MacPro. I’ve been a Mac user (at home – at work we had those other things!) since 1985 and bought my first Mac laptop in 1993. I’m addicted. Funnily enough I haven’t yet moved into the iPhone … perhaps it’s cos I fear I’ll find another addiction!

      And books into movies – yes, we share a bit don’t we.

      Oh, and Alex’s JA shelves are very impressive…

    Thanks for the peek behind the scenes. I am happy to see you are a Mac user. And I love your JA shelves.

      Thanks Stef … glad you enjoyed my “scene”. Thought you’d like the JA shelves – and the Mac, well what can we say eh?

    Ah, your fame is spreading further Mrs Gums. How fantastic, and well deserved. Of course we blog readers love the act of the voyeur. A lovely sneek peek.

      LOL, thanks Louise. (Oh, and I made another soup tonight – Chicken, Barley, Leek and Mushrooms – nice though I’d temper the lemon a little next time …)

    That sounds an interesting soup. I’ve been eating a bit of barley of late. It tastes nice but is a mess to cook at times.

    • October 26, 2010 9:18 am

      Yes, I like its texture I lot. What do you mean about a mess to cook?

      • October 26, 2010 6:53 pm

        Just that when I boil it, it makes a scummy mess in the pot. Maybe it doesn’t happen at your house?

    Ooh, never! No, now I understand. It can a bit but not so much that I’ve thought to comment. Maybe different brands? Different soaking regimes? Different cooking liquids?
