let’s take it outside

hhmpf! seems i never get here till the last minute these days and this one is no different. well, i may try to change things up next week and truly spend time blogging. fact is that blogging has as much to do with my friends and their blogs as it does with my own.

i was just in the mood to get outside today, i’m sure after this winter you are too.

i think putting a certain time aside to blog, visit friends, respond to comments, read others’ posts…that’s all part of the experience. getting here just before midnight is such a disservice and that has to change!

which reminds me, the other half of blogging fun is connecting. if you’re not on my blogroll and want to exchange links, please let me know.

well, i’m glad we got some fresh air.  suffice it to say it’s almost midnight on saturday and i’ve got to go. have wonderful weekend dear friends!

    Love that you took us outside…I wonder whats behind that lovely door. I agree Claudia, as I find myself trying to blog in the wee hours after a long day…change sounds like a wonderful idea!

    Hi Claudia….Things are very much the same for me as well. It has been difficult to get any blogging done lately. Your posts are always well worth the visit. And you explain things just the way I feel. This one is very beautiful. I really enjoy stopping by.

    This is so inspirational! I just love the front door (at least I think it is?) and the great colours of nature. Thank you for sharing!

    Your images are so beautiful. I am looking forward to a trip to Paris in a few months.

    Yes, it is difficult to get everything done these days. Blogging is an addition to daily life.

    I would love to join your blog roll.

      you’re right, there’s a lot to accomplish these days. blogging should be a fun addition, never one of the difficult things.

    I want to be sitting in the chair in the last picture, tucked up under the blanket, wrapped up in winter clothes with a vin chaude warming my hands. I want it so much.

    Claudia, your last minute posts are divine. No need to change anything.

    Well, those images really hit the spot. I need to see something beautiful other than mounds of slowly melting snow. Thanks so much.

    Well…thanks a lot, Claudia! If I didn’t have spring fever before I read this, I sure do now!!! LOL! These are beautiful inviting pics….and they sure do make me wish for beautiful warmer , sunnier weather! And I have the same challenges you do trying to find time to visit, connect and blog….I simply must get up earlier!

    Bonjour, Claudia! I purchased your book when it first came out and have been following your blog for about a year. I’m always so impressed with your lovely, inspiring photos and don’t know how you keep up with it as often as you do! :) I recently started my own blog and have added yours to my roll. I’d be honoured if you would consider mine as well. Merci beacoup!

    I so have Spring Fever and this post really…makes it worse actually, but in a good way!
    As for blogging just before midnight, at least you do blog. I’m always too busy lately, but I always try to catch up on each and every post here!
