Five things....

Prompt three of Blogging for Scrapbookers encourages the use of lists. They are scattered everywhere in blogland and about all sorts of things.  Me - I love a  blog list and find them all quite fascinating.  I love that they can take you on journey and you never know where you will end up.  They can inspire, make you reflect, make you laugh - the possibilities are endless.  So what about my list?  Well after much deliberation of options, I've kept it very simple and stuck to five things I'm loving at the moment;
 
1.  Blogging - yes I know I'm only on post 2 but I'm already wondering why I didn't do it earlier!  I have even been brave enough to post a link on the "Blogging for Scrapbookers" forum and was thrilled to find I've had some visitors, who kindly left me a comments.  Thank you for making me feel welcome in blogland.
 
2.  It naturally follows that I am also loving "Blogging for Scrapbookers" the online class being run by Shimelle.  It's proving a great source of inspiration and also helping me make sense of where I want to go to on my blogging journey.
 
3.  Google Reader - it is making my life so much simpler.  I can't believe I have not investigated this before.  During the course of a day, I can switch between my pc, laptop and netbook but don't have all my favourites saved on each one.  Now all my favourite blogs are available to me where ever I am.
 
4.  Singing - in January this year I, along with my friend Debbie, joined a choir.  I love singing, and sang in a choir at school but nothing since..  I enjoying it even more than I thought - for a whole hour on a Friday I can forget everything and immerse myself in the music.
 
5.  Spring - yes it finally has sprung.  We've had lovely weather all week and a little sunshine on your back feels so good.  I suffer a little in the short winter days so am glad that the days are getting longer.  I feel a surge of energy and hope I can just channel it towards some lovely craftiness in the next few weeks.
 

What are you loving at the moment?

Apart from singing....which I don't do at all...and if you heard me sing....you'd be pleased about that....I'm loving the same things as you....particularly the final arrival of Spring!

Yep, I have to jump on that Spring bandwagon too. Although lately it feels decidedly winter like outside. The daffodils are shivering.

What a nice list of favorites! I'm right with you on all of them except the singing. Well, actually I love to sing, I just think others might view it more as noise. LOL Welcome to blogland.

I love your spring flowers. It is autumn here and has been so hot I am glad summer is nearly over to be honest.

Congrats on starting your new blog. I hope you enjoy it as well as the BFS class. I've been using a Google Reader for quite awhile and, as a result, probably spend WAY too much time keeping up with other people's blogs...but it is a great way to get info. For example, I would never have known about Shimelle's class except by seeing it mentioned in someone's blog. Plus I've already learned some new things in the class...I esp. like that Shimelle bundled a couple of groups of participant blog addresses for easy downloading to Google Reader. Very cool, and so much faster than the one-by-one method I was using!

I'm with you on all but Google reader! I have been using it for a few months now but I just can't stand the list reminding me of all the blogs I haven't visited! :)
