contentedly exploring my own little world

I've been tagged by Willow Manor

1. Write your own six-word memoir.
2. Post it on your blog (and include a visual illustration if you’d like).
3. Link to the person who tagged you in your post.
4. Tag five more blogs with links.
5. Remember to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.

and now I'm tagging 5 others:

Pherenike at Sunshine Dew
J at Fucked Up Chick
Patti at Live to Lounge
Paula at A Mingling of Threads
Austen at Stripey Pebble

Phew ! I gotta say I found this tag challenging (in a good way), hard enough to come up with 6 words to sum up your life but then far worse, (especially for we ex-graphic designer types) coming up with an image that expresses or builds on those sentiments, but of course in an ever so subtle and not-so-literal way. Choosing the image ended up being the much bigger struggle ... but fun. I'm changing the rules slightly ... I think that the tagging of 5 others should be or could be optional. I know it can seem imposing tagging people ... so I'll leave it up to my tag-ees to choose whether they want to continue the tag game.

My little harbour is filled with thick fog this morning, grey and heavy and if it weren't for the cool breeze blowing in my slightly open window, listening to the sounds of the birds and their singing I would think it was summer.

Miss Dixon is snoring in her bed under my desk, and we're just about to get bundled up for a long morning walk along foggy shores.


  1. It was difficult wasn't it....but fun. Trying to squash a life time into 6 words and one photo. And then teaching myself to copy and paste. Blogging is certainly stretching my brain.I liked yours....contentedly exploring my own little world.

  2. I love your blog and I certainly love meeting your sweet fur friends.
    I am so glad you left a comment because it led me here.
    Stay well and have a wonderful week ahead.


  3. Your little memoir is great! I love it. And those strawberries are fabulous. Thanks for joining in. :)
