Today I’m showing you the quilt on the living room wall Greg was kind enough to put over the couch.
It’s one you’ve seen often. One that I made myself. But it’s still one of my favorites. I thought it had a spring look to it, and I’m looking forward to spring.
I’d like to put my bigger quilts on the wall, but that’s more tricky. They won’t stay up with thumb tacks like this one does.
I wish the couch didn’t have to be pushed down so close to the dining space.
But with the new Relax The Back chair, the couch had to be pushed down to accommodate its size.
I’m not complaining. The chair is wonderful and helpful for my back!
I was in the mood for flowers, so out came my floral paintings. It’s fun to rotate my wall art around.
Now the barn paintings are hanging on the walls of my hallway.
Cozy Little Book Nook News:
I’ve thought about this, and once the price per month for this separate blog was getting close to $100 a month, I reconsidered.
Since that blog would not make income, I had to make some decisions.
Plus this month I’m making probably a third of what I made last month. That’s because, for one thing, it’s the first of the year.
And second, we bloggers who depend on ad income are at the whim of advertisers. If advertisers catch a whiff of things changing, like the economy, they aren’t so generous with what they pay for ads.
Bloggers are always told never to depend only on ad income, but I never knew quite what else to do. I don’t sell products. Or make printables.
Printables are tricky due to lawsuits over infringement of images, etc. I discussed this with a blogger who has printables on her blog, and it sounded like more trouble than it was worth.
I don’t sell ebooks because I’ve always felt that that would just be regurgitating what I write on the blog. and I don’t want anyone to pay for that.
A Cozy Little Book Nook Page Instead Of A Separate Blog:
So, anyway, the tech guy says we can just take Cozy Little Book Nook and make it a separate page on this blog. That would cut out all my monthly costs for it.
He said we could do a custom post type setup that doesn’t go on the home page. It will just go on the book review page.
Those of you who don’t care for book reviews could just skip over that content because it would go to a separate page. That’s if I understand him correctly.
I’m not good with all the tech stuff. So he’ll have to help me with this.
I was excited about a book blog, but I didn’t realize I was going to have to pay so much per month. And it wouldn’t be bringing in money to cover it.
That project was a nice distraction.
I’ve been disappointed about my physical status because the gardening months are almost here, so I was reaching out for new projects. And I guess I over reached.
Looking Forward To Gardening, I Hope:
But I’m not giving up on that garden. Don’t count me out!
It might not be as substantial. But I will have a garden of some variety.
I just had to stop with this post and put up my grocery order. I’ve found a nice young man who I’ve selected as my favorite shopper.
I only place a grocery order about once per month.
When my favorite shopper with Shipt is available, he takes my order.
Zack knows how to find me. He’s careful about my selections. And he brings the grocery sacks to my kitchen counter. Can’t beat that. And he can’t help himself; he calls me ma’am.
I’ve told him he doesn’t have to do that. But he says it’s from his upbringing.
I tip him well. And I’m quite pleased with this arrangement. I can use my local grocery store now instead of Whole Foods.
Oh, and here’s a photo of Ivy. Is it possible this cat is still growing? Look how long she is.
Of course I looked it up and found this information about cats growing.
Right now she’s head butting me to pet her.
The Craft Corner:
I’m working on figuring out a craft corner in my office, so that is a new project I’m looking forward to. I ordered some fat quarters and embroidery floss.
I also have more to show you in the living room.
Now Ivy’s mad because I’m not petting her. So she’s perched on the top of my chair and whipping my face with her tail.
