Glad you've found Port Wenn. I'm waiting for series six.

but Sherlock and Downton 4 both begin in January.

I don't go anywhere except to school and I don't want to make a blurb book about that. If I had more depth perhaps but I'm all for simple-minded.

Your blurbiography is stunning!

the beauty of being an age, the list is yours and triple or half that list, one of my favorite things of aging.
I also have to just say that your year of leave has been an inspiration to me and the way you have packed a big wallop in any one's list of life! You have accomplished so much and seen so much and used your time to grow in exciting directions. Thank you for sharing this winding and wayward ride! I just held on and checked up on you everyday! I never knew where we might soar off to next, but I was always packed and ready to follow.

Firstly...the BLURB books are amazing...chronicles of Mary Ann...I armchair travel through your escapades and thoroughly enjoy myself. Now that I know that you too are a Doc Martin fan (my fave show of all time...wish it was still being produced...sigh)...you are friend as well. So here I am in Grass Valley with snow on the ground and ice everywhere...very picturesque...can you let me know what your fave pens/paints/pencils/paper are?

Of course you watch Doc Martin. I didn't even need to ask.

I would love to curl up and look through this book! Any plans to sell it on blurb?

So amazing! And I think you have inspired me! I have tried to use Blurb before and have been so sad because I have found the blog to book format super confusing. I think I may try it this way and see how I feel!

Yummy post Mary Ann looking at your creative exploits always makes me feel good inside, even on what has been a not so pleasant day over here. UGH. You made me smile and remember the grand adventure in Venice. Off to spend some time to re-acquaint myself with the videos.

I am hoping to get my 2012 Eastern Europe trip done sometime next year with some kind of blog to book process - also probably just my own version. It still needs some percolate in the brain time. I've also thought about writing over some pages in my books but they aren't simple layouts so I'm not sure I want to do that - yet.

Here's a good one for the dark nights...Jack Taylor, an irascible former member of the Irish Garda Síochána, an alcoholic, of course - private eye in Galway. Strangely enough some of it is shot in Bremen, Germany.

Eye candy alert! But then you are quite consistent with posting delish eye candy!

Love your Blurb books - the writing too. I need to take decent enough photos before doing a Blurb - that's high on my list. At this point of my life though, my list is quite short….and I'm not going to analyze that too much!

I'm a January girl too...makin' my list. If I follow your formula I'll have to come up with 28 1/2 things! Yikes! That's a huge challenge...I just wanna take amazing photographs like you, that tell a story and throw in some simpleminded, shallow thoughts for good measure.
You inspire.....

love love love. this made my sunday evening. thank you for sharing.

When I grow up I want to say things like that Andrew Wyeth quote. Painting like him is a bit much of an ask... Loving your stuff as always. xxx

I hang out in port wenn, too. maybe we'll run into each other and you can show me your blurb books. They are beautiful!

Thanks for the shove to submit my books to Blurb...2 books of travel photography from trips I took to celebrate turning 50. May have to celebrate the anniversary of turning 50 each year from now on!

I love your Blurb books - especially writing in them.
Don't ya love Doc Martin! Those characters make me laugh out loud.
Another good one is Monarch of the Glen. Oh my gosh, so good.

LOL - "You are in a church. You are not allowed to behave indecently." This is now repeating itself in my head. Curious. Like your idea of halving it - especially considering that I'm heading into year 64. Yikes! That could be a lot of stuff.

I am always completely inspired by your posts. Thank you so much for sharing so openly and honestly. At least, that's how it reads to me!! Hugs!!
