Persnickety Pie

Oops, didn’t mean to stay away so long. I was reading Windlord by Michael Scott, rearranging furniture, fighting minor infections and creating desktop wallpapers… few of which I actually posted! It’s my perfectionist streak. Even if the wallpaper itself has nothing much to blush about, the time has to be perfect for posting it. Maybe I could save it for a small contest, or it depends on the right atmosphere, or time of day… but I’m too persnickety about what is ‘right’.

It’s the same with the blog; I haven’t stopped writing posts, but I leave them overnight, reread them the next day, and shudder. I don’t know if that technique is doing much for its survival. ๐Ÿ™‚

The other evening, my sister made a huge pot of her famous lentil pie. I would never refuse it, as it tastes good and is the ultimate comfort food… it’s ironic that I confided to Mum that I associate the pie with receiving bad news! She said she has the same experience every time she sees a spider brooch, as she bought one the same day she received similar news. “It’s how superstitions start,” she said. Now, will I think about spider jewellery every time E makes her pie, and will Mum will think about pie every time she sees a spidery brooch?

Lentil Pie and Decorative Spider

I only meant to do a black and white doodle… perhaps I can’t help myself. The colours will out!

  1. “I leave them overnight, reread them the next day, and shudder.”

    Replace “shudder” with “edit them” and you may do better.


    1. And then the cycle will never end. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I post and don’t go back…except for typos. Otherwise I wouldn’t post much at all.
    Of course the *qualiity* of posts…:)

    1. The quality of your posts is fine. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I will try that today. (Screws her courage to the sticking place).
