Mellow Monday & Getting to Know Me

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
For some reason my yesterday's post did not appear in Blogger's news feed.  For those of you who love the animal videos I share please check it out here. Thank you so much.  :)

I am a very punctual person.  I like to be on time for meetings, work and appointments.  For those of you who have been following my blog for a long time, and perhaps are wondering why I haven't been sharing my own photos, well....I lost my camera in May 2014 on the bus.  I called the bus company to see if anyone had turned it in to the lost and found but nobody had, so...I cannot afford to buy another camera, so I decided to continue with my blog and share quotations and art, etc., in the form of images that I find and provide the link sources to them, which is what you have been seeing on my blog for quite a while now.  Thank you for listening.  :)

The videos I have chosen for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Creamy Broccoli Cheddar Soup Recipe

5 Famous Cats Before the Internet even Existed

Trasklat - Swedish Folk Music - Violin

For the following, I am providing the link sources beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.
















Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always enjoy and appreciate reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  1. Good day, Linda. Thank you for sharing how you have lost your camera. Hope that one day you will be blessed with a camera. I like Sketches in Stillness...no words can ever utter what the heart is able to say.

  2. I am on time for doctor appointments and flights! The rest of the time I tend to be late. I always think I have plenty of time and then somehow it slips away from me!
    I would be lost without my camera! I have documented all four of my children's lives and have album upon album full of photos. Now I keep them online and seldom print any unless I want to frame them.

    Au carnaval...
    Au carnaval de Rio.
    Les musiciens jouent du banjo.
    On danse la salsa et la rumba.
    Le tango et le tcha,tcha,tcha.
    Au carnaval de Venise.
    Tout le monde se déguise.
    On rencontre des princes et des marquises.
    Des lionnes et des souris grises.
    Au carnaval de Nice.
    C'est un véritable délice :
    On se lance des confettis !
    Des serpentins et des grains de riz.

  5. The cat stories are amazing! I had not heard about any of them. The Swedish Folk music is simple, yet beautiful.I wanted to see what was at the end of the long road! I am so sorry you lost your camera! That is a very bad thing for us bloggers. I hope you will somehow be able to get one.

  6. Sorry to hear about your camera. I might have one I could send you, but it's an older model. Let me know if you're interested.

    1. That's very nice of you. A long time ago, a relative gave me her old one to get started with. So nice when people do that.

    2. This is such a kind gesture, thank you so much. I will wait for a while and see if I am able to purchase one in the future, but I truly appreciate your kindness....and thank you profusely.

  9. Nice sayings. I like to be on time too. Do hope you can eventually afford a camera.

  10. Poor Linda, maybe you should pop into their Lost & Found department directly.
    Perhaps, your camera is still there?
    Or a camera similar to yours is waiting for a new "owner" to be claimed? :)
    Who knows...

  11. I, too, am a punctual person, even though Cubans have a reputation for being always late! :-)

    Greetings from London.

  12. Am really sorry to hear about your camera, and I hope there'll be some way you'll be able to get another camera, perhaps a more affordable used one, in the next year or so, as I know you enjoy capturing photographs. Thank you for sharing.

  14. I'm punctual person, too! In fact, I don't like being late so much that I sometimes arrive way too early. But it's better thant being late :-) Sorry you lost your camera. I enjoy your images and videos very much, but I hope you can get camera in the future and enjoy taking photos!

  15. Dear Linda - I need some of your wonderful self-discipline. I seem to always be late and how rude is that?? That is certainly a great virtue and one that is needed for me. I always love reading about you and your videos and quotes are awesome. That soup looks like just the thing for this cold weather we are having right now. Take care and thanks for the blessing of your wonderful post today. Hugs

  16. Great and uplifting quotes Linda... ♡

    I use Bloglovin for my list of blogs, they show up within minutes of posting... I could never go back to the other method... this works so much better for me ;-)

  17. Enjoyed my visit here. Nice work :). ps. Sorry about your camera.

  18. Hi, dear Linda! I don't need to see any pictures of you. I clearly see the beauty that lies within. Mrs. Shady uses broccoli in many recipes and I will bring this broccoli and cheddar cheese soup to her attention. The report on famous cats throughout history was very enjoyable. I never thought of a cat living aboard a submarine or on a ship but I can understand how they control the rat population and boost morale of the sailors. The story of how the mother cat instinctively picked a corner of a cold cellar for herself and her kitten just before a bombing raid was very inspiring.

    Happy Monday, dear friend Linda!

  26. Hi Linda, such a shame you lost your camera but the clips you share are always fun, so I’m very happy with that. I’ve been away from blogging for a while, back now and just catching up. Thanks as always for the clips, I loved the expressions on the faces of the people throwing the buckets! Barbara

  27. That's too bad about your camera. I wish there were more honest people in the world.

    I enjoyed the gag, quotes and that broccoli cheddar soup recipe, I usually get that type of soup when I go out to dinner, but I've never tried making it myself. Thanks for sharing your recipe... :)

  38. Sorry about your camera my friend. Pictures of my surroundings are tantamount to my blog's existence...not sure what I'd do without my camera...turn to my smartphone I expect.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Sorry about your camera. Mine fell and broke so now I rely on my phone, but the images are not as sharp as the ones I took on my camera.

    The quotes you share are worth reading, so until you get another camera (hope that will be soon), we are content to be reminded of what others said or have done.

  40. Tantas coisas interessantes no seu blogue, gostei, beijo Linda

    ReplyDelete
  41. We always have a choice - sometimes not in action, but certainly in how we view things.

    ReplyDelete
  42. My mother liked making a soup very much like that broccoli soup.

    I know why your blog didn't take on the blogroll- I checked the link and doublechecked it on another server. You originally posted it a week ago, and I assume put it back into drafts at the time. It is still listed as being published back there, though, in between your Sunday post at that time and your Monday post. The problem with Blogger is that if you inadvertantly click publish on a blog before you're actually good to go with it, it'll publish it at that original date. If this happens again, just post a quick update post with the link for the original post.

  45. I too am a punctual person ... always have been!
    I lost a camera once on a trip to Nova Scotia and told my hubby about it.
    When I arrived home, he had gotten a new camera for me, I was very happy!

    Happy Monday dear Linda.
    I really like that last quote

  46. How sad that you lost your camera that way. The bus company should have a lost and found but it only works if honesty abounds. Perhaps your camera became a gift for someone who was in need. The Lord works in mysterious ways.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Linda, I was so sorry to hear about your lost camera, because I was wondering why you weren't posting photos of yours. I do hope one day, sooner rather than later, you'll be able to get a new one. I am so glad that you decided to keep going with your blog. You bring laughs and happiness to me every day. And to lots of other people. Even though life dropped a lemon in your lap, you took that lemon and made lemonade. Hugs to you!

    ReplyDelete
  48. The gag made me smile as usual! Sorry to hear about the lost camera.
    I *love* punctual people (and am one myself). In my family the rule is to be 5 minutes early, but not 1 second late.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Sorry about losing your camera on the bus. I hope someday you will be able to replace it!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I am so sorry that you lost your camera. Be assured that we would sure at least help you to get another one if we could.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I hope you will find again your camera.
    Anyway, I love the touching stories of the cats.
    Thanks for the quotes!
    Have a nice day Linda:)
