Why we visit the Smaller Homes forum...
Instead of 'tea' this week, I thought it would be fun to talk about what makes the 'Smaller Homes' forum special. Why do we come here? What keep us checking in?
For me, it's the wonderful people, who frequent the forum. It's been a rough year and I lost one of my best friends a few years ago...who also happened to be my grandmother. She was always outspoken, truthful, intelligent, funny and wise...and I miss her like crazy. She was the one person I could count on, to tell me exactly what she thought. Of course, she'd tell you your idea needed work, as she served you cookies and tea or coffee :)
So, although it's not so much about age, as character, I find a lot of those qualities here. Guys and gals, who care about what we're doing, what's going on in our lives and what's happening in our homes and gardens. At a time when so many people complain about how much better 'things used to be' I find that this forum is 'like it used to be'. People/friends, who get together, when they can to catch up, offer advice when it's asked for, and support when it's needed.
A big 'thank you' to each and every one of you! And, I hope you'll share why you visit the 'Smaller Homes' forum, too.
And, just as an aside, I find a very similar (if somewhat larger) group, on the Cottage Garden forum. So, if anyone wants to talk about gardening...it's a great place to visit, too :)
