Grow Your Blog 2015

2 Bags Full

Hi everyone,

I saw this button on a blog page and wanted to join in the fun.
I love meeting new people and discovering new blogs., so this would be perfect for me.

My name is Monique Elisabeth and I have been blogging on and off for quite some years now.
Last year I had me 50th birthday and that has been a very imporant point in my life.
I was operated on in 2012. My thyroid was removed for the largest part and after that things only got better. I lost a lot of weight, stopped colouring my hair and started to do all kinds of things I like, because my energy was back.
I have an auto imune disease ( Hashimoto), which is under control with medicine.

I enjoy my family and pets, gardening, knitting, crochet, baking, cooking, reading, singing and so much more.

This blog will be a little look inside my life and will show you the things I enjoy.

I hope you will love your visit here and I hope to visit you too.

Please leave a comment. I love comments ; )

  5. Hi, Sandy from Sunny California!! We had winds too!! I have a mess to sweep up tomorrow...didn't bother today because of more winds, but lots of sunshine.

    You have many of the same interests I do! Knitting, crocheting, sewing, baking, cooking, reading, gardening, my two cats too!! I only sing for myself! Lol!! I was in my high school choir and the Methodist church choir as a younger person...seems like ages ago, but again not really. Your only as young as you feel.

    Stop by my blog sometime when you can, and my FB page has tons of free crochet and knitting patterns for you to enjoy as well.

    Keep in touch!! Sandy
