I am going to pay it forward this year!

An old friend of mine recently posted on her Facebook, a message that was one of those "you are supposed to copy and post, and then something will happen" ones that we are all coming to despise

I know what you might be thinking...oh no. One of those? Ugh. I know. I can't stand those either. If I don't do x, y and z, then something terrible will happen. So on and so forth. Why is she even going there?

This one was different. She is playing a new game. Here is the post:

To start this year off in a loving way I'm participating in this pay-it-forward initiative: the first 5 people who comment on this status with 'I'm in' will receive a surprise from me at some point in this calendar year - anything from a book, a ticket, a visit, something homegrown or made, a postcard, absolutely any surprise!
There will be no warning and it will happen when the mood comes over me and I find something that I believe would suit you and make you happy. These 5 people must make the same offer in their FB profile and distribute their own joy. Simply copy this text onto your profile, (don't share) so we can form a web of connection and kindness.
Let's do more nice and loving things for each other in 2014, without any reason other than to make each other smile and show that we think of each other. Here's to a more friendly and love filled year!!'

My response? I am so in! Not only do I want to do something nice for my friends, but also for people I might not have the pleasure of knowing, but know a little about me through my blog.

So if you are reading, and would like a token of my appreciation at some point this year please respond with your email address, or email me through my profile. 

Then please copy and paste the message to whatever social network you use, or email your friends and get this party started! Also, please tag me or link back to my blog if you participating. I would love to see who all gets involved!

As always, find your rhythm of love, and share your bliss! #stonegroundlove #payitforward!

Depending on the responses I get...I will try to give something to everyone that contacts me before midnight Valentine's Day. #sharethelove

***UPDATE*** A few emails have been trickling in! If you have trouble contacting me through my profile, leave a comment with a way to contact you, and I will get in touch! ***

What has been going on?

That is a loaded question. There has been a lot going on. The biggest thing? My computers out of commission. Unless I have my husbands power cord to use.

A couple years ago, his battery stopped holding charge, so we switched batteries. Yes we have the same laptops. But that is pure coincidence sine we both bought our laptops before we even knew each other! I know. We were cute before we met.

So my laptop has to be plugged in to be on. Kinda annoying, but I am grateful to have it. And just before we left for Christmas with the family, I was working on editing my novel from NANOWRIMO, and I smelled an electrical burn. 

At first I thought it was the stuff on the oven, I feel like I baked for days getting ready to go out of town, but nothing over there was burning. So when I got back to my computer I noticed smoke! It was coming from the power cord! I immediately unplugged it and went to inspect. 

It melted. Like, there was plastic on my couch. Melted. Luckily I had been putting the powerbox on a glass coaster, since it had been getting hot and I was worried about a fire. Guess I had reason to be worried. I think we would be out a couch if I hadn't trusted my instincts.

So that was fun. And now I am stuck with only intermittent opportunities to post from my computer, which means crappy phone pics and minimalist stuff for a while.

The silver lining? I have been working on making jewelry, and having quite a bit of fun with it. I am thinking there will be a giveaway in the near future, so if you are reading now would be a good time to comment and tell me what kind of stuff you would like to see. 

I have been doing some ceramic pieces as well as wire pieces. Stay tuned!

Living in the rhythm of love...share the bliss!
