A - Z Road Trip - Day 5 - 8/9/16

Post A-to-Z Road Trip 2016 

After a hiatus during August (filled with weddings and holiday) today is day 5 of my A-Z Road trip, visiting those bloggers who also signed up.  You can check out the complete list here

I'm trying to visit at least 5 blogs on the list per week and post my thoughts here on my blog.  These are my thoughts and while I hope not to be less than constructively critical I definitely don't want to cause anyone offence.

I'm working through the even numbers first so today I'm continuing at:

#34 Happiness and Food  This was a very interesting blog.  The writer, Parul, is based in Bangalore and the theme of her A-Z posts was Women. Posts were interesting and thought provoking.  Parul is an active blogger and worth checking out.

#36 Livin' La Vida Dog is a blog that seems to exist almost exclusively for the A-Z challenge.  It follows the adventures of Dixie and Dillon, 2 Australian Shepherd dogs.  Lovely pictures of the dogs but if you're a cat person or not an animal person you could easily skip this one.  The dogs owner also blogs at California Dreamin' Squirrel.

#38 is Livre it to me   which is a blog centred around books and book reviews.  The A-Z posts tailed off a bit towards the end but there were some good topics and the writer is consistent in the way she reviews books.

Now the trouble with the Road Trip is that it's easy to get sidetracked.  My next stop:

#40 is Forty C'est Fantastique
 has done just that. I've visited this site occasionally when taking part in the SoCS challenge but missed the A-Z posts.  The writer is American but a lover of all things French and this year's posts are all tips on how to learn French.  Something that interests me as we have french relatives.  The posts are now bookmarked to read properly.

Having been sidetracked it's time to catch up on the mundane chores around the house that won't do themselves.  Although a lady of leisure I do like to lounge in clean sheets and clothes and they don't wash themselves.  Wouldn't it be great if they did?  Although I think my hubby suspects they do!


  1. Thank you so much for the mention. It means a lot :)

  2. It sounds an interesting way to get to know some different bloggers.

    1. It is but sometimes I find myself wandering for ages when I should be doing other things!


I love receiving comments and will do my best to acknowledge them, either by replying here or dropping in on your blog.

Thanks for stopping by.
