I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue air......love to have coffee...sip a glass of champagne......read a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

Blogging For A Month Now

I have been blogging for a month now!!! Who would've ever thought that if I just press this little button that says 'Create Blog' just to see what would happen - and presto ... wow, enter a wonderful new world of the Blogging Community ... lots of stories to share, beautiful stitching happening, recipes to share and many other of life's moments, all well and truly inspirational and much cherished by you all. Thank you for all your comments ... it has made my re-cuperating so much easier and not so isolating when in that situation, and also when raising a daughter with a disability...as you can see in the little verse in my prior post, how true it all is for us...
I have thoroughly enjoyed your visits ... and thank you for calling in.

I think a celebration is in order now ...
Any Excuse Chocolate Pate : (from Choosing Happiness, Life & soul essentials - Stephanie Dowrick)
. 300g good quality bittersweet chocolate
. 1 cup cream . 2 cups fresh raspberries
. Chop chocolate and place in bowl over hot water
. Stir chocolate with cream until melted
. Place cling wrap directly on to surface of pate and refrigerate until firm
. To serve, scoop pate onto plate and garnish with fresh raspberries ... very decadent. Enjoy - perhaps with a glass of pink champagne ...

Hello!
Thank you so much for visiting 'A Thousand Clapping Hands'! I am really looking forward to sitting down and reading your blog. I love when there are lots of things to read! And I love to cook too! I began my blog in June but just got up the courage to actually contact people about it! All new to me. There are still things I have no idea how to do. I will visit with you very soon - when I actually have a moment to breathe from all this Halloween stuff! All the best - Catherine

and you are a joyful blogger and doing so well- I love blogging too but seem to be stuck- could be something to do with a grand daughter who keeps me busy - even at 18-- and that is my story and I am sticking to it- blog hugs from Meme

Welcome To My World

Hello, my name is Dzintra Ingrid ... have been known as Ingrid and since our Sea Change I have started to use Dzintra ... pronounced without the D ... (but still known as Ingrid, I know, it's confusing ...)

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
