I Claim This Blog In The Name Of Molly Bee

I've been thinking a lot about my blog lately. I haven't been blogging like I always did because it came to my attention a while ago that I have a very unwanted blog-stalker.  I've caught this person, twice, talking to others about stuff that they could only know by reading my blog,  but phrasing it as if I had told it to them personally and that we're best buds, which we most definitely are not. This person has taken big time advantage of me. They have no empathy or sense of moral decency.  I was shocked to discover, after all that has happened, that they would take such a rabid interest in my life, so I kind of shut down. 

I've finally processed the problem to the point that I have decided that the whole situation has more to say about the stalker's guilt and sad, small, life than it has anything to do with me, so I have decided to start blogging again as I see fit. The stalker has no right to information about my life, and I really can't understand why they are so obsessed with not only learning what I'm up to, but bringing it up to others out of context. Unfortunately, I have no recourse to stop them from reading it. Believe me I looked. A blog is a public thing and the person in question is devious enough to go around any roadblocks I could set up. This is a person who takes whatever they want regardless of the consequences.  I have decided that if I cannot stop them, then I will welcome them. 

So welcome! Come see my life! Share in my happiness, peace and growth. See what  a life well lived with family and friends, who love and care for each other without reservation and without using each other, looks like. Discover what it is to care for causes and people other than ones that will fill your purely selfish intentions. Learn. I have decided that you have taken enough from me, you'll not take my blog too. Let the blogging begin again.  

I've been benched this week and have been finding things to do in between naps that don't much require movement.  I finished these socks.
 I got this Zentangle half shaded.
 And I played with some scratch-off paper that I got a while back. 
 The paper is silver holographic Mylar underneath with a thin layer of black paint and you scratch it off like you would a lottery ticket.
Because of the holograph, it's difficult to photograph. In the photo above, there are no colors on the foil underneath.  Light shining on the foil where the black has been scratched away makes the colors. Cool huh?

And cooler still is that I, Molly Bee Blackthumb, have planted seeds and  managed to coax a green living thing from the soil. Behold...lettuce!

And because he has been sorely neglected on here from quite some time, Mr. Ben, relaxing in his new living room .

So, thank you for stopping by....whoever you may be. Everyone is welcome; family, friends, fellow artists, people who have been referred here or accidentally stumbled in and even people whose main purpose in life is to be an shinging example to others of how NOT to be and not to conduct your life. Peace to all who enter here.

I've been wondering about you :( You're just another connection to home, even though I only briefly met you at Knitter's Guild. And then you inspired my own tangling...which, admittedly, I haven't done in quite awhile. I prefer my knitting and spinning :)

Also, love the socks :)

Blogger needs to add "like" buttons.

Love the socks. What yarn did you use? Always love your drawings. I really admire your talents.

Hey Bentley; welcome back to blogland! ;-)

Did you move? You said he's in his "new living room."

Sorry you've had a creepy blogstalker. I guess you could take it as a back-handed compliment; you're obviously an ASSET or they wouldn't be acting like you're best of buds. At least they got that right....

You are wonderful, fabulous, and vivacious, don't let anybody take yourself from you,

That said, I had an adult student stalk me... It is such a sense of violation, even when you know what you know about that person's small, lonely life.

Go you!

Hey Molly, I especially love the Zentangle you've been shading, and of course, the socks (in time for summer). Wish people were half as good as you, baby you're the best.

Nice tangle, very different on that paper.
Go girl.
