Just this

Today I only have this to share.


It is for my bloggy pal Anne who occasionally likes to indulge her love of sconnage - as she calls scones.  So I had to take this picture of my scone for Anne!

I love how so many things that I see remind me of different bloggers!

Amy

p.s. There is a story about why I was out eating a scone and taking it's photo!  I will share with you soon.  I was meeting another blogger! (sadly not Anne as we live too far apart!)  I know getting around aren't I!  More to come, just need time for photo sorting.  I am planning a major photo sorting couple of days!!  Oh, you want to know about the meeting!  It was wonderful and the blogger in question is just as lovely as I knew she would be!

p.p.s. I have been carrying on with the blog changes, you might have noticed a larger size font, some new pages - up there on the top right of the sidebar - and a few other subtle things.  I feel a colour change coming up, but I need to do a new header first!  Not long until my blogaversary so I better get moving!!

p.p.p.s Turns out this post is about more than just a photo of a scone - or sconnage!!  I love that word, thank you Anne!

  1. I'm not sure that 'scone' and 'only' belong in the same sentence :-)

  9. How lovely to meet another blogger. I do think we would all like each other very much if we met. Perhaps we should have a party one day..? Love sconnage – jam first then cream :-) Sam x

  10. Life would be so empty without scones. I have a batch of cheese scones I made in my freezer. I'm very tempted to get one out now and indulge.

  12. On Tuesday my lovely friend invited us worn-out mums to her house for a wonderful spread: scones, posh jam, clotted cream... I had to sit and eat fresh strawberries and watermelon whilst watching them indulge.
    I hate diets!

  13. Thank you!! I invented sconnage as a blend of scones and tonnage, given how many we eat ....... and the word caught on with my readers!

  14. I love scones, I can not be faffing around with cutters and rerolling so cut them into squares. I like them with butter first then jam and cream in any order whatsoever, I have stirred runny jam into whipped or clotted cream and piled that on, it works with lemon curd as well.

  15. I've just made strawberry jam (and have more elderflower cordial steeping, my kitchen smells divine) so will make scones later, and yes I did buy clotted cream today too (well it is home-grown strawberry season!) Jam first, then cream and the pronunciation iin my house is scone as in 'sgone!

  18. Hi Amy, I am missing scones now - I am not allowed to eat then any more because of too much butter. :-(
    I am allowed to read blogs though and larger fonts are always welcome! I try to make my fonts as large as possible depending on how wordy the blog entry is. Sometimes it is a balance between "large font/too much scrolling/pages too long" and "smaller font/less scrolling".
    I appreciate your blogging tips and thank you for sharing your experience and wisdom.
    May your words and scones never run out! :-)

  25. YUMMY! I wish I could make some scones right now! Alas, I have gardening to do instead!
    It's fun to meet bloggers!

  26. That looks SO yummy!! I don't get enough scones in my life. I may need to rectify that. :)
    I can't wait to see the new blog changes and hear about your recent visit!!

  27. Wish I had some of that sconage! :) Too cute. It's fun to make a few changes on our blogs, isn't it? Thanks, Amy, for always popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,

  31. That scone looks amazing Amy! I love how your blog following is growing and the same with your blog design. Have a nice afternoon and weekend!

  32. Oh, that sconnage sure does look yummy! I'm glad you had fun with your bloggy friend. Everything here is looking just great, Amy! xo

  33. It is fun how we learn the likes and hobbies of blog friends and certain things remind us of them!

  34. I have baked so many scones during my lifetime but then I like eating them, and so does my husband and family. Of course I like to go out to eat scones as well and have tea with them. Sconnage gives a new twist to the word scone - almost like the art of eating scones. :-)
    Reading over your post on blogging, I admire people that have the time to blog every day and visit/comment on others. I've slowed down to twice a week, mostly because it's summer.
    Have fun with your blog remake, you're obviously capable of doing the work yourself whereas I pay to have mine done - much less stressful for this tea granny. LOL

  35. Hey buddy! I haven't been around the last couple of days as it has been pure chaos over here...so my apologies. This scone looks like heaven on a plate and how fantastic that you were able to meet another blogging friend! One day it will be us! Now have a great night...I will jump back to see what else I missed! Hugs...Nicole xoxo

  36. My daughter makes yummy lemon, blueberry scones. Now I want one. :)
    The blog is looking good!

  37. First, we grow hostas in pots and the pots are placed on gravel to stop the slimy perishers eating them! So far this has worked!
    Second, you'd not think that something as simple as the humble scone would turn out differently in every eating place in which we order them! Some are HUGE, more like mini-loaves and put us off right away. Some are dry and crumble at the first touch, some are solid and give you indigestion ... we have a scone leader board and when we visit a new place we compare it with the one we have recently placed top of the list! But home made is always best! Sconnage is a good word. We refer to the collection of our harvest of walnuts from our walnut tree each autumn as our 'nuttage'.
