Marvelous Monday Link Party #35

Marvelous Monday Linky Party

It’s the FIRST link party of 2015!!!

How has the start to your year been?  Have you been taking a break or have you got stuck right into the blogging?

It’s been a bit of a dramatic start to 2015 here in Adelaide.  We have been having scorching heat…temps reaching mid 40 degrees, and for the last few days our beautiful Adelaide hills have been ablaze.  I live in the suburban foothills, and whilst can normally see smoke from bush fires, we are never normally affected.

This time however the fires have been huge and totally out of control in every direction.  Some of the suburbs in the foothills have been on high alert and a few friends had to evacuate.  It has been a scary start to the year!

It’s yet another reminder at just how precious life is and you really can’t take anything for granted.

I hope that the start to your year has been a lot less eventful than it has been here!!

Let’s look at all things enjoyable and share what you have been busy with recently!

Now that the year has officially started, what are your blogging goals?  I would love to hear them….have you set any?  Of course, one of them is to link to this party every week…..he he….but I’m sure you have many more.

Please share after you have linked up!!

For now, let’s start the party by looking at last week’s top 3 clicked links.

    Thanks for hosting, Catherine! I don’t really have any blogging goals set. I’m not really a goal setter:( I just pretty much do what I feel is right at the time:)

    Hi Catherine, thanks for featuring me today and thanks so much for hosting! Today is my Jan 1st and I have to start working on my blogging goals….I have so many ideas in my head but I need to get them down on paper or in a spreadsheet.

    Wow, what a sad thing to be experiencing. I hope temperatures drop and fires subside soon. Prayers for all those affected.
    Thanks for hosting the party. Always a pleasure to participate.

    • Catherine Holt January 6, 2015 at 9:56 am #

      Thanks Kelly. It has certainly been a sad start to the year. So far there has been no loss of human life, but lots of animals have perished and around 20 homes so far burnt. It’s not under control yet, so we don’t know the final outcome. Cooler weather is expected for the end of the week, so hopefully that will make a huge difference.
