Making the Ordinary, Extraordinary
I am so honored to have received this award twice! First La Cartera nominated me, and now Amazing Star. I have such good blogging friends! It is so nice to see all of your posts, and what`s going on in your minds. To talk to my blogging friends that apparently live next door to me, and chat with bloggers across the globe. I blog for this community, you know?
Enough dragging it out. “I
m late, Im late, for a very important [blog friends] date!” -Alice and Wonderland, the White Rabbit
Well, you already know some about me if you have ever read my About page. However, I guess I can share a few little extras! Here are my top 7 things you didn
t know about me.t include my other six yellow shirts, or my other 15+ shirts in different colors. And that just the short sleeve section!
<li>I am <em>obsessed</em> with the color yellow. Really. It makes me feel happy and cheerful, and reminds me that it takes a choice to appreciate something, no matter how small, and feel happy every day. I actually have a yellow map shirt collection. No, really! I have seven shirts that either have a map or a design that is sort of mappy. This doesn
m a bit of a green freak. I spend hours every Spring clearing up local parks, and I run through the park behind my house when Im stressed or sad. The trees really are a comfort source, like a grown up teddy bear, so I want to take care of them. I grow these little miniature roses that I bought from the grocery store at $5 each, and I love them. They actually do better in my yard with no upkeep than the one expensive designer ‘disease free’ rose that gets fertilized and coddled!
t know what to wear' outfit is a pair of bright tights in one color, a skirt in another bright color, and a differently brightly colored shirt. I guess I like to dress like a parrot! Sometimes I wear calmer colors. My friends can tell Im having a terrible day, though, if I
m wearing jeans. It just doesnt happen.
m lazy, but my hair is always up. I have curly hair, so I take hours making each curl look perfect the few times I let my hair down. I let it go wild and free and curl however it likes when its up, and people say I look so fancy when I was being so lazy!
t go into the designs so much mainly because I dont have any good brushes or tools to use for it, and I don
t want to do a crummy job!</li>t want to hog a piece of land for five centuries as my body takes forever to just go away. I
<li>When I die, I want to be cremated, not buried. I just think bodies are so gross, and I don
d be fine having the ashes dumped in the trash, but Im ok with being stuck in a rose garden or something. Just not the ocean. Ashes were meant for land, not further dirtying our water.
Because nomination is a confusing term, at least to me. It sounds like you are up for an award, when in reality, if someone says you are nominated, it just means you
ve won. Just a little instance of word usage that sometimes drives me crazy! (Well, Im a little crazy anyways. But you get my point, right?)
m sorry if I repeated a few names from last time, I tried to avoid it! I want to spread those fuzzy feel good feelings to as many people as I can, Im just not that good at preventing overlap. I
m so sorry to anyone who reads this and wanted to be nominated, I didnt skip you because I don
t love your blog, its just because I
m not as put together a person as I might wish!n So Green
