Tagged...

I've  been tagged by dear Jeanette to share six non-important things/habits/quirk about myself.  This is really funny to me as my husband would say that I have dozens of things I could share!  LOL!!

Okay, here goes:

1. I eat cooked oatmeal with flax seed and wheat germ every morning for breakfast.  That's not the weird part, though.  I like it thick and after I put it in the bowl, I spread it out up the sides of the bowl so it can cool off.  I eat all the oatmeal off the rim first and work down to the bottom, eating in a circle.  Weird, eh?

2. I am addicted to lip balm, Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm to be exact.  I sleep with one under my pillow at night so it is in easy reach!

3. The pillows on my couch have a zippered end.  This is the end that HAS to be down on the couch.  If they aren't placed this way, it drives me nuts!  Can you say O.C.D.?

4. I sleep with three fans; one ceiling fan, a box fan on the floor (mostly for noise) and a small turbo fan that I also travel with. 

5. I don't like wearing shoes.  And when I do, I don't like shoes with a closed toe and I prefer to wear slides, or shoes with no back to them.  I pretty much live in my Reef Flip Flops and since I live in Florida I get to wear them just about year round.  Now, don't get me wrong!  I do wear shoes that fit the outfit.  I will wear the right shoe, but if I have an option it is going to be my flops!

6. I shave my legs everyday and sometimes twice. 

Rules

pent a few hours with my art friend Michelle today.  We took "The Chair" out to the river and the beach for a most interesting photo shoot.  We dodged raindrops and sweet talked the guard at the beach shack to let us on the beach for free.  He gave us twenty minutes!

We had a good time and came away with a lot of great photos.  Visit Michelle here to see her shots of "The Chair" on the beach and at the river.

My Beach...

I was introduced to scrapbooking about eleven years ago when all we had was colored card stock and cute stickers. A lot has changed since then!  With a passion for digital art, I decided it was time I began dabbling in digital scrapbooking.  Here is my first layout!  Enjoy!

Have a blessed day!

How nice to open my e-mail this morning to find that Marie Otero awarded me the You Make My Day Award!  Thank you so much, Marie!  In return, I am to give this award to others in a pay if forward kind of way.  I have read that it is to be sent to five people and I have also read that it is to be sent to ten people.  I decided to go with six, but I could have done so many more!

Would You...

Would you notice something beautiful if you heard it? Or saw it?  Would you stop to look or listen?  Would you be too busy?  Or in too much of a hurry?

What is this life if, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare.

-- from "Leisure," by W.H. Davies

Will one of the nation's greatest musicians be noticed in a D.C. Metro stop during rush hour? Violinist Joshua Bell experimented for Gene Weingarten's Sunday Magazine story in The Washington Post.  You won't regret reading this article.  It is long, but trust me it is worth the read!

Signs...

The dictionary defines the word sign as a notice, bearing a name, direction, warning, or advertisement, that is displayed or posted for public view: a traffic sign; a store sign.

Do you ever pay attention to all the signs around you?  There are some interesting ones out there!  If you are curious about the History of Signs visit here for some great information on the subject!  I posted a sign image yesterday and decided to post some more from my stash today.  Enjoy!!

Contentment...

Contentment

Within the borders of a run-down garden I saw this seemingly unusual pairing and thought how perfect it appeared, an old sink and a potted flower. And I thought of contentment...

Contentment is the state of being contented; satisfied; having ease of mind.  Ease of mind is a beautiful thing.  The real challenge is to be content in plenty or in want.  I hope you are content today and that your mind is at ease.  Take a deep breath and slow down just a bit.  Walk outside, either onto your porch or take a short walk.  Breath.  Look.  Listen.  There...it is all around you!

"To feel that one has a place in life solves half the problems of contentment." ~George E. Woodberry

Have a blessed day!
