Your time-lapse video of the Golden Gate Bridge, absolutely fantastic.  And the eucalyptus… my favorite.  Bits of information, every post wonderful.

It thrills me to see you and your son living such a wholesome life, communing with nature every day! I’m fortunate to be able to “watch,” so thank you for the sunshine in my life.

And now, a word from our sponsors –

Back to the game – WHAT IS….

  1. Eating home-made strawberry shortcake.
  2. I have none and if I did, I think they’d be imagined, rather than real.
  3. In alphabetical order – dependable, eccentric, energetic, freckled-face with blue eyes, funny, goofy, humble, intelligent, inquisitive, kind, low maintenance,  original, pensive, spontaneous, strong, unique, witty and finally zapped.
  4. U.S.A.
  5. In terms of fashion style –  a pair of jeans and whatever else I can find to wear,  that doesn’t hurt, inflame, scratch, poke, rub, pinch, annoy, irritate,  inflate or otherwise exacerbate my fairy tale Princess and the Pea epidermis.
  6. Organic oatmeal with organic soy milk and organic nuts.
  7. Quilting, crocheting, spinning, gardening, playing  my ukulele, creating art,  observing and interacting with my animals, reading, writing, of course, to name just a few.
  8. Be kind.                                                                                                                                                                                                                    A sincere thank you to newsofthetimes (whose lists of questions at the end of her posts have always been a bit of sunshine for me!)  and circlesunderstreetlights for finding a ray of sunshine in my words over coffee,  and nominating me for The Sunshine Award and The Sunshine Award.
  9. Humane treatment of animals.
  10.  No one can ever live up to all your expectations, so, lighten up.
