Our friend Julie models a platter of chocolatey goodness while volunteering her valuable time for our fundraiser to raise money for high school kids’ music and arts program.

A non meme post – for a change!

A lovely lady whose blog I read religiously has bestowed upon this blog the One Lovely Blog award. Thank you, thank you!

award

In connection with the award, the recipient (moi) must share 7 things about themselves. Why is it always 7? This question brings up to mind Ron Weasley famous question: Why does it always have to be the spiders? Why can’t we follow the butterfly?

So here are 7 things you may or may not know about me, but only the 7 things I’m willing to share right now.

You're late.  Where's our noms?
1) I pledged to love and SERVE two adorable rescue cats. Emma is a gray and white tuxedo, 5 yrs old, and Buster is a ginger tabby, 3 yrs old.

2) On long haul flights, I am a happy flier listening to the music of the rock band EAGLES. I heart them <3.

3) Looking at Victorian houses make me happy.

4) I BELIEVE in the healing powers of walking in the woods.

5) I imagined myself getting married here in this little chapel in Yosemite NP. Maybe I’ll renew my vows here.

6) I love photographing the photographer (especially if it’s the hubby.)

I love Singapore Airlines, two thumbs up!!!!
7) I love Singapore Airlines, it’s the best I’ve used. And Changi is the best airport I’ve seen.

There you go, mission accomplished. I’m supposed to tag or nominate 7 other bloggers, but I’d like to be excused from doing that. If however anyone reading this find this meme interesting feel free to do this and let me know.

Photo Hunt #234: Nature Macro/Swanky

Combining the two themes today was a difficult undertaking. I have tried to find a photo that would hit both themes but I was unsuccessful. Therefore, I am not doing that today. Today, I am posting a photo for each theme.

NATURE MACRO BY GATTINA

This Bud's For You
I’m in the mood for a rose bud today.

SWANKY BY SANDY’S WHISTLE STOP.

Isn’t this a swanky dress? I wish I could fit into it 🙂

ABC Wednesday #56: E

It seems that I missed a few weeks here, the last one I had was for the letter Z.

Anyway, back to normal programming (I hope) is my plan and so I’m going back to playing ABC Wednesday.

For the letter E, I chose to show a few shots from EVERGLADES NP in Florida, a trip I took a couple of years ago.

We took the train/trolley tour from Sharks Valley gate. The trolley moved so slowly as the tour guide Sylvia lectured us on the biodiversity of the Everglades.
