A photo from this weekend that has nothing to do with this post. I just love it. Grace, Whit, and their cousins, my sister’s two daughters. Looking out towards the horizon.
I loved this meme when I saw it for the first time on Writing, Wishing. It reminded me of my own Alphabet of Right Now, whose reprisal may be called for soon. But, for now, here we go with Old School Blogging: Alphabet Edition (and thanks to Alison, whose blog is where I found it).
A: Attached or single? Attached.
B: Best friend? One of two or three, from college.
C: Cake or pie? Cake. Hands down. I don’t do fruit desserts of any kind.
D: Day of choice? Friday.
E: Essential item? Probably, my iphone, because it’s also my camera. Or my quote books.
F: Favorite color? Orange.
G: Gummy bears of worms? Bears, but I’m not a huge fan. I prefer Swedish fish, though right now am in a huge jellybean phase. Not Jelly Belly beans, but the larger, generic ones from CVS or Rite Aid.
H: Hometown? Cambridge, MA.
I: Favorite indulgence? I love massages.
J: January or July? July all the way.
K: Kids? Two. I may have mentioned them here.
L: Life isn’t complete without? Those two kids. My morning coffee. Mary Oliver. James Taylor. My running shoes.
M: Marriage date? September 9, 2000
N: Number of siblings? One sister, the famous HWM.
O: Oranges or apples? Apples. To be specific, Pink Lady are my favorite right now.
P: Phobias? I don’t love roller coasters, though I wouldn’t call it a phobia. I guess I’m phobic about time passing?
Q: Quotes? Heck, yes. I have been collecting them in notebooks since 1985. I cherish each of my 4 (almost finished with 4) quote books, filled with my handwriting on both sides of each page.
R: Reasons to smile? Oh, so many. The sky. Peonies. Poetry. Grace. Whit. Cold Diet Coke. Hydrangeas. The ocean.
S: Season of choice? Spring.
T: Tag 5 people. Instead I’ll just say: I hope some of you will share this alphabet, and link to it in the comments!
U: Unknown fact about me. I asked my husband. His answer: “you’re actually surprisingly funny.”
V: Vegetable? Asparagus, artichokes, sweet potatoes, summer tomatoes – impossible to choose one.
W: Worst habit? Biting my nails. Diet Coke.
X: x-ray or ultrasound? Not sure I understand the question. I’ve had lots of both. I don’t have a preference.
Y: Your favorite food? French fries. Chocolate chip cookies. Good macaroni & cheese. My food tastes are stuck circa 1978.
Z: Zodiac sign? Leo
