Grateful Friday

daffodils, definitely daffodils, in January

big bowls of berries for breakfast—my uncle and his girlfriend have berries for breakfast everyday. I would love to live like that ~ imagine how good that would be for you

I’ve been tagged for the first time! If you are unfamiliar with the concept, it’s a game bloggers play with each one. I need to list six things that you don’t know about me and then name six other bloggers to play along.

1. I used to be a pretty good gardener, but the truth is that since we moved to hot dry Nevada, I haven’t gardened at all (just hired a landscape company). I hope to remedy that this spring, or I will have to take it off my description to the right.

2. I am fanatical about being organized, making lists and putting things away. Yet at the same time, I am forgetful, spacey, and constantly loose things.

3. If I could live anywhere, it would be in England or Wales. I am enamored of every little detail about the countries. I definitely belong somewhere green.

4. I really forget that people actually read this. Every time someone says, “I read it on your blog” I am stunned.

5. I swoon at the smells of basil, vanilla, and wood smoke. Maybe they can combine them into a perfume someday.

6. I start every morning with Brad bringing me a cup of tea (black tea with milk and sugar) and my computer. I sit in bed until I have read all my e-mail, news, and blogs. Sometimes that is a very long time. I know that I am wonderfully blessed to get to start my day this way and I am wholly grateful for it.

I will not tag Tina back because that would be unfair, but you should go by and check out her lovely blog.

I tag Ani, pancake mama extraordinaire,

Vanessa, who has been relaxing in Hawaii, so might not get ‘round to it soon,

Tiffany, who makes fascinating miniature rooms,

Laura, recently started a new card making business on etsy.com

Emily, sent me three little flat rocks in the mail, and for some reason I adore them as much as anything else I own,

and Dominique, my most French Canadian friend.

All of them postcard swappers, and creative fun bloggers. See what you think.

The "organized but spacey" description reminds me much of myself (lists... can't live w/o them!)

I felt peaceful just reading how you begin your day. Wow, it sounds like a slice of heaven :-)

Your daffodil photo is gorgeous!!!!!
