Would You Walk It?
All Things Decay and Die by Robert Herrick
All things decay with time: The forest sees
The growth and down-fall of her aged trees;
That timber tall, which three-score lustres stood
The proud dictator of the state-like wood,
I mean the sovereign of all plants, the oak,
Droops, dies, and falls without the cleaver’s stroke.
Well, I am feeling pretty full of myself at this point, having completely caught up with my posts! I am likely going to break my arm while patting myself on the back for actually getting out to get the photos each day too and while I am at it, why not congratulate myself for reading 6 books in the meantime? I do have to say that it is getting somewhat difficult to do all of this self-congratulation while my cat, Booker, fights me for the keyboard of my laptop, rolling and stretching ever closer to it. Silly little cat!
I WAS pleasantly surprised tonight as I went back through the posts on Pablo Buitrago’s
page that I have missed while reading and found that he has given me the Sunshine Award! Thank you so much, Pablo! And as promised, I am responding to the award on this, my final “catch-up” post for this week:
What is your favorite color? : I like BLUE. Any shade of blue will do, though I particularly like that shade that graces the top of a police car when the officer is pulling someone over – hopefully not me though!
Favorite Animal? : Cats – could I be a crazy old cat lady someday? Possibly…..
Favorite Number? : I haven’t really thought about a favorite number, but I do like even numbers better than odd!
Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink? : Ice. Water. Yum.
Prefer Facebook or Twitter? : Facebook – Twitter’s soundbites just annoy the bejeebers out of me – and yes, I do have a Twitter account that only my WordPress posts go to. I don’t remember the password.
My Passion? : Faith, Family, Fotos.
Prefer Getting Or Giving Gifts? : I am more comfortable giving than receiving.
Favorite Day Of The Week? : Sunday, then Monday – it is the beginning of a fresh new week full of new possibilities!
Favorite Flowers? : Narcissus. No, lilac! No, Lily of the Valley! Or maybe hyacinth or iris. I can’t possibly choose!
I am supposed to award this Sunshine Award to some people, however as I look through all of the fabulous and talented and wonderful folks I follow, I am having a very difficult time choosing just a few! But choose I shall:
Antoinette at the Cooking Spree brings me sunshine in every recipe she beautifully presents.
Dawn at 3 Quarters Today brings me sunshine in every positively positive post!
Bonnie at All I’ve Got is a Photograph brings me sunshine with each sweet comment she gives me and each sweet photo she posts.
I am going to stop at three because my brain is positively *boneless* and weary from making it work so hard! Good night all!
