Things I ♥ Thursday 6-10-10


“The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.” – Henry Miler

Perhaps one of the best Thursdays I’ve had in awhile!
A little background on the above picture I took before the list.. (or you can skip down!)
I grew up with two very different sides of the family – the reserved, germ and outdoors hating Korean side, and the hiking, fishing, roll in the dirt American side. Well, I was a reserved, quiet roll around in the dirt nerd. I’d spend hours hunched over dandelions, clovers, and grass whispering to them, noticing every little detail of the ground around me. I was embarrassingly dubbed “the crazy nature nut” by my sisters friends.

I went outside to photograph flowers today, (because I don’t like it and decided to go outside of my normal subjects) and found myself in awe at the details I’ve missed, so I spent today peering at curiosities on flower petals, varieties of spiders and so much more. I also caught that lucky shot of the seed flying off the dandelion.

The list

Strawberry picking – in which I also spent a long time squinting at the plants and berries as families passed me by quickly down the other aisles. Expect strawberry pictures and a review on the farm soon!

♥ Dreams about naming my daughter in my dreams Jack, after the Jack in Mass Effect 2, which I would never do haha.

♥ Realizing that my new kitten not only has thumbs, but also has a protruding RAPTOR CLAW between his regular toes and his “thumb”. He still needs a name, and hopefully one more creative than his big brother..who is dubbed Thumbz.

Anything tropical! I recently bought an Island Guava candle from Yankee Candle, and Sex on the Beach perfume from Demeter

Exploring Buhl Mansion Guesthouse and Spa – Some of the beds were so big they had a stepping stool with a few steps to climb on the bed!

Eat, Pray, Love – I’m 1/3 of the way through, and it was more than I imagined. I normally reach for sci fi, or art books but a friend recommended it and I’m enamored with every single word.

Groovesnap

Don’t fear the free weights! by my favorite, Stumptuous. Old article, old favorite of mine, and even though I’ve now long agreed with the reasons, I still love it, it’s a good read.

and a small side note – I know this is my Things I Love Thursday list, but I noticed I write a lot cheerier, girly, and more upbeat than I really am, and now that I’m blogging more than I did before, I feel like somewhat of a stranger reading some of my posts. I can’t decide if it’s good or bad.

Has anyone felt “fake” or struggled finding their online voice when you first started up your blog?

  1. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog – lovely to meet you 🙂

    Eat, Pray, Love is one of my favorites. I think I’m going to have to read it again before the movie comes out.

  2. Also, a comment on finding your voice. Try writing like you’re talking to a friend or a specific reader. It might help your writing become more natural.
