To quote a article, "Flowers are blossoming.  Bees are buzzing. The sky is blue.  Sunsets have been stunning.  Temperatures have crept north of 60 degrees, and joggers are going shirtless."

All the spring-esque weather has me fighting the urge to plant something.

Thankfully I have these beautiful tulips from my friend, Liza to cast a gaze upon.  

They are helping me resist the inner gardener from breaking free.

Now, this weekend may be a whole other story.

Perhaps a few primroses on the back deck railing planter will make an appearance.

Just two, maybe three.

Fearless Fact Friday: 02.13.15

In today's world of smartphones, tablets, computers, and the internet - I continue to be surprised with how many people ask a question they can seek and find the answer to.

Information is there for all to seek and gather. S'get it!

When I shared this on Facebook this morning, a few folks replied they ask the question for the interaction with a fellow human. 

This is an excellent perspective and honestly, one that had not crossed my mind. 

'Tis true I was referring more to asking someone what the state capital is versus a potential life changing question.  Regardless, it has me thinking perhaps I should not be so quick to grab my phone or laptop and pose the question to the information superhighway. 

I naturally like researching and I have multiple interactions with people daily. 

However, nothing can take the place of human interaction nor the personal sharing of perspective and stories with one another. 

So, yeah, I am going to work balancing the self education and human seeking of information. 

I'm super thankful we aren't back in the card catalog days. Although, this did teach me the dewey decimal system and how to use microfiche; both of which resulted in human interaction and finding information. 

Mmmhmmm.  Look at that.  I just had a full circle, it is all connected moment.

Catching Up on Fearless Fact Friday

January 23, 2015:  I can move my pinky toes like nobody's business.

I thought everyone could until I recently found out this wasn't so.

Left, right, up, down, straight out - my pinky toes go.

January 30, 2015:  My dancing resembles this from time to time. 

February 6, 2015:  Spirit animals are real.  Ask my friend, DB.  He says I am his. 

This might be mine.  A lynx with a wonky eye is totally legit. 
See above picture and video for a reference point, if there is any question.

She Gets What She Wants

Lap - Check.

Snugs and Rubs - Check. 

I wouldn't have it any other way, except when I am trying to catch up on personal to do items.

Typing is elusive. 

I concede. 

Happy Caturday.

Fearless Fact Friday: 01.16.15

For the longest time I thought the lyrics for Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" were don't stop 'til the bus stop. 

Let that sink in for a moment. 

I didn't realize the entire song title was 'til you get enough and I rode the bus in middle school and part of the first year of high school. 

Yeah, so don't stop.

Shoe Game

I finally did it. 

I purchased a pair of Toms. 

I've been looking at them for years now and saying to myself, naw. 

New Years' Day 2015 I let myself buy a pair of classic black canvas. 

My feet are happy.  I forget when I have them on. 

I will resist the urge to purchase more, for now. 

The other recent addition to the shoe game is a pair of neutral booties by Franco Sarto. They are called Portier.  I heart them so.

So very versatile.  So far, I have only worn them with skinny jeans but I see endless possibilities.

Fearless Fact Friday: 01.09.15

On more than one occasion, I've rolled up to the office of the day or church while hip hop/rap with "questionable" lyrics is loudly playing. 

Today was one of those days - Big Pimpin' by Jay-Z. 

I am pretty sure no one heard this today, yet they may have seen me drop my water bottle in the parking lot. 

If so, they witnessed a pitiful face as I watched plastic shatter at my feet and the cucumbers remaining intact in the infused part of the water bottle. 

I stayed up past my imposed bed-time to slice the cucumbers and chill the water, yo. 

Ok, fine, I made my morning coffee too but still. . . 

The bright side is the straw for said BPA free now shattered plastic bottle is the perfect color match for my travel kleen kanteen. 

Bright side, y'all.

I see it.
