Andrea from L I F E S O N G "high fived me" for the Self Portrait Meme. The rules are simple: Post a picture of yourself (if you're one of those bloggers who prefers to keep pictures off of their site, maybe just post a picture of a part of yourself -- your eyes or something...or even a picture that represents something about you).Then create a post of things that tell us who you are. It can be in the form of a poem -- rhyming or otherwise -- or just a list, or whatever. The format isn't important. Just be creative.So now I need to 'high-five' (or 'tag') people to play along to get this thing going. The more the merrier, so here it goes:
THEN Stephanie @ spunkyteddygraham Tagged me for the book meme.
Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your blog along with these instructions. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST. Tag three other people to do the same.
This excerpt comes from the book "Home Swell Home" designing your dream pad By Cynthia Rowley and Ilene Resenzweig.
"4 New Uses For...Your Coffee Table *add a plexiglass top and it's a frame. the photo gallery changes every time there are new guests to flatter. *tie on a padded slip cover and it's an extra seat. *if it's a mosaic mount it over the fireplace and call it art. *move it to the foot of the bed, like at a hotel suite, to store valises."

#1 My daughter's super clean and organized bedroom and game room. I have said this before but she has just enough OCD to make this mama VERY happy.
#2 The smell of rain. My family knows to bundle up when it's raining outside because all the doors and windows will be open.
#3 Clean laundry. I do a load almost everyday. I love the smell and it makes me feel like I accomplished something.
#4 Blogging. I know it may sound silly. But then again, some of you may know exactly what I mean. i am so thankful for the friendships i have made through blogging. so good.
#5 Playing games with my family. We play games every night after dinner. It is the best time for us to bond and connect. A good meal and a good game...good times!
