Throwing it out there Thursday – Update

I recently started a book called The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin.  It is great!!  I’ll talk more about it tomorrow but I just checked out her blog and wanted to share herpost about symbols of your life.  She, also, declared it Word-of-Mouth day so I’m spreading the word about her blog.

Love this!  My symbols are:

Sunflowers – I’m a Kansas girl and they instantly remind me of home and the farm.  Symbolize my roots.  They, also, symbolize foolish passion.  When is passion not a good thing?
Rabbit – Everyone in my family has an animal or collectible thing.  Mine are rabbits and unicorns.
Drama/Comedy faces – for my acting and directing
Duck – As a reminder that I need to duck when sh*t is being thrown at me.
Old fashion feather ink pen – For my love of writing and classic literature.
Suitcase – Two reasons 1. My love of traveling 2.  Bundling up my baggage and telling it to hit the road.
Bamboo – It bends easily but is harder to break.  I need to bend to life easier.
Phoenix – Because life is about constantly picking myself back up and starting over again.  I can continue to find a better me.

I’m working on catching up on my blog but I started watching my cousin’s kid so I’m spending today between the library and the pool.  After we get up from watching cartoons.  :-)

Bonus Eavesdropping:
Took kid(age 9) to University with me then Pan.era for Hot Cocoa and cookies then library for some books.
Me: “Don’t tell your mom that I spoiled you today.”
Kid: “Don’t you worry!  I won’t!  She might not let me do it again.”

Hee! Hee!  Of course, his mom and I did so many crazy things growing up that she seriously won’t care.  Besides you get what you pay for and she ain’t paying me.  Honestly how lucky am I that he wants to hang on the patio reading with me for awhile before we go to the pool?

  1. Both the library and pool sound like fun. It's raining here today. And yesterday. And the day before yesterday. And tmr too. Bummer! At least I hope it's nice for the 4th.

    I used to collect raccoons when I was little. Yes. Raccoons. That was before I knew they were mean. I thought they were cute little buggers. My lack of common sense was apparent even as a child. Lol!

    Maybe if Jenifer were to send me some flip-flops as a sign of good faith, I might help her to break out. Cause you know that's how she got my email addy. ;P

  2. Kids can take up a lot of time, that's for sure. My wife and I don't have our granddaughter here often, but when she is here it is pretty much a full time job even though theoretically my wife is the one taking care of her. Sure is a blessing that I wouldn't want to miss out on though…

  3. I think I'm gonna do this….the symbol thing…I like the idea. I loved reading yours….made me think. I like knowing more about you, and as always enjoy your "eavesdrops". Happy 4th.

  4. I love your symbols list and have decided to come up with one of my own. What a great word-of-mouth treasure to share!

  5. It's been awhile since I stopped by, and I must say I love your knew layout.

    That is one smart 9 year old.

    My head is muzzy w/ migraine meds so I won't even attempt to figure out symbols and meanings. I have collected wolves for years.
