Jo has suggested a new tag. Its to make a Namelian using your own name (any variant is allowed). See her post for the full details. This came from an idea she got from Steve's post on Namelians where you can also go to get the instructions.
As its a tag I'm tagging JohnnyNorms (instead of those beans!), Ian (sorry about the double tag for weird things), Tinker (again sorry for pushing for more weirdness last time... this must be easier!), Susie (its a fun change from photography!), Joy Eliz (I thought you might like to be asked...), Melba (because you said you like being tagged) and Andrea (just in case you want something to play with for a change, and to entice you back to your blog!).
And since I'm in the mood for such things I'm tagging myself to post 5 lovely things in each posting throughout Finding Water.... this is derived from one of the exercises for week one where Julia Cameron suggests at the end of each day we write down 5 things we've seen that visually delighted us. I'd prefer to broaden this to 5 things that delighted me, whether visually or some other way. Here are yesterday's:
- One of the regular helpers in Amnesty remarked that I always seem so happy that I must be doing something right! (A good counter to any lack of optimism shown here lately!)
- A man in the supermarket came and stood beside me as I looked at the chocolate display - we ended up discussing chocolate and he told me that the 85%+ stuff is especially good for you as its so full of flavinoids etc. He said there is somewhere in Bristol, but he couldn't remember where, that you can get 90% cocoa solids but that its something you really can only eat a tiny bit at a time. I decided he was my chocolate angel! :-)
- Sheer joy at finally posting all the things I'd meant to post for ages. Three parcels - yes! (Good job I'm not selling things on Amazon at the moment...)
- Noticing that one of my local shops has an elephant on its sign!
- Finally finding the plastic bottle recyling bank - I actually skipped like a six year old as I went over to "deposit" my plastic bottles. I've no idea why but it made me really happy.
