Love the love

Today I’m stuck in front of the television watching previous episodes of America’s Next Top Model, instructing the children on dressing and such as well as randomly looking through my email and texting friends and family.

image My email searches have taken me to friends’ blog posts and to Twitter to pass on some of the good stuff going around the blogosphere. It also led me to a site called When I first saw it I sorta chuckled and then thought what a wonderful Valentine’s message. A lot of us are talking about love and Valentine’s gifts or going on dream and romantic dates, but are we including talk about safe sex and facts about what can happen if don’t?

This Valentine’s Day, the wear a Condom Organization and professional Dating Coach Lyons has some great advice to help us all with our love lives on the most romantic day of the year.”

Just a persistent peck, peck, peckin’

For some extremely odd, weird and on-my-nerves reason, the past couple of days have been extra hectic and annoying. A little bit of this and a little bit of that just pecking at my.very.last.nerve.

Then I heard a sound.

I was at the old house do a little this and a little of that when a sorta tapping sound caught my attention. I glanced around – with obvious suspicion at first – and spied a woodpecker persistently pecking high in a tree. The sound went from being creepy to delightful as I am always amazed by the beauty of nature.

image What captured me the most was the little bird’s persistence. From my vantage point it didn’t seem like he was making any progress, but I know that if he keeps at it he’ll be rewarded with some tasty bug goodies.

Do the birds of the air worry about where there food comes from?

Yup, the Bible verse that includes something like that above sentence came to mind. Guess I need to take the hint and keep peck, peck, peckin’ along.


Image: I wish I’d had my camera with me at the time. The little woody I saw was mostly black with white down the back.


Being a girly girl…

Late yesterday morning I decided I would straighten my hair. It’s something I do on occasion and it’s something that I don’t like to do. You see, I’m one of those women who loves to have their nails painted, their makeup flawlessly natural and their hair perfectly styled. I’m also one of those women who refuses to take a lot of time doing any of those things. Yup, I love it, but I don’t do it. Go figure.

Yesterday was a little different. I even took the time to “clean up” my eyebrows as well as apply a little eye shadow and mascara. After all of that was done – including the straightened hair – an entire day had passed. Okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the point, right?

It seems to me that being a girly girl requires too much time despite the five-minute make-up tips and the quick and easy hairstyles that grace the pages of women’s magazines. I guess, for me, being a girly girl is a state of mind. How would you finish that sentence? Being a girly girl means _________ (fill in the blank with the first thing that comes to mind.)
