Blog All About It Challenge – Post #2 – Art

Posted in Blog Challenge, Journal, life, Posting Challenge tagged , at 7:43 pm by Jenn

This post was supposed to happen in April, but as with most things in my life these days…I’m behind.  The prompt for April was “Art”.

I wouldn’t consider myself an artist, but I do consider myself, artsy and creative.  I love everything having to do with the fiber arts.  I knit, spin, felt, dye…and hoard yarn.

Today was the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.  I love attending the festival every year.  I her reinsipred, see old friends, spend an entire day walking, talking and feeling fiber…but most of all just taking it all in.  There are so many creative people out there, all artists…no matter what medium they pick to display their creativity.

Blog All About It Challenge – Post #1 – Favorite Scent

Posted in Blog Challenge, Journal, United States at 6:52 pm by Jenn

I have really missed blogging.  It’s something that I do for myself, to help clear my head.  Put memories in to print and just wind down for the day.  I started blogging when I lived overseas.  It was a way for me to keep in touch with friends and family back in the states and to share a little piece of my day to day journey.  When we moved back to the US and adopted our son life just seemed to take over.  Now I’m trying to get back a little piece of my former self.  I decided join this blogging challenge to see if it helps to spark my writing fire.  Here goes:

My favorite scent?  I think that depends on where I am and my mood.  My favorite fragrance is Amazing Grace by Philosophy.  It’s all I wear, and all I have worn for years.  It’s clean, freshing and subtle.  No matter where I go, when I’m wearing this fragrance I always here…”you smell so good”.  I love it.

I love flowers and love a greenhouse or nursery.  I love the earthy smell of just being outdoors working in the garden, trimming plants or pulling weeds.  My grandmother owned a greenhouse and had a true green thumb.  Summer vacations at her house were something special.  The smell of being outside in the fresh air reminds me of her.  I especially love going outside to pull weeds or tend to my garden during a gentle rain.  The weeds come out easily and the ground is so much easier to work with.

My grandmother had a dog named Charlie Brown when I was a child.  Charlie Brown was a tan cocker spaniel.  He loved to roam around outside and explore everything.  Charlie would often come home with burrs or scratches and he was always dirty.  The thing I remember most about Charlie Brown is his smell.  That dog was always running in to a skunk.  Boy did he stink.  Today when I smell a skunk it takes me back to my childhood, I stop take a deep breath and slow down.  Life was so much simpler then, the only responsibility I had was being a kid and coming home before the streetlights came on.
