Friday's Feast

Ooh, hope I still have time to do this next week...we will see!

Appetizer: Who was the last person you hugged?
That would be Lee, this morning before he went to work. He got all enthused.

Soup: Share a beauty or grooming trick or tip with us.
The way I get my hair to stay curly longer is to spray both curl enhancer AND a hairspray into my hair before blow drying with the diffuser. This way, even though my hair is fine, the curls do not wilt. My hair is not as curly as my kids' hair, so it needs a bit of help. The same technique with a smoothing agent will make it stay straight if I want to do that.

Salad: What does the color yellow make you think of?
The kitchen in my parents' house in Florida, which had yellow gingham wallpaper (and festive avocado green 70s appliances). Or the fact that our yarn shop owner doesn't like yellow, so at first she hardly ordered any yellow yarn for the store.

Main Course: If you were to make your living as a photographer, what subject would your pictures revolve around?
Flowers. I could look at flowers all day, every day.

Dessert: What was the longest book you ever read?
The longest book I ever read every bit of was probably A Woman's Book of Myths and Secrets by Barbara J. Walker. The longest book I own is a gigantic Kenkyusha Japanese-English dictionary.

Heh... I have the pocket size Kenkyusha and it cost me 74 bucks! If I bought the full version I bet I'd never get rid of the damn thing.

That's one of my favorite books and
Yellow gingham is one of my favorite fabrics. So fresh and promising, sweet without going over the top. Yellow can go either way, often it provokes anxiety (which is why they say never to paint a nursery yellow, although I think being left to sleep alone in the nursery is really the problem) I always find a subtle yet sunny color of yellow to paint my walls.
