    Love the list. My favorite color is also yellow and the tulips are the best!

    Great list and answers. I like Yellow Jonquils and Orchids.

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that women love Jane Austen and Virginia Woolf.
    Why? That's the topic od another post?

    The ability to heal, now why didn't i think of that? Yes, yes, i'd like that too please.

    Good morning. Having 2nd cup of coffee now. xx

    I have to actually confess that sometimes they scare me when I am gardening (I mistake them for really large bumble bees...:}

    Connie;
    The weekend flew by too quickly, as usual. So here's to a good week.

    MomyBlogR;
    I love tulips because of their symbolism for spring and fresh new beginnings...

    SkyeBlue;
    It's hard to just pick one flower...

    Chloe;
    When I frist read your comment I was on my first cup. Now I'm on my third.

    What are you up to today?

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    I've not had enough of an attention span to do these this week, but I can say impatience is mine too. And yellow tulips are my favorite flowers :)

    Hope you have a good week!

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    i'm baking a red lentil-cheese savoury "cake"
    i'm trying to write easter recipes
    and meeting my son's teachers in the afternoon. and you?

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Chloe;
    I am home with both children and we've just made our list of things we're going to do:
    1. play a short game on a children's web site
    2. make crafts/scrapbook
    3. play downstairs
    4. play with wooden train set
    5.clean the house

    Wanna trade lives for today?
    (although I'd probably ruin your "cake" and say something rude to the teacher...)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Stephanie;
    I will send you some virtual tulips later today :)

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    i want to trade lives yes!
    and i'm going to say something rude to the teachers too, so noone would notice we changed places.

    My state bird use to be the sissortailed fly catcher...so I guess I will go with that as a bird :-)

    Hi! Here via fjl and the world gets smaller. Funny you should mention the word a-bout as it does usually denote a Canadian and I find it very difficult to reproduce.
    I'm afraid I prefer reading about V Woolf and the Bloomsbury lot -rather than reading her.
    Healing would be fine - in small doses or one would be a wreck.

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Chloe;
    Might I remind you; two boys; 4 and 8 months...might you want to reconsider...

    Will;
    Never heard of it; will need to google image!

    pi;
    Thank you for coming by and for your thoughtful comments!

    Hey there Girl...

    Thanks for playing.

    Lynn
    no
    Green
    yes
    yes
    Outgoing, but I don't like being in the spotlight at ALL.
    I love being with my family but something that I would do just for me....is taking pictures.
    Toop 40 and 80's music...it just brings me back.
    Rebel, but it's alway with a cause.
    MomyblogR...I think that says it best.
