Mochi and I say "hi".
I am borrowing a marvelous prompt from bohemian girl , unfortunately I don't have anything terribly exciting to write about, so here are the ABCs of me.
A-for Amy of course, I've never really liked my name, maybe it is because when I was a kid I never knew anyone older that was named Amy. When I was little I wanted it to at least be Aimee, a bit more exotic.
B-for breakfast, I don't like to eat breakfast in the morning, but I have a great appreciation for it. I just need an hour or two after I wake up before I'm ready for it.
C-coffee and chocolate, two things I couldn't live without. I especially love decaf soy envelopes...mmm.
D-is for dogs, my first dog's name was Doc, my parents let me name him when I was 3 or 4. I didn't have another dog in my life until Yukon, my big fluff ball of joy.
E-is for eclectic, my taste in music, art, books, clothing cannot be defined into a category, I always break the mold.
F-is for freckles. As a kid I had a lot of freckles, I have less now, but still plenty, especially on my shoulders.
G-is for garden. I love my garden, my mom put me charge of the herb part of the garden as a kid and I took to it with enthusiasm. I plan and dream all winter for my garden.
H-is for hope. I try no matter what to always have hope.
I-is for illuminate...just because I love that word and the idea, whether it is illuminating the room or illuminating my soul.
J-junk, I have far too much of it.
K-is for kitchen, the place I most like to be. It is my sanctuary and the place where I can think clearly.
L-is for lightning, I was almost hit by lightning when I was a kid. It hit the house directly behind mine but the light and heat threw me backwards and scared the crap out of my parents. I'm still quite nervous around lightning.
M- is for May, the month I was born. I always thought it was cool that my name can be rearranged to spell the name of the month of my birthday.
N-normal, I am anything but normal. Is anyone normal?
O-optics, I have worn glasses since the 4th grade, but I only wear them occasionally. I really want to go get a pair of funky frames, but I don't have insurance that covers eyes and man are those exams expensive.
P-pink, I hated it as a kid and especially as a teenager, but now I kind of like it.
Q-quiet. I am a quiet person by nature, rather shy and reserved.
R-reading. I do a lot of reading. My parents got to a point when I was younger that they refused to buy me anymore books, but made me go to the library because I read them too fast. The majority of the possessions I own are books, far too many books. And I read all of my books more than once.
S-siblings. I don't have any brothers or sisters and as a result I am fascinated by other relationships between siblings. I always want to be enveloped in the love of sisters, or over protective brothers. Instead I am an only child, and oldest of the grandchildren.
T-is for tea, man do I love tea. My tea collection is constantly falling out of the cabinet and I am always on the lookout for new teas. My current favorite is Hot Apple Cider tea from Republic of tea followed by Green Tea Chai.
U-underwear, I don't have nearly enough sexy underwear, most of mine are stretched out and old. I could really use a personal shopper, I hate shopping, I get so easily discouraged.
V-voluptuous, not quite although I do have some curves, more than enough.
W-wheels, the wheels turning in my head, the wheels turning on my bike, the symbol of a wheel appears over and over again in my life.
X-x, wow I have no idea what to put down for X.
Y-yoga, I have had a yoga practice for twelve years now and I never get tired of it.
Z-Zada, it has been a couple months now, but it feels like yesterday that I lost her. I miss her everyday.
