Celebrate the Small Things: May 31 May 31, 2013

Celebrate the Small Things

I live a very boring life. This week I celebrate flowers and organizing my bedroom.

Although it wasn’t a major event, for me it was a great accomplishment . It still has a long way to go. I now have a place to work on my beading. Let’s see how long I can keep the space I made just for that.

As far as the flowers, a friend of my husband’s that I finally got to meet brought me two hanging planters with flowers . They are very pretty.

So not a lot going on in my world. Work so far this week has been good and that’s always a blessing because it doesn’t take long for it to become horrid. So this is what I have celebrated this week.

What small things are you celebrating?


Day 31, Friday: A vivid memory

Day 31, Friday: A vivid memory

My first vivid memory was waving to the passengers as they were taking off from the airport.  We lived at the end of a major runway until I was four and the planes would go directly over  our house. It must of left a major impression on me because when I grew up I went into the Air Force.Plane taking off over houses

This is the last post for “Blog Every Day in May”. I have enjoyed doing this challenge. Hopefully I can continue on with writing posts. I may pick up another daily challenge on down the road. I will however be posting on the challenge “Celebrate the small things’, which is far less time consuming and posts on Fridays.


Day 30; Letting Go

Day 30; React to this term: Letting Go

I’m not really sure how I feel about the term “letting go”. Hanging on to something that is obviously toxic or an inevitable part of life, can make one feel less than human or having very little compassion, when in fact it makes you very human and very compassionate and a much stronger person in every sense of the word.



Day 29: 5 Songs May 29, 2013

Day 29, Wednesday: Five songs or pieces of music that speak to you or bring back memories. Use Grooveshark or YouTube to include them in the post

As a child I absolutely loved this song The little Space Girl by Jesse Lee Turner

The monkees were a big favorite of mine in the seventies ,  this actually came out in the sixties


Led Zeppelin Stairway to Heaven: This was played at my graduation

There wasn’t a lot of songs I liked in the 90’s but this was one of them.

I think I have listened to this one a thousand times,  somebody that I use to know by Gotye

Day 27, Monday: A letter to my readers May 27, 2013

Day 27, Monday: A letter to your readers

Dear Readers

I would like to thank each and every one of you who have been following my blog for the last couple of months. I know some of you are kind of curious as to why I named my blog “The Sock Zone”. Well it came from an experience I had one day at the laundry mat. Oh yes boring story time, any way……. I was doing a load of laundry and in this load were two pairs of socks, one red pair and one blue pair, same style. Well when this load was done, in the dryer they went, one red pair and one blue pair, still the same style socks. So far so good right?

Well my clothes get dry and I’m taking them out and folding them as I go. Here comes 1 red sock, 1 blue sock, 1 green sock and 1 yellow sock all the same style socks, I kid you not.

So somewhere out in the depths of where ever socks go, are my socks. Thus my name “The Sock Zone”……. You never know what you’re going to get with my blog………

See you in the Sock Zone…



Day 26: Something Read Online; Monsanto

Day 26, Sunday: Something you read online. Leave a link and discuss, if you’d like.

 Monsanto’s manipulation of food because of greed will eventually starve us all.

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) in food is banned in several countries around the world.

800 scientists have spoken out against GMO.

Why are we still eating it? When will our government at least mandate labeling foods that have been genetically modified so that the consumer may make an informed decision.
