Okay, I cheated and got letters from both girasoli AND Jill...hey, a gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do in a pinch. This daily blogging is hard! But I am taking a different approach with this one...Barb did her "B" list using photos, so I am going to copy her idea (just to change things up from my "C" list"!!)
(One of the awesome wonders of creation that sooths my soul.)
(Sunsets and sunrises fill my soul with joy and amazement.)
(Whose adjoining cloister houses my favourite cenacolo in Florence, Ghirlandaio's.)
(yes, I know...this isn't actually a box of oatmeal, but it IS a mixed cereal so maybe there's some oats in there somewhere. And hey, it's Italian so it's gotta be ok, right?!)
(a "borrowed" image...I really do grow green onions, but my own garden is under a layer of snow at the moment with no green in sight!)
(I was whining about trying to think of "O" words and this was Dave's helpful suggestion. Go ahead...google it...that's what I had to do...ok, I'll tell you - it's a flying machine with wings that flap like a bird.)
(as in Oh dear me, why Oh why did I agree to blog about the letter "O"?!?!?! Who knew it would be so hard to think of interesting words that begin with O. Big O, little o, what begins with O...where is Dr. Suess when I need him!!)
(Not exactly an outhouse, but this is an outbuilding containing washrooms, so close enough. It is at a cute little park at Burntcoat Head, Nova Scotia.
As in I am offering my voice this coming Sunday to sing another solo in church...well I'm actually singing the same song I sang last time, but a slightly different version. I'm hoping to talk Dave into coming with the DVDcam so I can post it for you afterward, but he rarely sets foot inside church, so remains to be seen if I can talk him into it or not! Our choir director asked if I would sing it again on Feb 22, Transfiguration Sunday...I'm not entirely clear on the transfiguration (although adore Raphael's painted representation!). I'm thinking the bible story is something about Jesus on a mountain being called the Son of God, but am not sure. I could look it up, but am too lazy! I could also ask my friend, the minister, but she's not here and I have to get this posted tonight. Oh well. I have read that in Catharism, transfiguration refers to personal transformation rather than to an actual Jesus...I like that.
(Ok, I confess...I am not in this photo, nor is it my church! But hey, it's a choir from Italy, so it's ok, right?!)
