And in the Beginning...

I have been looking at blogs for a while...and I wanted one, too! Now it is just a matter of figuring out exactly how to put it all together...so we'll see how it goes. I wanted to create this blog to try and capture the insanity and wonder that is our day to day life. Another reason is that I am a person who loves lists...so, a blog was a sure fire winner with me. I like the idea of listing what our curriculum is...what books we are reading...our favorite links. I have already sent out a plea for help to Darcy at Graphically designing...so a transformation is already in the works.

I would describe myself as a parsley person. What is that you ask? That is a person who likes the presentation...the person who likes the little details...but then forgets about the meat and potatoes on the plate. So...being a parsley person...I have been trying to come up with a title for this blog for days! I asked my husband, he had no brilliant suggestions. I asked my daughter...she had some "interesting" suggestions. When I told her my idea of "sunshine and lemonade" she thought it was lame. But then when I explained the idea of "tounge in cheek," she agreed it made a fabulous blog title...because that IS my life...all sunshine and lemonade!

So...vote early and often...come back and see my lists...pictures...and hopefully some wonderful parsley for your viewing and reading pleasure.

I like the title (whether you mean it or not)! And your sidebar lists are great.
Darcy made my header, awhile back...I'm sure she'll do a fabulous job for you!

I really cannot let Rhea and HTL get away with this ... the honour of NZ is at stake!!

Karen said...

So are you an Italian parsley girl or the normal variety of parsley girl. How many typea of parsley are there anyway ?

Karen said...

WOW .. just googled parsley. There are heaps of varieties ... and it;s a really useful herb, which I love BTW.

So would you say that you were the curly leafed type, or the Italian, or he Hamburg or are you flat leafed ?

Karen said...

Did you also know that in the Arab worls parsley is called 'Bakdonis'.

See, I might be leavingplent of comments, but at least mine are informative, not like others that I could mention !!! :-)

Karen said...

My spelling could improve though !!! Or I could just hit the keys harder !!! Or perhaps clean those stuck keys...

Rhea said...

I sure hope you're referring to TENT CAMPER, Karen!! hehe

Rhea said...

Tiffany said...

And I like the presentation as well although I'm also a meat and potatoes type to an extent. I guess I'm about the entire package, more than anything. But I love lists, can't live without my lists and like the idea of using the blog to organize our lives and recount our lives, at the same time.

Tiffany said...

As far as your blog name is concerned, I LOVE it! Love the humor of it. I thought about names for mine for weeks. But it always came back to something about fairies, pixies and princesses. The girls are what the blog is about so I went with their wishes. Darcy did an incredible job of bringing our blog to life for us visually. Now if I can just keep it breathing. hee hee

Karen said...

I really love parsley sauce over poached fish....

Karen said...

My pwecious, my pwecious, you caaaaan't have it !!!

My pewcious top spot, that is !!

Karen said...

No Rhea, I'm not referring to Tent camper. I think he's over there in the corner, snoring his head off or peeing int the wind, or something...

I don't think he could hack the pace....

:-)

Karen said...

And kat, I think 'Sunshine and Lemonade' is a perfect name for your blog !!!

Karen said...

Uh Oh ... here comes Rhea again, barking on my heels...

Rhea said...

You parsley person, you. I love lists. I haven't made one yet today though...
