my R list…

In my last post I presented the method I was going to use each week to select my letter of the alphabet and I did as I said. And the winner is -insert drum roll here –R! The same as Laura’s. How much of a coincidence is that!

So, here I am and the first thought that comes to my mind: R U stuck? Yeah. What am I going to wRite? So, heRe I sit, staRing into the monitoR, typing these woRds, capitalizing all the “Rs” and thinking, this is silly. Yeah, I’ll abandon that.

So, onto my next jump starter: my list. About 6-7 years ago, friend Kathy and I took a scrapbooking class that had us create an album based on the book Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. For each letter of the alphabet, we brainstormed a list of words that were descriptive of ourselves and/or resonated with us and found a photo that reflected that letter or  a word on the list.

Here are some of the entries from my list:

raspberries – I don’t know when or why, but sometime in 2005-2006, I developed a love affair with the raspberry: fresh, frozen, jam, syrup, you name it.

roses – especially if they are yellow.

reading – a staple in/of my life. I have fond memories of reading as a child and I have always had several books “in process.” My mother was an inveterate reader and so are my sister and I.

reflection – I think this is a most critical aspect of learning…and life. Especially my own.

routines – Last night, I decided that today I was going to make a minor change in my morning routine. Instead of going downstairs for MSQT, I’d fix my tray and bring it upstairs and write this post. So, here I am, at 8:05 am, EST, and about to wRap  (oops!) up this post.

And having said that, I leave you with one thought: I am going to update my list and continue to add  to my  scrapbook album, words + photos, that Reflect* my ordinary/extraordinary life. Perhaps you’d like to do it too…


*Yeah, I know – just couldn’t Resist…
