Blogging Buffet: N is for Nature


The theme of my A to Z Challenge posts this year is "Blogging Buffet." In celebration of recently posting my 1000th blog post, I am revisiting posts from the past.  This post originally published on July 25, 2011. 

This is What the Color Blue Is

I've got to thank my dad for the title of this blog post.  When I told him that our summer vacation included Crater Lake, he told me that Crater Lake defines the color blue.  I have to agree.

I'm going to skip the thousand words and let the picture speak for itself.  The photo doesn't do it justice, of course, but hopefully it captures a little of the majesty of the lake.  And for those of you experiencing the heat of the summer now, maybe it will provide a cooling effect!

    1. I imagine the water is very cold! The photo was taken in July, and there is still snow on the ground.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Action-Packed Week, but in a Good Way

Last week, I was thankful for bruises that weren't breaks.  This week wasn't quite as adventurous as last, but I'm still a bit dizzy in the Wow has it just been a week since. . .  sort of way.
