Just before you delve in, if you read last week's 10 Lies About Me & were wondering which was actually true... it was #4. I didn't actually dye my hair any unnatural colours when I was in art school, but I did indeed have very short purple hair later on when I was in university.
- That there is a fantastic & supportive community of bloggers out there. You know who you are!
- Two-year-olds are even funnier than one-year-olds.
- I'm happier when I have several volunteer jobs in my community.
- Danish bakers make the best danishes. (Go to SweetSalt Bakery in Vancouver if you want to try for yourself!)
- Performing in a TV commercial is fun, not because of being on TV, but because of all the time spent hanging out with the other performers.
- I will survive if I don't log into Facebook at least once per hour.
- Children are far more likely to get injured or lost when there are more people around. Like at a second birthday party. Not naming any names.
- Dr. Seuss books are really great to read aloud, even the 473rd time.
- While I don't really like cycling in the rain, Sprout thinks it's fun.
- Listicles are awesome.
Why Monday lists? Reading the lovely Chloe's blog, Tea Swamp Park, I found an idea I had to 'steal': a list of all her Halloween costumes, with quite a few photos. She got the idea from Hula Seventy's List Project. I've decided to do the weekly lists for a year that Hula Seventy is doing.
Tea Swamp Park & Hula Seventy are not the only ones doing lists, however. Click on the Listicles badge to the left to check out NorthWestMommy's list & 'assignment' for next week.
Nothing says “best gift ever” like a gray fox!
Starting at just $40, Gifts of Canadian Nature help protect habitat for Canada’s native wildlife. A Gift of Canadian Nature lasts for years to come and is a gift that gives thrice! Once to the recipient with a personalized certificate and a beautiful calendar, once to the giver with a charitable tax receipt, and once to Canadian wildlife. This year we are featuring the snowy owl, the grizzly bear, the caribou, the gray fox and the Canada lynx. Click the image or follow this link for more information.
