G is for…

Ok, I’ve been moving along fairly easily and keeping up with my posts for the Blogging A to Z Challenge.  I feel I’ve done a fairly good job so far.  I’ve been pleased.  Today we get to the letter G.

As I begin today, I really have no idea where I’m going with this which explains why there is an incomplete sentence as the title for this post.

Perhaps I’ll go with Green.

Sounds like an appropriate topic for a vegetarian, right?  Yes, I eat lots of green foods.  They are healthy and filling and…it’s what vegetarians do.  So for that reason it’s a good idea.

I love the green of the Spring.  This year, it seems that we’ve been waiting Forever to get to the green.  I think we might actually be getting there and I for one can’t wait.  I need the Spring to be here and the Winter to be gone.  I’m not that big a fan of Summer heat so in truth if I could combine the green of Spring with the reds and golds of Fall, I would be a happy person.  You can keep Summer and Winter for all I care.

Green also means Go.  A green light means it’s my turn to go and I usually like that.  I’m often frustrated when the light turns green and someone further up in line dawdles before moving ahead.  I’ll have to warn you, if the light turns green and you don’t move out, you’ll probably be on the business end of my horn.

Green is also for money.  I’m not always in search of money, but I’m always in search of getting the most for my money.  I love a deal.  It must be hereditary. My sister, Ele and I are always sharing when we’ve gotten an especially good deal for something.  It makes Ralph crazy.  He doesn’t really appreciate a deal as much as I do.  That’s also why I love yard sales, thrift stores and Goodwill.  I want a deal.  I’ll search through until I find just what I want.  The more I go to them, the better I get at finding things I need.  Much of my house is decorated with thrift store finds and of course, by bookshelves definitely are!

I suppose I could go on and on about Green, but I think I’ll finish right here.  I feel pretty sure that as soon as I finish with this post, I’ll find ten more things that fit my topic.  But for now, I’ll just say…go check out some of the other bloggers participating in the Blogging A to Z Challenge.  You never know what you might find!

Happy Monday!

  1. happy monday, fran! i love your list of green ideas…we are different in that i love summer the best of all seasons; we are similar in that a good, good deal makes me very happy (that is thansk to my g’ma’s genes, i am sure).
    my eyes are green, i’ll add that in!

    • Green eyes are good, Cathy! My Dad had beautiful green eyes, but neither Ele or I got them. Ele’s are sort of hazel-y so I guess that’s as close as we get. I actually do like Summer, I’m just not a fan of the dreadful humidity we get here in NJ. When I get to NM, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it more! I do love the fresh fruits and veggies in the summer though.

  2. I don’t like vegetables that much… I’m a teen, what can I say. I do love when the grass turns green after winter though. 🙂

    • Ok, you’re allowed NOT to like veggies! 😉 I’ll admit that I wasn’t a big veggie fan in my teens either. I ate all the wrong things and ended up with an on going weight problem. I have that under control now though. I love when the green starts to sprout out through the cold winter soil.

      • I don’t think my Mom would ever let me have a weight problem. Glad you got yours under control!

        Actually, I think the best part is when the yellow daffodils sprout. 🙂

      • Brett, thank you Mom for helping you keep your weight under control. If you start out at a healthy weight you have a better chance of keeping that throughout your life. It’s harder when you start out overweight. I get so sad when I see little kids who are over weight. They face an up hill battles all their life.

        My daffodils are just coming out and I’m so excited!

      • Yes, it is SO sad when you see overweight kids. I volunteer at a Story Hour (my local library) and it’s so sad when we have an overweight kid in there. 😦

        We don’t have any planted – we’re in the process of moving, so we’re going to make sure to plant some at the new place!

      • Good luck with the move. We’re working on one also and I can’t wait for it to be finished!

      • Moving is a pain in the butt! I can’t WAIT until we’re done.

      • I love the opportunity for a new start. Once you’re settled you’ll love it!

  3. I love a deal, too, Fran! 🙂 And I love the green that pops up in the spring!

    • Liz, I am Such a sucker for a deal!! I’m trying to restrain myself at the moment though. I’m trying to sort through and get ready for a yard sale so I don’t need to be bringing in too much, unless it’s something I just can’t live without!

  4. Fall is my favorite time too, but of course having kids, summer is always a huge hit. My best friend is our easy up ( a big shade contraption) I take it to the pool, the beach, sports activities, I just love it. I am a shade girl all the way.

  5. Very funny! Would be even better if you were Irish! Any chance of that? haha I don’t know what I’m going to write, either, when I wake up on blog day, so that’s why I chose a theme (gratitude). I commend you for going theme-less. It must be even harder!! Keep up the great work, though; you’re doing fabulous!

    Waiter, drink please!

    • Thanks, Dana and I am a quarter Irish! I guess that all works out. I’m getting nervous with the letters though. It all came to me so easily last year. I need to concentrated and get myself a few ideas ahead and I’ll be all right. I’m am enjoying your so much!

  6. I like your green post Fran. This was fun.

  7. I love spring greens… I was looking at my dad’s asparagus and thinking it’s going to have to go some to be ready the same time as usual because of the cold, can’t wait till we get some proper spring!
    I’m also a real bargain-hunter; I feel much happier if I’ve bought something I know I’ve got a good deal on, and really proud of myself 🙂
    Love this challenge!
