Book Lovers Day

You are probably thinking to yourself right now…Uhh Lolsy…That was last Wednesday…Trust me when I say when I realised what day it was, my heart actually did break a little…What kind of Library doesn’t know about Book Lover’s Day…I can tell you that and Australian one doesn’t At first, my thought was too simply write about it on the Thursday, but then I thought that was too fake and then I realised that I shouldn’t feel guilty about it.

When I did some digging around Australia doesn’t really have a book lovers day. We have book lover things that happen around Valentine’s Day and other book events during the year that so bring importance to reading and that day is called “Library Lovers Day”. I think that’s it’s more of a American Day.

Every day should be Book Lovers Day

“Days” happening this weekend

  • World Elephant Day (12th of August

About – World Elephant Day  

Elephants what can I say about them, the term “gentle giants” come instantly to mind. It breaks my heart every single time I hear about an elephant, young or old, they are sweetest animals ever. They are very much up there with Dogs, when I think about kindness. As much as I love Lions, elephants are on such a rapid decline and they deserve our protection. It’s the least that we can do.

Share Your World .. July Week 2017

Share Your World…July 24, 2017

(I feel like I should explain here why my title say July Week 4 and the link say “July 24th. You see Cee’s Photography posts the Share Your World questions on the Monday, but I tend not to get around to them until The Thursday. I just felt that it would be a little confusing if I posted Mondays date on a Thursday.)

List some of your favorites types of teas.

I love the usual black tea with milk, I usually have that a couple of times a day. The others I’ll have, I usually am not very feeling when I have them. I have just lemon tea, so literally just a cut up lemon, soaking in hot water. The other two teas that I drink when I’m not feeling well. That can be either when I have a cold or a “self-inflicted” type illness. I guess the other tea that I enjoy is “Chai Tea”, I have that maybe once or twice a year. I usually have it when I want to drink something sweet, but I don’t want to be feel unhealthy either.

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?

I think it would have to be the yellow/amber light on a traffic light. It’s a kind of traffic sign right? I feel like I’m constantly having to slow down, even though I really don’t want too and then have to stop, even though I really don’t want too. I want to keep going, I don’t want to stop, because when I stop I’m not making money,lol. I don’t have the ability to either keep going or just take off.

What are a couple of things could people do for you on a really bad day that would really help you?

  • Bake me a lasagna!
  • Not pay me out while I hug my plushies =P
  • Not keep talking to me once the ear phones have gone in!

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do do?   Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed.

Wooo, this is a good one. There are quiet a few things I would love to be able to do. I would love to be a Gymnast. They are incredible, they are so athletic and I love the whole jumping and making it look flawless and like it’s no effort.

How many languages do you you speak?

I only speak the one language, unfortunately. I can say bits and pieces of German, but they are very small  bits and pieces. I can count to 10, say good morning and good night, mother and father and that is it really.  I would love to be able to speak another language, but I struggle with English as it is,lol.

What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?

  • Reading: Hindsight by Melaine Casey. I’m actually reading 3 different books right now,lol
  • Watching: I’m not really watching a series or anything right now, I have a lot of stuff taped though that I’m getting through.
  • Listening: I’ve been listening too  a lot of Fantasy and Celtic type music. I’ve been getting back into meditating, crafty things and I find this kind of music helps me to keep creative.
  • Eating: I’ve been trying to eat a lot more healthy at the moment, I’m hoping it’ll help with my anxiety issues. I think it actually is making a difference, I am noticing the differences, because I am now aware of the differences.

What was the last photo you took with your phone?

What is your favorite time of day?

This can depend on the day as well honestly, if I’m not working I enjoy the actual day, especially when I’m doing chores around the house, or I’m doing things that make me feel like I’ve done something with my day off. On the day that I’m working or get called in (because I’m a causal) my favourite time would be between that time when you first get home and that time when you’re start getting dinner ready.

Share Your World … Week 29

What is the perfect pizza?

Without a doubt, when I’m in a hungry mood…or have had a few, I love myself a Domino double bacon cheeseburger…It is amazing! However when I want to feel a bit more “healthier”…As healthy as non-vegetarian pizza can be…I will have a Hawaiian type Pizza.

What is your favorite time of day?

Definitely that time of the day, when you’ve finally relaxed and not actually thinking. Just after you’ve made dinner and you’re sitting down to watch your favourite program.

Show us two of your favorites photographs?  The photos can be from anytime in your life span.  Explain why they are your favorite.

Only two?! I especially like the photos from when I was younger, but also all of my fur and feather babies.

Complete this sentence:  I’m looking forward to…. 

Spending any time at all with my partner this weekend. He’s been on holidays for the past two weeks and we’ve spent little time together. Due to other people, which is funny because everyone has a go at as not spending enough time together.

Happy Earth Day

If you had notice, you might have noticed that your Google browser has changed and that is because today is Earth Day (website)! This is the 46th year that the Earth Day organisation has been around for.

It’s a great day to stop and reflect on how lucky we are to have such a beautiful planet. A planet full of life, full of wonderful and beautiful things. Wonderful, beautiful things that are full of wonder and “how did that happen”?.

So get off the social media today (yes, I see the irony in writing this on a “social” place) Head outside, take a moment to breath in that air, except if it’s full of pollution. That’s kind of the point of Earth Day though really. To see and appreciate what we have here, what we have here now. To protect what we have because if we don’t it wont be here forever ❤

This or That #35

So today I want to know if you ….

Read in the morning

OR 

At night 

OR

(yes I’m being nice and adding another option) In the middle of the day

Honestly it can depend on the weather, most of the time, and if I’m not working, I enjoy reading through the middle of the day…Then it ends up going into the night time. My brain tends to be more fuzzy at night and I just like to think simply at night. When I’m reading my mind is full and it likes to imagine every single detail, so it can be harder for me at night.

International Women’s Day

All my ladies, where you be at?! Today is the day to celebrate and support the beauty that is you! The greatness that is your smartness, the awesome person that you are.

Today is also the day to get inspire and see how you can also help support and celebrate other women. Not just the other women in the your life, but those women who are not so lucky. How will you mark today?

One of the first places that I would suggest taking a look at, to help you get inspired or is you are asking yourself “What can I do?” Have a look at the website International Womens Day … What can you do?! One of the great functions about this website is that you can look at your country and state and see what events they have.

Also look for the hashtag #PledgeforParity
