7 days, 7 followers & now 3 ideas....

Seven days ago I started this mission to find people to suggest 40 things for me to do over 40 weeks to celebrate my 40th birthday.  I created this interactive blog to see if people would actually help me reach my goal & I'm actually getting feedback!  OMG!  This is great!

So as of tonight I have seven followers...woohoo!  And I have three ideas!  I want to wait till I get more before I say yes to them...but oh what the heck...yes to all three!!  On the list - a full body massage, hiking, & frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity in NYC.  Simple enough...yet fun. 

In my free time I've been checking out this blog site.  I've been reading through some blogs.  I love how the net brings us thisclose even though we are in different parts of the world.  So I keep landing on blogs about photography, cooking, crafts & scrapbooking.  Oddly enough, these are a few of my favorite things!

Speaking of photography...the other morning on my way out the door to work, there was this cute little snail that had made his way onto the frame of my hallway doorway.  He was so cute.  I couldn't resist taking a moment to shoot a photo of him.  And as always I had my beloved Canon Power Shot SD 770IS at hand.  I was rather amused that the snail was the perfect muse.  He was really a good sport. 

Check him out...

Yea...he was thrilled to see me w/my camera just snapping away at him.  Oh well.

So it's fall...my favorite time of year.  I love the colors around here.  This photo was taken locally during one of my many walks.


  1. I love the little snail!!! Just need to point out though, I mentioned Serendipity AND walking up the Empire State Building. Seems you only were interested in the chocolate part! :-)

  2. I love the little snail too! I have to order some prints from that photo shoot.

    As for the Serendipity & the walk up the Empire State Building...the walk can't happen. I called & checked it out. The only way up is in the elevator. Sorry.

    But feel free to think of other things to suggest.

  3. oh, well at least the Serendipity part is doable!

  4. Yup...hence why it made the list!

    Now I need more things to do...

  5. That landscape photo is amazing! I will think about something you should do.

  6. Thanks breugels! That shot was from my neighborhood. Taken during one of my nightly walks.
