How delicious. The wonderful Kate from Kate's Library gave me this perfectly pink, frosted cup cakey, perfect for a Friday award. People are lovely aren't they? Every so often that thought strikes me.
Yesterday I had to make a left turn. I dislike left turns and will go long distances to avoid them. They give me the same feeling I had in fourth grade when I had to stand up and recite a poem in French--everyone watching, sure I will get it wrong, yuck. But yesterday, as I waited in the middle of the intersection, starting to panic, a very nice old man in an enormous monster, fire breathing red, behemoth truck, staved off the oncoming hoards and cleared a place for me to go.
It is Hawaiian custom to wave to anyone on the road who has helped you: people waiting at the other side of a one lane bridge, people who let you in, and people who help you turn left. Actually you also wave to people you know, people you might know, people who drive the same car as people you know, grandmothers of people you know, and anyone who waves at you. You end up waving a lot. This man blew me a kiss and shouted, "Ya, you go get em". He shouted in pigeon, the local dialect, and it sounded like a cheerleading cheer. People are lovely.
So the Cherry on Top Award Rules:
1. Thank the person who gave it to me.
2. List three things I love about myself.
3. Post a photo that I love.
I already left her a note but just in case: Thank you Kate!
1. I can swim underwater a long, long way.
2. I can jump off a cliff.
3. I can listen tot he same song eleven times in a row.
I have a friend who says, "Ah but can you do this?" and twirls around. I can't do that.
So? Five Blogs? Can I do three and save two? One rainy day there will be a saved award fiesta at the plum bean.
