365 days of blue lollipop road; day, well….errr…

On January 1st I started a 365 project. Mid-February I started falling a bit behind on posts and here we are on April 4th with a whole lot of days missing. (Translation; really behind.) Yikes!

My creative time gets limited here sometimes because I have to figure out ways to make money to pay my bills. (What a drag:) I want to do so much and often forget I’m only one person (who knew!) So, as I continue my bleeding heart commitments and true, true loves like BLR Play It Forward & The BLR Memorial Travel Scholarship Fund, some just-for-fun projects like 365 Days of Blue Lollipop Road fall off the radar/get delayed/postponed.READ MORE

365 days of blue lollipop road; day 43

2.12.14

Yep, that’s a couple of frozen biscuits (getting ready to be cooked on this snowy morning), the bottle caps (from the few beers my friends and I had during the snow slumber party last night), and a sugar container accompanied by a pen and some shoe laces (pulled from the kitchen junk drawer.)

The weird things you find entertaining when you are stuck inside like a caged animal.

Someone rescue me! The snow won’t stop.

This is where I found my Blue Lollipop Road today. Where did you find yours?

2.11.14

Holy moses these southern winter storms just won’t stop. The crazy part is how unprepared this part of the country is. I have to admit, being a Vermonter, It’s seriously entertaining watching the mad scramble freak out of the news, the schools, the stores, the peeps, the everything down here with the threat of a few inches of the white stuff. On the flip side, being a Vermonter I keep thinking- um, didn’t I move out of that wintery state for a reason? Where’s my North carolina sunshine?!

Thankfully I have awesome readers who warm me up with photos of things like their hot coffee and fire places! Today’s BLR from Grace:

How cozy does that look? I wish I was sitting in front of that fire all snuggled up right now…

Don’t you just love it when your pancake comes out of the kitchen with a swirl in the middle of it, that you can make into an “R?”

I do!

The rest of the deliciousness on that plate is the bottom half of my scrambled egg and cheese biscuit sandwich, and this amazing fresh made local blackberry jam that Zada Janes Corner Cafe’ has on every table. That jam calls to me! Twist my arm, jam! I guess I will have to slather you all over my fresh-made biscuit…yet again.

Mmmm. I love you, brunch.

365 days of blue lollipop road; day 39

2.8.14

It’s about 50 degrees and sunny today, which feels tropical considering the terrible weather we’ve been having here in the south this winter. Typically you’d never see anyone at that temperature down here walking around in shorts, however, everyone was out like caged animals set free today. It’s as if we can’t stand one more day of hibernation station.

Like a crazy person thinking I was in the Caribbean, I put on shorts and set out for what I like to call one of my Diane epic walks. (That means charge up the phone, grab the ear buds, a credit card in case of craving emergency, and leave the house wandering aimlessly for whatever amount of hours the mood strikes, and along the way listening to music, calling friends I haven’t talked with in a long time to catch up, taking photos, and/or peruse various stores, coffee shops, or other that look interesting.

I made Today’s BLR out of some uber dry little leaves during my epic all afternoon walk:

…while battling the wind, that kept blowing them away, just when I got ready to snap the photo:

I have to say it was fun to challenge mother Nature for a few minutes. (And fun to get outside for a little taste of spring that’s hopefully right around the corner.)

It was a word search Friday for one reader! Check it:

I love reader submissions! Who will be there next one?

I’m thinking day 39 might have an Olympic theme now that Sochi 2014 has officially kicked off and I am totally obsessed…:)

Tonight I watched NBC’s back story on a few of the Olympians who will be competing in Sochi, as I sipped wine and worked under my snuggly fleece blanket:

It pretty much felt like heaven.

UPS delivery from California today! A piece of art, made by an old Vermont high school friend who now lives in L.A, just for BLR 365:
