meme o'rama

In order to get back on track from ALL the activitiy of the past 2 weeks (2 college starts, a 2 week visit with D.'s parents, & a 4 day mini vaca - hey, 2+2 does = 4!!), I am keeping it light this week...
Time to catch up on some Memes...

Debi tagged me for "Middle Name" meme....
1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
4. At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

A- Abroad...where I want to be...as in travel abroad - as often as possible!

N- Not lonely...ever - 4 kids + 2 hounds + 1 husband = never lonely.

N- (I asked Little Man for help here...he said "nice" - thank you, but you know, he better say that as I do see to his food, clothing, shelter, & schooling! Then with a sly smile he said "naughty" - huh?? After some guilt - & my very best hairy eyeball stare - he said "new" - well thank you very much, but not quite! He's too absorbed in the weather online to really be of help right now.) But I think I (on my own) will go with Nasturtiums...
they are the prettiest flowers on my deck right now. I love their orangy hues & the way they spill out of their containers with wild abandon. They are also fab in a salad or frozen in ice for pretty presentation. (Little Man had no idea!)

And...Callista also tagged with this little adventure...Google Search Meme

The rules of this meme are simple:
1) Go to http://www.google.com/
2) Click on Google images
3) Type in your name and search
4) Repost (w/ a link) the picture of the oddest, craziest, strangest, coolest, oldest, etc. person that shares your name. Post multiples if you find a few you like.
5) Pass it on to at least 5 other people.

Well, plenty of "qalcosa di bello" ("something beautiful"- but I googled it in Italian) photos that came up in the search. No persons, but WOW!...some great pictures. Here are a few of my favorites...

If you would like to play along with either of these memes, consider yourself tagged! Have fun!

I'll probably play on Thursday or Saturday - I really like the Nasturtiums. Also, the picture of the white stairs/red flowers is absolutely lovely.

I was tagged for the middle name meme too, and I figure it'll be a good way to ease back into regular blogging when I'm ready...only I'm an "Ann" too, and you just took my A! Harumph!

Lovely, lovely photos :)

SPF...WELCOME BACK!!...little man is on top of the weather scene, from the west coast of africa to the eastern americas! now that i am home, he should updating us soon!

frances...yes those photos really are qualcosa di bello! i think you should make up a meme for your favorite name!

bri...i'll check it out on the weekend (i especially don't want to miss your fri. snippet!!)

sognatrice...that is *exactly* how i felt about memes when i returned! even though i have hundreds of cool photos & had lots of excellent experiences in the last month, that has to process & settle before i blog it. right now it's best to stay light!

sorry i took your "a"... that was the easiest letter for me!! bet you know why!
