I’ve decided to join in on the Sowell Life‘s Friday Five link up! I enjoy reading Joy’s blog and meeting fellow bloggers each week through the link ups. So, here’s my Friday Five:
When I started blogging, someone introduced me to a few websites that will send you product samples for free in exchange for a review on your blog. It took me a few weeks, but the product samples have slowly been rolling in. I’m really excited. Who doesn’t like free stuff?
Last year, I planted my very first raised-bed garden. It was a lot to learn and a lot of hard work. But, the harvest was amazing. It is shocking what a few seeds, some soil, sun, and water can produce. My little 5X5 bed produced enough snap peas, tomatoes, peppers, and spinach to feed my family all summer long! The feeling of pride and accomplishment that I felt when I served my family a dinner featuring sides from my garden gave me the momentum that I needed to make vegetable gardener an entry on my resume.
3. Centennial Celebration of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
This week, about 300,000 of my closest friends and I will be continuing the year-long celebration of our beloved sorority turning 100 years old! Delta Sigma Theta is a sisterhood of college-educated women dedicated to promoting academic excellence and providing service to those in need. Happy Centennial, Delta Sigma Theta! One hundred sure looks good on you!
Since I’m a pro at vegetable gardening (what are you laughing at?), I decided to try my hand at growing flowers, too.
For whatever reason, I have the sudden urge to play the piano. When I was little, I took piano lessons, but I hated it! Literally. Now, twenty years later, I’d give my right arm to be a talented pianist. So, I’ve dusted off my old books, turned to YouTube (you can learn to do ANYTHING on YouTube), and reintroduced my fingers to the black and white veneer-covered spruce.
Have a great weekend!
