whimsical wednesday

the article about ordinary things posted for miscellaneous monday got me to thinking about ordinary as a whimsical wednesday activity so here goes! if you haven't read monday's post about ordinary things do so to get in the spirit of whimsical wednesday. after reading the article, create a list of your top five ordinary things to do, in no particular order. then do at least one of them today! share your list and ordinary activity with the whimsey project!

my top five ordinary activities:

1. stay at home
2. sit on the porch
3. chop vegetables
4. watch old episodes of gunsmoke and perry mason on tv
5. give the dog and kitties treats

it's not even nine a.m. and i have already done three of the five. maybe i'll do the other two as well.

solitude sunday

we spend time with a book on solitude sunday. my visit with keith houston's shady characters: the secret life of punctuation, symbols & other typographical marks continues. the hyphen and dash were featured in the chapters i read today. i came away thinking, "how could a simple, short, straight line have so many meanings as well as configurations?".
