Flower Nymph

Wishing that I might be a flower nymph
With nary a burden nor care to bear
But to wear soft, crimson petals in my hair
as I travel along, the skies above so blue and fair...

"Heather the flower that weaves through her hair

Flower upon flower that grows beneath her step"

extracted from "Nymph Poem" by Michelle R. Morrison (May)

I'm so thankful for the weekend, dears! Well, aren't we all?
Although I'm down with a cold and am not feeling too well,
but it's nothing too serious so don't worry.
Anyway, I took the opportunity to complete some overdue tags
which were lovingly bestowed upon me!

Tag # 1 from Under Lock and Key

1. What books are on your favorite shelf?
Jane Austen books, Anne of Green Gables series, The Lovely Bones,
The Time Traveler's Wife, The Little Prince
2. What DVDs are on your favorite shelf?
Pride and Prejudice, Once, 10 things I hate about you, Becoming Jane, The Reader, Amelie,
P.S. I love you, Sex and the city.
3. What are your two favorite cookbooks?
Sadly I'm not so gifted in culinary skills, hence no cookbooks in my library.
4. Select 1-3 recipes you will cook for your special guests.
I may have to skip this part and have somebody else take over the cooking
in hopes of not poisoning any of my guests.
5. What will we be drinking that's available?
Fresh blended juices that's in my refrigerator.
What I need to do is list down seven random things about lil' ol' me and here goes:

1. My first trip out of Asia was to Sydney, Australia in 2005.
2. I have danced with a stranger in a foreign country before, as stated in no 1.
3. I'm in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend in Edinburgh.
4. He is actually six years younger than I am. Yes, you read that right...
5. We went on a Eurotrip last June, that was when we visited London, Rome, Venice, Florence, Paris, and Scotland, it was the happiest time of my life!
6. We are planning a second Eurotrip for next year and I'm to decide which part of Europe to go. But I can't make a choice because I can't choose one over the other! I need help!!
7. I just bought a skipping rope today in hopes of getting more exercise:P Let's cross our fingers!


In addition to the tags, I also received some awards from a few sweethearts,
Valencia of Roll Up Your Sleeve
and Ve from Know Ve Better

and another one from darling Rose of Roses r Red

Thank you girls!

Here's wishing all of you a wonderful "flower nymph" weekend:)

It must be really hard being in a long distance relationship, my bf is 20min drive from me and thats hard enough lol. My bf is younger too, but only by 6 mths :)
The Eurotrip sounds like SO much fun! Something I hope to do some day too.
Hope you are feeling better soon :)

I love the poem. The pictures go well with it too. Jane Austen novels are the best. There was a new adaptation of Emma in the UK last night. It was so good.
Oooh, Florence is amazing. I also visited there on a trip to Europe. You should go there again, or to another part of the UK. There's lots to see here.
