How I Named My Blog Day


While visiting Dana's blog this morning I discovered Ruth is having a How I Named My Blog Day. So...thought I would join in.
Lets see......I started a blog just about this time 2 years ago called Ageing Wisdom. I started blogging mainly because we were expecting our first grandchild and I wanted to journal about the experience. I think that name just popped into my head, without much thought behind it....getting old...being a Grandma....maybe I have become wiser.....Ha! I would have been ok keeping that blog and name, but when blogger decided to add the sidebar thing that shows the blogs that you follow....mine would not update. I liked that feature and the only thing I knew to do to get mine to update was to start a new blog all together. So that is when I chose the name "Days of My Life". There isn't anything interesting behind that thought. It is nothing more than a journal of my days. I do wish I would have put a more creative spin on my name though....I wish I would have named it "A Blip On The Radar" maybe.......because I think about how huge blogging has become and how many good blogs and nice people there are out in cyberville or cyberland ....to get to know.
I love all the creative names for blogs and enjoyed seeing some of them over at Ruth's. Thanks Dana for directing me there.

Maddie's Hat


Well, I finished Maddie's knitted hat. I had to make it up as I went along. I was using a free pattern, that made no sense to me, so I winged it all by myself. Now I am making her a poncho to go with it. Big coats are difficult to deal with with you are buckling them in the car seat. Hopefully it will be warm enough in the car. We have some snow in our forecast for Thursday. I am ready for it, I think. I have all the snow wear for her to enjoy building a snowman. I doubt we will get much accumulation though. I started putting up the tree and decor today. Hopefully I will finish it tomorrow.

Colors

I am not sure why I found this so fascinating but I did. I was looking at some of my blogs I visit occasionally on my reader and came across this colored pencil site where you can click on a group of them and see all the color names. Wouldn't that be a fun job? To try and come up with enticing names for colors. Well, it might be fun for awhile but maybe after doing it for a month or so, it could be challenging. Something like my Happy Thoughts blog. At first it was fun to try and come up with all the things about life that make me smile or feel good. Try doing that for a year though....you really do have to put more effort into observing things....and then you think...opps...already said that one 6 months ago. With colors, I suppose you can just rearrange the words around and make it seem like a different name or color even though it isn't . Like 'Orange Blossom' and later 'Blossom Orange.'


I used to sell Avon off and on for years, and had a lady who bought about 5 tubes of lipstick every 2 weeks. She confessed to me that she did not really wear all of them, she just loved the names they had and liked to look at the colors of them. Which reminds me...I have a drawer full of outdated makeup that I think I will try and use to do some kind of art work with, before they go in the trash. Ummmm....what could I come up with.
