sweat [ swet ]
moisture on skin: the clear salty liquid that passes to the surface of the skin when somebody is hot or as a result of strenuous activity, fear, anxiety, or illness
state of having sweat on skin: the production or secretion of sweat, e.g. during strenuous activity or illness, or a state of fear or anxiety that causes this [my i.e. during a scorching summer that has not even really officially become Summer - June 20th for those who have no clue when it begins, officially]
Greeting from the Sizzling South,
It's H.O.T! here in the south people, plain and simple. We are only in the second, uh, make that the third week in June and the sweltering heat has taken over. Every time we get into the car my daughter begins her summer chant [read moaning and groaning], "I can't breathe, I can't breathe, I can't breathe."
I say bring it on. I love the heat. It's like taking a hot bath. [Literally with all the sweat] It gets the blood flowing and soothes me. Every time one of my boys complains of the excessive amount of perspiration coming from his body I remind him, "honey, the more you sweat, the more toxins you get rid of." Sounds vital when I say it, but his empty gaze/groan of "REALLY?" say otherwise.
So, on these lazy and hot days of summer I am going on a walk, stroll, saunter, amble, tour, wander, trip, through blog world. I was first inspired by my sweet friend Becky who asked her Facebook friends what was their favorite blog they like to read. Great question Becky, thanks. [Becky, whom I have know since her birth and babysat when she was little. She's all grown up now! Love ya Becky]. My answer was The Pioneer Woman. The Woman makes me laugh, inspires me to want to be a photographer and shares the best [non-low-fat] recipes in the world.
Second, now being a member of the Homeschool Crew, there are so many new friends to meet in blog world. Consequently, I wanted to share these blogs with you. I am amazed at the beautiful women I am finding who have such strength and faith as they share their triumphs and struggles in this roller coaster ride of Life. That leads to our Blog Walk. A Blog Walk is a fun way to find new blogs that may share a common interest or concern. My new friend at Mrs. Mandy's Musings was kind enough to pass on this fun idea and my blog was one of ten she selected to feature on her blog. Thanks 'Mrs. Mandy'!
I have chosen 'Blog Walk - About'. In this heat and considering the journey it will take us on it just seemed right. I checked out Urban dictionary and their definition of walk-about just Fit!
Mick found love on his walk-about
"Background: Australian. Given to us by Crocodile Dundee: A spontaneous journey through the wilderness of one's choosing in an effort to satisfy one's itchy feet, a need to be elsewhere, the craving for the open road, that space over the horizon...yes... something like that... you can't quite touch it so you have to go find it because it's... you just know it's there...Or maybe it just feels good to go walking around ...
:wink: Yeah. It's WALKABOUT."
John Locke found his legs again
Our walk of course is virtual but the idea is the same. And in the the spirit of welcoming a new neighbor, I am getting to know some of my new crew-mates from the TOS Homeschool Crew at the same time. So, here we go. Join me on this 'Blog Walk-About' and journey through blog-world. [simply click on the underlined word(s) to access each site]

So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. -Genesis 1:27
It speaks volumes to me.
It simply made me happy. I can't explain why. It just is what it is.
Epiphany! That's it! This sign speaks to the rebel spirit in me that's says "I am not the Perfect Beauty and I never will be. I'm not the smartest girl on the block and I never will be. But! I AM passionate, and know what I like (and I am at times eccentric - which by the way freedictionary.org says I am a person with an unusual or odd personality - I still say Passionate) and always will be.
I am embracing my flaws and learning to love who God created me to be. As Caitlin Crosby put it, "Love your Flawz - Imperfect is the new perfect."
I just may have to purchase this sign (click link below picture above) when they come back in stock. Isn't that funny? This sign seems to have struck a cord with a lot of people.
