Lily in the RAIN ~ 1/2/11
WEEKWORD resumes.... I was tapped as "host" a week ago, but judging from the number of bloggers who were on holiday break, I took the "liberty" of skipping a week to "ease us" into the NEW YEAR!!

I'm looking forward to 2011! Although I don't like "ODD NUMBERS" (this year ends in 11 or 1, depending on how you look at it), I'm eager to see what 2011 has in store for me, my relationships, home, health, work (paid employment & creative work), my community, our nation, and the world!

So - for those of you unfamiliar with "WEEKWORD" ~ it is an opportunity to share your "creative" interpretation of a word selected by a host - which for this week is... ME!

Creative interpretation = collage, photo, cartoon, story, joke, poem, painting, etc ~ basically something you can post on your blog, which is viewed by participating "WEEKWORD" bloggers.

  • First step: (I'm sounding like an educator, huh!!?) Leave me a note in the comment section below that you want to participate!
  • Second step: Create.... for some participants, the "WEEKWORD" conjures an immediate image, memory, or response; but for others (like me), I often don't know what I'll post until the deadline.
  • Third step: Post your "WEEKWORD" interpretation on your blog by the end of the day, Friday January 7th. 
  • Fourth step: Stop by my blog on Friday (1/7/11) to see the list of bloggers participating. Visit the blog(s) & leave a comment or note that you've visited...
  • Fifth step: Invite your blog visitors to participate... WEEKWORD is open to anyone ~ in fact, I'm going to go back through the list of previous participants to let them know WEEKWORD has resumed!
  • BTW - I started participating in WEEKWORD back in July, click HERE and ALSO HERE... but, I believe WEEKWORD was started by my artistic blogger friend from Denmark, FruensWerk but, read about it first from AIMEE @ ARTSYVILLE. Don't you love their creativity?? 

It's a fabulous way to meet new bloggers! resume former blog friendships!! & give you a "creative burst" for your own blog!!! 
Who doesn't need more friends? & after the holidays, I need some help with "creativity"....

SO - drum rolllll..... pleeeesssee!


I love the SIMPLICITY of flowers in the rain... washing away the dust & dirt... bringing freshness to the garden... perhaps you've put away your holiday decorations & are reveling in the SIMPLICITY of your home? or digging through your recipes to create something that revamps your eating habits (after indulgent holiday feasting)? 
What does SIMPLICITY mean to you?


  1. Excited to start again! Nice word to start with! Count me in!!

  2. 1. Count me in!

    2. I read this as the weekword being resume as in re-su-may.

    3. LOVE your new header.

  3. I think I can handle this...who doesn't like to talk about themselve.

    Now lets talk about your new header...very, very impressive love the pictures and the graphics. I think we are both having fun! Take care

  4. i'm gonna try to get in on this action! committing to play gets me one step closer. great word!

  5. Looking forward to returning to the simplicity of routine. 'Til Friday!

  6. Great work, Chris - I'm in and hope I'll come up with something until Friday (now you know which category I belong to). I love your new header!

  13. Ding, ding-a-ling!
    Ringing in the New Year with a "Yes, I'm in."

  14. Thanks for all the comments on my new header... JPE wondered if there was a subliminal message when he noticed the "pop-up hoME" was cropped leaving the letters "ME"...
    Also, I would rather have included three pics (odd numbers are best in gardening - as my brother reminds me often - horticulture, landscape architect)... but couldn't find another pic & wanted to get the header changed & posted.

  15. Oh yes, Christine, I absolutely want to participate! This is one of my favourite words!! Thanks for letting me know. /E.

  16. Hi Chris!

    Thanks for poking me on my blog, I've been on such a little mental hiatus :) I'm looking forward to participating this week, and so glad it's you to get us grooving for the new year! I'll mimic others here when I say I absolutely adore the new blog look and the header, it's gorgeous!!

  17. I would love to participate! Count me in.

  18. Wonderful word. I'm playing too!!

  19. I think I'll try this. It looks like fun :D

  20. Are we supposed to put our links here or somewhere tomorrow?

  21. This comment has been removed by the author.

  22. gosh! I need to get to bed... had to delete the last post (two spelling errors)...
    merrytait... click on each bulleted name (1/6/11 post) - it should take you to each participating blogger. Let me know if it doesn't work.

  23. Thanks.


    Actually, if they have until the end of the day today, maybe I should wait until tomorrow? :-D

    In any case, I'll be looking forward to it! :-D
