Paula Light’s challenge: , “Let’s celebrate the month of lurve (aka love) by posting one thing we love every day throughout February.
I love the color Pink. I love thin crunchy cookies.
I love sleeping in on Saturday. In fact, Saturday is my favorite day of the week.
I also love the planet Saturn.
When I was in grade school I remember looking at a chart of the planets and in one of the pictures Saturn was floating on water. I’m not sure why that endeared me to ” The Lord of The Rings ” but it did.
Annnddd to top it off, my Great Grandmother’s name is Saturnina.
I loved the the Roman God Saturnus too- he taught people about agriculture, his festivals were like Christmas and New Years all rolled into one. His partner was a goddess named Lua who was associated with plagues and destruction.
He sounded like an all around great guy to me.
Remember how I said my Great Grandmother’s name was Saturnina? Well, she had a daughter named Lua, we called her Lulu.
I don’t know what was going on with those names in my family. I guess they were big on Myths.
I was too, I loved Greek and Roman Mythology more then Fairy Tales. I could NOT get enough of them so I was pretty hip to the stories by the time I was about 13.
So there you have it-another day of lurve 🙂 and do you know what surprises me the most about this challenge?
I’ve been sort of grim and stressed and I really didn’t think I loved anything at this point. But I do… this challenge is actually a lot of fun!
