Invisible Wo!

It’s Friday and I’m gay. Five hours on the webcam with a former college friend, straight to Friday’s Fave Five, it’s a beautiful life oh oh ooo! (if I may borrow Ace of Base’s proclamation)

1. Researching Hazel. Although I’m aware of many Hazel disambiguations, there are only three things I‘m sure about the name: Hazel nut, Hazel tree and Witch Hazel. Launching a new blog that will house my daydreams sent my curiosity scouring the net for more. I enjoyed what I found and learned.

 2. New plans. An online chat with an aunt drifted off to Cj ‘s speech issues. She suggested her friend’s expertise and an uncle in PI rang another specialist he knows for me. I’m thankful for the concern of family.
3. The morning sunshine on wayside flowers. I made sure I took a shot of something pretty before all this talk of floods in the northeast sweeping down Bangkok materializes. I hope our roads remain dry though.

4. Starbucks hot chocolate and shitake cheese bruschetta worked well on a cold, rainy afternoon. The rains are connected to the talk of possible flooding. I set the worry aside and read financial news. A Bloomberg columnist observes,we’re past the time when a handful of rich, largely western economies could call the shots for the rest.”  “I know,” I mentally nodded. The hot choc tasted good.

5. Wes Bentley reciting The Conqueror Worm. He sounded gorgeous. I wish it was done similarly during American Literature class. It’s way better than poem animation. Once again I had my fix of beautiful language, “… A play of hopes and fears, while the orchestra breathes fitfully the music of the spheres..”  Not a bad way to be reminded of man’s mortality.

    Starbucks works anytime for me. :v)

    Lovely little flowers. Praying that you all stay safe and the floods are not as bad as expected.

    Whoa! Shitake cheese bruschetta … that sounds like a little piece of heaven right there! I’m more of a coffee than hot chocolate girl… but I LOVE some bruschetta!

    My husband had an Aunt Hazel… I never gave much thought to the name before though… it IS a color of eyes though too!

    My mother in law’s name is Hazel, though she goes by her middle name. My mom used to use witch hazel all the time.

    I’m glad your family had some ideas and resources for you.

    Those flowers are pretty!

      My recent research tell me Hazel is a very old name, originating as far back as the 15th century. It’s nice to know its associations in your part of the world.

  4. Your blog looks so pretty. Those wayside flowers are gorgeous. Isn’t it neat to hear a good recitation? And rare! Have a good weekend!

  5. I hear you on listing Starbucks. Sometimes that’s just the nicest, special treat!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

    Love your quote in #5. One of my sons had a speech therapist, and I saw a huge difference.

    Happy weekend!

    Our blogs lead us to research so many interesting things (like you did with Hazel), thats part of the reason I like it, it keeps me learning.

    Lovely flowers! And what can be said about hot chocolate, other than Yum? 🙂
