Day Three of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge
C is for Color
Color makes me happy. I try to surround myself with lots of color where ever I am. There is something about being around lots of different colors that makes my heart smile. Here are just a few examples of the little, everyday items I find joy in– simply because of the color they bring to my day:
These are the things I use everyday at work. I’m constantly changing the pens I use to write and grade papers with. I also use a variety of dry erase markers– just because it’s more fun. And see my red stapler? Well, I love it. 😀
Rocks are among my favorite things… I have a lot more colors than these, but they usually end up in random places around my house and car because I am almost always carrying a rock with me. Call me weird if you’d like, but I like the way rocks feel in my hand. As you can see, I also have an enviable marble collection. All of these were given to me by students over the years. I don’t play with them. I enjoy looking at them because of all the pretty colors. They also remind me that my students love me.
Even my purse makes me happy!
When I learned it is possible to dye sheep on Minecraft, I went a little crazy with it. White & black sheep were turned into purple, red, orange, blue, yellow, and pink sheep. I felt like a sheep-dying fairy, running all over my Minecraft world, zapping sheep with different colored dyes. Their funny colors make me smile!
When the adult sheep “breed”, they have colored baby sheep.
In my kitchen, there are lots of colors, as well. I collect and use Fiestaware. My dishes come in all different colors- red, blue, peacock, yellow, cobalt, and more. I was going to include a photo of my dishes, but I realized almost all of them are in the dishwasher, waiting to be washed. If you’re not familiar with Fiestaware, you can check out their awesome stuff at the Homer Laughlin China Co. website.
Am I the only one who finds joy in having color around me? What types of colors make you smile? What is your favorite color?
Oh, in case you’re wondering, my favorite color is blue. I am drawn to any and all shades of blue.
