A Little About Me
This little blog of mine has seen a few transformations since its beginning. It started out as a joint venture with my sister, who quickly decided that keeping up with a blog wasn’t for her. Somehow, she knew it was gonna be right up my alley though, and she was right. I surprised myself by dipping my toes in the big blogging ocean and loving it enough to jump in with both feet.
I call it One Ordinary Day because it’s a perfect name for what I hope you’ll find here. Things that happen during one ordinary day in my life. Most of the time, that means things that come out of my kitchen, but through those recipes and stories, you’ll get a glimpse of my day. My family. My passions. Me. And when I come across something I can’t resist, I’ll share that too.
You’ll also find a couple extra pages here that focus on two things that are important to me ~ going green and reading. I’ve been called a “treehugger” and I consider that a compliment. I’m certainly not as green as I should or could be, but I try, and working on Going Green Tips has really helped. Some things are just common sense and others are things you might not have thought of. Even if you change your habits in one or two ways, you’re on the right track to helping give the next generation a better world to live in.
And as for reading, Jim jokingly calls me a “book snob,” but I like that too. I love coming across a book that broadens my world or makes me see things in a new way. You’ll find an ever-growing list of the books I’ve read in 2010 at What I’m Reading. It’s a pretty eclectic list. Some of those I’ve shared with a book club I host at our local library, but most I’ve enjoyed on my own. I get positively giddy when a find a book I love and can tell someone about it.
Now you know what to expect from my little blog. I hope you’ll find something that keeps you coming back!
