corner view "me"



Me

I am a product of frozen dinners, television, and angels.
I am brave, and at the same time afraid.
I am creative.
I am thankful.
I am in love.
Music is my drug of choice.
I believe compassion is the cure, breakfast is so much better at night, and Spain will win the next World Cup too... ;)

Thank you Soisses for this great idea!

This will be the last Corner View until September. Wishing all you Corner Viewers a happy August. Stay cool or warm- depending where you happen to be. Thank you all for your visits and nutty comments!

P.S. If you happen to think up any ideas for CV themes while you are lying on the beach or hunting moose, drop me a line. Thanks!

¡Dos besos muy gordos!

I grew up eating tv dinners too since my mother worked all day. Did you ever eat the enchiladas by Swanson. I was craving the coconut pudding from that dinner the other day. I know totally sick when I can have much better food now.

ibb said...

Lovely photo. And love those "alpargatas". In the university area, isn´t it?
Will be here til september. Summer working.
If you are here and need a coffee or an icecream, let me know.

My brother in law is from Holland. This was a painful loss. Always next year!! HA HA!

We really do love breakfast at night. Nothing like bacon and pancakes for dinner. I'm with ya there, sistah.

Kate Coveny Hood said...

I love this. I have realized how brave I am and have always been without knowing it. I actually think most people are. We're just so used to selling ourselves short.

Elisabelle said...

I love your "me" cv!
i posted mine one week ealier than i should have;)

Victoria @ Hibiscus Bloem said...

I like the way you described your 'Me'.
Wishing you a great summer.
See you in September.

Theresa said...

You're the best Jane.

Janis said...

Yes to all - I see you now, some of you :^) Velveta, Canned peas, and Brady Bunch. Similar - my hair should be falling out!

Compassion, a must. Breakfasts for dinner, also a must :^)

Have a wonderful summer dear Jane xo!

oh yes, your espadrilles do remind me of holidays in france. i always wore them the whole day long and every single color is great. once saw a little espadrille shop in barcelona and had a lovely brown pair (still remember it)

i don't see them around here, but will try to find some.

this year we don't visit spain and i will miss it a lot. (although i'm looking forward to fly to greece, where we used to go island hopping 20 years ago)

but i'm a spain-lover, especially the 'unknown' places.

enjoy your holiday jane!
cheers,
ingrid

I wish I had such a lighted mind to join all of you in CV, your posts are always so clever.
Big besos sweetie :)

Alejandra Alcantara said...

Just got here right when you are about to leave for the summer holiday! Well, I'll look forward to seeing you again in September.
Love your blog!

Mlle Paradis said...

they probably don't use this word much in either spain or california - but jane, you are a mensch! you do have a lovely way of bringing people together and aside from waffles for dinner (do you get waffle irons in spain?) i like best that you are brave and that you are in love and that you wrote us a poem!

what i'm liking less is that you've been in mexico and morocco already this spring and NOW you're taking the rest of the summer off!!!!!!! nice life!!!! (so jealous!)

but really - enjoy!

tanïa said...

Jane, thanks a lot to bring all of those MEs together by giving the possibility to look in other people's lives!

Wish you very happy holidays, lots of photo-souvenirs, and I am so looking forward to next corner view in september!!
