10 on Tuesday: Things That Are My Favorite Color

Now that my vacation is well and truly done – as in, I was at the office today – it’s time to get back to more normal blogging, like doing a 10 on Tuesday list. I was initially a little stumped by Carole’s prompt, things that are my favorite color, because I don’t really have a favorite color; it changes from day to day. Sometimes green, sometimes purple… and sometimes aqua, which is what I chose for the list.

1. Probably 1/3 of the shirts I own.

2. Some opals. (The nice ones, as far as I am concerned.)

3. Blue margaritas.

4. My bedroom walls.

5. Glaciers. (As I just learned in Alaska.)

6. The yarn I bought in Alaska that reminds me of the glaciers.

7. Swimming pools.

8. Aquamarines.

9. The pen I was taking notes with at work today.

10. My eyes. (Sometimes, anyway. They’re sort of changeable.)

    Sarah, I’m like you in that I have no single favorite color.

    1. Beach blue
    2. Sunlight caught in the trees and bouncing through the leaves
    3. Our kids’ eyes…each has a distinct shade of blue, and one even has flecks of Crayola’s sea green thrown at times, and I LOVE getting the chance to stare into any of them.
    4. The deep green found in a misty forest
    5. The original color of my Mom’s hair…a deep warm brown that actually looked good as it started to gray
    6. We painted the family room in our former house a very soothing shade of yellow, not to pastel, not too bright, just warm and calm (maybe the paint swatch had “moonbeam” in the name?).
    7. Glacier blue
    8. Lively apple green

    On a side note, you seemed to have omitted “Capitals Red” (yes, the NHL has trademarked some colors)?

      Honestly, I don’t really like red that much at all – especially to wear (I am way too ruddy complected to look good in it) so it’s actually a bit of a bummer that both the Caps and the Nats focus on the red of their red, white, and blue uniforms. I’d be much happier w/ blue!

    Blue – I love the variety of all it’s shades and hues
    1. James eyes
    2. The sky, especially on a crisp fall day
    3. My Le Crueset pot
    4. The blue water of the ocean, especially when offset with a white sand beach
    5. Blue jeans – my favorite non pj pants
    6. Hydrangeas (and bonus that they also come in purple & pink)
    7. Blue bird eggs
    8. Bluejays
    9. My junior prom dress, which was blue with iridescent sparkles
    10. Its more turquoise, but I love the blue tops on the white building in Santorini, Greece. We stayed in these fantastic villa’s – check out their views online and you’ll see what I mean http://chelidonia.com/

    Ps. I also love purple.

    I’m a blue person in the guise of teal/turquoise.

    My blues tend to be in the turquoise/teal range but as I read your list, I realize I also like a lot of your blues.
