Olly, Olly Oxen Home and Free!

Apparently I have been tagged by one of my favorite bloggers. Erikka over at The Extra Ordinary has tagged me to write an archive meme. Basically, it sounds like I need to go through my old blogs and pull out five that fit into certain categories. What fun!

#1 Family
I Heart Squash Pie is a good example of a post about family.

#2 Friends
Field Trip talks about my friend Mary and how hard she is working to make green changes in her life.

UPDATE: Today Mary's youngest daughter had a birthday party. (Happy Birthday Sasha!) The favor was a pencil made from recycled newspapers. Who knew pencils could be made from newspapers? Mary has out-greened me.

#3 Me
This was a tough one. I haven't talked about too many personal details as of yet. I will have to work on that one.
September Resolutions did reveal that I was a teacher in my past life. About that resolution. It isn't going too well...

#5 Up For Grabs
Come Visit My Compost Bin is about my love for cheesy television. Remember when there were first-run television shows on?

Now, I get to tag five more bloggers that I am interested in learning more about.
Katis at Un-Named Blog
Michelle at This is Framingham
"Bean" at Green Bean Dreams
Dolphyn at Verbose Means I Ramble
and here is a blog that is different from the rest;
Michelle at Ghost Hunting Secrets

Here are your Archive Meme Instructions: Go back through your archives and post the links to your five favorite blog posts that you've written. ... but there is a catch: Link 1 must be about family. Link 2 must be about friends. Link 3 must be about yourself, who you are... what you're all about. Link 4 must be about something you love. Link 5 can be anything you choose. I think this is a great way to circulate some of the great older posts everyone had written, return to a few great places in our memories and also learn a little something about ourselves and each other that we may not know. Post your five links and then tag five other people. At least TWO of the people you tag must be newer acquaintances so that you get to know each other better....and don't forget to read the archive posts and leave comments!

Why thank you so much, Gruppie Girl for the tag.

I loved your post about "Mary". I am definitely guilty of overwhelming people with my green-ness. Someone mentions buying organic and I also encourage buying local. I recently read the following post and was inspired to bite my tongue. Your field trip was a wonderful way to encourage someone to take the first, and most important, step down the green path.

As for the mem, to borrow a line from Chile, I'm so fast, I've already completed it! ;-) Check out this link:

Thank you again for thinking of me!
