Fun with Sunsets this Week in Clearwater

Clearwater Florida –  Each Sunday we feature one of that weeks sunsets. Today you get a bonus in addition to a Clearwater Florida Sunset you also get and 7 Fun Facts about me. “Why” you’re asking? Well…because I got tagged by San Mateo Real Estate agent, Vicki Moore, to participate in the 7 Facts About Me challenge. This challenge was started by Liz Fuller on her blog called More Than WE Know about Women Entrepreneurs. The Challenge is to share 7 fun facts about yourself and then tag 7 other women then Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog. So first here are the rules: 1) Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog. 2) Share 7 facts about yourself. 3) Tag 7 random people and include links to their blogs. 4) Let each person know they have been tagged and comment on their blog.

Seven Fun? Facts about Me

  1. I spoke Spanish before I spoke English growing up and unfortunately didn’t use it and lost most of it – which is my only regret in life :-);
  2. I learned how to drive a stick shift car in 1 day and drove from Philadelphia PA to Houston Tx the next day to go to work for Houston Lighting and Power for my Computer Science internship job while in was in college at the University of Florida.
  3. I stayed home for 5 years when we had our boys and learned to paint, became a certified instructor and taught during that time and it was the way I got my  “adult girlfriend time”. One of my favorite things to paint is glassware and I designed a series of “Wild Women” glasses to enjoy our wine with!
  4. When I was 6 years old my brother and I spent the summer with my Grandmother in Guatemala and since my hair was fine and tangled easily my Mom went “low maintenance” and cut it so short before I left that everyone asked me if I was a boy or a girl all summer 🙂 I also have a younger sister.
  5. We home-school our two boys which is always an adventure.
  6. My favorite vacation or getaway is any place with a great beach – I love the tropical lifestyle.
  7. I changed the spelling of my name when I was 12 and feeling “creative” – so Cindy became Cyndee and stuck!

So as the sun sets here in Clearwater Florida – I know this is not the post you are use to and I hope you enjoyed it none the less – it’s a great reminder to step out of the box – explore and learn more about other interesting people around you – even though I was asked to name seven there were many others that came to mind. So this week I challenge you to learn a little bit more about someone new!

My wish for you this week is that your week be full of new experiences like the promise of each sunrise and the beauty of each sunset.

  1. Hi Cyndee,
    A fun post! Looks like you’ve always been a pretty independent thinking changing the spelling of your name at 12. Sounds just like you!

  2. Lynda – you have me rolling on the floor – that’s why you’re my s’hero – you are so wise – I need you in my life! Yep, no wilting flower here – now you know that Jack’s a saint after 21 years of marriage! 🙂

  3. Susie Roscoe says:

    What a fun post! YOU changed the name? I want to see your driver’s license next time we get together. Did you do it LEGALLY??? I gotta know! Even funnier…you gave your kids EASILY SPELLED NAMES so they wouldn’t have people mispell it all their lives. WHAT were you thinking???

    Great post Cyndee!! NOW…where’s Jack’s 7 secrets?

    ~~Susie Roscoe~~ Brandon, FL

  4. Mary De Luca says:

    Cyndee- I just had to come here today to see your sunset. It’s 26 and cold here in DC. Brrrrr….. And my mother cut my hair when I was a kid for the same reason. That also confused people on whether I was a boy or a girl.
    The funny thing is- I find myself telling my dog that he’s getting a hair cut because his coat gets knotted and he won’t let me brush it. So I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
    Thanks for the little bit of warmth with the sunset.

  5. Cyndee, Love the picture of the sunset.
    Well now I have to drink out of your painted wine glasses!! :0)

  6. Mary – glad to be your winter respite! Always got room in the hammock for you!

    Missy – yep – it was a surprise and it worked out perfectly today!

    Mana – you’d love them – gotta find a photo of them to share some time!

  7. Cyndee, didn’t know that spanish was your first language, too. Nice to learn a bit more about you.

  8. Well, that was a fun and interesting read. I went through a period of time where I also tried spelling my name with a ‘y’ – thought it looked better.

    Can I crawl into the hammock as well. It’s cold here too!

  9. Gena – looking forward to learning more about you too!

    Elaine – there’s always a spot for YOU in the hammock (and Murph too) – it’s been rainy the last few days but warm and we always can use the rain.
