Renaissance Soul Randomness Posts

Like any true Renaissance Soul, I’m fascinated by a seemingly endless variety of topics. I love learning new things and squirreling away new tidbits of information like treasure. Here, I’ll share some of the interesting things I come across in the off chance that they might just interest you too. Serendipity, baby!

Renaissance Soul Randomness:

An eclectic mix off things that demanded my attention. Pushy little things, aren’t they?

Photo Friday:

A random selection of pictures I’ve taken of things I like, views that interest me, or scenes that inspire me.

Cafe Dog in Bayeux (6/16/2017) - After so many D-Day posts, I thought I would lighten up the mood a bit by sharing this. I took this photo a few days ago, impressed by this shaggy little dog’s patience and discipline while waiting for his or her owner who was in the cafe. I think this pup earned a pain au chocolat (my fave!). This must be a regular ritual for them because I spotted the […]
Goodreads Shelves (5/1/2017) - I track my books on Goodreads and often read other people’s reviews after finishing a book to see how my opinions compare to others, particularly when I diverge from the majority. I came across this Goodreads user’s shelves on such an occasion and they made me laugh out loud. My shelf labels are pretty boring in comparison. Her review of the book was just as honest and entertaining as the […]
Busy Body (4/14/2017) - The human body is a miracle of form and function. I'm always amazed at how intricate we are.
Dialogue without quotation marks. Why? (4/10/2017) - I recently read 1 yet another book in which the author decided not to use quotation marks to indicate dialogue. This is normally a signal to me that I am not going to like the book. I’m not sure why – perhaps it’s because it indicates to me that the author is more interested in form and being “artsy” or “nonconformist” than in the story itself and clarity for the […]
Nyhavn, Copenhagen (3/31/2017) - Historic and picturesque Nyhavn
All in one glass (3/23/2017) - I enjoy a good glass of wine every now and again but I’m pretty uninformed about the whole thing, so I’ve been doing some reading and came across this lovely quote. Cheers! Sure we all swig sometimes, but what separates wine from apple juice and root beer is the possibility of going so much deeper. You can discover chemistry, agriculture, marketing, politics, history, psychology and geology, all in one glass. […]
Bella Sky Breakfast voucher Breakfast Voucher (3/18/2017) - I found this breakfast voucher from my hotel in Copenhagen this morning and gave it to my husband. He made me an omelette. #Winning. I have the best husband. I also have 4 more vouchers… 😀
Hotel conveniences I wish I had at home (3/16/2017) - Several years ago, I stayed at a resort in Cyprus and fell in love with a small chest that sat on the bedside table. Open the lid and you see a map of the room with little buttons that let me turn on and off all the lights in the room and the fan, all without getting out of bed. This time, I’m in Copenhagen and my room features a […]
Good Luck Frog (3/13/2017) - Everyone needs a nice gold-plated good luck frog, right? #hotel-bling
downtown Tampa Florida Fog (1/6/2017) - We came out of the hockey arena a few nights ago to this view of fog shrouding the tops of downtown Tampa, which was cool yet slightly creepy and oppressive at the same time.
