K, K, What begins with K?

Here are the rules: Comment on this entry and if you'd like to play, I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter in your blog, including an explanation of why you chose it, and then pass out letters to those who want to play along.

Jane gave me "K".

kiwi - one of my favorite fruits. It's beautiful when sliced, first of all. Such an incredible shade of green! And it tastes so good with other fruits, in salads, on pie. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm... and I've passed this obsession onto my 19 month old. He could eat them nonstop.

Kronos Quartet - one of my favorite string ensembles because they are well trained in a variety of music genres and create a plethora of sounds and moods with their original compositions. Their music is considered "contemporary" or "modern" and is an acquired taste for some. But they are just such an incredibly talented group!

Krakow, Kiev - 2 of my most memorable stops while touring with an orchestra. Krakow is an amazing city. I wans't there for long and can't wait to go back and spend more time there. The street market is out of this world. Kiev is a sad city, but the host family I stayed with taught me so much about humility. I enjoyed performing there simply because of the look on the audience members' faces - how it transformed with the music we played!

kicks - I'm feeling the last of them. :( We don't plan on having any more children. I haven't enjoyed much of my pregnancy, but I will sure miss the little flutters, jabs, and kicks.

kisses - Oh how I love to kiss my children. They are so soft and chubby and taste so sweet! I am definitely to blame for how affectionate they are, but I don't care! Unlimited kisses are my right as a mommy.

kite - We plan on taking the kids to the park on Monday to fly a kite. It will be our first official day of summer! Interestingly enough, this is something we've only done while I'm on bedrest. We have a big open field near our house and I just kick back in the car and watch the kids run around with Daddy. I might not enjoy it as much were I not simply observing. I focus in on their little faces and their delighted expressions and just love to watch them run, run, run!

kung pao chicken - yum, yum... I love Chinese food, but especially the flavorful dishes!

kimono - I think kimono style shirts and dresses (for women) and even little onesies for babies are super, duper cute. I just love the style. And of course, the original design and the fabrics used are simply gorgeous! How fun it would be to get all decked in a real kimono and learn how to properly take tea!

kolaches - My favorite breakfast food! With a big, sloppy dohnut and hot chocolate. :)

Klimt - I just love his art. I saw some originals when I was in Poland. And it was such a treat. Like being in heaven!


Let me know if you'd like to play!!!

Wow. You just gave me a whole list of things to google and learn about! And I'm sorry you haven't enjoyed much of this pregnancy. Have fun on Monday!

Kristen said...

Great list!!

I don't think we're having anymore kids either, and I always get sad at the thought of never feeling a little life growing inside of me again.

Kite flying sounds great! I'm ready to take my kids to the pool!!!

Nutella said...

I googled kolaches right away...they sound delicious! And kiwi's are great too!

smartmama said...

Kiwi at our house is pronounced KiKi. And A-boy LOVES it.

Great list! Have fun watching the kite flying!

Lei said...

Lol - well, I don't eat the traditional kolache flavors much. Poppyseed? Ew. I prefer the TX version with sausage and cheese.

But Peach and cottage cheese sounds super yummy!

utmommy said...

What a fun list!! I just found you and your blog is so cute!

Elizabeth said...

I think I'm up for the challenge... what letter would you give me?

ABC Momma said...

Great list. You are teaching me so much.

Gabriela said...

I love those little kicks too (and *I'm whispering here* not fasting). Kiwis are beautifu. And I must google kolaches too!

Lei said...

Okay, Elizabeth... how about "B"?

Andrea said...

Lei said...

Okay, Andrea! I give you the letter "I"!

Andrea said...

The Mother Load said...

I'll play. Could use some "post stimulation"
I, too, decided that 3 kids was enough but I have to agree with Kristen I sure will miss the blessing of giving life and feeling it grow within.

Lei said...

I give you the letter "G"!

I want to play, I have been trying now for a week and no one answers. Is it me?

Tigersue said...

That was me, my computer is being silly

Lei said...

Aw, Tanya...

... how about the letter C?

Stephanie said...

Kinko on kung pao, kimono, and Klimt. You did great on K.

I think we are done having kiddies too. I will miss the kicks in the second trimester, the third trimester gave me the "floating rib". Lovely.

Tigersue said...

You picked that Letter just for me didn't you. ;)

Jane said...

I loved your K list, you did great with it. I remember many prayers asking Heavenly Father to just let me feel those flutters and kicks one more time. So glad he answered that prayer.

Enjoy the little bit of time you have left...
