7 facts and a lovely compliment

Thank you, Sharon, for the gift of your nomination.  I am truly grateful.


7 Facts About Me:

I act like a child when it comes to drinking water and milk.  I know they’re good for me, I know I need to drink more, but I can’t seem to get that ball rolling.  The closest I’ve come is using Propel packets to flavor my water.  Apparently grape flavored liquid appeals to my inner child.

There are several hard and fast signs that I’m officially on the other side of middle aged: the battle against gray is real, pants can be too low cut with uncomfortably cold drafts, shoes can be comfortable or stylish but rarely both, and glasses are no longer optional.

I don’t do fingernails.  I keep mine filed short, otherwise they snag on anything and everything, and without a speck of color.  Drawing attention to these pitiful cuticles and rough fingers is just sad.

I love candles, afghans, the perfect wall hanging, and throw pillows.  I don’t always remember to light candles, but I love their soft illumination and scent when I do.  There’s always an afghan within reach, even in the summer.  The right wall hanging makes a room’s energy – relaxing or refreshing – and throw pillows complete it.  All of these things together? They make a room a home.

I don’t believe in white dress shoes.  Hey, you do you, but I just can’t.

I have a Bachelor’s in English and had to read an ungodly amount of Shakespeare to earn it.  It’s possible they’ll come revoke my degree for saying this, but I never did love the Bard all that much.  Anything you have to work that hard to understand diminishes my enjoyment of reading.

I love watching birds in flight.  Especially when they’re soaring, circling on the wind, the tips of their wings stark against the sky when they dip low.  I’ve even been known to pull over to the side of the road when something striking catches my eye.

    • I know, it’s almost too embarrassing to admit! Maybe if I read it now I’d enjoy it more…getting graded on my understanding of the underlying themes and character development tends to make any subject matter more challenge than fun.


      • I see your point. I had a great Professor, and he encouraged us to read and watch the play, which helped a lot! Trust me in high school I would have never guessed I would grow to adore the man’s writing. It can be confusing, and trust me, I don’t awlays understand everything he says! Plus, we have Shakespeare in the park…and who doesn’t like hanging out under the stars with a glass of wine…cheers!

  1. Ha! I loved this. I loved Shakespeare, it was the Russians I couldn’t bear 😉 Shhh!
    So, about the white dress shoes, I’m with you. BUT! I gotta say, there was a lady I worked with who wore only white, nude, and black shoes every day. In the summer, she wore white shoes almost exclusively — heels. She made it work. I don’t know, don’t ask me, but I think it had to due with her long brown legs. She was foxy enough to make white heels look good. *shrugs*
    I like milk, but I like my water with stuff in it — a splash of somethin — apple cider vinegar, lemon, lime, cran juice, somethin. Plain ol water is just sooo plain!

  2. Not saying a word about the Russians…everyone’s got their jam, right?
    And that’s a good point about the shoes. I’ve known a few people that can rock absolutely anything. Seriously, if you put them in a burlap sack and stood them on their porch people would line up to ask where they’d bought it. Needless to say, I’m not one of those people…
