I forget things......
Yes, I do, and one of the things I've forgotten to do is to thank Brita of Scraps of Happiness for giving me a Versatile Blogger award. I am honored - thank you, Brita. Now you were suppose to list 7 facts about yourself and pass the award on to 15 other bloggers. And because I forgot to do this all the bloggers I thought about naming have already been named. Obviously the rest of you have impeccable taste in blogs. I'll have to skip that part unless you want a list of blogs about subjects like raising pygmy goats or collecting rubber bands. Yeah I didn't think so.
As for 7 facts about myself - wow that was harder than I thought it would be so I only did 4. I also don't follow direction well, but then I think you've figured that out already.
1. I forget things - oh wait I already said that, but I forgot. Actually, I forget where I leave my cell phone about 10 times a day. I often call it from my land line which works unless I've left the battery run down and then I get my sons to look for me. I'm forgetful, not stupid.
2. I have naturally curly hair. Very curly. Think an aging Shirley Temple who put her finger in a light socket. I gave up trying to tame it years ago. As a teen I did the gargantuan juice can rollers and it still had curl. Now the color I owe to my lovely stylist and she will never tell what concoction she mixes up for me.
3. I understand the concepts of cooking and cleaning but just not how it applies to me. Now I love to eat and I like a clean house but I avoid these activities as much as possible. There are lots of lovely places close to my home that serve great meals -and yes some pass me dinner through a window, but that's okay with me. As for cleaning, I haven't been visited by the local health department so its all good. No one on their death bed said I wished I'd spent more time at the office or cleaned more toilets. I'm going to spend my time doing crafty stuff!
4. Now even though I don't like cooking I adore dishes - china, serving pieces, cakes stands! I have a wonderful collection of Fiestaware. At last count I have 14 different colored place settings and I mix them up all the time. Hey, carry out food taste better when it is sitting on a Paprika colored plate and the salad is in a Lemongrass colored bowl and I'm drinking out of a Tangerine mug.
I love reading all the different blogs and seeing the wonderful projects you are working on. The internet offers so much inspiration. I just wish there were more hours in a day. Now I'm off to to indulge in crafty endeavors!
