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!

Happy stitching-

  1. We must have been separated at birth. You sound like me....except I don't have curly hair.

  2. Loved reading about you, Carol! My hair has always been straight as a string and I have spent lots of my life with it in curlers, getting perms, etc. Love your attitude on cleaning and cooking - matches mine. However, I don't have pretty Fiestaware like you do. That is cool stuff. Fun post!

  3. It is always fun to read the different things about people. I have always said it won't read on my tombstone "She was a wonderful housekeeper". More important things to do.

  4. This post makes me smile Carol!

  5. Delightful! See, I knew you'd be a good candidate for Versatile Blogger!! wish I had Fiesta, but my odds-n-ends work the same :-) And that picture of Shirley Temple reminded me of when I was little, my Mom used a curling iron (that she heated on the stove) to try and create those curls on my golden locks.

  6. I can't believe you have so many dishes! I love that I'm not the only one! LOL!! See - I'm not nuts, there's someone else out there who has a bunch of plate settings too! Although I do believe you have more than me. But I don't know as I refuse to count my sets. hehehehe!! Yes, I think we should be the bestest of friends.

  7. Very fun to learn these things about you. I don't have any Fiestaware but I sure do love it. I am due for new dishes and have been thinking about what color...I never thought about getting all of them!

  8. "I understand the concepts of cooking and cleaning but just not how it applies to me." Oh this is so funny! I may have to borrow this line.


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
