I hope you all had a good weekend! I ended up taking an unscheduled blogger break for six days! It wasn't intentional, but it is how it ended up! I have been organizing and cleaning my way through the house, especially focusing on closets. It is going all right, but it does take a lot of time to sort things out. We have so much stuff for me to donate to the thrift store this week! Of course, I'll have to pop inside and see what they have for sale! :)
I was visiting Sarah over at Nesting In Pleasant View, and she had been tagged to list ten things she loved that began with the letter "P". I told her I wouldn't mind a letter, but agreed with her that "Q" would be a difficult one, as well as "Z", to be perfectly honest! But she was kind enough to spare me that fate, and assigned me the letter "S". Now I like this particular letter, because it just happens to be the first initial of our last name! This list is in random order, as I thought of them! :)
1.) Sewing~ My mom wanted me to learn when I was growing up, but I didn't want to. She had my sister and I each do a sewing project, only one because I was so cranky about learning. The project? An apron! What was I thinking? I love sewing now, and I LOVE aprons! Do you ever wish you could go back and learn the things you were either too stubborn or in too much of a hurry to learn before? Imagine the way I could sew now if I had listened then. :)
2.) Sleep~ I may not do as much of this since becoming a mother, but boy, do I appreciate it more than I did before! There is nothing like that bliss of a warm and cozy bed, a dark room, and a quiet house! :) Heaven! :)
3.) Singing~ I grew up in a very musical family, and singing was the main "instrument". My older sisters and their families would come over and sometimes we'd all sing together. Naturally when I married my husband, I envisioned our family as a singing one. We'd sing together all the time, on trips in the car, we'd even take it a step further and sing our prayers before meals. I mean, everyone does this, right? Uh, wrong...getting my family to sing with me is like pulling teeth, but they did sing some Christmas songs with me in the car this year! :)
4.) SPRAY PAINT!~ I have discovered the wonders of this amazing decorating tool! I have been a stickler for a brush, and have been a little afraid of getting it wrong with the spray paint, but the stuff is wonderful. :) And for the time conscious decorator, it is awesome! :)
5.) Soap operas~ Well, I like one of them, anyway. General Hospital is my all-time favorite. Although, lately I haven't been watching it as much, because one of my favorite talk-radio programs comes on at the same time. :)
6.) SPRING!~I like all the different seasons, but I LOVE spring! It is my favorite season!
7.)Sunshine~ Oh for more of this! I thank God for every sunny day! I suppose I should thank Him for rain too, but that just doesn't come as easily! :)
8.) Snow~ Okay, another weather related thing I know, but I love snow. My husband and I like it as much as our kids! Although, I will admit, I don't love our school snow routes! :)
9.) Snohomish~ This is a town relatively near us where we would love to live. We would love to live somewhere there "in the country". It remains a dream at this point however, because it is too far a drive for my husband to consider driving to where he works in Seattle...but you never know~ someday it may happen! :)
10.) Soda~ This is my weakness! I have been trying to cut back from two to one sodas a day, but it is very, very hard! :)
Whew! There you have it~ ten things I love! If you would like a letter, just let me know in your comment, and I'll send one your way! (And I promise to be kind and not give any Q's or Z's to you either! :) I will be coming around to visit you ASAP, and catch up on everything! :) Have a good night!
