I don't have any completed projects to post today so I thought I would write some facts about me that you may or may not find interesting. I got this idea from Darlene while reading her blog this morning. I know I enjoy reading what you write about yourself so here goes.....
  1. I don't mind buying groceries, but I HATE bringing the groceries from the car and putting them away.
  2. I don't mind putting dirty dishes in my dishwasher, but I dislike taking the clean dishes out and putting them away.
  3. I don't mind washing and folding clothes, but I hate putting the folded clothes where they belong. (seems like I have a problem with putting thing in their proper places!!!)
  4. I really don't like eating a meal out of a paper plate--I know it would prevent me from having to wash (and put away) a plate but I would rather have that "real" plate.
  5. It is rare if I don't make my bed before I leave the house in the morning. I just feel better if my bed has been made up.
  6. I love holidays....especially Christmas and get excited about decorating. Last year I had a tree in every room (they were not all big trees, but I did have one in all the rooms). I plan on doing the same again this year and I can show you pictures.
  7. My favorite food is vegetables from the garden---peas, corn, fried okra, tomatoes, cornbread. I'm definitely a country girl.
  8. I'm not picky about food...will eat just about anything other than buttermilk and raw oysters. I'll eat them fried but not raw....yuck!
  9. I worry too much...I know that it's wrong to worry and I am trying to do better. I want to make everybody happy but I'm learning that I can't do that either. Guess I'm learning alot in my old age!
  10. My family is the most important thing in my life (other than pleasing God). I am truly blessed with a wonderful husband, children, and grandchildren.
  11. I don't consider myself to be "creative" but I will try any project that I have seen. I wish I could come up with these wonderful ideas that you all have, but I'll just settle for copying right now.
  12. I love to laugh and have a good time with friends. Life is too short to dwell on the problems we have (and we will have problems).
  13. I love cats....have two of them.
  14. I am addicted to blogging....I have found friends that I must visit every day. know a little more about me. I'll be watching to learn more about you. I'm going tomorrow to a wonderful arts and crafts show. Can't wait!!!

Oh my word...I could have wrote those exact same things!!!! lol lol (except I won't eat the oysters even if they are cooked) lol That is amazing that we are so much alike on those things...Bill use to tell folks that he was afraid to turn over in bed because
I'd have the bed made before he could turn back over!!! lol Great post girl...I love learning more about you! Have a beautiful day!

I enjoyed reading about you Sue! Some could have been me...I don't like oysters either! My bed has to made too!

Check out the website I was shocked to learn that several individuals die each year from the consumption of raw oysters that are contaminated with naturally occurring Vibrio bacteria. Some gulf states have chosen to not take action in order to make raw oysters safe for ALL consumers.

Several years ago, the state of California made a requirement that all imported raw oysters must be pasteurized and since that requirement was put into place there have been NO FURTHER DEATHS in that state.

In order to affect change, consumers need to only accept oysters that are SAFE through post harvest processing or through being cooked. Consumer demand drives the market and the industry would be forced to provide oysters that did not lead to unnecessary deaths.

The website has a wealth of information available and also explains how you can help in making the consumption of oysters safe for everyone.

I enjoyed learning a little more about you. My problem is that I can't rest until I have finished what I started! So at times, this keeps me from starting things! LOL!

I enjoyed finding out some things about you. I can relate to some of those chores you said you hate to do! I am the same way as you about Christmas. I love it! It's going to be so fun seeing yours and everyone else's decorations!

Daphine said...

Hi Sue,
I came across your blog tonight while visiting another one. I'm glad that I did. I really enjoyed reading this. A lot of your truths sound almost identical to my own list. I stayed a little while to visit. Your blog is very interesting and I plan on returning soon.

I beg to differ with #11~ I think you are very creative Sue. Your house shows it. Your front yard shows it... You are Mrs. CREATIVE and classy to boot!
