I got this fun meme from Gretchen over here. She assigned me the letter P. So here goes.
Rules: If you want to play, leave a comment on this post, and I’ll assign you a letter. You write about ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter, and post it at your place. When people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain continues on and on...
1. My Parents.....if it weren't for them, I wouldn't be here. LOL! Seriously, I love them. They amaze me with all they do in their lives and ministries.
2.Pasta. I love eating pasta. I love cooking pasta. It's easy and fast. I especially like it when it's covered with Alfredo sauce (a.k.a. "heart-attack on a plate!)
3.People. I am a people person. I get really crabby when I stay in my house too long and don't interact with people.
4.Pork products. (Do I get extra points for using two P's, like in Scattergories?) Yes, this is my second food item on this list. I am fond of bacon and ham and pork roast. We had bacon for dinner last night - it was Breakfast-for-Supper night.
5.Purses. My husband doesn't understand my need for several different purses to choose from. My 7 year old daughter inherited my love and always carries one with her.
6, 7, 8. Pens and Pencils and Paper. From the time I was very young I needed to have a writing instrument in my hand at all times or in my PURSE. There is a studio portrait of my sister and me taken when I was about three and you can see in my tiny little hand a few scraps of paper and a pencil. The aisle in any store that contains pens, pencils and paper is my favorite aisle. In my purse I have a little bag that holds pens and index cards. Just feeling it inside my purse makes me happy. And the small spiral notebook with a pen stuck down into the spirals can also be found in my purse, and makes me equally happy!
9.Pets. I love that we have pets because my children get so much joy from them. I try very hard not to get too attached (long story) but I love talking to our pets because they know exactly what I am saying and I occasionally sit on the back step and hold them (they are an outside dog and cat). I think I could easily get attached to an indoor pet but I don't have enough emotional energy for that now. I conserve all that energy for my 4 children.
10. Pictures. I love to look at people's photos - and I don't even have to know the people in the pictures. Strange, I know. I could sit and look at photo albums all day. I love it on Facebook when one of my friends is tagged in a photo, then I sit and look at all of that person's pictures,even if I don't know them. My kids come in and say "who is that? " and I say "I have no idea!". They already know their mother is weird. I just like looking at pictures.
