I have been TAGGED!

Someone else did this to me about a week ago….and with my age….the grandsons…shoot, I am running out of reasons…anyway, I just plain forgot.

But my good friend, TechnoNana tagged me today to tell ya’ll some weird and unknowns stuff about me. I told her that when I did….well, all the sweet readers would just find someone else to read!

Here goes….

How many? Was it 7?

1) ~~~I have a skunk streak of gray hair that I try my hardest to keep colored.

2) ~~~I never wear makeup on Saturdays. Not even to go to Wal-Mart.

3) ~~~I would rather wear either cowboy boots (the low heeled kind) or flip flops. High heels are pretty…and who doesn’t like to look sexy…but I’d rather be comfortable…and if I need to look intimidating to the grandsons…I think cowboy boots work well.

4)~~~Opposite of TechnoNana–I sort of enjoy ironing—especially if I am listening to good music! I started out young. I think I was almost 5 and mother trained me on handkerchiefs and pillowcases. Speaking of which, I iron my pillowcases when I have time so that they feel good and crisp. Starch. Love the feel of starch on my pillowcases and sheets too! Weird is what you asked for.

5)~~~I don’t like cleaning the bathroom…but it is my job and I hate a dirty tub…so…yes, dear sweet Lori…I scrub the tub—often. Actually, it needs it RIGHT NOW!

6)~~~I love sitting in the swing outside at night with Jeff. That’s good talk time. Early morning is nice too…but except for Saturdays and Sundays, we just don’t cross paths that early. That’s his devotion place and time and I don’t want to interrupt.

7)~~~I love hot tea. I love almost done cookies. I love cooking but can only do it justice—on the weekends. By the time I get home from work (hour drive both ways)—I am ready for my bath and my bed! Speaking of which, I am about to head that way. I LOVE to go to bed early and read…but it’s not early now…and we just came from Lowe’s and my sweet darlin’ of a man bought me some fire cracklin’ sound logs for our fire pit…so we can enjoy the swing outside! Now, that is a romantic gesture!

My wish list:

1)~~~I wish I could travel to each town of my sweet friends in blogworld and visit each and every one and share a cup of something good!

2)~~~I wish it would snow. Enough that we could have a snow day and I didn’t have to go to work.

3)~~~I wish I could stay home and sew, cook, craft, visit, blog, write, read, hmmmm I just ran out of stuff there.

4)~~~I wish we had a week of paid vacation for every 6 weeks of work. That way, I think we could better prevent burn-out at work! (I think my co-workers would agree…except the guys)

5)~~~I wish I had more time to spend with my little boys. One on one. Not all at the same time. That wears a poor soul OUT! Completely!!

6)~~~I wish I could meet Beth Moore. I really admire her teachings and the digging into the Word that she does. I would like to ask her lots of questions.

7)~~~I wish I had you sitting right here with me. We could talk all night! Well, not all night. I have to work tomorrow.

Okay…that’s all I could think of tonight….Was that good enough???

Tagged

I don’t normally do this….but since I refrained all year last year from participating, I decided this year I would do this ONE and ONLY meme. For Susan at Forever His—because she is so sweet to me and always encourages me. So blame her if you came here looking for something else today and was disappointed with me.

I didn’t realize that meme’s had rules…but they do.

The rules for this meme are:

(1) Link to the person that tagged you. (check)

(2) Post the rules on your blog. (check)

(3) Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself. (check)

(4) Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs. (check) (yes I realize I went over….but it’s Saturday…and it’s raining….and I have been wanting to have a cup of coffee with each of these girls!

(5) Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website. (check)

Okay….my six non-important things/habit/quirks….hmmmm let me see…there are so many non-importants here….and I am very quirky….got lot’s of habits too….which to list….

1) I hate touching elevator buttons and buggies at stores—and so I keep anit-bactierial “wet ones” in my truck and in my purse. Okay, so I drive an SUV, but I call it a truck. I am a truck kind of girl.

2) I have a big box of pictures/scrapbook stuff under the bed in the boys room that I promise my self I will do….and still haven’t. I have completed one (1) scrapbook. It was for the first grandson. I have 3 more to do. It’s just something I save until I have nothing else to do. There is ALWAYS something else to do.

3) I don’t like clutter, but I love stuff. (That really doesn’t make sense.) I love books. I have shelves and shelves in my miniscule library stuffed with books. (My honey told me just this morning that my recent purchases from “Lifeway Christian Supply” really could have waited. He’s right. I just didn’t think so at the time.)

4) I live in the panhandle of Florida. But ALWAYS wanted to spend a winter season where it snowed. ALOT. But my idea of the perfect winter is, plenty of food stocked….firewood for the fireplace that is gigantic (my idea remember?) lots of books and Bibles stacked up on shelves, all my favorite CD’s to listen to and some really good “old” movies, lots of hot chocolate, coffee, sweets when necessary, cozy quilts to cuddle by the gigantic fireplace, a few outdoor activties to feel the brisk cold and to remind me that I am alive—all tucked in a big cabin on a lake in the mountains….–plus—a Barnes and Noble, TJ Maxx, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Publix and Lowes’ nestled at the bottom of the mountain for the days when I have cabin fever. Not that I would know what cabin fever felt like…but at least it’d be there if I had symptoms.

5) I sing loud when I’m alone. I used to sing in our home church choir. Things are not the same in these passing years I have no desire nor inclination to sing in front of anyone. I sing to the Lord alone, LOUD, in my truck on the way to work. Many times I sing when Jeff’s with me. Not quite as loud. Not sure if he would appreciate it as much as Jesus does.

6) I have a bit of temper at times. Shocked you didn’t I? Well, we’ve all got something. Sometimes I speak before I think. I try hard not to. But sometimes it just comes flyin’ out. Sometimes it’s a blisterin’ (as my mother used to refer to a spanking—“Angie, I am going to blister you rear end!”) She did. I always apologize when I feel the Lord speak to me. Once—I tell you the truth…I blistered an ex-boyfriend of Tiffany’s. He was an ex and wouldn’t accept it. She was of driving age and had our car…and came flying in the drive way…with him right behind her….She ran in the house —covered in fear—well you know what this hundred and ahem pound mama did….you got that right. If I would have had a shot gun…his britches would be full of lead—-lucky for him I didn’t. Lucky for me too. I was full of mama-rage. Mama-rage and protecting her children is a dangerous thing. Anyway, I did the next best thing. I tore him up verbally. The apology came a few years later when the Lord crossed our paths in an odd situation. I knew it was God. The minute I saw him the Lord spoke clear to my heart….

“Apologize Angie”.

“Do You really think it’s necessary Lord? He may not even remember.”

“But you do. Now, apologize.”

“Yes Lord.” And I did. I truly was sorry.

So there you have it! 6 weird things about me. Not important things. See, the sin has been covered by the blood of the Lamb! And the mountain winter…..it could happen….if I had a kzillion dollars….and could stand being away from my grandchildren that long….which I couldn’t…so I take that back….it probably won’t happen.

Now for my six victims! Yes—-girls….go back and look at Susan’s…she added cute pictures…I didn’t have time to. Hers was really neat.

My picks are:

Lynn and Dineen at Spiritually Unequal Marriage

Iris at Sting my Heart and Chris at Chris Kerr Jewelry
Tami at The Next Step and Vicki at Windows to my Soul

Sarah at In Light of the Truth and Lisa at The Preachers Wife

Sorry for going overboard….but I couldn’t help myself!
