An Award & Randomness

A fellow blogger friend recently awarded me with this and I'm so honored - thanks so much, Holley!

As part of receiving this award you are to share 8 things about yourself and then pass it along to 8 other bloggers!

8 Random Things About Me:

1. I love to read. I have to read before falling asleep at night - it helps me turn my brain off, lol!  Christian Fiction is my choice...preferably with some romance involved.  What can I say, I'm a sucker for romance. :)

2. I'm a sucker for chocolate, too. In a pinch, chocolate chips will do. ;-)

3. Back in my school days (Jr. High thru High?)...if I felt my notes were too messy, I rewrote them. Yup, I did. And I wasn't the only one, hee hee - my best friend was the same way! We were even jealous of each other's handwriting, lol! ;-)

4. I enjoy filling out forms...especially if they're the carbonless multiple copies of the same thing type of form - something about that soft paper and a good pen, lol!

5. I *dislike* weeding. It usually takes prompting from my grandma, who comes over to help. ;-)  On the other hand, clipping my roses is a relaxing thing for me. :)

6. I *love* baking. Oh, that I could have the time and resources (and willpower against the results) to bake all the time!

7. I *love* organizing - I'll help you organize your kitchen cupboards!  (((contented sigh)))  I love the feeling at the end. I love the thoughts of before/after. I used to DRAG mom/dad/hubby/whomever to the project, and show them afterwards! lol  Ironically, though I'm organized, it's really easy for me to accumulate clutter...and when someone (ahem) asks for help with their mess, I get overwhelmed with all the projects awaiting me at my own home, that I tend to put it off (sorry mom, will help you soon!), thinking I should probably tackle my own first, lol! :)

8. I once thought I could manage riding a bike down concrete stairs. Ha ha ha ha ha!  I still chuckle over that one.  Luckily, as a pre-teen/teen (??don't remember exactly), I didn't get hurt too badly, but a little embarrassed towards the man in the speedo I narrowly missed! lol!!!  I wonder if the friend with me at the time still remembers this...

Well, I think that's all for now...and now you know some random things about me!  lol.  Sorry it took me so long, Holley!  I had the hardest time with the 8 Random Things!
