5 things

shannon has tagged me in the "5 things" meme that's going along, where you list five things about yourself that you haven't already mentioned on your blog, and i'm happy to ramble off a few things about moi. here goes:

1. i enjoy my own company, almost a little too much. i just really like to be alone. i think it's about being able to do whatever i want.

2. i like to be able to do whatever i want. all the time. my husband is exceptionally understanding of this but still no pushover.

3. i love grocery shopping. really love it. maybe it's some hunter gatherer woman-folk skills from another life coming through but i feel the need to show shane each exciting purchase that is out of the norm from our grocery usuals and proclaim over every bargain i scored. then think up new and exciting ways to use the weird stuff i bought on sale.

4. i had a big, beautiful grey cat named jackson when i lived in canada. he now gains pounds daily and is spoiled to death at his new residence with my mom.

5. i have seriously contemplated going back to school to study ceramics, naturopathy, wood working, silversmithing and landscape design at various times in the last 10 years.

hmm, who to tag? telfair, nichola, casey, tricia, and flossy-p - you're it.


  1. I'm totally with you on the first two, and on number 5 as well! I *need* my own company, or I turn into evil Shell, and get all crotchety and crazy.

    Boy this meme is travelling fast!

  2. Hehe. Thanks for tagging me--shall have to do this later today! :D

    I love #2 btw--I'm the same way. lol.

  3. Oooooh, what fun! I'm going to do later too.
    I'm completely with you on all 5 points. I love grocery shopping, I love to be alone and love to do what I want when I want, would love to go back school for ESL and silversmithing, and lastly I have a big fat fluffy grey cat who can't stop eating whom I love to death.

  4. I'm with you on #5, but not at all on #3 - eeeek.

    Thanks for tagging me. I'll start thinking. :)

    I enjoy my own company also! I love sitting in peace and quiet just mozying about...

    PS. the quilt sections is chenille from 2nd hand bedspreads Ive picked up to use for 'something'. And its annoyingly messy to cut up! (But comes up a treat I reckon)

    1. I totally feel the same way. I don't like having to be obligated to someone else's time and company in order to do something.

    2. Thank goodness my husband has the same personality as me in this area. We're never in conflict and I feel like we're still dating despite our many years together.

    3. My OBSESSION with grocery shopping is notorious! When we're on vacation, I force the boy to check out all local food markets with me...

    Thanks for sharing!
