A Little Tag



I've been tagged by the very talented Cathy of Tadpoles and Teacups to list 5 random things about myself. If you would like to play....consider yourself tagged!

1. I used to be obsessive about cleaning my home...until I had kids!
(now I feel a great sense of accomplishment if I can put things away and sweep the floors once in awhile!)
2. I don't have a favorite color. My boys think this is strange. If I had to choose ........it would be white (Click Here if you want to read a "scientific explanation" of the color white). To me, white means I'm free to paint any color I choose!
3. I love the history and provenance of "old" things. And love to make things look "old". My boys think this is strange too!
4. I ran the Houston marathon when I was 18. I'm not an "athlete" by any means....rather uncoordinated if the truth be told. But my Dad was a runner and inspired me to train and try it.
5. Cooking is not something I enjoy. I wish I did, but I just don't have the patience....it seems I have a million things I'm doing at once when I'm cooking and I can't concentrate! So, my husband cooks most of the meals, so I can concentrate on those other million things!


Hope you have a great weekend....stay warm! I'll be finishing the painting Mary and Baby Jesus, as per request by my husband for our church's Christmas Eve program and hopefully have something to share on Monday.

Hello Suzanne!!

Those are fun, random things. Lots of accomplishment, too! I used to love to cook but kept a pretty messy house ... until I had kids. LOL. Now I have a clean house and cooking is no longer my forte ... I think cooking for an army (and a picky one at that, LOL) every single day sorta takes the fun out of it. ;)

Wanted to come and wish you a VERY Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Year's, too.

xoxo,
Dana

Hey Suzanne, I don't enjoy cooking either! Unfortunately my husband doesn't cook so I have to do it anyway. I wish I liked it. The chefs on the Foodnetwork always make it looks so easy and fun!

Those are great random things. Other than running the marathon at 18, those could be mine, too!

I love your random things list! You and I have a lot in common (except for the marathon for me, too ;) I can't wait to see your new painting...

Hi! Great list. I don't really like to cook either, but I do it. . .occassionally.
Have fun with your "million other things" list. I'm working on mine too.
