8 HABITS OR FACTS ABOUT YOU
Altho I have done this one before, it is fun so I accept the challenge, ADRIENNE.....We have a LOT of things in common, you and I.......
I, too have always wanted a library in my home....this is as close as I can get to it but I truly LOVE my books and book shelf. If you click the picture, you can see a lot of my really loved books......most of which are THRIFTED....Yipeeeeeee!!
I dearly LOVE signs....anything graphic. I have waaay too many because, like everything else, I can NEVER get enough of the things I like so much. I never know when to STOP....(oh, I just noticed in this picture, the HORSESHOE above the door in the adjoining room....that is my VERY GOOD LUCK piece!!!!)
By the way, these vintage, excellent little signs came off of a British boat.....I got them off Ebay and am soooo thrilled with them.
I LOVE to BAKE !! COOKING is ok but I'm sure not in love with it. My granddaughter asked me the other day "if I LOVED baking so much.....why didn't I marry it?"
Back when I was young.....OMGosh..what a long time ago............ANYWAY.....when I was young, I LOVED KETCHUP SANDWICHES....Like ADRIENNE and her mustard sandwiches, I fixed myself ketchup sandwiches all the time. And, also like ADRIENNE, I still love ketchup......but not just ketchup sandwiches......IT'S A KID THANG.
I LOVE babies........so much!!
I thought I would NEVER get pregnant....it took way too long! I was 26 and had been married several years before I finally had our little baby boy.....DARLING DAVID. Then, it took me another 5 years to have our sweet little baby girl, BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER, STACY.
Due to a health problem, I needed a surgery that ended our dreams of more babies but, please let me tell you how blessed we felt and still feel to have been given such treasures from GOD as our two children.....and then, as if THAT wasn't enough blessings, HE sent us 10 little grandchildren.....OH, MY....THANKFUL I AM !!
When I finished high school, I moved to DALLAS, TEXAS to become the next SUPER MODEL !
I enrolled in and completed a Runway Modeling course and loved every minute of it. The only problem was that I was 18, had never been away from home, missed MY MOMMA so much that, try as I did, I just COULDN'T live that far away from my family.
Models weren't needed in my small hometown so I came home and went to work for a local bank. The modeling course sure didn't hurt me..... I think the best part was learning a little more self-confidence...
I can't even begin to express how thankful I am that I CAME home....all those years I had with my mom wouldn't have "BEEN", if I had stayed so far away! See, HEAVENLY FATHER always...ALWAYS, knows best!!
I, too, am a lady that can not "DO NOTHING", for very long, anyway. I need something to do most of the time. I love having projects going, working in the yard and garden, re-doing something fun in my house, thrifting with daughter and friends, handwork, creating.......just SOMETHING.
I NEVER wanted to learn to fly but I took flying lessons once......just so that I could learn to take off and land a small airplane. My Sweet Hubby had a small plane for business once....a long time ago. I was so afraid in it that I kept thinking, "What if......."...."What if he has a heart attack up here....what would we do?" Hence.......flying lessons. Well, I learned to take off and land it by myself...no help from my instructor....so one day, he said, "SOLO time". OMGOSH.....
scared me so bad, I jumped out of that plane and never looked back!
OOOOO, the plane was landed BEFORE I jumped out!
