7 Things

While I was out of town Rissa tagged me for a meme. I keep thinking I’m going to write one of those 100 things about me, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. Well this will help add 7 more to my list.

Here are the rules which you must abide by if you are tagged.
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.
********************************************************************

  1. I try not to be a production knitter, but I like to stick to a schedule. I actually get things done when I make a list and check things off.
  2. I would consider myself to be a Purple Woman. I think to go down that path you should really have a calling. There are a lot of things I have a calling for, but not that one.
  3. One of my dream trips is to Africa on safari. This is a must do in my life and I have to stay at Giraffe Manor for at least one night. I think this will probably happen when I’m in my 40’s.
  4. I learned to play the piano at 5 and took lessons for years and years – till 18, but I never enjoyed it. However, I hurt my arm at 7 and needed to keep playing for the therapy. It was a simple fracture that went awry at the hospital and led me to using complete use of the arm and hand at one point. I have recovered, but not to full use. I normally always opt for long sleeves to hide the scars from the subsequent surgery. I did however wear a sleeveless for my wedding.
  5. I would only play classical music on the piano. I always thought that sounded best. However, my favorite music is from the 40’s. I love Dorothy Shay and Bing Crosby.
  6. I always wear slippers at home. I need lots of pairs and nearly always have to throw them away after a couple of months. I’ve had shoes for years, but slippers I go through.
  7. I have a very, very mild case of Trich. I wanted to learn to knit to keep my hands busy at night, which is the time I am most likely to suffer. It is very mild and knitting has helped immensely. I never used to talk about it before, but I’ve since learned everyone has little quirks in life and have laughed many times over the husband’s OCD, so I see it as less of a stigma today and something just to work through. This change in attitude has also helped.

Ok – so I won’t tag anyone… but if you want to participate feel free and leave me a comment, so I can check your 7 out.

I’m a professional quilter and maker of pretty things.

  • I always wanted to do a 100 things list and an alphabet list as well but just never seem to have the energy even to get started. I love reading them, you always learn the neatest things about folks that way.

  • Be careful with the purple thing. I used to be purple to but two moves in 7 months led to no pills and boom no more purple. He He. Clair gave Amanda a pair of scuff slippers. their offwhite with little embrodered floweres. Last Friday Jeff took the garbage out using said sleepers, it was funny. My quirk is add. I’m the origanal space cadet. Of course I wasn’t diagnosed until I was 40 with two babies. Shit load of good it did my then. I would have had a much easier time in school if the diagnoses was made say at 7. I thought I was going through early Altheimers the spelling is way off and I’m too tired to look it up. Until next time…

  • OMG…I am a Purple Woman too AND I have an issue with picking my feet periodically. It always starts innocently, with a broken blister or deep crack that splits…then I denude the whole bottom of my foot. It has happened off and on since I was a teenager…in part because my skin is so thick on the soles of my feet from years of walking barefoot on hot tar.

  • I love what I learn about people from these lists as well, though I have really stopped doing most memes. I’m beginning to think I may be a purple woman. I always thought I’d have kids but never really relished the idea. Now I’ve been married for almost ten years and not a kid in sight and I realize I’ve begun to look positively on not having them. We’ll see. I have a girlfriend who was married 18 years when they unexpectedly got pregnant. You never know.
