Quirky things...

I know I've been a bit absent from the blog these days. Jameson is back in school and I haven't stayed home one of those mornings. Getting lots of errands done and helping out at church so as much as I think I get time to get things done (like blogging), it just hasn't happened. And this week my dad & deb are here visiting so I've been spending time with them! Here are a few pictures that we've taken lately. Dad did a bit of fixing up around the house (gotten love a great talented guy like him!) He repaired the rotten boards on the front steps, hung quite a few pictures around the house that just hadn't been done yet and tomorrow we're going to work on setting up a rope swing for Jameson (really I think we might all enjoy this toy!). Debbie and I made some yummy applesauce (I never knew how simple it really was to make). It is so delicious.

So today I was reading up on my google reader and found that yesterday, Heather had tagged me. Here are the rules, link back to the person who tagged you. List the rules on your blog. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of your own and tag 6 "unsuspecting" bloggers to complete. Pretty simple,eh? Until you get to the 6 unspectacular quirks of your own. That's tough (well not too hard for me since I'm a quirky kinda girl! I actually just asked D&D what was quirky about me because I couldn't think of 6 things - their response was if I couldn't think of something quirky about myself that in itself makes me quirky! haha - funny!).

Here goes...

1. That I over analyze certain things, like how long we'll spend to do something and what we're going to do next, etc (this is especially evident during trips).

2. Okay something that many people yell at me about, I walk in flip-flops. My reef flops truly are more comfortable to me than sneakers. (I actually just got back from a walk with Debbie & Carrie - love a little girl time!)

3. I can't go to bed at night with almost anything in the kitchen sink. It causes me to be a bit grumpy in the morning when there is a task to be done like dishes.

4. Speaking of mornings, it is hard for me to get right out of the bed when the alarm goes off. Hitting snooze at least once helps me get up in a better mood.

5. I really enjoy drinking hot water with lemon, no tea, honey, or anything extra just water & lemon.

6. Not that this is really that unusual (at least I don't think so), I sleep with my feet outside of the covers, but only for the first few minutes of the night then I snuggle in all under the covers.

(Okay so I just thought of one more, I don't like to have my food touch. Like right now I'm about to enjoy a yummy homemade apple pie with ice cream - one bowl & one plate for me!)

Now to tag some others... Abby, Caroline, Crystal, Sarah Ha, Sarah Hi, & Shari. Can't wait to read about my quirky friends!

I love your "quirky" list. Actually, I did not think that 1-5 were all that quirky (may have to try the water and lemon thing, as it sounds good). However, I got a good laugh out of #6. I'd give that one quirky. Miss you and will talk with you soon-sd

Sarah Hayes said...

You are funny, uh... I mean quirky, friend! I love you for that. ;o) Thanks for sharing your list! It sounds like you have had a wonderful visit. I am glad about that. I am also glad that you have been enjoying your "you" time!

Crystal said...

Thanks for the tag, Jill. I'll have to think about it for a bit and see what I can come up with.

Glad your little guy is enjoying his school adventures. And I know - volunteer opportunities abound and there's never enough time to go around. But all is good because we are blessed with opportunities and surrounded by people. Have a happy weekend!

Am I quirky? You'll have to help me decide what is quirky about me...the thing about quirks is that you don't really think that they are quirky...just normal for the quirked ( I know that's not a word) person! Forgot to tell ya--Jameson was so good the other day. He was a joy to keep.
