I've been Tagged

I've been tagged by my talented friend Diane of Diane Knott's Musings to play a "get to know one another". She's asked me to post 7 wonderful, weird, whimsical or serious things about myself.

Well, here goes...


1. I am having the best time blogging and meeting the sweetest, most creative and encouraging friends.

2. I am a very organized person (my kids think this is weird)

3. I am a List maker and couldn't function very well without them (umm.. wonder if that would make a worthwhile post)

4. I would love to learn German (maybe someday when I have the time to commit)

5. Okay, here's one for really weird: when I am very tired and someone asks me a question, I feel a strong urge to giggle and laugh. Guess it's easier to laugh than to think.

6. I watch very little TV or movies

7. I have a fascination with hummingbirds and have filled my yard with plants that attract them.

Instead of tagging 7 others, I will leave it up to you if you would like to participate. If you do, let me know as I would love to see your post.

Interesting list. My husband and I love hummingbirds as well. We have a feeder that attracts them but what kinds of plants have you planted that would help get a few more into our yard?? Thanks!

We sound so much alike by your list. I could tell the first time I visited your blog that we had a lot in common. I like you have so enjoyed meeting new friends and discovering new and interesting recipes, crafts, etc. while blogging. Thanks for the list of flowers. I love working in my yard, then sitting back and watching the butterflies and birds flit about.

I think...when I am tired...I should charge for acting as a stand up comedian! (a clean, happy-funny one) Your #5~ high five! I don't have to be very tired & I giggle...and then I laugh so hard I'm tearing all over! :)
A sign of sweet happiness, I'm sure~
Thank you for saying hello!
