Thursday Thirteen #11

Thirteen Things I Like About Myself

  1. I have very thick hair that grows very fast. Everybody tells my beautician they wished they had my hair.
  2. I am very tall. That means I can reach the top cabinets with no problems.
  3. I love my green eyes. And, green looks good on me.
  4. I play the piano. I used to be pianist at my church.
  5. I enjoy computing, my website, and blogging.
  6. I made the best choice for a husband I could ever have made! It was 'love at first sight'!
  7. I can sew, crochet, and knit. I used to make custom drapes for a living. I also used to make my clothes, and some for my children. A friend from England taught me to knit in the mid-sixties. I learned to crochet when I was just a young girl. I can also tat, but I haven't done that in years.
  8. I enjoy just sitting around with my husband reading, watching television, or just having quiet time. That doesn't bother either of us.
  9. I love to read. I have loads of books, and I'm always buying more.
  10. I enjoy doing things for my daughter when she doesn't know about it. I love to surprise her, and go clean her house when she's not home. She's a single Mom with four children, and lives over an hour away.
  11. I love going out to eat. Doesn't matter where it is, as long as I don't have to cook! I don't mind cooking - just that I've done it so many years, it's time I got a break.
  12. I can shop all day and buy absolutely nothing. I've been known to pick up a few things, walk around the store, and finally go put them back, saying to myself, "you don't really need that". I come home happy because I've talked myself out of spending money.
  13. I can go all day without turning on the television. Sometimes, I've gone all day and haven't even noticed. I get involved in computing and forget the television!

Sounds like you are a wonderful person!! Thanks for visiting me. I think it's great you love to surprise your daughter. That's my favorite one on the list.

I did this theme this week too. I agree, green eyes are great. I also love to read and I'm tall. I guess I left those out.

Thanks for stopping by my TT. Hope you have a greak weekend!

Candy Minx said...

I like the surprising the daughter trick you play, thats awesome! I also think you are one of the lucky people who has skills too many people grow up without knowing how to sew or knit, and that worries me.

Nice list and you sound like a great person!
my TT list...

Happy TT!

Jersey Girl said...

Chelle Y. said...

I wish I was a little taller. I can never reach the top of the cabinets.

Lisa said...

Will you come be my friend? You sound really nice!! We can read in silence together. And you can teach me to do the cool stuff you do.

Thanks for stopping by Snarkypants. Hope you have a great weekend!

Paxil Princess said...

It was great learning more about you. Happy Thurs and thanks for stopping by my T13.

Janet said...

What a great list, and how nice that you clean your daughter's house! I bet she really appreciates that :-)

anthony said...

#12 - You've successfully bucked the "Buy 2 and Save" advertising trend! Bravo.
Buying nothing is the ultimate savings. We need to find ways to convince ourselves that we don't need all this junk.
I'm still working on it :)

Brony said...

Great job. That was a wonderful list.
Happy TT!

Pixiepincessmom said...

I so want to learn to knit, just haven't taken the time to pick up a how to book. So neat what you said about your hubby. It's nice getting to learn more about people.

Thanks for stopping by my tt & commenting. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. :-)

kristarella said...

Heh, I can go all day n th computer and sometimes miss lunch. It's kind of bad and I go stir crazy if I don't go outside but I don't notice that I've gone nuts until it's pretty much too late to go out in the sun.
