Random Things About ME

I so enjoy learning more about the bloggers that I interact with.  I love it when they do posts that are about themselves.  Most of these gals I will never have the privilege of meeting but it's amazing the friendships that I have formed through our blogs.  So, I decided that I would do a blog on random things about myself.  Some may be interesting, some may be silly and some may not even make sense,but it's who I am and I hope you will enjoy.

 I love the early morning and am my most productive in the mornings.  I like getting the "must dos" done in the morning and have my afternoons free to go visit my Dad, go to hair or nail salon, visit a friend or just do something fun.

I love to bake more than regular cooking.  I can put together a most delicious meal, but I'd rather bake something.  I have made more Almond Pound Cakes than the law allows!

I want a straw for all drinks outside of coffee.  I often keep a stash of straws in the console of my vehicle for those times that one is not provided.  I even use them in my bottles of water everyday.

I wear rubber or latex gloves for everything I do that involves water, or is gooey and sticky.  My Mother did the same.  I have never washed dishes without rubber gloves.  Now, one would think as a result that I would have nice looking hands.  Well, they are soft and smooth but definitely "old looking." ~ugh~

I have never put a pan or casserole dish in my dishwasher.  I always wash them by hand as I do many other kitchen items.  In my thoughts, a dishwasher is made or glasses, cups, plates, cereal bowls and flatware.

I love birds, not so much the ones outside (although they are beautiful and fascinating to watch), but those used in decorating.  You will find them used in many areas of my home.  I have bird prints, bird figurines, and towels with birds embroidered on them.  I love the different colors of birds, their sassiness and sweetness.  I'm just a "bird kinda gal."

I love a plan and a schedule and it, also, makes me a more productive person.  I have certain days that I do certain tasks and and unless something unforeseen gets in the way, those days never change.

I love to mentor and encourage the younger woman.  I had some older women, outside of my precious Mom, that were mentors and encouragers to me and they played a vital role in my life.  I want to play that vital role and hope that I already have in some younger women's lives.

I love lipstick, well, I love makeup period!  But, when I put my lip liner and lipstick on I feel that I have my "face on."  And, it doesn't matter what I am going to be doing, I put makeup on every day of my life.  It's just a part of my daily routine.

Okay, there you have it, a few random things about me.  There's plenty more but I'll save those for another post.  One can only digest so much at a time. ~laugh~

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. What a great post! I am a morning person too and I am never without a pair of rubber gloves for washing dishes, or for gooey or sticky things. I'm just anti-sticky all around. I remember when I was a Brownie leader and we were holding a large event, a little girl came up to me and said "Are you Mrs. C? My mom says you have wet wipes and paper towels." Yes, that's me, give me those sticky hands and I'll take care of you!

  2. I feel the same way about makeup, Leah! Love it. Have a great weekend!!

  3. This was such a fun post. Even though I already knew most of it, I was still interested in reading the next paragraph. Have a great weekend.

  4. These are my favorite kinds of posts. It's so fun to get to know these random things about bloggers you follow. My favorite is that you've never washed dishes without rubber gloves on. I have to admit, that I've never washed dishes WITH rubber gloves on. Haha! And I prefer to always have a straw as well. Have a great weekend!

  5. What a fun post. I enjoyed learning more about you.

  6. You've got some good disciplines there! A good habit repeated faithfully reaps great rewards!

  7. Loved learning a little more about you. We share some of the same traits, I am also a morning person and like to get my must do's done earlier and I wear makeup everyday, don't feel dressed without it. Happy Monday

  8. Interesting facts about you and lots of these sound like me:) I also drink from a straw except for coffee and my Hubby NEVER uses a straw! I love my mornings and after I sit for a while and finish my coffee... I get going! When I get moving, make-up is on, even if I am not leaving the house! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  9. This was so fun. I love butterflies in my home decor. I go to bed early and rise early. Wake up ready to do things! Too shaky to apply makeup now, but always wore it until a few years ago. I can't do anything in a pair of gloves! lol I started a new blog (photo a day) and would love for you to click on my name in this comment to visit.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
