Seven Things

Caroline quite kindly tagged me yesterday to write seven things about myself...and since seven happens to be my favorite number, I can't resist playing along. So here we go!
  1. Yes. I have a favorite number. Stop gawking at me!
  2. I love figuring out new things. Things like how to make my own custom blog background - what do you think? Interesting (and cool) tidbit::the kit I used in Photoshop Elements to build my pretty background is actually called "Bird Song." No joke. I was browsing through digital kits looking for the perfect one...and there was this one, waiting. With my name on it. Literally.
  3. I'm sitting on my big sister's bed and we're having the greatest time chatting and just being. It's pretty much the best. We need to do this more often! (That's for you, Julie - you're supposed to comment and agree. *grin*)
  4. We have a picture of me as a little girl in which I am holding several cucumbers picked from the small family garden. Both of the cucumbers have a single bite missing from the end. Hey, I was a girl who ate her greens and I had to make sure we had grown those cukes right!
  5. Some conversations at school are hilarious. One of the girls I sit near in Psychology class was talking today about the Logic class she is registered in for next semester. At 8:00 in the morning. "And, really," she said, "Who is logical at eight o'clock in the morning!!!" "Not me," another girl offered. This one is extraverted and fun, easy to get along with. "I'm not logical until after twelve o'clock." I laughed. "And sometimes not even then," I said. She laughed, too. "Exactly!"
  6. I discovered an amazing new (to me) etsy shop recently. Check out all of those gorgeous, nature inspired necklaces! And she has some brass earrings listed that would coordinate so nicely with my newest dress-up necklace. Don't you think?
  7. There's an Andy Griffith on downstairs. And I'm going to watch it! *waves*
And since this is a game of tag...You're it!!! Write seven things about yourself in the comments - anything: serious, funny, completely random. I can't wait to hear.


  1. 7, huh?
    1. Your list is hilarious - I'm laughing out loud. (Is that cheating?)
    2. I'm getting better at making homemade whole wheat pie crusts and looking forward to Thanksgiving.
    3. After researching Herbert Hoover (ahem. for a report due tomorrow:), I've decided he doesn't deserve the bad rap history so often gives him. In fact, he was a really great guy who helped thousands of people globally over the course of his life.
    4. I really like this pattern for a baby hat:
    5. You need to teach me how to do that cool link thingy so that clinking the underlined word takes you to the address without the annoying url. :D Please, that is. :)
    6. The timer is my best friend right now.
    7. Since almost my whole family is in bed, I suppose I'd better head up too. But to make this last one "real," my favorite Christian read of the moment is J. I. Packer's Keeping the 10 Commandments, which I'm working through for a church ethics class. I really like how honest, humble and personal (not at all high and mighty or hard to understand) Packer's writing is. I haven't read the whole thing yet, though, so.... Tag, someone else is it! :D

  2. Glad you liked it! I've already done mine so I guess the tag passes on to the next commenter :).

  3. the computer just ate my comment... =P

    but yes, i totally agree! we should do it more often. =)
