I have been 'tagged' !!! 'Artful Ramblings' has tagged me for...'Seven Random Things About Me'. You are supposed to tag 7 other people but please just consider yourself tagged too if you have time & let me know when you post. These really are fun. Here goes;
  1. 1. Small things bring me joy!
  2. 2. I am positive I am on my way to heaven through accepting Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour!
  3. 3. I love exchanging smiles...
  4. 4. I am typing this with the adhesive from a bandaid sticking to my finger.
  5. My hair waves in different directions!
  6. I stayed up till 2am last night because I felt like it...grin. I cleaned the kitchen and blogged.
  7. I wear my wedding diamond on my left hand and the ruby from my hubby on my right hand.~~~~

And for Senkyoshi, who tagged me long ago...here is "Favorite Things From A to Z".

A- Authors; Linda Nichols, Jamie Langston Turner & scads more!

B- Books; The Bible, Joni E. Tada devotionals & lots more!

C-Coffee; Hazelnut decaf perked in my old-fashioned pot where the coffee bubbles up in the little glass top.

D- Dessert; At the moment....Cream Puff Cake!!

E-Elegant object you own. Hmmm. A large ornate gold frame I fell in love with and put a mirror in it....thank you Martha Stewart for that idea...grin.

F- Flowers; yellow or pink roses with babys breath.

G-Guests for Tea; that would be my good friends over for a teaparty.

H- Home; the place where I RELAX just to walk in the door.

I- Inspirational Authors; Lynn Austin, Amy Carmichael & many more.

J- Jane Austin book, You know, I don't think I've read any...would you allow me to substitute "The Yearling" by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings instead? I adore this book from the first time I read this classic.

K- Kitchen Gadget; without a doubt it my $10 electric onion chopper!

L- Laundry helps; I use "Magic Sizing" to iron with...its a light starch product you spray on hubby's shirts.

M- Music; My cello and classical music...and hymns of praise!

N- Naptime; Oh yes, I am 59 years old and will stretch out of the couch at least once a day for a 30 minute rest if I'm wise. Pull the blinds and add one sock filled with rice 1/3 of the way ( and a knot tied in the top)..heated in the microwave for 1 minute and you have an instant handwarmer & relaxation.

O-Organizing Tips; A place for everything and everything in its place....good luck..grin.

P-Pride & Prejudice Character; Referring back to the 'Yearling' instead, it will be 'Jody'.

Q- Quote; John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." ~~~~~ And..this is tacked on my bulletin board..."Promise me you'll always remember, You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." Christopher Robin from 'Winnie the Poo' Love is a wonderful thing we enjoy every day!

R-Recipe; my really good crockpot recipes...love'm all!

S-Scent; I would have to say lavender. I don't wear perfume of any kind though. Allergies and all that. I enjoy powders though.

T-tea; Justin Lloyd Cinnamon Tea is my favorite tea. I have to order it online but its worth it!

U-Underwater creature; Sea horses and jellyfish fascinate me. They are both so delicate and beautiful.

V-Voyage you've taken; Well, going to Niagra Falls was my favorite vacation. The falls on the Canadian side are absolutely breathtaking!

W-Water Feature; Well, the above will have to be a double feature for this....

Xtra-Special Treat; Reading a good book or getting time to Collage, which I love.

Y-Something about You; well lets see....my cello study is coming along nicely. Its a lot of hours of practice but so rewarding. And, the older I get the more I look forward to heaven as well as have more fun here on earth! Kind of pulling in two opposite directions...smile.

Z-Zoo Animal; my favorite would be...hmmmm....The aquarium 1st and the apes second. Love those big brown eyes of theirs and how they come right up to the window to show off their babies.

Hey, this has been fun! Consider yourself tagged if you dare, and let me know when you post your list of 'Favorite Things from A to Z' so I can come over and read it!

Hi Maggie Ann- I enjoyed and loved everything about this post! I would love to take the time to do this. I'm in the midst of starting a new program for my little Sunday School class (3 to 5 year olds), trying to open an Etsy shop (which means finishing projects, and helping my husband sort through the antiques as much as possible. Life is very blessed but busy!
Haven't had time to visit like I'd like too, but want you to know I'm thinking of you!
I love your pictures! Love Ya- Claudia.
