A Quirky Challenge for me...

My blogging friend Karen, at HomeSpun Simplicity has challenged me to name 6 quirky things about myself. Thats almost too easy...grin.

1.I always sit on the edge of my comfy blogging 'office' chair. Even though it was carefully selected to give good back support. Go figure!

2. I invariably check the restaurant silverware to make sure it looks clean!

3. I always end up reading my books at the kitchen table. We have a cozy wall lamp right over the table and padded swivel chairs out there. Plus its handy for snacking. Whoops...did I really admit that?

4. I have an insatiable desire for more mechanical pencils. Just love'em and don't quite know why. Yes I do. They never need sharpened and the lead doesn't break off ...well hardly ever.

5. I hate to have a ticking clock in the same room with me when I am trying to go to sleep. I've been known to get out of bed and stuff them/it down under things in a dresser drawer.

6. When something touches my eyes fill with tears. Quickly. I hide I can.

If you'd like to join in the fun...just leave me a comment and I'll come read about what your quirks are...we all have some thats for sure. I like most of mine, how about you? =)

I have the same quirk about the ticking clock. On deputation this a problem. Many times, I would hide a clock somewhere and then I had to remember to put it back when we were leaving!!!

Yes, the ticking clock! Can't stand it.

A few more - I'm always looking at things and thinking: 1. Could I make that? 2. Would it be fun to make? 3. How would I do it?

And even though I stay very busy, there is never an hour in my day that I do not think of my little grandsons.

I could go on and on. My "quirk" list is longer than my "normal" list!

How fun to read! My daughter Lori loves mechanical pencils too. That's all she's used since elementary school. I hate ticking clocks too! I agree, in the draw they go! Stop over at a Mother's minute you have an award waiting for you.

I can't have a ticking noise in the same room either. I remember visiting my mother in law and putting the clock in the bottom of her hamper until we left! LOL Drove me batty. (Smiles)
