"Nuttin but knittin" - that says it all, with an occasional deviation into the real world.

I knew it would happen, sooner or later.....

I've seen these MeMe's on other's blogs, and wouldn't you know.... I've been tagged by Jennifer! There will be pay-backs Jennifer! :)

(I have to post this first:)
Here's how to play...
1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged write a blog post about their own 8 random things and post these rules.
3. At the end of your blog you need to tag 8 people and post their names.

Ok ... Let's see...... Hmmmm.....

1. I am totally a morning person, rarely sleeping past 4:30. I think sleep is pretty much a waste of time, and wish I could do without.

2. I think the world would be a better place if all people were naturally bald. Think of the money that would be saved on hair styling and products. Plus, we could all wear lovely hand knit hats without fear of the dreaded "Hat Head".

3. I absolutely love visiting places that I have heard about all my life - such as Mount Rushmore, Statue of Liberty, Big Ben, Great Wall of China... (I have been to 2 of those places....want to guess??)

4. I am pretty much a creature of habit. I like routine, order, and I really don't handle surprises very well. (So - if you come to my house, call first)

5. While on vacations (especially in foreign countries) I like visiting cemeteries - the older the better.

6. I often study people's hands. I think they are one of the most interesting features of a person.

7. One of my fondest childhood memories is walking along next to my grandpa while he was pushing an old fashioned rotary lawn mower. Sometimes visiting, but more often than not - just "being" with grandpa. (And studying his hands)

8. Although I have few regrets in my life, I wish I would have learned my father's trade from him. He was a house builder - general contractor. I wish I would have followed in his footsteps. I am sure he would have welcomed me, but at the time, it was not a "woman's line of work". I actually didn't even think about it till much later in life. He was the ultimate Craftsman!

Now I am supposed to tag 8 people (I am not sure 8 people even read my blog!!), so , Shirley, Jakki, Bobbi, Shelly, Pat, Rebecca, Marguerite, (sorry to anyone who is upset with me) consider yourself tagged if you haven't already been. That's only 7, but Jennifer - you only did 6!

Now - back to my knitting. I started a sweater....more about that later. If anyone is still reading my blog that is........ :(


bobbi said...

Now you know that I read your blog,of all times to befriend you

Jennifer said...

Heehee - it was my first time too, glad to spread the joy around :)

Jakki said...

Gee, thanks! :-) I've got the 8 random things about me, but I KNOW there aren't 8 people who read my blog. I'll fix a cuppa of [mostly] decaf coffee and browse through the comments over on my blog to see who I can find. Otherwise, I guess I can tag some of the people I read.

Marguerite said...

OK. I accept the challenge.

I'm going to see if I can come up with 8 random things about me that aren't on my 100 Things About Me List. It might be difficult.

pat said...

Oh dear....out of sheer laziness - I may reuse my "weird things" ...I'll have to go reread it.
I enjoyed your random list!! - and can't wait to see your sweater...I think I know what it is!

I have the same problem as Jakki since I know I do not have 8 people who read my blog. The people who do read it are already tagged by you.(LOL) Oh well, I tagged them again but told them they didn't have to write 8 additional things about themselves.(vbg)

Rebecca said...

These memes are always very interesting to read so I don't mind being tagged! Hands, eh? That must be why you knit so many mittens! I love going to old cemetaries, too and I am very much a creature of habit. I even look at the phone as an intrusion into my privacy and only answer it if I feel like talking. Afterall, isn't that what an answering machine is for?

I got my 8 random things up. ; )

I'm sure you would have been a wonderful builder/contractor.

I really enjoy studying hands, too.

Have a wonderful week!

I came from Margene's to read you. I love your cotton surf socks.

I too love old cemeteries. Anywhere. They are lovely. I have a pretty painting of one, that I may post in your honor soon
