I've been tagged

My Best Bud Melinda tagged me from Country Dreaming and the rules are you are supposed to post 6 random things about yourself.....then tag 6 more people. I usually don't like tags, but I always love to learn more things about my blogging friends, so I am going to be compliant. Plus if I don't, Melinda might flick me next time I see her, and she has a pretty mean flick!

Okay six random things....let's see what fascinating things I can rummage up....

-I have a complete filing system for all the things I tear out of magazines that I might find useful at some later point and time (I can hear you thinking..."She's a little OCD!") I have files for recipes, decorating, home improvement ideas, etc. since I have way too many magazine subscriptions.

-I have a sachet of dried lavender that I rub over over bed pillows before we go to sleep at night. It makes for the most heavenly of dreams.

-I feel compelled to bake everyone at work a homemade birthday cake, whether they are in my immediate area or not, because I like to celebrate their special day. I have a list in a drawer and know all their favorites.

-I think whoever came up with the bumper sticker "PRACTICE RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS" was genius. Nothing makes me happier than sending someone a box of specially selected presents, specially gift wrapped, with a handful of glitter thrown in on top (don't comment if you work at a post office) to unsuspecting family/friends.

-I have a serious problem buying books and need to find a local chapter of book buying anonymous. I belong to a book club and order monthly as well as patronize Half Price Books and Borders on a regular basis, and fantasize about having built in bookcases through out the house. I get butterflies (the good ones) when I see home that have those floor to ceiling libraries, especially if there is a rolling ladder to access all the treasures.

-One of the best days in my entire life was when I went snorkeling at Poipu Beach in Kauai. The minute I was able to see all of the tropical fish in the water swimming around, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I floated on top of the water for HOURS mesmerized with all their beautiful colors.

Okay now to pass the assignment.....You can do it!!!! I pick the following folks:
Please forgive me if you are a tag free zone....let me know and I will select someone else.

Carrie at Cottage Cozy
Elizabeth at Gossamer Wings

Um, Nanc...I, too, have an accordion folder filled with all of my favorite magazine tearouts: ideas/colors/crafts/decorating/building.

Not only that, one of my big dreams for my "next house" is...drum roll please...a library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves! All of their lives, I've told my kids to save books for when they get their own libraries.

Lots of books, huh? Perhaps someday I will share on my blog the PILES of books that are next to my bed on the nighttable, under it, next to it, behind it.

I think we are twins separated at birth. I also think that instead of OCD, it's "great minds think alike"!

You did good. I'm glad I'm not going to have
to flick you. Have you changed your background
paper?? Thanks also for the "following" I
saw your picture this am.


Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said... worries about tagging me...I will be compliant too! By the way #1 on your list seems to be popular. I have a file like that too, but it is in a binder! And btw my craft room has wonderful built in book shelves on three walls from celing to floor, funny though they are filled with crafting goodies! Oh well.

Stay Cozy, Carrie

All right, all right!! How can I refuse this tag? I'm sure that you won't mind if I break the rules and don't tag others, but I will post 6 random things about myself!!

This blog is starting to look really fall-ish!!
Very inspiring and pretty!!

Hope your weekend is going well! Thanks for always making me smile! ;O)
HUGS and love,

Oh and P.S. I spray my pillow and sheets with lavender linen spray before bed!! It always makes me sleep better!!

Nice to learn some more about you! I can relate to several of them. I have to admit that I am not as organized as you are. What a sweet gesture to bake everyone a cake. I know they love that! Have a great day!

Cathy said...

Hi Nancy - It's so nice to learn a little bit more about you. Rubbing lavendar on your pillows is a wonderful idea and surely must contribute to sweet dreams.

Its starting to look like fall around here. Can it be true that its almost here? Yikes.
