Tagged Again

My friend Ms. Smockity tagged me and I thought I might reply to this tag, but with an added twist at the end. The rules are:

*Link the person who tagged you.

* Mention the rules in your blog.

* Tell about six unspectacular quirks of yours.

* Tag a new set of six following bloggers by linking them.

* See last item in fuchsia at the end...

So, after much thought (about 5 minutes), here are my six unspectacular quirks:

1. I LOVE to hang my clothes outdoors to dry even though my husband claims that his underwear is "crunchy" when it comes in all fresh smelling off the clothesline.

2. I am a stickler for time schedules. I make up my daily schedule each morning and getting off schedule sometimes rattles me. I think I passed this quirk on to at least one of my sons!

3. I get up early (5:30 a.m.) at least 5 mornings a week to journal first and then exercise--even though I am retired. It just starts my day off right!

4. I LOVE to sleep late (about 7:00) on weekends!

5. I am a pack rat and hate throwing things away because "someday I might need it!"

6. I am relearning how to oil paint and am having a grand time smearing paint on canvas, good shirts, shiny new easel and everything nearby--such fun! Maybe I need to revisit my finger painting days also!

I now tag: Maryls, Patricia, BooMama, Sharon, Peggy, Larry

* Now my plan is to write about these six quirks the next couple of weeks and provide pictures when appropriate and available. Then, I challenge each of you, dear readers, to do the same.

  1. What fun to read the quirks of a friend whom you've "known" for several years, yet knew nothing about her quirks!

    Also love the reminiscing about your first year.... bringing up my own reminiscences of 60 years ago!
