Five Things About Me . . .
This is a photograph of me pushing my sister around in my doll pram. She fell asleep in it and I have books piled on top of her. I think I must have been around six years old in this. As you can see I have my priorities right. Family and books/knowledge. I think I can probably even tell you which books those are by looking at this photo . . . the top one is my mother's old home economics text book from when she went to high school. I about wore that one out and the bottom one is a volume from our encyclopedia from the geography series.
Yep . . . it's another five things about me post!
I like ketchup but only on certain things. I cannot stand it on anything in a bun, such as a hotdog or a hamburger. Take them out of the bun and I will quite happily eat them with ketchup. I think it's a bread/ketchup thing. I am also very particular about my ketchup. I like Heinz. I don't like any other kind. They are just not the same imho. I am pretty sure if you lined up a bunch of ketchup samplings I could tell you which one was Heinz without looking and just by tasting. To me there are no other kinds.
I save all of my paper scraps and I use them. This is a paper scrap I had from where I trimmed a water colour off. I turned it into a bookmark that I keep in my journal. Now you can print it off and have one too. I have fun scribbling and making use of every bit I have. I use up leftovers . . . be they paper or potatoes!
I don't drink tea, but I love tea pots. If I had the space I would collect them. I don't have the space though, and really at this time in my life I don't think it would be worth collecting them. They are just dust collections . . . things like this. That fact doesn't stop me from admiring them however . . . and I collect them on Pinterest, which takes up no room in my house and costs me nothing but my time. They also don't need dusting. It's win/win all around!
I have a thing for pin cushions. I truly love them. Any size or colour, or shape, or fabric, or whatever. I just love pin cushions. I like making them. I like using them. They are sitting all around my craft room.
This is my most favourite of them all.
I am afraid of heights. Whenever I am up high I feel like I am going to fall . . . or have the urge to jump. I don't know why but it scares me. I don't think I would really ever jump, but I feel like I want to. I first noticed this when I was in high school. There was a kind of a balcony near the new gym in our school. Whenever I was on it, I felt like jumping. I don't know if this is a common thing, or if I am wierd. I would never jump . . . I just feel like it . . . I stay away from high places and edges if I can. I don't like feeling like that. On the other end of the scale . . . I don't like being underground. I can remember being taken to an old mine once with a group of people. I was the only one who could not face going down into it. I started to but had to get off the elevator because I was feeling all panicked. I feel all claustrophobic. That is why I want to be cremated and thrown to the wind . . . so I can soar and fly.
And I think that's five! I hope you enjoyed learning a bit more about me. I enjoy this exercise each week because I think it's healthy to think about your strengths and weaknesses and everything in between!
Did any of you watch the first of the three part series on Cilla Black this week? What did you think of it? I quite enjoyed it actually. I had never really heard of her before I came over her to the UK.
A thought to carry with you through today . . .
What is spiritual strength?
It's knowing you don't have to compromise
yourself in any way, with anyone,
over anything in order to be content,
confident, and secure in life.
Cooking in The English Kitchen today . . . Cauliflower Cheese Pie.
Have a fabulous Thursday!
