I've Been Tagged

Recently I've discovered several new-to-me blogs that I've really been enjoying. One of those is Mt. Hope Chronicles. I enjoy Heidi's photography and also her thoughts on homeschooling. If you haven't visited her yet, you should! This week she tagged me with some bloggy fun, so here goes...

7 Random/Weird Things About Me:

  1. I have some texture issues with certain foods, such as: coconut, most nuts, tapioca, oatmeal, cream of wheat....

  2. I'm a history nerd. I like to read all of those historical markers you see around town, on the side of the road, etc. What can I say? I was raised by a dad who was the same way.

  3. I love Chopin's Nocturnes. In fact, I think I'll go put them on right now...be right back...

  4. I have a secret love affair with butter. I've been caught sneaking little bits of it while cooking.

  5. I love to write letters and also receive them. There's nothing quite as nice as walking out the mailbox and finding a handwritten letter from a far-away friend. I still keep in touch with a friend who's been a *pen pal* since we were both six!

  6. I want to learn calligraphy so badly! I just haven't taken the time to buckle down and do it yet. Maybe this year, since I'm teaching my daughter Italic handwriting and I'm practicing it with her and it's just a few steps away from calligraphy to me.

  7. I'm pretty much a cheapskate, er...frugal shopper.., when it comes to most everything these days: clothes, shoes, groceries, toiletries, etc.

I'm tagging Lisa at Daydreamin', Song at Corner of Song & Lee, Kristy Mae at this is me, Kari at logorrhea, Nancy at Chocolate Ink, Shannon at Bless Our Nest , and Angela at Hello, Dahrlin'.
If y'all don't want to participate though, there's no pressure, just having some fun!

Oh fun! Thanks for tagging me. I will join in by the weekend!

PS I love butter too. I mean, seriously. Butter substitutes (except olive oil) just frighten me. God created butter, with saturated fat AND wonderful flavor. And so clearly He intended for us to eat it that way! :-) I'm trying to balance my butter and EVOO usage, so I use both for different dishes - for roasting potatoes I'm down to just EVOO, but for sauteeing fish, there's no substitute for the flavor of butter. Oh, yum!

I love history and butter too.

The mail has definitely been getting to you first every time. I'm glad you are having fun with it. That was the goal. Thanks for playing.

I can't play. Wish I could!

I have texture issues with food, too. Thanks for making me feel like less of a freak!

I love butter too.

I am bad about writing letters and such, but I certainly love to get fun things in the mail. i.e. your thank you card. Loved it!

I love people's handwriting. It intrigues me. Your handwriting seems to match your personality, but I have seen some people whose handwriting doesn't match at all!

Talk to you very soon!

Thanks for the tag! I love reading these. I actually have a post scheduled to post today with some random things about me. :) I'll hurry and add your name. :)

Kari said...

I think I've still got some caligraphy supplies around somewhere. =) And I think I'm worse than you and textures--one word: dumplings! haha Thanks for the tag!

Lisa said...

Thanks for tagging me Lora! It will be fun. I will probably take a couple of days to post it so I can actually sort through all the weird things about myself and pare them down to just a few ;-)

Heidi said...

Thanks for playing, Lora! I have issues with coconut, too. It is one of the very few foods on my extreme dislike list.

Nancy said...

Thanks for tagging me...I'll definitely do it EVENTUALLY. A bit busy here these days....I'm sure you can relate!
