Tagged Again!

I've been tagged my Michelle, of I'm A Little Teapot, to play the Seven Interesting Things game. I did this not too long ago, so let's see if I can come up with seven more.

  1. I love to sing. By myself. When no one is around. Once, I was wailing away in the garage, when my neighbor happened to stop by. Major embarrassment.

  2. I'm a frustrated artist. I used to draw, and paint in watercolors. Now I channel my artistic urges by shopping in thrift stores, arranging my finds, and photographing them for you.

  3. I hate to vacuum and clean bathrooms. I don't mind dusting, and I love to empty the dishwasher. This last one may have something to do with the fact that dishes are involved because, as you know, I love dishes! :)

  4. I am addicted to Sudoku, the Japanese logic puzzles. Have you tried them? They're great.

  5. I get nervous if I don't have something to read. My husband and I both read at the dinner table. Yes, I know this is rude, but I guess it's OK if everyone at the table is doing it.

  6. In person, I'm very quiet and shy. Online, I can schmooze with the best. Go figure.

  7. I love the smell of horse manure; it reminds me of my childhood. Cow manure, not so much. Chicken manure -- yikes.

Well, there you have it -- me, in a nutshell. I find it really hard to choose others to tag, so I'm just going to leave it open to you. If anyone wants to play, consider yourself tagged!


  1. Hey, Miss Popular:) I would love to see your watercolors sometime, if you feel like sharing.

    I'm like you, in person, I'm not so talkative, but on line....I am blessed with the gift of gab!

    Hope you have a great weekend.


  2. Morning! Thanks for the list of fun facts -- and you do write wonderfully! I'd love to see some of your artworks -- maybe corners around your wonderful home? And your arrangements do show the eye of an artist -- great sense of balance for the colors and textures! Love the fact about reading at the table -- I must have a book or magazine around! And Bookshelves! And reading lamps by a cozy chair!

  3. Loved getting to know you. I like Sudoku,too, but I'm not very good. I'm just the opposite..I can talk, talk,talk...but putting words to paper not as easy. Hope you share some of your art work,do you have it displayed in your home? Linda

  4. Mary,

    Love the interesting facts. I love to read also and get "nervous" if I am on the last unread book. I do sudoku, but only online. I have to check my answers constantly and if I get messed up, I have to quit and start a new one. Obviously some sort of undiagnosed learning disability from way back, LOL.

    I am really enjoying your blog; keep up the excellent work, or is it play??

  5. Oh my gosh...I have to have something to read too!!! I actually even take a magazine, catalog, book or something with me when we go out to dinner and will read in a restaurant. My husband is used to it.

    Enjoyed your list. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You're welcome anytime.

  6. Hello Mary
    I love reading your list of idiosyncrasies!
    I totally identify with the singing.. can sing my heart out in the bath..and being shy.. my alter ego writes my blog!
    Another fascinating read... thank you!
    Best regards

  7. Dearest Mary, I loved reading your tag list. It's so fun to get to know people this way and realize that most of us have something in common. As for singing, I couldn't carry a note in a brown, paper bag!! :)
    I considered myself tagged because I wanted to play, too so I listed 7 things about myself and sent the tag on to others that want to get in on the fun.
    Thanks so much...

  8. Fun things about you. I don't like unloading the dishwasher, too fiddly, but like vacuuming, and I, too, have the heart, but not the voice of a great singer.

  9. Mary, thanks for coming by my blog today!! I think we are supposed to be friends because my dream is to live in a little red house! And half of your tag comments are exactly like me (except the horse manure which we've been around with my daughter's riding lessons alot in the last 3 years!!). I love your photos on your blog...I'm running out the door but I could write so much more! I'll check back in with you!!!

  10. Hi Mary,

    I loved reading these interesting facts about you - I had to laugh, the one thing I hate to do is empty the darn dishwasher! I love the dishes though. I'm a big reader too and lately I've started more than I can count. I think I have a book to read in every room and two in the car :)


  11.'s cow manure for me. I used to say, when passing a dairy farm...."Ah, smells like home"...but then I said it around someone who didn't know I grew up on a dairy farm and they looked at me a little strange......sigh.......actually I am a little strange :-)

  12. I hate to empty the dishwasher but like you I get nervous if there isn't any fresh reading material around. Great post!

  13. It is so much fun to learn these little facts about you! I love to sing too - can't carry a tune though :-).

  14. Hi Mary!! That was fun to learn about you. LOL about singing..I cannot carry a tune in a bucket and remember being told that by my little friend's mom (who sang like Julie Andrews) when I was nine. Talk about ruining me for life! LOL

    How hilarious about manure!!! ROFL!


  15. Hi, Mary BUONA DOMENICA !!!

  16. Thanks for playing along :) We have more things in commong than I knew..

    I hope you will share some of your artwork :)

  17. Love your list as always! I am a frustrated artist too...and oh how I hate cleaning bathrooms and vacuuming!! I can dust all day but bathrooms? *shiver* I really think we have an awful lot in I wish we lived closer!


  18. Oh no...I was trying to type,
    Don't know what was sent :(
