Tagged last week! 7 things

I'm not sure who got to me first but I think I'm listed at a number of different blogs with this I figured I had better do it before it gets out of control!

So, here goes!

1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.
2. Post THE RULES on your blog.
3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag 7 people and link to them.
5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.

I was tagged last week by Rebel inOntario but had a houseful of company! Things are very quiet now so here goes!

1. I have an addictive personality with whatever I do. If i find a new author, I have to read everything by them. If I embrace a new hobby, it's all in, go hard and enjoy. I very seldom do anything in half measures.

2. I carry with me in my pocket a special 'gratitude' rock that I got in one of those fancy carved candles way back when. My eldest daughter gave it to me for Christmas and I was so happy when I found my Hematite treasure. It gives me strength and a warm fuzzy feeling knowing it's there whenever I need it.

3. I enjoy being alone but don't consider myself lonely. Solitude helps me put my thoughts in order so when I'm around family and friends, I don't bring my baggage along.

4. I learned to drive a standard transmission in 1 weekend - condition I needed to meet in order to get my '72 VW Bug...oh what a great car that was!

5. I have a desk collection! As dumb as that sounds it sort of just piece at a time. i have 4 in my home now...down from 7 at 1 time!!!!!

6. I like change! I like to carry it with me and spend it before I break a bill...and I like to know where all the pennies are when I balance the bank accounts. I nearly had a fit when DH didn't take his ATM receipt!

7. I like meeting new people. I didn't always, I was sort of shy but not to the point of being reclusive. DH is so outgoing, I think some of it rubbed of on me!

So now comes the hard part of tagging someone else. I realize this has been going around for a while, so please don't be offended if I tag you and you can't comply...we're all friends here, this is meant to be fun, not a task.

So I will tag Bliss,Margaret,Heather, Lesley, Lucie, Brenda,
Iceland Mom

It has been so long since I've been able to read your blog. DD has messed up our home computer and we can't get the internet! I've "stolen" her laptop while she's out and am trying to quickly catch up with everyone! You and I have a lot in common! I also am an obsessive person. I get in the mood to do something and can't hardly do anything else! I was also very shy and have really "come out"! I am really impressed with your progress on Frederick! I have gotten him but it will be ages before I can start him! I have never stitched on black fabby and am kind of scared!! But I'm really encouraged by all you stitchers who are doing such wonderful pieces on black! Better go - as you can tell, I love to talk! Have a great day!
