The girls over at Blogging for Fun have challenged me to write about what I love. Since I make a pretty constant practice of proclaiming my undying love for my husband and kids, I thought I would focus on some other stuff I love instead.
I love music! I love anything with a beat, and anything with a message that stirs my heart. When I was growing up I got into my head that I wanted to learn to play the piano, so I taught myself how to read music to play…well. I used to love and sit and play every single song in a songbook. The harder the piece the better. I also love anything with a beat that rocks or has a message that rocks my soul. I love to sing along at the top of my lungs while bopping to the beat. I also discovered a new passion playing the drums on the game Rock Band for Wii.
I love to crochet!! The harder the stitches, the more challenge, the more fun it is! That was something else I made up my mind I wanted to learn how to do. My mom bought me a book when I was young and I sat down and taught myself. There is nothing better than working on a project while watching a movie on a cold winter evening.
I love movies!!! I love to laugh, so I love comedies. The funnier, the better!! I have a vast collection of movies that continue to grow. If I love it, or it touches me, I have got to have it!!!
I love to read. My favorite series by far is the Harry Potter books by J. K. Rowling.
I love the whole magical world of Hogwarts. I love the movies! I love the movie “Gone With the Wind”, the book of the same title, and the sequel. I love anything written by Danielle Steel, Debbie Macomber, and Nora Roberts. I have a whole slew of favorite authors, but those are the top ones that come to mind.
I am a big kid, and I love games. What began as a favorite past time with my mom and dad continues to this day with my own kids. I love to play cards, Lego games, and board games.
I love to cook! I love to make a recipe my own!! I have a collection of favorite recipes that I have perfected . The only downside of this love, is that I hate doing dishes. Got to take the good with the bad with that one.
I love to write. I love to work on my website from the posts to the design to the music that brings it to life. I love the whole creative process.
Although I love my dogs, I have loved cats since birth. I am fascinated with their big long bushy tails and love to entice them into singing a few bars for me. I love their “make me like you!” attitude which is so much like my own.
I am one of those nut jobs that love winter and the beauty of snow. I would rather freeze my a$$ off than roast to death. I love Christmas and the magic of a Christmas snow.
Last but certainly not least, I love to laugh! Just like the old dude in Mary Poppins, I would be dancing on the ceiling if it were possible literally laughing my a$$ off at the tiniest things until tears are streaming down my face and I am literally choking on myself. I love being silly, and it seems I get sillier with age. Mooning is definitely not out of the question. I love to proclaim that I am a few sandwiches short of a picnic or loony as a tune, because that is exactly what I am and proud of it. I tend to live life having more fun than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest just because life is to short not to. Until next time when I give you another glimpse into the life of a truckers wife.
