Six Uninportant Things About Me


Louise tagged me on this meme:

  1. I always wear socks to bed (summer/winter/spring/fall)
  2. I always wear sensible shoes ... I own three pairs...one for every day, one for gardening, one for special occasions. The everyday pair is worn 95 % of the time.
  3. I always clip my nails short ... don't have the time or care to paint them.
  4. I've been a homemaker for 27 years and can make an entire four course meal from whatever is at hand in the fridge or pantry.
  5. I prefer monochromatic color schemes with a splash of red
  6. my family is genetically programmed to LOVE potatoes ... probably from my Irish heritage
OK ... enough silliness. I'm going to tag Manny, Moe, & Jack to end this nonsense :)

I think you're right....loving potatoes is just an Irish thing! It's as good an excuse as I can come up with anyways!!! Thanks for sharing!

Many hugs........

My family could live off of mashed potatoes and gravy! It's one of the basic food groups right?

Potatoes...in some form were always a part of our meals growing up. Never baked potatoes though...guess it wasn't a Southern thing. And I am part Irish...coming from a town named Erin I guess that's kinda obvious!
I too, wear socks to bed every night!
And this was not nonsense...I enjoyed learning these tidbits about you.

Nonesense?...bah humbug!Your so silly!
These are good bits of info, now I won't send you the latest, greatest color of nail polish!
Does anyone not love potatoes? I know I do, in any form or recipe. Baked, mashed, au gratin, hash browns, scalloped, french fried, boiled, potatoe salad, breakfast, lunch or dinner! I think there's a blog about potatoes in there somewhere! tee hee!!

loved your list... I'm with you on the socks, the meal, potatoes, not the shoes though... but I am kind of practical.

That was fun to read! I like your list. You reminded me of the Gene Stratton-Porter book...her Father's Daugher..and her common sense shoes.
