10 things I love.

Wow, I was very pleasantly surprised last night to see that Josie had tagged me with this Happy game award. Thanks so much Josie!

The rules are that I need to tell everyone 10 things in my life that I love, preferably not family as that is pretty much a given! So here goes:

  1. Running— it is my new passion. I never ever thought I would be a runner but, as it turns out, it is just what I needed in my life.
  2. Rollerblading— yep! I started because my girls begged me to buy a pair of rollerblades while we were shopping for theirs. I gave in and now have a new love!
  3. Jeans, jeans, jeans! — now that I can look and feel comfortable in them, I can’t live without them!
  4. Growing my own vegetables — I live for my garden! Last year I had to miss out as hubby had a camaro parked on top. This year my foots down! I get my garden space back!
  5. The Sun— I am a Leo. Nuff said! πŸ˜‰
  6. Giraffes— one of the most magnificent creatures made by God, next to lions of course. If I could have a giraffe in the back yard, I damn well would! giraffes…..
  7. Reading–Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett is my favorite book.
  8. The beach–I don’t live anywhere near one and it has been about 24 years since I have last been to one. My grandparents used to take me camping in British Columbia to a beach near Salmon Arm for the month of August every summer. I celebrated my birthday on the beach and around a camp fire. Pure bliss. And I will be honest and admit that I am very jealous of anyone who lives near enough one to frequent it when the feel like.!! 😳
  9. Nature–I can hike or bike on the nature trails for ever! I just love the trees and birds and the smell of nature. It makes me feel alive, especially with the sun shining.
  10. My ipod touch–it wasn’t until last summer when I got my first ipod. What a wonderful gadget! I don’t know how I ever lived without it!

Apparently I am now supposed to send this happy award to 10 other people who I think deserve it. I am not going to do that as I think everyone deserves it and because most of my blogging friends have seemed to receive this in the past day or two.

    We are going to do a garden this year. I tried one two years ago and failed miserably! Nothing worked. This year I’m going to do more research and get myself together!!

    Thanks for sharing your 10 things!

    Karyn, I love this list! Thank you for the suggestion on my blog about square foot gardening. I’d never heard of it! I’m excited to get started and see what we can produce in our own backyard. πŸ™‚

    I’ll refrain from mentioning that I am about 20 minutes away from that place that shall not be mentioned. I hope someday you get to enjoy it again, I really mean that.
