Am I really weird?

I have been tagged by Kathy from Kat Collects, I have to list 6 things about myself, so I opted to list some things that others think are weird of me (and they have told me). Here goes:

1. I cringe everytime I have to open a can of biscuits! Its the anticipation of when they are going to POP that scares me...which means I usually use bisquik and avoid those cans.

2. I WILL have a coat on if the temperature is not at least 75 degrees, I stay cold and it drives me nuts.

3. I live on Little House on the Prairie.....no airconditioning, my house is heated with an outside woodstove (as well as our hot water), I hang my clothes on the fence..yes fence..in the summertime, but I do have running water and an indoor bathroom :)

4. I dont like to park close to other cars, I have a big van and will park waaay out in the parking lot, I get nervous if I have to back out......this drives my kids nuts, but they need the exercise!

5. I have over 100 cookbooks, and loads of other books...I love to read! Current reading "The Last Lecture"

6. Now my family just doesnt get this, but I would rather wear my old costume jewelry than diamonds and pearls......my husband learned this lesson after he bought me some diamond earrings twice...and I took them back Twice and went shopping at the thrift store to buy what I really wanted.
And see that little puppy, isnt she the cutest, and I am really jealous because she is not mine, that is what my girlfriend in Florida got for her christmas present...she doesnt think I am weird.

Oh My I too hate those biscuit cans, I hate to open them. I love the way you dry your clothes, you will have to snap a picture when it warms up!

It was so fun to read your list! I had to laugh when I read about the biscuit cans, because I do the same thing. I hold my head back and do the half closing of the eyes thing, LOL. And yes, I am still loving my sweet pink angel from you, and always will. She has the cutest face ever, you can't help but love her : ) Oh and that puppy, AWWWWWW i want one of those for Christmas too! I wish you a Happy New Year filled with love, good health, and many blessings from God.

Hi Mary,
I am LOVING your bunny banner, and love seeing the little bunnies you made. Are you going to be making any Easter items for your shop? I am in a Easter mood already and on the lookout for cute things : ) I hope you had a Happy New Years Eve

You are darling!
I agree with Diane take pics of the clothes drying...how wonderful and fresh.I so want one of those old umbrella type clotheslines...
Prairie living sounds perfect!
I'm glad I refound your blog today!

Rose Garden Romantic said...

LOL! Those are good ones. I especially love the part about your preference for costume jewelry to real diamonds- ME TOO!! I would much rather have some money to spend at the thrift or antique mall! Most people just can't fathom that. So funny!
