  • Authentic Friends that will tell you the truth lovingly

Hello, Long Time No Hear. . .

I haven't posted in such a long time.  It is not that I didn't have anything to say -- I just didn't feel I had anything worthwhile to blog about.  I have been feeling all kinds of frustration with the smallest things and whining just isn't my thing.

I will, however, provide a list of things that are NOT my favorite things this week followed by a list of my favorite things next week.

NOT My Favorite Things List (Part 1)
  • Gossipy people
  • People that enjoy disparaging others
  • Falling in the toilet in the middle of the night
  • Book smarts but no common sense
  • Expecting more of others that one gives
  • Brown-nosing (so transparently)
  • Elitists
  • Sinful Religious folks that judge
  • Perfect people - they are everywhere
  • Soggy piecrust
  • BAD Coffee - grrrrrrr
  • Ugly yarn - yes not all yarn is equal. . .
  • Knitting patterns for sale that should be free
  • Automated Customer Service - where is everybody?!!!
  • Tropical temperatures
  • Hot Flashes
  • Muscle tremors

I think that will do for now.  I reserve the right the revisit this list when this mood strikes again.  Tomorrow the My Favorite Things List
