Eight Things Meme


I was tagged by Karen Edmisten for this Meme. "What's a Meme," you ask? Well, you'll see...it's something that connects us blogging people and gives us something to do, as if we had nothing to do!

Here are the rules:

"For this meme, each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog."

Okay, okay, okay, I'll do this...only because KAREN asked me to, how can I say "No thank you?"

Here are my eight facts or habits:

1) I love sunflowers, daisies, well I love all flowers.
2) I love to do organic gardening. I love providing nourishing fresh veggies for my family whom at harvest time get very tired of me saying, "FRESH from the garden!" as I put the yummy veggies on the table!
3) I do not practice what I preach all of the time when it comes to taking a break...I always have so much to do that I don't get enough sleep, trying to stay up a bit longer to get it done and I am always advising others to slow down and take a break and get enough sleep.
4) Eight? Do I have to come up with eight? Okay. Facts and habits, let's see...FACT: I am a mother of five...so...I double tie my own sneaker laces!
5) I sometimes will move my chair --several times I might add, when I am sitting outside (on those occasions that I take a few moments to pause and enjoy nature's beauty) to sit in the last bits of sunshine of the day.
6) Whew, only three more to go...I ALWAYS stand by the door and wave "Good Bye" EVERY TIME my husband or children leave the driveway, blowing a couple of kisses, too, followed by a prayer for their safety.
7) I LOVE dark chocolate!
8) I absolutely LOVE nature!

Suzanne,
You are very welcome! I absolutely loved your tribute in photos to your son, Simeon! It was so heartwarming with precious photos and the music just topped it off!

Yes, isn't dark chocolate the BEST?

God bless,
Donna

All done :)
Hey, I double-tie my shoes too--and I only have 3 kids! Started doing that after the first one.
