Blog Hopping

For you and me.

Because my sidebar doth overflow, and in response to the many lovely awards received from the lovely bloggers that have nominated me, these are all blogs and sites that I enjoy visiting whenever I can. Sometimes for a laugh; Sometimes for inspiration; Sometimes to learn something new; Sometimes, just for the photos…whatever. Also, if I can’t find a page, I put it in this list so I can get to it faster the next time. ;)

So, this list will probably get longer…and longer…and longer. You have been warned.

Below these sites, I have compiled a list of facts that you may not know about me as well. I’m really pretty boring. But, you guys keep coming back to snore so… :)

25 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me

(Well, the first 7 you do because it’s copied from one of my previous posts…Nevertheless…)

  1. I’m extremely clumsy.  Severely so.  If I ever become a waitress, don’t sit at any of my tables.  I mean that sincerely and you can thank me later.
  2. What’s more fun is my short-term memory is nil. Seriously almost as bad as that dude in 50 First Dates.  You know who I’m talking about.
  3. I keep getting asked by lefties if I’m a lefty.  I’m not.  I can write legibly with both hands.  But I usually write with my right and do almost everything else with my left (including catching things).  I think it’s called cross-dominance rather than ambidextrous. But it’s fun to fool people sometimes.
  4. I’m really a painter. I’m much better at that than knitting or spinning.  But, I get to do that less.
  5. I actually like beets.  No.  It’s more like love more than life itself.
  6. I’m scared of dogs higher than my ankle.  I do like their photos though.
  7. Occasionally I obsess about snakes or alligators coming in the house through the toilets.  I fault too many horror movies as a young child.
  8. I like cheesy, girly movies.
  9. My speech is less than perfect. You could call me Mumbles.
  10. The name of my first and favorite cat was actually pretty obscene. I’m often tempted to use it for passwords.
  11. I’m a shower singer. I know. Ugh.
  12. Although I don’t go around publicizing it all the time, I am a Christian and I do want to be good to people.* Not a very popular pursuit these days, lol. *Still very much a work in progress here. See #13.
  13. I am susceptible to road rage. And sometimes I must pray and knit while at stoplights or things could get ugly.
  14. I don’t know how many spinning wheels will be enough.
  15. Ditto for spindles.
  16. I use the words “ain’t” and “y’all” with extreme regularity.
  17. I have a mild mischievous streak. But, it’s all in fun.
  18. I recently jumped on the Greek Yogurt bandwagon and I love it!
  19. I think I used to be smarter when I was younger…
  20. I still watch cartoons. Don’t judge me.
  21. I’m a dinosaur. If someone is upstairs, I would rather call than text.
  22. I still cry when I watch E.T. Yes, I still watch E.T. from time to time. What of it?
  23. I think Shonda Rhimes is a shero amongst women.
  24. I love coffee, but it doesn’t love me.
  25. If you cut me open, Tostitos and medium Salsa would flow from my veins.


  1. Hello! I love your blog! I have a blog about knitting and what not that you may be interested in. You can check it out here:

    Alexa K

  2. I found me! Also, these sites seem to be pretty cool. Now, If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to check some more out.

  3. Q – Love this blog! Laughed so hard at some of your “confessions” that I was crying. Is that a bad thing? LOL! Um, #17 – sounds as if you’re describing Girl Child? HUMMMM

  4. hey, thanks for the shout out! Already had some people head over to see what I have written about lately. Made me sort of ashamed of my ranting weekend last weekend. We will see if it shames me into being more calm this weekend. :-)

  5. “y’all” I use that often too. I get some flack from my friends and coworkers because we do not live in a southern state. All in good fun though.

  6. I spy Fondant Fibre! Thank you …..I really need to update and use my blog more though! x
