I Hate Socks & Some Other Things That I Love

I don't like wearing socks- they scrunch up by my ankles and soon find their way into my shoes and under my feet. So I don't wear 'em until the snow flies.....or buy new socks.....or wear tie shoes.

I hate wearing glasses-they are always dirty and I feel like I am walking around in a cloud. Just after I clean them they slide down my nose and when I attempt to push them back where they belong my oily finger seems to miss the nose piece and land on the lens instead.....and I am back to square one.

But I surely LOVE a piece of chocolate cake with thick, chocolate frosting and a cup of tea after a dinner of fried chicken. That was my favorite meal as a kid- chicken and/or chicken dumpling soup with chocolate cake for dessert. Right now I am settling for a chocolate bran muffin.

Since the weather is cooler and it's getting dark earlier I enjoy curling up in bed under the covers at an early hour and reading a good book (thus ignoring the housework temporarily) on occasion.

I enjoy a feeling of freedom as a mature woman of not having to impress anyone.....meaning I have some confidence in whom I am. I have my own style (or lack thereof???) My house is not perfectly cleaned or stylish decorated and my craft area is usually a total disaster...but that is me and if you don't like it....oh well! I'm glad that I do have confidence so do some things independently of friends or family. I do not need to have someone by my side at all times.

I like working alone- no one is looking over my shoulder watching my every move (that has ALWAYS unnerved me), I can just think better alone, and it's actually peaceful (if the phone is not ringing off the hook).

I love having such wonderful and unique grandchildren (and their parents who are doing a great job) even if I don't get to see them often.

And I love sunshine! After being alive in a world that is SO EXTREMELY complex how can you not love God's fabulous creation????

I hope all my blogger friends have a great weekend!
