The Dreamer

Today is Saturday and once again I am behind in my what's new. Certainly not that.  I'm not counting it as one of my 5 facts.

Yesterday was 5 Fact Friday...I'm thinking the first one because if not I missed the entire week last week. So here goes...perhaps 5 facts you don't already know about me...but I'm pretty much an open book.

1.   I'm a dreamer.   Always have been.   When I was young it was a coping skill. I would dream of the future and all the things I was going to be.   Singer, writer, wife,  Mom and numerous others.   It turned out that some of those things came true and the others like writing, I'm just starting to get serious about now...

 2.  To me Kindness Matters: big time...I dislike intensly, mean spirited people.   I have fought my way through that and no longer tolerate it around me...thankfully for the most part I am surrounded by kind,  loving people and if I see someone being mean to a child or an animal I will speak up...  we could solve world problems just by being kind to each other..

 3.  I love to laugh and I love making others laugh. Life is to short not to laugh.   I also know that sometimes life isn't fair and laughter is put on the back burner but without my sense of humor I would not have made it to this stage of my life still intact...

4.  Reading, writing and escapes at the end of the day.  I read everything except newspapers.  I hate newsapers.  Love biographies,  novels and lately children's books...of course to read childrens book you need a little partner to snuggle problem at my house.   Writing is getting better and better.  This blog is really helping.

5.  I hate housework but love a clean house.   So recently I hired a lovely lady to clean my house once a month.  The rest of the time...we do it.   The only place that seems to be in constant disarray is my office...hmmm,  I'm going to work on that as soon as I finish here.

I can relate to all of your five facts! Well, except for the knitting. I'd replace that with photography :)

Hi! Just popping in to see what's happening :-)
I could have written your 5 facts about myself... that doesn't surprise me now :-)
Have bookmarked your blog on my toolbar thingy so it will be easier to pop in now.
Congratulations on your blog award... good for you GF... have a great weekend!

Hi Cheryl,
I love your list....I agree with everything except the knitting (I've made a few scarves but I'm not a knitter) - we have much in common. I wish more people felt that kindness matters - it's so important and we could stand a bit more of it today! Thanks much for your kind comment last month on my Reflection of You guest post!
