Thursday Thirteen


This post is brought to you by words that begin with the letter "C."

1.  Chocolate - I love chocolate!  I would say, "Who doesn't?" but I have relatives who don't like it.  Strange to me!  Chocolate ice cream is my favorite followed by chocolate milkshakes.  I also like chocolate cake and Reese's.

2.  Calendar - Up until last year, I bought a new calendar every year.  I liked making it neat and pretty and filling it with birthdays and other special events.  Now that I'm retired, I don't really need a physical calendar.  I just use Google calendar on my phone.

3.  Crime - I watch a lot of true crime shows and read a lot of true crime books.  My most recent true crime book was In Cold Blood by Truman Capote.  I also read fictional crime books and watch crime drama.  My favorite used to be Criminal Minds, but I've also watched every episode of Law and Order and Law and Order SVU multiple times.

4.  Classic Rock - This is my favorite music genre, although I like a few other types.  Some of the bands I like are Aerosmith, Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, you know, the rock gods!

5.  Coca-Cola - If I had the money, I'd decorate a room with Coke memorabilia.  I love it!  I also love to drink it, but as I've gotten older, I have cut down to one-a-day.

6.  Crafting - I love making anything crafty, painted wood, scrapbooking, sewing, creating with my cricut.  Crafting makes everything better!  It feeds my creative side.

7.  Carrabas - Great restaurant!  I love the rigatoni and the fettucine, but mostly the steak marsala.  I love their house salad, but the best thing is the bread!  Those seasonings with olive oil are incredible with warm bread.

8.  Cauliflower - I just recently discovered that I really like cauliflower.  I used to like it when my mom made it with cheese sauce, but now I prefer it roasted.

9.  Camera - A few years ago, my husband bought me a Canon DSLR camera.  I'd love to use it all the time, but it's not super portable, so I only take it out when I know I'm going to want to take good photos.  Usually, I just use my phone.

10. Children - I love my children, as I'm sure most of you do, too.  I always wanted to be a mom when I was growing up.  I have 5 children, 3 are my husband's and 2 are mine.  Twins. They are all grown up, and I'm getting to be a grammy now.

11. Coloring - I spend a lot of time coloring.  It's something else that feeds my creative side.  No one every sees my coloring, but it's fun to do.

12. Cabinets - I've been cleaning out cabinets lately and finding an assortment of goodies like binoculars, some sheers for the windows, wine glasses, and new toothbrushes.  I've also been accumulating various items to donate.

13. Cats - I think cats are adorable, and I happen to believe that mine is extra-special.  She has beautiful green eyes and is so soft!  She's the best!

  1. What a great list! I love chocolate, too, but lately it hasn't liked me very much. I always buy a calendar (or two) because I like to see the pictures. We have one with deer on it in the kitchen and I have one with scenes from the US in my office.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
