8 lists of 8!

I could not figure a way to work this video into the lists below, so I am just putting it here for a little laughter. It is so like Bubbie...he comes to bed of the morn, and jumps up, and for the longest time, he always jumped up on me. He will walk, sometimes jump from me to Roger or Roger to me. It is against the rules to step on the bed. He gives this little meow, just about like the meow on this. Only, it isn't so much that he is hungry...he just wants one of us to be awake and maybe get up and move around. If we make room for him, he will snuggle into one of us and stay there if one of us pets him. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it...now for the business at hand.

MB, over at Small City Scenes of Stanwood was tagged to do this meme that was Eight lists of Eight categories....she didn't tag anyone but invited anyone that wanted to, to do it. So, I have been working on my lists the past couple or three days and here they are:

8 TV shows we watch on occasion:

1. Ballykissangel
2. Masterpiece Theater/Mystery
3. On the Record with Greta Van Susteren
4. Law & Order, all of them
5. Antiques Roadshow
6. American Idol
7. Pawn It
8. Frazier

8 favorite places to eat & drink:
1. Yoder's Kitchen in Arthur, Illinois (probably my favorite place of all)
2. Hardee's (I love their thick burgers!)
3. Shoney's (their breakfast bar--none here any more but I eat there any chance I get.
4.Benjamin's--a little hometown diner in Rockville
5. Olive Garden
6. Texas Roadhouse

8 things I look forward to:
1. Seeing Lorelei
2. Seeing/talking to our girls
3. Picture taking
4. Comments on my blog....I love comments.
5. Going fishing
6. Road trips--be it a short drive or a long one.
7. A good book to read
8. Fresh tomatoes

8 things I love about winter:

2. Reason to make soups
3. Good time to curl up with a book
4. More time and inspiration to quilt/quiltpiece

5. To get more quilt tops actually quilted.
6. A GPS
7. A trip to Tennessee
8. A new desktop computer

8 things I am passionate about:

2. Photography
3. Anything quilting
4. Good books
5. Internet (maybe passionate is a little strong, but I sure do enjoy it)

8 things I have learned from the past:
1. Be careful what you say and how you say it.
2. Don't dwell on things that made/make you angry (I still have a long ways to go about one particular thing there.)
3. Be patient.
4. Don't always be in a rush.
5. Don't be afraid to be yourself, again I am fifty+ years old and sometimes am a bit shy.
6. Listen to my instincts.
7. Eat dessert first...you never know when you will die. Actually, that was the motto of one of Sarah's friends in high school.... She did actually live by the rule.
8. I definitely need to write notes to myself.

8 things I want/need:
1. A better memory
2. Need to lose weight
3. Need to reorganize things.
4. Need to redo our fence
5. Need to put rails on our front porch because of Lorelei
6. Need more time...always need more time
7. I want more flowers that bloom later in the summer and into fall.

I don't want to tag anyone, but if you decide to do your lists, please let me know. I love reading this type of meme.
I got the above almost ready last night late. I did finish my quilt top. Now to the business of finding what I want to use for a backing. I like wild backs, but Roger thought I should use a plain one. I think I will have to rummage around in my fabric to see what I have.

NEVER enough time Rose - never. :)
I got my Hubs a GPS for Christmas and today when we were out he said he might not ever look at a map again. We both laughed.

I love your list, Rose. You thought os many that I didn't think of (like tomatoes--yum; like being patient; like making soups; etc...

I loved your lessons from the past. I really struggled with that one..

Thanks for doing this. Glad you finished your quilt top... Can't wait to see it completed.

I enjoyed reading your lists. I hope you get a GPS. We really like ours and have seen some beautiful parts of the country thanks to the directions it gives.

I love all the Simon cat cartoons...that man is very clever and knows cats! We have a cat that tucks us in every night. She won't let us go to bed without coming in for a few minutes and going back and forth between us and then settling down on me for about 10 minutes and then she leaves for her own bed. Enjoyed your answers and "Go, Colts!"
