TT#28: A "C" List

So, today is thirteen things about me that start with a letter of the alphabet.



Today is brought to you by the letter .... C!

(With a little help from the American Heritage Dictionary.)

C is for...

1. ...first letter of my real name.

2. ...chocolate, which is my favorite candy, and also dessert flavor. And also snack. And ice cream flavor.

3. ...carnivorous. I'm not a vegetarian. I love vegetables, but they're not my only source of nutrition.

4. ...crochet. I DO NOT like to crochet. I've tried, but I have a hard time figuring it out, and I decided I don't really like crocheted things anyway. I'd rather knit, although I haven't for a while.

5. ...cabin. I would love to build and live in a cute cabin somewhere in the middle of a woodsy nowhere.

6. ...calcium. Something I need to take regularly, or I turn into a screaming bundle of nerves.

7. ...Common Prayer, Book of. ditto from number six. Seriously. I do much better every day if I spend some time every morning and evening using it.

8. ...camisole. I have several of these from Shade clothing, and I love them. They make looking trendy a much more modest and cute proposition.

9. ...campfire. I love campfires. In fact, I'll bet we could have one tonight already, now that I think about it. Cool!

10. ...camping. My favorite form of vacation. I love to find a really pretty, quiet spot and hang out, with a tent and a campfire.

11. ...chamomile tea. My favorite kind of herbal tea.

12. ...cast iron skillets. This comprises most of my cookware--I think I have at least six), and I love using them. My boys tease me that I will never be weak-wristed, with all the exercise I get handling those heavy things full of food.

13. ...cavity. Something I am unfamiliar with, since I have no cavities whatsoever. Thank God for good teeth.

I want to get a copy of the Book of Common Prayer. I think I would like using it.

I love camisoles too. They are simple, elegant and - as you said - trendy.

Chocolate, cabins, camping, and chamomille - some of my favorite things. :D

Kay said...

I like this list. I like many of the things on there as well!

I can't believe I hadn't found your blog before! Brilliant! I love Chocolate - dark is the best, followed by semi-sweet. Milk chocolate works in a pinch though. lol

Great list - I agree on almost all of them!
I used "A" for my self description. :)

Happy TT!

Great idea for a TT.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Trisha said...

Oh, I just LOVE to go camping! Great list!

kay said...

Enjoyed the list. About the iron skillets--me, too. I love them, and I take good care of them. I have some that have been in our family for three generations.

Knitting was so easy to learn that I knew there had to be a catch. After the fourth time that I started over when my toddlers pulled the needle out when I was on my 40th row or so, I decided it would have to wait a few years. I'm a cast iron junkie too!

Three P's in a Pod said...

That is a super list! Thanks for saying that about the Calcium...that reminds me of another reason I need to be taking it!

Sandy C. said...

No Cavities!!!!! Do the calcium pills help? I wish I could say the same :( I have a mouth full of fillings.....darn chocolate!

MammaMia said...

That's a great list! I don't think I would have been able to come up with that many!

My Ice Cream Diary said...

My kids were so disturbed by the mumbling and frown I had on when I tried crochetting that I finally gave up trying for good.

Will you invite me to share your cabin? We could melt chocolate for our smores over your campfire and try to give ourselves cavities. =)

Great list. If I had been astute and READ THE DIRECTIONS I would have seen that there was a theme. Has that always been there??? Next week, I am going to do this weeks theme, just because I thought it was cool, and I DON'T think I want to do a "gross" list.

Wonderful list, and I am so with you on the chocolate! :-) Also, congrats on your new violin. Awesome! Will we get a YouTube sometime of your family playing? That would be awesome!
