Ten Things Tuesday- Favorite Things

Don't we all have things that we consider our favorite things?

I don't pick a favorite movie or favorite band.
I don't even have a favorite song.

There are just too many good out of them.
I can't just pick my tip top,  the creme de la creme.
It is too hard.

But, I have other things that I put first.

So, this week's Ten Things Tuesday is 10 of my favorite things.
And here they are in no particular order:

1. Holiday decoration
  Halloween pirate skeleton
I love decorations that make noise and move. When I go to stores, I have to check out the holiday aisle so I can play.
I loved this so much, I bought it.
He tells jokes and sings "Get Down Tonight".

2. Hugs
  Hugs just make me feel good. I'm just gonna say it. If you don't like hugs AT ALL from ANYONE, you are just weird.

3. Zucchini
  My parents never grew it while I was growing up so I didn't know what I was missing.
I could eat it several times a week, fixed in many different ways.

4. Grilling out
   This was my awesome splurge this summer. In many families, the man is the griller. Not here. It is me. I love to grill. I love to smoke. I had to have a grill with a fireside smoke box. My last smoker was on it's last legs. Really- the legs were bent.

5. Baking/Cooking
   Baking and cooking is in my soul. It really is at the heart of who I am. I even have a cooking blog- Yummy stuff.

6. Cats
    I have always been a cat person. Sadly, I am allergic so my cat makes my feel bad physically.
But, I still cuddle her and damn the consequences. I don't call her my furbaby like some animal lovers do, but she is part of the family.

7. Dancing
  I love to dance. Honeyman won't go dancing with me unless we are at a wedding. Guess what? We are going to a wedding Saturday. Time for someone to put on his dancing shoes, me thinks.

8. Organic foods
   I wish I could afford to buy everything organic because I totally would. I am very much against GMOs and since our lovely FDA believes  GMOs don't need to be labeled, organic is my option.
GMOs is genetically modified organisms also know as GE which is genetically engineered.

9. Volcanoes
   I just think they are the coolest thing. I would love to go on one of those tours where a guide takes you to the rim of a volcano.
Wouldn't that be awesome?
Why, yes.
Yes, it would.

10. Staying up late
   I have never been a morning person. I have never had a problem staying up til all hours though.
I always end up dragging ass in the morning because I can not bring myself to go to bed much before midnight. I have to get up at 6 am so I never get much sleep. And since I am not a coffee drinker, I don't have a lot to get me going.


  1. I love eating. And it's always good to have a friend who loves baking. :)

  2. Great list! I also like dancing and would love to buy organic foods. I think I would pass on the volcano.

  3. Angela, There are certain things I try not to make very often.Otherwise I keep eating and eating.

    Belle,No volcano? Well OK, but you don't know what you'd be missing. :)

  4. You have volcanos in Iowa? Wow, how cool is that?
    Okay, that's it for me. I'm going to go out and get me some cookies.

  5. Al, Come to think of it, I used to live in a dormant volcano. Hot Springs, Arkansas. The funny thing was everyone kept saying it was a dead volcano. If it was dead, why was steaming water coming out of the ground there? Something had to be heating that water up.

  6. I love that the pirate skeleton sings Get Down Tonight.
    Be well, Ruth.

  7. Robyn, I dug it out. Now, I need to put the batteries in it. If I remember, I will video it and post it.
