Quirky Meme

I’ve been tagged by both Jumping in Puddles and Rising Rainbow with a virus. It’s a meme that says I’m supposed to post 6 little known or secret or quirky things about myself and to link to the person who infected me (see above).

1) To get to sleep I sometimes have to keep telling myself: all is well, all is unfolding as it should

2) When I’m deep in writing a book, I NEED chocolate (dark) and coffee.

3) My arms are so long that even tall sizes don’t always fit—which is one reason I took up knitting and sewing.

4) When I’m nervous I talk very fast.

5) At times in my adult life I’ve: slept with stuffed animals and carried polished stones in my purse and I still often wear butterfly jewelry that to me signifies strength and hope and successful change.

6) Playing spider solitaire on the computer or do Suduko on paper often helps when I’m upset or stuck on how to handle a problem.

I know I’m supposed to tag 6 people but that’s outside my comfort zone so I’ll just invite everyone who wants to play—or just ask and I’ll “officially” tag you!

Sending blessings and safe and gentle ((((((hugs))))))),

Add me to the list of sleeping with a stuffed animal!

And spider solitaire is good.

Go here for some free online games.

I can especially relate to numbers 1, 4, and the butterfly symbol. :)

Good energy to you!

Rising Rainbow, I'm always grateful when I discover stores that do carry tall sizes but some things I'm just always going to need to be able to make myself...

Keepers, I suspect lots of adults at times sleep with stuffed animals whether they are survivors or not.

Kahless, LOL and making signs to ward off the evil eye! More games??? Must resist temptation. Must resist.....oh, heck (starts to type url into the address line...)

Gypsy Heart, There's just something about that butterfly image, isn't there?

My arms are very long as well. And I have a really long torso. Couldn't wear those body suit things that were popular in the '70's because they would ride up. Ouch! Have slept with the stuffed animal, too! I AM going to get to this meme...it may just have to be after Friday's blog carnival.

And I thought I needed to hide when I do #6 so people wouldn't wonder about me! Nice to know I'm not the only one.

Marj, Oh, yes! I remember those bodysuits--and I couldn't wear them either for exactly the same reason!

Jumping in Puddles, You're welcome.

Angel, Welcome! Hey, brain games are good for us--all the experts say so. :-)
