I'm glad there was a space between "reading cookbooks" and "using mortar and pestle" because otherwise I'd think you were grinding up something poisonous to use in a recipe!

Tempest Knight said...

Hehehe! I used to love to watch my dog sleep. He would bark and move in his sleep and I knew he was dreaming of either chasing cats or happy to see his doggie biscuits.

Bubble wrap's my weakness. I have to pop every one, then I take the sheet and twist it to make sure I got 'em all!

Paige Tyler said...

Great list! I love watching our dog dream, too!

I can definitely relate to getting packages--I'm unnaturally excited about mail.

Jennifer McK said...

Um, my best friend's nickname for me?
MySpace Whore.
I don't know WHAT she's talking about.

Robin L. Rotham said...

I can see most of those, but sorting beads and reading cookbooks? (shaking head) You are easily amused, lady.

Debbie Mumford said...

Nice one. I could sit back and sigh with enjoyment! Thanks.

Heather said...

Being a crafter, I imagine you sorting beads is much like me sorting through brads and other assorted embellishments for my cards -- no matter how many you have, you can never have enough. LOL -- Great list!

Bernadette Gardner and Jennifer Colgan said...

Yep, Heather. The bead thing is an obsession. I love to buy tubs of beads and sort them by color and size. I love to find ones that match - I guess maybe it's TMI, but it's sort of a balm to the brain to just veg out in front of a pile of little beads and separate them into tiny containers. It's a Zen thing.
