I've Been Tagged!

I've been tagged. How fun is that, I've never been tagged before!

But before I get into that, evidently my husband would like me to make him a 'Scottish Quilt' He might have mentioned it before once or maybe a dozen times, but I didn't realize how serious he was until he went through the trouble of registering for a Blogger profile just so he could leave a comment to remind me. Mmmmm, think there might be something to this?

So anyhow, Sharon at Indigo Threads has tagged me so here goes:

Ok, first The Rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you. OK, done. See above.
2. Put the rules on the blog. Did that too! You are reading them.
3. Write 6 random things about yourself. See the list below.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment.
6. Let the tagger know your entry is up.My 6 Random/Quirky Things About Myself:

Mmmm, this is rather hard because isn't 'Quirky' all the eye of the beholder? I make a stab at it anyhow, and I suppose some of the following even I will admit are a bit 'quirky'!


1.
I don't sleep with a pillow. Actually that's not true, I do sleep with a pillow, but usually my head is underneath the pillow and not on top of it.
2.
I dream every night, but quite often I'm not actually in my dreams. Usually my dreams play out like an art house movie or bizarre television show. Thank goodness I'm not a writer or you'd all really think I was odd.
3.
I love making lists! OK, I like making lists, and I LOVE checking things off my list; be it a to do list, a bucket list, a goals list. Sometimes I do top ten lists; but mostly I leave that to David Letterman.
4.
I believe that hot water and ice are blessings that should never be taken for granted. Really, the daily access to clean, fresh water shouldn't be taken for granted; but I am particularly fond of having the ability to regulate water temperature at will! (if you lived in a tent for a year, you would understand my appreciation!)
5.
I love to read children's books! I read all kinds of books really, but even in my thirties I still enjoy children books especially chapter books. I couldn't wait until my kids were old enough for me to read chapter books to them and now that they are, we have a lot of fun picking books for me to read to them.
6.
I like Dr. Who ~ the british show from BBC Wales. The new one that is, not the old one from years ago. Actually I had no interest in this show until we moved and had no tv for several weeks. All we had was a borrowed first season Dr. Who set of DVDs. After three shows, I was hooked! Who'd a thought! (if you want to take a peek I've added a video below:)




So here are who I am, in turn tagging:

These are all fabulous blogs that I read regularly, I hope you take the time to check them out!

Cheers,

Dionne

Thanks for tagging me! I am going to have to think about quirky things that I do. I drink a lot of Diet Coke. Is that quirky or just unhealthy?:) Tag will be addressed in a couple of days! Happy Thursday!

Thanks for the tag! I've already thought of two things, although I don't know when I'll get around to finishing and posting the list.

I can't imagine not being in my dreams...? That is quirky to me!

I love the new series of Dr Who too. We watched them all on DVD as well.

Like you I am grateful every time I turn on a tap or stand in a shower - many people in the country where I'm currently living don't have access to indoor plumbing and I feel incredibly privileged to have it.
