The picture that started it all.
Lemon Cornmeal Cake, Hot Cross Buns and Key Lime Cupcakes.
I felt that the world needed to see these.
So I began blogging.
Sweet Cory of Pink Dogwood Blossom tagged me ages ago, and now that I'm finally off of pain killers, I thought I'd play along.
Seven Random Things About Me.
Have you any idea how difficult this will be, since I've told you everything already? You already know way too much.
I'm sweetening the pot by adding some random photos as well.
Random Fact #1
I have a love/hate relationship with blogging.
I LOVE blogging, love meeting new friends, love love love.
Hate that I don't have the time to reply to everyone.
Hate that I don't have the time to meet everyone.
Hate that I don't have time to read all the blogs I want to.
My rear would be permanently fused to my chair.
I've heard that really happens.

The hallway leading to the upstairs bedroom.
Ya'll have never been upstairs before!
Random Fact #2
I fear death.
The process of dying, more than the afterlife.
The thought of my corpse freaks me out to no end.
I don't do pain well, as you've come to realize this past month.
Random Photo #3
A sneak peak of my upstairs bedroom.
By the time I paint the headboard (bought paint 4 years ago) perhaps it will be stylish again.
Random Fact #3
I know every word, every vocal inflection, of every Beatle song.
Random Photo #4
My almost warped antique floor rug loom.
I think I'm going to REALLY enjoy this.
Or go mad in the process.
Random Fact #4
I've never tasted the following foods:
Beer, ketchup, mustard, salami, and all fish and shellfish.
Please don't tell me what I'm missing.
I didn't eat mayonnaise until I was 30.
Didn't eat salad dressing until I was in my 20's.
I'm weird...but then you already knew that.

My current library books.
So interesting, ain't it?
Speaking of 'ain't'
Random Fact #5...
I'm a grammar snob.
Please don't get me wrong. I make a TON of mistakes. I'm sure I've made my share of people cringe when they read this blog. I'm sure that previous sentence alone had many grammatical errors. I have to think, and think hard before I say 'I'm going to go lie down', and I still sweat when I need to use an apostrophe to denote possession.
My pet peeves?
Using 'them' when you should use 'those',
When I hear someone say 'I ain't got none of them'....
it's like fingernails on a chalkboard.

The last of my winter goals
See Benjamin Franklin perusing them?
Random Fact #6
I adore Benjamin Franklin.
Read everything I can about him.
Have his 13 Virtues printed out.

Scarlett's reaction to Random Fact #7
Random Fact #7
Upon moving to the country in 1988, I purchased 25 baby chickens to raise for meat. At this point in my life, I'd never even cut a whole chicken up before, let alone raise one in my backyard and eat it.
They all lived.
They all died.
They all stayed in my freezer for two years.
I couldn't bring myself to eat them.
Please remind me about this when I announce that I might be doing this again in April.
Thank you very much.
