Facts n' Foibles

As my friend Anne recently pointed out, some Facebookers have been sharing little-known things about themselves on line.   I've had fun playing along (in my mind -- NOT on FB!), and thought it might be a lark to share a baker's dozen here, this first day of 2014.

In no particular order, here are a few of my own facts n' foibles ...

~ ~ ~

No matter how cold the room, I can't sleep without one foot sticking out from under the bedcovers

I do most everything with my left hand - unless strength or sports is concerned.  Then I'm right-handed

Speaking of sports, don't choose me for your team .... I'm a total klutz

Because of that, I don't particularly enjoy dancing

I've always been partial to odd numbers.   Recently I (inadvertently) drove our catering coordinator nuts by removing one glass from every other row of her perfectly-aligned goblets

In spite of having flown most all my life (without incident, thank God!) I'm a white-knuckle passenger

Conversely, I love being on a ship when the seas grow rough!

The characteristic I most value in others is Sincerity

I don't consider myself superstitious, but have a real aversion to the number '6'

Knee-deep, crunchy snowbanks and raw sugar-cookie dough are two of my 'right-now' favorite things

I'm not fond of 'bling', jewelry, roses 
... or fruit

In my 13th year, 'The Triumph of Janis Babson' had a profound effect on me.  So much so, I believed myself to have leukemia - but didn't tell my parents for several (miserable) months!

A confirmed 'morning person', I'm amazed and delighted most every day by the sunrise ... yet I'm sometimes prone to melancholy watching the sun set

Happy New Year !!!

As always .... hugs from Phoenix!
