Thursday Thirteen...

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things I like to do.

1…. I love to read! Mystery novels are at the top of my list. However, I love theology books too. Actually, almost any type of book I like to read.

2.... I love a good laugh! Even if it is on me! But there really isn't anything else that tops a full all out laugh which brings tears to one's eyes.

3.... Travel. Let's go! I like to fly because of the time factor but I really love to travel by car. I like taking the back roads to see all the scenery. When I was growing up in Germany our family would take drives on the weekends just to look at the scenery. When we came back to the states we continued it.

4.... I love really great movies. Especially the ones on the BIG screen! So a movie like Pride and Prejudice would be perfect to watch on the big screen. (That's for YOU, Pilot) Lol!

5.... Counted-cross stitching I love to do, however, it has been several years since I've actually done one. I may have to remedy that. At least I could try a small one again just to see if my eyes will allow me the pleasure.

6.... Going out to eat is another favorite. Anything to get out of having to do dishes! I used to love cooking but not so much anymore.

7.... I've discovered I love blogging! Who would have ever thought? Not me! And, I actually discovered I really like figuring out what to say "behind it all" to make it "show up front" just perfect. When I get in a real bind I email my nephew who graciously comes to my rescue.

8.... Hubby and I discovered we love watching the tv show "24." From January to the end of February we watched 4 seasons of it to catch up to this current season! Now, before you go thinking that all we do is sit in front of the tv, I will say, in our defense, that was when I was so sick with the whooping cough. Truly.

9.... I love to talk on the phone with Pilot. It's the next best thing to actually getting to spend time in person. :)

10.... Rearranging my furniture is something else I like to do. Thankfully, after I've completed the deed, dh likes it.

11.... I love to play games. Card games, board games....Canasta is one of my favorite card games. Also, our family is known for our wild and crazy cutthroat Parcheesi games. Also, when the extended family gets together we are a big enough group to play Balderdash/Beyond Balderdash which is a riot! There is always tons of laughter when we begin that game!

12....I love to pray. When I'm in the car by myself it's a perfect time to spend praying. While I'm cleaning or making the bed etc, I find time to pray. Some of you may remember I've mentioned when I am using a recipe from someone I know, I pray for their family while I prepare that dish. I have a few close friends I pray with regularly.

13.... I love to study my Bible.

loved reading this :) We have a lot in common. I love books (all kinds, including whodunits and theology), cross stitch (I only do it in the summer now when I can use natural light - my eyes aren't so good anymore either!),

Jane Austen (I went to see P&P in January and it was wonderful!)

eating out (though we do it rather seldom)and having kids put me right of cooking I'm sad to say.

Don't get me talking about travel. I love it. My dad used to say that I was born with itchy feet (I'm not keen on being confined to a car - I like meeting people on route so planes and trains are best for me and be warned - meeting up with friends (including online ones) - is my heaven on earth!)

I'm not so good at laughigng at myself (I take myself too seriously I'm afraid) so send the anointing this way please - and as you do so be blessed abundantly

My favorite time to pray is in my car. I'll see something and thank God for it and just talk to Him as if He is in the seat next to me.

He is in the seat next to me. Isn't that so cool!

Great list!

Lovely positive list. You sound like a happy person. My TT is up!

Thank you for sharing. I wish you lived down the street. I too enjoy movies on the big screen. Melinda e

TNChick said...

Several of those are true for me too.... 2, 3, 4, 7 and a few more! My 13 is up.

Gayla said...

Here's what we have in common, sistah:

2,3,4,5,6,7,8,11 (and of course 12,13) Isn't that neat? I'd probably love talking to Pilot on the phone, too, if I knew him. ;)

About 24 - I discovered season one a few years back when I was at Blockbuster and there was NOTHING to rent. I picked up disc one, read the back and thought, hmmmmm that might be good. We were HOOKED! We (all 3 of us) marathon watched the whole season that weekend, staying up till 1 and 2 in the morning - we were riveted!

Love that show!

Roger is now hooked on That 70's Show!

Pilot Mom said...

So basically we are just fraternal twins Gayla! I knew it! That must be why we are always on the same page...what do you think? ;)

Gayla said...


I was just giggling reading your descriptions b/c I could have written the same things myself.

HeyJules said...

Claire, when we end up meeting face to face you and I are getting two other people to sit down and we are going to canasta them right into the ground!

Pilot Mom said...

You got it, Girl!!! My partner, Lana, would love to be in on it and if Gayla is here she can play too!!!

Melanie said...

I really love your list! I'm a little behind on catching up on this... The thing about reactivated EBV - when it zaps you - you're down for the count!
