The Great Book of Lists: Chapter 4.0- Hobbies


The Great Book of Lists: Chapter 4.0- Hobbies

  • Writing- whether it’s a blog post or story or random notes
  • Music- listening to it, practicing piano–music is always present in my life
  • Photography- learning to use my new camera…or just falling back on my trusty iPhone!
  • Antique and Thrift Store Shopping- doing more browsing than actual shopping
  • Crocheting- rediscovering an old hobby from years ago
  • Reading- anything and everything!

What are your favorite hobbies?

The Great Book of Lists: Chapter 3.2 Acts of Love/ Chapter 3.3 Ways to Celebrate

This will be a combination of 2 lists for Chapter 3 of The Great Book of Lists.

Chapter 3.2- Acts of Love

  • Texts- whether to say “I love you” or just say “Hey, I’m thinking of you and care”
  • I will pick up little gifts that remind me of that person- something they like or a private joke we share
  • Along the same line, I will send them pictures that will make them smile.
  • A hug- HUGE for me because I’m not the huggy type
  • A simple “I love you”

Chapter 3.3- Ways to Celebrate

  • Gather my kids around for family time
  • Go out to eat with my husband
  • Have a girls’ night out
  • Take time for myself- to read, listen to music, write and take photos

What are some ways you show your love?

And how do you celebrate the great things in your life?

Thanks for stopping by!


The Great Book of Lists: Chapter 3.1- A Party of Choice

 I was thinking we could do a list of the people we’d like to meet throughout history. Anyone dead or alive. Relative, movie star, singer, etc. 

This very special gathering takes place in a beautifully lit backyard, similar to the Zeke and Camille Braverman’s (Parenthood)  on a warm spring night.

My guests would include:

  • My grandparents
  • John Lennon
  • Harper Lee
  • Harry Connick, Jr.
  • Audrey Hepburn
  • Jane Austen
  • Katharine Hepburn
  • Harrison Ford

The Great Book of Lists: Chapter 3.0- Your Favorite Dishes

So this week is about food, but not any kind of food. We’ll be focusing on the food you enjoy cooking the most. Be it a gourmet dish, a simple fruit salade or a pizza, nothing’s too fancy nor too simple to enter our lists, as long as it brings joy. You can even share a recipe if you like 🙂

I’m not much of a cook…….I really don’t like it at all…… so here’s my list-

  • Taco Salad
  • Pasta Salad
  • Snickerdoodles
  • Pineapple Upside Down Cake
  • Scrambled Eggs

As you can imagine, it’s fun eating at my house. 🙂
