some honest scraps

the lovely elisabelle of the beautiful blog on my way passed along some honest scraps. so, here we go, 10 randomly picked scraps that i might or might not have mentioned before..

:: i cannot follow a recipe when i cook. i always always end up adding or leaving out something. and i never make the exact same dish twice.
:: most people seem to think i am a very rational and patient person. i don't think so.
:: i don't really like to talk on the phone. except for that mind-blowing, deep and spontaneous hour-long talk with an old friend when both of you suddenly have the time, the place and the mojo.
:: i like to dress up, but when i finally get a chance, i probably won't be in the mood for it.
:: i am not sick very often, but when i am i feel deeply sorry for myself and crave pity.
:: i used to smoke a pack a day back in my roaring 20s.
:: if it didn't make me so tired and heavy the day after, i would drink so much more wine than i do. i love a glass (or three) to end the day. oh, the wine i will drink when the kids get older and i can claim back the nights and mornings...
:: i had three kids in less than two years. i don't always recommend this. it's pretty intense.
:: i love a good, bloody steak. like in really love. i guess i am carnivore at heart.
:: i used to always get there too early. today i am always late. i am still hoping to one day be on time.

i am passing it one to shokoofeh of a new simple something, aimee of artsyville, and april of picnic: if you want to, please come along. and that goes for everyone else who feels like sharing a few honest scraps.


  1. It's nice getting to know you better... I would have thought you were a rational and patient person too :) ...and the early/late thing is the same for me... still waiting to get it right! :)

  2. In many ways we are birds of a feather! I feel the same way about the phone, and wine, and a good steak. Thanks for letting us get to know you better.

  3. I think I could have written all those scraps, except for the last three. As Lecia says, we must be birds of a feather (I didn't know that expression, isn't it nice?)

  4. I love the picture that illustrates this list... !

  5. Oh... I do understand about wine!
    Feeling the same about early and late: I guess it all changed when I became a mum.
    3 kids in less than 2 years: i cannot even begin to imagine how exhausting that must be.

    It's great to know more about you!


  6. thanks for sharing :-)
    Hally Holidays and GLÆDELIG JUL :-)

  7. Love these scraps! It's so fun to learn more about you! Enjoy your week!

  8. nice to read
    i think you are an emotional person, with the blog you have.... ?

  9. you write so beautifully and i adore these honest scraps! i am far behind on my blogging so i will leave mine here: i'm not a phone person either, i have just the same situation with dressing up that you do, i would much rather draw than cook, and i am a horrible grouch in the morning unless left alone (which rarely happens.)

    and one more honest scrap? i'd love to see more postings of your drawings. i just adored that one you did for weekword long ago.

  10. Thanks for sharing. I enjoy reading more about you. I like the wine part! Boy could we have fun. xo
