A is for apple crisp, which my my wonderful husband bakes every Friday night. It's our special treat.
B is for baking, a hobby that our whole family enjoys. Recently my son and I baked these chocolate mint cookies.
C is for cats. I am a cat person.
D is for dyeing. I went to a tie-dyeing party recently and decorated onesies to use in the future as baby gifts.
E is for England, the country I dream of visiting someday.
F is for fleece, which I recently used to make a fringed pillow cover. I have been kind of domestic lately, what with the baking and the dyeing and the pillow covering.
G is for The Grapes of Wrath. This is the last book I read.
H is for hair. I like trying new ways to style my long hair.
I is for ice cream. Lately I've been beating the heat by eating vanilla ice cream topped with honey, almonds, and shredded coconut.
J is for Jane Eyre, a book I could read over and over again.
K is for Kung Fu. My husband is a second degree black belt and our son is a purple belt. I just watch. :)
L is for Libraries. Visiting libraries is like heaven to me, because I love books so much!
M is for Moscow Stories by Loren Graham. I'm reading this book right now.
N is for Novosibirsk, the Russian city where I was an exchange student in high school.
O is for the Ob' River, which flows through Novosibirsk.
P is for Poetry. I used to write poetry and short fiction, and I'm thinking about taking up creative writing once more.
Q is for quiet. I prefer peace and quiet over noise and zaniness.
R is for red, my favorite color.
S is for Saint Petersburg, the Russian city where I was an exchange student in college (university).
T is for tea. Happy T Day! Today I tried another layered beverage. With rose hip-hibiscus herbal tea on top and lemonade on the bottom, the layering in this iced drink is more subtle than my in my last one. It's delicious, though! I like it much better than the cranberry juice/Gatorade combo. For more beverage related posts, click over to the Altered Book Lover blog.
U is for Ulnar Drift, an arthritic condition that affects my left hand. I am right-handed, so it doesn't affect me too much, but it is starting to make beading and embroidery harder for me.
V is for The Vicar of Dibley, the British comedy that can always cheer me up when I'm feeling down.
W is for Wilna Furstenberg. I love watching her artsy scrapbooking videos on YouTube. She has a great sense of humor, too.
X is for eXercise. Almost every day I do 30 minutes of fast walking, plus assorted stretches.
Y for Yellow. My dream car is a convertible yellow Volkswagen Beetle. Maybe someday...
Z is for zoo. I love visiting zoos and photographing the animals. These photos usually make for fun scrapbook pages.
I hope you found my A-Z list interesting. Maybe you discovered something that you and I have in common. If so, I'd love to hear about it!
