Joey from Joeyfully Stated.com has nominated me to take part in the Love – Hate Challenge. You should check out her blog, it’s great!
Accepting this challenge means that I am to write a list of 10 things I love, 10 things I hate, and then choose 10 nominees who will hopefully accept this challenge (if not, I do understand). For me, I can easily list 10 things that I love, but since I don’t believe in hating, that will be a real challenge for me.
10 things that I love…
1. My family and friends
2. Being a grandmother
3. That morning cup of coffee
4. Carnations (especially green ones)
6. The beach
7. The smell of lilacs (brings back memories of the house I grew up in)
8. Cleaning (call me crazy but I love making things look neat and clean).
9. Lifetime Movie Network : )
10. Hot baths
10 things that I hate…
1. Drunk drivers!!!
2. Thunder and Lightning
4. Plugging in anything electrical.
5. Long lines for the ladies room.
6. That my second toe on each foot is much too long.
7. When anyone tries to touch my belly button.
8. That I don’t have the same body that I had when I was in my 20’s.
9. That my mom and dad are no longer alive..RIP
10. That I live so far away from some of my children and grandchildren (maybe not for long though).
My 10 nominees…
Thank you Gail for nominating me, I will post my list in the morning, it’s 11:05pm, Im in bed sick 😦
See Im so sick I am calling you the wrong name..l sorry Cheryl!
I’ve been called worse Kim..lol Feel better soon!
Thank you! Its gone from a head cold to my chest, blah! Its only the second week of winter too, so I am not impressed!
Just relax and let this cold take it’s course…wishing for you a speedy recovery!
Thanks Cheryl, as soon as the cough goes I’ll be bouncing back!
Great lists. You must tell us more about your (possible) move. Lilac was a favorite of my mother’s. Yes, I understand your attitude towards cleaning. I think I’d have listed spiders eight times, once for each leg. Thank you for also having toe issues. 🙂
Speaking of spiders…last night I am in bed watching tv and I notice my cat move from the end of the bed where she was sleeping, up to where the pillows were on the other side of my bed. She sat there just staring. I am watching her watch the pillows for a few minutes. Then I decide to move the pillow and that’s when I saw it!! A nasty black hairy spider. Of course I screamed as I threw the pillow that the spider was on onto the floor and killed it. I shiver every time I think of that spider on my bed!! Of course I gave my cat a treat for her part in finding the spider.
An example of why cats are so valuable. Misha patrols each evening. She checks corners, dark places, and beneath furniture looking for bugs of any kind. A spider on my bed? I’d be in the ICU.
I’m surprised I didn’t end up in the ICQ
Oh how I love the beach and long hot baths… both are so peaceful and soothing. i agree with your long lines at washrooms… wouldn’t have thought of it but isn’t it annoying when the men just walk in? Have a good day, Cheryl
I remember reading a newspaper article a few years ago where a woman had to use the restroom very badly. She tried waiting in the long line for the ladies restroom. She couldn’t wait anymore so she used the men’s restroom. This got her arrested.
That is just nuts.
Great lists! Thanks for playing!
I agree, those green carnations are so cheerful! 🙂
Thanks for including me. It was fun! Carnations are my favorite flower and green is my favorite color.

The longer second toe is supposed to mean you’re a better lover! Love it! lol
Good thing I didn’t go through with the plastic surgery on the toes to make them smaller then 🙂
See! Good thing! Lol
