7 More Things

Alana gave me the perfect excuse to share seven more things about myself. Let’s call this one, “7 ways I became obnoxiously accomplished”:

  1. I took 8 years of ballet as a child/teen, plus two more years as an adult. That might explain why I’m soooo frustrated with being “fat” recently. I’ve had my body the way I wanted it and used it the way I wanted it for so long….ok, enough psychoanalyzing on the first point!
  2. Three years of piano lessons, to the point where I can read music. Bach Rocks.
  3. Ad naseum art lessons: drawing, painting, even pottery. Drawing is my best. I can only paint in three dimensions if I can do it in pointillism.
  4. Sew, knit, embroider, spin yarn, dye, and cover screens and I know not what else. 😉
  5. Add in one year of Irish Step Dancing lessons and a smidgen of ice skating lessons. I skate backwards better than I do forwards. Still have my really expensive ice skates in the closet with no ice arena within 2 hours drive. Drat!
  6. Enough German to get me lunch and a train ticket.
  7. Is baking perfect chocolate chip cookies one of the finer distinctions of civilization? If so, I am a truly accomplished woman.

Your turn. How accomplished are you?

[All the above is factual, but said in a completely LOL manner.]

    Darn it! You are more accomplished than I am. Do you have a spinning wheel? I went to spinning camp when I was 12 years old and I still wish I had a wheel.

    Alas, I had to sell the wheel and the drum carder during a money drought. 😦 Hubby has promised me a replacement in the future. Plus our apartment was just too full.

    I still have some drop spindles and my hand carders….

    Problem is there never seems to be quite the right recipe for those cookies….

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
