- knit up my stash while becoming a Master Knitter.
- Figure out my purpose in life.
- After a fantastic night's sleep; wake up feeling energized and pain free (this only has to happen once).
- Learn to love ladybugs.
- Understand and practice patience - especially with myself.
- Take ballroom dancing lessons with Ed.
- Lose my fear of dying.
Seven Things I cannot do:
- Pass up good freaking yarn or most things yarn/knitting related.
- Go a day without hugging/cuddling/touching Ed or Nick.
- Remember things the way I used to.
- Not worry or anguish about all the suffering in the world.
- Be more objective and dispassionate about life.
- Go to bed with the dishes undone and the kitchen messy.
Seven Things that attract me to my mate:
- Ed's unconditional and non-judgemental nature and his tremendous ability and capacity for love.
- His deep spirituality - Ed learned to read from the Bible and he wears his spirituality like a second skin.
- Ed does the laundry, he irons, he cleans the toilet...and he is an excellent cook!
- How protective, caring and patient he is.
- His sense of humour and his big, hearty laugh. We have a deal that we will make each other laugh every day(it is not a challenge we find too difficult).
- Ed's intellect, his intelligence and his social conscience.
- His level of affection and passion.
Seven Books I love:
- Gone To Soldiers by Marge Piercy (also Braided Lives and Summer People and a few others; she is a phenomenal writer.)
- The Alphabet Series by Sue Grafton
- The Seven Story Mountain by Thomas Merton (actually anything by Thomas Merton. This book is his first and reading it is inspirational.)
- The Road Less Travelled by Scott Peck (I read this when I was in a period of tremendous flux in my late twenties and it was life changing. His concepts of love and courage are phenomenal.)
- The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency Series by Alexander McCall Smith
- "...And Ladies of the Club"by Helen Hoover Santmyer (her first book published I believe when she was in her eighties it is a multigenerational saga about the lives of women brought together through a book club. Amazing read.)
- Deafeningby Frances Itani (a beautiful love story set in Belleville, Ontario, Canada during the first World War.)
Seven Things I say:
- "F---!!! "
- "I love you... spuba, guumba, sweet pea, darlin, pookster etc.... "
- "I'm sorry "
- "Computah says NO!" (a la Little Britain, one of the best comedies out there!)
- "Crap or Crappola"
- "Criminy Jickets!"
- "Right On!"
Seven Movies I've Loved:
- Bridget Jones (1 & 2) (Funny and Colin Firth is such a hunk!)
- Legally Blonde (1 & 2) (I love a good chick flickand a few laughs at the same time.)
- Schlinder's List (hard to believe what human beings can and continue to do to one another - makes me want to cry) see also Hotel Rwanda
- Boys Don't Cry (ditto)
- Before Sunrise, Before Sunset (talk about an amazing love story and some serious on screen chemistry - oh so good)
- Elf (Will Ferrell is irreverently funny and silly in this movie)
- Save the Last Dance (feel good chick flick, hard issues about interracial relationships within the context of tragedy and adolescent angst - could watch it again and again)
