I've been tagged!

Mary, from Mary's Treasured Memories has tagged me for this Meme. Mary is one of those people you can tell is a sweetheart from her blog. When you have time, stop over and visit her! This meme is full of seven things. Here's my seven:

4. work less, volunteer more
5. finish the scrapbooks from my kids youth
6. visit the Grand Canyon and Big Sur
7. Visit Israel

Seven Things I Can Do:
1. Cook

7. take care of people

I enjoyed your meme and learning more about you. You sure did a good job with this one.

Glad you enjoyed the tour of the apple orchard. We did have a lot of fun and even ate an apple while we were there by permission of the owner.

Blessings for a great week. How is the inspection going? Have they left yet?

I enjoyed reading your seven things! I read that you like chili. I could eat chili everyday! Ha! Ha!

Someone tagged me for seven things. This stuff taxes my brain! UGH! Ha! Ha!

Sandra said...

That was so much fun to read Mari :)

Cheri said...

That was a fun one to read. At first I thought it said you could touch your tongue to your nose- I was pretty impressed there for abit!

Pennies In My Pocket said...

OK, that was fun! I think everyone should say "I love you" often! :-) That's my favorite one.


Pat said...

These are so much fun to read...of course I'll probably put this on my blog in the not to distant future!

Bless you!

Another fun meme, Mari! We could definitely eat together anytime because your favorites all sound great to me! You seriously want to clean your house from top to bottom before you die?!? You can come to my house if you enjoy cleaning that much!
