ABC of me

Many thanks to Choclette at Chocolate Log Blog for passing on the ABC (Awesome Blog Content) Award to me.  This means I now have to think of 26 words that mean something to me, one for each letter of the alphabet.

A - Art.  One day I will have time to develop my skills, for now I appreciate the skill of others.
B - Baking.  I've been baking since I was a little girl and still love it.
C - Create.  Making things makes me happy.
D - Digital Scrapbooking.  I love the immediacy and flexibility of scrapping my photographs with digitial kits.
E - Earrings.  I have many pairs.
F -Farm.  Where I live.
G -Garden. A place to potter around, my garden has changed purpose many times.
H - Home.  I love my home and like to spend as much time here as possible.
I - Images.  I love words, but I love images more.
J - Joni Mitchell.  My favourite musician.
K - Kitchen.  Somewhere I like to spend my time.
L -Laugh.  I can usually find the funny side of any situation, I love to laugh.
M - Massage.  I'm a bit of a spa junkie.
N -Non-judgemental.  I strive to be non-judgemental, it's not easy.
O -Optimistic.  Always look on the bright side of life.
P -Parents. There is my Mother and Mother-in-law and these are also my roles.
Q - QI.  Makes me laugh so much.
R - Relax.  Sometimes I find it hard to relax (see M).
S - Saxophone.  My husband plays the saxophone and I hear it every day.
T - Twitter - I know, I spend far too much time on Twitter.
U - University. I loved my time  studying at university and now work at one.
V - Vote.  I was very affected by 'Shoulder to Shoulder' the suffragette TV series and always vote.
W -Wine. No explanation needed.
X - Xylophone. I used to play a little bit of xylophone when I was at school.
Y - You!  My blog would be nothing with YOU my readers. Thanks.
Z -Zabaglione. Totally delicious.

Now I have to nominate some other bloggers for the ABC award.  I've decided to nominate three bloggers:

Please feel free to join in!

Nice one Janice, funny how you can see similarities when you look at peoples lists and identify with some of the same things.

Thanks for the vote Janice! Lovely to know more about you. I'm a little shy and I'm not sure if I can come up with something for each letter but I will try! Got a super busy week ahead so may not be that soon!

Oh great post Janice. I had the same thought as Sue - lots there in common, including working at a University.
