Random Things

A blogging friend Lisa did a post about random things and I thought it was fun, so I decided to do one too.

I don't know how many random things I have rolling around in this brain of mine but here goes....

1. My friend Jane says that I have a "trivial mind."  I remember trivial facts that now one else cares about.

2. I wonder why people have standards for others to uphold, that they don't require of themselves.

3. Three of my daughters wear a bigger shoe size than me.  The one who doesn't is 9 years old.

4. My spiritual gift is discernment.  I think that is a tough one, I'd rather have the gift of  Mercy.

5. I am two years older than Tim.

6.  I used to follow the British Royal family very closely during the Diana years.  

7. I am largely self taught.  

8. Many people over the years have thought I trained for being a nurse or at least went to college.

9.  I didn't go to college.

10.  I went to a 2 year Bible School where I met my husband.

11.  Tim and I trained to be linguists.  We have the skills to take an unwritten language and develop an alphabet for that language.

12.  I always wanted to be a wife and mother.

13.  This is going to be a painting and refreshing year for our house!

14. I am addicted to Coca-Cola.

15. I recently have been on a reading tear!  I have read 5 books in the last 4 weeks!

16.  I have great online friends and count them as some of my dearest friends.

17.  I am a big Chick-fil-A fan and am so happy that one opened up in our area!

18.  I love history.

19.  I made a video and posted it on my Facebook page yesterday.  Of me talking.  If I could figure out how to get it posted on my blog I would post it for you.  Isn't that weird?  A few years ago I would never have done that!

20.  After 24 years of marriage, I love my husband now more than ever!

21. My kids are kind of okay too.  :)


22.  I am the only daughter in my family.  I always wanted a sister, but God gave me 4 daughters instead!


23.  My sons are bookends - 16 years apart with 4 sisters in between them!


24.  I am not a big pet person, but we have 3 horses, 2 dogs, 1 cat and 1 chicken!


25.  I want more chickens.


Well, there you have it for now.  My brain was full of randomness until I said I was going to write it down - then it flew away!  I have to head out to drop Emily at the store and go by the bank. 


Have a wonderful day!

  4. Oh I've been seeing these and have considered trying it, too.

    Lots of interesting things going on in that brain of yours. I admire anyone who has been trained in linguistics. I took one course lasting a semester and found it challenging to say the least. I was finally able to translate a book written in a Maine Indian language about a beaver. ;>

  5. Okay, Deanna, I rest my case! Here you are getting soooooo much accomplished every day...and then you tell me that you read FIVE books this month!
    I need to come and follow you around and see how you do it! :-D

    Your admiring friend,
    Cheryl

  7. That was fun to read your fascinating random list.
    I like your Bible School training with languages.

  8. P.S. (I got carried away with the five-books-in-one-month thing) I agree with you about the value of internet friends...real people...real bonds...we just have not met face to face (yet)!

  9. I love this idea... but I can see how it would be hard. You did a great job. I now feel as if I know enough about you to welcome you to a friendly game of trivia pursuit. Of course, I want to play teams and you are on mine!!

    Blessings, Debbie

  10. I can relate with several items on your list...I always wonder, too, why it's so easy to have a set of rules for self and one for others, I keep trying to quit drinking pop-I like Pepsi and Coke- , I would love to have the gift of kindness, I loved Diana, Chick-Fil-A is awesome, I've posted videos from Youtube to my blog-it's been awhile-I think what I did was copy the link and paste and then unlink it, so it's not highlighted in your post as you are writing it and then it showed up on my post..try previewing your post. And try googling how to post Youtube videos. I think that's what I did. Don't know if any of that will help you or not!
