ten things tuesday...

Ten things that begin with B.

1) Blueberries. When I was little, my sister made me eat rabbit poo by telling me they were blueberries. So, even though they are the super fruit... I just can't stand them.

2) Books. I love books--hard cover, paper back, and e-books.

3) Boxes. I love decorative boxes. And I hoard empty boxes.

4) Beards. A nicely tended beard is handsome.

5) Boots. I struggle to find dress boots to wear. But I love my clumpy winter boots.

6) Beer. Synonymous with college. Every now and then I get a hankering, but I haven't had a beer in more than a decade.

7) Bubbles. When I was a kid I was fascinated with bubbles. Every Easter my sisters and I would get "bubble stuff" and we'd busy ourselves for hours.

8) Balloons. Even though I love balloons, the popping that goes with them sends me into fits. I feel guilty when I release balloons, though I love them as a remembrance.

9) Blogging. I started my blog as a therapy assignment. Dr. Lisa thought it would be good for me to try blogging because I was blocked with journaling. Now it's a daily ritual and I really enjoy thinking about what to post.

10) Bono. Great rocker, humanitarian hero and the coolest cat around.

Love #5 and #7. I have the same relationship with my adorable Herman Munster workboots, which I am finally retiring after several winters. And we always called it "bubble stuff," too!

Ironically, I had beer yesterday for the first time in years. My husband ordered it at a Mexican restaurant and I took a couple of sips of his beer, because my taco just seemed to call out for BEER. I don't think I'll start drinking it again, though.

(And I'm with ya on the balloon thing!)
