Cara passed me the letter L. Thanks, Cara. The way this meme works is that you get a letter from someone and then you have to list ten things or themes in your life that begin with that letter. Let me know in the comments if you would like a letter.
Laundry. One of my favorite chores. While it is a chore, I would much, much rather do laundry than most any other household chore you or I could think of. (However, if this were 1907, rather than 2007, I'm sure I would have a significantly different opinion.) Clothes go into the washer in a smelly, dirty, wrinkled state and come out of the dryer or off the line smelling sweet and ready to be used. If we didn't do laundry, I would have to shop for clothes and that is a chore.
Lists. Without lists, I am a very befuddled individual. With a list, I have a plan and I know what I have to do next without spending a lot of brain cells trying to remember. I miss my memory.
Liatris. (also know as Indian gayfeather) I plan to plant liatris in a yet to be dug garden this coming summer. The flowers last a long time and there are some varieties that grow taller than I measure.
Library. I have not yet visited the local library since we've moved. It is a small one but it gets a reasonable amount of publicity in the local weekly paper. Now I'm curious and will have to put a visit to the library on my to-do list.
Lost. On October 12, G.G. (aka Grumpy) left the house with her siblings in the morning and she hasn't returned home yet. We've posted flyers, searched the woods and roads, and called neighbors and area pet shelters. No one has seen her. We have found nice people though. There is another much larger Siamese cat about 4 or 5 miles from our house that I've seen due to the thoughtful calls of strangers responding to the flyers.
Lemon. A favorite flavor of mine in hard candies, sauces for chicken scallopini with lemons and capers as well as steak carppachio. My Grandpa Ted, a tall and silent Norwegian, liked lemon sandwich cookies.
L. My middle name starts with that letter and it is a very popular name (middle or first) of the mates of my husband's brothers and cousins. Interesting.
Learning. I hope to never stop learning. My most recent learning experience is teaching myself to hold the yarn in my left hand (Continental style) and I'm still working on learning it. Holding the yarn in the left hand looks faster and I need all the speed I can muster. The placement of the yarn in my fingers seems to be the current challenge so I achieve the correct tension.
Lights. We are still in the process of replacing lighting fixtures in the house. Here's a close up of the new one hanging in the foyer. Next up for replacement are the kitchen and dining area lights. We take the old fixtures to our town garbage drop-off and there is usually someone who would like them so they are recycled.
Love. I am glad, wonderously glad, to have love in my life.
