Shelly, at This Eclectic Life, tagged me with a meme a bit ago and I said I like a challenge. I then simply ran out of time and energy (probably due to all the walking to the barn I have to do.)

She asked us to “pick three things that enrapture, consume, fascinate, or otherwise enliven you more than blogging. Then write a few lines about each to explain what the nonblog activity does for you, why and how.”

The rules:

  • 1. After your intro, copy/paste this line and the rules below it: The originator wants to see how far it goes so please keep his link intact: http://rileycentral.net
  • 2. Encourage people to post with the incentive of a link by including those who have passed it along here: (Your link here and so on . . .)
  • 3. Visit at least 3 on the list who’ve written and passed this meme. Leave them a comment.

Here we go:

  • My favorite thing is time with my family. Whether its hanging out with my husband or the kids. We love to hang out. Just sitting around talking, challenging each other and sharing life. Sometimes we chase the little ones around, take pictures of them on the trampoline or sliding or playing tag. Sometimes we just sit to visit. Other times there are fun games of horseshoes or badminton. There is always laughter and dinner, because we are a funny bunch who are always hungry. I cherish those times. They do so much to keep me sane.
  • I love reading. It feeds my mind. As a kid packing for vacation meant did I have enough brown grocery bags full of books? I still went out and fished, hiked, and swam. But a tremendous amount of time was spent reading books. I don’t have has much time to read anymore. But when I delve into a book, good luck to any who try to get me out until I am done with it.
  • Being crafty or creative. I admit I can be very attention deficit about crafts, unless they are short term projects. I can’t tell you how many things I have going that are “about halfway”. But crocheting, taking pictures, sewing and anything involving a glue gun really wraps up my mind and makes it sing like a bird. I rarely keep anything for myself (except the pictures which I love to look through again and again), I love the idea that I invested love and imagination in something and that someone else will have it to remind them that I am thinking about them.

Like Shelly, I’m not tagging a ton of people. I’ll tag three and let it be.
