Favorite S Things

I'm doing this for Miz Jeanne. The basic idea: leave a comment on this post requesting a letter and I’ll assign you one. Then you write about 10 things you love that begin with your assigned letter. Post it on your blog and when people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain continues on.

1. Seafood, I love it, except for cockles, scallops, and oysters. I can eat a couple of pounds of mussels all by myself.

2. Soup. I love soup! I'm not so fond of cream soups but a good hearty broth with loads of veggies and a little meat is some kind of good! I think homemade chicken soup is my favorite.

3. Sean Connery is a HUNK! I don't care if how old he gets, this man's photo should be under the definition of Sexy! He's handsome and his voice is SO awesome!....swoon!

4. Stephen King is my favorite author. I've read everything he's ever written except for the "Gunslinger" series but I'll probably read those some day too. When I read his books I feel like a little kid again; afraid to put my foot out from under the covers for fear something under the bed will grab it!

5. Sisters. I have two younger sisters and I love them dearly. I don't get to see as much of them as I'd like, but life happens.

6. Sunsets. I love sunrises too. The world seems to be at peace when a day is dawning or drawing to a close.

7. Sleep. I never get enough! For years now I've had trouble falling asleep so it's often midnight or later before I finally crash for a few hours. I have to be up early to get Zach off to school and that wakes me up so I don't often go back to bed.

8. Summer. What can I say, I'm a summer child. I can stand too hot a lot better than too cold.

9. Salads. I love almost any kind of salad with almost any kind of vegetable in it. Sometimes I'll also add a boiled egg or two, or chicken or pork. Another thing I love about Summer is being able to go to my garden for fresh tomatoes, onions, and cucumbers to make a salad.

10. Scrabble I've had Scrabble games for as long as I can remember. I even have a small electronic one.

Well, that's it folks, my favorite things that start with S. You're welcome to do this too, just leave me a comment and I'll assign you a letter. It was fun Jeanne!

Good post I enjoyed reading about your letter ~S~

Hi Brenda, This sounds like something I could do, but I won't attempt it until tomorrow. I am just too tired tonight.
I haven't been walking, just no strength, so Dean bought a small treadmill that will fold up, so it can be put out of the way when not used. It is for me of course.
You know those days, everything is tomorrow.
Your list is interesting.
Also, your weather doesn't look good, so it goes away before you get it!!!
This is the last week so hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and all good things in the new year.
Praying for a job for your husband, too. Dean is 84 and hasn't found a job and we need it. At our age we are supposed to have money so they say, but times do not let us keep any.
I really can't complain, we do not want and we can help others who do.
Blessings to you and your family,
Betty G

Oh, I love Summer too!
It may take me a couple of days, but I would like to play along.

I like alot of the same S things as you do. Sean is a hunk, totally agree with that. LOL And I am a summer person also, just wait till January when I really start to whine about the cold and snow. And I could eat a salad everyday and sunrise and sunsets, you can never have too much of them and I so understand the sleep thing. I should be sleeping now but can't fall asleep.

Just Joni said...

I like your S's...and this looks like fun, I'll will be difficult to surpass sunsets and Sean Connery though.

Kellan said...

Great things that start with "S" - I love most all these "S" things too!!!

Have a great Holiday week, Brenda - see you - Kellan

Jeanne said...

Thanks for playing Brenda! I have to agree with you on many of your S's. That Sean Connery is a hunk.

Karen M said...

This sounds like fun. I'm trying to get back to blogging. I've really missed it. Hoping things are starting to settle down a bit. I love your S things. I'm in agreement with you all but the seafood and Stephen King. I've never liked seafood. But Sean Connery, oh yeah!!

Sally said...

Love all your "S's" and especially glad you have sisters. Will you be mine? hahahaha

I'll play if I can do it after the holidays. Please don't give me a hard letter, though, like Z or X. :)
