Ten On Tuesday

Remember those poems you wrote as a kid? The ones where the first letter of each line of the poem spelled out a word? Acrostic is what they are called and I can distinctly remembering writing one of these for my mom on Mother’s Day. Anyway, I had this idea to sort of take the acrostic concept and adapt it for a Ten On Tuesday topic. Today I want to know 10 Words that Describe You and all 10 words need to begin with the first letter of your first name. Ready?

me at age 6. I figure a post like this one definitely deserves a throw back photo

  1. Crafty. From the time I was a little girl I have always wanted to make something.
  2. Cute. I’m 50 but I’m still holdling on to this one with all my might.
  3. Courteous. Polite to a fault, some might say.
  4. Caring. Especially when it comes to my family and friends.
  5. Competent. 30 years doing the same job will get you this one.
  6. Complex. I’m a woman, after all.
  7. Confident. Mostly. Definitely about work and leadership opportunities. Not always about my appearance but I’m a work in progress.
  8. Cheerful. Almost always. It comes from living with the happiest guy in the world, it just sort of rubs off.
  9. Content. It’s the secret to a happy life and I embrace this wholeheartedly.
  10. Cool. I do drive a Mustang convertible, you know.

I had Dale help me with this list because otherwise I’d also have to include the word conceited. And, just as note, Dale thought this was a pretty clever topic. I crack myself up. Okay, okay, I’ll cut it out. bwahahahahahaha.

    I can’t even think of 10 words that start with K! Except Knitting, of course. And since I do that so much maybe that’s all I need…

    Oh my, a tough one for me. I haven’t come up with ten, but here is a start:

    1. I’m a Virgo
    2. Veggie lover – not vegetarian, but I do love my veggies.
    3. Voracious appetite – not just for food (though, of course, that’s included), but also reading, exploring, learning, etc.
    4. Vino drinker – oh yeah!
    5. Veranda lounger. My grandmother always called her porch a veranda…I loved lounging there in the morning with coffee and in the afternoon with a book and cool beverage.

    V is a tough letter!

    You truly are clever and commendable when it comes to topics, blogging, and art. You are a consummate friend, truly caring and considerate. Thank you for being a friend. xo

    You almost look the same now as you did when you were six! Except your teeth are better now 😉

  5. Jo says

    Oh boy, I am struggling with “j”. This was not as much of a blog post as an assignment lol.

    Think I’ll go with G (since V has already been done ;->) — and, like a good cataloger, they’re in alphabetical order…

    Gabby — yup. I admit it; it’s hard to shut me up sometimes.
    Generous — sometimes too much ;-> No is a hard word!
    Giddy — What can I say? I get emotional ;->
    Glittery — Did someone say glitter? Where?
    Gnarly — I met my husband in the 1980s while rock climbing. Did I say it was the 80s?
    Goofball — that’s a no brainer! I got it from my mom – when the laugh turns uncontrollable!!
    Graceful — all those years of dance lessons, you know…yah, maybe not so much…
    Gracious — sometimes with my teeth gritted ;->
    Graphic — (NOT graphical! ;->) Close as I could get to crafty…
    Gutsy — I’m always willing to try something new!

    Great list! I gave up on this prompt the second I saw it; K was just too hard.

    I hear ya on living with a cheerful guy — it DOES rub off!

    It’s simple – every Tuesday pick up 10 pieces of litter and chunk them in the trash or toss them into a recycling bin. Pick up 10 at a time, 2 at a time or go the extra mile and pick up even more. In fact, don’t feel limited to just pick up on Tuesday!
