A Little More Love…

… And a little less Hate.

I was nominated for the Love-Hate Challenge by the sassy and quirky Jolene of Joeyfully Stated. I have always enjoyed her posts and her unique ability to put in some awesome sauce into almost everything she writes about.

The ten things I lurv are –

1. The smell of freshly laundered bedsheets

2. The smell of baking – be it cakes, cookies, anything!

3. The sniff I steal of Mom when she’s just had a bath – her very unique one mixed with Pears soap.

4. Cheese

5. Getting under a dense tree and looking up through the brambles

6. Wind in my hair

7. The first bite into a decadent pastry after a hungry day

8. The blood pumping after a good run/hike

9. Sunrise up in the hills

10.Β Tiny Christmassy trinkets (alsoΒ handmade candles and soaps; oh and lamps!)

…. Yea I know, where is world peace and being kind/supportive. I opted for more personal things which somehow became very “smell” oriented. Smell is, I think, my strongest sense and I often let my nose decide things for me. Dad says I was probably a dog in my earlier life and a friend actuallyΒ asks me when I am insanely happy, “Are you wagging your invisible tail by any chance?”. My answer… I would if I could. And slap people with it. Swish and smack! Nice no? πŸ˜€

Moving on, the things I hate. Now hate is a strong term, so this is probably something that includes the things that annoy me/frustrate me/irritate me as well.

1. Wet socks/wet feet… Argh!! Get them dry! Get them clean! QUICKLY.

2. Tardiness *drumming fingers*

3. Mushrooms – it is a fungus, for God’s sake!

4. Sloppy formatting of any presentation/document/excel sheet

5. Cleaning out drains of the bathroom. I swear I do not shed SO MUCH!

6. Lizards.

7. Beer. That said, I really want to try Apple Cider (is it even beer technically?)

8. THAT sneeze that refuses to come.

9. Death Metal/Heavy Metal music

10. Tangled earphones – not that I use them.

I seem so reasonable looking at the list of things I “hate”. Fear not, as I am not! πŸ˜€

Nominees… well I tried to search for people who have not been nominated for this. Very difficult!

1. Behind the White Coat

2. Wandering Story Teller

3. KG

4. Sandra Jackson

5. A Touch of My Saint

Participation is purely optional … but hey! I guarantee it is fun πŸ™‚

  1. Things in the first list are serene! Made me smile πŸ™‚
    But it was the sneeze that refuses to come out in the second list that cracked me up πŸ˜€ That annoying sneeze deserves to be hated πŸ˜€


  2. I like eating cheese while wearing wet socks. πŸ˜€ Loved your answers. I don’t like death metal, either, and my ear buds are always getting tangled!


  3. A lovely love and hateful list of things and people and places. I was a bit of a bobble head doll whilst reading through your list. Feels good to resonate with others.
    Here’s to destroying all the fungus on the face of the earth. Ugh. Mushrooms.


  4. I loved your lists, but your father’s comment about being a dog in a previous life is cracking me up! What a thing to tell you…and even worse, you seem to think he’s right! LOL. Too funny. Enjoyed this very much!


  5. Absolutely love the smell of baking too, I find it so therapeutic. And wind in my hair, something I associate with freedom for some reason!
    Hahah, I totally agree with you on wet socks, completely grosses me out!!


  6. Lol πŸ˜› The most hilarious love hate challenge I came across.
    Btw, even I am smell obsessed. I literally smell everything and judge it.


  7. I’m with your ‘love’ on #5 and your ‘hate’ on wet sox. I have to shuck thise if I step in even ine drop of water, yuk πŸ˜‰
