Monday Listicles

Happy ( almost, but not quite) Halloween Week!

Hope you all have your costumes chosen, pumpkins carved and candy bought. Or like me at least one out of three… Thank you all for sharing your 10 Halloween ideas last week, did anyone get a last minute inspiration from visiting the listicles? Look forward to seeing what fun this year’s spookiest holiday brings you!

This week the topic was suggested by Bridget: List of 10 firsts. I love doing things for the first time and there are many ways to approach this topic, so I am curious where it takes you. Thank you so much Bridget for a great suggestion!

Next week is going to be a good one!! ( Yes, I know, I always say that. But I am also always right ). This is what Ducky said:

and I like it. To be politically correct, let’s do it next week, half way between Canadian Thanksgiving and US one. Let’s see your 10 Amazing memories from not so long ago.

Before you wander off to ponder those, let’s read the lists of firsts.

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!



1. First time I held my son, I fell in love.
2. First time I took off on a plane, I fell in love.
3. First time I owned a camera, I fell in love.
4. First time I saw my dog, I fell in love.
5. First time I landed in NY, I fell in love.
6. First time my husband kissed me, I fell in love.
7. First time I ate a chocolate truffle, I fell in love.
8. First time I heard Tchaikovsky, I fell in love.
9. First time I rode Vizon, I fell in love.
10. First time I woke up on our island, I fell in love.

Big M was one of ten. Here he is with his mom Jet. Photo credit Debra Greenwood.

    Newfoundlands are such a special breed for me. I will forever associate them with my sister. Hers was named Dixie and she was the biggest dog I have ever seen! Plodding around at 206 pounds, she was a Goliath and the most gentle, soft, slobbering mass of black hair I’ve ever had in my face.

    Super excited about my topic next week! Thanks again for giving me a little Listicles spotlight. I feel kinda special

    Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to know a lot approximately this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I feel that you just can do with a few p.c. to force the message house a little bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.
