She Loves MEME, She Love MEME Not...

My friend, Colleen over at Loose Leaf Notes tapped me to do this MEME. Since it looked like a really fun one...I'm in.

I love to eat fresh vegetables and fresh fruit especially during the months that I can buy it at the farmers' market; fresh seafood - especially salmon, trout, haddock, and soft shelled crab; and crockpot roasts with all the veggies.

I hate to eat overcooked food, tofu, green peas, and meatloaf - mainly because my grandmother's meatloaf was so dry and hard you could use it to break a window.

I love to go explore places on foot and wander around towns; ride public transportation in cities that are new to me; walk in the woods; search out waterfalls; go to quilt and knit shops; and explore museums and historic sites.

I hate to go to the dentist; shopping for clothes; and to the movies alone.

I love it when I get to visit with family and friends; I get to take the scenic route anywhere; I can travel the backroads; I can sit all day and read, or quilt, or knit; Killian gets right up against my leg and sleeps for hours; and my daughter calls me from Arizona for no reason at all except to say hi.

I hate it when someone hurts an animal; I have to drive in big city traffic; use the interstate; or when I get sick.

I love to see my daughter's face; a quilt or a knitted item start to take shape; snow on the ground; the leaves turning colors; sunsets; sunrises (if I get up in time); skies filled with stars; blue, blue skies; the mountains in the distance; and travel shows on tv.

I hate to see animal abuse; television ads for prescription drugs (and they wonder why drugs cost those who need them so much!); the shrub on television spouting his "fear" agenda; and bad movies!

I love to hear music - all kinds except rap and hip/hop and some opera; birds singing; the hum of my sewing machine; the clink of knitting needles; and the tapping of keys on the keyboard.

I hate to hear sirens in the middle of the night (or any time for that matter); people fighting; and children throwing temper tantrums in public.

I am sure there are other things that could be added to this list...but, this was what came to mind now.

As always, please feel free to leave comments or if you decide you'd like to do this MEME - do let me know so I can hit your blog to see your answers!

Gosh if I did this one, all I would have to do is copy yours and make only 1 or 2 changes/additions. I still think we're twins separated at birth, LOL.

So many of your answers are exactly what mine would be! I do love peas though and I eat tofu. I laughed out loud at your grandmother's meatloaf!! Drug ads are ridiculous and come to think of it so is the shrub!

These are fun to read and the stuff you love makes me happy to read. I think I could be continuously revising my list after I read other ones.

Oh, hee hee, your reason for meatloaf "hate" is spot on with my meatloaf experience. And I think I'l play with this meme on my blog in a day or so.

We share many of the same likes and dislikes (except I do like some old skool rap and hip/hop, I don't mind going to the movies alone, driving in big city traffic or using the interstate).

I like this meme a lot and I enjoyed reading your answers.
