The Letter "L"

Kim tagged me with the letter "L". So, now I must list 10 of my favorite things that begin with that letter.

Number one on the list used to be one of the things I hated most, my middle name: Louise.
My mother promised her best friend that if she had a daughter she would be named after her.
Growing up in the age of Susies, Vickies, Patsys, Lindas, & Sandys, the name Louise seemed hopelessly old-fashioned to me. I hated it and refused to tell anyone what it was. I was, however, grateful that it was only my middle name, and that my mom chose her friends middle name to saddle me with instead of her first name -- Edna. Now, 50+ years later, I love my middle name!

Here are the other nine of my favorite "L" words.

Literature - duh, I do work in a bookstore after all.

Ladybugs - The coolest bug in the world. They are cute and they are a garden's best friend.

Fresh, warm Loaves of homemade bread.

Lemon flavored ANYTHING!

Fried Chicken Livers. With onions, mashed potatos & country gravy.

Making homemade Liqueurs.

Packed Luggage! That means we're on our way!

Lollygagging - Wasting time doing nothing. Just being in the moment.

To continue the chain, leave me a comment on this post and I'll assign your letter. I promise I'll stay away from Q, X, or Z. Thanks to Kim via way of Girasoli for the idea!
