Fun Monday

Our hostess extraordinaire this week is Mariposa and here is her assignment:



We all have them...and if you don't, you do....you just may not realize it. For some reason or another we all collect something and we collect it for reasons that will definitely make for good reading. So on Monday, I want to see your collection. If you don't have or don't want or CAN'T (wink) show us a picture, then tell us what the collection is in 10 words or less. Then tell us why you started collecting it.



Collections....let's see here....



In my previous life, before I became a Mom, I collected anything and everything that had to do with wolves. Wolves are definitely my favorite animal and I have many books, figurines, etc. with wolves on them. I still love wolves today.



Then I became a Mom!!! I just did not have the time and/or energy for collections....so nowadays I collect....



....to-do lists, grocery lists, errand lists, appointment lists......



....and bills, and more bills.....











....but most important....I'm collecting Memories and I cannot think of a more important or valuable collection than that!!!





Head on over to Mariposa's for more collections. I am sure we will learn of some wacky and wonderful collections this week.

And that song always makes me cry.

Memories...amen.

Pamela said...

reminds me to keep making them, Memories.

by the way - love that women's voice. Wow. chills.

I used to collect ceramic cats. I still have a few around. And they collected dust.

Now I'm sorry I didn't post again!!

Jan said...

Memories, are a good think to collect, and they don't need to be displayed. Writing them down is good, so they're not lost.

ChrisB said...

I agree with the memories and all my collections are based on just that!

Jo Beaufoix said...

Wplves are beautiful aren't they? And very mysterious. And the lists and bills? Yep, I collect those too.

Sayre said...

My brother is a wolf-man. He's had a couple of hybrids and they were beautiful!

But you hit the rest right on the head... lists and memories. That's my life too.

Meg said...

Yes, memories are great--they take up little space and don't collect dust (well, at least most of them).

Olive said...

Thanks for the memory collection we all have them. And wolves are a special breed.

IamwhoIam said...

memories, yes indeed but only keep the good ones. Learn from the other but keep the good ones.

And the all powerful list.

Thanks for playing

Did you take the photo of the wolf? If so, it's beautiful. They are inspiring animals--love their social structure.

I'm with you one the lists--and I don't have kids. Always a good thing even though nothing gets marked off.

mjd said...

Yes, keep the memories and cherish the good ones.

Nekked Lizard Lady said...

Aye! memories are the best.

Celeste said...

Wolves are breath-taking, but the memories will be as well.

My brother was into collecting Wolves. One year for Christmas I gave him a beautiful Wolf stein. It's fun when I visit him, to see it. I have to agree, collecting memories is the coolest one of all....I couldn't help but giggle...I collect the same to do list...grocery list...bills. Sounds very familiar.

I will never get that song out of my head again.

I collect appointments and bills too! Funny thing about that. I will send you mine if you want to add to your collection.

Gattina said...

I know people who collect owls, elephants, frogs, geese, cats (me) dogs and even mice ! but of wolves I have never heard, lol !
I have seen "Cats" in London it was wonderful !

grace said...

collecting memories is fun, makes you cry at times

Laura@Storytellin' Mama said...

I am new to blogging and enjoying it so much, because it is a perfect time capsule to collect memories.

Thanks for commenting at my site!

I think boys are more apt to have random collections in their pockets, near the laundry, and squirreled away in unknown places.

Cruise Mom said...

Thanks for commenting at my site, and thanks for reminding me of my collection of memories - like the commercial says: Priceless.

lisa marie said...

My daughter also once collected wolves and now is "baking" my third grandchild. :) Second for her though.

Patience-please said...

My bill collection is increasing, and I'm losing my memory collection at an alarming rate...

Debra W said...

You are collecting something that could NEVER be replaced, Alison! I think that is wonderful!

Have a happy day, friend!

Love and hugs,
Deb
