Yes, I must confess that I have an addiction. Or, I should say that I have addictions, with an S. And I just recently found two new ones. One is Pinterest. You can get lost in there! I have found so many recipes that I want to try- which is another one of my addictions. I am a hoarder when it comes to recipes. I tear them out of magazines, cut out of newspapers, receive many from friends by email or in person, and love to buy church and community cookbooks that have TNT recipes. You know, Tried'N'True. But, and this is a huge but, I rarely cook much anymore. It isn't much fun cooking for one person and having to eat the same thing for the whole week. I could not live long enought to try a new recipe every day until I have made them all without repeating a single one. Baking introduces another addiction - sugar.

Sugar, anything with sugar in it, the gooey, rich desserts, ice cream, and even cinnamon rolls, caramel rolls, bars, cookies. . . . And we can't leave out chocolate candy! I recently said that it is like an alcoholic looking for another drink, but at least I can't get arrested for driving overdosed on chocolate. I just cannot have it in the house. If I do, it is constantly calling my name and it is not a whisper! It is more like a shout or scream.

Another addiction is with needlework. When I start an afghan or a counted cross stitch project, I can't leave it alone until it is done. Housework suffers, don't get any reading done, and I don't cook but grab instant microwave foods or sandwiches. I do watch tv while working on the project as that is another addiction. I must watch Young & Restless and Days of Our Lives, plus most of Dr. Phil, though some of his subjects are getting a little old. And then there are the evening shows -- right now there is Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, Amazing Race, Biggest Loser, Survivor, Who Do You Think You Are, The Good Wife, Castle. . . . Some nights I am taping one show while watching another, and there is a third show I would like to tape but can't. And other nights there is nothing I care to see, but that gives me time to watch my taped shows. Yes, I know I am addicted.

Then I get addicted to computer games. They do change after awhile, when I find a new one to get addicted to. Right now they are MahJong - Dark Dimensions which I found on the Good Housekeeping site. Another one is Bejeweled that I play on Chrome. I often switch between the two several times in one day. I also have Zuma installed on the computer and can play that for hours. Then there is the daily Soduko and Numbrix puzzles that I usually do first thing in the morning.

And now the latest I just found today - blogging. I have so many things rattling around in my head that can't wait to get written down. I am getting antsy to take some pictures of projects I have done and several other things as well.

I wonder when the next new addiction will show up. . . . . .


  1. Seems we share the same addictions! If we lived closer together, we could get together and support each other - eat chocolate, play games, crochet, watch soaps, etc....

    1. Oooh! We could just as well not get work done together. ;o)

  2. As young "older"ladies we have earned the right to do our hobbies all day if we want. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!! A little chocolate never hurt anyone as far as I know. I am sure I will enjoy your blog. Grandma D.

  3. Sounds like you have some fun "addictions" and none are dangerous, so enjoy them. Welcome to the blogging world - I look forward to reading all these thoughts that are running through your mind!

  4. Love the new blog. Shall add you to my bookmarked blog list, which I do read through weekly. Keep up the posting Lorita and perhaps you could also post some of your lessons now and then?


I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment.
