I like lists - I always have. They help me keep things neat and organized and I like things to be neat and organized. Even if a list isn't about getting things done, I'm still attracted to them. Like this one I got from Busy Bee Suz - which is part of an alphabet meme.

Here's how it works:

Leave a comment on this post and I will assign you a letter. Write about ten things you love that begin with said letter. Post the list on your blog. When people comment on your list, you assign a letter, and the game continues.

I will only assign a letter if you request it, so don't hesitate to comment...

I was given the letter G and here is my list:

1. Garden

I really enjoy my garden from spring right up until the frost kills everything. I love eating stuff fresh from the garden - especially tomatoes. Mmmm! I also plant corn, cucumbers, green beans, strawberries, lettuce, sweet peas, green peppers and rutabagas. But the rutabagas are for my Mom - she likes them a lot. I've also done potatoes, pumpkins, watermelon and raspberries. I haven't had much luck with the raspberries, so I'm giving up on those this year.

I spent all morning looking for mid-summer pictures of my garden, but I couldn't find them. I guess I need to be more organized :(

2. Grandma

She died when I was in high school, but I loved her a lot and still miss her. She was someone I could count on to love me no matter what.

3. Ghosts and the paranormal

Ghost Hunters, ghost stories, ghost movies - I love them all! I do believe they exist.

4. Green

My favorite color. There is a shade to match my every mood.

5. Geocaching

I love hiking. I love scavenger hunts. Geocaching is the perfect marriage of the two. Looking for caches has taken me to places I never knew existed - some of them practically in my own backyard! I've seen beautiful vistas and met some pretty cool people through Geocaching. Plus it's really great exercise. I have a travelbug that made it all the way to Denmark. I just wish I could read Danish so that I knew what the logs that are being posted about it say :)

6. GPS

The tool most important to Geocaching. I recently got a new one, but haven't had the chance yet to give it a thorough tryout. There are some people that Geocache without a GPS, but I think it's more fun with one.

7. George

That's George as in "Where's George?" I love to register and mark all my $1 bills with and track them wherever they may go. It's fun to get the email that lets me know that someone has one of my bills and see where it is at the time. I have one dollar bill that went all the way to Italy! I think I've only found five or six bills marked by someone else - they are as much to find as they are to send out :)

8. Granola bars

They are what start out my mornings!

9. Great Lakes

I love having two of the five Great Lakes - Erie and Ontario - practically in my backyard. I love visiting Niagara Falls which connects the two. The Great Lakes contain about one-fifth of the world's fresh water, which is reassuring to me given the state of the world. When I was little, my uncle used to have a boat and would take my family out on Lake Erie for rides. I'm not much of a beach person, but I love walking along the waterfront - especially early in the morning or when the sun is going down.

10. Global Warming

I don't believe in global warming. But looking at the single digit temperatures we've been subjected to all week, I wish there *was* global warming!

your list is awesome...I am also totally addicted to lists...I have them everywhere. which, can really counter the effect of my organization.
I love ghost stories too....I watch that show "haunted" all the time. freaks me out...
I DID have a ghost when I was a teenager...I will have to blog about it one day...when I know the ghost is not reading that is. ;)
