I've been Meme'd

Before I get to the Meme I've had a couple of questions about my jam and pectin. I used to think that was the only way to make jam but a few years ago I started seeing recipes not using it. Curiosity finally got the best of me and I tried one. Now I usually use recipes that don't use pectin. It has to cook longer until it gets kind of syrupy but that is the only difference. I used the plate in the freezer thing for the Strawberry but I do use Certo in my Blueberry. I've never tried a recipe that calls for pectin and leave it out so I don't know if it would work or not.

My new friend from Fancy Horse has picked me to join in a Meme. Some of these I had to think about for awhile. Way too hard for a Sunday morning, but fun too!!
I THINK -- I'm hungry and should start breakfast
I KNOW -- I'm at a content place in my life
I HAVE -- no patience
I WISH -- I was more patient
I HATE -- not being organized
I MISS -- my Dad
I FEAR -- not being able to take care of myself
I FEEL -- happy
I HEAR -- the birds sing in the morning before I get up
I SMELL -- coffee
I CRAVE -- chocolate chocolate and more chocolate
I SEARCH -- for peace
I WONDER -- what life will bring me
I REGRET -- not being able to spend more time with my Dad before he passed away
I LOVE -- my family and my kitties who are part of my family
I ACHE -- my poor back
I AM NOT -- unhappy
I BELIEVE -- there is a reason for everything that happens
I DANCE -- when I'm happy
I SING -- when I'm alone
I CRY -- when I see a sad movie or read a sad book
I DON'T ALWAYS -- have patience
I FIGHT -- I try not to, life is too short to fight
I WRITE -- lists
I WIN -- everyday when life is good
I NEVER -- play games
I ALWAYS -- try to smile
I LISTEN -- when I want to
I CAN USUALLY BE FOUND -- at home in the kitchen
I AM SCARED -- I don't think I'm really scared of anything but I don't like bugs or spiders or snakes. In other words anything that crawls
I NEED -- quiet time, I don't like hectic
I AM HAPPY ABOUT -- most everything, this morning watching my kittens play and lounge on the patio
I IMAGINE -- staying young at heart and healthy

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. We are going to an early dinner and to see Batman tonight. I'll let you know how I like it. Have you seen it yet?
