filmAching invites me to a Meme

Thanks, filmAching for inviting me to play.
1. List these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog.

I like mechanical pencils.
I've preached in Scotland.
I'm growing decorative potato plants in my courtyard for the first time.
I don't know what the tiny ear flap at the base of a cat's ear is called.
I love laughing while reading David Sedaris' and Bill Bryson.
I collect vintage dime store nativity figures.
I use Anna Carter Florence's notebook method in sermon prep these days.

The third rule is to tag seven bloggers and notify them.
The eighth thing about me is my stubborness. As Bush's Dad, Old Bush, would say, "not gonna do it." I'm busy playing with mechanical pencils and reading David Sedaris.

Tag yourself and play along, if you wish,

St. Casserole

I find it particularly charming to think of you preaching in Scotland!

When you preached in Scotland, did you speak with an American accent?

and I like to call that little ear flap "Fred".

"I collect vintage dime store nativity figures."

Are those the little all in one plastic ones with the glitter on the roof? We used to get them in church each year. We each had a nativity calendar(actually a December calendar) banner with a christmas tree in the middle and 12 pockets on the top and 12 on the bottom. The tree had sequins and each pocket held a small dime store article with a small string for hanging on the sequins. The last pocket always had one of those little nativity scenes in it.

Great play! When you preached in Scotland did you use your southern accent or your Scottish one?
Opps! Just saw PG's question.
Would lvoe to take you shopping at our thrift stores here.
I played too!

I'd love to see you preach in Scotland. Field trip!!!

What's the notebook method?

Rev Kim said...

I've been doing some out loud laughing while reading Bryson's "A Walk in the Woods." People in the airport and on the airplane recently were giving me some strange looks.

Like Ruby, I'd also like to know about the notebook method.
