A to Z – The ABC’s of Me: L


This is my seventh year of participation in the A to Z Challenge. My intent this year is to share a little bit about me each day… the good, the bad, and the ugly… so you can get to know “the woman behind the words” a little better!

While going thru my archives on the old blog, I came across this post that I did for the 2015 A-Z Challenge. It’s a list of things that I like that begin with the letter L, and since I still like these things, I thought I’d share it here on this blog…

L Things That Make Me Smile…

Love – “…the greatest of these is love.” – I Corinthians 13:13  Amen!

Lilacs – The scent of lilacs is my very favorite of all the flowers.  My mother had a cousin who lived in the country and the entire drive from the road up to their house was bordered by huge lilac bushes, when them began to bloom it was heavenly!

Lefties – Lefties always make me smile, because of course I am one!  We even have our own official day each year! You’d be amazed at how many things are designed with the right-handed person in mind, making them a bit more difficult or clumsy for  us lefties to use.

Log Cabins –  I love log cabins, both old and new. There is something about the warmth of wood that can’t be duplicated by wallpaper, paint, tile or other wall surfaces.  One of the fantasies Papa Bear and I share would be to live in a small log cabin by a lake.

Lakes – I was raised in the northeast region of South Dakota, and there were three lakes within 30 miles distance from our house.  I spent many happy days swimming, picnicking and fishing with my dad.  When I was in high school our family owned a small lake cabin and we loved staying there.

Limericks – Limericks are fun!  They are silly and sometimes bawdy, and written with the intent of making the reader smile… and they do!

Lemon Chicken – One of the Chinese foods I love, though it’s probably an American adaptation. Lemon goes well with fish and chicken, and the sweet/sour taste is perfect with fluffy rice.

Lava Lamps – Ahh, sweet memories of times gone by!  I love them, and I still have a couple. 🙂 They are so relaxing to watch!

Lace –  Lace, which long ago was all handmade, is such lovely stuff.  There is nothing prettier than lace trim on a blouse, or a lace-covered dress… it is the essence of femininity!

Listening to Life Stories – Listening is important! It’s an art we all need to practice more. My most favorite thing to do is to listen to someone tell me their life story. We all have story to tell!

What are some of the things you like that start with the letter “L”?

Author: Josie Two Shoes

I've been blogging off and on since August of 2006. I adopted the pen name Josie Two Shoes in 2007 as I began a new chapter of my life standing on my own two feet. Now I'm married to the man of my dreams; we live in dusty West Texas with a house full of furkids. I am an Aquarian by birth, and although I am past sixty and slightly frayed around the edges, my fascination with this thing called life continues. Faith, family, and friends are important to me; so are honesty, trust, tolerance, compassion and kindness. I'm pretty up front about most things, so if you want to know something more about me, just ask! :-) You can also reach me by email and find me at my Facebook page.

  1. Fun list. I’m liking your theme, and I imagine in letting us discover more about you, doing these posts is clarifying what’s important to you as well.

    Some of my L likes include: lilacs, lavender, and lisianthus flowers; lemons; leopards and lions; and author Charles de Lint. 🙂

  2. What a great list. List is an L word that I love. One of our local Chinese restaurants makes a great lemon sauce for their lemon chicken. You’ve put it in my mind now I might have to have it for dinner!

  3. Great, fun post, Josie. I love your list. Never smelt a real lilac in my life. Log cabin by the lake sounds so romantic.
    My favourite L word is Love too.
    I worship the Corinthians 13:13.
    Thank you for sharing so much of yourself with us.

  4. Nice list of L’s. We have 3 colors of lilacs in our yard-white, purple and and a very dark purple. They are not blooming yet. I am a lefty too and so is my mom 🙂

  5. lentils, ladies, love, lava,
    living, lists and bakLava,
    all of the L’s make me think
    what the ‘ell?
    This was supposed to be about guava!

    Yeah not my best Limerick but it’s hard to find something to rhyme with lava that begins with L!

  6. My great aunt had a ginormous lilac bush outside her back door. She threw eggshells under it, because someone once told her it helped them, and it must have worked, because it had to have been 7 or 8 feet tall.
