2. Post these rules on your blog.
3. Share six unimportant things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your entry.

So, here are six things you really could give a *SHT*
about ...

1. I stay clear of negative people, they are poison !
(I bury them six feet under and then some)
2. I tivo "House".
(I'm too tired to diagnose at 9pm)
3. I love red wine..St. Emilion is my fav.
(but I'll drink any)
4. I have over 200 Hostas in my yard
(If you would like some, feel free to come and dig)
5. Enzo Angiolini are my favorite shoes.
(the flatter the better)
6. I love cherries !!
(Lots and Lots of cherries)

First cherries (cerises) of the season in Genevieve's Jardin, our aperitif.

And whoever equated a bowl of cherries
to a sweet life anyhow?
To hell with that !

A photo I took in Marrakech, Morocco. 20 Dirham for a kilo. About $2.75

I told you I was Gourmandise !!!

And the six friends I am tagging............

VillaAnna .. Anna from Australia, one of my daily reads.
The Paris Apartment..Claudia, we just can't get enough of her.
Gardiner-Draperier...Maria, a newly discovered Beautiful Blog
The Ribboned Crown...Donna O, can't wait to read
how the Mrs. Simon Cowell of the Blogosphere responds.
Hope Tree Studio..Denise, a talented lady from CA.
All Things Bright & Beautiful..Felicity, what do we
really know about her? She has a beautiful and humble
blog, but please tell us more!! You even have a hard time
finding her name on her blog!
So please ladies, tell us more!

And I have a wish for all of you, that you taste all the
sweet cherries that life has to offer.
Why settle for just a bowl?
Bisou mon ami's

Dear Shawn!! You make me laugh - with those cherries:-).

Are you an "all or nothing" woman like myself?

I think you might be :-)

I hope you don't mind if I pass on the Tagging bit as I'm a bit webshy

But!! I'll let you in on a little secret. Corine of Hidden in France blog has a small interview I've done on her blog today :-) So maybe you'll get to know me a bit more there :-)

Hugs and take care and thank you so much for thinking of me:-)

Felicity XOX :-)
