N is for _____________

August 17th, 2011

NATURE NERD – I’m becoming just like my parents – a nature nerd. I have bird, tree, and plant identification books and a pair of binoculars. I know the names of many plants, including scientific names. All of those things I learned in science classes throughout my life are coming in handy.

NONPARTISAN – my political views span all parties fairly equally so I don’t really ascribe to any. I’m registered as an independent. I try to read and listen to news from all sides and make my decisions according to my personal judgement. I don’t allow specific parameters set forth by the various political parties to define who I am politically, I refuse to vote by a label or party lines.

NUMBERS – I’m a numbers person – the family accountant. I love adding, subtracting and multiplying in my head, balancing my checkbook.

NATURAL – I love all things natural. If I can find a natural product to replace something plastic in my home I do. I use natural sea sponges, loofah, wood, etc.

NOISELESS – I love peace and quiet, noise in general kind of bothers me. I don’t listen to music in the car or in the house.

NUTRITIOUS – I definitely focus on nourishing foods ascribing to the Weston A Price suggestions.

NICKNAME – I don’t go by my real name – which is Susan. I usually go by Susy or for those who know me well Suze, or by a few other names.

What words/phrases describe you that start with a N?

    More power to you with the numbers! That is one thing I just don’t have the knack for!
