Things are getting there, more or less....Sunday Stealing

April 4, 2015
The More Or Less Meme

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. We also provide a link to the victim's meme in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme.
Cheers to all of us thieves!!!

The More Or Less Meme

Stolen from: The Archives

3 (or more, or less!) things... 

1. ...you cannot live without.  
I can't live without food, breathable air, clean fresh water, and my family, all of whom I adore.

2. ...you CAN live without, but cannot seem to part with. 

I CAN live without fabric scraps and every button that has ever rolled my way, but can't seem to part with any of them.  It's Mad I tell you!  This is the only collection that does mine any justice. 

 In researching these mad collectors, I've found some quite cute things to make WITH buttons.  
But then I'd have to give some of them away.
*Bites Nails!*

3. ...you wish to accomplish this COMING week. 
finish reading The Book Thief , finish clearing the shelves of magazines no longer valuable (if they ever were!), finish weeding the front cacti bed (which gifted me with many little spines in the hands), and planning the water saving.

4. ...you have accomplished this PAST week. 
I read half the ebook mentioned above, and did over half of the magazines, and started saving water.  We have about eight well sealed rain barrels that I can save gray water to, some of which already have harvested rain water in them.

5. ...on your holiday (or non-holiday) 'wish list.'  
I wish we had that 6,000 gallon cistern for collecting rain water that I wanted after the last drought.  We have the perfect little hill for it to use a gravity feed.
These look perfect!
But then the neighbors might complain.

6. ...you would like to change about yourself. 
I would like to have more of a happy go lucky, little kid, way of looking at things again.  You know, the second childhood thing?

7. ...you like about yourself. 
I'm passionate about animal rights (and the human's rights for that matter) being observed and not being violated.
Don't you DARE lay a finger on my wildlife! 

8. ...you should be doing right now instead of what you ARE doing. 
I should be tossing out magazines (recycling them),reading that darn book, and knitting that Pink Cardi!!
I think this is Smellyanne's someecard, right?

9. ...in your life that could use a little more organization.
My clothes closets, I have two because one is shared and they are both way too small.  I need to get rid of at least a few things in there that I actually hate as clothing but that have such good materials in them for crafting.  It's CRAZY to keep them but still, I do.  


  1. When I read "The Book Thief" I couldn't put it down. Read it in two days. One of my favourites.

  2. I tried reading "The Book Thief" but couldn't get into it. Everyone says if I get through the first bit it gets better. Maybe I will give it another try this summer when I am off work.

    That is some button collection! I don't save and collect them, but I remember how I used to love going through my Nana's jars and tins of buttons. It was like digging into pirate booty!

  3. I loved the Book Thief--book and movie.

  4. I had this amazing opportunity when my kids were little to donate my hoarded buttons to their school. I wish that I had that opportunity again.

  5. The Book Thief is a wonderful book. I really enjoyed it.

  6. I hate when I've got knitting on hold - I feel so guilty about it! I never knit for myself, so I reckon that's why!

    2nd childhood. I've got the willing if the energy holds out!
