Spin Cycle--Tempt Me

Temptation is the topic of the Spin Cycle this week.  What tempts you?  What tempts me?  Wanna know?  Oh so many things.

Reading all the time to the exclusion of anything else--family, cleaning, TV, anything.  Given the opportunity to read without interruption is my idea of the perfect day.  I can (and have) dive into a book and not pay any attention to what's going on around me. I get completely engrossed and, truly, a natural disaster could happen right next to me and I would never know. I love reading and getting that involved tempts me every time I open a book--be it a real book or a Kindle book.
Salty snacks.  Chips, crackers, croutons, sunflower seeds, cheese and sausage, anything salty, crunchy or nibbly is a weakness for me.  I could really pack the pounds on if I wasn't careful. I love to nibble. Which goes hand in hand with reading.  Nibbling while I read is so easy and I don't even notice how much I'm eating. Sugary snacks don't hold quite the appeal for me--I have to have a salty snack to balance the flavors out.  And on certain days, give me all the carbs--garlic bread, crackers, bagels with garlicy cream cheese, french fries, tater tots, any carb will do as long as it's savory not sweet.
Playing hookey from responsibility. I would love to run away for a while.  time on a nice warm beach with Nick and a cute cabana boy or two (for the scenery of course).  Being able to spend time reconnecting with Nick--without pressure to return before we are ready to. Not to have to clean any thing or any one.  Running away tempts me every day.
So what tempts you?                                         
Spin it up and link up.
Gretchen and Ginny Marie would love to have you!

  1. oh yes, the salty snack. I'm with you, I'm much more of a savory girl than a sweet girl. Though some particular sweets get me too. I desperately with that reading was still the temptation to me that it used to be. It's become the computer now. Sad.

    Thanks for linking!

  2. Oh, I love books! Once I start reading, I can't put it down and then nothing gets done around my house. It's pathetic, really!

  3. I am so with you on the books! This afternoon I took my students to the school library, and as they showed me the books they'd picked out and that I wanted to read too, I kept saying, "Too many books, not enough time!"


I love to get comments! They make my heart go pitter-pat! Go on comment--I'll do my best to go give your blog some love too!
