What are you really great at?

A few nights ago, I told dh I was really good at picking things up with my toes. He wasn't that impressed. But as I walked around the house tonight, with Callum in the front pack and picking up Aidan's toys off the floor using my toes, I thought of starting a new thread.
So, aside from cooking, what are you all really good at doing?

I'm good at
-smiling
-modern dance, I'm of the top in this town
-loving my children & husband

no arguements about pdswife post. she's just stating the obvious.

i am also toe-dextrous. it totally creeps my wife out. my hero is christy brown.

other than that, i'm not sure what i'm good at (certainly not engrish). it's all relative, and changes with time.

I am pretty good at...
  • annoying the neighbours with my karaoke singing
  • climbing up the descending escalator
  • doctoring images on photoshop
  • making heads turn by my sudden loud burst of laughing or screaming (I have a habit of doing that for extremely slight cause...)
  • cutting the tiny excess nails of my hamster
  • writing upside down
  • speaking "Italish" (sentense with Italian words and English words all mixed up together)
boy am I talented...

My friends tell me my gift is hospitality.
I'm very good with laundry (duh)
My memory has been very good. Friends and family always call me to ask about something.
My gardening skills are quite good.
I must be good with grandchildren - they seem to want to be with me all the time. Of course, I love it!

Most things scientific, research, telecommunications, electronics, writing (fictional, technical, ccokbooks), but most importantly, beind a Dad and a husband. My short term memory is lousy, but my long term memory dates back to 1958.

currently?
procrastinating, listening, sarcasm, editing (but not always, eh, Goodweed?)

formerly?
speaking French, playing guitar, dancing (HH doesn't) - these skills have atrophied through want of practice

Relaxing, hanging out, sitting on my butt

While I am serious about that, I am also a pretty good photographer. I have not gone in a while, but back in the day I was a very good canoeist. I can also handle myself very well in a sailboat and many other types of boats.

Oh and eating, I am great at that!

There's an understatement!!!


me?
I love to make things pretty. Whether it's a Christmas Tree, or a room, or a garden, a plate of food, or a newsletter....

I am good at seeing the positive in people. I'm a "glass is even more than half full, cause look at the foam on top!" kind of Pollyanna.

I think I'm good at being a mom.
