Things We Lose

~~ A Glimpse at the Cornucopia of
Things We Lose Around Our House ~~

Can you name all seven
things we temporarily lose?


  1. Lions? Courage! Yes. I lose my roar often. As for the brain cells, well, I'm not sure I'll ever get those back! Ha!

  2. 1.Keys
    2.Pets (not sure on this one)
    3.Scissors (just found my main pair in the couch cushions after a couple weeks of being lost!)
    7.Sight (not sure on this one either)

  3. Oh, you both are close. I can't wait to share the answers either late today or tomorrow. :D
    Fun. Fun.

  4. I'd better not lose scissors. My daughter will find them and cut her hair. *groan*

  5. What wonderful fun!

    1. keys
    2. I don't know on this one...but my puppy runs off regularly
    3. scissors
    4. courage
    5. faith in ourselves
    6. knowledge (retention)
    7. brain cells

  6. Only seven? I won't confess my number. ;-)

  7. 1. keys
    2. pet
    3. scissors
    4. courage
    5. focus
    6. book(s)
    7. mind

    Since you're a writer, I thought I'd mention there's a writers' support group you might be interested in. It's called Writers_on_Writing. If you want to know more, check out my blog. I posted some info about it yesterday. Maybe you know other writers who might want to join? The group's a SUPPORT group, not a critique group for writers 18 years or older.

  8. What a fun post!!!

    1. Keys
    2. Hair
    3. scissors
    4. I was going to say courage... but pride?
    5. focus
    6. books
    7. mind

    I'm excited to read the answers!

  9. Cute! Half of those are lost at our house on a weekly basis too=)

  10. This is too fun!

    1) Keys
    2) Important people
    3) Time--in reference to the three fates;-)
    4)The lions reminded me that sometimes I lose my lunch
    5) Answers or important things that we really ought to have remembered.
    6) Books--Very important things
    7) Our minds

  11. Drum roll please....brmmbrmm (or at least that's kind of how it sounds in my mind):

    I declare Katie the winner. I think she was the closest.
    And now for the ANSWERS:
    1. Keys (I'm proud of all you who got this one. It was tricky. Okay, enough sarcasm I don't like anyway)
    2. Our dog (so pet is right)
    3. Scissors (very good :D )
    4. Yes, Katie...Pride and we lose lots of that around here. (loved how Windsong, you were reminded of losing your lunch :D)
    5. Homework (I like all the answers each of you came up with...answers, focus, faith in ourselves and concentration...we lose those things too)
    6. Books. One night I spent over an hour looking for a very good book I was reading. Toddler = book stealer
    7. Our minds (though I loved the answer Tess gave...brain cells)

    Oh, and Rebecca...remember it was only a glimpse of the things we lose...there are far more! :D Glad I'm not alone.

    You all kept my brain entertained today. Thank you for that. And Katie, I will post a blog soon with a link to your site for getting the most correct.

    I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know each of you through blogging!

  12. Hi there, Wendy,

    Well, everyone has already guessed, your contest is over, and frankly I'm glad, because the whole lion thing had me stumped. Now nobody will know how clueless I truly am. LOL

    So nice to meet you...I'm glad we met through Nathan's blog. You just never know where you might meet someone. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment.


  13. Congrats, Katie! And thanks for doing this, Wendy. It was a lot of fun!

  14. YEA! I hardly ever win anything - so how fun! That was a really fun activity to do. Seriously - i kept checking your blog throughout the day to see when you were going to post the answers.

    By the way - I absolutely LOVE the music on your blog. I could just open your blog up to and leave it on while I type because I love your music!
