My friend Marina tagged me several days ago (thanks, girl!) and I finally remembered to post my responses today.
A=Available – for travel anywhere, but it has to be during breaks from school!
B=Best Friend – I am lucky to have several! My sister Esther, Audrey, DonaMae, Darlene, and my 3 daughters.
C=Cake or pie – this is hard! I really like pastry so pumpkin pie is my fave but any cake with chocolate or cream cheese frosting is a close second!
D=Drink of choice – Rooiboos tea, milk, water, iced tea - and salted Caesers!
E=Essential item you use everyday - the computer, especially for email and the camera
F=Favourite color - orange - or any bright colors, really
G=Gummy bears or worms – neither - I'll take peanut M&Ms instead
H=Hometown - I grew up on a farm, near Millet, Alberta
I= ndulgences – Starbuck's Chai Latte' and Purdy's Sweet Georgia Browns - and scrapbook magazines!
J= January or February - I think February - the day of love, days are getting longer, and it's a short month!
K=Kids and names – 4 - Darrin Robert, Heather Crystal, Melinda Christine, Naomi Marie
L=Life is incomplete without - people and dessert!
M=Marriage date – July 30, 1976
N=Number of siblings – 2 brothers, then 2 sisters - I'm the oldest (and the bossiest they would agree!)
O=Oranges or apples – An apple a day but lately I've been craving nice big juicy Valencia oranges - the ones that you can't find in any stores around here this winter, because of the lousy weather in California
P=Phobias or Fears – fear of snakes and mice
Q=Favourite Quote – "Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in your soul and sings the tune without the words
and never stops - at all." Emily Dickinson
R=Reason to smile – talking to our kids and playing with our sweet granddaughters - oh, and weekends!
S=Season - I love the flowers and sunshine of spring, the warmth and activities of summer and the colors of autumn. Winter - ah, not so much at all!!
T=Tag 3 or 4 people - Melinda, Rhonda, Carrie and Patti T
U=Unknown fact about me –I played softball during the summer when I was in junior high but I really am not a good thrower so they always put me in right field!
V=Vegetable you don't like – Raw garlic - I hate how strong it is!
W= Worst habit – I am really a night owl and I stay up way too late most nights. Seems I have a down time right after supper and then get my second wind about 10 p.m.. I'm really trying hard to be in bed earlier, especially on school nights.
X=X-rays – Only dental ones and mammograms
Y=Your favorite food – Pretty much any food but I really, really like pizza, dislike herring and I haven't developed a taste for sushi yet.
Z= Zodiac Sign - Aries
Thanks for reading!
