We're finally up and running.
And I was happy to see Deetsa from deetsasdiningroom had stopped by and tagged me for a meme.
I really enjoy reading her blog as it is about two places I've always admired, British Columbia and France.
And to me that's the best thing about blogging, getting to know people from other parts of the world and discovering new things. And it sure sounds like Deetsa enjoys some beautiful scenery and some fantastic food in her part of the world. Thank's Deetsa!
So here goes ...
1. Last Movie I Saw In A Movie Theater?
"Sex and the City" I only make it to the movies about once a year.
2. What Book Are You Reading?
I enjoy the classics. I devoured A Moveable Feast in a day. And now I am relishing For Whom The Bell Tolls. I had forgotten what a foodie ol' Hem was and never realized the symbolic references of food in his stories. No one gets to the gut of the matter like Hemingway. And I appreciate the fact that he doesn't glorify food, he simply reminds us of what it's like to be human and eat.
3. Favorite Board Game?
Clue. By far the best board game of all time. But I must confess, I didn't play many board games growing up because my theory was "the reason they were called board games is because I got bored playing them."
4. Favorite Magazine?
I'm a sucker for all cooking magazines, especially Cooking Light, Cooks Illustrated, Southern Living, and Midwest Living. Also, I have been known to pick up a Victoria and Cottage Living once in a while, especially autumn issues.
5. Favorite Smells?
Bread baking, garlic, coriander, fresh green onions, a crackling fire in the fireplace, lilacs, my sons burr head when I kiss him, and that wonderfully unique smell of burning jack-o-lanterns on Halloween.
6. Favorite Sounds?
I like Deetsa's previous post of Real church bells. That's a good one. Also my husband's voice, my cat purring, my son's classical guitar, my daughter's sweet voice, my son's voice. But most of all, I love Silence.
7. Worst Feeling In The World?
Not being able to help when someone I know who is hurting, hungry, or in need.
8. First Thing You Think of When You Wake?
Wow that was a quick night.
9. Favorite Fast Food Place?
Hmm ... that's a tough one because I really don't eat fast food. But I do like Chipotle Grill and Panera Bread once in a while.
10. Future Child's Name?
My children are grown and we certainly have no plans for more, but I do have a few names in mind for cats: Percy, Henry, Piero,Violet and Chloe.
11. Finish This Statement—“If I Had a Lot of Money,"
I would travel the world.
12. Do You Drive Fast?
13. Do You Sleep With a Stuffed Animal?
14. Storms—cool or scary?
Having spent my entire life in Kansas and Oklahoma, I would have to say both cool and scary.
15. What Was Your First Car?
A Ford Pinto
16. Favorite Drink?
Coke, wine and tea.
17. Finish This Statement—“If I Had the Time, I Would…"
Go to college.
18. Do You Eat the Stems on Broccoli?
19. If You could Dye your Hair Any other color what would it be?
Probably the blond it used to be when I was four years old.
20. Name All the Different Cities In Which You Have Lived –
Oh, I lost track.
21. Favorite Sport to Watch?
22. One Nice Thing About The Person Who Sent This To You
She visits my blog, and that is nice. Also she likes the movie Sense and Sensibility, and anyone who enjoys this type of movie is a friend in my book.
23. What’s Under Your Bed?
Dusty Rubbermaid storage boxes with old wrapping paper and junk in them.
24. Would You Like to Be Born As Yourself Again?
Apparently no one else was up for the job the first time around -- so if I had to do it again, yes, I'd be a 'born again me.'
25. Morning Person or Night Owl?
I'm typing this at 2:00 a.m. on a weeknight ...
26. Over Easy or Sunny Side Up?
27. Favorite Place to Relax?
At home. With a book.
