2. How would you describe your style when dressing for yourself, rather than work?
casual, comfortable

3. I have noticed that there seem to be two kinds of dressers in the winter months. Those who love turtlenecks and those that abhor them! Which are you?!

10 on Tuesday

1. Read blogs. Work on my blogs. Browse the internet. Play internet games.

2. Scrapbook! Scrapbook! Scrapbook!

3. Read.

4. Bake..... yummy!

5. Take a bath. I am not talking about the ones you take quickly to get clean. I mean a real bath, with bath oils or bubbles, candles, music playing, quiet time, a good long soak in the tub. Ummm, I love it. This de-stresses me like nothing else can.

6. Work on one of my many unfinsihed craft projects. And I have many that are unfinished.

7. I don't talk a lot on the phone, I worked for sixteen years as a telephone operator, and talking on the phone was the last thing I wanted to do. But sometimes, I call my sister in CA and we talk for hours. Hey, thank God for cell phones. It's free after 7 pm.

8. Go for a walk. Hubby and I do this a lot when the weather is warm.

9. Clean house. OK, I am an organize freak. I like everything to be where it should be. (A touch of ACD perhaps), and I totally love to clean my closet and srawers out. I know, I'm weird.

10. Last, but not least. This used to be my favorite thing to do period- but life's circumstances and lack of money changed all that. GO SHOPPING!!!!!!!

TMI Tuesday

TMI Tuesday

1. By what nickname(s) were you known as a child?
Stinker, don't ask!

2. Do you have a favorite poem and, if so, what is it? Recite it (or a snippet) here, please.
How special! My mom used to recite Robert Frost. This was my favorite, about fireflies.

Fireflies in the Gardenby: Robert Frost

Here come real stars to fill the upper skies,
And here on earth come emulating flies,
That though they never equal stars in size,
(And they were never really stars at heart)
Achieve at times a very star-like start.
Only, of course, they can't sustain the part.

3. What is your greatest regret in life, something that you failed to do that you wish you did?
My greatest regret is not keeping in close touch with my brother Chuck, whom I love with all my heart. He is married to a very dominant woman, who requires him to live in a black box, if you know what I mean. He is not allowed to do or think outside the box. The box has no gray areas or color. I am dancing on top of the box with a rainbow colored dress on, therefore I am not approved of. This makes no sence to you, I'm sure, but I know what I mean. Honest! My other sister is also ostracized, she is worse than me, dancing all around the box naked!

4. You are tired and hungry, but it's too late to cook. If any snack food were available to you, what would you choose and why?
Ritz crackers, bread and butter pickles, and a hunk of cheese.

5. What is the oldest item of clothing (not jewelry!) that you wear regularly and what do you love about it?
I have a pink shirt that is so old it is almost threadbare. It is my favorite shirt and I wear it often at home. It's baggy, comfortable, and I just like it.

Bonus (as in optional):Name a movie or TV show that changed your thinking or behavior.
The Michael Moore movies changed how I thought tremendlessly!!

Heads or Tails #24

The FIRST time I got married I was 17 years old, yes I was a baby, and was four months pregnant. It lasted 25 years. The first five were good, then we drifted apart, but stayed together til the boys were grown. We got married in my Grandmother's living room. We were a church going family, but under the circumstances, they did not think it was right for me to get married in church. I always thought was the one place I wanted to be and that was denied me.Funny how things turn out.

The Last time I got married I was 48 years old and thought it would never happen. I had sworn off men forever. Hah! Robert is the best thing that ever happened to me, other than having my children. He treats me like a queen and everyone notices and tells me how lucky I am. I may not always act like it, but I am very lucky and I do know that. We got married in Las Vegas in the Candlelight wedding chapel. Then our church threw us a big reception/shower the next Sunday when we got back to Los Angeles.

Linking Experiment Meme

Michael tagged me for this through Entrecard and I promised him I’d participate. Here goes.

Rule #1
Copy all the links below (make sure its alphabetized) and replace a single link under the appropriate alphabet. If your domain name, or even the title of your blog, starts with an ” A,” you’d replace the link under that alphabet and put the replaced link at the bottom. Also, don’t forget to credit the tagger, or where you got the list from, at the end of the list with a full URL of the post so that a pingback gets generated.


previous tagger-

Rule #2
You now have to “tag” at least five people and encourage them to participate so that this thing spreads like a virus. Remember, though, that not everyone’s into these kinds of things, so don’t be upset if they don’t participate. Just simply replace your tag. Remember to tag blogs only and no pornographic ones as we do want to keep the integrity as a blogging community. TIP: Tag your frequent EntreCard droppers via its messaging system.

Rule #3
Just like any other “meme” out there, ask a question for your taggees to answer along with your own answer to the previous question.
In answer to Michael’s question, I started blogging about three years ago. When did you start blogging?

I started last year and am totally hooked.
Thanks all!
