Thanks to DIL, Sarah, at Sermon on the Mount of Laundry; I won’t have to wait for literary inspiration to post today. She has tagged me for ABC About me. Here goes:
A– Available or Married? Available for what? Driving taxi, cooking, dishes, housework, making music? Yes, I am available for music. Been married to the same guy for 19.5 years. Maybe that explains my confusion with the question.
B–Best Friend? Hmmm. My daughter Andrea, my SIL Lisa. I am available right now for a local bosom buddy, but you’ve got a lot to live up to. Have had fantastic friends in the past: Sherry, Evelyn, Coni…
C–Cake or Pie? Pie, cream pie.
D–Drink of choice? Apple Carmel Cider; Almond Sunset tea with soymilk; Cold spring water.
E–Essential Item? Money! And right now, Yak Tracks (think snow chains for boots and dress shoes)
F–Favorite Color? Black! followed closely by Scarlet.
G–Gummy Bears or Worms? Red Gummy Bears.
H–Hometown? Anywhere in Colorado with mountains on one or more sides.
I–Indulgence? White Chocolate to dip in my hot tea of choice.
J–January or February? February
K–Kids and names? Kev, Andrea, Philip
L–Life is incomplete without? Music, Writing, Reading, something to look forward to (vision).
M–Marriage Date? June 1987
N–Number of Siblings? One little brother whom I look up to in more ways than one.
O–Oranges or Apples? Apples
P–Phobias and Fears? “We have nothing to fear but fear itself,” and boy do I fear….not doing the right thing, being rejected…
Q– Favorite quote? “I have studied war….so that my children might study…art, music, poetry..” paraphrase of John Adams.
R–Reason to smile? I have raised 3 creative, responsible, children.
S–Season? Fall and Spring
T–Tag Three People. Qui, Pretending Sanity (she probably won’t take the tag, but you’ll be glad you visited her site!) and Phil or Andrea (you can respond in comments).
U–Unknown fact about me. I have no desire to get up and go to work everyday; I just need the money and it brings me joy to provide nice things for myself and my family.
V–Vegetable you hate? Canned spinach, brussels sprouts, anything slimy.
W–Worst habit? Picking up after people angrily instead of having the patience to wait until they pick up after themselves. (Used to be crunching ice but that took a heavy toll on the teeth).
X–Xylophone or Marimba? Marimba, of course. I always favor wood.
Y–Your favorite food? Chinese or hot, homemade bread.
Z–Zodiac? Well, I am a split personality Gemini, which might explain why I have two answers to every question. But I don’t feel bound at all by the stars. I may choose what or whom I allow to control my life.
