2010 Getting to Know You…

My friend, Rhonda e-mailed me this – and I thought it would be a perfect Sunday post…

1.  What color are your socks right now?  Pink – I always wear socks.

2.  What are you listening to right now?  The PGA tour on TV

3.  What was the last thing you ate?  Puffed Rice cereal with milk and sugar.

4.  Can you drive a stick shift?  Nope, never learned how.  Not that I haven’t tried.

5.  Last person you spoke to on the phone?  Scarlett!  Left a message for my daughter on her voice mail – but, that doesn’t count.

6.  How old are you today?  64

7.  What is your favorite sport to watch on TV?  Golf – I know people think it is boring – but, it’s interesting to me.

8.  What is your favorite drink?  Lemonade.  Ameretto and Half and Half over ice.

9.  Have you ever dyed your hair?  Yes – but, I quit a few years back and am glad I did…It’s a pain in the neck to keep it up.

10.  Favorite food?  Seafood

11.  What is the last movie you watched?  Across the Universe – it’s such a cool movie.  I watch it every now and then…just cause I can sing along with all the Beatles songs.

12.  Favorite day of the year?  My birthday…

13.  How do you vent?  I tell Killian everything.  He is a good listener…

14.  What was your favorite toy as a child?  Doll clothes that my mother and grandmother made for my doll.  They were made by hand as we didn’t own a sewing machine then.

15.  What is your favorite season?  Oh, that’s tough – because now that I live in New Hampshire I actually get all four seasons.  I love the beauty of spring, the warmth of summer, the colors of fall, and the peacefulness and quiet of winter.

16.  Cherries or Blueberries?  Blueberries – Love them!

17.  Living situation?  I live in an apartment with Killian, my cat!  I have become accustomed to apartment living now…and although I miss not being able to have a dog, I enjoy my life.

18.  When was the last time you cried?  Last week – when I heard a dear friend passed away.  He had fought a long battle against cancer – but, it was one he was not able to win.  He and his family were very special to me.

19.  What is on the floor of your closet right now?  Some totes with yarn and fabric.  My shoes hang behind my door.

20.  What did you do last night?  Watched COPS and AMERICA’S MOST WANTED while I knit on my shawl.  Then I went to bed and read for about two hours.

21.  What are you most afraid of?  rodents – like mice and rats…they just freak me out…

22.  Plain, cheese, or spicy hamburgers?  Depends – mostly plain and sometimes with cheese – depends on the cheese.  Never spicy…my tummy can’t handle it.

23.  Favorite dog breed?  Heinz 57 – a mutt…

24.  Favorite day of the week?  Tuesday and Wednesday – those are days that I enjoy spending time with knitting and quilting friends.  Since I’m retired I can relax on any day…

25.  How many states have you lived in?   4 States and 1 Commonwealth …  Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico (Commonwealth and US Territory), Florida, Tennessee and New Hampshire.

26.  Diamonds or pearls?   If I had to pick between the two it would be diamonds.  But, my favorite stone is an amethyst.

27.  What is your favorite flower?  Lilacs – although I have to say the Iris and Daisy are right up there with the Lilacs.
