Patrice had a new Meme!!!! I love the picture. I just have to play along.
I think if you want to join it would be great fun and a way to get to know you
Patrice is at Everyday Rurality.
1. What's your favorite potato dish?
French fries, I don't eat them though. So something I eat, well, potato soup. I like that.
2. When was the last time you were at a playground?
I don't do playgrounds. That is why I have my own in my back yard. I lost my son at one when he was two, and I never again went to them.
3. Do you do any needle crafts or sew?
Oh gosh, I love all needle crafts. I do counted cross stitch, rug hooking, needle punch, quilting, sewing clothes, I still want to make braided rugs and I would like to make more stuffed animals. I also do needlepoint.
4. Who was your favorite adult, outside of you family, when you were a child?
It had to be my teachers at my school. I went to a little grade school. When my Mom died, they just stepped in and even though I was in sixth grade, my third grade teacher would have me over on weekends to just talk. My sister was in 1st grade so her 1st grade teacher would take her home from school after school until my Dad could pick her up after work.
When I got in junior high the teachers there were Christians and they found ways of making it real and preparing us for the world. I think that if not for them those rocky years of trying to blend two families would have taken its toll on me. It was very, very hard but
those people were always willing to listen and they would step in the gap over and over
through the years. I am friends on facebook with the teachers from my old school and it is so nice to read the comments from people who felt just like I did, it was a safe place in a crazy world.
5. What topping do you like on your pizza?
When my kids started working at the pizza place they would fix such yummy ones. My favorite being Bacon, chicken, Artichoke with spinach. But now, that they have to bring home the mistakes, I don't know if I will ever eat any pizza again. yuk!! I just hate the smell so much. The place also makes cheesy bread and a cinnamon wheel that they bring home at night when they are having people over at night when I am trying to get ready for bed and the smell as I am going to sleep is just gross. So at this point I will never make cinnamon rolls again.
Thanks to Patrice, I really love the new title and the new blog. The questions really are fun.
I will be putting your button on my sidebar soon as I figure out how, :) or the upstairs residents get up who know computers better than me.
Have a wonderful Wednesday,
