everyday ruralty blog event
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,


  1. sort of laughing at the pizza overload, but i'm sure it's gross!

  2. Love this...always so neat to learn more.
    Hmmmm...a Potato Dish can be FRENCH FRIES? YAHOO! Then that's my favorite too:)))))

    I was so saddened to hear of the tragedies you have experienced in your life. I'm sure they have had a great amount of influence in making you the person you are today.
    I really enjoy reading your post and getting to know you better-hearing the sad, along with the good, is what makes you so real.
    I know what you mean by a lingering stinky oder
    turning you off to those pizzas. Funny how that happens.
    I didn't realize you were so crafty. You'll have to do a show and tell sometime.
    Take care-Kimberly

  4. kim, i have an unhealthy obsession with potatoe's. i have confessed in the past. i eat french fries!!!!

  5. I find it so encouraging that your teachers were kind and loving.

  6. I'm glad you joined in! I just love the new button my oldest made for me. It looks like a place to have a great chat!

  7. I've linked to Patrice's for this too. I love your photos in between your answers... soooo pretty.

  8. Patrice's photo reminds me of your blog and what I imagine your home to be like these days...so sweet.

  9. I enjoyed this...I soo like these kind of meme's too. I might jump on next week. I just read your yesterday's post. How I enjoyed the tour!! What a lovely home you have. I would love to sit on your porch and have tea! Have a wonderful rest of your day! HUGS

  10. Love your answer about your teachers growing up. Isn't if kinda funny how we get certain smells in our heads and even years later it can turn our stomachs!!! HOPE you have a great rest of the week!!!

  11. What a fun meme...loved all your answers. I thought of you when my mother-in-law gave me back a crochet rug I made for her years ago...it still looks new, so she never used it. It was done out of sheets with a huge hook!
    It just doesn't come close to your beautiful work...fun meme


Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
Think of this as coming onto my porch and having
a visit.
