Last week I was tagged by Simone
I just love these things ~ so of course I will play along!
1) What is your favorite time of the day??
Although I am not really a morning person
I do love grabbing my coffee and sitting on the deck
listening to the birds
taking it all in and preparing for the day ahead
I love lazy mornings at the cottage
or Sunday mornings in the winter
snuggling in bed or on the couch
As for productive times of the day
I can get more done between 7-10 pm than 7-10 am
and yes ~ it runs in the family!
2) Where and when did you meet the love of your life?
Trevor and I met over 20 years ago ~ actually it is closer to 30 now...
he hung around with my cousin
he was at all our big family functions
weddings, funerals, big celebrations
he was part of the family even then
there was always a spark ~ an interest
but he moved to another city after we graduated
so we would see each other the odd week-ends over the summers
Easter week-end 1999 my cousin hosted a bonfire at his place
Trev was there
both of us spent the night and stayed up talking for most of it
we met for coffee again the following Friday
and have been together ever since
3) What 3 words would your friends outside the blogging world
use to describe you?
Good heart ~ Dependable ~ Loveable
(I give the best hugs)
4) What country would you like to visit and why?
I dream of travelling the world
seeing sites I have only seen on TV or in photos
there are parts of the USA I want to go
Vegas is in the planning stages for the spring
I want to explore my own country
take another trip to the west coast as I have been
but Trev has not ~ so to see it through his eyes would be spectacular
Africa for a safari would be on the wish list
if I could only pick one right now
it would be the United Kingdom
I have family in Northern Ireland
and would love to go back
and of course could not go overseas without going to London
to see a very special lady
5) What is your favorite dish to cook?
I make a mean breakfast
scrambled eggs with all the fixins'
I am a good brunch girl
for a main dish it would have to be
my stuffed pasta shells
they are always a hit!
6) Salt or sugar?
Chocolate is a major food group for me
so I would have to say sugar
I do love my salt too ~ hello chocolate covered pretzels
or Smarties and popcorn
7) What are your must have make-up or beauty items?
Hands down would be my lip balm
I live for lotions & potions
for my face ~ good old Oil of Olay
mascara and a compact
8) What are your favorite flowers?
Lilacs, Cosmos, Pansies for their little faces
9) What do you think are your worst vices, honestly?
(yes ~ I know ~ I know)
not getting nearly enough exercise
watching way too much TV
spending too much time in front of the computer
that was brutally honest!
10) At what time of your life were you the happiest and why?
I would like to think right now...
but are we not always looking for something more
something we think is better than what we have
in this moment?
I had a great childhood
memories of camping trips
week-ends spent at my grandparents farm
trips to Ontario
I had young parents ~ they were very involved in our lives
I would not trade it or them
for the world.
So thank you Simone
this one was so much fun to do!
I will pass this along to the following people:
Mikal @ Mikals Landing
Maggie @ The White Farmhouse
Carrie @ This Free Bird
Hope you had a glorious week-end!
