Tag, your it!

I have been tagged by Strider, and he has also tagged my sis, and she has got the jump on me... (used all my tags)

I have two new features going on here at In a Garden...

I put a play list on my blog, you have to scroll way down to the bottom if you would like to listen to some music while visiting...(you will have to turn it on)

Weekly I will be showing in my header what is growing and blooming this week in my garden.

After all this is supposed to be a bit of a garden themed blog, and this is my first real garden in about three years. Yeah!!! I am very excited by all my blossoms.

So here is my rather boring life...stuff

1. What was I doing 10 years ago:

Wow that seems like forever ago…my first born Joshua was a junior in High School playing football. I was finishing up my last year of home schooling out of eight. My daughter Megan was finishing Jr. High. And Jenna was 8 years old just starting to play sports… (She just finished playing last year as a senior with her volleyball team making it all the way to state woohoo!)

My husband and I were heavily involved with the youth program at church…I was a very busy mommy!

2. My five favorite snacks:

cheese, crackers, and wine
salads, I love veggies
chocolate…lately it has been almond joy bars?

3. Five things on my to do list today:

Relax it is Sunday

Make salmon and a berry topping for cheesecake to be served at my daughter’s house tonight for our Father’s Day get together.

Call my sis

Go to my daughter’s house and play with Puddin Toes!

Did I say relax…it is Sunday


Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

Pay off our house and buy a vacation home at the beach for family and friends to gather at.

Set up trust funds for family

I would love to think up a million ways to bless people who God would put on our hearts, especially mission work…for people who are physically, spiritually and emotionally hungry.

Travel to Europe…than South America, Vietnam, South Pacific

Buy a yacht fully manned and travel to various ports of call and give missionaries a vacation on our boat, while we droped off people to fill in for a week or two.

5. Five jobs that I've had:

House Parents for a State run home for boys
Mommy (my biggest job ever!)
Art Teacher
Bible Teacher

6. Five bad habits of mine…goll there are way more than five

Hence “looking at the glass half empty”
Exercising too little
Eating too much
Mothering my children...when it is time "to let the children go!" It is hard to stop being mommy.
Impatient when I go shopping...Yuck I hate to shop

7. Five places I've lived

Stoughton, Massachusetts
Willingboro, New Jersey
Yorktown Heights, New York
Pittsburg, Pennsylvania
Tri Cities, Washington

8. Five random things people wouldn't know about me

I am messy at heart…I keep a clean house because of my upbringing, but in my heart I want a maid…

I am fascinated by other cultures and their lifestyles

We had a refugee family from Vietnam live with us when they were brand new immigrants into this country.

Prayer and especially intercessory prayer has been a big part of my Christian life…

In high school I was a hippie, living 20 minutes from Woodstock, N.Y.

9. Five cds that I'd have to have on a desert island

This one is tough, because I am not a huge music fan; I like soft background music, or something spiritually penetrating…

Basically all music bores me after awhile…I’d rather have a sketch pad and a good supply of pencils and erasers on a desert island, maybe a little tray of water colors and a brush… for sound I am good with birdsong, and waves crashing... a little breeze through the palm trees...

10. People I want to get to know better... yes you've been "TAGGED"

I have decided to tag some of the lesser known bloggers on my list(except Cielo) The first two are my daughters...let's see if they will play?

Turning Bright in the Sea

Through a Daughter's Eyes

The House in Roses

Only in the Storm

Nana is Living the Dream!

a hippie huh? I think Ty would have been right there with you if he had lived a little earlier!

Vee ~ A Haven for Vee said...

I love these things...I'm doing mine sometime this week, too.

I am surprised by just one bores you??? That's a first. ;D

Lavinia Ladyslipper said...

So nice to get to know a little bit more about you through this post. It sounds like you threw your heart and soul into parenting,and you are right, being a mommy never ends (i.e. we can't let it go!).

Your snacks are all tempting, but I have never had an almond joy bar, they don't sell them up here!
Your to-do list: Pudding toes! She is such a little sweetie!

I like your yacht idea for your billions. And you certainly have chosen far away romantic spots...

Places you've lived...sounds like you are a New-Englander at heart...

Thanks In A Garden for a most enjoyable getting-to-know you post!

A Woman Who is: said...

Now Vee least you think I am completely uncultured...I said all music bores me after a while. I should have qualified that the same music over and over again, bores me after awhile...but then again I think I get bored too easily by many things...except flowers :}

Strider said...

Godd job. Way to submit....I mean...way to participate. Thanks for playing along. It's kind of fun to get to know people a little better.

Knitting Mania said...

Wow, I even learned a few new things about you sis!!!

Hey what happened to my call yesterday, rats, I didn't make your to do list. :(

Glad you played, sorry I took some of your tag choices.....sister's sometimes think alike!

Carey's Corner said...

It was probably mandatory being a hippie living that close to Woodstock. I enjoyed your blog and Puddin Toe is a real cuttie.

Nana Trish is Living the Dream said...

I am so excited about getting tagged I can't believe it. I will do it tonight when I get home. I am at my job and yes, I do have to do work. This is my very first time to be tagged and I feel honored. Those new pics of puddin toes are so beautiful. I especially love the one in the blanket of flowers. I could just squeeze her. Later...Trish

Make mine pink said...

I SO totally know what you mean about music - the same thing over and over again bores me silly! That's why I like to burn my own cd's.

Thanks for your comment on my blog....I will totally enjoy being "stalked" by you...bring it on!! You are a terrific friend!!! I may know you well, but I don't know you well enough because you are SO interesting and there is SO MUCH to you!!!
