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!)
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
Willingboro, New Jersey
Yorktown Heights, New York
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?
