I received a Blogger Tag from Jolie at : https://joliesattic.com/
Jolie is a wonderful person and I love her blog; it’s so fun and interesting.
So here I go with the questions:
Question 1: How tall are you?
5’2 3/4 inches. I’ve always wished I was taller so I could eat more. Lol
Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent?
I once wrote a comic strip about two dinosaurs. I was very good at it. People thought it was funny. But I read about what happens when you sell a comic strip. You have to fly to the newspaper and give interviews to the media. Yeah, no. Aint gonna happen. Lol
Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
Posts that are waay too long. But I’ve been guilty of that myself a few times.
Question 4: What’s your biggest non-related blog pet peeve?
When I read about the rich oppressing the poor.
Question 5: What’s your favorite song?
That changes over the years. Right now I have two songs I listen to regularly. “Be It Unto Me,” and “Be Glorified.” They are both sung by Don Moen, who has been a huge blessing to me through his music.
Question 6: What’s your favorite social media website?
Facebook, without a doubt. I can keep up with what my family and friends are doing. Also, I have learned some interesting things from other people’s posts.
Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your time when you’re alone?
I like to read and do crosswords when I’m alone. I love reading blogs. I find people so interesting. It feels sacred to get to know another human being.
Question 8: Whats your favorite junk food?
Ice cream with chocolate sauce.
Question 9: Do you have a pet or pet(s)? If so, what kind and what are their names?
I had a dog until we had to move out of my daughter’s house and got an apartment. We left the dog with our granddaughter, Faith. She is happy with Faith and family. Her name is Leia, after the Princess of fame. She is a Lahasa Apso.
Question 10: What are your number one favorite non-fiction and fiction books?
Non-fiction: Man’s Search for Meaning, by Victor Frankl. It’s the story of his life during WWII, when he was in a concentration camp. Fiction: To Kill A Mocking Bird. I read it when I was young and have read it a few more times.
Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product or tool?
Ponds face cream. I’ve been using it since I was in my twenties and I have very few wrinkles. However, I have a chubby face, so that may have something to do with that. Lol
Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
When I posted on Facebook about my gay sister and how God is helping her and put it on a friend’s wall by mistake. The friend is an old-time Evangelical Christian and I’m sure I embarrassed her with all her friends. But she was so gracious. When I found my mistake, I wrote her and apologized. She said I am always surprising her. Lol She is a lovely woman. She kept that post on her wall for days.
Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life what would it be?
Easy: Coke or Pepsi. Love them both.
Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?
“Notorious,” which stars Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman. As a girl, I slept with a picture of Cary Grant under my pillow.
Question 15: What was your favorite lesson at school?
Oh how I hated school. Never had a favorite. Hated all of it. Lol
Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
I live in Canada, and I would stay here. I would love to live by the ocean, so anywhere along the coast of British Columbia. I live inland now in Kelowna, BC.
Question 17: PC or Mac?
PC and Tablet. Love the tablet.
Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
Hubby keeps buying me woodworking tools for my hobby. He surprises me with them. I now have 4 different kinds of saws if you need to borrow one.
Question 19: Favorite celebrity?
Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?
Everyone I follow.
Question 21: Who is your biggest inspiration?
Question 22: What is your favorite blog to read?
I couldn’t pick just one.
Question 24: Are you in education or do you work?
I’m retired after years of raising my children, babysitting other children and then my grandchildren.
Question 25: One thing you are proud of?
One time, I flew down to a sister’s place in Florida. She had to sell her house and move because she was too sick to work any longer. I’m proud of the great job I did on her house. Cleaned and painted it. My mom came and helped and my sister did what she could. She sold the house quickly.
I am now supposed to tag people. Well, I would like anyone who follows me to do this Blogger Tag. I’d love to know more about all of you.
