She Just Had to Do It!

My sister is playing tag. She just had to pick two people to tag but she decided to pick two more and I was one of them. So here are my answers to the questions:

1- What’s your staple meal (ie. what meal do you cook most often when you can’t be bothered to be adventurous)?

Breakfast: scrambled eggs and pancakes or waffles.

2- What do you want to be when you grow up?

Now that I am, finally, doing what I wanted to do (be a school teacher) I haven't thought any farther ahead.

3- What book are you reading at the moment (if any)?

"Teaching Mathematics in the Block"...our school system is going to block schedule in a few weeks. I did one semester of my internship at a school on block schedule and know I made several mistakes. This time I'll be more prepared.

4- How do you relax?

I like to sit in my recliner and rock.

5- What color are the interior walls of your home?

The lower level is mostly an off-white color. My kitchen has wallpaper--little blue and light red flowers with a border of baskets. The foyer also is wallpapered with blue and pink stripes. (That doesn't sound pretty but it is, trust me.) L's study has a grass type wallpaper with a fox hunting border around the middle and a green border. The dining room has light blue wallpaper below the chair rail and a small blue print border. The upstairs has a burnt orange color in all the bedrooms and my bathroom. (Think golden browned pumpkin pie.) The boys' bathroom is a very pretty blue.

6- What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Chocolate cheesecake.

7- What time is bedtime and getting up time?
Lately I've been going to bed around 11:00 and getting out of bed (notice I didn't say wake up) around 8:00. During work I get up at 5:00 and go to bed when I'm ready which could be anytime between 9:00 and 11:00.

8- How long do you spend reading blogs (per day or per week)?

I've noticed I spend a couple hours reading blogs when I get on the computer and start looking at not just the blogs I regularly follow but ones that those blogs follow.

Now, I get to tag a couple of people:

My niece-in-law and my high school friend's sister whom I'm getting to know through our blogs.



  1. Thanks Tina for tagging me. I'm in...come see.

  2. Chocolate cheesecake: YUM! I saw a recipe for chocolate chip cheesecake on this blog:
    I'm definitely going to try it, except I don't have a springform pan...but I bet mom's got one!

  3. Mary...if Mom doesn't and you can wait for a week, I'll bring you mine.
