Passing it On

Jennifer from "Ramblings of a Country Wife" posted this on her blog, and instead of "tagging" people, she said we could do it if we wanted. I've decided to post it, because I'm running dry on ideas for posts, and also because sometimes these things are a good way for people to get to know others. In fact, I just read one this morning from my sister, and learned something I didn't know about her!

Here are the rules: Respond & Rework. Answer questions on your own blog. Replace one question. Add one question. Then, tag 8 people.

1. What are your current obsessions?
Morgan horses, my imaginary farm/ranch

2. Who would you most like to have dinner with?
My Granny and Papaw, who have passed. I'd love to have dinner with them. I miss them and lately I've been thinking of a lot of questions I wish I'd have thought to ask them.

3. Last dream you had?
I don't remember sleep dreams, but if you want to know about day dreams...I'll fill your day! Mostly I "work" on my farm/ranch and raise my Morgan horses. Its hard work, but fulfilling...lol.

4. Last thing you bought?
confessions....I went to Barnes and Noble Wednesday and blew $30 on books I didn't need. I actually got $70 worth of books, but after my coupon, my membership, and two gift cards, I only spent $30 of actual cash. (forgive me?)

5. What are you listening to?
Well, I was enjoying the sound of the Colorado wind blowing through the cracked window, but now I'm listening to Malcolm on a three way call with his aunt and uncle.

6. The perfect house?
need you ask? a little white farm house way out in the country

7. Favorite holiday spots?
either my parent's house, his parent's house, or family at our house, which we've never tried, but I imagine I'd like it

8. Reading right now?
Prayer's for Sale by Sandra Dallas, and next is Blind Your Ponies by Stanley West

9. What is your favorite way to relax?
Sitting on the porch in a rocking chair or swing with a good book and a glass of iced tea. (only I don't have rocking chairs, and my swing still isn't hung, so I have to settle for sitting inside with the book and tea...still relaxing though.)

10. Guilty pleasure?
remember those books I bought in an earlier question? enough said

11. Who or what makes you laugh until you're weak?
Usually reminiscing with my mom and sister

12. Favorite spring thing to do?
Get outside without being cold

13. Planning to travel to next?
Forgive me if I laugh....lol....well this load is going to Idaho, and I imagine from there we'll either go to California or west to Oregon. Outside of work, I'm taking a 5 day trip to Tennessee in July to see family.

14. Best thing you ate or drank lately?
Last weekend....my grilled chicken and my strawberry custard pie. Not just because it was home cooking, not everything I cook is good, but this was just plain delicious!

15. When did you last get tipsy?
Its been a long time...and I never got very much tipsy to begin with.

16. Favorite ever film?
Hard to say....there are so many....probably Anne of Green Gables

17. Care to share some wisdom?
I'm not good at "deep thoughts" on the spot like this. Just don't take the small stuff for granted.

18. What item could you not live without?
my Paris and Ella....and I have nothing against Carlie Jean. I'm just not as attached to her. She's Malcolm's dog, and that was her decision.

19. Thing you are looking forward to?
Visiting family and friends in Tennessee for July 4th.

20. What's your favorite smell?
fresh cut hay baking in the sun; if someon would bottle it as a perfume I'd wear it everyday

21. What food makes you heave?
Can't think of one; I wish desserts did! Maybe I could drop a few pounds that way.

22. Favorite childhood story book?
not exactly what this question had in mind, but the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder...they are still a favorite.

23. What's your favorite animal in the whole wide world, and why?
horses....they feed my soul

Like Jennifer, I'm going to refrain from "tagging" people. If you want to copy, paste and answer in your own blog, feel free to. If you do, please comment on here so I know you did and can go read your answers!

Another piece of business.....I've received my very first blogging award, also from Jennifer at Ramblings of a Country Wife. I found Jennifer when she joined my blog as a follower. I'm living my farm dreams vicariously through her, as she writes about her new baby chicks that hatched, fishing with her son, and planting her garden.

Of course there are rules, again. You are supposed to pass this on to 8 others and include this text.

"These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers."

Unfortunately, I don't have 8 blogs to pass it on to. Most of the blogs I read are either just getting started, private, or of a personal nature, like pictures of the kids so if you didn't know the person, it doesn't really mean anything to you. So I'm in a delima. Let me think on it for a few days, and I'll get back with you.
