Your unique talent – I’m good at packing.
I’ve moved over 30 times in my life (some across the country, some across the
street) so I can pack a house and load a trailer like an expert.
Share something not many people know about
you – I love shoes and jewellery. I’m at 45+ pair (and I donate them when I get
tired of them) and I feel naked without a necklace and earrings.
Which best describes
Are you a “pet person” or prefer no pets?
Sorry, I don’t really care for pets. Too much work. I’m glad to be an ‘empty
nester’ and I’m not about to take on what is essentially is another child!
Would you rather travel or stay at home? My
bio-polar nature says both, in equal parts. J
Do you read more or write more? I probably
write more, but I am an avid reader, too. It depends on my mood.
Prefer cake or pie? I definitely like pie

Are you part of a big church congregation or
a small church? Our church is small.
Would you describe yourself as happy or
Do you like to telephone people or prefer to
use e-mail? I like email. It’s more expedient and you can do it on your own
time. The exception is my children. I always love to talk to them.
Do you eat at home or eat out? Yikes! I’m
embarrassed to say we eat out more frequently than we should. I don’t like
cooking, so taking me out to a restaurant is always welcome.
Listen to music or prefer quiet? I love
music, but when I’m writing I find I tune out the rest of the world, so it
doesn’t really matter. I can write and watch TV, write and listen to music,
write and have a crowd around. When I’m in the zone, it doesn’t matter.
Prefer sunrises or sunsets? I love sunsets
for two reasons. First, as a prairie girl, I grew up with amazing sunsets.
Second, I’m not a morning person, so I’m usually too tired and dysfunctional in
the morning to enjoy a sunrise.
