So Scubaknit or Pumkinhead as I affectionately call her, from Mount Robson tagged me with the latest meme that's been going around.

The Rules are:

Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1. What I was doing 10 years ago?

Wow that's a lifetime ago. 1998 was my last year teaching. That year I taught Jr. High Science and History, (I always taught Science the second class load varied year to year from History/Social Studies or Math, with one very scary year of Computer Science) I also facilitated/taught an after school art program. Oh yeah and I was the volleyball coach too.

2. What 5 things are on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order)?
  1. Organize my fiber book shelves. I'm clearing out lots of books and magazines. (stage one of this task is done I have the must keep books shelved, and numerous stacks to go through to determine their fate)
  2. Sew in the zipper on the Petal Cardi (it's pinned in)
  3. Work on few new designs (got some good things done the wheels are still turning)
  4. TRY to get some dreadlocks out of the cat's fur (I need Joe's help)
  5. Do some writing and/or drawing (blog writing doesn't count...maybe some later)
3. What snacks do I enjoy?

I'm an equal opportunity snacker. I don't have a favorite it just depends on what I feel like at the time, chips of some sort, cheese, yogurt, candy but not chocolate, fruit, and I'm pretty partial to eating deli ham by the slice.

4. What would I do if I was a billionaire?

LOL I can't even conceive this but here goes...First each kid would get enough $ for a decent but not fancy car. All education expenses of course would be paid, and each would get a yearly allowance to make sure they have a roof over their head but they'd still have to work for a living. Maybe some seed money for business start-ups. I know that sounds pretty stingy but I don't believe in not working for what you have. Joe and I would prob'ly travel a little and maybe get another house for the family to use in a warm climate. LOTS of charitable organizations would get a big helping hand and I'd provide tons of school scholarships. I'd also throw $$ into green technologies. One thing for sure we'd stay here in the Hermitage, we love it here, but I would put in another bath or two. lol

5. Where have I lived?

Jeepers, as if my first 4 answers weren't boring enough.....I've lived in Peoria, IL, Normal, IL and here at the Hermitage.....If you think of Peoria being the center of the universe, I've lived 35-40 miles to the east and 35-40 miles to the north. Scheesh.

Being true to myself, I'm going to break the rules here. I can't follow a pattern without tweaking it, nor I can't obey the rules of this game. I'm not going to tag anyone in particular everyone reading this please consider yourself tagged.

Now if you just want a list of some of my favorite blogs to read I'll oblige.

A Dress A Day
Smoking Hot Needles
Hanging by a Thread
String Theory
You Just Gotta Keep Knitting
Yarn Hog


  1. I hope to someday be able to say, "That was my last year teaching." I recently told DH he's got four years & then I'm d-o-n-e!

    So I'm tagged, huh? Well, these questions are less boring than some memes I've (not) read. LOL. ;)

  2. I'll get to it tomorrow... or Wednesday... or... ;)

  3. No chocolate!?!?! Really?!?! That's ok...I'll eat your share of the chocolate :-)

    Pumpkinhead :-)
