Main Course
Do you shop online? If so, name some sites you like to browse for goodies.

eBay and Amazon – my favorite places in the world to shop (not counting thrift shops, of course). As my postal clerk says of Amazon… “That place just makes me weak in the knees”.

I am opinionated and all, but I can’t see how to answer this question at all – there are just too many options for me!

Tell about a time when you had to be brave.

When having my babies. I know I’m a whimp, and every mom does it, but that was the scariest thing I’ve ever done, with the possible exception of leaving my oldest with her great grandparents and my siblings while my parents took us out to eat for Dan’s birthday. I know – it’s silly. But that doesn’t make it any easier!

Soup
Which upcoming movie are you excited about seeing?

I have no idea what’s out there! I do have a DVD of Nero Wolf in my library bag, and I am excited about that, does that count?

Salad
Name an item you try to always have on hand.

Juice. Neither Dan nor Kinsley seem to be able to drink plain water. Juice is right up there with TP as far as stuff we can’t live with out.

Main Course
Imagine the most relaxing room you can think of. Now describe it!

The living room of our dream tree-house. It’s open to the kitchen and dining room and has fluffy tan colored sofas and ottomans. It has a neat and organized play area for the girls, lots of good books, lots of sunlight, and open windows for the spring smelling air to come in. There would be no mosquitoes and no clutter…

Dessert
On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being highest), how spiritual or religious are you?

That’s a loaded question! Religious isn’t a good word as far as I can tell. It’s been has too many negative associations. And anyway, I believe that everyone is religious. Even a self proclaimed atheist. As far as I can tell the definition of the word is:

1. Having or showing belief in and reverence for God or a deity.
2. Of, concerned with, or teaching religion: a religious text.
3. Extremely scrupulous or conscientious: religious devotion to duty.

Number one – I, of course, believe in God. I also believe that every single person does believe in a god, though some choose to believe that they are god, as that makes everything easier.

Number two – I hope that I am teaching “religion”. My greatest desire is to see my little girls desire to walk with God.

Number three – I am not extremely scrupulous. In fact I find it all to easy to forget everything I claim to believe and just go with the flow because it’s generally the easier thing to do, thereby setting myself up as god, and treating my desires as divine.

When you were a child, which crayon color was your favorite?

Blue. All shades of it!

Soup
On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest), how likely would you be to change jobs if it required you to move?

Since I don’t have a job, that’s a difficult question to answer. But I do know I’d love to live in a new place just for the excitement of it all, but it’d be very hard to leave this town where my family is and has been for generations. I’d have to say and even 5.

Salad
Take all the numbers in your birthday and your phone number and add them up, one by one. What’s the total?

99

Dessert

Pedialyte, Jello, Yogurt and Fruit Juice. All in an effort to make my tiny sick baby well again.

When you travel, which mode of transportation do you prefer?

Great question! When I was a teen-ager, we drove cross-country in an RV, and I loved it. Since having kids, I HATE traveling by car. I’ve only flown once, and I loved it, and I also loved a trip I once took via Amtrak. So, we’re trying to decide which way to go for this summer’s vacation. It’s looking like it’ll be plane, so far…

Soup
Have you ever met a blogging friend in person?

No, but there are several I would love to meet!

Salad
When was the last time you were really, really tired?

The night before last. I laid down to nurse the baby at about nine o’clock, and didn’t even wake up whan Dan put her in bed about two hours later!

Main Course
If you could have dinner with any one fictional character from a book or movie, who would it be?

Fictional? That’s no fun! I would love to have dinner with C.S. Lewis, George MacDonald, Alexander Whyte and J.R.R. Tolkien, if it could be non-fictional characters. What a dinner party that would be! Fiction – I think it’d be Bertie Wooster.

Dessert
Fill in the blank: One day, I hope to see _______________.

Scotland.

Who is your favorite news anchor/reporter? Why?

Yikes! I never knew that people could have a favorite news anchor person. Isn’t that like having a favorite villain, gangster or politician?

Well, I am in the middle of an Agatha Christie novel called The Third Girl and I just finished Lemony Snicket’s seventh book The Vile Village and currently I am listening to the audio book At Home In Mitford while I sew, do chores etc. So, what was the question again? Oh yeah, what is the NEXT novel on the list. If the library has it, I’ll be reading The Hostile Hospital next.

Dessert
