Blogger Fun!

It's been a long February, it seems.  I took my last post seriously and have been laying pretty low, accomplishing very little, trying to find my mojo as the days get longer and there is a hint that spring may be coming around the corner.

I've been tagged to join in on a little blog fun by Farmer over at Hidden Meadow Farm.

Here are the rules...
1. Post these rules.
2. Answer the 11 questions from the person who tagged you.
3. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag.
4. Tag 11 people and link them to your post.
5. Let them know that you tagged them.



Here's my answers to Farmer's questions.
.
1. are you living your dream? if not what is your dream?
No, I am definitely not living my dream because I woke up this morning and the household help has still not washed the dishes from last night's supper.
My dream is to live creatively, in everything I do.
I'm finding the little things like laundry, school meetings, dust buffaloes and needing paid wages gets in the way.

2.what are you passionate about?
I'm passionate that all children deserve a permanent family that makes them feel loved and a community that values each equitably.

3.do you come from a big family?
5 siblings and somewhere around 32 first cousins.  Normal in the 60s and 70s...pretty big by today's standards.

4.what is your favorite food?
Cheese and anything made with cheese. In my world, chocolate is a sort of cheese.

5.If you could have dinner with anyone who would it be?
George Clooney....but no one has to talk....or eat.....

6.describe yourself in seven words
angry, rubber boot wearing mama who spins

7.why do you blog?
The same reason people (mostly rural women, I suspect) had penpals prior to internet.  I like the connection to others with similar interests.  Also, I'm a frustrated writer.

8.where is your favorite place to be?
Sitting on a rock looking over the lake, surrounded by sun and pine trees.

9.what is the bravest thing you ever had to do in your life?
admitted to myself that I made a serious mistake
