Blog Post(Hows that for an inovative tittle?)

I usually don't do blog quizzes like this, but this one tickled my fancy so I said, "What the hey!" and did it!

What is your current obsession?
Right now? Hmm, the church Christmas play! Tonight is the dress rehearsal and then three nights in a row of performances! Crazy, but oh so fun.=)

What are you wearing now?
Jean skirt, my purple 70's throw back shirt(my Mom calls it that, I happen to love it!) silver bell necklace, brown footless tights and white socks with pink and green stars on them. My brown boots came off as soon as I got inside, I love being barefoot!

Do you nap a lot?
No, I get cranky after I nap........

Who was the last person you hugged?
Ro0-Roo, the Great Dane that the people I nanny for have!

If you were a tree, what tree that would be?
A Christmas tree and not one of those perfect ones either. I'm a fresh from the woods scraggly, multi colored lights, ornaments of all kinds type of Christmas tree! That is the perfect kind of tree.=)

What’s for dinner?
Last I checked it was pizza or McDonald's, healthy I know. But, we have dress rehearsal at 5pm. So, it's a fast dinner tonight!

What was the last thing you bought?
Gas! But, the last thing before that was a red scarf for my Moms stocking and the Taylor Swift Christmas CD. I love Taylor Swift and I love Christmas music so when the two got together? I had to but it.=)

What are you listening to right now?
Miss Spiders Sunny Patch Kids and a little boy munching on a blueberry Eggo

A hidden but rather useless talent:
I can peel a banana with my toes, not that I make a habit of doing it. It's just one of those random things I had to try and found that I could do it, but nobody would eat the bananas that I peeled for some strange reason!

What is your favorite weather and why?
It usually depends on my mood. The over all favorite is misty days followed closely by breezy ones. Cold or warm there is something magical about the wind!

What is one thing you have always wanted to do or learn?
To sing, but somethings just can't be taught! So, as far as something that I could actually learn.......to play a musical instrument. Unfortunately I don't have the patients to overcome my inability to do different things with my hands at the same time!

What is your most challenging goal right now?
Finishing my book! It's in the editing stage right now, though that is going much better then I thought it would. After I'm done I've got a code for a free proof from CreateASpace! I will be a printed author!!=)

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where you want it to be?
A dark brown with white trim beach cottage, on the beach of course! But, when it comes right down to it I would much rather live in any kind of house near my family!

Favorite vacation spot:
Vacation? Oh, yeah I remember those. It's been so long since I've had one! I've never been on a vacation that I haven't liked. So, anywhere with friends or family!

What movies can you watch over and over?
The Anne of Green gables movies
Anything Jane Austen
Disney movies
Pixar movies
Musicals
You know what? Pretty much anything, as long as I liked it the first time, I'm a repeat watcher and reader!

What is your favourite tea flavour?
Coconut oolong, yum!

What are you reading right now?
Oh, Danny Boy by Rhys Bowen. I love her books!

What is the landscape of your mind?
A misty mysterious place that few have ever found and even fewer have returned from! It's filled with magical creatures and snatches of song and story. The air is filled with the smells of coffee, flowers, and chocolate. Flowers and trees abound and fill the edges of the landscape. Sidewalk cafes and brown stones sit next to the three bears cottage. A hopeless mish mash of everything I've ever thought, seen, read, smelled, tasted or imagined. But, it totally works for me!

The latest quotation that you acquired for your personal collection of quotes that inspire you:
White ... is not a mere absence of colour; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black.... God paints in many colours; but He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white."
--Gilbert Keith Chesterton
White is my favorite color and I always get flack for it. This quote echos my thoughts exactly!

What’s in your pockets right now?
My coat pocket has the extra button that always comes with store bought clothes with buttons and some change. Unfortunately my skirt has no pockets, I'm just to impatient to put pockets in my clothes. I get eager to finish so always skip them!

What's your ring tone?
The Christmas Song by Alvin and the Chipmunks

Here are the rules:
