We have SO MUCH in common, but not the Nancy Drew part. I'm a Becky Sharp gal, or Laura Ingalls. But coupons, in a craft or stationary store? Sign me up!!

1. Coffee with soy milk plus bread or rolls. Yum.

2. my vitamins

3. beach (I think), NEVER a farm.

4. Clearing out the shower drain. Is there anything in this world more disgusting?

5. I always remind people someone familiar, but they aren't sure who. My husband says I am Anne from Jane Austen's Persuasion.

6. I like socializing with one or two friends, but I need my solitude, too.

7. Hard for me to choose. There are many I like. Maybe I could pick my top 25?

8. I try to take it off, and I regret it if I don't.

9. I'd like to become a published author who makes a difference in the lives of my readers.

10. Finding things that are lost.

11. He's wonderful to talk with.

12. Fresh air, wood smoke, and coffee.

13. High standards.

14. Pray. Money makes me nervous.

15. I laugh aloud, but I have several laughs -- belly laugh, little laugh, snort, laughing with tears running down my face and gasping for breath.

16. I love stationery, journals, calendars, all things papery and dreamy.

17. I'd create a garden and have tea parties and chamber music in it.

18. frugal, very.

19. Jesus ( Is that cheating? He really is my favorite)

20. I guess being a published author could count as being famous, although I don't care for attention in general. What I want is meaningful relationships, valuable work, and a life that matters.

How fun! Lots of things I learned about you and some that we have in common like watching a movie from beginning to end, but of course you had me at cream scone and lemon curd:! :)

petra michelle; Whose role is it anyway? November 8, 2009 at 9:23 AM  

Hahaha, sometimes I'll fall asleep with my makeup on because of all of that housework! ;)

Would love to sit and eat scones and sip tea with you while watching Soomewhere in Time! One day, maybe, Janeen! :))

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! xo

This is a lot of fun and we certainly have some things in common. Do you mind if I copy and paste these questions with my answers in a blog entry at the Tea Society blog, with a link to your post?
