While perusing through the archives of this scrumptious blog (I must make these tiramisu cuppity cakes), I came across a fun little questionnaire, and since I never do questionnaires I decided to do one. Here goes...
1. When do you feel happiest? When the weather is warm, the sun is shining and I am crafting something that I was inspired to make. That would actually make me feel sort of overwhelmingly happy. The sunshine just does that to me.
2. How do you take care of yourself? I'm a vegetarian (ok, pescatarian) but I do oh so love homemade sweets. I try to stay away from anything that comes in a brightly colored package or that has some sort of cartoon-ish looking character on it. Even as a child I thought those brightly covered frozen TV dinners with the penguin on it look scary and weird. I never, ever ate one. I think making food from scratch is the best for you since you are able to control the quality of what you're eating.
3. Are you internally or externally motivated? Internally, I think you have to want to do something without the promise of being recognized or rewarded.
4. What do you do for fun? Cook with my dear husband, it's our weekend thing to do. Sunday is our only day off together so we find a yummy recipe to make, drink wine, listen to American Roots on NPR and watch old movies. I also like to find deals at thrift stores, embroider, craft, write letters to pals, and eat breakfast. I really like breakfast.
5. What intimidates you? Hmmm, I'm not sure.
6. What is something you are proud of? I'm really proud (is this like tooting my own horn?) of the work ethic that my parents instilled in me.
7. Finish the sentence: I never... want to eat goat cheese or go on a cross country bus trip EVER AGAIN!
8. Favorite vacation spot? My grandparent's house, it has been the one constant in my nomadic life and I love them so much.
9. Today is a (rate from 1 to 10) Around a seven I guess, nothing too grand but it is getting warmer. Yay spring!
10. Finish the sentence: If you knew me really well you'd know... I think I was born in the wrong time period. In fact I'm off by about sixty years. Yep, sixty. No television sets, computers, cell phones or internet for me. I'd be totally cool not to have any of these things, this blog included, and to live in a small town where my primary mode of communication was talking to a person face-to-face. Everyone would know me and I would know everyone. My occupation would be a farmer who made crafts. I would have cows, and chickens and lots and lots of vegetables. *Sigh* My heart is pining away for the farm I never had and the people I never knew.
