Random Countdown Meme

This is my first meme (I didn’t know what meme’s were until recently!) I got this one from Janet….who got it from Deb…..who got it Crazy Aunt Purl. You can get it from me if you want.

TEN random things you might not know about me:
1. I’m the baby of 3 children (all girls)
2. I’m addicted to Lost (television show)
3. My favorite color is green
4. I love the Harry Potter series (eagerly awaiting next and final book in series)
5. I am a certified scuba diver
6. I’m horribly disorganized! I attempt to be organized with do-to lists but I usually loose the list
7. I still own a record player and play vinyl records (I’m so retro)
8. My father was a musician and played with Jim Reeves
9. I’m an insecure person but hide it well behind a mask of confidence. In private, I rage a war with a little voice inside that says “…but is it good enough…" or "why bother, you’ll probably fail anyway…” I hate that little voice.
10. I have a horrendous singing voice but have an innate sense of rhythm (I wanted to be a dancer when I was younger). So don't ask me to sing...ask me to dance! ;-)

NINE places I've visited:
1. Philippines (I met my hubby at Clark Air Base…and we’re both originally from Dallas, Texas area. Go figure.)
2. Wall, South Dakota (famous Wall Drug Store)
3. Hong Kong (before ownership returned to China) Picture of MacDonald's in Hong Kong - that fast food joint is everywhere!!

4. Japan
5. Jamaica (discovered Jamaican blue mountain coffee!) Picture of me shopping at open market.

6. Crazy Horse Monument, South Dakota (I think it’s more worth the time then Mount Rushmore)
7. Carmel, California (love the art galleries!)
8. Orlando, Florida to watch Jai Alai games
9. Hawaii (we were married in Hawaii)

EIGHT ways to win my heart:
1. Ask about my daughter
2. Understand when I don’t keep in touch
3. Have understanding and compassion for disabled people
4. Volunteer at an animal shelter
5. Encourage me
6. Ask about my daughter some more….definitely the way to my heart
7. Send chocolate
8. Comment when you visit my blog (does anyone really read my ramblings??)

SEVEN things I want to do before I die:
1. Use all yarn in my yarn stash
2. Use all beads in my bead stash
3. Have my own room dedicated to my crafts so that projects can lay about without being in the way
4. Swim with dolphins
5. Wine tasting at all the vineyards in Napa Valley
6. Afford to buy a house (cottage will do) with ocean view – on the central California coast (Morro Bay would be closest to my favorite vineyard)
7. Fulfill my secret dream…’s a secret and I’m not telling

SIX things I'm afraid of:
1. Bees (stung too often as a kid)
2. Roller coasters with too many loops
3. Snakes – all colors and sizes
4. Insects with a-kazillion legs
5. Falling from great heights (no sky diving for me!)
6. Tornados (been in one – will take earthquake anytime!)

FIVE things I don't like:
1. People who think they know everything
2. Southern California traffic
3. Walmart
4. Liver

FOUR ways to turn me off:
1. Tell me my “OPINION” is wrong – it’s MY opinion and I’m entitled to have one even if it disagrees with yours (I hope my middle sister is reading this!!!!)
2. Speak or act before you think
3. Make assumptions about a person based on the way they look
4. Copy my designs

THREE things I do every day:
1. Walk the dogs
2. Read
3. Daydream

TWO things that make me happy:
1. My family
2. Creative successes

ONE thing on my mind right now:
1. The remodeling of my kitchen cabinets....going on right DH and friend. It'll be great when it's finished, but it's mighty messy right now!!

I agree with Janet, that picture of you is beautiful.
