ABC's of Me

Brianna tagged me, so here it is!

Do you like to write?

Yes. I mostly like writing poetry. But I also like writing fiction, though what I have is NOT of printing quality.

Favorite books?

Narnia, Bible, Fairy Tales (Grimm's, Hans Christian Andersson), old mysteries (Poirot, sherlock holmes) Anne of Green Gables, anything by Louisa May Alcott.

Do you compose music/write songs?

I've written many song lyrics. As for music, I have, but not since I was 9...

Do you like poetry?

YES, YES, YES!!!! I especially like Rudyard Kipling and, sorry Aunt Di, Robert Frost. A Midsummer Night's Dream is really good, too.

Love someone so much who made you cry?

I don't think I quite understand this question. Any ideas? Please leave me a comment...

Broken a bone?

Nope, fortunately, I escaped that one!!!

Been in a police car?

You heard about the time I was put in jail for armed robbery, didn't you ;)- it was there I learned how to lose at spades...;)

Been on a boat?

Let's see... 3 close family members in the U.S.Navy, plus 3 trips to Disney with at least 2 ferry trips each, plus a trip to Seaport in CA, plus a trip to a Navy base in Norfolk, VA...

Fallen asleep in school?

Never, shame on me if I had!!!

Did you sing today?

An easier question for me would be when am I NOT singing!!! I am always singing! Even when I'm not, I usually have a song in my head. And, thanks to God and His amazing Grace, I always have a song in my heart! My cousin said he believed I had a song for every situation!!

KFC, Popeyes, or Church's?

Never had Church's, and I can't stand KFC. Popeye's holds a special place in family tradition, though. When we moved into a townhome (when I was 5) though we had no furniture, we celebrated our first meal in our new house with Popeyes chicken and biscuts, mac and cheese and a bottle of sparkling apple cider. When I was 11, we moved into our current home (a rancher) and repeated this tradition.

Chick-fil-a or What-a-burger?

I've never had What-a-burger, But the whole family LOVES Chick-fil-a. If you haven't ever had their Honey Roasted BBQ than you, my friend, are seriously missing out!!!

Starbucks of McCafe?

According to Dr.Kent Hovind, "If you drink coffee, your children will be born naked and illiterate!"

What's your favorite time of year?

Spring: because life is new Summer: with it's bright sun light Fall: with frost and morning dew Winter: because of snowy-white!

Do you ever talk to yourself?

Talk?! I've been known to hold full conversations with myself! Strange, I know... but tell me what else is new! Hey, I've never been accused of being normal! ;)

Do you have a favorite treat you like to buy on occasion?

Ghiridelli caramel squares.

Do you believe the Bible is the literal Word of God and is infallible?

No doubt in my mind WHATSOEVER!!! I believe that God did tell men what to write without changing their personal writing styles.ex: Peter, an un-educated fisherman, wrote God's Word in simple, everyday words and grammar, while Paul, an extendedly and in-depthly (is that a word?) educated Pharisee (Master on Moses and the Prophets) wrote in a far more advanced style. I believe God's Word is from eternity past to eternity future and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it. World without end, Amen and Amen.

What's your favorite sport?

Baseball- because it's the only one I understand!!!

What color is your ipod?

Light blue and I keep in in a lime green leather case. I have a third generation nano (the silver-backed square ones).

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Anywhere and everywhere, but especially Europe. And Israel.

If you could go to any fictional place, where would you go?

Narnia, Telmar, Colorman, the 7 Isles, the Lone Islands, All the way to Ramandu's Island, Aslan's country. (Only those who have read Narnia will understand any of this!!!)

Do you love to write or do you just like writing? Or do you write at all?

I just like writing, but I love writing poems.

What do you want to be when you’re a grown up?

Whatever God has planned...

Favorite animal?

Cats, all cats any cats, from domestic to a Begal Tiger!

Favorite song?

See the question "Did you sing today"

Do you like school?

"Oh, I'm ALL about this." Guess the movie this quote is from to win brownie points!! Mom and nana- you don't count...:)

Are you a people person because I’m getting the idea that you are?


Do you like to talk?

I've been told so, yes.

Favorite food?

I'll eat anything but snails, neck and organs. Oh, and blood sausage!


Narnia, poetry, reading, sewing, piano.

Favorite author?

C.S.Lewis, Agatha Christie, God, Kipling, L.M.Montgomery, Louisa May Alcott

Favorite weapon?

Bow and arrows. these can be strong and feminine. And I don't only like them because Susan has one. They remind me of the verse in the Bible (it escapes me just now where it is: I think Proverbs?.) it says, and I am paraphrasing here, that children are like arrows in the hand of a strong man. Blessed and happy is he who has his quiver full.

Is this a fun tag or are you getting bored?

Fun. (yawn) ;)
Do you like Hannah Montana and all those girly people and movies like Highschool Musical?

Absolutely NO. I am opposed to any so-called role model who dresses like a, please forgive my language, a harlot. I am sorry if you do like those people; but I believe as a Christian it is my duty to speak out against evil symbols being raised up for our little ones to follow.

What are you scared of?

Failure, but not much else. Oh, and spiders, but only big ones.

Favorite flower?

Irises or tulips or sedums.

What is the expression on your face?

Normal "I'm staring at my computer" blank expression.

Color of your eyes?

I've had people call them blue and others say that they were green. I'll leave it up to you to decide.

In order to keep the fun going, I'll tag: Lizzie and Jo!

Back in Blogland!!

It feels soooo good to be home!!!!
Vacation was, as usual, a piece of heaven so it will be hard to get used to a regular schedule again. we're heading back out the door to visit a dear friend in Ohio tomorrow. And when we get back we will begin school, then Mom leaves for Italy! When mom returns, we'll have two days until Thanksgiving and then comes Christmas, New Year's and Pa's and Nathaniel's Birthdays!!!!!! After all that, the time will thin out a bit. So, thanks for reading I'll see you all in March!! ;) Just kidding, I may be able to fit in some blogging in early November, right before Mom leave and after we get back from Ohio and settled. Maybe mind you... :) :) :)
I had a nice surprise waiting when we came home. My costume won a 2nd place ribbon at our county fair!
Now, I have question to ask my readers, merely out of curiosity. I'm going to place here a picture of a painting that hangs in our vacation rental house. Please go to my sidebar and tell me what you thinkvia a vote. I won't disclose what I think of it until the time for voting has ended.
Here is the picture:
