It is time again for Friend Makin' Monday. If you have a blog, I would like to invite you to answer the questions as well. Leave me a comment here, so I know you are playing. Then you can also leave a comment over at All The Weigh, so other folks can check out your answers as well. It is a fun way to connect to other bloggers.
Q & A
“Someday” by Tegan and Sarah because it’s about wanting to do something meaningful and to leave behind a legacy and something you’re proud of that you can share with others. “Walk Away” by Ben Harper marks a nice chunk of my junior year in high school when I was so dramatic and broken-hearted. I still love the song, just not how ridiculous I was during that time. A few tracks from Alanis Morrisette’s “Jagged Little Pill” represent late elementary and early middle school. She was angsty and the music a little too old for me, but it made me feel very mature and cool.
2. Share the details of one project that you’re currently working on.
I’m always in the middle of a zillion projects and stressing because with so many things going at once, things don’t get finished in a timely fashion. I’ve been working on a blanket for 2 years now…it’s a crocheted granny square blanket with yarn of a variety of colors and textures: pink, purple, green, yellow, blue, gray, etc. I wanted a colorful throw to add a pop of color to our beige couch and to have something funky and rewarding to curl up in. I’ll finish it. Someday.
3. If you could learn to do one thing overnight what would it be?
I would like to learn how to sew: vintage dress patterns and quilts, especially.
4. If you could be a fictional character which one would you be?
I want to be John Proctor in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible. He is my favorite literary character. I want his conviction and ability to forgive and spark change.
5. What’s your favorite thing about the month of October?
I love the leaves. There’s this strip on our country road where the trees create a dense canopy. In fall, they bleach to sunny yellow and start to swirl through the air. I love driving through that patch of trees. I’m also a fan of hot mulled cider, cinnamon donuts, and donning tights and boots.
6. Share one TV show that you’re embarrassed to admit you watch.
We don’t have cable. We live in the boonies. But we do watch movies every night and usually ones from our own collection. And it’s usually Harry Potter. I put in a different film nearly every night to fall asleep to. It’s like a bedtime story or something. And I probably should be embarrassed about it – especially since my students think it’s hilarious – but I’m not. I love my HP, my huh-puh, my Harry. I think I’m so attached because I started reading them in 8th grade, and we’ve grown up together.
7. Name one friend that you’re thankful to have in your life today.
Today I’m very thankful for Aaron. I think he’s on my mind because we hung out last week. We knew each other in college before we became boring adults. We sass each other. I can be my most sarcastic, malicious, and silly self, and he still loves me. And vice-versa.
8. What was the most relaxing part of your weekend?
I had a horrible migraine on Saturday and just wanted to sleep, but we had a showing at our house. To get out of the house, Kyle took us and Jazzy on a drive through the country to see all of the farm animals. I brought a pillow and blanket with me and counted sheep. Literally. And cows and pigs and horses.
9. Do you like to dance?
Love dancing! In college, we went to the club all the time. Now I dance by myself at home. Lame. We go to karaoke and dance. Lame. Kyle and I turn on music after dinner and dance together. Lame, but sweet too.
10. Share one thing that you’re looking forward to before the end of the year.
Our house selling! It just has to.
