These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

I was tagged! And since it is a new person who is new to my blog-world, I'm letting her get away with tagging me. :) This person is Momo-Mama, and I'm enjoying her blog, too. Hey, I got a MeMe from Momo-Mama! LOL! Say that three times! So here we go .....

Here are "the rules":

1.Link to the person who tagged you.
2.Post the rules on your blog.
3.Write six random things about yourself.
4.Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5.Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6.Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

6 Random Facts About Me:

  1. I am so into sweatpants lately. I'm not sure what it is, but I hate to put on "real" clothes when I have to, and I'm not a person to go into public unless I'm properly dressed. That doesn't mean dressed up, just wearing something such as, at least jeans. For whatever reason, I don't care!
  2. I am looking forward to the first real snow of the winter. I had one good one a few days ago, but it was melted the next day. I want to feel snowed in for 2-3 days, even if I could get out if I chose. I love snow, but I don't like to go out an play in it. I might go for a walk, but I don't want to get cold and wet.
  3. I would like to have the financial resources to so some serious volunteering without having to worry about gas and other things that always arise in such a position. There are so many good causes, but I'm a little hesitant to jump in as much as I would like to because of the costs. I hate being financially strapped.
  4. Speaking of being financially strapped, I am truly afraid about my future. My retirement has shrunk beyond belief, and I don't know if I can live independently as long as I though I would. It is very scary, and I wake at night with fear.
  5. I love to cook. But I hate trying to cook for one. Have you tried to alter recipes for one? Or even two? It is never the same. That is why I love the potlucks.
  6. Since my parents deaths, my siblings and I have not remained as close as we were before. We used to have a family reunion every year, and we've only had two since 2000. I miss that a lot.

Wow, that is getting increasingly hard to do. I'm such an open book in this blog .... well, in most of my life, to be honest .... that there isn't much left to tell that I haven't already. Well, OK, there are a few things, but those are never gonna be told!

I'm outta here! I'm tagging:

Caroline :) Just because I can!! LOL! OK, I owe you one.

Patti :) see above! LOL!

Beans :) Because she is on vacation and needs something to do! LOL!

Daisy :) Whose blog is private, but I love hearing about her!

Dawn :) Because she needs something to get her busy with the blog again!

Pepper :) Because clearly she doesn't have enough to fill her life, having just bought a great home!

Let me know when you post your answers. And if you really don't wanna do it, I understand. I may not forgive you, but I understand! LOL!!


  1. I'm glad to learn some facts that I didn't know.

  2. Loved reading this about you. I got to know you even better!

  3. Oh Lynilu, thank you so much for playing my game of tag instead of tattling on me to the blogging principal and telling all the other kids to never play with me!

  4. MJ, I'm generally open anyway, so it really is hard to be creative enough to come up with these things!

    Cheryl, feel welcome to take it an run, yourself!!

    Momo-Mama, hey, no prob! I'm glad you stopped by and it's part of (breaking into song) getting to know youuuuuuuu! LOL!

  5. I am so sorry that you are worrying about your financial future. It really is scary and I hope it turns around fast so life is a little easier for all of us.

    Thanks for the tag....I have already started my list and will post sometime today.

  6. Caroline, yes, it is scary. I don't expect a perfect life, but his is way over the line. sighh.

    :D Glad you're still speaking to me! And I look forward to reading it!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
