Tick Tac Tag

I was tagged by Julochka on Monday. I saved the tag for today, knowing I would need prompting on my blog today (having my stent removed, doesn't make for a lovely day)
So, here are the rules:
1. Respond and rework. Answer the questions on your blog, replace one question you dislike with a question of your own invention; add a question of your own.
2. Tag eight other un-tagged people.
3. it can be an idea to post the answers together with several completely unrelated pictures. :-)
What is your current obsession? Blogging - really we are in between right now - not quite winter, but not really Spring and my brain just can't focus on anything else.
Good fika (coffee break) place? At the foot of my bed watching "my" birds. Dearest arranged a bench for me to sit and watch the 4 feeders - it is like O'Hare out there!
Do you nap a lot? I try to daily, just 20 minutes of laying down can sustain me through the day - I have even blogged about this before - here-
Who was the last person you hugged? My kids as they went off to bed
If you were a tree, what tree would you be? Sugar maple - sweet and sticky during the Spring, a useful shade tree in the summer, and a brilliant display of colors to make all happy in the Fall
Have you ever had an altercation with the police? Not really - the last officer I saw was because I rolled through a stop sign and was close to causing an accident. When he pulled me over I said "that was bad, wasn't it. I really scared myself, I am so sorry..." I went on and on. He was so flabbergasted that he shook his head and started telling me all the things I was doing right like buckling up myself and my son and so forth so on- I got off with just a warning (I should have gotten a ticket, it was bad!)Camping with GI Joe

What was the last thing you bought? Groceries -always groceries.
What are you listening to right now? The sound of dearest snoring and the refrigerator humming, cats settling in for the night, a child rolling in bed, and the keys on the keyboard seem WAY too loud, as if they may wake everyone.
What is your favorite weather? Oh, that would have to be end of August when the humidity is leaving the air and it is still 80 degrees out.
What’s on your bedside table? too much! A stack of books unread and read, tons of love letters and art work from my children especially from my girly girl, pics of dearest and the kids, a lamp for reading, two reading lights, seed catalogs, three "pinch pots" the kindergartner art project/Christmas gift, lots of dust (see too much), pony tail holders and bobby pins, a necklace I made hanging from the lamp, pencils and one pen, graph paper - way too much.Homemade chicken noodle soup

Say something to the person/s who tagged you. Julochka, my bloggy friend, we have only known each other for a bit - yet I am amazed how our blog worlds collided and am thrilled to have you part of my (blogging) life now. Yours is the first blog I read every day....
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be? That is a tough one... I haven't traveled enough to know. Right now I would say on the SW slope of Colorado, with extra land for dearest to finally hunt that elk he wants so badly. (I encourage you to link to this house - amazing!)
Name the things you can’t live without. My family, everything else is replaceable
What would you like to have in your hands right now? Money, enough to pay off our house, so the paycheck would stretch further.
What is your favorite tea flavor? Depends upon the season - winter I like warm flavors like almond and chai and spicy stuff in the summer more fruity blends. All time favorite was Celestial Seasonings Apricot Ginger - but they discontinued it.
What would you like to get rid of? All the extra clutter, especially in my laundry room and storage room.First day of Spring in Bemidji, MN - snow

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? Balize - I must see turquoise water before I die
What did you want to become as a child? a teacher - always a teacher
What do you like better, e-mail or telephone calls? depends upon the day. Sometimes emails are so much easier - but so much is lost without intonation and expression of voice - so I get in trouble a lot on emails, my sarcasm doesn't relay it just sounds wrong!View from fire tower Kabekona, MN

What do you do when you get time alone? Wander in circles, really - I don't know what to do with free time yet. I am still in the "on call mom mode" I do like to read and garden and do crafty things and I love movies... when I do get free time I forget to do things I like and tend to clean instead.
What is the next fun thing you have planned to do? We are going to a concert on Friday (dearest and I) Dearest won tickets on the radio :)
Headwaters of the Mississippi River

Tag 8 people- I just don't know if I can come up with 8 people(pain kicking in, brain shutting down). So, I will throw it out there again to whom ever would like to accept the tag. Go for it.
It is kind of fun

Dave King said...

I think you made an amazingly good job of that: so much and so potentially revealing. It made fascinating reading, but it's more than I would have attempted. Well done!

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Always great to know who is behind the blog..YOU! Glad you are feeling better...I really enjoy the scenes of MN.

Deb said...

Sounds fun! I'll try it!

Sandra said...

I love the impression of the bench and the birds. I agree with you about email, I don't always translate well either!
