A SP friend WINFIELD28 shared this on her page and it was really nice getting to know her a little better. So, I thought I'd share it with any of my friends who would like to know me better, too.
Here goes!

in my pocket.

Yes, Married to Roger for 31 years.

Your hair?
Medium to long. Medium brown with natural shine.

Your mother?
Ruth, my wonderful, loving, caring Mom who passed away in 1994. I miss her still so much.

Your father?
Elmer, my loving, caring Dad who passed away in 1997. Worked at Boeing Aerospace over 35 years. I miss him too so much.

Your favorite thing?
Being at home with my family.

Your dream last night?
I was back home growing up and my Aunt and Uncle and cousins were all over for some occasion. To this day, we're still all very close.

Favorite drink?

SP, exercising, quilting, embroidery, flower gardening, shopping, trying new recipes

Your fear?

Still dairying and growing veggies and having beautiful flowers.

Where were you last night?
Right here on SP!

Something that you aren't?
I’m not very adventurous. Need to take more chances. I get scared easily.

Mmmm, a good fresh, warm blueberry muffin.

Last thing you did?
Made a fresh pot of coffee.

Denim skirt and pull over sweater.

We have our dairy, so lots! Dairy cows, heifers, bull calves, farm cats and 1 farm dog, Hope, our English Springer Spaniel.

I have a lot of close friends all over.

Your life?
Life is good! Am spoiled actually! I have everything I could ever want! I have a loving husband, two grown children, a farm that is prosperous. Ever since I was little, I dreamt of living in a big white farmhouse one day and I've had just that since 1982!! I've been a stay-at-home mom and have worked on the farm in the meantime.

Your mood?
Am usually a very happy, bubbly kind of gal. Of course, things can come up to change that, but as a rule, that's my make-up.

Missing someone?
Grandparents, parents, sister, aunts, and uncles.

I love my water and coffee.

Your car?
2006 Hundai Azera

Wine, but I have to also say a deep perriwinkle.

When is the last time you cried?
Yesterday because of Rheumatoid Arthritis pain. I'm better today though. = )

Applebee's with their under 550 calorie menu. My husband doesn't like going there though because of their lack of fries! ha! He likes a normal amount plus!

Awww, Hawaii or Florida!

    Emjoyed reading this - thanks for sharing! I love Applebee's under 550 menu, too, and DH loves their fries. We don't go there often, but enjoy it a couple times a year. I'm glad the RA is better today, and hope that continues!

    YAY! I love learning about people. It's so very interesting! And you can come stay with me in Florida whenever you want! I am right near the GA line, but we do have beaches all up the coast and not too far away - like 20 minutes, max!

    And I will come to your farm because I do miss our dairy cows we have in western NY state. Mom was terrified of them and I remember her going out into the field to find my Dad and making me or my brother stand in between her and the cows! Nope, she was not a fearless mom at all! She figured that the cows wouldn't "attack" a child.

    Now, Karen, have you ever seen a cow ATTACK anyone that didn't piss it off? Me neither, but you can't tell her that at all!
