A SP friend THINRONNA 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.
Where is my cell phone?
It’s sitting on the dining room table.
Yes, I'm married to Steve & we have a daughter that will be 23 in March.
Medium to Short. Dyed “Clove” to ‘blend away the gray.’
Ruth, a former High School Music Teacher, turned housewife. Mother of 6, grandmother of 7.
Bill, a retired farmer.
Your favorite thing?
Being with my family: husband, daughter, parents, brothers, sisters & their kids, & extended family of aunts, uncles & cousins.
Your dream last night?
I don’t remember.
Unsweetened Iced Tea.
What room are you in?
Between the dining room & the living room sitting at the computer desk.
Walking, cooking, baking, gardening.
Being alone when I am old.
Where do you want to be in 6 years?
Still living on our farm. Growing vegetables in our High Tunnel Greenhouse and growing grapes in our vineyard. Raising cattle and poultry.
Where were you last night?
Home watching Oprah interview David Letterman on OWN.
Something that you aren't?
I’m not very adventurous. Need to take more chances.
Morning Glory or a good, fresh blueberry muffin.
Wish list item?
New flooring in our kitchen & dining room.
Last thing you did?
Made “Baked Ziti with Pumpkin & Sausage" for our evening meal tonight.
What are you wearing?
T-Shirt, hiking shorts (Yes, I know, I live in Minnesota & it’s winter, but I run hot!) tennis shoes.
We live on a farm. So we have outdoor dogs: 3 basset hounds: Zoey, Sophie, Boris; 2 yellow labs: Max & Lily & 2 Pembroke Welsh Corgis, Micky & Teddy. Lots of cats, a miniature horse named Sissy & a miniature donkey named Claire. And several indoor cats: Parti, Dottie, Lucy & Dewey.
I have a few close friends that I either knew growing up or worked with over the years. My sisters are my closest friends.
My life is good. I am happily married with a grown daughter. I live in rural Minnesota that fits me to a tee. I love being able to go outdoors and have lots of space. I work part time as a Library Assistant. I left a banking career several years ago (30 years in accounting/banking). My husband & I are developing second careers for when he retires…hopefully growing vegetables for schools, restaurants, individuals. We built a high tunnel greenhouse, but lost that to a tornado in 2011. We are rebuilding this spring. We grow wine grapes. We raise beef & poultry for consumers, too.
Winter leaves me in a depressed state. I have to work on having a positive mood.
Today, I had a diet Pepsi with lime.
I drive a Ford F-150 Pickup truck.
Something you're not wearing?
Your favorite store?
I enjoy going to Trader Joe’s but the closest one is over 100 miles from where I live.
Your favorite color?
When is the last time you cried?
Tuesday, January 1st when I said ‘good bye’ to my daughter at the airport as she left to go back to work in Washington DC.
Favorite place to eat?
A little Chinese Restaurant or a little Mexican about 20 miles away from where I live. They are both excellent!
Favorite place I'd like to be right now?
I enjoy going to Rapid City South Dakota and seeing to Mount Rushmore.
