Angela at My Year Without Spending has tagged me with a very special award.  I am honored to receive it, and happy to share the information that is requested of me once accepted.  According to the 'rules', I am to share 7 things you wouldn't necessarily know about me.  Here goes:

  1. I do not like drinking milk.  Never have, really.  I can have milk in things, but just can't stomach the thought of sitting down to drink a glass of milk.  Yuck.  Comes from growing up milking goats, I think.
  2. I wish I was a dancer.  I love how they move, how they walk through space.  Long legs and graceful bodies are just glorious to watch.  Wish I could do that, but chose music with my short legs instead.
  3. I want to write a book.  Someday I want to publish.  I don't know what it will be about, but I really want to write one.
  4. I do not like dirt on my hands.  I looooove to garden, but can't stand the feel of dirt on my skin, especially when muddy soil dries on my hands.  I really can't stand it when it gets under my nails.  Makes my skin crawl.  Kinda strange for a gardener - don't ya think?
  5. I always wanted to have many many children.  I have 2 wonderful boys and I wouldn't change that for the world.  But as a child, I always thought I had a minimum of 6 kids. (yikes!)
  6. I would like to live in a house I built myself.  Made of recycled material, wood, glass, etc, I would love to design and build something that would keep me safe, warm, cool and dry for the rest of my days.  Perhaps I'd have a little garden out back and a few animals.  I'd enjoy the quirkiness of the place, and know there was nothing else like it anywhere.  It would have to be off the grid, of course.
  7. Lastly, I wish I could speak another language.  Any other language (beside music).  To be bi-lingual would be dreamy.  Traveling to another country has always made me anxious.  Going somewhere where I already knew the language would be terrific!  A good language to learn would be french, spanish or german.  Or portuguese.  Or argentinian.  
Now, for the second part of this award... I get to pass on the love!

I HATE Milk too! Other than with cereal, which i rarely eat and perhaps a small glass with a big gooey piece of chocolate cake, you can count me out. I think i get my dairy intake from cheese and half and half, which probably doesn't

i'll be posting my 7 things.... :) thanks for including me.
