Tuesday Time to Tackle: A Game of Tag

Remember how summers during childhood stretched out for so long?  We would amuse ourselves by playing games with neighborhood children.  In some ways, I haven't grown up yet.  My friend Carol, from An Oasis in the Desert, recently tagged me.  The rules of the game dictate that I answer her questions, then tag other bloggers to answer the same questions.  So watch out, I'm "IT!"


Before I start chasing you, though, here are my answers to the questions:

1.  Are you named after someone?  
      
      No, although my mom met someone named Kristi in her college dorm, I was not named after that person. 

2.  When was the last time you cried?       
       
     last month 

3.  Do you have kiddos? 
     
     5 grown ones:  2 sons and 3 daughters.  I also have 2 beautiful granddaughters! 

4.  If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? 
     
     I'd like to think so! 

5.  Do you have a guilty pleasure?
     I have a sweet tooth, but try not to indulge it too frequently.

6.  Do you like handwriting?
    I admire beautiful handwriting, but use printing more often than cursive.
7.  What is your favorite cereal?

     I'm a granola kind of girl.

8.  What's the first thing you notice about people?
       their demeanor

 9.  What's the color of your eyes?

        green--though the color seems to change depending on the color I'm wearing


10.  Scary movie or happy endings?
       Definitely happy endings
 
 11.  Favorite TV shows?
       Once Upon a Time, Studio C, X-Files reruns, Grimm  (You know, because X-Files and Grimm are happy endings shows! :-)  )

12.  Summer or Winter?

       Winter

13.  Hugs or kisses?

    I'll assume this is a chocolate question.  Kisses for sure.

14.  Do you have a special talent? 

       Funny you should ask:  
 
15.  Where were you born?
      Oregon. As the bumper sticker says, IADOREGON! 

16.  What are your hobbies?
   I enjoy many things, and run out of time far before I run out of projects.  You might find me blogging, reading, running, doing family history research, raising puppies, sewing, playing the piano, or out on a date with John. 
  
17.  Do you have any pets?

      My career-changed guide dog puppy, Drexel.  And a backyard flock of chickens.  

18.  Favorite movie?
       It's a Wonderful Life.

19.  What color is your car?
      a golden-beige color, whose official name escapes me

20.  What do you want to be when you grow up?
      I hope to be a better version of my current self. 

OK, now for the fun hard part--trying to tag other bloggers!  I have found that although bloggers love the recognition of being tagged, and they love to introduce blogging friends to their readers, they don't like their friends to feel burdened with a tag.  So, when I tag someone, it's always with the understanding that if you don't want to play, it's OK! 

I appreciate the many friendships I have made through blogging, but I decided this time I would tag three women I actually know in real life:

Julia of Julia T.B.A
Kimberly of Olive the Things 
Martha of The Book of Martha  

Go stop by their blogs and say "hi!"

  1. When I read that winter was your favorite, I actually said out loud with a squeal. As in who in her right mind would pick winter?!? But then I remembered where you live. :)
    It took me a loooong time to figure out what IADOREGON meant. In my defense, I'm completely drugged up. :)

    1. I wasn't given the option of autumn, so winter won. Everyone here seems to pick either autumn or spring as the favorite season. Summer is too hot. We sometimes get snow in winter--it's too cold to grow citrus here--but we don't get SNOW like you do.

      Sorry for the bumper sticker confusion. You get a pass. Hope your recovery is going along well and that your kiddos are being great helpers.

  3. I loved your answers! Living where you are I think winter would be my favorite, too! It gets really hot where you are at!

  4. So fun to read, Kristi, and I'd say you are the master of the "donut stack!"

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: August Arrives!

A wild sunflower shows its cheery yellow petals My teacher friends are preparing to return to the classroom, whatever that looks like in their district. In any other year, I would be getting excited about BYU's Education Week. 2020 isn't like any other year, though, is it? Ed Week has been postponed to a date TBA and changed to an online format. While I am happy that I am getting projects done around the house, and I'm generally content to live the life of a hermit, I'm literally dreaming of going to Disneyland, which makes me think I must be getting a little case of cabin fever. (I'm not usually a big dreamer, or if I am, I don't usually remember my dreams. This one was particularly funny, I thought: I was in line to get into Disneyland. In front of me in line were the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Elder Cook was having trouble and his ticket wasn't scanning. I said to the cast member, "He's OK. I can vouch fo

Ten Things of Thankful: Harvest Time Edition

  A harvest of beets, carrots, potatoes, and onions  Although I have come to love summer once again, I have always loved fall. As a child, I loved the excitement of back-to-school time. There was something so satisfying about checking off the required school supplies from the list, and the new clothes and shoes were waiting so patiently for the first day to arrive, so I could wear them. The air developed a crisp coolness, and soon it would be the holiday season.  I don't have new school supplies, nor do I have a new outfit in my closet, but I still love autumn. As an adult, September brings harvest time. I have been enjoying the bounty of the garden, and am taking mental note of what worked and what didn't, in preparation for next planting season. The temperatures are beginning the roller-coaster ride of changing seasons, and soon enough we will be celebrating holidays. One of those holidays, of course, is Thanksgiving, and what better way to prepare than to reflect back on thi
