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.

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

Ten Things of Thankful: Dad's Influence Edition

Infant-me, sitting on the wood floor, looks up at my dad, who is sitting on a brown sofa and smiling down to me Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement.  I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me. My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis. When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a paren

Ten Things of Thankful: Summer Strawberries and Procrastinated Projects

A brilliantly-colored dark pink and purple fuchsia blossom You would think that by the time a person reaches my age, she would not be surprised by the passing of time, yet I find myself nearly constantly amazed that a certain amount of time has passed--whether that be a week, month, year, or couple of decades. Earlier this year, I planted a garden. Yesterday I harvested my first strawberry. Earlier this year, I also planted fuchsia starts, and now the flowers are blooming. How is that possible? (And why am I surprised?) Sometime around the turn of the century (and it still seems strange to use that phrase about the year 2000), we bought a circa 1935 dresser. It needed some TLC, but had a cool curvy front. This past week, I finally got around to applying some Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax, and now the dresser still looks old, but not dilapidated. I still need to apply some hide glue to some loose pieces, but I'm counting progress as a win. For as long as I can remember, I've be

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.
