Day One: 30 Days of Me

Day one of the 30 days of me blog challenge is supposed to be a recent picture and 15 interesting things about me.

This was taken Saturday, Nov. 20 with my two daughters, Natasha and Maria.  I am on the far right. (As if you couldn't tell that I am the old one.)

 


Now for the 15 things about me:
1.  I am the youngest of three children, (yep, the baby as I have always been reminded.  Now that my brother, sister and I are in our 50's that is kinda to my advantage).
2.  I have never flown on an airplane.
3.  I have 8 grandchildren.
4.  I love to be creative but can be quite messy while I am creating.
5.  I have lived in either Washington or Oregon my whole life.
6.  I LOVE nuts in cookies and fudge.  In fact, if there are more nuts than other ingredients, all the better.
7.  I get easily bored with my house and therefore am always moving something around.
8.  I am the queen of spilling food down the front of me while eating  (just ask my daughter-in-law).
9.  I love to put together jigsaw puzzles,  play board games and cards, especially pinochle.
10.  My favorite sport to watch on tv is ice-skating.
11.  I enjoy singing in choirs or groups as an alto.   I don't have what you would call a beautiful voice but I can harmonize pretty well.
12.  I  really miss my dad.  He passed away almost six years ago.
13.  I can whistle super-duper loud using my fingers.  That is how I used to call the kids home for dinner when they were small.
14.  I am an admitted reality tv junkie.
15.  I really enjoy designing landscapes.  I am constantly looking at people's yards and looking for ways to improve them.

Miss Connie, we have a few things in common. Never been on a plane and I'm not going to unless they sedate me. I'm the baby too, my shorter than me brother calls me his little big sister. haha. And can I just say I wish you lived closer so you could tell me what to do with my yard. lol.

So, if you come visit me, you could take your first plane ride. While you're here, you can redo my landscape and after dinner, we'll play pinochle (we only get to play about once a year, so I'm not very good). I'll put nuts in my banana bread and we can munch on that while we play. Sound like a plan?
