My ABC's

I saw that Jen, Miss Punkie Pie blog, did this over on her blog recently,
so I am going to follow along. I started this last week and since today I have a camera with a dead battery, then I think that this would be the day for:

The ABC's of Me

A- Age: 54. Yikes! Too honest?

B- Bed size: California King. I love to go to bed. My entire bedding set is from Moda Home. Ummm!

C- Chore you hate: Dusting. A never ending annoyance.

D- Dog's name: Hannah. Our Labradoodle.

E- Essential food/item: Bread. Hot fresh baked bread!

F- Favorite color: Of all time? Sage Green. Favorite color today? Shabby Pink.

G- Gold or silver: Gold in Winter and Silver in Summer

H- Height: 5'8"

I- I am: patiently waiting for Spring!

J- Job: Office admin. & accounting assistant for Environmental Consultants.

K- Kids: 3 plus 2 plus 1. I had 2 pregnancies, but had twins so, 3 children -boys. Remarried, 2 more sons (all the same age group) and now I am about to have a DIL.

L- Living arrangements: We live in a modern farmhouse style home on 3 acres. Very rural area.

M-Mom's name: Donna. You would love her.

N- Nickname: I have had several. I'm one of those people who get tagged with names and in fact Sinta is (or was) a nickname, but I made it legal once upon a time.

O- Overnight hospital stay: Lots, watching over my hubby.

P- Pet peeve: Well, manners. People need to remember manners. I'm not formal or stuffy by any means but common courtesy is important!
*** There was this receptionist at the dentist office who never would say hi or greet you in any way. I always made a point of saying hi, just to see if she ever would respond. One day I came in and after saying hi and getting no response I said...
oh, you poor thing... laryngitis? It worked. I got a greeting from then on. ***

Q- Quote from a movie: A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others. Wizard of Oz.

But on the other hand- "I'll have what she's having" is a good one... from When Harry Met Sally.

R- Right or left handed: Lefty

S- Siblings: 2 sisters. One older, one younger.

T- Time you wake up: I get up by 5 and on the weekend I sleep in until... 6ish.

U- Unique thing about your car: My car is kind of "beefy". Toyota 4 Runner. Tinted windows and the extra grills (deer protection).

V- Vegetable you hate: PEAS.
Peas are the reason I got kicked out of school (the first time).
That was Nursery School!

W- Ways you run late: I always wait until the last minute to get ready for work.
I hate to leave my sewing room.

X- X-rays you've had: MRI's are the most notable x-rays. Back problems. I always take my stuffed bunny with me to the doctors for these big events.

Y- Yummy food you make: I make a killer Fettuccine Alfredo. Second place is my Quiche.

Z- Zoo favorite: I think Elephants are amazing and Giraffe's are beautiful animals.

There I am in a nutshell!

Oh SInta, you and I have so many things in common that if I did this you would think I was copying you! Except I can only dream of being 5'8" ... :)

Lesly said...

Great post - and I love your quote, too; I used it in my speech to my daughter at her bat mitzvah.

call me crazy said...

Sherri said...

Sue said...

That was a cute blog post.

There are many things we have in common. I especially love good manners :) Seriously, how hard is it?

You enjoy your week!

Thelma said...

What a great post, thanks for sharing!! 5'8", you lucky girl! I once read for every inch in height you can carry 10 more pounds, I bet I weigh your height!!

Polly said...

I like this ABC of Me idea! I may do it on my blog , too. It really helps us get to know each other! I also just wrote about your RAK to me with sending the Tisket Tasket patterns! Come read about how awesome you are! Polly

Just Ramblin' said...

What a fun blog. Love the idea of the "ABC of me".
Especially loved the comment on "manners" and your "laryngitis" comment. Nola

Denise :) said...

LOL on the pet peeve! I'll have to keep that in mind! :)

PunkiePie said...

HA! I'm not the only one who hates peas! Nice to read more about you.

Jayne said...

Sinta, reading your ABCs is in several ways like reading my own, just as some others have said. I am a lefty who lives in a rural farmhouse and who makes great futucini alfredo and quiche! I am posting the ABCs of Me on my blog, Jayne's Quilting Room. Thanks for the fun!
