Simple As Your ABC's

Another post from the past that I thought would be fun to share!

But first let's pick a winner from the vase....

And it's Happy Cottage Quilter!

This is the apron of the day that I will be sending her!
There is an under layer of organza but actually it's reversible.

This post was from May 2009:

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!

Well, a couple of things have changed since then. Of course I am older now.
My sweet dog went to puppy heaven and I haven't had back issues for years now!
I was in a car accident a few weeks ago... and my car is history!
Oh, and even though Z is for Zoo. I really don't like zoo's. I think that they are just
pretty prisons for wildlife. 

Leave a comment and I will have one more apron to giveaway this week. 
Then I will be looking forward to the AYOS parade!

I pretty impressed with how much we have in common; twin boys, beffy truck, accounting at a bank and make a fabulous quiche and of course fabric and quilting. H
Thanks for the ABC's, i loved it. Have a great day.

As I look at your postings all I can say is, the more things change the more they stay the same…and that can be a good thing. Congratulations on your anniversary and thank you for contests.

I enjoyed reading your ABC's as I wasn't a follower the first time around. I agree with you about both common courtesy and zoos.
