Mary over at Neat and Tidy got tagged for a survey. After reading her answers - I decided to throw my answers out to the web.
1) Did you pick your blog name for any special reason?
I sat here with blogger up and my mind grinding. I drifted off in thought and started looking at the river. Just couldn't think of anything better than Riverside Stitching. I had seen Lee's blog at this point and knew she was Lake Stitcher so I figured I could be Riverside.
2) How long have you been blogging and why did you start blogging?
Just had my 2nd blogversary last month. I had heard of blogging and knew nothing about it. I googled stitching blogs and Spinster Stitcher popped up. Coni has a wicked sense of humor and I was hooked by her blog immediately. So much so that within a few days I had read all of her posts and wanted to blog too.
3) What's your favorite dessert?
Chocolate. And white chocolate is not chocolate to me. It can be a cake, pie, candy, brownie, ice cream - I'm not picky when it comes to preparation.
4) Coffee or Tea?
Neither. I've drank exactly 3 cups of coffee in my life. Way back when - I happened to partake in a few (ha) too many adult beverages. We were at a wedding reception and my best friend tried to sober me up. This was a Saturday evening - I didn't become aware of my surroundings until Monday afternoon. Yeah, and Dad thought I had the flu. Really??
5) What's one thing on your bucket list?
I would love to go to British Columbia to the Wickaninnish Inn. I've seen the Inn on a travel show and again in some magazine. I went so far as to tear the article from the magazine. DH wants to go there for our 25th anniversary in December 2013. Who am I to say no??
6) Your last wonderful book you read?
Dandelion Summer by Lisa Wingate. I guess the book hit a cord with me because the main character felt he was done with life and he didn't know what his purpose was anymore. I'm there - my children are basically grown and don't need 'mommy' anymore. I've retired from my job. I feel restless and wonder what is in store for my future.
7) Do you have time for your nails?
Time yes - inclination no. Love my nails to be done but when they come off - I hate the way they feel. They are grown to a manageable length and I do have some polish on them. I don't wear gloves when digging dirt or painting. Not high maintenance at all.
Like Mary I could tag more bloggers but I'll let you decide if you would like to do this. Let me know - I'd love to see your answers.
My son was inducted in the the National Honor Society this evening. It was a proud moment to stand there as a former member watching my boy become a new member.
A bit tired tonight. But need to stay up or I won't be able to sleep. Guess that's why I am a little retrospective tonight.
