So here I was blissfully hiding in the shadows and crocheting my life away, totalling ignoring my responsibility to my blog and all the lovely peeps that have been so kind to continue with me through my wishy-washy way of blogging. I was suddenly reminded (kicked in the butt) of certain peoples loyalty and was slapped with a tagging. LOL! My dear friend Spot has been reading my occasional posts and has been a true blue friend on facebook. She is all up to date on how much time I have been spending with my hook and yarn and decided it was high time I focused on something else, hence the tagging. LOL! Isn't she just the sweetest! Seriously, I really do need the break.♥♥

So lets see...where did I put those questions. Hold on, still looking...Ah, found them!

#1...If you could go back in time and relive a moment, what moment would it be?
Okay I have thought long and hard about this one and it has to be this...
Hubby and I had gone to visit my grandparents in Florida. Nana lived with them and was sitting in her chair crocheting..blind. I sat down on the floor in front of her chair and watched. Then she proceeded to teach me a particular crochet stitch. It was the first time I ever had the chance to really be close to her and feel that bond of learning something from my Nana in something that we both enjoyed doing.

#2...If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?
I'm not really sure there is anything that I would change cause that would alter the reality I live in and also alter me. There are things that I regret but in all of those things were a lesson learned. If I was to change the outcome of things, then I would have changed to lesson I got from it. Although...I could stand to go back and change that hairdo I was sporting in the eighties! LOL!

#3...What movie/tv character do you most resemble in personality?
I would have to say this would be a mixture of Ma Ingalls or Ma Walton. Very down to earth and strong, tough and at times even rugged and yet the homemaker with heart.

#4...If you could push one person off a cliff and get away with it, who would it be?
Wow what a question! I'm sorry to say, but I don't have anyone that I hate that much to end their life just for my satisfaction. Now if you had asked me that question back in my teens or early twenties I might have been able to come up with an answer. Thankfully I learnt that if you really dislike someone that much and can't get past it, it's best to stay away from them for both of your sakes.

#5...Name one habit you want to change in yourself?
Just one? Hummm...Give me a minute! I'm thinking...
Balance. I have a really bad habit of not being able to balance more than one thing at a time. Blogging, crocheting, photography, sewing... so on and so on. I wish I had more balance in my life to accommodate all of my loves, everyday.

#6...Describe yourself in one word.
I can't do it. I am a woman of many words. Lets just say I am a 50's housewife with a slight twist of modern. I am my grandmother.

#7...Describe the person who named you in this meme, in one word.

#8...Why do you blog?
For many reasons...To have a record of my life, to have a place to get it all out(vent), to have a place to keep family and friends up to date.

Now here is the part that everyone dreads..Hahaha (evil laugh)!
I am to name some folks to bestow this on. This might be harder than I realised considering my lack of blogging has lost me alot of readers. So in my good person fashion, I am NOT going to tag. I'm a meanie arent I?! You was soo looking forward to getting your name called out, weren't you? LOL!

Instead I will just direct you to some of my favorite peeps.

Consider yourself tagged if you really want to be.

Hmmm - so now that means I need to get back to my blog and give it some attention, huh?
Thank you for the mention!

Good answers! I loved this one because it had really in depth questions and I love to see how people answer them.

That part about your Nana was priceless! Crocheting blind must take some serious skill since I can't barely crochet and I can see!

Thanks for the link and the sweet words!

Thanks for the link! I like your answer to #6. And the story of your Nana - sweet ♡

I LOVE your answers...and don't change a thing about you because you are wonderful just as you are! I like your # 3 answer...I think that is the perfect kind of person to be, down to earth, strong yet tender. Thanks for the shoutout!

Thanks for the shoutout! I love the part about your Nana. I think it's wonderful that you got to spend that time with her!

Thanks for the shout out! I don't think I would push anyone over a cliff either, unless they bounce. Then it wouldn't be too bad, I could probably make money off the next extreme sport and still get my revenges. :-)

I love your answer for #2 because I agree with it so absolutely. Everything you experience in your past contributes to who you are, where you are, your whole history is shaped by it.

Thank you for the tag! Although with my sporadic blogging, I make no promises. :)

I'm so glad you didn't name me as the person you wanted to push off a cliff! My hubby would probably answer my name to that one right now. lol It's been so long since I've hit the blog or commented, but I'm still reading. :)

Thank-you for tagging me!

Sorry it took so long to comment. I saw it on my phone, but I can't comment on blogger via the iPhone, it always messes up!

Love that Spot got you out and about!
