Question #29

Did you smile or frown more today?



Today I think I frowned more than smiled.

I did smile . . .

 . . . but mostly I waffled about whether or not to cancel sketch club tonight because of the winter storm forecast.  Finally, I just decided to stop worrying about it and just pushed it to next Monday.

Then all I had to worry about was the winter storm.  Dear hubby was heading back on the road this afternoon . . . right into the storm.  I secretly wished he would call into work with some serious but quick-healing disease.  Nope.  So I packed him lots of extra food and made sure he had all his medicines and winter gear.  Off he went into the storm . . . sigh.

But there were a few smiles.  Enjoying leftover pie and coffee while watching a favourite show together was nice.

How about you?

Question #28

Think about yourself as a child. What personality traits that you have now were already apparent as a child?


As a child I was very shy.  My younger sister always made the first move towards friending someone new in the neighbourhood or school.  Once I was comfortable with a new person, I would lose my shyness.  

I am still like that today but I try to be the person who holds out her hand and says "Hi, I'm . . . "  Sometimes I can't make myself do that but most of the time I can now.

Question #27

What would the title of your biography be and why?


I have a few ideas.

It was a dark and stormy night.

If it hadn't happened to me I would never have believed it.

The Stomach Turns.

Why.

I never knew I was short until my kids grew up.


But the winner is . . . 

In My World

This is a phrase I say very often.  It became the name of my blog.  And then it became my email address.  It is taking over my life . . . LOL.

Scrapbooking finishes from March 2015


Hal read the instructions and Cam put the new sofa bed together.

I guess I should have retaken the photo once I removed the post it note and added the real date . . . Ooops.







I love sewing on layouts, especially with my Sew Easy tools.




























Question # 24

Do you own or carry anything that you consider a good luck charm?


I personally don't carry anything that could be considered a good luck charm. I wonder why that is?

How about you?
