TAGGED!

I have been tagged by Kate from 'Beautiful Things' to share 7 random and/or interesting things about myself. OK... here they are:1. I own more scrapbooking supplies than anyone else I know! You can see a fraction of them in the corner behind me. I have almost every gadget, paper collection, book, magazine, ribbon, and so on and on and on. Since I've been blogging , I've gotten interested in sewing and the scrapping stuff is just sitting there. I didn't feel guilty when I was using it, but now...
2. My daughter Wendy and her fiancee Darin are getting married next Spring. This is my new friend Barb, Darin's mom. She's great and I am very happy to be 'family' with her.

3. I am an 'only child'. So were my parents. I never knew a grandparent as they died before I was born. I loved being an 'only child' and had a wonderful childhood. I spent so much time playing with my dolls, creating things, and reading. I studied ballet for many years, took art lessons beginning in 2nd grade, took figure skating lessons, and had lots of friends. I was never lonesome. But, to this day, I still require a lot of alone time.


4. I LOVE DOUGHNUTS!!! I quit eating them several years ago because of the fat, sugar, etc. At a coffee one Saturday morning, a friend dared me to eat one. I didn't hesitate... inhaled it! But, I haven't had one since.



5. My oldest daughter, Kristin, was born in Germany. I was teaching school there for a year and my husband was drafted into the army. I loved my time over there and had the opportunity to see a great deal of Europe during that time. I've been back several times since. Hope to go again and maybe visit some blog friends along the way.



6. I eat a carton of lime yogurt every single morning. I never get tired of it.





7. I am addicted to Diet Coke. I especially love it from McDonalds. For some reason theirs just tastes the best. My sweet husband always brings one back for me when he's running errands. We also have a small refrigerator just filled with pop.
I don't know how interesting those facts were, but they were 'random'! Now watch out, I get to sneak up on 5 people and 'TAG' them... you!!

Hey Joni---So glad to read these things about you! And, I'm so glad you met my wonderful friend, Helen!!!

When we purchased this new house a couple months ago, one of the biggest perks for me was the refrigerator that they left in the garage.

Even as I type, it is 75% filled with pop - diet for me, non for Mark. The other 25% is hummingbird nectar, and extra gallon of milk, and other things I don't use on a regular basis!!

And, a friend of mine told me that McDonald's Diet Coke tastes best because there's some special water filter that they use. It is the bomb, sistuh!

Hi Joni - I am so enjoying learning about everyone! Lime yoghurt, eh? We don't get that here. Love the colour though! Have a good, good day. xx

Hi Joan...it was fun being included on your BLOG!! I'm glad to have you as a new friend, and family, too.

Loved seeing little Joni, and young mom Joni in her Norwegian sweater.
