It is so nice to know that people enjoy coming to see you. If you haven't visited Maine Mom, go on over there and get acquainted. She is the mom of 5 kids and I have great admiration for her ability to keep it all together in a small space. Thanks, MM!
One of my favorite writers and thinkers is Kim at Can You Hear Me Now? One of the most fascinating things to me about this blogging adventure is the great variety of us who have become acquainted - deep thinkers, those who can write devotions worthy of publication, those who chronicle their daily lives, those who give gifts, those who are awesome homemakers, those who school their children at home, those who are writing their life histories, and on and on. Kim is a thinker who has a great ability to write those thoughts for us. She is open and honest about what she's going through spiritually and personally, and I appreciate her. She's been very busy lately and is just now getting back to blogging more regularly. She tagged me for this Profile Meme. I haven't done one for awhile, so here goes:
My Blog Name is: Grandma Dawn
But people usually call me: Dawn, Mom, Grandma, Honey (only one person is allowed)
I was born here: Minneapolis
And I've lived here: Minnesota, Arkansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kansas
Until I wound up here: Colorado
My occupation is: Coordinator of the Master of Social Work admission process; coordinating the students through the two year program
My favorite color is: blue, with hunter green a close second
My favorite hobby is: reading. I used to have lots of others, which I intend to post about soon, but now reading is about it (hopefully retirement will rekindle some of the others)
My favorite season is: FALL (or autumn, which is a much prettier word)
A few favorite books are: Way too many to name - I read so many mystery series it's ridiculous. I particularly love Earlene Fowler in that area. I love the Mitford Series, Eugenia Price, Boede Thoene, Max Lucado. I am currently reading two new authors that I will expound upon during Woman to Woman next Tuesday.
Some of my favorite music: Choir is my love, and we sing so many different styles. For listening pleasure while I work, I love classical guitar, piano, flute, pan pipes, orchestra
My favorite kinds of movies are: the few I watch have to be pretty much chick flicks with no bad language or sexual content - so that limits it pretty badly!
My favorite actor/actress is: Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan (they need to do another one together - see above!)
My favorite food indulgence: chocolate, no contest
My favorite drink indulgence is: Diet Dr. Pepper
My favorite dessert indulgence is: really good homemade apple pie (strange, since it's not chocolate!)
One weird thing about me is: I add and subtract numbers on license plates, and type the numbers in my head
One of my fantasies is: to not have to worry about anybody ever again
One of my pet peeves is: people talking on cell phones in public - airports, cars, sidewalks, restaurants, grocery stores, work - hmmm, guess we hit a nerve there!
I'd love to see others pick this one up and do it. It's fun to learn these little details about people.
