Spring is in the air. The neighborhood children are out of school. Perfect weather for playing tag. Apparently, bloggers feel the same.
Monday I was tagged by Loree Huebner, a talented historical fiction writer and civil war re-enactor. I always learn something interesting at her blog Between You, Me, and the Gatepost…. She posts each Monday, I encourage you to stop by. This week she answered the same questions as below, and the previous Monday she had a great post on the woman who started the Red Cross.
The rules of being tagged are to answer the questions that Loree has left for us. Here are mine!
1 Book or movie and why?
Depends. If my eyes are tired from writing on the computer all day, or if I want to spend cuddle time with hubby, I’ll pick movie. But on my own, I’ll take a book.
2 Real book or e-book?
Ebook. I love how easy on the eyes my Kindle is since it’s not back lit like a computer screen. I can make the print as large as I want and it’s far lighter than holding a book.
3 Funniest thing you’ve done in the past 5 years?
While on vacation with our neighbors, I went up to my friend’s husband (who’s old enough to be my father and a flirt) with a big smile and my hands behind my back. I said, “Nancy said it would be okay to give you a big kiss for your birthday.” After a momentarily surprised expression, he grinned and leaned forward to receive it. I quickly drew my hands up between us and presented an enormous Hershey’s Kiss.
4 How would your best friend describe you?
I’m not sure. I’ll have to ask her!
5 How do you put yourself into the books you read/write or the movies you watch?
I write romantic suspense so my heroine is in danger…a lot. And she’s single. I’m neither, so I rely heavily on my imagination.
6 Favorite kind of car and why?
Horse drawn carriage, because it’s so romantic.
7 Would your choice party be a catered meal or a BBQ out back?
I’m not a huge BBQ fan, but I definitely prefer the casual atmosphere of a BBQ. My choice party is pot luck.
8 What’s your favorite season and why?
Spring. I love seeing new flowers and trees budding almost daily, listening to the birds singing, and feeling the warmth of the sun after a cold winter.
9 What specific lesson have you learned – Spiritual, educational, occupational?
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Everything’s small stuff.
10 Besides writing, what’s your favorite thing to do when you get some extra time?
Play with my grandbaby!
11 What’s one place you can be found at least one time every week?
Now I’m supposed to tag 11 awesome bloggers. I wish I could tag everyone. I tagged a selection of the blogs I visit that are written by just one blogger, and who I hoped hadn’t been tagged before. If you see your name below, you are tagged. (I provided the links to their blogs, so you could visit, too).
Awesome Bloggers: Answer the same 11 questions that I did. No pressure to play along – all in good fun.
Oh, and while I’m sharing blog links…
