Now on to the 5 Things About Me... separate from above of course...

What was I doing 10 years ago ?

Almost to the day... I was sitting here in the exact same spot I am now, but it was in a Starcraft pop up trailer and we were on vacation as we always were for the first 2 weeks of July. I was probably reading a book and dreaming about what it would be like to live here all the time, making mental notes about where the sun rose, what trees would have to be taken down and putting names to the birdsong I'd never heard before. See? Dreams really do come true!

5 Things On My To Do List Today ? (actually tomorrow, it's evening here now)

a- satellite guy is coming to install Direct TV, we are dumping the Dish
b- study for a certification test I'm taking Tues
c- do some work on my swap block
d- weed out front flower bed
e- launder and hang comforters and bedskirts

Snacks I Enjoy ?

Better Made wheat and honey twisted pretzels, Chex Mix and Townhouse Crackers. Spinach dip and corn chips too, hmmm. I'm more a salty snacker but when I do the sweet craving thing (not often), nothing is safe. I try to keep Captain Crunch cereal around for that. (I'm hungry now)

Things I Would Do If I Were A Billionaire ?

Of course after gifting the close relatives and friends, I'd add on to the house making this part a studio of sorts. I'd have a bio-dome built here on the property with a pool, a waterfall stream and an atrium. I'd love to travel around the world but then I'd come back home to see all of the USA I haven't so far, randomly giving money to people and causes who needed it. I don't think alot would change with me personally. I'd just worry less and smile more, Alot more!

Not that you can buy courage, but I'm sure being a billionaire I'd be confident enough to make a few phone calls and tell some people I know where they could stuff their own money now, !!

Places I've Lived ?

Detroit MI
Fowlerville MI
South Lyon MI
Myrtle Beach SC

Hopefully that was somewhat entertaining, certainly more than you may have known about me before.

I've sewn a block for July's TIF and still have the end result of June's to post so I'll get the photos loaded and possibly be back tomorrow.
