1.What's something you wish you knew how to do, but feel like it's too late to learn?
I'd love to be able to play some more instruments, like a steel guitar and mandolin. While it's really probably not to late to learn, I'm just not sure I'd be willing to spend the time it would take to learn.
2. Your least favorite thing to shop for? Why?
A vehicle, because I hate dealing with car salesmen or any salesman for that matter.
3. How has the celebration of Thanksgiving today changed from when you were growing up?
When still at home, we went to mom's parent's home and all the aunts and uncles and cousins were there and we had an awesome time together. Then it became, going to my parent's home and just the brothers and sisters and spouses and kids and that was always a lot of fun. This year is completely different with mom and my brother both gone and dad in a senior center with dementia. Hubby and I decided to stay out of town and just go to a restaurant with his parents. It's definitely different. I'm not sure what our future Thanksgivings will be like. But I know no matter what, I plan to keep on being thankful for all God does and just for who He is.
4. What's something that when other people see it, reminds them of you? Explain.
Probably about anything Disney related makes my friends and family think of me. Maybe it's cause I'm a bit of a Disney freak and can talk about it non-stop if asked a question about Disney World. I'd say Dory from Nemo, makes my girls think about me because she's one of my favorite Disney character.
5. If you could guest star in a TV show, what would it be and why?
Maybe one of the home makeover shows on HGTV, like "Love It or List It". So then I could get a house makeover which we could really use. In fact, we plan to do some makeovers in 2016, but we're really slow and it would be nice to have a whole team come in and do it in a week or so. lol
6. Have you ever farmed or spent any time on a farm? Are there farm stands in your little corner of the world and do you make it a point to shop there? If so, what item do you particularly like to buy from a roadside stand or farm shop?
No, I have not personally farmed, however when I was a freshman in high school my parents bought about a 20-25 acre farm and I lived there until I was around 24-25. We had all kinds of animals (cows, pigs, chickens, horses, sheep, rabbits, turkeys, bees) and I helped feed and water them some of the time. We also baled hay a couple of times and one year dad grew field corn for the animals and we picked the entire field by hand. It was probably 6-8 acres of corn. Not a particularly fun task. But I'm glad I had a chance to learn about a farm first hand. But no, I never want to do it again. Yes, there are farm stands and we do use them from time to time.
7. What's something you've experienced recently that made you feel a sense of awe or wonder?
The beautiful scenery from our balcony this past month.
