Getting to Know .....ME!

As if you didn't already know me....Linda over at Prairie Flower Farm blog is having a question and answer time...5 questions.   I am copying them here and will send her the link.  That way you can read them and she can also. 

1. Would you rather be knitting, crocheting, hand stitching doing embroidery, sewing using your sewing machine or all of the above?

Actually..I am a crafter wantabe.   I have a difficult time figuring out the how tos of hand stitching, although I did some rough cross stitching when I was in my teens.  I love the IDEA,  but the actually doing is so frustrating I can't stand it for long.  Put it this way.  My 11 yr old son and 6 yr old daughter had to show me numerous times how to use a knifty knitter.  Sad...but very TRUE!  maybe someday. 

2. Do you have any kind of crafty or sewing thing that you are working on now?

See above answer and no.

3. Do you like to cook from scratch or do you use prepared food?

AHHH,  a question I CAN answer well.  I love to cook from scratch.  There is something amazing to me about mixing and stirring and cutting and boiling and WALLAH,  there is wonderful, filling, nourishing food on the table.  I have loved learning how to make breads,  of all kinds, and now am learning how to make homemade cakes,  something I have NOT been good at in the past.  And something I can thank CAKE BOSS for,  he inspired me.

4. Will you have a garden this next summer......what will you grow and will you start your own seeds?

I will have a garden this year,  hopefully beginning soon, although the weather has been cold here lately.  I will grow tomatoes,  carrots, lettuce, broccoli, peppers, beans, corn, melons.   Some from seed, some not.  I have a list of foods I want to try like potatoes, both sweet and regular,  some herbs,  and a variety of heirloom tomatoes.

5. Do you live in the city or on a farm which would you rather if you could?

We say we pretend to live in the country.  We live 1/2 mi outside city limits,  so we can thankfully have chickens and other livestock if we want.  We all LOVE the idea of living in the country on a farm,  but not sure if we really have the GUTS to do it.  It's take a lot of hard work and love of the field.  I was raised an Air Force brat so I can get around a city,  but I have a natural love for....the natural.   Maybe some day. 

Well,  you know  a little more about me.  If you want,  you can copy and paste the questions and let me know a little more about you.  

thanks for reading,
