Q: What is your current obsession?
A: Organizing. During the school year everything seems to slip sideways. This summer I've been working on putting things back in order. This time, I'd like to do it well enough that perhaps we can stay organized even when school begins again.
Q: What is the very last picture that you framed?
A: A picture for Jeffrey that Julie took of me.
Q: What's for dinner?
A: You'd have to ask Jeffrey. He's the cook around here.
Q: What was the last thing you bought?
A: A butterfly wing pendant at my favorite spot. It is so beautiful but I especially loved it because the creators of these necklaces harvest already-dead butterflies from the rain forest. It's a beautiful form of recycling.
Q: What are you listening to right now?
A: Somewhere I've never been before. Always.
Q: What are you reading right now?
A: "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett
Q: What four words would you use to describe yourself?
A: Passionate, affectionate, enthusiastic, fun
Q: What is your current guilty pleasure?
A: I'm with Lala. Why feel guilty about pleasure? Instead I'll give you four tiny pleasures: blowing bubbles, petting a cat, arranging a vase of flowers, writing lists
Q: What is one thing you hope to accomplish this summer?
A: Learn how to transfer my home videos from tape to dvd
Q: Where are you planning to travel next?
A: St. Louis for a weekend in October. For Jeffrey's birthday, I got all three of us tickets to see Yo Yo Ma. Can't wait!
Q: What was the best thing you ate or drank recently?
A: grilled asparagus with a bit of black pepper
Q: What is your favorite thing about summer?
A: small-town carnies & not wearing a watch from the day school gets out to the day it begins again
Q: What is your one favorite word these days?
What about you? Play along if you like. I'd love to hear your answers.
Photograph above by Julie Blackmon. Believe it or not, I fell in love with this photograph in a local gallery about 5 or 6 years ago. It was $150, but I didn't have the money at the time. Now, her photographs sell for $2,200 to $4,800. Have you ever just wanted to kick yourself?
