Tag Quiz

One of my newest blog buddies, Emily, at Longstockings tagged me this week with a quiz that Heather, over at Implausible Yarn tagged her with.  I thought it would be fun to share.

Q. What's your staple meal? (i.e. What meal do you cook most often when you can't be bothered to be adventurous?)

A.  Spaghetti!  I know that sounds crazy, but it is.  I always have noodles and sauce in the pantry.  We are big pasta eaters in our house so this is the one that I know I can get done quick and will satisfy everybody. 

Q. What do you want to be when you grow up?

A.  Shop owner.  I have always wanted to own my very own little shop.  What type of shop varies as my interests vary.  It has always been a dream and it will happen some day - when I grow up.
Q. What book are you reading at the moment, if any?

A.  Nothing.  I am not a big reader.  I love craft magazines and knitting and crochet books.  But reading is just not my thing.  I feel like it takes time away from other things I enjoy more. 
Q. How do you relax?

A.  At work when I am stressed I take a break and read through my favorite blogs.  At home I knit or crochet.  Sometimes I just sit on the back deck and drink a beer (or several).  And then there are those times when I knit and drink beer!  Sometimes if this goes on too long I have to pull stitches out the next day. ;-) These are some of the ways I let my mind go to another place and rest.  Sometimes you just have to shut down and re-boot.

Q. What color are the interior walls of your home?

A.  Beige.  I like beige, it's neutral, so whatever else I throw in the room always matches.

Q. What is your guiltiest pleasure?

A.  Taking a day off of work when I know everyone else is out of the house for the day.  I love having the house all to myself.  I have absolute control of the TV remote and can watch all the cartoons I want while knitting away.  Not much else gets done and I can do exactly what I want to not what I have to.

Q. What time is bedtime and getting up?

A.  Work days - up at 4:45AM, bed by 10:00PM.  Weekends - up no later than 6:30AM and try hard to stay up past 10:00PM.

Q. How long do you spend reading blogs (per day or per week)? 

A.  Too much!  I love, love, love reading blogs.  I check blogs everyday, several times a day. Bordering on becoming an obsession.

Now, time to pass the fun on!


  1. I will have to put my thinking cap on. I loved hearing more about you. Jonno now has the boys brewing ginger beer with him. I am still not quite sure about the recipe so if you know a good one please tell me. Love Kate xxooxxooxx.
