Whew... For Eija

I was wondering, "what the heck is this all about..." Then I got to Eija's site, Invisible, and there was my name... O Lord... Eija, you have captured my heart enough for me to do this for you... Here goes:

Getting to Know Me:

5 Things I Would Love to do Before I Die (I don't plan well):
1. Live on a farm with my family
2. Make blankets/quilts like my grandma did
3. Open a used bookstore/library/coffeeshop in a small town
4. Learn to play the accordian and/or guitar
5. Have barn dances

5 Things I can do:
1. Knit
2. Bake (and bake with kids under 8!!)
3. Snuggle in and read to kids for hours
4. Discover nature/explore with 3 kids under 8 and a dog
5. Bike 70 miles a day (when trained up; I could maybe bike 20 if I was asked to tomorrow)

5 Things I can not do:
1. Hide my feelings/fake it
2. sew (I am desperate to learn!!)
3. play accordian or guitar (I am cheating here... I admit it) (also desperate to learn)
4. freak out ("make a scene") in public -- I can barely do it in private
5. Leave tomorrow to spend the month at the lake

5 Things that attract me to my husband:
1. Humility
2. His eyes
3. His hands
4. His chest
5. How he is with kids

5 Things I say most often:
1. "Sweetie" (I just noticed I call my dog this all the time, now I'm calling other things it)
2. "You know?"
3. "Shit"
4. "O God"
5. "Oh, Please..." (irritated, sarcastic tone)

5 Celebrity Crushes (I am approaching this not just from looks but for who they seem to be)
1. Andrew Peterson
2. Mel Gibson
3. Bebo Norman
4. Sara Groves
5. Matt Damon (his is just looks!)

People I want to do this:
1. My husband (I have been pressuring him to blog...)
2. Judith Hougen (maybe if I add my voice, she'll cave in to pressure)
3. H. Jane
4. Sleeping with Bread (when she is rested)
5. I give up... Now I'm tired! I gotta go have tea on the porch!

What small town shall we pick for our bookstore/library/coffeshop? I vote for Northfield or Cannon Falls...lots of farms nearby to live on...and not too far from the culture the city offers! Aren't dreams grand?!

Jaime *grin*

Barn dances... I've been to a few when I was a kid. No desire for them anymore :P

Thank you Jaime for this... It's been fun reading the answers. Many of them make me smile :) And they actually do tell something - between the lines - about the people answering them...

Hmm, you and Gloria said you can't hide your emotions...so glad to know there are others out there like that. I'll have to do this soon...

H. waiting to see your blurb too ;)
