A little Q & A — inspiration from here.
What is the last thing you watched on TV? I can’t think of anything. I rarely watch TV.
When did you last step outside? What were you doing? Yesterday afternoon. It was sunny and beautiful so I washed the outside of the windows, did some garden work with John — tidied up the beds for the coming year and replanted a grape vine, and re-shingled the roof of the chicken coop.
What is on the walls of the room you are in? Art work from my kids’ grade school years.
If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy? A new minivan to replace the 13 yo one that is slowing falling apart.
Tell me something about you that most people don’t know. I love to read about strange and unusual diseases.
Who made the last incoming call on your phone? My daughter — arranging a ride home.
What was the last book you read? Stella Bain by Anita Shreve
If you could change something about your home, without worry about expense or mess, what would you do? Kitchen renovation — big time! I’d love more counter space, cabinets and a gas stove with a gorgeous hood. Double wall ovens would be a dream.
What was the last thing you bought? Do groceries count? No? OK then, a vintage tennis racket from the thrift store. I’m thinking about making a mirror out of it.
If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be? David Lebovitz. While he might not quite qualify as a famous FAMOUS person, I love his blog and his cook books and his sense of humor. Bonus would be if he made the lunch.
Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? Williams Sonoma or maybe Crate and Barrel. But, reality is I would never max out a credit card.
Is the glass half empty or half full? Half full. Always.
Name something that took you by surprise. The warm and beautiful day we had yesterday. It was wonderful to be outside. Today we’re getting ice and snow.
Name one TV show you will watch every time it’s on – none
Name a movie you will watch no matter how many times you’ve seen it. Dunno…..maybe Gone with the Wind?
What’s your favorite musical? Hands down — Evita!
What’s the farthest-away place you’ve been? Rome.
What’s under your bed? Not a thing — yesterday was clean house day so there isn’t even any dust under there.
What is your favorite time of the day? Early morning when I’m up, the sky is just starting to lighten and I have a steaming cappuccino in my hand.
