games and more games

I have been tagged...like "you're it" by Claudia for a fun MeMe...Here are the rules: "The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves.At the end of the post,the player then tags 5 people and posts their names,then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment,letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog.Let the person who tagged you know when you've posted your answer." 1)What was I doing 10 years ago? At the risk of sounding boring,I was doing much of the same.Well, actually I was not working at that time.I had taken some time off from my nursing career.I was recuperating from a major surgery.It was a nice time really. I got to explore with my friends...travelling to the Midwest in search of folk art primitives...I was making a lot of quilts and working on primitive type hooked rugs. I had an opportunity at that time to meet and learn from some famous designers in their field Barbara Carroll and Emma Lou Lais.
2)What are 5 things on my to-do list for today?
It is 8pm here...the only thing I have left to do today is call my brother John and wish him a Happy Birthday,tomorrow however,I have to pick up my daughter and the girls(because her vehicle is on the fritz)...transport all to dance class...return a skein of yarn,rather exchange it for another to make this... and the weeds in my garden are in terrible need of attention-so they will be gone tomorrow...I really should be working on my niece's shrug May...
3)Snacks I enjoy:
There is probably a long list of not so good for you things that I will snack on once in awhile,but what I really could live on are NUTS,almonds,pecans and walnuts being my favorites.You can add soy nuts to that,too. I like fresh fruit and cheese as a snack...white Vermont sharp cheddar,and fresh berries...any berry will do,but blackberries take first place ...now I am hungry!
4)Things I would do if I were a Billionaire:
I'm sure my family would come first...especially making sure all the girls had college funding set aside...I know I would travel,probably to England,Japan and any coastline with a beautiful beach...I would probably open my own shop...knitting ,woollens and primitives...all in a pleasing array...
5)Places I have lived:
I am a Pennsylvania girl born and raised. I haven't strayed very far from home,in fact I still live in the city where I was born and raised. I lived about an hour away here while studying nursing...boring,huh?
6)Jobs I have had:
It's funny I am asked this question...I was thinking today that the only jobs I have had are in nursing...I was never a waitress,I never worked retail,I never worked while I was in school...you're thinking what I sheltered life I've led,right? I am a wife and mother to a wonderful daughter and son...and I do consider this as a job...unpaid,but a job none the less...
My sister and I did take over my brother's paper route for a while,when my parents found out he was spending the collection money...we actually did a good job!
7) Bloggers I am tagging who you will enjoy getting to know better:
Nicole , (happy mama of 3) a young mama with some fresh ideas;Kimberly-( the giving flower ),a new friend..
Janet (twisted knitter)a flickr friend with a lot to share; Alison( 6.5 stitches )who does the most incredible knitting..and her photos are outstanding...
andKate (knitter gal) another flickr friend with a great sense of humor...
Thanks to Claudia,again...for tagging me..it's been fun!!
Another fun game I recently played was Survivor..not actually on television,but on Ravelry,and if you are not a member,you must join this wonderful online knitting community...the winner of Survivor,in this case the member of the group who was playing as the survivor would win prizes/gifts from the other members.Guess who won-yep-ME (from group1)...I could not believe it,and hey,who wouldn't like receiving some pretty neat gifts from some new friends...
This is some of my booty so far..thanks to all my survivor friends...
and a wonderful weekend to all...

This season's shows were more fun, because of Survivor's Ready? on Ravelry. And even more fun because we, as Parvati, won! :-)

Thanks for sharing a little about yourself! I'm a big nut fan too - I believe you and I are called "nutters." I eat raw walnuts every morning along with an apple and bowl of oatmeal. I love the lion washcloth - it's so cute. Congratulations on winning Survivor - that looks like a fun group to be in.
