I owe a couple of bloggers some answers.
I've been tagged and awarded!
I am pressed for time, so I thought that
 I'd do a condensed version.
I really do appreciate the shout out, ladies!
Thanks so much to
and to 
Meegan at What Meegan Makes.

A few answers-

I've been blogging since May of 2011.
What's my focus? Ha!  None of that around here.

My favorite blogger?
It was Marian, MMS herself, who inspired me
 to take the leap.
No agenda, no pressure. Just do it, she said.
  I was at Luckett's the weekend she moved 
into her outdoor space.
That was almost a year ago.  How things have changed!
She'll always be my favorite because she gave me
 the courage to put my toe into the water.
Thanks, Marian!

My favorite dessert?
Chocolate Cake.
Chocolate Pecan Frosting.
I don't share.

What do I like to do when I have free time?
Read real books. See movies. Bake. Sew. Embroider.
Sit and enjoy the quiet.
I am in LOVE with quiet.

A few favorite things?
Fresh flowers.
Orange toe nails
The smell of fresh rosemary.
Vintage linens.
Anything my boys made for me.
Crazy old Bette Davis movies.
(I know they weren't intended as comedy, but how she makes me laugh when she gets crazy eyes!)

Do I get writer's block or struggle 
to come up with blog ideas?
No, never.  I am always doing ten things at once 
so I have plenty to blog about.
I just don't want to be a slave to the computer.

My favorite singer/band?
I like all kinds of music except rap...
it makes my ears bleed.
Right now I'm listening to James Morrison,
Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, and Gavin DeGraw.
I love 80's music.  
I'm a little bit country, I'm a little bit rock and roll.
(First person to call me out on that verse wins something!) 
And I love Adele, but geeez...that girl makes me depressed.

Last thing I pinned on Pinterest?
I love this!

Hope you'll visit J.R and Meegan~

I'm off to work out in the backyard.
The drought last year did a lot of damage, 
so there's much to do.
I've completed several projects,
 but haven't taken the time to draft a post.
Maybe tonite?

Before I go, I have a prayer request please.
My son has a friend who is at the neurologist today
and undergoing a brain MRI.
They suspect a brain tumor, but there are environmental toxins in play, so the MRI is step one.
She's a new mom and 
her husband was just deployed.
I spent some time with her on the phone last night.  
She's out of state and away from her family.
She's so scared and all alone.
I know she'd really appreciate your prayers.
Hang in there, T.
You can get through this, sweet girl.

Thanks, friends!


  1. sending good thoughts to your friend...

    now, pass me a slice of that cake, please. :)

  2. Hi Tina- Well, YOU know why I am reposting this because of my wording error.I am sending up a prayer for your young FRIEND and I love all the facts about you! I knew I liked you! xo Diana

  3. It's always fun to get to know fellow bloggers a bit bitter! I love lemons and the scent of rosemary, too! And don't even get me started on chocolate:)

  4. Tina,
    loved learning new things about you and will send some prayers up for you and your son's friend, hope all goes well!

  5. First are prayers for your friend. Now I find the Adele music gets me all worked up on the highway, but I love it. I am starting to feel the same way about the computer, so I have been taking a break as well So glad you shared yourself with us.

  6. Donnie and Marie! ( A little bit country and a little bit rock and roll) I watched their show faithfully...and I always loved it when they sang that song.

    Loved reading your other answers too. and I was glad to hear you say you don't want to be a slave to the computer...I feel the same way...
