I've Been Tagged...

and tagged and tagged!

Great minds think alike... Fred at One Project Closer, Christine at Front Porch Indiana, Jen of Dogs and Jen, D. at Re:HABitat, and Kim at Four Bed, Two Baths all tagged me for a "get to know you" meme... and Robj98168 nominated me for a Arte y Pico Award... thanks all for thinking of me! I do appreciate it. Even if it takes me a week or two to get to it!

All About Me...

1. What did you do 10 years ago?
Hmmm... 1998. Well, I was probably on a two week canoe trip in the Canadian wilderness this exact week. Two weeks without a shower (or even soap)... 7 lakes and two rivers... 11 other high school students. This was my first time out in the wilderness in this way... I would be a senior in high school in the fall.

2. Five items on your to-do list today:
  • Sleep In (Done)
  • Make Bread (Done)
  • Water the Apple Trees (Done)
  • Find the Proper Brick Ties (Done- online at least)
  • Pay Bills (Done)
Easy day, wasn't it! Summer band finished yesterday, so I took the day off.

3. Five Snacks I enjoy:
  • Freshly popped popcorn hot off the stove with lots of salt (NO butter... YUCK!)
  • Chocolate Graham Crackers (preferably teddy bear or bunny shaped)
  • Colorado Peaches... I can't WAIT!
  • Tortilla Chips and Guacamole and Salsa... homemade, of course!
  • Leftovers. LOVE leftovers!
4. What would you do if you were a billionaire?
Hard question! I've been spending the last year trying to reduce all needless wants... and I must say I have succeeded quite well. I can't even think of what I would want that could cost that much! Aside from a Craftsman bungalow with original woodwork and trim and such, I don't have many wants... I think travelling would be a big one. Maybe a couple really neat houses across the country, too? And, I'd set up a foundation that gave scholarships for children to take music classes and lessons and afford instruments, and help my alma mater FINALLY build a concert hall. I'd donate a lot to dog rescues to help them afford to rehabilitate confused pups like my Molly. Oh, and I'd build a big swimming pool with a diving board and fill it with money. Yeah.

5. Places I would live:I'm a big fan of Colorado right now... not too hot or cold, not too many disasters (ignoring the tornado from a month ago). But, I might like the northwest, too...

I'm passing on the tagging... I think everyone I've seen has done it! I'm just slow. Thanks again!

Nice to get to know you, Jennifer. We tagged you last Saturday too with a very similar meme! Thanks for stopping by our place so much and leaving comments. It's always nice to have someone read & comment - makes us feel like someone's reading all these ramblings. I think you're the most popular houseblogger on the net.

Fred~ You are so right! I KNEW there was one more... but I just couldn't find it. Thanks for reminding me!

Hi! My name is Jess - I found your blog from the One Project Closer blog but wanted to say hi because I think we actually live near each other! I am in Windsor CO and noticed your posts on the tornado there in May.

Just wanted to say hi to a fellow CO blogger, and let you know I think your house is adorable!! How much fun to get to do work on it to make it your OWN!

Hi Jennifer!

I just wanted to thank you for the helpful post you left on my blog. Your tip about using clear silicone caulk for our shower is a great one. You've got a fantastic blog!
