Just Some Fun! 25 Random Things!

Cleaning out my Facebook notes awhile back  I found this "25 Random Things", I thought it might be fun to post them on my blog!

AND.... if anyone is game and will comment with 10 things about themselves, I will put your name in a drawing and whomever is drawn will win a YUMMY prize! Which means homemade food!

Drawing will be completed on Sunday, October 28th!

If you live far away, I will even mail it! No problem!

  5. 1. I am a born and raised city girl, but absolutely love living in the country (just 1 mile from my bestie)! I don't know what I am doing most of the time, but thank God for those that I can ask that actually do know how to live in the country.
    2. My favorite stress reliever is to walk the pasture. I have found; several "treasures" in one of the creeks that must have come from a past owner's trash pile, 2 giant "dens" I believe belong to badgers, a foundation for a building that has long been gone, deer antlers, cow bones, and occasionally I find the horses out there.
    3. I am obsessed with taking pictures of the sky. I believe the beauty is God talking to us. One day I was sitting in the corral (upset) and saw the beautiful pink clouds forming a hug for me. When I looked back through the pictures, the last one looked like a heart. God knew I needed a hug...
    4. I am so proud of my children! I don't know when they did it, but Kelsey and Eric have become responsible adults, and amazing people. Amanda is a caring, independent college girl. Lacie is a giving, bubbly high school junior.
    5. Having DaeLynn as a graddaughter is the cherry on top of the icing on my cake! I can't wait for more grandchildren!!
    6. I own 2 houses. One in Canton that we lived in for 17 years and the one we live in now. Hopefully the one in Canton will be on the market in the next year.
    7. My dream is to open a bakery. I love to bake!
    8. I have 8 horses on the "farm" and only 1 belongs to me.
    9. Coyotes scare the stuffing out of me! I know they aren't going to hurt me, but when they get to howling and carrying on, and they sound like they are in my corral, I want to hide in the house. I think it stems from being in the pasture last summer when the horses came charging toward me and 2 coyotes circled around them. The coyotes both looked directly at me and acted like they were going to come toward me until I clapped real loud and yelled "hey" at them. They were young and playing, but it was scary!
    10. Whew! I'm at number 10! Ummm... Julie and I have been friends since our freshman year. I always felt more a part of her family than my own. I still feel like Tam and Liz are my sisters and Julie is my kindred soul!

    1. Lis!
