I made some cookies for St. Patrick's day and it was a lot of fun! Next year I'm just going to make the leprechauns, my favorites! Here's a traditional Irish blessing for you all today...May the leprechauns be near you, to spread luck along your way. And may all the Irish angels, smile upon you St. Patrick's Day. :)

Tag...I'm it!


A. Post the rules.
B. Answer the questions about yourself.
C. After posting, tag 5 people by going to their blog and
leaving a comment.

1. What were you doing 10 years ago?

Hmmm...I can't even remember what I was doing 10 days ago!? Let's see...I had all my children at home, so I was busy taking care of them and going to their various events/activities(many times also volunteering) relating to school, sports and church.

2. 5 things on my "to do" list today...

Watch Zeke
Pay bills
Put clothes away
Buy dog food
Buy "101 Dalmations" dvd:)

3. What snacks I enjoy...

A bowl of cereal
A bagel
A banana
Peanut butter

4. What would I do if I were suddenly a billionaire?

I would pay off all of my kid's debts(educational and business) and
our own, buy them each a house and a car and set up a trust fund
for each of the grandchildren. We would build a new home for us
(with a spacious gourmet kitchen) with land
(for more pets and for the grandkids to explore) up near/in Big Sur
(Jim would LOVE that!) and of course, send Jim(me too?) on his dream trip
to Nepal to climb Mt. Everest(with Sherpas, not me!)...I would go to Armenia, Spain
and Mexico to discover more about my roots. I might go to culinary school:)
I would donate(in a BIG way) to ovarian/breast cancer research and Operation Smile!

5. 3 bad habits...

Interrupt and talk too much instead of listening!
Not nearly patient enough!

6. 5 places I've lived..

(in order)

Whittier, CA

West Los Angeles, CA

7. 5 jobs I've had...

Carl's Jr. waitress(?)
Kitchen Aide at Grandview Sanitarium
Dispatcher at Liberty Mutual Ins.
Billing clerk at the Evening Outlook
Noon-aide at Dunlap Elem.

8. 5 things people don't know about me...

I did the Solvang Century(100 mi. bike ride)
I(we) sponsor a little girl in the Philippines
I would LOVE to start a cookie business
I wish I'd had more children
I was voted "Most Fun" in high school..HAHA

Now I pick 5 people to tag and I tag..

They're all taken! My kids; Sarah & Johnny, Summer & Brian and Jesse & Lois, have all been tagged and basically those are the only blogs I keep up with...Jim was tagged too. Hmmm...I know, I'll tag Maxine! I watch her blog also:)
