My first actual "tag" I think. . .


Thanks, Stephanie, from your beautiful Hearts of Hartmann blog... for this tag...


Five Random things about myself.

1. I will not watch a movie if a child dies in it. If trapped with friends, I go to the bathroom. If at home, I go to another room. It's forever ruined. Thus, I never could watch some really good ones, including the Johnny Cash with one of my favorites, Reese Witherspoon.... How weird, huh?

2. I cannot (yet) actually decide my decorating "look" or style EVER. For a while, I'm French Country; then French attic, then primitive crow, then shabby chic, then Romantic Country... then just tired. I sometimes dabble in Art Nouveau, and then a big Tuscan look.... colonial minimally... Shabby Victorian. Even a nice white Scandinavian... Oh, me... I just know it if I see it....

3. I tend to be wordy on my written answers to anything... haha..

4. I have watched Chocolat probably way more than 100 times. It soothes my soul; the music cheers me; the effervescence of Vianne inspires; the singleness cheers; the happy twist of the explosion at the River Docks delights; the quirkiness tickles me... When I've had to recover from melancholy over men ( and who hasn't?), I often turn in on at night and go to sleep with it.... Ah, the DVD experience to awaken to the repeat pattern of the opening choice screen.

and 5. Even though I'm old and tired and kind of crochity at times, I wish I could start all over as a brand new teacher. I'm not ready to retire at all... I love the excitement of a new lesson, a new chance to do something that will stick or inspire or soothe or ..... silence a riot! haha..????? is that funny? no? My funny bone is kinda suspect, I think... 33 years of teaching will do that.


I am tagging anyone who would like to reveal five random things. Be sure to let me know if you participate. I definitely want everyone to see your responses. Have a good week.

Hi, I got to your site from Stephanie. I love the picture looking out the window, it brings back thoughts of my grandmothers home. Stop by and visit me sometime at Nora Lee's Nook.

The banner is lovely! I hope you will describe those photos somewhere! So is it the time of year to decide if you are teaching or not next year? I am collecting retirement letters, 4 so far! It depresses me to think of what we are losing!
