Oh-oh... I've been tagged!

My friend on tagged me wanting to know 6 uninteresting facts about myself. ONLY six? Well, let's see...

1. Fall is my favorite time of the year and I am promising myself that this year I will decorate thoroughly and ease into Christmas decorating with huge success. Okay... so I am dreaming... but that's okay. I'm at least going to try.

2. I love, love, love genealogy and recording family history. Wish I was a scrapbooker but there has never been that sort of time to do it. My passion is collecting stories from the past. So glad my father's family were all such good letter writers.

3. Our deer lease "casa" is my favorite get-away. It is a duplex. It's not so rustic. We have cable tv and before too long we should have an internet connection. We have great friends who are out there nearly every weekend, so there is always great visiting.

4. I enjoy fixing up my home. The going has been extremely slow this year due to the loss of both of my parents last year. I'm trying to incorporate many of their beautiful things into my home, thus, in some cases changing some of the color themes. It's so nice to pick up an item that was displayed in their home and enjoy the memories.

5. I want to work on a schedule where I can stay home every day of the week except for two days. One day would be to get hair or nails done or do some grocery shopping. The other day would be for errands for my home and wardrobe. Another dream, I suppose...

6. I love to entertain but it makes me terribly nervous. I want to have a dinner party on my patio and use my Mexico memorabilia and recipes. I bought lots of Mexican table decor in Tlaquepaque. Ceviche would be high on the menu list. We have some coconut candies for sure. I'm flying down there this week so may want to pick up some fresh items. Wonder when I'll get around to hosting this party I keep dreaming about??

So that is me for now....

I felt relaxed just reading your post. The two days out schedule is a great idea that I have thought about myself.

Very interesting list Miss Karen!
