Barb from Harmony Art Mom tagged me yesterday in a post!
She said "There's a game of tag going around the blogosphere. Someone tags you with 8 questions to answer. You answer them, and then tag some other blogger buddies with your own set of questions".
She asked (my answer in italic):
1. Do you use a bookmark or do you turn pages down? How many books do you read at a time? For Bible readers-Do you write in your Bible?
I use both methods. For library books, I usually use a bookmark and for my own books I turn the pages down. I sometimes read two books at a time, but usually just one. With non-fiction books, I like to take notes while I read.
2. Where do you dream of traveling some day? Alone with your dh or with your children?
My kids and I were just talking about that! I have many places I would like to travel to. I was fortunate to travel a lot when I was growing up, but there are still many places I would like to visit. Brazil, Peru, Russia, Netherlands, Norway, China, Thailand, New Zealand. I also want to visit Oregon, California, Washington DC, and in Canada all the Atlantic Provinces, Alberta and British Columbia. I would be happy to visit all these places with my husband and my children. If I were to go somewhere by myself, then I would pick France, to visit my mother, siblings and friends.
3. What is your favorite household chore?
I enjoy vacuuming and washing mirrors.
4. What is a personal goal you have made this year?
To keep running, consistently, at least three times a week.
5. How many blogs do you read every week? What attracts you to certain blogs?
I am not sure how many blogs I read a week, probably around 25 or so. I have a lot in my Google Reader and on the side of my blog, but I don't read them all the time. I can't find enough time for all of them! I am attracted by beautiful photos and topics that interest me. Some blogs I read regularly relate to homeschooling and unschooling, but I also read a few about simple living, quilting, sewing, and books.
Now it's my turn to tag a few blogging friends and ask questions...
I liked Barb's idea of tagging people that left comments during that week on her blog, so I will do the same.
Fiddler from Rockhound Place
Tracy from Secular Nature Homeschool
Lori from Keeping it Simple
Sheri from Our Pace
Playing by the Book
Red Ted Art's Blog
I also think five questions is plenty...so here are my five. If you see your name in the list above, play along by answering these on your blog and if you don't see your name, but want to play too, then TAG! you're it!
My questions, with a "favourite" theme:
1. I have been looking for some simple but interesting halloween crafts/decorations, what is your favourite one to do with your children? please include a link if you have one.
2. What is your favourite way to spend a rainy day with your children?
3. What is your favourite fall food?
4. What is your current favourite read aloud book?
5. Last one just for Mom..what is your favourite novel?
