A wet, dreary day that I've mostly slept through, thanks to allergies and a little white pill. Got up sneezing so hard it was all I could do to get the bunny chores done. Do you know what constant sneezing does to a forty-plus woman who spent ten years lifting bags of cabbage and boxes of potatoes? It's not pretty. Thanks to Chris for all the virtual tea and the good vibrations!

Stacey tagged me with this mime. My head isn't very good today but it's been awhile since she tagged me!

What was I doing....ten years ago?
Getting a divorce from my first ex. Don't know how I wound up married to that one. Well, I do, but that's a long story to think about when I'm drugged with antihistimines!

5 years ago?
Not sure; probably getting divorced from my second ex. I reconnected with someone I had known a long time; he was the main reason I didn't stay married. And the only one I had sense enough NOT to marry!

1 year ago?
Working in Central Virginia at an antique shop, trying to learn the business so I'd hopefully know enough to build one here.

Easier to remember years ago! I went to my aunt's for her computer lessons after laying around all morning. She told me that my favorite cousin, recovering from a hip replacement, is back in the hospital for heart problems. Things seem to be going well but it still worries everyone!

The aforesaid allergy struggle and sleeping all day. Really can't do this, as there is a pile of work to be done and people coming tomorrow to pick up bunnies!

If the sun comes out I'll be at the Meadows of Dan Farmer's Market, with all the craft stuff and 'debuting' my painted china. Hope it's not a complete flop! Talking bunnies to a delightful young woman!

5 snacks I enjoy
Just five? Anything chocolate; the current favorite is a white chocolate blueberry bar, ice cream (Cherry Garcia for preference), peanuts, sour cream and onion chips, yogurt (I can get healthy sometimes) and wintergreen hard candy.

5 bands and singers for which I know most of their stuff
Nope, my life doesn't cover this one. Unless you count old bluegrass bands from the 70s. Or my brother's band, Lonesome River Band.

What would I do with $100,000,000?
I can't really comprehend that kind of money. And I can't think of any changes I would make. The people around me seem to be happy with what they have so I couldn't blow it on family. I have a friend I could help out but that wouldn't make much of a dent. Maybe put some in the business but that wouldn't be much. Be nice to add to my retirement; with my genes I might live a long time! If I wind up with that kind of money, I'll be sure to ask ya'll what to do with it!

5 locations I'd run away to:
Bath, England, Northern Wales, the South of France because I'd like to see it, Rome and Greece for the same reason. But I'd come back!

5 bad habits:
Putting off housework, playing with bunnies when I should be cleaning trays, eating too much, being obsessive about projects, reading when I should be working.

5 things I like doing:
Reading, spinning, being with the animals, being with friends and family, being alone.

5 things I would never wear:
I'm not really very fussy and never say never. I don't like tight clothes, chartreuse, very high heels, those short pants things, but I'm not a fashion diva.

5 TV shows I like:
Don't watch TV much, although I'm thinking about getting a satelite set-up for us this winter.

5 famous people I'd like to meet:
I'd like to go to a gathering of some of the current chick lit authors. These ladies are CLEVER!

5 biggest joys at the moment:
Even though allergies are not serious, they sure take the edge of things. Right now I can't think of much. Living here and doing my own thing is the biggest joy, Lily, having great family and friends, the SO is pretty OK, sunshine.

5 favorite toys:
Reeves spinning wheel, book charka (fussy to work with but so cleverly put together), the computer (natch!), digital camera (so I can make a living!), hmmmn....

Tagging three people. I hate to do this to ya'll but I gotta pass it on: Dawn, Chris and Cathy. Stacey says we can do it our not; your choice. Be comforted with the fact that I chose people I really like to know about!
