A tag...

While I was in Montana, two people "Tagged" me, so I thought I'd work on these as I have time. Thanks Hannah for sharing this set of questions~

1. Do you like to write?
~Yes, I've enjoyed writing to friends for many years already and now I enjoy writing on my blog as well. I've started several books too in years gone by, the longest one made it to the 4th chapter!

2. Favorite books?
~As my favorite books are written in my profile, I thought it would be quickest to copy and paste that list here: the Bible, Morning and Evening, Stepping Heavenward, The Basket of Flowers, Hinds Feet on High Places, Before you meet Prince Charming, Paula the Waldensian, Henry and the Great Society, Journey of the Heart, Fascinating Womanhood, books by Christmas Carol Kauffman, Pollyanna, Heidi, Hansi, plus many more! Our friends, the Stovers have gotten us interested in Ballantyne books, so we've been reading and enjoying those as a family now.

3. Do you compose music/write songs?
~I've tried a few times, but all I can think of when trying to come up with an original melody is another song that's already in existence!

4. Do you like poetry?
~Yes, very much--if it's done well and is about a worthy subject. I enjoy writing poems of my own too...

5. Love someone so much who made you cry?
~My Savior, my parents, my siblings and a few dear friends.

6. Broken a bone?
~"Never. I drink raw milk."----This was Hannah's answer, but as it fits me so perfectly too, I thought I'd use it also. (Hope you don't mind, Hannah. :) )

7.Been in a police car?
Not that I remember--unless we had a field trip to the police station when I was little...

8.Been on a boat?
~My brothers & I used to raft a lot in the creek when we lived on our other farm. Other than that, I think the only other times I've been on a boat were: when our family decided to go on the Ferryboat many years ago as a birthday treat for one of us, and the time when Dad & I were in a paddle-boat race at a family camp many years back.

9.Fallen asleep in school?
~No--How can you fall asleep when you're thinking?

10. Did you sing today?
~Yes... My brothers and I usually sing while we're milking (I think we did this morning too,) then I was singing on the way home from taking Dad & Andrew to the combines this afternoon, and I was just singing "Silent Night" with Clyde Bowman and his wife on their CD while making Sour Cream Raisin pie!

11.KFC, Popeyes, or Church's?
~I'm assuming KFC is chicken, and I know I've had fried chicken before, but I'm not sure if it came from that place or not. As for the other two options, I have never even heard of them!

12.Chick-fil-a or What-a-burger?
~A what? Our own home-raised beef or chicken is fine with me!

13.Starbucks of McCafe?
~I've never tasted coffee, so wouldn't know which I'd dislike more. :)

14.What's your favorite time of year?
~It's so hard to chose! I really like Spring because of all the new life and the joy of having warmer days, but then I also really enjoy Fall, when we are able to slow down a bit and enjoy the fruit of our labors. Winter's nice too, as there's more time to visit people (when the roads are good) and there's more time for writing, sewing, etc... Then there's Summer--which is nice in it's own way, but is especially nice because that's usually when there are picnics, weddings, Prairie Days and such to attend... I'm glad we have such definite seasons here in North Dakota!

15.Do you ever talk to yourself?
~Not that I'm aware of. :)

16.Do you have a favorite treat you like to buy on occasion?
~Ummm... Yes--for birthdays we like to buy cheesecake ingredients--including cherry pie filling!

17. Do you believe the Bible is the literal Word of God and is infallible?
~Yes--Most definitely.

18. What's your favorite sport?
~I know very little about sports and have hardly played any, so can I count Foosball as a sport? :) (or Boccee or Croquet?)

19. What color is your ipod?
~I don't have one--so you could say it's a nice shade of invisible...

20. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
~There are two places that I'd really like to see sometime--one being the ocean and the other, "The House on the Rock".

21.If you could go to any fictional place, where would you go?

~A fictional place? Well, the nicest fictional place to go to--that I can think of currently, would be to visit Willy Wonka's chocolate factory--to see his chocolate river. :)

22.Do you love to write or do you just like writing? Or do you write at all?
~This resembles the other question about writing! I guess I would say that I like writing, but don't get those moments that Mother talks about where she just HAS to write, (she LOVES to write!)

23.What do you want to be when you’re a grown up?
~I guess I'm about as much of a grown up as I'll ever be already! My dream though, like many other young women, is to have a home of my own (meaning a loving husband, many children, animals and a large garden... :) )

24.Favorite animal?
~I like many different kinds of animals, so it would be hard to say what my favorite is. Dogs and cows rank at the top, and I think pea-fowl are very lovely, but we've never raised them. Geese are nice to look at too, but they do make such a mess of their water!

25. Favorite song?
~I really like the hymns, "All things bright and beautiful;" "For the beauty of the earth;" and "Be Thou my vision," although there are SO many nice songs out there! For my high school graduation, I learned and sang, "I'll walk with God," so that's one of my favorites now too. Oh yes, also "His eye is on the sparrow..."

26.Do you like school?
~I remember some times when I really didn't like school and then I have good memories about school too. I do enjoy learning more now that I'm out of formal schooling and can research the things I'm interested in more.

27. Are you a people person?
~A social butterfly I am not! I do enjoy a good conversation with a friend though. :) I admire people who can just come up with things to say at any given moment--to anyone and everyone they come into contact with...

28. Do you like to talk?
~I'd rather listen......

29.Favorite food?
~Tacos are very delicious... I'm not sure if they're my favorite food or not, but I like them a lot!

30. Hobbies?
~Blogging. :) (Plus a few other things...)

31. Favorite author?
~I can't really say that I have one favorite author, as there are so many good ones out there. So, I guess the authors of my favorite books (like: Hannah Hurnard; Helen Andelin; Christmas Carol Kauffman...) would be my favorite authors.

32. Favorite weapon?
~ I don't see how Hannah's answer could be any better, so I'll just agree with her:
Hebrews 4:12:
"For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and morrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart."

33.Is this a fun tag or are you getting bored?
~I'm enjoying it~

34.Do you like Hannah Montana and all those girly people and movies like Highschool Musical?
~I don't imagine I'd like these movies, and I don't really intend to ever find out.

35.What are you scared of?
Also, I used to be VERY scared of playing music or singing in public, but God's helped me a lot with that and it only makes me a bit nervous now to do those things...

36. Favorite flower?
~I think almost all flowers are beautiful, but my favorites are Pansies.

37.What is the expression on your face?
~A sleepy one.......... :)

38. Color of your eyes?
~A nice, greenish-brown color that I inherited from my dad.

Well, that's the end of this questionnaire. Did you learn anything about me that you didn't know before? :)

I'd like to "Tag" anybody who's reading this who would like to answer these questions too.

I liked reading all your answers!
And no, I don't mind at all that you used my answer to the "have you broken a bone" Q. I wish everyone could could say they drink raw milk!
