award-sisterhood (1)    Val,  at My Virtual Vineyard, answered 10 questions last week in connection with Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award and nominated me to join in. So I'll give the questions a go. I am electing to not pose 10 more questions to others, however. Thanks, Val!

One of my favorite parts of blogging, is the connection with other bloggers.  Getting to know them, their lives and their thoughts and feelings, and become connected, across the world and honoring and respecting one another.  It’s way better than reality TV and I enjoy reading blogs as much as I enjoy reading novels. Every morning (or later) I travel the world and share in the joys and sorrows of friends.So here are my answers to the questions.  I am happy to share and read what others are sharing.

1.  Talk about your favorite kind of music. I'm not sure I have a favorite kind of music, although I'm kind of drawn to the old music of the 60s and 70s, Johnny Mathis, The Beatles, Elvis, etc. Since I now live in Texas, I'm getting more used to the Country Music. My daughter is in advertising for a country radio station, so I always have it on now when I'm driving. It grows on y'all.

2.  What’s the hardest thing about being you? That's a tough one. I guess it's that I don't say "no" as often as I might, always wanting to help out when someone needs something. This might be a friend, a neighbor, or a child, but I do tend to get myself stressed with too many obligations.

3.  Describe a typical family get-together at your house. There would be food, for sure. The kids have special things they enjoy, so that would be on the fare. We always say a prayer before eating. There would be wine offered and lots of conversation, often getting into a lot of noise, but seldom arguments.

4.  What do you consider your biggest accomplishment so far? My own writing and getting publishing has been a joy, but still my greatest joy was seeing my mother at a book signing at 82, having helped her write her book.

5.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I guess it would be that I would not be so quick to be self-critical. I'm working on it, but am my own worst critic.

6.  If you could spend time with a book character or historical figure, who would it be? In my Sunday School class we are studying a book by Chip Ingram "Good to Great in God's Eyes". Chip indicates that you need to look for good people in your life: a Paul, who is a mentor; a Timothy, who looks up to you; and a Barnabas who shares your ups and downs in confidence. So I would really like to go back to visit with Paul. What an incredible Christian he was, enduring so much tragedy and many challenges in his ministry.

7.  What is your favorite vacation memory? That would have to be our Mediterranean Cruise several years ago, when I saw things in the world I had never expected to see in my life.

8.  What would you like to receive as a present? Kind of depends on who it is from, but generally any item that demonstrates thought and knowing me. Otherwise it's just more 'stuff'.

9. What’s one thing on your bucket list? We would really like to make another trip across the 'pond', this time to England, Wales, and Ireland. I haven't really looked into it as yet, but hopefully in the next year or so.

10.  One thing that few people know about me is . . . . . . .You will have to keep guessing on this one. If I told you, then too many people would know!  ;-)

Linking also to Two Shoes Tuesday with the words You and I. Thanks Val for the nomination!
