1. Well of course I love to cook, (not bake) for other folks.

2. I enjoy my garden, planting and then harvesting the veggies. Not crazy about weeding tho.

3. In the winter months I enjoy crocheting. Most family members all have a afghan to snuggle up in on a cold evening.

4. I love our pets, 2 cats, 2 dogs and wish I could do more for the homeless critters.

5. A couple times a year I love to go to the casino and have the all you can eat crab legs and then play the slots.

Wow Z - what a great thing you did. Ironchef - I'm impressed. It is so fun reading about everyone here - what a great group of friends! Here's mine:

1. I am a christian.
2. My family is my priority in life.
3. I am anally organized - almost to a fault.
4. I worry too much - when I know I shouldn't.
5. I like to drink whisky.

I think these two are related.

And LOL at your use of "almost" after saying "anally organized". In my mind "anally organized" implies "to a fault"... otherwise you'd be simply 'very organized' or someone who 'pays attention to detail'.

Good point Z - I think most who know me would agree - organized to a fault - i have been trying to figure out a way to make this a positive, though.

1. When I was in grade school, my sister and I were running late for the bus. I didn't have my shoes on yet so I climbed into the wheelbarrow and she raced us up the driveway, while I was tying my shoes.
2. I study modern dance and have danced since I was 3.
3. I love to bake more than cook.
4. If there was one thing I'd never have to do again for the rest of my life, it would be laundry.
5. My family is more important to me than anything in this world!

Hmmmm, what to put that can be intriguing . . . . . .

1. I much prefer to cook then to bake.

2. I am a huge animal lover, domestic and wild, and my favorite of each are cousins. For domestic, my favorites are big dogs (no surprise there, eh?) like Labs, Shepherds, Retrievers, Huskies, etc. As for wild, I am 100% sold out mezmerized (sp?) by wolves. This doesn't mean I don't love my two domestic short hair cats me and Mrs. Big Dog have!

3. I was adopted when I was 4 years old, and lived in 2 foster families and with my (biological mother's) parents. A couple years ago I reconnected with my biological mother electronically and via telephone. The jury is still out deliberating if that was the right thing to do. She's heck bent on meeting in person, but I'm not ready, nor do I know if I ever will be.

4. I'd sacrafice most anything to keep a relationship with a friend. I believe relationships with people should be way at the top of the list of things on this earth that have the most value. Maybe not number 1, or even 2, but way up there. Material things are nice, but are so not worth losing a friend for.

5. I have held both a chipmunk and chickadee in the palm of my hand (not at the same time). Both were completely alive and well, though the chickadee was a bit dazed initially. I'll tell the stories to all who ask.

1. I LOVE living on my 21 acres in a rural area where I can do what I wish without the intrusion of other people (homeowners associations, close neighbors, intrusive zoning laws, etc.).

2. I love to read (everything & anything - gardening, cooking, mysteries, biographies, you-name-it) & watch old classic movies (every genre you can imagine - have a collection of over 1,000 DVD's).

3. I love to cook, particularly different ethnic recipes, & maintain a large cookbook library which currently contains well over 100 volumes at the moment.

4. I love to garden - particularly vegetables & herbs -, & have a nice library of gardening books.

5. I love my horses, & of course, my cats, dogs, & cockatoo!!
