 So I found this fun little meme I thought would be great to add so people get to know me a little better (and discover my strange little quirks).  Meet Me On Monday is hosted by Acting Balanced where 5 questions are posted each week for us to answer about ourselves and share with all of our readers.

Here are today's Questions:

1. How do you like your eggs? I Love eggs, pretty much any way except sunny side up.  Breakfast is my favorite meal and often times I will have it for breakfast and again for dinner!

2. Who is the last person you spoke to on the phone? I wish I could say someone fun like a friend or family member but nope, just another mortgage broker for work.

3. Do you have a place you keep 'junk' in your home? Um we have several places to stash junk, some drawers, boxes and just plain piles on the dressers. I have been trying to cut back on the junk though, but its a process.

4. What is on your 'spring cleaning' list? Oh lordy, its more of a "spring repair list". We have started working on the last of the electrical work (we have had to re-wire our entire house and are down to the last three rooms), then we have to strip walls and paint 2 rooms, we also have to get the chimney cleaned, AC serviced and replace the duct work, replace our ancient and failing heating system and finally replace the gutters.  So that is just the major list and doesn't include all the piddly little stuff.

5. What blog post have you written recently that you'd like more people to know about? (don't forget to link it up) Um I'm not really sure, I have not posted much of anything other than reviews.  I am not so great at putting together fun discussion articles *shrugs*
Well I just realized that the next season of Game of Thrones starts on April 1st and I have less than 2 weeks to read the second book in the series YIKES! So as soon as I finish the books I am currently reading I will be focusing on A Clash of Kings and the Count of Monte Cristo.
I have been working hard on getting all my collections packed up in my library/pony room.  I have one more box of ponies to pack up and have started moving the books off the shelves. The problem with moving all my books and alphabetizing them as I go, I come across books that I want to read again!!


  1. Wow, that repair project is a lot more insane than I originally thought. :O Hang in there!

    1. Yea, it seems like everything with the house has come to a head at the exact same time! One project at a time and one a month seems to be the way to go. The joys of home ownership!
