A to Z Survey

Kind of a silly but fun Saturday post...  I’ve been seeing these A to Z surveys all over the place so I decided to do one, too. But in all honesty, I have changed a few of the questions to suit my own tastes... that's very typical of me!

A – Activity you like best:  Tennis, golf, running, lifting weights... I just like movement of all kinds. I have never been good at sitting still.

B – Biggest Fear:  I am afraid of bats, and occasionally worry about failing health as I get older.

C – Current Obsession:  Losing 5 pounds.

D – Drink You Like Best: Coffee... I have a cup beside me now.  I like it hot or iced. Black or white... never any sugar!

E – Earliest Memory:  Going to Sunday School with my Daddy as a toddler and putting pennies in the church box on my birthday.

F – Favorite Song: I have a few oldies that I love... Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers, and Brown-Eyed Girl by Van Morrison come quickly to mind.

G – Grossest Memory:  When I was a very little girl I found I had stepped on my sister's pet mini frog and squashed it!  Ugh!

H – Hometown: I was born in a small town in Alberta because the even smaller town my family lived in had no hospital. We moved to Calgary when I was a toddler and I consider that my home town. I lived there till I was an adult.

I – In Love With: The Captain 

J – Jealous Of: People who travel more than I do!

K – Kindest Person You Know: My older sister is the nicest, kindest person I know. I have honestly never heard her say a mean word about anyone and she is generous and extremely patient.

L – Longest Relationship: My husband. We have been married almost 25 years.

M – Middle Name: Irene

N – Number of Siblings: 2

O – One Wish: That I remain healthy and active to the end! 

P –  Pets you have loved:  Our Springer Spaniels, Penny and Scout, both have passed on.

Q – Question You’re Always Asked: Who cuts your hair?

R – Reason To Smile: I love my life!

S – Song You Last Sang: Up town Funk (You Up)... I hear it on the radio all the time and we get a real kick out of it!

T – Time You Normally Wake Up:  6 to 6:30 a.m.  That is pretty standard for me.

U – Underwear Color: All different colors!

V – Vacation Wishlist: Have lots of places on my wish list... Ireland, Greece to name a couple. I would love to do a European River Cruise too. 

W – Worst Habit: Putting my fingers in my mouth.  Drives The Captain bonkers!

X – X-Rays You’ve Had: Feet, legs, and scans all over my body and internal organs.

Y – Your Favorite Food: Chocolate, peanut butter, frozen cherries, bananas, avocados... it's a very long list of favorites. 

Z – Zodiac Sign: Gemini - The Twins - apparently this is why I find myself seeing both sides of an argument all th time!

Have you done this survey yet?  I hope you will so I can come read it and learn more about you!
