For today’s Wacky Wednesday, I thought I’d list five wacky — maybe not so interesting – facts about me. There is a person behind this computer screen! Honest! 🙂
FIVE INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT ME….
1. I don’t have any difficulty getting up before the crack of dawn on my own without an alarm clock when I’m fishing. I love to fish lakes because it’s the process and wallowing in nature that I adore. Of course, it’s always good when there’s fish sizzling in the breakfast skillet!
2. I’m famous in my circles for my homemade almond rocha and cherry fudge. My writing friends have been known to tell me not to bother coming to events if I don’t walk in with candy. Now that my son is in the army I’ve been adopted by the soldiers he works with, too. Nothing like a bunch of soldiers yelling their “horrays” over the speaker phone!
3. Out of necessity, I own three pairs of shoes: tennis shoes for exercise, crocs to meet civilization requirements [no shirt, no shoes, no service], and flats for those days the snow snakes through the airholes in my crocs. I’m happiest in bare feet. I could so easily move to Maui and never wear shoes. 🙂
4. I have 25 Zebra Finches [estimated since the little buggers refuse to stand in a line and be counted]. Started out with two pair. Didn’t know they breed faster than rabbits, don’t restrict their baby-making activities to springtime, and aren’t too picky about breeding with siblings. Can anyone say “ewwww!”? At first, loved the whole process of watching babies hatched and raised. But, it didn’t take me long to start pulling nests out of the aviary and throwing eggs laid willy-nilly on the floor in the trash. My 4-foot, hexagonal glass aviary sits in the corner of my livingroom. The males make a sound like an itty-bitty goose honk. Too cute!
5. My wonderfully supportive — and understanding — husband moved my 15 cases of TBR books across the country four times, storing them in various garages for ten years, before we finally unpacked them onto bookshelves. It’s like I’ve been blessed by the Good Book Fairy!! The challenge is finding time to read. At this rate, I figure it’ll take me ten years, 4 months, twenty-seven days, and fourteen hours (give or take a few years) to get through what is collecting dust on my bookshelfs. Hey! If I have time to dust, I have time to just read them. Right?!
Shhhh, we’re not telling my dear husband how many titles I’ve put on my new Kindle in past three months. The TBR titles are breeding like…Zebra Finches! 🙂
