Tag--I'm it!

LisaRenee over at Unique Little Bits tagged me to share 5 little bits about me. She and I have been following one anothers' blogs for a little while and find that we are, indeed, somewhat mind meshed about food. These are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 5 facts about yourself.
3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post and list their names, linking to them.
4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

Okay, five things about me:

My favorite time of day: When everyone else is asleep. I love a quiet house almost more than anything. It is the one and only time that I feel I truly get to live my own life and breathe my own air, without sharing with anyone. Sometimes, I walk up and down the hall just so I can stay awake a little bit longer. (I'm not really pitiful; I'm just an introvert, and my job requires me to be around people almost continually--sometimes with a line out the door.)

My favorite words: My youngest granddaughter is 14 months old. Last time I saw her, I was wearing a shirt with sparkly things on it. She kept running her tiny little finger over them, saying, "Pretty, pretty, pretty grandma." I felt young again!

My longest-running craft project: A Christmas stocking I'm cross-stitching for my oldest granddaughter. I started before she was born. She's 9. And a half.

The thing I hate most: Paying bills. I don't know why. I just do. I usually put it off until it just can't wait any more, then end up giving up some of my precious "the house is mine alone" time to do it. Hate that!

My weirdest childhood hobby: I was a ventriloquist. I was really sort of famous locally. My children, however, have never seen me perform. I quit when I was 14, and have never looked back.

I tag:

Erika at Tummy Treasure. I "know" her from the CLBB and read her blog daily. She is just a nice person. Plus, she hasn't been feeling well, so hopefully this will distract her.

Alysha at The Savory Notebook. Another CLBB friend, she and I are like minded in many ways.

Ricki at Diet, Dessert, and Dogs. I've been noticing her blog lately, too, and enjoying it.

Josie, at 1 Kitchen, 2 Dogs, and a Girl. A brand new blogger, and I'd like her to come out and play.

Helene, at Le Cuisine d'Helene, a beautiful bilingual blog. I can barely keep up in one language. She amazes me!

What lovely heart felt sentiments. We are all so uniquely interesting, it's wonderful!

Well, this was fun to read! I'm just checking out your blog for the first time and it's nice to learn a little bit about you. Looks like I'll be getting lots of great vegetarian meal ideas from here, too! :)

I also love that quiet time- either before everyone gets up or after they go to bed. And a ventriloquist, that's impressive.

Lisarene--thanks for tagging me and making me think deep thoughts. It hurt a little, but I managed. :-)

Elisabeth--Thanks for visiting the blog. I've been to yours a few times, although my blog reading time has been sorely lacking lately. My job is interfering with my cooking life!

Deborah--I wish I could manage to get up before everyone, but it never seems to work. DH is an early, early riser, and if I get up, he gets up, too. However, I can always outlast him at night. Thanks for visiting Cooking the Books.

What a great list! I love item #1.

Thanks again for tagging me for this. I finally got some time to think about it and wrote up some points. Can't say it was easy, but it was fun!
