Karen at Karen's Ramblings tagged me for this meme.

ACCENT - I definitely have a Southern accent. You'd think it was because I've lived in Oklahoma so many years now but even when I was growing up in New Mexico people would always say they thought I was from Texas.

I DON"T DRINK - alcohol. I hated the taste of beer. I use to drink a little wine, once in awhile, but I don't anymore.

CHORE I HATE - Emptying the dish washer. I hardly use it with just Mickey & I but I do use it when we entertain and I have a lot of dishes.

PETS - We have none. We had cats and dogs when our children were growing up. The last pet we had was a blue Beta fish we named Geronimo which we had about 6 years before it died.

ESSENTIAL ELECTRONICS - My computer first and then my digital camera. I do not have a cell phone. We had one when we traveled but cancelled it when we moved back into our home.

PERFUME - White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor (but I don't like Liz Taylor!!!)

GOLD or SILVER - I like them both. Being from New Mexico I have quite a bit of Silver & Turquoise. My wedding rings are white gold but I quite a bit of gold jewelry too. I have a very loving husband who has bought me a lot of jewelry over the years.

INSOMNIA - I definitely am a light sleeper and usually wake up at 2 or 4 a.m. Sometimes I will go back to sleep and sometimes I do not. I have always been able to function on 5 or 6 hours sleep.

JOB TITLE - Retired I retired from a CPA firm where I was a staff accountant. I was not a CPA.

MOST ADMIRED TRAIT - I am extremely loyal and make long term friendships.

KIDS - 2 daughters and 2 sons. All adults.

PHOBIA - I don't think I have any.

RELIGION - I hate to be called religious!!! I am a believer in Jesus the Christ and I consider myself spiritual and not religious. I do not like denominational ism. I have been a member of various Churches: Southern & Independent Baptist, Bible Fellowship, Vineyard Fellowship, Non-denominational. We currently attend an Assembly of God Church but I do not consider myself an Assembly of God. I am a Christian who happens to be attending an Assembly of God Church. which we love and are being fed by a wonderful Pastor and a very active, involved body within the community.

SIBLINGS - I had 3 half-sisters but I was raised as an only child since the youngest was grown and out of the home by the time I was 7.

TIME I WAKE UP - 5 a.m. if not earlier.

UNUSUAL TALENT/SKILL - I played the piano for years, don't much any more. I am a very fast typist and extremely good with numbers. I would not qualify any of this as "unusual".

VEGETABLE - I do not like okra, which is a very common vegetable in Oklahoma.

WORST HABIT - Back seat drivings. Drives my husband crazy!!!

X-RAYS - Chest and one MRI on my back.


I am tagging the following 5 people:






As always if you choose to play please do so and then tag 5 people of your choice. You are under no obligation, however, and if you choose not to play that's quite alright.

Pen of Jen said...

I'll play, and I will let you know when I complete it:) I am still working on fixing or making sure things do not crash my blog again!!
Oh and I loved all that you are neat!!!

This was a really fun meme to read!! =) I don't like emptying the dishwasher either. In fact, tonight I hand washed a bunch of dishes just because I would rather do that than put away the clean ones in the dishwasher. Silly!! I don't drink any alcohol, either... I just don't like it!!

Myrna said...

I don't like the dishwasher thing either! I like having it, just don't like emptying it.

Nesting For Natalie said...

A southern accent?! I never knew. Knowing, I tried to make my northern mind think in your accent to read your responses :)!

Fun to get to know you better!

Lori said...

That was fun to read and learn more about you again.

Sharon Brumfield said...

I loved your comments on Religion. I would have to say I feel the same way. I go to a baptist church--but I am a Christian or a Christ follower.
I love lasagna too. :)

Annie said...

That was a fun read Susan! I did mine too. Okra is pretty good to me, especially when mom fries it :o)... but I like it pickled too. I am so weird about food textures I almost can't believe I like okra given it's nasty texture. I like your religion answer. I am a back seat driver too, well, I never let anyone else drive these days.

Susie said...

Memes are such a fun way to learn a bit more about our blogging friends.
I like lasagna too, but we love okra, fixed almost anyway.
No accent here in CA that I can hear, although other people say we talk differently (is that an accent?)LOL

inspired said...

yes i hate being called religious also.. Christianity is a way of life ;o]

Frazzled Farm Wife said...

I enjoyed reading your answers!

My husband hates it when I "back seat drive" too...I just can't help myself!

Michelle-ozark crafter said...

Knit-Wit said...

Fun learning more about you. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, you have a beautiful southern accent and it makes me want to chat with you again.

I've learned some trivia about you today, how fun. Maybe I'll grab hold of this and post it just to let you learn a bit more about me.

So, I guess I have an accent too. I can still hear you on the phone. You were so thought I sounded different than you expected. I'm from Michigan you know. We talk through our noses, hehe.

Jennifer in MS said...

I emjoyed reading more about you! I love what you said about religion too! I totally agree.

Have a blessed day!

candy said...

I enjoyed reading your meme and having more insight into your personality......

Thank you for visiting and wishing my daughter a happy birthday...Betty

jennifer said...

A Captured Reflection said...

Thanks for sharing yours. I loved them.

Momma Roar said...

I'm so with you on emptying the dishwasher! Can't they just stay in there all nice and clean until we need to use them? :)

This was a cute one, I want to do this next week.

Susan, just so you know. I don't care if it's been 7 months or 7 years, I believe when the Lord brings us together He is the author of the friendship. He made no mistake the day he drew my attention to "Penless Writer" and what she had to say. I started reading that day and was hooked. It wasn't so much just words, but a connection of the heart.

Crystal said...

That was fun, Susan! The dishwasher job is not fun at our house either but I really dislike vacuuming. I feel like I'm getting to know you better with each post :))

Unknown said...

That was a great list, Susan. As usual, I learned some new things.

My poppy seed bread is made in a bread machine. I'll gladly forward the recipe if you'd like to email me.

i have a question. a beta fish can live 6 years? i've been hoping my son's will die. he's only had it a few months. lol.

MightyMom said...

Kelli said...

That was fun to read, Susan! I feel the same as you about the religion!
