My answers

1. What are you wearing?

Navy sweat pants, white sweat shirt, houseshoes. It's freezing here!

2. What have you eaten today or plan on eating?

Yogurt for breakfast. Ham sandwich, diet orange Crush for lunch. Not sure about dinner...I may cook a pot of Cowboy Chili.

3. What are your plans this weekend?

We're hoping to stay in. Even the weathermen are advising it. Therefore, I'll be in sweats and jammies all weekend!

4. Do you believe in spirits/ghosts? Have you had a spirit/ghostly experience?

I've had a couple. I became a believer when I thought someone was touching me but they weren't. It was my recently deceased father I believe.... since we were having his Will read at the time. :(

5. Are you working on any little projects/crafts at the moment?

I'm starting ribbon and decorative tape crafts, along with decoupage. I'm getting Spring pots decorated first, along with little decorated apothecary jars. I'm also on a spray painting binge. Had to order spray paint (Krylon) from Hobby Lobby so I could get the colors I wanted.

6. What is the color scheme of your kitchen?

White, red, yellow and vintage green. Light and dark green.

7. As much as you love them, do your pets drive you insane at times?

VERY much so, especially today. Which is why I asked the question! lol

8. If you had only 2 colors to use inside your house, what would they be?

Pale yellow and white.

9. Have you been, or are you going skiiing this winter?

No. I've never been snow skiing, but I always thought I'd be good at it since I can water ski.

10. List your TV watching guilty pleasures. It can be more than one show. We won't tell. :)

Oh Lordy. Beveryly Hills Housewives, Kim and Kourtney Take New York. I watch two reality shows but I'm open about them. Big Brother and Survivor.

RE: February Getting to Know You

1. What are you wearing? Khaki slacks with a black V-neck sweater, brown loafers

2. What have you eaten today or plan on eating?
Breakfast: I made us fresh strawberry, banana & vanilla yogurt smoothies; Jimmy Dean Low Fat Breakfast Sandwiches (egg whites, multi-grain bagel, low fat turkey sausage and cheese), black coffee, fresh fruit

3. What are your plans this weekend? Pizza & DVD night tonight w DH & DD; tomorrow discuss plans for bedroom closet renos . . . the gal from California Closets was here today from 10-12 measuring and giving me ideas!

4. Do you believe in spirits/ghosts? Have you had a spirit/ghostly experience?
Good grief, yes! My house has been haunted and I've lived with ghosts here for 19+ years. The happy one was like my second mom. She showed up right after she died unexpectedly while our house was being built and stuck around daily until her DH, like my second dad, passed on about 7 years ago. Now both show up now and then, but not daily anymore. We've never seen either one of their spirits, but glasses move, water and lights turn on and off by themselves, and they physically bump us to make themselves known. Much more, too, but I don't want to make this too long.
The other one, an older, not-so-happy Native American man has been seen by several people over the years. We actually had to have a very well-known (and used) group of "ghost-hunters" come out here and get this ghost to move on. He scared the heck out of a few people walking through the bedroom part of the house or standing brooding in the corner of a room at night. I never saw him myself, but I've been told that I attract ghosts, for some reason.
I'm very glad the Indian has finally moved on. That one made me nervous!

5. Are you working on any little projects/crafts at the moment?
Planning multiple closet renos

6. What is the color scheme of your kitchen?
Creamy white with medium-dark knotty cherry cabs; accent colors are red, green and yellow.

7. As much as you love them, do your pets drive you insane at times?
Not the Tibetan Spaniel, she's a little sweetheart. The dobie, though he's a sweetheart too, sometimes drives us all nuts as he drools and then shakes his head . . . gross!

8. If you had only 2 colors to use inside your house, what would they be?
White & Soft Green

9. Have you been, or are you going skiing this winter?
Heading to Taos later this month

RE: February Getting to Know You

1. What are you wearing? Lavender jammies and a plaid robe and pink sandals.

2. What have you eaten today? 1/4 of a BLT, left over from DH's lunch yesterday. Always coffee. Don't know about this evening, probably take-out.

3. What are your plans this weekend? DH will do grocery-shopping tomorrow. I am taking things easy, had a colonoscopy yesterday and my insides have not yet resumed working normally. (Got a clean bill of health, doc wants another one in ten years!) This evening DH and I are signing off and paying in full for our "funeral" arrangements. I put "funeral" in quotes because there won't be a funeral, just a simple cremation and no service. Our "urns" are 100% green and biodegradible when placed in water (a PacNW river). Our children know about this and have agreed. Of course they frowned and said "we don't want to talk about this", but they did agree. We are very, very happy to have our plans complete - nothing unpleasant for the surviving spouse and offspring to worry about, no hasty decisions to be made. I hope this isn't TMI! The question was asked!

4. Do you believe in spirits/ghosts? Sometimes yes, sometimes no.

5. Are you working on any little projects/crafts at the moment? There are three walls in our home that need picture collections hung gallery-style, so am working on that.

6. What is the color scheme of your kitchen? Very very soft terra cotta walls and tile counters, accents in lemon yellow, pear green, and lavender.

7. As much as you love them, do your pets drive you insane at times? No. We have two beautifully-behaved, adorable, affectionate kitties. We are pitiful in our love for them. Aside from our children and DGS, they are the loves of our lives.

8. If you had only 2 colors to use inside your house, what would they be? White and tan.

9. Have you been, or are you going skiing this winter? No! I broke my leg last summer and am still shaky when descending stairs. No skis, not ever.

10. List your TV watching guilty pleasures.

Don't we get to list the TV we watch proudly? Oh well...

a. Dancing With The Stars. Can't help it, must watch, but turn off the sound if there's no dancing.

b. Project Runway.

c. About a year ago, Austin Scarlett, of Project Runway fame, had a cute little show with another designer. They would go somewhere in flyover country, from Virginia to Wyoming, and make a beautiful dress for a woman who was having a special occasion, but who didn't have the money, means, or access to good clothes. It was sort of hokey but I loved it! My favorite was an older woman who had lived her entire life in flannel shirts and dungarees and was being honored for her serious work in animal rescue. This show in general had melt-my-heart moments.

RE: February Getting to Know You

1. What are you wearing?
This ... with denim leggings and tall brown high-heeled boots.

2. What have you eaten today or plan on eating?
I'm not sure I want be honest on this one. OK - I had oatmeal and raisins with my morning coffee, cheese crackers as a mid-morning snack, cheese enchiladas and tortilla chips for lunch, followed by Greek yogurt and a bag of jalapeno kettle chips. No wonder I feel bloated and disgusting.

3. What are your plans this weekend?
Maybe do a bit of shopping tomorrow, go to church Sunday morning, and probably just piddle around the house. Supposed to be cold, so doubt we'll feel like getting out much.

4. Do you believe in spirits/ghosts? Have you had a spirit/ghostly experience?
Yes, I believe there is an unseen world, and souls live on beyond the body. Beyond hearing strange, unexplained noises and having that sensation that there is a presence in the room, I have not had a ghostly experience - and I can't say for sure that what I did experience was anything beyond my own imagination.

5. Are you working on any little projects/crafts at the moment?
I have half a kitchen that needs to be painted. The paint cans, tray, roller and brushes are all sitting out, just taunting me - but for some reason, I just lack the motivation to finish the job.

6. What is the color scheme of your kitchen?
A soft, vintage green on the walls, red cabinets and woodwork, black sink with white subway tile bordered in black, Mexican Saltillo tile floor, and touches of gold/yellow here and there in the curtains, lampshades on chandelier, etc.

7. As much as you love them, do your pets drive you insane at times?
Oh Lord yes.

8. If you had only 2 colors to use inside your house, what would they be?
Soft green and rich red.

9. Have you been, or are you going skiiing this winter?
Nope.

10. List your TV watching guilty pleasures. It can be more than one show. We won't tell. :)
Lately I've been watching Mistresses and An Idiot Abroad: The Bucket List.

RE: February Getting to Know You

2. What have you eaten today or plan on eating? Cooking dinner now ... butternut squash bisque with fresh ginger and curry and salad with fresh garden greens with a homemade citrus dressing

3. What are your plans this weekend? Finishing the brick walkway in the back yard that dh worked on all week.

7. As much as you love them, do your pets drive you insane at times? No, but having a new kitten in the house is full of fun and occasionally trying times.


10. List your TV watching guilty pleasures.

Not sure what a guilty pleasure is ... maybe Watch What's Live and Dancing With the Stars? Oh, and Bethanny. There's another thread about worthwhile TV. If I'm spending the time watching TV it's worthwhile to me. ;)

Faves are 60 Minutes, The Good Wife, Glee, Modern Family, CSI (Las Vegas), Person of Interest, and The Mentalist.

Lynn, I watched the first episode of Alcatraz. I liked it, but wondered if subsequent episodes would have the same plot line. I haven't seen it since.

RE: February Getting to Know You

1. What are you wearing?
Still wearing the ethnic print T I wore to work, but took off the horrible fitting new jeans (that's what I get for buying without trying) in favor of some comfy jersy shorts, and my socks.

2. What have you eaten today or plan on eating?
Not a good food day- croissant & coffee for breakfast, chicken salad on 12 grain & Diet Pepsi for lunch, greek yogurt for afternoon snack & a piece of left over chicken breast with marinara sauce & a big bowl of nuked veggies with a diet pepsi for dinner. I'm stuffed!

3. What are your plans this weekend?
Going to pick up some end tables from CL in another town. I go there for work a lot, but never get to stop into the cute stores I see, so this will be an excuse to hit them up, too. Then might do some yard work, but probably will work on another project instead. Sunday going scrapping with my friend.

4. Do you believe in spirits/ghosts? Have you had a spirit/ghostly experience?
Oh yes, mulitple encounters

5. Are you working on any little projects/crafts at the moment?
More than a few! I'm working on reupholstering a chair, and I'm going to make the tables I'm picking up into dog beds (thanks Pinterest!!) and I also plan to scan a lot of photos so I can start scrapping them.

6. What is the color scheme of your kitchen?
Walls and most cabs are a glazed cream, counters & appliances are black, backsplash & adjoining dining area are a deep red, and one wall of cabs is espresso.

7. As much as you love them, do your pets drive you insane at times?
Are you kidding me? Right now I have a cat sitting on the top of the chair above my head, another crowding my lap. One is stalking the dogs and the fourth is hiding in wait for me to go into the bathroom. Two dogs are playing tug of war, another is guarding her spot from them and a fourth is staring at me, drooling.

8. If you had only 2 colors to use inside your house, what would they be?
Hmmmm....Orange and black.

9. Have you been, or are you going skiiing this winter?
Nope. Not a fan.

10. List your TV watching guilty pleasures. It can be more than one show. We won't tell. :)

Dark cherry cabs, white granite, very light stone tiled floor, neutral walls, accents are aqua and coral red.

7. As much as you love them, do your pets drive you insane at times?
No pets at the moment.

8. If you had only 2 colors to use inside your house, what would they be?
Too difficult! I can't imagine being limited to just two. Aqua would probably be one and ivory/soft white would be another.

9. Have you been, or are you going skiiing this winter?
Unfortunately no! DH has knee injury. Will go as soon as he is able.

10. List your TV watching guilty pleasures. It can be more than one show. We won't tell. :)

As far as shows, I mostly watch movies (or Netflix). I can't recall a regular show I've watched (ok, that most of you would know of. I watch Manna-Fest all the time and Jentezen Franklin, whom I have no guilt over) I get news from the internet.

RE: February Getting to Know You

1. What are you wearing?
jeans, tee shirt, button front sweater, boots

2. What have you eaten today or plan on eating?
tea, Greek yogurt, homemade granola, blueberries. It's great I saw this question in the morning and didn't have to admit to my whole day of eating.

3. What are your plans this weekend?
Nothing special.

4. Do you believe in spirits/ghosts? Have you had a spirit/ghostly experience? No

5. Are you working on any little projects/crafts at the moment?
I'm working on multiple craft projects for my women's club contest. I made: two scrapbook pages with a patriotic theme, two 3-strand beaded bracelets, a decorated picture frame, and a birthday card. I've never done any of these things before and it shows. The frame and scrapbook pages have potential to be winners.
The scrapbook pages feature my grandfathers in their WW1 uniforms. I think the pages look pretty good but I don't know how they are judged. The frame is a black frame with foreign coins glued to it and the picture is of Venice. I hope it looks better than that sounds. I carefully picked coins with interesting shapes, types of metals, and images.

6. What is the color scheme of your kitchen?
Is messy a color?

7. As much as you love them, do your pets drive you insane at times?
No pets. My husband sometimes drives me insane.

8. If you had only 2 colors to use inside your house, what would they be?
Hmmm, tough question. Vanilla Bean and green, maybe?

9. Have you been, or are you going skiiing this winter?
No, I never enjoyed skiing since it takes place outside in the snow. My brother & nephew skied inside a mall in the United Arab Emirates. I would be willing to try that but since I have no plans to ever visit the UAE it doesn't seem likely to happen.

10. List your TV watching guilty pleasures. It can be more than one show. We won't tell. :)
I guess it's watching The Daily Show and The Colbert Report in the morning after I get home from the gym. It's not guilt as in "I shouldn't be watching this drivel" but it does delay my getting ready process.

RE: February Getting to Know You

1. What are you wearing?

Jeans, old favorite crewneck green sweater, gym shoes.

2. What have you eaten today or plan on eating?

Had a little leftover tuna salad open face on a low-carb tortilla, with a bit of cheese sprinkled on top, browned in the toaster oven on broil. Coffee.

3. What are your plans this weekend?

Work on the third bedroom project, look for a new purse, cut my hair.

4. Do you believe in spirits/ghosts? Have you had a spirit/ghostly experience?

Not sure what I think. I am an atheist, so no 'heaven/hell' approach, but I guess I have heard or read things that make me wonder about the spirit plane of existence.

5. Are you working on any little projects/crafts at the moment?

Bedroom project mentioned above. Older DS moved to KC last summer, turning his room into more of a guestroom, my getaway room, in 'design on a dime' fashion. LOL

6. What is the color scheme of your kitchen?

Um, no real color scheme. Mostly almond/beige in flooring, backsplash, counters, wall color. Black appliances and accents, old oak cabinets.

7. As much as you love them, do your pets drive you insane at times?

Kassi the dog is a dear, but there are moments....

8. If you had only 2 colors to use inside your house, what would they be?

Shades of greens (more in the olive, moss tones) and probably warm beiges, creams. Third color would be black.

9. Have you been, or are you going skiiing this winter?

Haven't skied since I did it a few times in the early 80's. Not a fan, especially since it involves cold weather, ice and snow.

10. List your TV watching guilty pleasures. It can be more than one show. We won't tell. :)

No guilty pleasures - nothing on TV that is a 'can't miss' for me. I do watch "the Good Wife", "Hot in Cleveland" and things on HGTV and Food Network, sometimes TV Land or Nick at Night. Have been watching DVDs of "The West Wing" with younger DS over the last couple of months - really enjoying that.

1. What are you wearing?
Grey yoga capris, red t-shirt, grey cardigan & slippers.

2. What have you eaten today or plan on eating?
Coffee, banana & almonds so far. I think I feel like snacking throughout the day so it will probably be pretzels, cheese, apple, celery & carrot sticks, cottage cheese, etc. For dinner I'm grilling bison burgers.

3. What are your plans this weekend?
Didn't get home last night until 4am and I need to sleep some more. I really want to just veg but today is shaping up to be a beautiful sunny, crisp day so we will probably get some yard work done. Tomorrow - who knows?

4. Do you believe in spirits/ghosts? Have you had a spirit/ghostly experience?
No. I'm an atheist and as such don't believe in the supernatural.

I love watching that totally stupid show, "Once Upon A Time." It was made by the creators of Lost (which I really loved) so I started watching and now I can't stop. It's so silly and makes no sense but I like it for some reason.

Kelly, I learned something new ... didn't realize atheism meant no spirits too. Thought it was just a religious thing.

I loved LOST too, but gave up on Once Upon A Time after the second or third episode.

RE: February Getting to Know You

Natal, Atheism refers to one's lack of belief in gods, so technically an atheist can believe in the supernatural. However, most arrived at atheism through skepticism, and free/critical thinking so a ghost-believing atheist seems kind of odd.

RE: February Getting to Know You

A quick interruption for this recipe for natal....

Jen Wardell's low-carb Spinach Bisque Soup

2 T finely diced onion
1 T butter
1 10oz pkg frozen spinach
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
1 cup 1/2 and 1/2
1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
4oz cream cheese cubed
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
salt and pepper to taste

In a skillet, brown onion in butter. In a large saucepan, start the frozen spinach simmering in broth. Add browned onion to broth. When spinach is cooked (no longer frozen and warmed through), add remaining ingredients.
Heat through until cheeses melt.

Makes 4 cups

I usually double this recipe and have used both chicken or beef broth, depending on what I have on hand in the freezer. I also use heavy cream rather than the 1/2 and 1/2. This freezes well.

7. As much as you love them, do your pets drive you insane at times?
Yes, the dog always barks at the wildlife and must be let in and out to chase off deer. It is somewhat amusing, but a pain more often than not.

8. If you had only 2 colors to use inside your house, what would they be?
If I were limited to two, I think I would just paint everything BM Linen White, and hang lots of art.

9. Have you been, or are you going skiiing this winter?
Yes! My husband, myself, and our kids are avid and dare I say expert skiers. I will ski 18 days this season, at Snowbasin, Powder Mountain, Big Sky, Moonlight Basin, Vail, Wintergreen, and our all-time favorite, Alta. It's not a great snow year, but still a lot of fun. I love to hike to the peaks and chutes and ski down.
