i am what i am.

lillian at it’s a dome life sent me this questionnaire  i’ve been working on it for a while. for some reason i had difficulty answering many of these questions…. anyhow, i am what i am.

1.  Where were you born?  i was born in espoo, finland.

2.  Were you named after someone? nope.
3. How many children do you have?  two boys, bear 5yrs and lion 2.5yrs.
4. How many pets do you have?  one kitten, poppy clementine. we just got her!

5. Your worst injury. this is tough to answer. when i asked dear hubby to help, he suggested my c-section with lion. but, i’m not sure that counts as an injury, so i will say my left knee that keeps popping up with pain. it’s an old tree planting injury from over a decade ago!

6.  Do you have a special talent? i don’t like this question. i pass.

7.  Favourite thing to bake?  i’m not a huge baking enthusiast, i get nervous about the precise measuring. i do like to bake breads and cookies and muffins, things that aren’t too finicky and taste YUMMY!

8. Favourite Fast Food. falafels or pizza from our local, independent pizza joint.

9.   Would you bungee jump? maybe. depends on where i am, the mood i’m in, who i’m with and my age. but, yes i would consider it!

10.  What is the first thing you notice about people?  eyes. always their eyes.

11.  When was the last time you cried?  friday night at the book store in the kids section. i was reading this “the sad book” by michael rosen and illustrated by quentin blake. had to buy it!

12.  Any current worries.  all i do is worry, so let’s see… i’m worried about lion’s lazy speech development, i’m worried about what kind of mother i really am for my kids, i’m worried about the future, i’m worried about the weird thing happening on my right big toe nail… i could go on and on.

13.  Name 3 drinks you drink regularly.  coffee, water and vodka tonic.

14.  What’s your favourite book? oohh, tough one, i have so many favourites. “fall on your knees” by ann-marie macdonald has always been a fave, although it’s been over 10 years since i read it. last winter i read, “the book of negroes” by lawrence hill and it changed me. all north americans, especially, should have to read this.

15.  Would you like to be a pirate? absolutely not. pirates are mean, cruel people who kill and terrorize the seas still to this day.

16.  Favourite smells.  karma perfume by lush. fresh baking, curry, and lilacs.

17.  Why do you blog? i started blogging a few years ago, as a way to release the tension and stress life had thrown our way and i needed a way to let go. i recognize the human connections sharing my experiences creates. i try to be brutally honest in my blog, sometimes that is really hard to do, but it keeps me real and grounded.

18. What song do you want played at your funeral?  i want john lennon’s “imagine”. i always cry when i hear this song. always.

19.  What is your least favourite thing about yourself. i am too sensitive and take everything to heart. 

20.  Favourite hobby.  sewing. i don’t do it enough, but when i am in the midst of a project i feel tremendous joy. and, i love gardening in the warmer months. i’m not very good, but each season i learn a little more. 

21.  Name something you’ve done, you never thought you would do? i followed a boy i barely knew and moved to china to be with him. that boy became my husband.

22.  What do you look for in a friend.  loyalty, a sense of humour, honesty and mad drinking skillz!

23.  Favourite fun things to do?  hang-out with my family and friends at the cottage, take photo’s, 

24.  Pet peeves. people who speed when driving, lack of table manners, and when other’s are late.

25.  What’s the last thing that made you laugh? my kids goofing around. they can be so silly!
