Getting to know you…

Several years ago a dear blogging friend wrote a clever post by inviting people to “get to know her” through a series of very uncommon answered questions. 

This was a fun way to get to know her and I have always remembered that unique post!

Because I have been intermittent (at best) with my posting lately, I think it is the perfect opportunity to borrow her lovely idea & create a similar post! In doing so – whether you have been a faithful follower or brand new to my sight – I do hope you will enjoy getting to know a few new things…at least getting to know some favorite things, about me.

    1. Penny lover, 3 times a lady, Endless love, Stuck on You, Hello, Dancing on the Ceiling, Lady, We are the World…not to mention all the Commodore hits!! LOTS of memories to be looked back upon while his music played on the radio. 🥰 And the toilet paper….doing all that and I still manage to get out of the bathroom quicker than you. 😉🤣😉. 😘😘😘😘


  1. Precious Dawn, I love this post (and YOU) so much! We share many similar things. I love JJ Heller. My music is so eclectic some would say I’m weird. I love The Eagles, Southern Gospel, the soundtrack to Grease, soundtrack to Les Mesirables, Anne Murray, Journey, and so many many more musicals and great artists! Particularly, James Taylor. I love Jesus and red wine. I love writing, but I’m not a baker. I do love gift giving and I LOVE my crocheted 🧶 shawl made by a special friend (hmmm). The newest and best is being called Grammy K! I’m known for hiking,…and now, not so much. Lol
    I workkamped in my RV for 6 seasons and know exactly about folding 🧻 tp, fitted sheets/top sheets, and many other “resort/campground tips and trades” lol. I’ve loved getting to know you and I’m so thankful God put us all together on this journey! Much love and hugs! 💕🙏🏻❤️🤗🥰

    1. Karla! I love ALL the special nuances you shared about yourself. And I value getting to know you better. 💕Of course it warms my heart to discover still more things we have in common, but the different is just as precious because, all combined, it spells out one very special thing… K A R L A!! And I love EVERYTHING about that!! Hang in there, Grammy K you still have much to do and things to fold. Holding you tight in prayer…may you continue to feel so, as you’re wrapped up in loving stitched yarn! 😊

    1. I do HOPE you’ll do a similar/same post Nancy, as I’d love to discover more wonderful/fun things about you!🥰

      Now, that Chilly weather…not liking it “so much.” When the temperatures in Erie are higher than Scottsdale there is something awry. 🤣🤣🤣 Looking forward to celebrating the end of winter with all the locals, indeed!! 🙏🏻
