Allrighty then, the garden party is over and the dust around here is settling. This whirling dervish farmgirl has found center and I'm playing catch-up. Dishes, laundry, mail, phone calls, e-mails...oh...and blogging!
While I was flying around making the garden pretty and prep-cooking Diane Mandy over at
Martinis for Two tagged me with a meme. She's on my list of blogs I really enjoy reading every day so I'm more than happy to oblige. I've done one similar to this so some of it may be a bit repetitive.
Five Habits Meme
What was I doing ten years ago?
Working as a corporate trainer for a company that sold framed art. Work involved a lot of travel, mostly in the western half of the United States. My job required that I have a Seattle residence so we had an apartment in West Seattle that looked out over Elliot Bay...I loved watching the ferries go by. I was also taking classes to become a garden designer, I missed a lot of class because I was often in another city for my job.
Five snacks I enjoy in a perfect non-weight gaining world:
Twizzlers, creepy huh...I can't help it, I like the cherry flavor

I'm sorry, I have meme paranoia. I was tickled that Diane tagged me and am pleased to be a part of her meme. When I was a new blogger I read a rather hissy post by someone who didn't like memes and it freaked me out.
If anyone would like to participate please join in on the fun!
