The Friday Five + Twenty!

Book: Gingham Mountain by Mary Connealy--YAY!
Song: Life's A Dance by John Michael Montgomery

This little Meme was zinging around Facebook a week or so ago, and after being tagged a few times, I finally succumbed and filled it out. Now it will do double duty for me as a Friday Five. :)

1. I'm from Kansas.
2. I have been married to Peter for 19 years.
3. I have the two best kids on the planet.
4. I write historical romances.

7. I've lost sixty pounds in the last eight months.

14. I am addicted to history museums.
15. I could stare at Lake Superior for hours.
16. I'm a middle child.

25. I'm an alum of Calvary Bible College.
So there you go, more than you wanted to know about me. :)


  1. I'll have to make sure to buy fresh cherries when you are here, just to see you tie a knot in the stem. I never realized how multi-talented you are (-;

  2. Ditto what CJ said--I want to see! Talk about talent!

  3. Is that cherry-stem tying a yank thing? My sis-in-law can do that. LOL

    BTW, what do you sub for fish? Don't they have some important nutrient that we need... ?

    This was interesting. How about 20 more? LOL

  4. Jess, Don't know about it being a yank thing. :D A yank from South Dakota taught me how to do it.

    As to what I might be missing in my diet by not eating fish? I have no idea...iodine?

    The fact that fish is supposed to be brain food sure explains a lot about me, don't it? LOL

  5. I love the Friday Five. And to get 20 bonus--what a treat!
