Dear Readers,
I am so very sorry I have not been posting within the last few weeks!!! I am blogging a lot, but then I never post anything!!!:) Besides, nothing very exciting at all h
as been happening with me:).
I do so hope that you have been enjoying the last few warm days o
f summer, while autumn is pressing summer
to go:).

Johanna and Miss Anne tagged me! I am so sorry I did not post Anne's tag sooner
Here is the tag from Anne:
Here are the rules.....
1. You do not have to do the tag if you get tagged!2. You answer the questions then come up with however many of your own you want.
3. You have fun with my 50th post tag.

(1) Would you rather have a cat or dog? Not really certain on that. I rea
lly like cats (if they are sweet), but I would much prefer a dog's affection (although, what stops me is the maintenance;)

(2) Do you like to cook? I love cooking, especially with my mom! Baking I like just slightly better, just because of the super sweet results:)
(3) What would you do with 1 million dollars? Probably, give s
ome to extend my church, install a huge English knot garden (with complete maze:) filled with herbs in our back yard (with loads of lavender, build an apothecary, and buy lots of Regency dresses (with accessories of course;)
(4) Do you prefer being outside in the sunshine or inside reading? Both. In fact, reading outside would be the best of both worlds, but it seems like I have been spending much more of my time in-of-doors of late. About a year ago, I would have probably been outside much more than now.
(5) Do you read my blog often? K, is that a trick question???

(6) Do you like big houses or little houses? Hmmm.... Alt
hough, I do think it would be fun to have a huge castle-like house (complete with secret passageways) where you could get lost, I think I would be very content with a small English cottage with a serene little garden.
(7) Do you like starting your own tags or getting tagged? Getting tagged, but I have never made one;)!
(8) If I dropped $10 by accident would you (a) return it to me? (b) go to a store and by as much stuff as you can get? or (c) donate it to charity? I would return it to you. One time, my dad found ten dollars lying on the ground at the park, the same day I found a quarter and a penny as well:) Then another time, I found $5 in a bush!

(9) Do you like Janette Oke books better or Laura Ingalls Wilder? Never really been interested in either.
(10) Brownies or cupcakes? Cupcakes.

(11) Have you ever had some beverage come out of your nose? No, and I really do not want that to ever occur in my life!!!:D

Now, I am supposed to add one...
(12) How long have you been blogging?

  • I sometimes cry when Lucy and Susan cry in Aslan's mane, before he goes to the Stone Table.

(11) Contemporary or Historical?
  • Historical fiction!!!!
(12) Science fiction, Fantasy or Horror?
  • Sometimes fatasy, if it is as clean as The Chronicles of Narnia
(13) Hardback, Trade Paperback, or Mass Market Paperback?
  • Paperback preferably.
(14) Barnes and Noble or amazon?
  • Amazon because of lower prices, but I like going to the bookshop!!! I like going to B.and N. where I can get my hands on a book instantly instead of waiting...and waiting....and okay I'll stop!:P
(15) Bookmark or Dog ear?
  • Bookmark! I really do not know what a dog ear is!:)

(16) Alphabetize by Author, Alphabetize by title or no organization whatsoever?
  • Alphabetized by...probably title. Authors are sometimes really confusing because they put the first name after the comma, then the last name before. When you glance at it, you think the first name is really the last...and yes, you get the point!:)

  • KEEP!!!
(18) Little Women or Anne of Green Gables?

  • Little Women. Have not read either of them though!:)

  • Novel

  • Depends. Usually I will TRY to stop (if I have to:) at the ending of the chapter (usually that's the worse because of the cliff hanger!!!:), but sometimes I HAVE to stop in the middle!!!
(21) "It was a dark and stormy night" or "Once upon a time"?
  • "It was a dark and stormy night, not a happy, giddy once-upon-a-time kind of beginning..."
(22) buy or borrow?
  • Depends. Again...I borrowed The Apothecary's Daughter from the library, then I liked it SO much, I purchased it when a really low price arose. However, I have bought books that I have been sorely disappointed with, so, it really depends...
(23) Standalone or series?
  • Both! But if it has a firm ending...just end it there!!!
(24) Tidy Ending or Cliff Hanger?
  • Good, tidy ending!
