I Was Tagged!

I was tagged by Deb:

Here are the rules:

1. List these rules on your blog.

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog.


** I teach at the same high school from which I graduated. It was a brand new building back then.



** I spend most of my free time knitting, reading, or on the internet. Occasionally I do housework, but only when necessary!! (Yes, Deb, I copied this one from you.)


**I spent summers in college doing mission work in Sacramento and in Guam.



** I ‘ve been married for 30 years to a wonderful man that I’ve known all my life. Somewhere in my closet I have a hand-carved bow and knife—wooden toy—that he carved for me when we were children. He burned my name on the knife with a magnifying glass.



** I have two wonderful grown children with families of their own. That means 4 really sweet and INTERESTING grandchildren—two 5 year olds and two 1 ½ year olds.


** As I approach retirement, my ambitions are to teach a junior college class or two and to have more time for my church, some volunteer duties, and lots of time to be a grandmother. Of course, I’ll keep knitting in between.



**I would also like to travel, but I’m not sure where. I find that I no longer like to “go” just for the sake of going.


3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

Jane, I do believe you would be a wonderful friend and neighbor. Great meme!

That's really neat that you have the the bow and knife! I agree, Cathy, I think Jane would be a great neighbor and friend.
