10 Years Ago.....

Seeing as all I'm knitting right now are submission swatches I don't have any thing to show you...however Rosemary has helpfully supplied me with some blog content by tagging me with this meme:

"The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer."

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
I was a freshly married lassie transplanted from Scotland and working for a whitewater rafting company in northern California with my new husband..he raft guided and I organized the food for the trips and tagged along when I could!

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
Well I'm not much of a to-do list kind of person but things I may or may not accomplish today are- getting my submissions together, starting to pack up the house a wee bit (we're moving into a new rental), homeschooling the kids, putting some beans in the sprouter (easy you may say but for some reason I haven't got around to it all week)...and perhaps packing up the car for a wee cheeky last minute mother's day camping trip!

3) Snacks I enjoy:
Chocolate has to be first, robusto cheese and fig sauce on crackers, baguette dipped in really good olive oil, my husband's salsa with tortilla chips and.....watermelon when it's baking hot (the weather not the watermelon)!

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
This is a weird concept!! First off I think I'd move back to Scotland and buy a lovely detached georgian house in Edinburgh...and also a farmhouse in France that all my family and friends could use....stow some money away and give the rest to charity.

5) Places I have lived:
Eek...I think I'll round mine down as it's a pretty extensive list- Shetland, Brighton (England), The Isle of Rum (west coast Scotland), Edinburgh, London, Dunkeld (Scotland), Annapolis (MD), Eugene (OR), Portland (OR), Coloma (CA), Albertville (France), Lake Tahoe (CA), Western Massachusetts ( 3 different houses one of which we still own), Colorado (twice) and now Fresno (CA)!

7) 6 peeps I wanna know more about:

We have the same taste in snacks. Yum. And, can I visit you in your Georgian manor (when we're billionaires)?

Whitewater rafting - that's amazing! You must have had some really great times. And the cheese and fig sauce sounds yum-my :)
