Tagged! And now I’m “it”! Am I up for the challenge? You bet. My blogger learning curve needs to be stretched. Here goes.
1. WHAT DID YOU DO 10 YEARS AGO?
That was the year Dan and I were “in transition” from our life in Bell’ Italia to our life in the suburbs of Atlanta. Sure, we had been living in the suburbs of Milano, but still it was a Big Lifestyle Change for both of us. I lapsed into a bout of depression and was unable to paint, even tho’ everyone told me it would be “good therapy”. Watercolor painting requires speed and clear thinking, qualities which had temporarily diminished in my life. A sure sign that I had rebounded and recovered occurred the day I was able to open up my Winsor-Newton travel palette and begin a fresh start. . . .
2. FIVE ITEMS ON YOUR TO-DO LIST TODAY:
1. compose and mail out ministry letters
2. tell Lauren about the red-tag sale at Target for the “monkey” theme she adores
3. meet Patty at Einstein Bagels for our R&R celebration
4. simmer pinto beans all day to make a batch of refried beans for bean burritos
5. call Linda (my sister) to wish her Bon Voyage for their sailing lessons in the Virgin Islands
3. SNACKS I ENJOY:
an apple a day (confession: I’m a “granola”, attended college in CA in the 60’s!)
Trader Joe’s cereal fig bars
sourdough pretzels
new treat—my German grandson introduced me to yummy yogurt covered dried cherries
4. WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE A BILLIONAIRE?
I wd. set up a Reformation study center, combined with cultural art events and studies, in a Tuscan farmhouse with a winery. Kinda like Agritourism, A Semester Abroad and Early Retirees meet Francis Schaeffer, Gene Veith and John Frame and interact with contemporary artists, musicians and craftsmen.

The following bloggers I pass this challenge onto are:
