A Fun Questionaire or We Have No Computer... :-(

I was planning on sharing a new picture of my progress on "Trick or Treat Heart" tonight but our main computer which contains my recent pictures is down and out for now. Sigh...

We should have it back by the weekend so in the meanwhile I thought I would have some fun. I came across this fun quiz some time ago and thought I would post it and my response on my blog when I was stitching away and didn't have any progress to share. I guess that's now! LOL!

Anyway, here's the fun questionnaire.   I thought it was interesting that of all the things that I have not done there are only two that I would like to do.

Enjoy and feel free to borrow if you think it would be fun! :-)

Cynthia
Windy Meadow


Things you have already done: bold
Things you want to do: italicize
Things you haven’t done and don’t want to: leave in plain font

1. started your own blog
Yes, as you can see here. :-)

2. slept under the stars
Yes, camped a lot when I was a child and teenager.

3. played in a band
Does Middle and High School Band count? If so, the answer is yes.

4. visited Hawaii
Would love to but actually I want to visit Alaska first.

5. watched a meteor shower
Layed in the grass at night and watched. Lot's of fun!

6. given more than you can afford to charity
When I was a lot younger, at times I gave more than I should and then raided savings to make it to the next paycheck.  Does that count?

7. been to Disneyworld
First trip was when I was an adult and we took the kids.

8. climbed a mountain
Kind of as I've hiked mountain trails when I was younger.
Have actually not scaled a mountain.

9. held a praying mantis,
Didn't actually hold it in my hand as it's not good for the praying mantis but have moved them to safer areas.

10. sang a solo
No, and you would not want me to! :-)

11. bungee jumped
No, and have no desire to! LOL!

12. visited Paris
No, and actually it's not high on the places that I want to visit.

13. watched a lightning storm at sea
Yes, I have watched lightening storms over the Atlantic and
over the Chesapeake Bay. I've also watched a lightening
storm over the ocean on my one and only cruise that I've taken.

14. taught yourself an art from scratch
Does needlework count?
My grandmother and mother got me started but I'm mainly self taught.

15. adopted a child
No, but I've done an awful lot of volunteer work with children who are not mine. :-)

16. had food poisoning
Yes, and let's not go there.

17. walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty
Always wanted to do this but on my one and only trip to New York City in the 80's was when it was being repaired so the top was closed to visitors.
Did visit the island and walked around the base.
Then it was closed after 9/11.
They have just reopened the top for tours so maybe I will be able to do this...

18. grown your own vegetables
Oh yes, we grew up in the country and I had my own garden and worked on the family garden.

19. seen the Mona Lisa in France
No

20. slept on an overnight train
As a child we would visit family by going on a train but we never traveled overnight.

21. had a pillow fight
Oh goodness yes! More than once and also as an adult with my kids! :-)

22. hitch hiked
Never as this has not been safe as long as I remember!

23. taken a sick day when you’re not ill
Oh yes, that's why they call them mental health days!

24. built a snow fort
And then had the snow battle! LOL!

25. held a lamb
Not that I can remember but we were around farms and animals a lot when I was a child.

26. gone skinny dipping
Yes, and don't ask for details! LOL!

27. run a marathon
No, and don't plan to.

28. ridden a gondola in Venice
No.

29. seen a total eclipse
Yes. There was a total eclipse over the east coast when I was a lot younger. We made the plates so that you could see the eclipse happening without looking at the sun.

30. watched a sunrise or sunset
Yep.

31. hit a home run
With neighborhood games but I don't think that counts.

32. been on a cruise
Yes, once.

33. seen Niagara Falls in person
No, but I hope to someday.
Can't convince the DH and the kids to go in that direction for vacation.

34. visited the birthplace of your ancestors
No, as that would include Wales, Germany, England, Ireland, and who knows what else. :-)

35. seen an Amish community
Spent my early years in PA and lived next to an Amish farm so saw the real thing.

36. taught yourself a new language
No, as I'm not good with languages.

37. had enough money to be truly satisfied
Yes as I've been fortunate but I also think it's in how you think and what you do with what you earn.

38. seen the leaning tower of Pisa in person
No.

39. gone rock climbing
Not as we think of it now, but have clambered up rocks while hiking.

Hi Cynthia,

I had never stopped to think about all this and was agreably surprised to see that I could answer yes to most of them.

Can't sing either and you don't want me too either if you know what is good for you :-)

Neat quiz! :) I enjoyed learning a bit more about you by reading your answers. Good luck with the computer!

Glad you liked my little bat and left a comment --- now I get to enjoy YOUR blog.

Very nice blog.

Hope your rain is not as bad as ours. We had thunder and lightning non-stop and it was BAD!

Luckily, no damage as far as I could tell.
