Tag, You’re it!! – I Want to Know!

Catherine from Our Village is a Little Different tagged me in this fun meme. She gave me 8 questions to answer, and then I will tag 8 people to answer 8 questions I think up. Here are the 8 questions Catherine asked me....
1. What is the last thing that made you laugh out loud? Funny things my kids say. We were having devotions and I read "shall be", when I was finished reading my 5 year old said, "I didn't know "Shelby" was in the Bible." (Shelby is my daughter-in-law).
2.  Do you have any pet peeves? My biggest pet peeve would be whistling in the house. I know that my kids are in a good mood when they do this, but it is very irritating to me.
3. Which is your favorite domestic duty? That would have to be baking. I have decorated wedding cakes for 20 years and I love Christmas. Every year in Dec. we make a lot of peanut butterballs, and decorate sugar cookies. My kids aren't big fans of icing any more so we give our cookies away, but we do still love peanut butterballs. I have several groups of kids and adults come into my home to make real gingerbread houses.
4. Is there anything you'd like to do when the children are all grown? My oldest child is 19 & my youngest is 5, so it will be awhile before that time actually comes around & it has been awhile since I have thought about it. I would probably open a bakery or a restaurant. I love to be in the kitchen.
5. What can always cheer you? A phone call from a good friend.
6. Are you a very organized person? I try to be but sometimes life gets in the way.
7. Do you have a special thought that helps you in your daily life? Whatever you do, do your work heartily as for the Lord rather than for men. Colossians 3:23
8. Are you a morning person, or a night owl? I like to stay up late & usually regret it in the morning.

I am going to tag these 8 people and list 8 questions of my own for you to answer.

Circling Through This Life
Under the Golden Apple Tree
Accidentally Homeschooling
C.H.I.N.A. Chronicles
A House Upon a Rock Homeschool
Topsy Turvy Things
A Stable Beginning
Cobwebs And Kisses

Here are my 8 questions & answers.

1. What activities make you lose track of time? When we are really enjoying a book in our read aloud time, and scrapbooking with friends.
2. What is your favorite grade or subject to teach? I really like teaching my kids to read. It is so much fun to see them finally get it & to enjoy reading.
3. If you could go to dinner at any restaurant where would it be and what would you order? I would go to Olive Garden and order Chicken Parmesan & White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake.
4. What is the most unusual thing your family does for fun? We love to go tanking down the river.
5. What is the weirdest item you have in your purse? I always have dental floss, you never know when you'll need it.
6. Can you play an instrument or aspire to do so? I played the clarinet in high school and that is where I left it. Once in awhile I think I would want to play again, but I don't have a big desire to do so.
7. What was your profession before you started homeschooling or are you working while homeschooling?  I was in the Air Force as a Security Police Specialist until our first child was born, and then I started decorating cakes from our home and continue to do so.
8. When was the last time you tried something new? I would probably be this blog, this is out of context for me, I am usually a very private person.
