A deeper look
Have you taken any dance classes in the past year that you loved?
I am having such a challenge getting myself to exercise at home. I decided I need to dance more so I looked for an african dance class in my area. I have always wanted to take an african dance class-moving my body to the drumming. Feeling free. The place that offers one here in my area also offers Nia classes. I have always had a strange weird feeling about NIA-never taken a class but always felt a bit like I would be embarrassed.
What is your favorite flavor tea and where to you get it?
I am really trying (again) to get off coffee. My sister in law sent me some amazing black teas, but I ran out. I am an earl grey lover, and the roobis?sp tea Susannah had from the UK was just delish (I just don't know where to get it here).
What is your favorite podcast, do you have a link and what do you love about it?
I have yet to listen to a podcast but I would love to:) hee hee
What food did you love when you were a kid, that when you eat it as an adult it brings you back-carries so much more than just the flavor-but memories. And would you share a recipe?
Ravioli. Celentano ravioli to be exact. It was a real treat when we had ravioli when I was a kid. It was nothing fancy-nothing from scratch-but we had ravioli last night and when I was putting away the leftovers I slipped a few in my mouth-and thought of my mom. Also my bff as a kid-Hope-and I loved ravioli-and would often have it when we were over each others houses.
What was the last thing you bought yourself?
I just bought myself these fingerless gloves for the early morning times when the house is cold. I just love them and they are orange and brown. Yum-I think I could collect these:)
What color is your bedroom? Is it the nicest room in the house?
my bedroom is pale yellow and a modge podge of hand me downs. It is the least nice room in my house and I am dying to make it over. I would love to have a bohemian romantic bedroom but don't know where to start and feel like we don't have the money to redo it.
Are a better cook or baker?
I am a better baker but haven't made things from scratch in a while. The best recipe I have ever made I think-is a caramel apple pie I got the recipe for from the food tv site. If you would like the recipe email me. I grew up with a bland vegetarian often vegan diet so I always feel strange cooking, like my food isn't flavorful. My friend Genine is the best cook in my eyes. She whips things together and they are always so freakin yummy. She is italian and a great cook.
What time do you go to bed usually and when do you wake up?
For the past few months I have been going to bed between 9 and 10 and get up between 4 and 5-for a bit of quiet time before my son gets up. I am too tired at night to enjoy evenings so that is why I get up so early. I guess I am a morning person.
What sign are you? Do you know your rising and moon? When is your birthday?
January 4th, 1972. I often forget how old I am. feels silly that I can't seem to remember. I also keep forgetting how old my scorpio husband is. One year I wrote 33 on balloons when he was turning 34:) I am a Capricorn and my moon and rising is in Virgo. I feel more virgo than capricorn. But I do have traits of Capricorn that seem to be emerging as I get older. Mermaid mentioned that she is a Capricorn and has the trait of getting younger at heart as she gets older. I definitely feel this too. I was a very old young person and feel more fun and silly-enjoy playing more as an adult. I want to dress like a teenager:) hee hee
What was the last thing you said no to that felt like you were taking good care of yourself?
I said I couldn't tutor a girl that keeps changing the times on me. I decided I would rather spend an evening out taking a dance class than trying to work through chemistry:) It was hard to say no because she really could use the help.
Please add one question to the end of this.
