We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass--grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls. --Mother Teresa

Mrs. E tagged me, so here goes! 

1- What’s your staple meal (ie. what meal do you cook most often when you can’t be bothered to be adventurous)?
Mexican is my fall back meal.  I usually have everything on hand and can whip it up in 30 minutes or less.  Be jealous, Rachel Ray.  Tonight I am using leftover taco meat to make taco soup.  In fact, I probably should get that started....

2- What do you want to be when you grow up? 
I want to be a librarian.  I love books.  I love sharing books.  I love reading.  I love newspapers, magazines and books.  I love talking about what I have read with others. 

3- What book are you reading at the moment (if any)?
IF ANY?  I am on book number 11, I think.  And it's a good one.  Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.  I am rather agitated with the main character--good Lord, Woman if someone is trying to help you have a better life--LET THEM!!  She is too stubborn and needs to get over her contrary self already. 

4- How do you relax?
Reading and writing.  Cooking.  Bossing my husband around. Yelling at my children. 

5- What color are the interior walls of your home?
The kitchen is purple, at least for right now.  The hallway is yellow.  The bathroom is two colors of blue.  The dining room is red.  The living room is goldish tan.  The office is the color of urine.  I know--who picks the color of urine?  I swear it didn't look like that on the 1 x 1 sample I held up.  I am sure that the boy who mixed my paint screwed it up. 

6- What is your guiltiest pleasure?
Watching Chelsea Lately!    Shhh...don't tell anyone.  She's totally inappropriate, but cracks me up.  I know.  It's like car wreck--I know I shouldn't watch but I just can't help myself. 

7- What time is bedtime and getting up time?
Summer bedtime is 11ish or even 12ish.  This summer I have not been able to walk due to a foot injury, so I have slept in a little more instead of joining my summer walking group.  I have been able to get up when I awaken.  It's a nice feeling.  During the school year, I go to bed around 9ish and wake up around 5.  And I am still late for school every day. 

8- How long do you spend reading blogs (per day or per week)?
Depends on the day.  30 minutes to an hour.  I have serious ADD this summer so I have about 47 tasks occurring at once. 

Now, I get to tag a couple of people. So, I'm tagging Lisa at Bauer Banter, Ann at The Ohlde's, Erica at The Craigs, and Kate at KDKG.  Ladies, all you have to do is answer the same questions and then tag a few people.

LOL to #4! I've watched Chelsea a couple of times, but can't remember when it comes on to catch it on a regular basis.
