Random Dozen

1. On an average, how often do you splurge and buy something for yourself?
Usually I am very money conscious, but when I get money for something like birthday or a Christmas gift I always want more than the money I receive so I always pay the extra to get what I want.
2. Are you more like Hall or Oates? Just kidding. Real question: What is the last creative project you began/finished? Feel free to post a pic of it.

I don't do very many crafts or paint until the snow flies or the frost kills all the fun outdoors for the season. But did have a basket class last month I can try to get a picture in but I have no luck getting pictures to cooperate.
3. OK, Goldie Locks, do you consider your house too big, too little or juuuust right?

to big and drafty, and too expensive to fix, Goldie Locks, says to go for a new smaller house.
4. What is your favorite outdoor chore?

I LOVE to plant flowers and veggies in the spring, till the garden,hoe weeds.
5. If you knew that cigarette smoking was not bad for your health but would be a weight loss tool, would you use it? Why or why not?

I would smoke a pipe with the best smelling tobacco like my grandfather used to, it smelled so good and I liked the way you had to fill it, cigarettes stink.
6. On a road trip, would you rather drive or ride?

I hate, hate, hate, driving.
7. What do you consider a trivial pursuit?

Arguing with my daughter.! Duuuuuu!!!

8. This weekend, we downloaded the movie "Duplicity" with Julia Roberts and Clive Owen. Within 5 minutes, I was bored and annoyed, but I kept watching 5-10 minutes at a time hoping it would get better between small chores. I finally gave up and Jorge watched it alone, and then regretted wasting that time because he disliked it intensely, too. So ... how long do you watch a movie or read a book before giving up on it?

My family can't remember the last time I watched a movie to the end, they get so annoyed at me and I don't understand what difference it makes to them. I did watch the movie Julie&Julia at the theater to the end. It was the best movie I have seen in a long time.
9. Is there a song that you really love but are embarrassed to admit because it's not cool or it's racy or because it's by Hall and Oates?
10. On a scale of 1-10 (10 = extremely) how spontaneous are you?

I would give myself 9 3/4 because that is my life, when you live on a farm you are a victim of weather and broken down equipment. It is so much a part of our lives we don't even plan to do anything until we are sure we have everything covered.
11. Are you a food and/or beverage snob?

Sweet tea, got to have it, and know where not to go for it.
12. Who/What are you trying to control in your life?

I would like to say my teenage kids but we all know the truth.


  1. Great answers, Jenny! You are getting good at this. I can see your cute little basket! #8 is me, too. I've always fantasized about living on a farm, but I don't think I would last. See you soon!

  2. Hi...it was fun to read your answers...#12 -I completely understand.

    I just love the sunflower in your blog header!

  3. Hey Jenny, I finally made it over for a visit. I enjoyed reading your answers and other posts. Great looking chickens. How many do you have? I miss having chickens....they keep down the bug population and give the most beautiful orange colored yolks. Have a great day. Blessings, SusanD

  4. Is that your basket at the top? Sweet project!

    Enjoyed your answers.

  5. I enjoyed reading your answer's to the random dozen. Sure is one way to get to know a blogging friend. I also don't really start crafting till the snow flies. I try and spend as much time outdoors as I can.

  6. Okay, I have to ask - -why is there a potato masher woven to your pretty basket?

  7. I was so excited that I got the picture of my basket on the post without crashing the line of questioning that I forgot to explain that my newest basket is woven around a potato masher, now I'm not sure how useful its going to be but at least its different. I think my basket teacher is running out of new ideals.

  8. Great answers Jenny. I loved your answer to #4 (my uncle used to smoke a pipe) and #7 cracked me up!

    Yeah - you got the photo in.
