Monday! Fresh and New!

It's Monday again. I like Mondays. I've been clickity clicking things off my list the morning in true FW fashion. I even brewed up a couple cups of "Green Tea" cuz' Another Online Mom shared it as part of her "A Beautiful New You" tips recently. My groove is on and I'm moving and shaking. I'm really happy today. But, I do have that longing thought in the back of my head that is praying for peace for TG and Bex this week. It's going to be a tough one. They are dredging through, hour by hour. We'll be up there this weekend and will stay for the funerals. *sigh* *tear* *sigh* SO.  I'm bein' interviewed by Ms. Jenny Bean.  What would you like to know, Jenny Bean? 1. What is your greatest childhood memory? This one was really hard. I had to think on it for awhile because I have TONS of childhood memories, though tons I won't ever share. But, because my memory brings them back to me I write posts entitled, "Childhood Flashbacks." So, you will find many there. But, my greatest childhood memory was as a teenager. The day I received my driver's license. [Well, and some sort of automobile to go with it, thought they didn't come on the same day or at the same time.] It was the day that defined my freedom and the fact that I was on my way to adulthood and independence. I had a guy from school (he was a senior and I was a junior) tell me that it would wear off and then I'd be bothered by the little errands I'd be requested to do and such. Well, "Bryan," you were wrong then and you are still wrong today. 20 years later and this has never, EVER, held true for me. Categorize it under my "Control Issues," but I will always prefer to drive myself, or anyone. It's the power to come and go. Never to be trapped in a situation I am uncomfortable with and never to be dependent. I ride with DH. In fact, when traveling I do prefer him to drive and I enjoy when we take his truck. But, other than DH -- I prefer to drive myself. I ride, on rare occasion, with friends or family. Though, I am extremely uncomfortable and anxious. Even when there is no threat. Just a trip to dinner together or to church or an event. I'd prefer my own ride, thank you. 2. How did you get started writing?
Cheeze-Wiz.  Another long one.  I've loved to write since I was a kid.  I've always loved reading too.  I posted or commented somewhere that in high-school (freshman year) I started writing a teen romance novel.  I have a couple of chapters stored up in the attic.  It was pretty good, actually.  But, some of it was inspired by real life and when real life turned out to be more like fiction -- well, I scrapped the whole thing.
I've always written a little poetry, children's invitations, I've had a few things published over the years (besides all the more recent fun I've been having at Root & Sprout and my place at Grow Together). I've had friends and family tell me over the years that I'm good with words. I've written odes and poems to my In-Laws (one is framed!) and I love to craft and write up personalized cards. I've done my FIL's card for Father's Day the past few years. He's asked me, "Wherever did you find this card?" Because it fit him so perfectly. To which I respond, "I made it." Blogging really spiced things up for me. After regressing to a journaler and a list maker, and a home-maker, I found my vacab failing me and a lack of motivation for writing. But, then my BB (Blog Buddy) invited me to follow her 365 photo blog and I was so enticed that I began my own. It grew out of the 365 almost immediately. And, then as will all things with me, I became obsessed with it. And, it's one of those things that has stuck. Like an appendage. I can't go without it. I love it here. Blogging has opened doors, windows, and worlds of understanding for me. 3. You go by Farmer*swife. What sort of farm do you have? My husband grew up farming with his Dad. We farm primarily sorghum and cotton. Though, they've formerly done corn. Currently, we added a early spring crop of wheat and seseme is being considered as well. My FIL has cattle at his ranch. I *heart* cows. Though, we don't do the big "work-the-cows" shindigs like we did years before children. I miss that. He gave each grandchild a cow. And, every calf she births and he sells will be money going into an account for college. My In-Laws rock. They are the best of everything....I'm just sayin'. 4. What do you think your kids will be when they grow up? LOL! Farmer, Jr.? No questions. Hand's down, he will go into the family business and work the farm. My nephew too. They just carry the gene. Lil'Gal? *Swoon* who knows! She might go into fashion, she might go into health-care, she might try to become the next "Taylor Swift," she might get married and become a domestic executive -- bossing the family around! LOL! But, there's a good chance she'll go into politics. Because, she is gooooood at it. Since she could utter sounds and speak words, she's been making deals. You really have to watch that one. [And, then there have been the stints with thievery and kleptomania....I hope she doesn't become a international art thief or something! Just kiddin...Okay, maybe not.] 5. What song fits your mood today? Why? Funny you should ask Jenny Bean, because this is what I was humming and then began full out singing while cleaning out the fridge this morning: Want to be part of it? Follow these instructions: 1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me." 2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions. 3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions. 4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post. 5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions. And, with that, There you Have It! Happy Monday!

I like this interview meme a lot. It's probably the coolest of all the memes. But, I'm not going to play cause I already did once and I'm supposed to get some questions from somebody else. And since I'm too laz .. uh ... busy to come up with the questions for everyone else. LOL ;-)

Great interview! I love your questions (kudos to Jenny Bean) and your answers.
Sure, you can interview me. :)

It took me a minute to figure out that the guy at the piano wasn't wearing Depends!

Let's just hope your attire for fridge cleaning is a little bit more concealing that a red bandana and white shorts!!

I blast Queen when running on the treadmill. The song I consider to be "my anthem" - Don't Stop Me Now - is just as appropriate when running, especially the phrase, "I'm havin' a good time, havin' a good time." I listen to that one song over and over when exercising to make myself believe I'm "havin' a good time."
