Seven Random Things About Me

Hazel at The Clever Pup tagged me to make a list of seven random things about me. I like making lists, so here goes.

1. Sallymandy is my late grandfather's nickname for me.

2. I love butternut squash enchiladas.

3. My arches are so high that lizards can run under them (it happened once in Arizona).

4. I have seasonal affective disorder.

5. I have three pairs of Doc Martens shoes and boots.

6. I've been married for fifteen years.

7. That photo over there is my favorite scarf, which was a Christmas present two years ago.
Now I'll be finding seven other people to tag...but that's for another day. Good night!

Feet with high arches are so elegant. Am I jealous of you? Oh yes, horribly!!!

Maria Killam said...

Imogen: Thanks..I always get compliments on it.

ProSup: Funny..but don't be jealous of how hard it is to find boots that fit!

The scarf is beautiful; I love the multi-coloured pattern.
I identify with your no. 4.;) But it is spring soon, so it should ease back a bit.;))

Oh,I don't have any difficulties in reading your posts/comments :D but I usually write in Romanian on my blog since,well,most of my visitors are from Romania...anyway,cheers!

I would love to try a butternut squash enchilada. Squash is one of the most underappreciated foods I know.

Hello dear,
I'm the other high-arched stepper. All those years in pointe-shoes. And yes, yes, yes, ANYTHING with butternut squash! Stay cozy up there in Montana. Thanks for your enthusiasm. It always makes me happy!

Butternut squash enchiladas sound delicious!!

Colour Me Happy: Thank you! I'll be over for a visit soon...

Protege: Yes, not only is it pretty but it's functional because it goes with everything. Re: the seasonal affective disorder, I think it's a fancy name for semi-hibernation. I use a light box about November-January and it fixes me right up.

Monica: thanks for visiting. Maybe I'll see a photo on your blog I can comment on since I can't read Romanian.

Red: I just might post that recipe. And then make some.

Hi Catherine: Thanks to you too! And Tina too: see note to Red.

I LOVE the scarf! There's one good thing about winter and cold weather--getting to wrap things like that around your neck.
From my New England/Eastern US perspective, when you write about lizards running under your arches and squash enchiladas, you sound so Western and exotic.
