  1. Hmmm Okay, thanks....I think...:) My first thought when I read it was the hardest part may be the eleven fun things about me!!!:)
    I will try to climb out of my comfort zone for this but it may take time!!

  2. No worries! There is no time limit or pressure to do it...I wanted you to know that I would tag you and I totally understand if you choose not to; it does take a little time:)

    Enjoy your day!

  3. I do think you are 'wise and a good poet' already!

    Also wondering: Do you display your rolling pins or just collect them? (Lordie, I don't own a one. I probably made 2 pie crusts in my life.)

  4. Mary...I'm laughing! Yes, I display them, but it has become a bit of a love/hate thing when dusting!


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
