I was tagged by Maricello to post seven things about myself. So here goes:
1. When I first started kindergarten I thought I was going to get paid. My father was a teacher, and once when I was about 3 or 4 years old I asked my mother why my father went to school every morning; she said it was so he could earn pennies.
2. I once made a windmill out of toothpicks … just because I felt like it. It survived for about 3 years until my cat, Eliza discovered it. We ended up having to give Eliza away. Not because she destroyed windmills, but because I found out I was allergic to cats.
3. I majored in elementary education in college, but only taught for 3 years. I now wish that I’d majored in music or math.
4. I teach piano to young children, but didn’t start piano lessons myself until I was 16 years old.
5. I went to an all girls’ Catholic high school. The priest (Father N.) that used to say daily Mass in the school chapel looked like JFK. When I first got to college I noticed a cute guy that looked a little like Father N. Four years later I married that cute guy. (And as readers of this blog already know, we’ve been happily married for 39 years.)
6. My daughter and I bake cookies together every year at Christmastime. My husband and son can eat them almost as fast as we make them. I’ve gotten pretty good at hiding cookies.
7. I don’t like history, politics, or gardening.
OK … that was fun. Here’s a list of four people that I’d like to tag because I’d like to know 7 things about them:
Musicgal – I feel like I’m 16 again when I read her blog. I especially love reading about her adventures in high school orchestra and wishing I’d had that opportunity.
Jill – She’s busy raising her infant son right now, but I’m tagging her so that readers might visit her wonderful blog filled with beautiful thoughts and photos.
CelloGirl – a slightly younger adult beginner with a very interesting cello blog
Rallentando – another late beginner like me, currently struggling through the orchestra experience
Please feel free to tag as many or few people as desired.
