7 Random Things

In keeping with the honor of receiving the “Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award”, here are 7 Random things about me.
1. I spent a winter living on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Gallup, NM – 2 room shack, outhouse, woodstove for heat and cooking (thus chopping beaucoup firewood), the whole shebang!
2. I was raised in western Oregon and spent a year living in our summer getaway overlooking the beach. I miss watching the sunset over the ocean and falling asleep to the crash of waves breaking upon the shore.
3. States I’ve lived in: Utah, Oregon, Wyoming, New Mexico, Kansas, Colorado and Idaho.
4. Things I’ve tried and enjoyed(some more than others): Ballroom dancing, Whitewater rafting, Rock climbing, Repelling, Weightlifting, Hiking, Cliff diving(more like cliff jumping while screaming), Snorkeling, Aerobics, Kickboxing, Volleyball, Softball, Tennis, Cross country skiing, Traveling and Writing.
5. Creative things with my hands that I’ve managed to pull-off: Scrapbooking, sewing, wooden wall plaques and basic cake decorating. That’s about it! My creativity tends to be limited to my mind.
6. I still have a vivid memory of saving a girl from drowning during swimming class. I was in grade school. I’m not sure where the instructor was at the time, and I don’t remember the girls name.
7. I use to want, more than anything, to skydive, though with age, I’m not certain if I’ve grown more fearful or more wise.

And now, for the 5 blogs I have selected upon which to bestow
