I've been tagged to list Eight Things You Don't Know About Me by bkwilliams

1. I didn't wear shoes to school until the 7th grade and then I only wore them to school.

2. I was born and raised in Hawaii (hence the barefoot-ness).

3. I am left handed but can't use left handed scissors. I knit right handed, but crochet left handed. I open jars and doors with my right hand, but have to pour liquids with my left.

4. I don't consider myself to be a risk taker, but I did leave Hawaii at 18 to go to college 2,300 miles away from family and friends to a place I'd never been. I lived by myself my first year of teaching, still far away from home.

5. I've lived in 5 different states.

6. I have traveled to several foreign countries and many states, but I consider myself a true homebody. I could easily not leave home for weeks if I could have good, fresh veggies and fruit delivered to my door, if I had books, music and my wine.

7. I think I have a great sense of humor but people who mask their biases, prejudices and meanness in humor make me very uncomfortable. Putting down minorities, women, nationalities and religions upsets me.

8. I used to be such a neat-freak. I couldn't go to bed if one thing was out of place in my bedroom. Now I inhabit the other end of the spectrum.

That was fun, thanks. I tag Teresa at

Thanks for the comment. We probably will try spinning linen next school year. We sort of ran out of time this year; Friday is the last day of classes and we are doing finals all week. I will need to come back to school during the summer to harvest the flax as it is not ripe yet. As for the dying book, I do not have that title and would greatly appreciate it. It is difficult to find funds for everything we need in a class where just about everything in the budget is a purchase that lasts only one year. Thanks much for continuing to read my blog. It may be rather quiet over the summer since I only have dial-up internet access at home and it is so slow, I'm afraid I just don't have the patience for it. If you email me at I will send you a physical address for the book. Thanks much.
