TAG....You're IT!

I have been tagged with another fun game. This one comes from my friend and fellow Spirit Jumper, Tonya, at Small Town Louisiana Girl

The rules:

1. Respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own.

2. Tag other people.

What is your current obsession?

Trying to get my candle business going and making it productive.

What are you wearing today?
A sleeveless shirt with "Spring" colored stripes, pink shorts and sandals.

What’s for dinner?
Hmmmm.......dinner? Not hungry. Maybe I'll want something later.

What would you eat for your last meal?
I would probably skip my last meal to use the time with my son.

What relaxes you the most?
Hot, steamy bath with "something special" in the water.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
I would head for a little cabin in the mountains, overlooking the lake.

Which language do you want to learn?
I have always wanted to learn French, of course, Spanish is what I "need" to learn.

What do you love most about where you currently live?
I like the central location, but would prefer to live in the country.

What style is your current home decorated in?
Haven't spent much time decorating. I use lots of neutrals with bunches of charm.

If you were a time traveler what era would you live in?
I would want to live in Medieval times. I love castles.

What is your favorite color?
Turquoise

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
Not sure, but I am betting it would be SHOES.

What were you doing ten years ago?
I was working as a police officer and going through the police academy.

Describe your personal style?
Casual Comfort

If you had $300 now, what would you spend it on?
Probably something to do with my son, Cody.

What are you going to do after this?
Work on some blog posts.

What are your favorite films?
I like the Action movies and Thrillers.

Your favorite books?
I read a lot of books by Patricia Cornwell, James Patterson, Jeffery Deaver, Dean Koontz....crime and FBI thrillers.

Do you collect anything?
I have a collection of Wolves: plates, statues, etc.....

What makes you follow a blog?
I look at content, personality, language...

What was the most enjoyable thing you did today?
I attended a twitter baby shower party and won a door prize!

Ann's Question:
What makes you comment on a blog?
I love to correspond with the writers. Most put a lot of thought and work into their blogs, so I try to let them know that they are doing a good job and that their content is enjoyable.

Amy's Question:
What is your favorite thing to do when you have some free time?
In my free time, I like to relax, do a little reading or, maybe, take a nap.

Anissa's Question:
As you know I homeschool -- If you could would you? Already do?
Do you agree with homeschooling?
I think it depends on the situation. Some children are "kept away" from the world and do not learn to socialize in "normal" everyday situations. I know a child now who is in this situation.
Other children, have no social problems. They are treated the same as other children, they participate in community activities, church, etc....they are well adjusted.

Tonya's question:
What is a talent you wished you had?
I wish I could draw. I love the work of artists and envy them that talent. Also, I write children's books and, if I could illustrate them myself, it would save a lot of many when publishing.

My question:
As you may know, I am all about "Serene Moments", so what is your "Serene Moment"?

Now, I am tagging:

Vickie at Vickie's Scrapbooking and Tidbits
Janet at A Room of My Own
Noelle at Lil' Bits and Pieces of Me

Enjoy the game and, please, Pass It On!

As they would say on Family Feud "Good answer, good answer."
My serene moments is often spent in a hammock enjoying a cool breeze with MP3 earbuds stuffed in my ears swinging back and forth, back and forth, empty mind, ZZZZZ.

Wolves!!!! awesome! my house is full of wolf statues, mugs, and sun catchers, because my hubbie collects them. I had been collecting Snow/water globes but space gets to me and the dusting. I do like the wolves. My FB status said "married to ... ....wolf" for a while
