Well here you have it folks-- my own answers to the world famous "Seven 7's" quiz. I was first introduced to this on Amy's blog, and now Susan's put me on her list to do the quiz too. Sounds fun, so here goes.

Seven things I hope to do before I die:
have my own sewing business
plant a successful garden
marry a Godly man
have several chickens and a Jersey cow named Daisy
live on a small self-sufficient farm
buy very few things
raise as many children as the Lord would give us (in cloth diapers) ; )

Seven things I cannot do well:
respond promptly to e-mails (right Susan??) : D
play sports
get to bed on time (*ahem*)
live for more than 2 weeks without some minor injury
keep my room as orderly as I'd like
talk about how I feel deeply about things without crying
keep anything straight about LOTR. I just don't get it.

Seven things that would attract me to my future husband:
has blue eyes and sings bass
has strong muscles because he works- not because he works out
helps in the kitchen!
loves the Lord
loves children
is tender and peacable
doesn't think I'm silly for wanting chickens.

Seven things I say often:
"It's so loud in here!"
"West Davidson Public Library, the very best place to start. May I help you?"
"Yes, I will."
"I'm in the sewing room!"
"How much water have you had today?"
"You know, people haven't had ______ but for only __ years."
"You know, (name) said (some item or technique) was good for when you're (sick, cleaning the tub, cooking, etc.)

Seven authors, books, or series I love:
The Bible (Isaiah especially!)
Elizabeth Prentiss
Jeremiah Burroughs
Silas Marner by George Eliot
The Anne of Green Gables series (especially Rilla of Ingleside)
Sue Gregg cookbooks
The 641 and 745/ 746 sections of my library ; ) If you don't know your Dewey decimal system... well then you just need to spend some more time at your library!

Seven movies I watch over and over again (in order of frequency):
Sense and Sensibility
Princess Bride
Pride and Prejudice
Ever After
Jane Eyre
While You Were Sleeping (fastforwarding through a few places)

Seven people I want to do this:
Kelly and Andrea (they count as two)

I'm sorry

I've been too busy living my life to be able to blog about it lately!!

I haven't forgotten you, my friends, and I plan to get a little more up soon... But in case I can't blog more beforehand--

"A Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Night!"

PS: No, I do not celebrate Santa Claus. Personally, I can't stand the guy. I just think his quote was appropriate there.

"This is only a test"

I'm just trying to see if I get a new post out here for December and November gets archived, will my sidebar come back up?
