Tag I’m It: 7 Things About Me
This is a meme in which I was tagged by Jess. In a challenge to share 7 new facts about oneself. I wanted to figure out how this worked and have seen others respond to just such a challenge on their blogs and I think I will learn how to make some links along with some friends. So I hope this will prove to be interesting. Here goes!
#1 I live in a house that was 650 square feet of useable space which is now about 3000 square feet of useable beautiful space.
#2 I love watching all the birds flit through the 100 year old apple tree right outside my bedroom window – sap suckers, Pileated woodpecker, finches of all kinds, robins and blue jays.
#3 I live next door to a piano teacher and a former bookstore owner/even more former kindergarten teacher. They seem to like me!
#4 I used to own and play on a baby grand piano, which I sold to pay for one of my kiddo’s medical bills. I have a Yamaha keyboard piano and that is fun to explore now.
#5 I have a learning problem called Dyscalcula, which is similar to Dyslexia except it has to do with numbers. I was finally diagnosed by the Driver’s License examiner, who removed himself from the test and made an appointment with me and taught me how to drive with Dyscalcula so that I have passed my test and been able to drive for about 30 years. I still cannot make left turns without a light because I cannot judge time, space, movement. I am teaching myself how to do Sudoku with my DS Brainage program.
#6 I can swim a mile in one hour now! And I do this feat 3 times a week.
#7 I couldn’t decide on just one more so I will share both: I love grilled pie pumpkin more than pumpkin pie as a treat and I love being with people and being alone in equal measure.
