Know and Tell Friday ~ March 7th


Here are the questions for this week’s Know and Tell from To Know Him.

Question 1
I have been blogging for a year this month, so my question is what made you start your blog?

As of March 3rd of this year my blog is one year old. I started my blog because my brother made me. I was emailing people all the same sort of stuff he thought would be great on a blog. He had a blog already that I was commenting on. I was apprehensive because I didn’t know if I could handle the technology. Baby steps and a year under my belt and a lot of what I was afraid of isn’t scary anymore. There is still a lot for me to learn.

Question 2
Do you speak another language? If so, why or how did you learn it? ~
My first language was Russian. My parents are Russian immigrants and they came to the U.S. in 1947. I was born in 1951. I had 3 older siblings that paved the way for me to learn English. Sorry to say that my Russian is quite dismal. I can read it and I understand more than I can speak. I took Spanish in high school and really didn’t retain much of that language either.
~Question 3
Morning person, or night owl (or somewhere in between)?
Nowadays I’m more of a morning person. Many nights I’m in bed by 9:00 P.M. and then wide awake at 5:00 A.M.
Question 4
Do you exercise on a regular basis?  
I’m glad you asked this question now because I walk for at least an hour a day except for Sunday. This is my primary exercize. I’ve come to realize that at my age this is the only way to keep the numbers on the scale from creeping up…

Bonus Questions
Question 5
If money were not an object what is one thing you would like to do for another person?  ~
Take my children to Ireland and Great Britain and pay all their home and vacation expenses while we were away.
Question 6
What is one of your favorite attributes of our Lord God? ~
God’s sovereignty is very important to me. He is the one that is in control and it’s not up to me. That really gives me peace and freedom when I screw up like I’m bound to do!
Question 7
Have you ever thought about adoption or foster care?
Every time I’ve thought about either of these I have not  had a positive response to make the leap.

  1. So far 3 of the participants (one is me) started blogging in March a year ago 🙂 I loved all of your answers this week!! Blessings and hope to get that Mr Linky thing working soon 🙂

  2. Thanks for stopping by our blog! I loved reading your answers. I also love your blog header. I recently went and visited Reese in Germany and fell in love with castles. Your blog makes me think of Germany and Reese!


  3. Too bad we couldn’t find a way to trade your Russian speaking/reading skill and my home in Great Britain, eh? At least for a week.

    We’ve only been here a month (we moved from Germany, we’re a military family), but we plan on spending time in Ireland. It’s been a lifelong dream to live here.
