A name game to lighten up and cool off the summer heat and humidity:
I’m re-posting this from August of 2007 because I’ve got nothing else right now and I’m still going back and cleaning up all my posts from the photobucket assault on my blog photos.
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
Back in 2007 Lana tagged me after she used my middle name. Well it’s hers too because in our Russian culture girls and boys get their father’s name as their middle name. So Lana and I do not have a middle name on our birth certificate but when we are introduced to anyone in our Russian community we are called for example Ellen, “Moisi’s daughter”, Bagdanov. So everyone knows then that I’m a Bagdanov but I’m further identified as belonging to Moisi Bagdanov, not John Bagdanov. Thank God from whom all blessings flow. (oops did I just say that?) So now I have to make up a middle name to use for this meme. I’m not going to stray too far. I’ll use Moses which is pretty much Moisi anyway. So here we go. This is a picture of Moses (Moisi) with me and my younger brother Tim in the very late 50’s.
M ~ Married ~ I’m married to a non-Russian. I was the fourth one of my siblings to be married and I was the first one in my family to marry out! I’m so glad I did.
O ~ Observant ~ I see things I wish I wouldn’t see sometimes. I can see danger on the street or on a playground. I’m very visual. When I had my house cleaning business some of my clients would call me to ask if I’d seen this or that. I could usually tell them exactly where the thing was.
S ~ Shopper~ I love to shop for a bargain. I think I could have made shopping a profession. Shopping for other people is what I enjoy the most. I have to admit though, since I started blogging I haven’t been shopping as much.
E ~ Extravagant ~ I love to be extravagant. I love to treat people. I love to buy gifts for people. I enjoy going over-the-top.
S ~ Sister ~ I’m a sister 7 times over. I have 4 brothers and 3 sisters. I’m also a sister-in-law to several. I take my title seriously. I love being a loyal sister/sister-in-law and I’d fight to the death for any of my siblings, just ask my brother Steve…
This was a fun exercise. If you play along let me know.
Back to 2017…This morning I drove to the airport and picked up my niece and her hubby who are spending a couple nights with us before they head north to Vancouver, B.C. to visit with friends. We met the rest of the family that could for a Sushi lunch. Early this morning I put a Pork Butt in the slow cooker for a Carnitas Taco dinner.
I’m happy to report that the leak we had in our water pipe on our side of the meter has been repaired with the help of a dear friend this past Saturday, woohoo. Thank you Jamie D. and thank you Beth for encouraging him to call us. It’s amazing how great it was to have running water again after the water was shut off for several hours. We’re still praying that the B.C. Fires and the Washington State Fires will be extinguished soon and no new fires will start. Hope all is starting off well for you this week.
