Award


Honey over at Stories to Share gave me the Kreative Blogger award.  Thanks Honey!  She’s a great blogger who got the inspiration for her novel from living in South America for a few years.  Go check her out!

What’s your favorite song?
It’s hard to pick a favorite.  I don’t listen to music near as much as I used to.  With two kids I much prefer silence if I ever get the opportunity, and if I listen to anything it’s an audiobook. 

What’s your favorite dessert?
Again it’s hard to choose.  I’m a mood eater so it depends, but this cake comes pretty darn close to being my favorite in any mood. 


What do you do when you’re upset? 
Well, if I’m seriously upset, I find somewhere I can be alone.  I rant and cry a little, then pray a lot. 

What’s your favorite pet?
I’m not much of a pet person.  We have a cat and fish.

Which do you prefer, black or white?
Gray.  Definitely gray. I once crocheted a gray baby blanket.  It was a beautiful color. A nice heather gray. Everyone thought it was really weird to have a gray baby blanket.  *shrug* I love it. 

What is your biggest fear?
Losing my family.    

What is your attitude mostly?
I worry and stress a lot. 



Ten random things about me:
I’m pretty scared of ticks and cockroaches.  Good thing I live in Georgia. 

I was born in Seattle so I’ve lived on both coasts of the US. (All right, I’m 3 hours away from the coast here but it’s still pretty close)

I used to work in a floral shop.  One of my favorite things about working there was getting to experiment with different color combinations. 

I love to quilt.  I do it by hand but I don’t use patterns. I like to make up my own pictures to put on the quilt.

There was someone with my same exact first and last name at college.  We even grew up in the same state.  OK, my name wasn’t that unique so it’s not shocking.  What is shocking is that I once went on a date with someone who thought he was going out with the other one of us. 

Our dishwasher broke and I have to wash all the dishes by hand until the new part comes in.  You know what?  I don’t mind.  I’ve always thought washing dishes was a very relaxing occupation.  Until the kids start arguing anyway.  In fact, I was washing dishes when I got the idea for my current WIP.

All right so that’s not really ten things but it’s all I’ve got at the moment and I need to get back to work.  Anybody who wants this award can take it, or just tell me something about yourself in the comments.

  2. Congrats on the award, Honey is such a sweetheart!

    LoL at your cockroach answer. I bet you get some nice ones in Georgia! I worked part time during my graduate degree in a cockroach lab. Fun times :/ The smell alone is something I will never forget. I did like the big hissing cockroaches though. (:

    1. Eew, I don't think I could have done it. They probably would have fired me for too much screaming.

  3. That gray blanket sounds really pretty. And I think it's hilarious that the guy didn't know which Sara he was on a date with. :)

    1. It was an interesting experience. Although since my cousin "set us up" I didn't know about it until after. He worked with my cousin, asked if she had a cousin named Sara, then mentioned he wanted to go out with her. She planned this whole date that was supposed to be a big joke on me because I was supposed to know him. Well the joke was on him. I'm sure he felt awkward.

  4. Sara, it's great to get to know you a bit more. I didn't know you had lived in the Pacific Northwest, me too. I also have a dishwasher that has decided to "give up the ghost." Since the one I want is a bit spendy, we're budgeting for it. Consequently, I am also washing my dishes by hand. It is relaxing, but I'll be glad to get a new machine soon! Take care ~

    1. While I don't mind doing the dishes I will gladly use it when it's fixed. I hate my dishwasher and would love a new one but spending $25 on a new part (hubby does the work) VS a few hundred on a new one...well, it was easy to choose.

  5. We have a dishwasher but I hate how it cleans (not) the glasses. So I wash them, and usually half the other dishes we used for dinner. I find washing dishes to be relaxing. :D

    I share your biggest fear.

    1. Mine doesn't clean so well either but I'm not ready to shell out big bucks for another one yet.

      I would guess most parents have the same fear.

  6. I definitely think you should mention your amazing ability to crochet, without any kind of pattern, beautiful and creative designs.

  7. I'm not a big fan of bugs or heat. Good thing I live in Tennessee...

    :D

  8. I like learning the more personal side of the writers I've met; it gives the whole person and not just the writerly person.

    1. That can be kinda scary. If you all figure out what I'm really like you may not want to come back anymore...

  12. I don't mind washing dishes either.
    That grey blanket sounds lovely! You don't have the pattern, do you? My friend wants grey items for her baby!
    That's really funny about the guy who meant to go out with the other girl :-)
