Two-fer

I've decided to include the Name Meme Mary tagged me for with the answers to my Coffeeswap 3 questions.

Name meme: Share a relevant fact starting with each letter of my name. Thankfully I only have 3 letters to worry about! Consider yourself tagged if you haven't done the Name Meme.

A - according to DH "Annoying"-hardy har har! It was a close tie between a n @ l (in a compulsive way) and adventurous. I decided to go with ADVENTUROUS. I love trying new things and actually get bored with the "same old" "same old" routine. Being adventurous is what brought me to teach in Texas from Minnesota not knowing a soul. I've never taught the same grade for more than 4 years-I like the adventure/challenge of trying something new. This has resulted in me having taught/worked with students in grades 1-8. I'm always up for trying new restaurants, new recipes, new coffee, and travel to new places (still working on that one).

M- is for me being a morning person. This photo taken in the early morning at our cabin in northern MN and the quote says it all.

I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning. (Quote by J.B. Priestly)

Y- is for...hmmmm...well....this one was tougher...DH and I tried to come up with something creative, even consulting the "y's" in the dictionary (btw, did you know that a "yegg" is a person who steals from safes? Me either!) I'll go with the obvious "yarn." I've loved becoming a knitter and seeing road signs such as this (when I was in MN) makes my heart go pitter patter.


Coffeswap 3 QUESTIONS/ANSWERS

1. Whole bean or ground? either, I do have a coffee grinder.

2. Fully-loaded or decaf? Fully loaded.

3. Regular or flavored? Either! Just so it's something different, fun or yummy!

4. How do you drink your coffee? Hot, with added sweetness and creamer.

5. Favorite coffee ever? I have to say I really don't have one although I do really like Kona coffee (thanks to my Coffeeswap 2 partner Kim) and the Peace coffees.

6. Are you fussy about your coffee or will any old bean do? I guess I'm a little fussy in that I don't like the cheapy cheap stuff.

7. Favorite treats to have with your coffee? ....mmmm... baked goods of any kind, and of course chocolate/caramel.

8. Anything else about your coffee preferences? I like going for things local or seasonal (gingerbread, holiday spice, or a local blend from a favorite coffee house-that kind of thing).

9. Yarn/fiber you love? Sock yarn and Misti Alpaca.

10. Yarn/fiber you hate? 100% acrylic

11. What's on your needles? fish (knitting 160 to make a fish blanket, Huggable Hedgehog, Everlasting Bagstopper, and some Glovelets). You can see my projects on Ravelry (I'm amysatx) or just look at some previous entries here.

12. Favorite colors? purples, pinks, blues

13. Allergies? nope

14. Anything you really love, really don't like, or just need to get off your chest? I'm also open to tea and apple cider types of hot drinks! I really do like trying new things!

You, annoying? Heck no. Adventureous? Fo' sho'! I'd say you're one of the most open-minded people I've met. People can come up with some off-the-wall ideas--and I'm no exception--and you're always willing to look at things with fresh eyes and give new ideas a try. I'd say you're courageous too, but you don't have "c" in your name. :)

You go smack that hubby for me! I would have said, "amiable", or "affable", or "amusing".

AND, of course, "adventurous"!
