Here Are 7 Random Facts About Me

1. I am not a “sitting in hot water” kind of person. My new house has a 6-foot square Jacuzzi in one of the bathrooms and I will never use it. I am storing several sleeping bags in plastic containers in it. Give me a shower every time.

2. My Death Row meal is Lobster with Drawn Butter, a Double Hamburger and Fries from Burger King, and a big bowl of Salty Buttered Popcorn.

3. When I was in my 20’s I had a motorcycle, a Bultaco Lobito. I bought that particular bike because it was the only one I could find that allowed me to put my feet flat on the ground when sitting on the seat. I’m short, just 5 feet tall.

4. After graduating from high school, I went to Beauty School for a year and a half. I got my state (Minnesota) license, worked for a year, hated it and quit. I still give a pretty mean haircut, though.

5. My maiden name is Lynne Kathleen LeMere.

6. One of the things on my Bucket List is to go Equitrekking, which is a travel adventure on horseback. I spent my childhood in Minnesota horseback riding, and I would like to spend a week in the saddle, maybe on a cattle drive. There would be cooking by the chuckwagon crew and singing around the campfire at night. Maybe on a ranch in Colorado with the Rocky Mountains in the background. Yahoo!

7. I am a Lawn Geek. I like to garden with flowers and vegetables, but I also love my grass plants. My new house has a lawn in the back and front, and when I moved in they were dry, burned, patchy and about an inch tall. So I told the gardener to stop cutting the grass, fertilized, and watered the hell out it, until it was about four inches tall, lush and green. Then I let the gardener cut it on the tallest setting on his mower. I love it when I come home and see my grass plants all healthy, especially when they are all exactly the same height. *sigh*

Wow! Thanks for the award! It is a first for me!

Love your list. I love gardening too. I miss it a lot. Not a fun task in NW Florida.

Keep on bringing the wonderful recipes!

Gotta write myself a post-it to remember to do the same once I get home from work today…

Congrats! And I love your blog too! And you’re adorable! I had to look at your “About” page since you relate to MN and I live here, still. I actually lived in Richfield for a time in my 20’s and now reside in Belle Plaine, which is way the heck out there South somewhere.
