Sleeping late on Saturday...

What do you love to do? I've decided that what I really look forward to is: sleeping in on Saturday morning! Yes, I know I am missing all the yard sale bargains and the coolest part of the summer days to garden... but those things can't compare with sleeping until I am good and READY to get up on Saturday morning (or afternoon!) So, now you've been warned - I INTEND to post things here often, but... I might just be sleeping instead!

The Five-

Ten years ago…
I was serving as a counselor in a ward Young Women's presidency. That was a BUSY time, but fun- many fond memories.
My youngest two children were about to start their junior year in high school.
My oldest daughter was headed off to college in Hawaii- and that was her launch into independence- she was never 'home for the summer' again after that.
My oldest son had just moved to Utah, where he has lived ever since.
My oldest grandchild was still less than a year old, and I had recently lost my last survivng parent.

Five things on today’s “to do” list…
Go to work.
Visit a friend who is moving out of state today. (I will miss you, Kit!)
Shopping ~ (I am OUT of GARLIC in any form, so life as we know it stops today until I get some more!!!) (Oh, and I'm almost out of milk, too...)
Mow my back lawn. (ick)

Five Things I would do if I was a millionaire…
Hire some one to mow the back lawn!! (and the front ones, too!) Fix my '63 Imperial. (my mother lived in terror that the car would never last- but it has outlived her for 36 years now, and-yes, it still runs. It gives me great pleasure to drive it.... So much for childhood trauma.) Retire- myself and my spouse, and then we would go on a mission. Travel. Set up provisions for children, grandchildren, etc... help with homes, education, or??

Five Places I have lived… CALIFORNIA (Fresno, Hemet, Redway, Shelter Cove, Willits, Morro Bay, Hollister, Reedley), OREGON (Salem), WASHINGTON (Woodland), UTAH (Provo), and.... oh, wait: I haven't lived in 5 states, just four! I guess the towns will have to count, then!

I’m tagging… um...?
Julie? at
and I don't know who else!!! ???
because I don't blog very often at all, and I think everyone whose blog I read has long since already seen this activity and done it!
