How are you today?

Wow, thanks for asking. I enjoyed the day after getting over a bad sinus headache this morning. (Sudafed and Advil)

Soup
Name 3 television shows you watch on a regular basis.

Design on a Dime, Cold Case, House, Wonder Years (reruns), and Smallville

Salad
What’s the scariest weather situation you’ve experienced?

We lived out in the country in Oklahoma when we were first married. My husband was a youth pastor at a small church and we lived beside it....in a mobile home.

I was always kind of terrified when there were thunderstorms during those 2 years, first of all, because a tornado had come through the field where our home was just a year before and totalled the parsonage (there was a new one built by this time and we lived next to it), but also just because we lived in a mobile home (aka 'tornado magnet'). I could barely sleep some nights, worrying about tornadoes. My husband, being from Oklahoma and being....a man....teased me and told me not to worry so much. So when I was awakened by my husband one night out of a dead sleep, telling me to get my shoes on and run next door, I instantly went into auto pilot and ran with flip flops on through a field of straw stubble, ruts and stickers. When we got to the parsonage, the pastor's wife was standing at the garage door waiting for us and we dashed inside. The weather passed quickly....no tornado in our field, but there was one close to our area. As we walked back to our home, my feet suddenly noticeably sore from running through rough straw and stickers earlier, I asked my husband what had happened before he woke me up. He said that he woke up to thunder crashing and saw our floor-length bedroom curtains flying up to the ceiling.

I didn't sleep well for days after that.

Main Course
If you could wake up tomorrow morning in another country, where would you want to be?

That would be wild! I'm thinking either a cozy old cabin, fire roaring in the fireplace, in Banff, Canada or in a small town inn in Scotland, with sheep and shepherds crossing cobblestone streets, thatched roofs and rolling hills and the sea off in the distance..

Dessert
What do you usually wear to sleep?

Pajamma pants and a tshirt....sometimes socks.

I also would love to visit Scotland... and ya, and inn there maybe in the 1700s or 1800s, haha. As for Banff, Alberta, Canada... it is truly very beautiful and I know you'd love it there. I live just a short days drive from there.

I'd hide under the bed in a bad storm... yikes. I sleep in a black fur coat.

Hope the sinuses improve. I have those issues too!

What an interesting feat.

I can understand you were afraid. I would have been too.

House, Scotland....my items too.

The only thing worse than living in tornado country, is being in earthquake territory. :~)

Banff, eh? My husband and I went hiking in the Rockies near Banff/Lake Louise when we were first married. We saw fresh bear tracks, and I jetted as far down the trail as I could. My dear husband on the other hand, calmly pulled out his camera and snapped a photo. Yikes!
