Back Talk

Did you know that "back talk" is a synonym for answer? I didn't either until I just googled it.

Our internet connection has been erratic for the last couple of days, and it keeps booting me offline. That is most inconvenient when you're googling things like "valentines day crafts" or trying to check your email or working on a blog post. Arghh.

It seems to be working right now though so I'm going to quickly answer a few more questions from this post.

AverageMoreorLess asked me four questions:

If you could change your name, what would you change it to and why?
Well, I actually really like my name, but if had to change it, I'd go for Callie. Or Lyndy. Or Christin because I think they're beautiful names. I love Christin is spelled this way because it breaks down to "Christ in".

What is the best Christmas/birthday present you've ever received and why?
Hmmmmm, that's hard! One year John gave me a ticket to a Captivating retreat (way back before the book was out and before it was even called Captivating). I had little kids at the time so the time away was a gift, but the spiritual message of that retreat was the biggest gift of all. It was life-changing!

What is your dream job?
Park ranger in Rocky Mountain National Park.

What is your favorite Disney movie?

Teresa, my real life friend, asked:
When are you going to write a book?
You know, that just really isn't my dream. Some people love to write and have that desire in them, but I'm not one of them. I'm content to have only one author in our family.

Katrina asked: What kind of crafts do you like to dabble in?
I enjoy scrapbooking, but it's hard to get motivated to pull out all my stuff and get in a groove. I recently bought Photoshop Elements with the intent of going digital with my scrapbooking, but wow, the learning curve is steep. I think I might like sewing. I've made a few things recently that turned out surprisingly well. I'm hoping to post about my latest sewing project later this week.

(And by the way, Katrina-who-asked-this-question and her husband have a craft blog together. They need 50 followers to do a giveway, so go check out their blog!)

Alright. Just finished my lunch so it's time to get back to work! John and I are working on another Wedded Wednesday post for tomorrow. See you then!

Thanks for answering my questions. I recently asked those of a bunch of 1st grade girls. One (mine!) said she wished her name was "Chris" like the Adventures in Odyssey character and one said she'd always wanted to be called Star because it's a good dancer's name. Kinda makes me wonder what kind of dancing she watches.

I wouldn't mind a job as a Park Ranger at Rocky Mountain National Park...Rick & I actually got married there!
I concur with you about scrapbooking...it takes up a lot of time and energy to pull all the stuff out and find the right stuff to put on each page. I just finished doing a book (1 year) for my parents with Shutterfly...It was so easy to pick and chose what pictures and put it together and have it shipped to them...PLUS I got it ONLY for the shipping because it was a special. :) I can't wait to see you what you have done in the sewing department...that is the next thing that I want to start working on. Thanks for the plug about the blog! I was wondering how I got 2 new & different followers...

Your cute bob would look great in a park ranger hat.

Love quilting. Really want to learn how to do other sewing, too. Can't wait to see your projects.

I need to live near a patient, talented sewer who can teach me all the way from "how to turn on your machine." Yes, that remedial.

Here's another question for you. In your sidebar it says you're still reading The Maytrees. Really? Still?

I'll bet that conference was AH-mazing.

Park ranger?! HA HA HA. I know you're a mountain-y girl but I can't picture it.
