You caught me

All those lessons I've been learning and the Halloween costume crafting has made my life on the computer scarce- Lei tagged me for a meme so here goes-

What do you like most about where you live? It's quaint, little towns, farms, gorgeous autumns- some serious deals- okay maybe it's my favorite dairy and fruit farm. Plenty of days when you can stay inside watch the snow, curl up with a blanket and hot chocolate. Here you live through seasons and that experience helps you respect and find beauty in all the seasons of your life.

Is there anything strange about where you live? oh where do I begin-people here use oil heat, they also still build new homes with no a/c and baseboard heaters??!!!overhead power lines, they call strollers and carts "carriages", there is a dunkin donuts on every corner, housing is more desirable/expensive in towns without stores?! every road has 2 lanes only,

What is one of you all time favorite music albums? Why? Van Morrison Moondance- it is ultimately mellow- I can listen to it any time any place. I always take it when I travel to another country, and know I will be jet- lagged

Did you have a passion for something as a kid that you still have now? Just about everything I do you probably could've predicted if you knew me as a child- I started cakes at age 8, painting since toddlerhood, I've always been a "giver"-- I really love to give people things, my parents had to forbid from giving away all the money in my piggy bank when I was little

What do you like most about having a blog? It is the absolute perfect voice for me- I am a creative and relatively unstructured person- it lets me constantly have avenue for any sort of creative thought, my brain kitsch, anything kicking around in my brain. I have always kept sort of "un-journals" and sketchbooks where I recorded stuff, but this takes it to a new level. I love the exercise of writing.

I am so longing for season changes I can't stand it and your description of your town makes me miss it even more. It sounds just lovely.

I grew up thinking that oil heat and no a/c and overhead powerlines were totally normal. Little did I know...
