What is your middle name?
I don't have a middle name! My maiden name had tons of syllables and was not easy to pronounce (think Schwartzenager!), so my parents didn't bother with a middle name.
Would you change any of your names if you could?
I do not care for my first name (not Gracie...)
but after so many years, I'm stuck with it!
If so, what would you like to be called?
Hey, you?
If you were a fashion designer, which fabrics, colors, and styles would you probably use the most?
I'm very tactile so I'd use silks, velvets, suedes, and soft woolens; I love color but especially browns, blacks and grays as a backdrop for jewel tones (sapphire, amethyst, ruby); I like tailored clothes and nothing fru-fru!
What is your least favorite chore, and why?
Cleaning toilets. No explanation needed...
What is something that really frightens you, and can you trace it back to an event in your life?
Fortunately, I don't have many fears, but the thing I dread the most is losing a loved one. Yes, I can trace it back to losing my dad at 21, my first husband at 30, my mom at 42. I treasure every day with my family.
Where are you sitting right now?
In my recliner in the den.
Name 3 things you can see at this moment.
Beside my laptop screen, I can see the TV, my dog and my favorite painting.

I'll clean your toilets if you'll do my grocery shopping! Sound like a fair trade?

This is a wonderful feast, Gracie (or whoever you really are, lol) My Mom doesn't have a middle name either, not sure why, but maybe they ran out, or maybe it because she's so tiny. haha.

Not playing this week but wanted to comment. I know your first name and I can bet I know why you don't like it. Enough said about that.

I don't like cleaning toilets either.

You are so right about family Gracie. I feel exactly the same. Big hug honey and you have a great FF and weekend. :)

A lovely feast.
I like your soup.
Agree, treasure everyday with your family.
My feast is up!

Hey you. I'm not a fan of the salad either. I think it comes from having "worshiped" too many of them during my college years.

I like to sit on my sofa in front of the tv with my laptop, especially when I watch the games.
