Meet me on Monday, week four

Like for the past few weeks, I'm joining Java here to get to know other bloggers, and let others get to know me better, one Monday at a time.

We've been quite busy the last few days/weeks following our soccer team in the World Cup. I'm glad they made it as far as they did!

I was also busy making the finishing touches on a recipe book, that a friend and I are making together. We hope it will be ready in a few weeks.:) Talking about food... thats part of the first question this monday:


1. What is your favorite Fast Food Restaurant?

McDonald's! The closest fast food restaurant is 500 km (310 miles) from here, so I can only indulge in a BigMac once or twice a year!

2. If given a complete freedom to start afresh, what profession would you choose and why?

I've thought long and hard about this one, and I don't think there is anything I would rather do than what I'm doing now. Farmer/rancher's wife, mother of 3 wonderful duahgters and sewing and crafting my way through life. I was a receptionist/secretary for 4 years before I got married, and if I had to choose a profession, I'd choose that one again:) (I took this picture this morning when my husband and I checked on the cattle. We had 13 new calves in one week:)

3. Do you prefer your toilet paper to come over the roll or under the roll?

I think it looks more elegant, when it comes over the roll. BTW, if anyone needs crafting inspiration while in the bathroom, check out this link:
(Thanks, Mirjam for the idea:)

4. What was your favorite tv show as a child?

Brady Bunch, Happy Days and the Dukes of Hazzard. (Wierd, eh?)

5. What is your favorite Summer drink?


Thanks for joining me today! Have a great week!


  1. Yeah for Tereré!! :) Mine too. With a friend, of course.
    And McDonald´s too. We have lots in common.

  2. Wow you have to go that far to a fast food restaurant? I guess I'm spoiled!!!

    Loved your answers!!

    Have a great week!

  3. Love the dukes, terere and YOU! See you mananita!

  4. It's fun to read your answers!

  5. Fun to get to meet you via the blog! Terere is growing on me. I have been here two years and find it to be a little bitter but very refreshing in the hot weather. I LOVE cocido in the winter though!
