Meet the blogger — 62 Comments

  1. Pillars of the Earth – great book and I love Dances with Wolves too – didn’t even think it might not count! Great to get to know everyone a little better today.

  2. Haha – love that picture! You’re giving eachother the same look!
    I liked Pillars of the Earth in the same way that I liked the Count of Monte Cristo – the beginning and end was interesting and enjoyable, but the middle took me some time to power through.

  3. I thought you would mention your love of the beach………….I know you don’t like olives either

  4. So glad you joined the hop! Loved reading more about you.

    Also, I love that photo of you and Torrey – the looks you are giving each other are priceless. :)

  5. You have always wanted a CORGI!!! Well, when you meet Brychwyn (and he barks exhuberantly at you for 60 straight minutes) he will cure you of that desire. And, no, “Dances with Wolves” does not count as a non-pet movie. (But nice try- I wouldn’t be able to answer that question either. Why would anyone watch a movie with no animals in it?!?)

  6. Hi Mary! It’s great to get to know you better. We pet bloggers tend to be defined only by our furry children.

    I think Dances with Wolves counts. It has an animal in the title and here and there in the movie, but it is not a movie about an animal. I love this movie too. I think it is one of Kevin Costner’s best.

    I can’t believe you wish you were better at beading. You’re very good at it! I wish I had more time to do beading. I have a ton of seed beads that I haven’t done anything with for quite some time. Too busy.

  7. How do so many dogs know the worst possible time to ask to go outside…always just as I have settled in to relax. Glad to know mine are not the only ones.

  8. Corgis are awesome! Funny, I just read Amy’s post (who also travels constantly w/ her hubs) and you both used the word “driven.” Sounds like you two have a lot in common!

    I’ve got Pillars of the earth on my shelf, waiting to be read! I need to move it up in the queue. So many books, so little time!

  9. Raising two boys to become very nice adults is a HUGE thing to be proud of! Great getting to know more about you!

  10. Great learning all about you – but if you ask me – it looks like you’re already pretty darn talented with the beadwork. :-) As for that lottery, playing certainly helps, but I never remember to buy a ticket either.

  11. I never ever would have guessed that you’re driven or impatient. And it’s lovely that you have grown sons you can be proud of. That really happens, huh? There’s hope?

    • Yep, it does happen. Just keep at it. I have had a hell of a time getting on your blog the last few days. That’s why I haven’t visited, it just won’t load for me. )-: I’m pretty sure it’s my connection where we are out in the middle of BFE right now.

  12. Hi Mary. Nice to learn a little more about you. I am envious of your life traveling around the country in your RV. You may not have much money but there is a huge value in freedom and flexibility.

  13. It’s so nice to meet you! That is an adorable selfie, too! And, oh my gosh. I just read Pillars… so, so good! I’m telling everyone (who has hours and hours of reading time because it’s a long one) to pick it up!

  14. I’m so glad that you joined the hop and that I got to know a little more about you!

    I laughed when you said you probably shouldn’t mention the first thing that comes to mind that makes you feel fabulous!

    Raising 2 boys into nice adults is something to be very proud about!

  15. I’m having so much fun reading all of these posts! I saw yours first thing this morning and love the fact that you took a selfie :) Great shot!! I see a dog blogger breakfast in our future!! (oh, and impatient is my middle name!)

  16. Ya know….being a poor gypsy doesn’t sound too bad right about now!! Sometimes I feel a need to get rid of all of this “STUFF”!! I laughed about the fabulous comment too! By the way…how could you be BETTER at Beading???? You ROCK the beading!! Jeanne, Chloe & LadyBug

  17. It’s great to learn more about you, Mary. I also love Ken Follett and that book was a good one of his. Love the photo of you and Torrey!

  18. I love that you said raising your two boys well is what makes you most proud. :)

    Can I come lay in the sun with you all? (We have 2 feet of snow already so lying in the sun will be missing until sometime next June. :| )

  19. So glad you joined in! If I could do yoga without pulling a muscle or hyperventilating, I would definitely proud.

    I am with you for most of all this but salad?? Really?? ;-)

  20. Wow, I don’t think I knew that you had kids! Well, they used to be kids anyways I suppose. Lots of other stuff I didn’t know about you here too.

  21. Whoo hoo!! Glad you joined the hop (although I did have an idea of what you look like.) I think this has been a really fun hop and judging by the participants others did too.

    I enjoyed Pillars of the Earth as well, it was a good book!

    Two boys, huh? I would have never known that!!

  22. I finally made it here! Mary – I love your travels with the dogs. I know being broke would suck (been there), but I do love that you get to try new adventures and that you have the freedom to go hiking without thinking too much about where you can go that has hiking available.

    I have heard so many people say that Pillars of the Earth is good. I may just have to read it. It’s a big book but quite a page turner from what I hear.

    Love getting to know you better!

    P.S. I’ll be voting for Torrey when it is time!

  23. Very nice to meet you! It’s taking me a while to get to everyone else’s “Meet The Blogger” posts. I think this blog hop is the most popular one I’ve joined since I started my own blog. It’s great knowing all the pets, but there’s something special about meeting the humans behind the scenes.

    I think your photos are gorgeous! I can’t wait to have more time so I can check out more of them!

    Funny you should say you’ve always wanted a Corgi…I think they’re adorable, but until we adopted/rescued Ducky (who’s part Cardigan Corgi), I never thought I’d be able to keep up with one. Now I know I was right, but she’s so sweet I can’t imagine my life without her!

  24. That was fun to read all your answers! My Mum wanted to do this, but as usual time ran away, maybe next time, however, we can still enjoy reading everyone else’s which is super fun!

    Thanks for sharing,

    I hope you’re having a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)
