1. I sometimes prefer the company of animals to people. Of course, I frequently have the need for a "human" conversation with one of my dear friends.

2. I am an avid reader now, but as a child I was a voracious reader. One summer I read over 100 books - at least a book a day. My mother would sometimes bribe me with buying me more books if I would take a break from reading for a few minutes to talk to her.

3. I have lived in 21 different houses and apartments during my 37 years on the planet. I'm planning on staying in the Happy Haus until I can no longer walk up and down the hill that is our backyard.

4. My favorite thing to do is hiking with my sweet husband and my dogs. Being out in nature is what best helps me to remember that everything is One.

5. As a child I was terrified of dogs. I got my first dog, a Siberian Husky named Lincoln, at the age of 21. Now my dogs are like my children and I love most dogs I meet.

6. I am fascinated by Buddhism and consider myself to be about 50% Buddhist. (I'm not 100% because I haven't reached that level of self disipline yet :-) Note to conservative family members: Buddhism is NOT a religion. It is a philosophy, which if followed by everyone just might solve most of the world's problems.

7. By the time our daughter Lily comes home I am planning on having our Newfies trained to pull her in a little red wagon. She will be the most stylin' and very loved child. I hope she doesn't mind having dogs as her only siblings :-)

My seven random people/blogs are...
Ni Hao Y'all
Charlotte's Angels
Lily and Kate
Pickle Chatter
Not So Nuclear
One More Day to Forever
Always in My Heart

Buddhism is fascinating. It's a beautiful philosophy. We only have cats...so yeah, no wagon-pulling for Reese. LOL. I'm a big reader, too. It's about as good of a pass time as any I figure.

LOL. My dad is 60, but you'd never know it looking at him. I think he looks closer to 45 or 50, than 60, my self.

I think my last attempt at a comment failed. I did my 7 things so you can go peek if you want. See you in yahooland tomorrow. Gosh when are those referrals coming???
