Today I'm answering a question meme from Sara who is new to the blogging world. She has asked five questions which could be interesting in my state of "menomenno" as Jill likes to call me . .(I told her she should send this word to the dictionary people. It means menopausal Mennonite woman . ..I laughed till I cried). As I was saying my thinking process isn't always that definitive right now . .as you are soon to see.
Question number one . . .
What is your favorite summer dessert?
Oh this one is easy. Phew . . . My favorite summer dessert is something baked with fruit. Perhaps a little broad in my answer? Okay. Well, I love raspberries in trifle, or fresh raspberry coulis. Yesterday I had an email from Charlotte my blog friend in Winnipeg. She said she was making Napoleon torte. Ever since then, I haven't been able to get Napoleon torte out of my mind and it would be really tasty with some raspberry coulis drizzled on top. So . .that's what I'll say, even though I could easily list a dozen things. I'll make the Napoleon torte soon and post it. Thanks Charlotte . .for making me hungry for Napoleon torte. Perhaps my Auntie Betty who makes this so yummy will come zipping up my driveway in the next hour with one . .smile.
Question number two.
How did I get my name?
Well, I've answered it before but I'll do it once more for those of you that have missed this story. My mom was in bible school around 1940. She had a bible school teacher that had a little girl that could neither hear nor speak. Her little girl's name was Lovella. My mom loved that name so much that she did the smartest thing possible. She never told anyone. Not a soul. She pondered the name in her heart through five pregnancies and four boys. Incidentally, had I been a boy she said she was desperate to use the name in part so she was going to call me Laverne. Thanks mom. So, when I was born, she called up my dad, who was cleaning eggs at home on their farm, and she said . .Lovella is here. Apparently as the story goes, they were delighted. (smile)
Question number three.
Where would you travel if you could go anywhere for six months without the concern of cost or responsibility?
Although I would love to go to Europe and parts of England my love is for my country. Terry and I plan to travel across Canada at some point. We don't know when but when we do go, we'd like to take our time, and see all the beautiful provinces. There is such beauty in each one.
Question number four.
What is your favorite season?
This is another really easy one . . .(big snicker and a chuckle to boot). I love Autumn. This is inherited since every fall when the leaves came down, my parents would pile us all in the family vehicle and drive us up the local mountains so that my mom could have a proper walk in the crunchy leaves. We all thought this was quite funny since she made such a big deal out of it. She's been gone twelve autumn's now and I wait and watch the trees and when there is an appropriate amount of crunch on the ground, I make a big "todo" out of a proper walk in the leaves. Having said that, you who have faithfully read my blog since last fall have seen that I also have quite a thing for each new season and the joy I find in seeing the signs of the season around the corner.
Question number five.
What is the most daring thing you'd like to do?
Well, here's the thing, I'm not one of the jump out of the side of a plane types.
Sorry that this won't be more exciting.
I love to climb mountain. Last summer when we camped at Manning park we hiked up quite high in my unexpert opinion. I really loved it. I would like to be able to hike a mountain that is worthy of a proper post. Something that would be impressive. Alas, I first need to get in shape. When I do, and when I do, you'll know about it. Surely I'll make a big deal out of my daring adventure.
So that's it then, those are my answers. The next part is to ask five different questions of five different people. This is where I'm dropping the ball. Terribly sorry . . .I just never know who enjoys these meme's
If you liked these questions, and would like to answer them your self then please do. If you don't have blog, just go ahead and answer them in the comment field. I value your answers too.
Well, I'm off to have a 30 minute walk, we're going camping this summer again and I see a mountain in my future.
Have a great day my friends.
