The seasons and holidays I love:

I love Fall and Winter the best. Growing up in Southern California, I appreciate a cool, cloudy day. I grew up not celebrating holidays for the most part, though since I was raised "half and half" I still had some holidays, so I guess all the ones centering around food, candy and gifts: Christmas, Easter, Halloween and Thanksgiving. Probably in that order. I think if I celebrated now, I'd like Thanksgiving the best, though knowing the origins, does tend to put a damper on it for me.

All the Words that Describe me:

Witty. Pretty. Fat. Frumpy. Sexy. Laid back. Intense. Creative. Depressed. Bored. Excited. Skilled. Average. Exceptional. Introverted. Friendly. Writer. Knitter. Crocheter. Mom. Wife. Daughter. Sister. Reader.
Feel free to add more...

Everything I'm good at or simply know how to do:

Okay, come on! That I KNOW how to do? I can go potty all by myself and tie my shoes...I can sew, but I don't like to. I can clean house, but I'm not good at it. My allergies act up too much. I can cook and bake fairly well. Write, crochet, knit, draw, act, type, ride a horse, drive a car, drive a car with manual transmission...ummmm....word games, scene it, Trivial Pursuit, Apples to Apples....ummmm....I can't think of anything else right now...that I want to post on a blog, that is.

Topics on Which I am already an expert whether others know it or not:

I am an expert at not doing housework...but many are already aware of that...I really do not think I am an "expert" on any topic. I do know the Bible fairly least from the P.O.V. of one of Jehovah's Witnesses. Oh! I know! Television shows--classic and current, Movies--classic mostly and some current. I guess there are many topics that I know "a lot" about, though I still wouldn't consider myself to be an "expert."

All my current or past hobbies:

As a kid, I liked to read, write, draw, watch TV and old movies, listen to music and crochet.
As a adult...just add knitting to that list. I probably don't listen to as much music as I did when I was younger. I just can't concentrate when I'm writing if there is music (with lyrics) on. Or maybe I do listen to about as much music, but maybe I'm trying out different music.

Topics that have been on my mind lately, especially those that I have been writing about in my journal or blog:

Mainly just writing...screenwriting and novel writing. I've been thinking about type II diabetes, and keeping a healthy heart--making it healthier. Procrastination. Pending empty nest syndrome.

The one topic I would choose if I had to write about only one topic for a whole year:

I can't decide: the ups and downs of raising kids? weight loss? diabetes? writing? Maybe writing. Maybe about the ups and downs of trying to write while raising kids--and how Christina Katz is going to help me!
