The Crazy 8 Game

I’ve been tagged! I’m it! For this crazy game of crazy eights, it seems that I am to write eight responses to—what? Wait! Not eight questions, but four! It seems that I lucked out.
So, here I go, in cyber space’s first getting-to-know-Tina opportunity.

8 things I look forward to--in no particular order:
1. Eternal life
2. Being published nationally
3. eating freshly baked cinnamon rolls (in an un-calorie-counting world)
4. eating ice cream (in any world)
5. a good steak
6. visits with my kids and grandchildren
7. going to the temple
8. going on walks

8 things I did yesterday:
1. visited with grandchildren
2. drove home
3. worked
4. made bread
5. read a book
6. wrote a book review
7. kissed my husband
8. missed my children

8 things I wish I could do—in no particular order:
1. fly in a hot-air balloon
2. go white water rafting (which is crazy because I don’t swim)
3. go back to Denmark
4. speak Danish (but really, not a logical wish)
5. travel without a budget strain—will someone pay me to travel? Please.
6. be more visible—I’m trying, but it’s a step-by-step process for me
7. be published nationally—actually that’s closer to first on my list
8. lead all of my children to eternal life—also a deeper, truer wish than the others

8 shows that I watch:
This one is harder because I don’t believe a lot of tv is even worth mentioning. How about 8 books that I’ve enjoyed—in no particular order:
1. Harry Potter series
2. Twilight series
3. Loyalty’s Web, by Joyce DiPastena
4. Wake Me When It’s Over (and sequel), by Robison E. Wells
5. Seeking Persephone, by Sarah M. Eden
6. The Stranger She Married, by Donna Hatch
7. Delicious Conversation, by Jennifer Griffith
8. Prince Etcheon and the Secret of the Ancient, by JoAnn Arnold
I can’t leave it at that—I have to mention The Hourglass Door by Lisa Mangum—an excellent read that I’ll review here later.

I love that you wrote down books instead of TV series, Tina.
Your watercolors rock.
