it's still hot

It's still hot here. This was my lunch today. And my dessert. Hot weather calls for some form of ice cream. Thanks for all your nice comments about the Poppytalk Handmade Market yesterday!

Esti tagged me over the weekend, so today here are my answers:

1. What were you doing 10 years ago?
I was working here, in the Special Collections Library. My life was full of books: old books, rare books, and artist's books. I took a trip to Portugal that year, to Porto and farther north. It was beautiful there.

2. What are the five things on your to-do list today?
Go grocery shopping
Take pictures
Think about sewing, but not actually do any
Make lemonade with the kids after school
Weed my garden after dinner when it cools down

3. 3 snacks you enjoy

4. 4 Places you have lived
Francestown, NH
Geneva, NY
Florence, Italy
Washington, D.C.

5. 5 things you would do if you were a billionaire
Make sure everyone in my family has a very comfortable life
Donate money to my children's elementary school teachers who are fabulous and don't get paid enough for what they do
Research and donate money to the top 10 most effective world charity organizations
Donate money for climate change research and solutions
Travel slowly around the world, taking pictures and eating good food

6. 6 people you would like to know more about
I'm having a hard time singling people out today, so if you'd like to play this game, feel free to carry on. I would like to know more about all of you! Surprise me and drop me a note if you decide to play. I'll put in a link here about your post.

Wow, you lived in Italy? So lucky. And in Florence no less. I love reading these...it makes you know a person a little better. I did the same meme a few weeks ago and really enjoyed having to think about some of those answers.

I like that icecream!

I've enjoyed your answers :)

Hi Raining Sheep, yeah I saw the same questions over on you blog too. It was fun to answer those questions, and more fun to see how others answer them! I lived in Florence during college when I did a semester there, studying art history. I loved it!

Hi Esti, it was fun to see your answers and know more about you too. Thanks for the challenge in answering those questions!
