99 Things About Me!

Hi, all!

The sky at our place last night -
contrails in the sky lit by the moon...

My friend Helen over at Patchy Work of Mini Grey posted this fun list earlier in the week as part of her Blogtoberfest (a challenge to herself to post every day in October) - take a look at it and learn a little bit about me, and maybe about yourself!  Copy the list and mark it about yourself - Things you've already done in bold. Things you want to do in italics. Things you haven't done and don't want to, leave in plain font. Post it on your blog to give everyone a little glimpse of who you are and who you’d like to be!  Let me know in the comments if you have played along!
