Meet Me Monday!

1. How many pets do you have?

We have three dogs, Howie, Sophie, & Baby girl Minnie Bella.  
We have three fish ( Lary, Moe & Curly) we are getting more for our big tank so stay tuned. I love animals of all kind and love the idea of having many many more. 
The house we live in has enough land to have several animals and if I can have my way we are going to have  a bunny and some chickens next spring as pet's, I would also like a few goats so I can make some goat milk soap. 

2. If you could switch places with anyone in the world for one day, who would it be?

I have always wanted to be a singer go ahead and laugh!  (a country singer when I was little) If I could trade with anyone it would have to be....Taylor Swift. 

Young. Gorgeous. Talented.

For just once in my life, I'd love to experience what it would be like to walk on a stage with an arena full of people screaming for me. But just once.

Or maybe...........Kristen Stewart because she get's to hump him Robert Pattinson! :)

3. What is your favorite money saving tip?

Stay home........If you don't go anywhere unless you have to leave. Not leaving the house means using no gas, not spending money at a store. 

4. What do you want your kids to be when they grow up?

I don't have children of my own but I have niece's and nephew's that I love more then anything in the world. The thing's I want most for all of them is to love deeply, to be loved deeply back, do good in the world. Always be kind to other's and live a healthy life.  Oh and to always love their Auntie! 

5. What is your favorite quote?

Oh, well here are some that I love. 

Do not pursue the past.
Do not lose yourself in the future.
The past no longer is.
The future has not yet come.
Looking deeply at life as it is.
In the very here and now, the practitioner dwells in stability and freedom.
We must be diligent today.
To wait until tomorrow is too late.
Death comes unexpectedly.
How can we bargain with it?
The sage calls a person who knows how to dwell in mindfulness night and day,
'one who knows the better way to live alone.'
By Bhaddekaratta Sutta
Do not weep.
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
