48 Questions – All About Henrietta

Coloured pencils

I saw this list of questions over on Look What mom Found, while blog hopping today. It’s been a long long time since I’ve posted anything like this and since it’s snowing and I’m procrastinating about work, I thought I’d join in. Just know that as a Gemini, I almost always have more than one answer to the question, I’m weird like that!

All About Me :)

    I really like quiet too, but I like the sound of children playing outside also. I used to wear contacts but they don’t correct as well as glasses so I gave up.

    Question to 44 and 45 — have you ever lived anywhere other than near where you grew up? I live in Toronto and live about 30 minutes from where I was born/grew up as well, and I’m just interested to see if many are like me and embraced what they’ve known for so long.
