Some bloggers are doing VLOGTOBER....including my friend, Whitney, at Come Home for Comfort. Be sure and check her out! I am not video material but I thought I might use some of the prompts that were suggested for the Vlogs. One prompt was to share a bit about yourself. I can do that.
My first name is Bonita. Mothers never call your child by their middle name. It is such a pain. I was a shy child and everyone mispronounced Bonita and let's face it, Arlene was not a popular name in the 60s when I was in elementary school. My mom wanted to name me Ellen but my dad did not cooperate.I would have loved the name Ellen. And my initials were BAT. Now you know why I would like to be a name consultant for new moms.
I have lived in these places...Atlanta GA, Oak Ridge TN, Athens GA, Lousiville KY, Huntsville AL and Decatur AL. We have been in Decatur for 24 years now and we have lived in three different houses. My husband says our next move will be to the nursing home or the cemetery.
My favorite job was my time as a nurse at the Student Health Center at the University of Georgia. ( Please do not call it an infirmary!....the people who worked there would bite your head off!!). It was a low stress job and while it did not pay as well as a hospital, it allowed me to work part time and Marvin kept Ben and Amelia so no day care!
Favorite past time...reading and cross stitching. I used to enjoy watching tv when I was younger but frankly there is not a lot to watch these days. However I must say I love Downton Abbey!! The new Masterpiece Theater series, Home Fires, is my new favorite British show. Why do the Brits do all the good shows?
Favorite food....Give me steak and potatoes any day!! I also love anything chocolate so dessert for me is easy.
Favorite color...RED. I have always been drawn to a pretty cherry red.
Favorite holiday...Christmas with Thanksgiving running a close second. Fall is my favorite season.
Dream Vacation...I would love to travel to England and visit Yorkshire where my Tankersley ancestors hail from! I would also like to travel to Scotland and Ireland....more family history there as well.
My favorite place in the USA...other than the South that is....would be Vermont. We visited Bennington Vermont ten years ago and I would love to go back to New England. Maine is on my bucket list. I would also like to visit Nantucket.
My favorite Bible Verse...I Samuel 12:24 Only fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart. For consider what great things he has done for you.
My favorite hymn....And Can It Be
Well I guess that shares some things about me that you might not have known. And be thankful that I did not do a vlog!!:)
