Debra's Meme via Alissa--and a picture


This is a painting of a leaf taken from a picture that I again filched from Alissa, and you can see the original photo on her site. Of course the painting doesn't do the spectacular photo justice, but it was a very eye-catching picture. Sorry that I placed it in the scanner crooked. Just turn your head a little to see the straight version. :)
Here's my version of the meme:
I give you money and send you into the grocery store to pick up 5 items. You can only pick one thing from the following departments.. what is it?

Dry Goods: Spaghetti

Let’s say we’re heading out for a weekend getaway. You’re only allowed to bring 3 articles of clothing with you. So, what’s in your bag?

Ha! Ha!
Really?

Give me a break!

So, what 3 things do you find yourself doing every single day, and if you didn’t get to do, you probably wouldn’t be in the best mood?

You are at a job fair, and asked what areas you are interested in pursuing a career in. Let’s pretend you have every talent and ability to be whatever you wanted, so what 4 career would be fun for you?

If you could go back and talk to the old you, when you were in high school, and inform yourself of 4 things, what would you say?
Have more confidence in yourself
Listen to your parents.
After college, give yourself a year on your own before settling down to marriage and a family.
Life is good--enjoy yourself!

OK, consider yourself tagged, and let me know if you answer the questions!
That was easy enough, I guess. At least it gave me something to write about. Maybe I will get a chance to post again about Thanksgiving before heading to Florida next week to visit my dad. If not, have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and remember we have much for which to be thankful. After all, life is good!

Love the painting! You did a nice job on the leaf, but the rock is awesome! Totally realistic looking. You're really getting good :-)

I also love the painting :)
Memes are such a good way to learn a bit more about each other.
One more thing we have in common:
I can not walk around a hotel/motel room in my bare feet. Have to have sox or slippers!
