There are a few things most people don’t know about me. Yes, I’m the homeschool lady. Yes, I have a sparkling personality. Yes, I tend to be a little bit eccentric 😉
Did you know about these?
1. I like to read.
A LOT! I love reading murder mysteries and biographies. I like reading my kids’ prescribed school books for fun! (Ambleside Online has all the links to a myriad of classics!). I enjoy spiritual reading, as well as things that stretch my mind a bit like psychology and alternative theories. I don’t always read as much as I’d like to, but I do try to carve out time.
2. I went through a gothic phase…
Yep, black hair, lips, eyes and clothes. Tongue ring. Music that drove my parents crazy! Thankfully I got over that phase as soon as I sorted my self-esteem issues out. Now I’m flower power alllll the way 😉 Flowy hippie skirts, bare feet, no make-up. I even took my earrings out a few years ago. No more hair dye. All natural!
3. I swear like a sailor.
I’m not proud of it, but it’s true… Never in front of the school kids, but sometimes in front of my family or alone…
4. I can’t really cook.
If my amazing hubby would die, my kids would probably die of boredom or starvation! Seriously, I’m the LEAST inventive person in the kitchen. My idea of a good time is mac and cheese… Hubby has taught me how to make a pretty decent curry, and I can bake, but it sure isn’t something I’d call myself good at!
5. I like eating peanut butter and chocolate spread of the jar with a spoon. I’m a savage like that 😉
6. My favourite colour is blue.
7. I wish I could live on a farm and raise chickens and cows and goats. I’d love to run a boarding school and teach my kids how to milk a cow, make butter, plant and harvest, keep bees, make leather goods, build fences and live off the land.
8. I LOVE coffee.
We buy the beans fresh from a local roastery, grind them ourselves and have a mini collection of tools of the trade, ranging from a mocha to a siphon. We’re coffee snobs!
9. I have tattoos.
Three of them: A cross on my neck (that I want to have changed to an anchor) that has a banner across it that reads ‘Saved by Grace’, my husband’s initial as my wedding ring and ‘We walk by faith, not by sight’ across both my feet.
10. I’m a hippy at heart-
I love standing in the rain, picking flowers, lying under trees and smelling the leaves. I believe in God and crystal healing and herbalism and essential oils. I like wearing my hair loose with ribbons and little braids. I like running on grass barefoot. I like singing and whistling and smiling and waving at everyone.
So, that’s a little bit about me! What do most people not know about you? Let me know in the comments!
