I was over reading BohemianMom's blog, and she had this cute meme on there...and since I've never done one before, I thought I'd give it a shot...

1. What I was doing five years ago:
~Pretty much what I am doing now. Caring for little ones, and creating whenever I could.

2. Five things on my to-do list:

~ start my seeds
~ finish the painting I started two weeks ago

~ take back my overdue books to the library

3. Five favourite smells:
~ I have a very poor sense of smell, but the ones I can pick up are...
~ mint
~ lavender
~ Nag Champa
~ ylang-ylang

4. Five junk-food items I enjoy:
~ dark chocolate(it's kind of good for you...)
~ red wine...(also kind of good for you...)
~ coffee(I drink organic, but still way too much!)

~ Canadian Moose icecream

5. Five favourite articles of clothing:
~my belly dancing scarf
~ my cozy cashmere aran cardigan(because I knit it myself)

6. Five things I would do if I was a billionaire:
~ donate like a wildwoman!
~ Make sure my kids,and close relatives were financially secure, but not spoiled...:)
~ Buy an old house, with a big old barn, on Salt Spring Island, and make it completely eco-friendly...live off the grid...with gorgeous gardens...and tons of trees....and an art studio, and workshop for Jon.
~ Have an organic farm....yoga studio/antiques store/flowershop...all in one...
~ Own a horse....and lots of big,cuddly dogs and cats...oh, and maybe a goat or two...

7. Five of my bad habits:
