11 random facts about Bethany:

1. Wherever I am, I like to pick up rocks I think are interesting or pretty. 
2. Sometimes...only sometimes, mind you, if the rock isn't very dirty, I may lick it to see if it has stripes or something like that. (because that's easier to tell when a rock is wet.) Now, if only I was the Tenth Doctor and could tell what minerals it's made of by doing that. :)

3. Just in case you're wondering, my favorite kinds of rocks to pick up are jasper, honey agates, and petrified wood.

4.  Next week, I'm going to be a camp counselor for the first time ever. :O
5. I gave a turtle a bike ride last week. He didn't mind too much, but on the way to the lake I didn't let him stop for a bathroom break... so I had to wash my shorts when I got home. :)
6. I'm a bit of a jack of all trades, master of none kind of girl. I have too many interests to get very proficient at one in particular.
7. I greatly dislike being put on the spot, but can sporadically come up with clever comebacks. 
8. My nose points slightly to the left. I have no idea why.
9. "Nines, nines, nines...What's so important about nines? I want to write my sentence!" Uh, oh yes! I like to randomly quote things. (quote from the Andy Griffith show- The Education of Earnest T Bass)
10.  I love owls.
11.  My love of music from the fifties and sixties grew from listening to a collection of CD's our dad had of classic car songs, like this one, and this one, ever since I was little.

11 random facts about Becca. 

1. My name typed out on a computer always gets underlined with red, they think I'm spelling it wrong. 
2. I love to wander.
3. When I am alone with a radio, very loud singing quickly ensues.
4. The only prints my clothes seem to have right now are polka dot or floral.
5. I quite enjoy being alone.
6. Paradoxically, I also quite enjoy spending time with people. 
7. My favorite kind of doughnut is a cake doughnut.
8. I love wearing feminine clothes, like skirts and dresses, but somehow I feel so weird if I just wear them for every day things.
9. I love to make people smile.
10. I have an imaginary friend. ( it's complicated ) :)
11. I have lived through a real life version of "Sense and Sensibility" with a twist. 

On to the questions!


1. What is your middle name?
      The name's Paige, Bethany Paige. Just like the pages in who served knights in medieval times, it means servant.

      Lynn for me. It's odd though, because my first name Rebecca means "snare" and Lynn means "by the lake" altogether meaning "snare by the lake". I've lived close to a lake nearly all my life.... cue the Twilight Zone theme song! 

2. Can you play any instruments?

     Guitar and a little piano
     I can squeeze a tune from a few instruments, including the piano, recorder and my vocal cords.

3. How many books have you read this month?

    I've finished three, and am still working on Bleak House by Charles Dickens. That might take me the rest of the summer though. :)
    *Gulp* Um.... none.

4. Polka dots or stripes?

Polka dots!
Polka dots! 

5. Do you like bikes?

That I do. 
Very much so!

6. What is your favorite country ( Outside of the U.S. ). 

     England, Holland, and New Zealand. Sorry, that's top three, I guess. :)

7. Do you like tape or glue better? :)

     Tape. "If I only had some duct tape..."
     Silence is golden, but duct tape is silver. 

8. What do you like best? Swimming or hiking?

     Hiking, though swimming is fun, you can't really do it year round.
     Hiking. But I'm sure hiking to an cave with a underground lake that you could swim in would be fun. 

9. If you could choose any career what would it be?

    To be a wife and mother. But if I stay single, an archeologist, maybe, or period costume designer, or a full time author, or the owner of a little shop..... :)
     Wife and mother for sure. But if that isn't in my future, I'd love to write, pursue illustrating, graphic design, maybe become a famous christian singer, and I'd totally be with you, sis, with the little shop. :) 

10. What is your favorite genre to read or write in?

     Historical fiction, most definitely. 
     Historical fiction is what comes to my mind first, but I love old fashioned fairytales too and quirky stories like the Phantom Tollbooth. 

11. How many animals do you want? ( If you want any, lol ).

     Lots and lots. :) Well, as many as I have time and money to care for, which at this time, our one little dog is quite enough. :)  
     Lots of them sound quite fun. :) 

Clara Ruth's:

1. Do you like eating or gathering wild edibles? 
     Yes! Once our family made a whole meal from wild edibles. 
     I remember that. It tasted very yummy. 

2. Which do you like better: Walking in the woods or watching hot coals/fire?
     Walking in the woods.
     Why not both? Walking through the flaming remains of the woods, and watching the timber transform into hot coals. Mwahahaha! :)

3. Where do you live?
      On the wide and lonesome prairie. Well, it's not too lonesome. 
       In a cozy little cave where I still can find wee traces of wifi to steal. Yeah, no. I live on the prairie too. :)

4. Which do you like better: Tea, Coffee, or Hot Chocolate?

I like all of them, all favorites! :) 

5. Are you scared of spiders or do you think they are fun pets?
     I'm not particularly scared of them, but I can't say I'd like one as a pet.
     Not scared of them, but I kill them rather calmly when I get the chance. Pet, no. But could I have one big enough to ride?

6. Do you own a harp and if so may I play it?
   Yes, but it's just a baby, so please be careful. 

7. Which do you like better: candlelight or electric light?
     Candlelight is pretty. :)
     Yes it is, and fire is always fun. 

8. Would you prefer to own a dog or a cat better (if any)?
     I would like a cat, since I already have a little dog. 
     If I didn't have either to start of with.... I'd get one of each. 

9. Do you have chickens?
    Well, we have parts of them chopped up and in our freezer, does that count? 

10. Do you know any languages besides English and are there any other languages you would like to learn? 
   I'd like to learn Dutch, but I only speak English.
   I'm not sure I even have a proper grasp on English. 

11. Do you plan to start your own business? If so, then what sort of business would it be?
    We have our little business of Clever Bunnies Mercantile.
    That's right folks!
