My friend Marlene, at Stitchinbythelake, has tagged me to tell 6 random things about myself. So, here goes:

1. When home alone, I prefer my house to be totally silent--no radio, television, or music.

2. I love to read mysteries. My favorite authors are Agatha Christie, Mary Roberts Rinehart, and Anne Perry.

3. Although from the South, I prefer my ice tea unsweetened.

4. I like garlic salt on my popcorn.

5. I like to write romance and mysteries.

6. My two favorite pies are pecan and buttermilk.

I am supposed to tag six more people, but I've seen this tag on several of your blogs--so, if you haven't been tagged-----you're it!



  1. I love a quiet house too Mary. And buttermilk pie (after coconut cream and sweet potato). I just love pie I guess! blessings, marlene

  2. I enjoyed your list! I like Agatha Christie and Mary Roberts Rhinehart too! I don't think I've read Anne Perry.

    Having lived in the south a good number of years, you would think sweet tea would be my favorite. But I like my tea unsweetened. J, more closely connected to the north, prefers his tea sweet.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Mmmm, I've got to try that on my popcorn!


  4. I'm with you on the first one, Rose Mary...
    If I'm in my craft room or cleaning house, I like quiet. Radio and TV going is a terrible distraction to me. (and it gives me a headache!! LOL)

  5. Eeeeeek! Unsweetened iced tea?!?!?
    Are you sure you're not a Yankee?!?
    ;*O Just kidding! I prefer mine sweetened -- but I like unsweetened, too! I might have to check my bloodline out, too!

    Pecan pie -- your Southern Belle status has been redeemed!!! Isn't it yummy? I don't even save it just for Thanksgiving -- it's just too good!

    Garlic salt on popcorn is yummy, too -- as well as onion salt on fries (my husband taught me that one!!!!)

    Thanks for sharing your secrets!
    I've loved reading them!


  6. I may have to try the ol' garlic salt on the popcorn. I've used (and you will laugh at this) a southwestern chicken seasoning on my popcorn before, and that actually works rather nicely. But the garlic salt would probably be better for me!

    Hope you've been doing well, Rose Mary. I apologize I've been a bit AWOL. I've been taking on too much stuff lately, I'm afraid.

    I do think about you regularly, and send good wishes your way. :)
