My A to Z's

Here's a peak at more WIPs that I'll be finishing up for this month's Simply Primitives. After these two projects I have only one more Christmas WIP to finish! Then on to new projects with a promise to finish what I start!
This probably fits the category of TMI, but I have enjoyed reading everyone else's A to Z's so here's my take on the list.

A~   Age:  54 and fighting gravity and creaky knees.
B~  Bed: Cherry pencil post by American Starbuck, a local shop that is no longer business.
C~  Cats: Cookie and Foxy.
 D~  Dog: I'm waiting for grand-dogs. 
 E~ Essential start to my day:   Breakfast. I never run out the door without eating something.
F~  Favorite color:  Green
G~  Gym: I go almost every day because of "A".
H~  Height:   5'7"+
I~ Instruments I play:   None currently, although I took piano lessons for five years. I hated practicing.  Apparently my musician son takes after DH's side of the family.
J~ Job Title:   Coordinating Assistant to Kansas City Missions, which basically means I work with lay leadership to ensure that things go where they're needed.
K~  Kids:  Blessed to have two wonderful sons, Andrew and Mark.
L~  Live in:  A suburb of Kansas City
M~ Magazines: I think I'm addicted, especially to those about cooking, gardening and crafting!
N~ Nicknames: Berta, Robbie and beanbag to my sister.
O~  Organizing:  I'm happy spending an afternoon putting everything in order!
P~  Pet Peeve: Thoughtless, rude people.
Q~ Quote from a movie: "He's not a tame lion" about Aslan from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
R~ Right or left handed:  Both--left handed for small motor skills and right for sports.
S~ Sisters:  Two older sisters. Yes, I'm the baby.
T ~ T.V. Shows: Mad Men, Modern Family, football and what I call "murder and mayhem" like 48 Hours.
U~ Underwear: Soma Intimates--beautiful and wears well.
V~ Vegetable you hate:  Just tried kale for the first time and thought it was tasted pretty bitter.
W~ Wheels: Subaru Tribeca. Good for antiquing and those trips to and from college.

X~  X stitch: So many patterns, so little time to stitch!
Y~ Yoga: One of my favorite classes at the gym. 
Z~ Zoo Animals:  Giraffes. They're so sweet and graceful in a gangly sort of way.
