We picked grapes for icewine last Thursday. IT WAS COLD! LIke...really cold. About 10 actual degrees, with a windchill of below zero. But it was fun, and the kind folks at Prairie Moon Winery gave us a really nice little special tour!

Bookswap Questionnaire :)

2. What type of book do you most enjoy reading? Really good fiction...some non-fiction adventure...I read a wide variety of things.

3. What fictional character do you most resemble? I'll have to think about that one...

4. What is your favorite type of sweet or chocolate? dark chocolate, mmmmm!

5. What are your hobbies? yoga, knitting, reading, natural dyeing.

9. When is your birthday? May 18, 1977

10. What is your favorite scent? I run an herb shop, so I am well-familiar with smelly stuff. I LOVE real EO's - I'm not a fan of synthetic scents. Patchouli, sandalwood, and amber are faves, but pretty much anything natural is great.

12. Do you have wishlist on Amazon or another site? Yep! just search for Maggie Howe's wishlist

13. What kind of music do you like? Are you MP3 compatible? I DON'T like country or opera...from there on out, I'm more openminded. I'm not really mp3 compatible, I'm kind of a musical luddite.
