Gone Dreaming

I have been AWOL for almost a week due to working on my new katy prairie designs venture in San Antonio. We also were on vacation, visiting the hill country around Kerrville, Bourne and Bandera, looking for retirement property. But that's another posting!

More than a week ago, Jenny aka kansasrose on my blog links, tagged me for a meme. This one uses the letters of your middle name.
Here's the rules:

You have to post these rules before you give the facts. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blogpost containing your own middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and to read your blog.
So with all that said, here goes~
Diane is my middle name, (it is also the name I have always been called). I am going with it; as my first name is much too long for all that thought right now. My Mom said that my Granny Schultz (her mother) suggested Diane, as my middle name; and I am so glad she did, as I really like it so much more than my first.
D-Dance - I love to dance and have so since I was 6 years old; going to the local polka dances at the surrounding German Community Dance/Rifle Halls with my parents. In the part of Texas I grew up~dancing was all you had to do on Saturday nights. I still LOVE to dance today~give me a waltz, polka and/or two-step, and I am out there!
I-Imagination - Lets just say I have a BIG one! First, I wanted to be an actress. Guess I never got over that one!
A-Actress - There you go! I knew I missed my calling.........
N-New - Every day I wake up ~ it is new and good. I love being alive, and love my life. What more can I say?
E - Egret - Okay, I know this one is weird; but hear me out. I have the most coolest memory of a time Allen & I were sitting in the deerstand in South Texas. As we were watching the beautiful morning sun come up, and all the does and bucks were wandering around under our deer feeder, a beautiful blue egret flew past our stand. I could hear his wings flapping softly in the wind as he passed right in front of my eyes. The neat thing about this was we were on the same level as he was flying! In South Texas the deer stands are not on the ground, like a box stand; but high up off the ground, at approximately 10 feet from the ground to the bottom of the stand. So~now you know why I chose egret. I love that memory!
Jenny, that was so much fun! You really had me thinking more than I thought I could do this late~
Thanks for asking me!
