5 More Facts About Me



Here are 5 more facts abut me.  I don't want to overstay my welcome here but I think this 5 Fact Friday

  is only for the month of August.

1. My favorite colors are purple and green or any shade or variation thereof......could be pink and green

or purple and teal.



2. My favorite treat is an espresso macchiato and morning bun from Starbucks.  My hubby and I bike to

  Starbucks on Sunday mornings and sit outside with our coffee and breakfast treat.


Oops, the cup is empty and I ate the morning bun already .  

3. My hubby and I share a love of animals.  We have two cages of birds on the patio.  

His cage has cockatiels and Bourke's parakeets.  

My cage has budgies.  This is a pair of my budgies in a breeder

 cage.  They had five babies.



4.  I love being retired and having my alone time.  I'm a bit of an introvert at times.

5. However I also enjoy the company of friends......lunch or coffee with a girl friend or getting together

 with family.  You probably know from my post here, that I recently met up with two of my blogging

 buddies.  That was really fun because they "get it".

I'm linking up with the others at

 

Why not play along...it's fun.
