You're it!

The Queen (or is she the Handmaid of the Queen?) at Regina Terrae tagged me with a kind of meme I'm not sure I'll manage to fulfill. It's supposed to include 7 facts about oneself that one's readership doesn't already know.
Having maintained this blog with a reasonable amount of fidelity for almost five years, I'm not sure I have any secrets left at all. So pardon any repeat performances you find here...

The rules:
  1. Link to your original tagger and list these rules in your post
  2. Share 7 facts about yourself in the post
  3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names and links to their blogs
  4. Let them know they’ve been tagged.
Since it is calling for 7 facts, I will use a calendar approach:

Sunday's sundry: In sixth grade I was a big "Star Trek" fan (the original series, mind you). My favorite character was Spock, and to this day I can offer the Vulcan gesture of greeting.

Monday's morsel: I used to hate bell peppers, and now I can't imagine cooking without them.

Tuesday's tidbit: I developed an appreciation for architecture after living in Rome. (That has served me well in Chicago, where there is so much architecture to appreciate!)

Wednesday's whatnot: My voice teacher in college tried to discourage me from attempting a career in music; I had to reassure her that I was headed for the convent and only taking voice for sheer love of singing. (Fast-forward 30 years, that same teacher became Sr. Julia's voice coach in New Orleans!)

Thursday's thingee: On Jesus' "to do" list for me: Get me to Rome (any time!), Spain (again!), Ireland, India and the footsteps of St. Paul!

Friday's factoid: My family has the most amazing Hurricane Katrina story you will ever hear in your life.

Saturday's soup├žon: I'm kind of a jack of all trades, master of nun... I mean, "none"!

Now, to tag seven more souls... That's easier on Facebook than on blogs these days! My audience hasn't been showing its face in the comment box, so I can't tell who's even there unless I go snooping in Statcounter. Can I have seven volunteers for now? You can bi-locate in the comment box so we have your links.... Sorry, Regina; this is all I can do right now! Nunblog lurkers, show yourselves!

Hi, Sister Anne!

Oh, Handmaid of the Queen! You know, after I posted my 7 things, I thought I should have made one of them an explanation of my blog-name. My real name is Regina, and my spiritual director nicknamed me "Regina Terrae" because of my passion for gardening and raising my own food, and sustainable farming in general. But Regina Coeli is Queen of my garden!
