Thank you Joyce one again for the great questions. Come on everyone - join in!
1. William Shakespeare's birthday is celebrated on April 23rd...when did you last read Shakespeare? What's your favorite Shakespeare play?
WOW I cannot remember the last time I read anything from William Shakespeare but I have a few favorites. In the Tragedy category Othello is my favorite. In the Comedy category Comedy of Errors and The Taming of the Shrew.
2. What food(s) would you recommend a foreign visitor try when they visit your home country?
I grew up drinking Moxie and was always told that it's a New England Drink. I've never seen it in stores anyplace but I have seen it on eBay so I know that anyone can get it. It's taste has been compared to Root Beer with an Attitude! It fits. So that is what I would like to offer a foreign visitor to my home state.
3. What's a lie you often tell yourself?
I'm a mistake, a Oops. I was told this a lot when I was little. I grew up believing it. It took a long time to believe that God knew me before I was born and He knew me and had a plan for me. You just don't have a plan for a mistake so it must not be true. I am loved by Hubby, by our children, by our grandchildren and I am loved by God.
4. What's something you're good at that might surprise us? Remember this is a family friendly blog!
I am very good at loosing things. I often walk around the house looking for my keys, my shoes, my phone. I seem to do too many things at once so I forget where I put down something. Then I have to walk around looking for it. Nothing is safe - one time while Hubby was gone, I lost the remote to the TV. It was a new TV and couldn't figure out how to not only change channel but also how to turn it off!!!
5. Who is your favorite animal character from a book?
Sorry, I guess I don't have a favorite animal character as nothing comes to mind. I can't wait to read what others put down.
6. April showers bring May flowers...do you have a green thumb?
I do have a green thumb. I like to toil in the dirt and watch things grow. The problem is I don't have the time that I once had to work in the soil. I miss it. I do believe that one day I will get back out there. But for now, this season in my life, I have others that need me to care for them and they are so much important.
7. Speaking of rainy days...which one of the following activities would you most want to spend time doing on a rainy day-
sort photos and create albums
read a good book
hold an all-day movie marathon
organize closets, cupboards, or bookshelves
try a new recipe
fix something that needs fixing
It's a toss up between hold an all-day movie marathon and organize closets, cupboards or bookshelves. It will all depend on what the movie marathon ends up becoming. I do have a hard time staying put so staying put for a movie marathon is hard but if I am tired, and the movie choice is good- it may just win out (after I finish organizing that closet, cupboard or book shelve)
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Our West Coasters are back home. The vacation is over. My heart is both sad and happy. I enjoyed a week of toys scattered all over the house, hearing little kids laugh, tickles every few minutes, hearing "Grannie I love you." or "Grannie, I want to sit next to you" Seeing all 4 kids attack Pepere at once. Food every where! Sleep overs and dogs who put up with a lot! It was a great vacation and a chance to see our children parent their children. It filled our hearts with pride to see the adults they have become. Our children enjoyed each others company and got along as if there were no miles between them. The cousins laughed, ran, ate, shared (mostly) and had a blast together. I feel blessed.
