Welcome to Life Through Bifocals

Life is not always clear and easy to figure out. So grab a cup of coffee and your bifocals and let's see what we can see.

What a week this has been!! Playing with grand girls, gardening, cleaning, showing hospitality to a house guest and life in general.  Thank goodnes my Hubby loves me and copied the questions for me.  Come play along with us, won't you?

1. Under what circumstances do you do your best thinking?
Early in the morning after a really good nights sleep.  I seem to be clear headed and make much better choices then.  As the day goes on, my head just becomes too full of information and my thinking skills just goes down hill.  

2. Are you a risk taker? What's one big risk you've taken?
No not really.  I like to play it safe.

3. Some of the most common phobias according to the National Institute for Mental Health are-fear of spiders (arachnaphobia), snakes (ophidiophobia), heights (acrophobia), fear of spaces from which escape is difficult (agoraphobia), fear of thunder and lightening (astrophobia), fear of dogs (cynophobia), injections (trypanophobia), social situations, flying (pteromerhanophobia) and fear of germs and dirt (mysophobia). True phobias affect only about 10% of adults, but of those listed which would you rate as your greatest fear?
WOW! As I read the list my brain was going "Yup, yup, yup"  Holy cow!  I guess my greatest fear is  is flying and heights which really go together don't they. After all one is pretty high when one is flying right?  
  4. Are you settled or do you feel the need to move somewhere new?
I would like to move again.  Don't get me wrong, I like the town we live in and being in the country but I would like to be closer to the grand girls and on one floor.  It makes walking better on these old bones. We could still be in the country and still be closer to the girls.

5. What is something you find annoying when dining in a restaurant?
Over tired kids that really need to be home and in bed instead of out so late eating dinner.  I feel bad for the parents, but really people, take that poor tired child home and put him/her to bed. They don't care about eating out, they want to sleep!

6. Daffodil yellow, sunset orange, spring green, or sky blue...your favorite color this time of year?
Sunset orange for sure.

7. If you were going to take a holiday all by yourself, where would you go?
In the woods, in a log cabin, by a pond, lake or some other water source. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
This week, Thursday in fact, we are back at the doctor's to see if I'm still in remission.  I test every month and although I try not to think about cancer it's hard when every month I have to test and then wait for the results.  I am growing hair, it's blond!! It's short - oh my is it short - but it's growing.  The doctor thinks it will grow at the rate it did when I was a baby so I'll need a hair cut July 2016!!!  

Now it's your turn, jump in and answer  these questions.


  1. Beautiful pictures and I agree about the children in a restaurant. Praying all will go well at the doctors.

  2. I am surprised by your answers to #4 and #7. I would have guessed that you'd prefer warmer climates. I continue to learn about you, even after all these years.

  3. Prayers and fingers crossed more good news tomorrow. And you thought you were done with report cards - ha!

    Post a picture of your blonde baby hair. It's been so long since I've seen you as a blonde and I want to again!

  4. Well they say blondes have more fun, so you can let us know : ) I said unruly children for my restaurant answer too. I think it's less the unruly children and more those parents who pretend not to notice. Praying you continue to get good news!

  5. Yes one floor is awesome, we have that now but we need to downsize and I think being close to the grand kids is a must! Sounds like a perfect place to getaway. Hope all goes well at the doctors.

  6. On the positive side, just think of the money you'll have saved in hair cuts by 2016! Seriously, I'm praying your news continues to be good!


Thank you for stopping by today and if you left me a comment, thank you twice!
