Well, folks, 11 weeks from today is Christmas Eve. Yea, can you believe that? Joyce must be thinking about it too because she asked us a "Christmas question" today. I'm surprised she hasn't asked some "wedding questions" too since she is "knee deep" in planning one right now. But, some how week in and week out she always comes up with "doozies" for us and we sure do appreciate her. Now, off to answer this week's questions.
I think I would have to say the early morning. I have always gotten up early even though I have nowhere to be. I am generally up between 5:15-5:30AM and I hit the floor running. I wake right up and begin my day. I am very productive in the mornings and find that by mid-morning I have just about gotten my "to do" list done for the day. Well, my list that must be done is taken care of and then I work on my continual "to do" list. ~chuckle~ And, I'm in bed between 10:00 - 10:30 because I generally wear down as the day goes by.
2. Waffle iron, toaster, coffee maker, mixer, blender...which small appliance would you say most needs replacing in your house?
Oh, no doubt about it, my mixer and I intend to do something about that around the time we move into our new house. I have always thought that I would like to have a Kitchen Aid but they are SO heavy and I have opted not to have one of the "lift shelves" in my kitchen. The reason is that I already have limited cabinets in my new kitchen and the lift shelf would take one whole cabinet space. I'm thinking I may go with a Krups. I had one years ago and loved it and it was very lightweight.
3. It's National Grouch Day (October 15)...what's something that makes you feel grouchy?
When I get overly tired and keep trying to push myself it often results in my being grouchy. I'm still blessed with a good bit of energy but if I'm burning the candle at both ends, it will eventually catch up with me. I try not to let that happen too often. ~smile~
4. Ever been to Canada? Is that a country you'd like to visit? According to Trip Advisor, the top ten best destinations in Canada are-Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, Victoria, Calgary, Niagara on the Lake, Niagara Falls, Whistler, and Halifax. Which city would you most like to see?
Yes, we have been to Vancouver, Montreal, Quebec City and Victoria. I would like to go to Whistler sometime.
5. What was your favorite food (or one of your favorites) when you were a child? Is that still a favorite?
Oh, my paternal Grandmother could make the best biscuits in the world and she would make the biggest mess making them. I remember standing right by her side as she made them pretty much every time we ate with them. I loved to put syrup on them and eat away. Once my Grandmother was no longer able to make biscuits I did not enjoy eating them nearly so much and don't to this day.
6. Do you cry easily?
Yes, but perhaps not as much in recent years, but I've always been brought to tears easily. And, it can be for happiness as well as sadness.
7. Have you started your (gasp!) Christmas shopping? If so when, and how much? If not, when will you even begin thinking about it?
Yes, I generally begin mine the first of Sept and this year was no different and I would say I am about 75% through. Our kids give me a list for themselves and the Grans and I work from that list. I enjoy giving them items they want and can use. And, a lot of the time they forget what they have put on the list and they are often still surprised when Christmas rolls around.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Do you watch DWTS? If so, then you have seen our Sadie Robinson dance her way into the hearts of DWTS fans. Sadie is of the famed Duck Dynasty family about 25 miles from where we live. If I didn't know better I would say she has been training for this time for years and years. But, she hasn't and I think she just has a whole lot of natural rhythm. If you have not seen her then you can go here if you would like and see her and Mark do the Cha-Cha. She and her family have certainly done their part to put NE Louisiana on the map. ~yea, for us!!!~
