Wednesday Medley



It's Wednesday and Terri from Your Friend from Florida creates questions for those that want to play along each week.  

What is your claim to fame?

I think the main thing would be my gift of organization. Both my Dad and Mom were highly organized so I pretty much came into the world organized.  I think that an organized life is a productive life.  But, to each his own.  

What is something you like to do the old-fashioned way?

I still, and likely always will, keep a wall calendar with all our appointments and activities on it.  I do use my IPhone calendar as well, but only for birthdays.  I like being able to look at the entire month on my big wall calendar.  It's very satisfying to me. ~smile~

What did you think you would grow out of but haven’t?

I have never liked or eaten tomatoes, meatloaf or dark chicken.  And, that still remains.  I do not like the texture of tomatoes or meatloaf and I just don't like the look of dark meat chicken.  I've always been this way and can't see me changing at this point.


What is the dumbest thing you’ve done that actually turned out pretty well?

Well, just yesterday I was in Wal-Mart with quite a long list.  I had a dentist appointment at 11:00 and I went to Wal-Mart around 8:45 and I knew I would have plenty of time to get all the things on my list, bring them home and then get to the dentist by 11:00.  I was almost finished with my shopping and looked down at my watch and it was 10:30.  I almost fainted  and hurried over to check out.  I decided that I did not have time to bring the items home so I would just go on to the dentist and barely make it.  I loaded everything in the car and jumped in to head to the dentist.  When I looked at my dash I saw that the clock said 9:40.  Of course, I suddenly remembered that I had not reset my watch (that's what happens when you have more than one watch) with the new DST.  I ended up having plenty of time. 


If you had to change your name, what would you change it to?

Oh, I can't imagine changing my name but I would change the spelling of my name.  My name is Leah, but I spell it Lea.  My parents always wished they had spelled it with an H but said they were so excited when I was born that they were not thinking straight.  As a result I've often been called Lee.


What is something random you can tell us about this week?


I know, Halloween was a week ago but I didn't get these cuties posted so thought I'd do it now.  We had a sweet princess, a cute unicorn, a baseball player and a scary skelton.  They had their Halloween fun at their churches festivals and the girls got to go on a hayride.

  1. Love your answers here. I have an odd first name, too, and no one ever called me by that-they used my middle name. I didn't know I had a "real" first name until I went to grade school. lol

    Your little cuties are adorable all decked out for Halloween. Hope you have a great day- xo Diana

  2. Looks like the kids had fun on Halloween! So nice you're so organized. I was highly organized all the years I homeschooled (20) but then I was highly motivated to be so. Now I feel so disorganized. You and Diana should come spend a day or two at my house!!

  3. My name is THERESA, pronounced TERESA except some people say THE-RESA. I love tomatoes and dark meat chicken... AND meatloaf:) And my organization skills could use some tweaking:) Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  4. There was never any doubt that you are the organizing queen for sure. Isn't it interesting how traits from childhood are carried over into adulthood. Your's were no doubt gene related and simply cultivated. Regardless, you are our model to follow. Enjoy your wet Wednesday.

  5. Good morning, sweet friend. I so enjoyed your fun post. I, too, love a wall calender and tomatoes...I truly dislike them. Although, listen to this....during the first 3 months of my pregnancy I craved tomatoes and I couldn't get enough of them. After the 3 months I couldn't stand them {{smiles}}

    Enjoy your day! Hugs to you

  6. I like to keep a desk planner too. I like to write notes next to things we've been to and check them off.

  8. Everyone calls me Jackie, but I have never liked that so I decided to use my real name of Jacqueline when blogging since it was my choice, not kind of what happened over time. My granddaughter was named after me but spells it Jacquelyn, I tell her if anyone tries to call her Jackie, and they have, to say that is her grandma's name and that hers is Jacquelyn - haha!
    I love being organized, but when it comes to closets and drawers they don't stay organized very long! Wish it was one of my talents.
    Darling little trick or treaters. I always love to see what they choose.

  10. Organization is a great talent to have. Makes me think I'd feel comfortable in your home. :) I enjoyed your answers. I do still enjoy a paper calendar, too.
    Sweet grands! Happy Wednesday to you.

  11. I also love wall calendars and I also always wear a watch...not many people wear a watch anymore. I already had quite a list, so I did not add that one too. Hahahaha
    I love your name, and I love the way it looks, so pretty! I think it looks feminine and dainty. I loved your answers! Have a nice week!

  12. Like you, I like to have a paper calendar (mine's in a Daytimer notebook) with all of my appointments. I use my computer calendar but the one I count on the most is the hard copy paper one.
