Random Dozen Wednesday


1. Do you do garage sales? If so, tell me about one great find. If not, tell me why not.
I have had more than my share of garage sales, but I've never really gone to them. I do not want to get up early enough to be one of the "first" arrivals and most are so unorganized that it drives me insane .

 2. Name the last thing you fixed. 
Not sure what I last fixed, but I did put this activity table together for the "grans" all by myself. ~smile~

 3. Name your A) Favorite item of makeup OR B) Favorite tool

Well, truth be known, all makeup is my favorite! I cannot imagine life without it but lipstick is the "icing on the cake" for me.  It is the last item of makeup that I put on and it seems that it truly brightens up my whole face. I have told my children that they had better not forget to put lipstick on me when they bury me. ~chuckle~

 4. Which room in your home needs organizing more than any other? I am the "organizing queen" so I really can't think of any room that needs anything other than a little straightening. I certainly do not mean to sound as though I am bragging, but it is just a fact.  My Mom and Dad were both highly organized, so I came by it honest on both sides.  Heaven help us!

5. Which room could use re-decorating? We just did some major redecorating a year ago throughout our home, so don't need to do any redecorating at this time.

6. Share something unique about your town. A mere 25 years ago our town was home to two paper mills, it is now home to none.  The last one, International Paper, closed just a little over a year ago. The effects of this loss has been devastating to our small rural town.  But, we are hoping to survive!

 7. If you could send a one-sentence message to your great-grandchild, what would it be? Nothing is impossible with God!

 8. Do you Facebook? 
 Oh, my goodness, I think that Facebook is the greatest "tool of connection" since time began. I have reconnected with so many great folks that I would likely have never found any other way. It is also a great way to keep up with folks day to day lives. Of course, there are always those that misuse it, but for me, it is G-R-E-A-T and a whole lot of fun!

9. Describe your favorite shoes. I love Yellow Box
flip flops. They come in just the right height for comfort and the rubber soul is most comfortable too. I can wear them for hours without my feet never hurting me. I miss them terribly in the winter.

10. Do you listen to more talk radio or more music radio?  What kind of station is it? It is XM, Channel 28, Escape, an easy listening music. Love it!
11. How far would you travel for a really good (favorite) meal? We often go about 20 miles to dine out and that's plenty far for me.  If we have a group and are just going on a fun outing then a few more miles would be okay ~smile~

 12. If you were totally honest with yourself (and us) what should you probably be doing right now instead of blogging?  Ouch! reading and studying the Word. I have fallen short in my Bible Study recently and there's really no excuse for it.

Hi there! My name is Lea. I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Ha-I love the lipstick comment : )

    I don't think it sounds like bragging...some people are natural born organizers. I am not the queen of organizing (although I do have my areas that I can really drill down on) but I am married to the king of organizing so my house is always organized too.

    Enjoy your day!

  2. Good morning, Lea =)

    I'm sure one of the things you must have learned from your parents was to get rid of the excess stuff ~ What a blessing to have little enough stuff that it all can have a proper home ~ and still not be wanting =)

    We did work on the living room here last night ~ moved ALL the extra boxes out, so DD could mop the entire floor. Now I need to find a different place to park that stuff, and determine what of it I don't need or love so it can go OUT the door! And then move on to the next room...

    Trying to get the place looking a little more like home before Tim & Kate return next week =)

  3. Oh my goodness! I can't believe this is the first time that I have visited "Cici's Corner"! You are just the sweetest person and your comments always brighten my day! I'm now a "follower" :)

    I am VERY organzied at work and certain areas of our home but I really need to concentrate on my organization efforts at home! I'm envious!

    It was fun reading your responses - thanks for sharing :)

  4. I would rather go to a garage sale than have one anytime. Having them is way too much work.
    I totally agree with #8. There's some friends and family I may never have found if not for facebook.

  5. Really enjoyed visiting your blog--you sound like a kindred spirit! I'm a make-up lover too, and the lipstick comment is great!

    Hope you'll stop by my Random Dozen when you can.

  6. I agree with the lipstick yet I just can't get them to stay on. Even the lip tints! I don't go on Facebook very often but I love the connections I have made with so many dear friends from my past. I know that I could spend more time in the word. Great answers.

  7. You're the second person today that mentioned Yellow Box flip flops. I had never heard of them, but I'm going to check it out.

    I have been guilty of blogging more than studying the Word, too. I'm going to work on that.

  8. I like your answer to #7! ~ I did facebook for awhile, but it created alot more headaches for me than I cared to continue with. I know a lot of people have fun with it though! ~ You would love Giordano's so if you are ever in Chicago you must go there!

  9. Don't bury me w/o lipstick! Love it! Your sentence to your great grandchild was a good one. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  10. I have never had or even wanted to have a garage sale. Just haul it all to Goodwill.

    Enjoyed reading your answers.

  11. Gotta love facebook! :) Actually, My brother and I earn money on there now by making game applications.. so now I like it even more haha!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
