Sunday Stealing

Bev always seems to come up with such interesting questions and today's are most interesting.  It's all about phones and pancakes.  What a combination!!!

1. Your phone rings. Who is the most likely caller?

Well, 75% of the time it is this gal and I never tire of hearing from her.  She may live 8 hours away but I'm not sure we could be any more in touch with each other even if we lived in the same city.  She calls on her way to school every morning and on her way home. That way I get to share in her and the boys days.

2. How long do you chat on the phone each day?
I would say that most days about an hour but I'm sure there are days that it's more than that depending on what's going on.  I generally have a purpose when I make a call and that purpose may be nothing more than checking in with someone but none the less, it's important to me. ~and that's all that matters~ I'm never just chatting on the phone though, I'm generally multi-tasking while I'm talking so it works for me.

3. Who do you speak to the most?

On the phone, it would be my daughter as referenced in #1.

4. Do you often not answer if a certain person comes up on your caller id?

No, the only calls I do not answer or the 800 numbers or some call from a really strange number.  Those generally always happen around the noon hour.

5. Do you phone friends at work?

I don't really have any friends that work at this stage of my life but I would not call them at work unless it was an emergency.  No time for chit-chatting when someone is at work.

6. Do you make personal calls at work?
This question is not applicable to me but when it was I did not.

7. Who do you always say “I love you” at the end of the call?
It varies, but it's always a family member

8. Do you use a landline or cell more often?

I use my cell phone 100% of the time and we would not even have a landline if it were not for my husband's business.  As long as he has his insurance agency he will have a landline so that his clients can find his number in the phone book and call him.

9. Who in the blogosphere that you haven’t chatted with but would like to?   

I met Andrea about a year ago through our blogs and she is one of the sweetest gals and such a joy to know.  She leaves the all time best comments, just seems to have all the right words.  I would love to chat with her and perhaps one day we'll get to do just that over a good ole glass of sweet tea. She lives in Indiana and me in Louisiana, so it would definitely have to well thought out. ~smile~ You can find Andrea's blog here. And, might I add, there are many others, such as Lisa, Stephanie, Joyce, Katie, Barbara, Theresa and the list goes on and on.

1. Scratch or mix? Buttermilk or plain?
Oh, I have used a mix and they really are good but they just aren't that difficult to make from scratch.  I don't even remember the last time I made pancakes but I use to make them quiet often when the kids were at home. The recipe I use makes them very light and fluffy and not packy in the least.  Just the way I like them. 

2. Pure and simple, or with additions cooked in?

Pure and simple with butter and syrup only.  Just do not care for "stuff" in or on pancakes.

3. For breakfast or for dinner?

Breakfast with a side of crispy bacon and a hot cup of coffee. ~yummy~

4. Preferred syrup or other topping? How about the best side dish?

Guess I just answered this in #2 and 3

5. Favorite pancake restaurant?

I don't generally have pancakes when I eat out at breakfast but IHop does have some mighty good ones.

Bonus: Any tasty recipes out there, for pancakes or other special breakfast dishes? Bring 'em on!

    1. Five weeks ago my boyfriend broke up with me. It all started when i went to summer camp i was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy. What’s app contact : +44 7520 636249‬

  2. I have met some wonderful friends online as well. I know I will only get to meet them in heaven one day, but how fun will that be? They live so far away right now for us to make a real live meet happen. I have met a few though. Your friend Andrea sounds great. Hopefully you will get to meet!

  3. Like you, the Lord has given me some wonderful friends via blogging. I never would have dreamed of such a thing years ago, before we had the Internet. I do not like to talk on the phone, but I love email, text messages, taking snapshots, and checking the weather apps.
