The ABC's of Me

I saw this on another blog a few weeks ago and I so enjoyed it that I thought you might enjoy my answers to these questions as well.

A- Age: 67,until July 29th 
B- Bed size: King - the first purchase we made after we married and financed it for 2 years and we've never looked back.  We've owned several king mattress since then and for us, it's king or nothing!
C- Chore you hate:Well, hate is a strong word, but highly dislike dusting. Goodness, it's a never ending job and seems to accumulate so quickly.
D- Dog’s name:No dogs. Our last dogs were labs and their names were Rosco and Rhett.
E- Essential start your day item: Coffee and devotional time
F- Favorite color: Gray blue
G- Gold or silver: Both??  Well, my mind went immediately to jewelry but I suppose it could be a whole lot of items.  It would depend on where it's located, what I'm wearing  and so forth.  I use a lot of antique gold in my home decor but I wear a lot of sterling silver jewelry.
H- Height: 5'6"
I- Instruments you play: I use to play the piano but it's been such a long time since I've played that I'm not sure if I still can.
J- Job title- Domestic engineer, getting close to retirement ~chuckle~
K- Kid(s)- Son (42), daughter (40)
L- Living arrangements: Home with my husband of almost 49 years
M- Mom’s name: My Mom's name was Geraldine but she was always called Gerry.
N- Nicknames: No nicknames for me that I know of. 
O- Overnight hospital stay(s): Birth of both children and thankfully we didn't do "drive thru births" back in that day.  I stayed 5 nights with both of my babies after a normal delivery.  I can't imagine how these girls today have a baby one day and go home the next. ~insane~ I had a hysterectomy in 1987 and that's the extent of my hospital stays.
P- Pet peeve: Not doing what you say you will do or not showing up when you say you will. ~don't even get me started~
Q- Quote from a movie: Scarlett O'Hara, "After all, tommorrow is another day."
From Gone With The Wind. 
R- Right or left handed: Right
S- Siblings: 2 brothers, 1, 3 years younger and 1,12 years younger.
T- Time you wake up: Usually around 5:30 a.m. I've always gotten up early. I love the early morning.
U- Underwear: Well, my goodness, let's get personal.  Just so you know, I ALWAYS wear it and I'll leave it at that.  ~chuckle~
V- Vegetable you dislike: Well, can't think of any but surely there is one or two that I don't care for.  I could live off of veggies!
W- Ways you run late: Anything out of my control, car trouble, traffic jam, or accident to name a few.  I pride myself on being on time but life can always throw things outside of your control.
X- X-Rays you’ve had: shoulder and back
Y- Yummy food you make: Almond Pound Cake - my family absolutely loves this cake and pretty much expects one to be sitting on the cabinet often.
Z- Zoo favorite: hummm.......not sure I have a favorite.

And, now you know even more than you did about me.~smile~  I hope that each of you are enjoying coming out somewhat from isolation and gradually working your way to a new "normal."  I am happy to report that I was able to get my nails and feet done AND my hair.  I feel like a new woman for sure.  Now, if the senior living facilities within our state will allow us to go inside the facilities sooner than later, I'll really be happy.  

Abundant blessings!

  1. I enjoyed your answers Lea. But I was caught off guard with you being 5'6. Girl, You taller than I thought. But everyone is taller than me it seems. LOL! Yes, me too on the coffee and devo. Gotta have both! And King size for me too! Can't imagine being any different. The grand girls love Nana and Papa's bed. LOL! Hope you have a good rest of the week. Hugs and blessings, Cindy.

  2. I enjoyed your post. My mom's name was also Geraldine. As a kid they called her Gerry, but as an adult she was mostly known as Deana.

  3. That was a fun exercise!! Perhaps you should share that almond pound cake recipe with us!!

  4. I enjoyed reading your list. I also liked your quote, GWTW is one of my favorite movies and I read the book 7 times. Your almond pound cake sounds great!

  5. I love that GWTW quote too, it's SO true:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  6. Lea, I enjoyed your ABC's. We have similar answers, except you are taller, younger, and I even get up earlier than you! We have been married the same number of years. I have one sister and my daughter is the oldest at 43 and son 40.
    We have never had a dog but our daughter and family have had a dog for two years now and I never dreamed I would love a dog.
    Have a great weekend.

  7. I love posts like this that help us to get to know the person better. I hope you won't mind but I think I will "borrow" isolation brain has had trouble coming up with something to write about!!! The more I know about you the more I wish you were my next-door-neighbor:)

  8. Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email or Call/WhatsApp +2347012841542


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!
