This week’s Friday’s Feast
Using only one word, how does grocery shopping make you feel?
What is your favorite part about the season of Autumn?
All of it! The cooler temps, the leaves changing and falling, playing in the leaves, putting out my fall decor, the smells, the colors, crunchy caramel apple pie, pumpkin bread, trips to Gentry’s Farm, carving pumpkins, picking out Halloween costumes, Parade of Bible characters at church, Halloween & Trunk or Treat. I heart Autumn!!!
Have you ever had any bad experiences online?
Name three things that make you happy daily.
DB, JBelle & The GMan
What one household cleansing or organizing item would you not want to be without?
What is this cleansing and organizing you speak of? Okay, I’ll try – cleansing: washing machine; organizing: computer
Who is the easiest person for you to talk to?
If you could live in any ancient city during the height of the quality of its society and culture, which one would you choose?
Montmartre (I know, it’s not exactly ancient, but I’m a closet bohemian.)
What is the most exciting event you’ve ever witnessed?
This is terribly “mom-cliché” but I have to say the births of both my kids. I mean, what’s more exciting than knowing you’re having a baby that day? And hearing, “It’s a girl!” the first time then, “It’s a boy!” the second time was absolutely thrilling! And I know I “experienced” it more than “witnessed” it but believe me, being doped up on an epidural and having a baby extracted from you (C-sections both times), is sort of a witnessing kind of experience.
If you were a celebrity, what would you do for a publicity stunt?
What do mean “if”? No publicity stunts here, my stardom stands on its own.
What do you consider the ideal age to have a first child?
Older than 18, younger than 60. Twenty-six worked for me.
I’m in a bit of a writing rut. Putting those last two posts together kind of wiped me out. Last Friday, I was perusing the Internets and saw this fun little meme of sorts on another blog. Since it’s a food theme, (well, sort of) it’s right up my alley. And it gives me something to write about other than my kids, my husband and my crazy ideas. So here is my first edition of Friday’s Feast.
Say there’s a book written about your life. Who would you want to narrate the audio version?
To date, I’ve lived the majority of my life in southern states, yet I don’t boast a typical southern accent. It would have to be someone from the South but who doesn’t really sound like a Southerner. Julia Roberts comes to mind. She’s from Georgia and she can bust out a twang now and again but for the most part, her accent is fairly neutral. Or maybe Sandra Bullock. Hmmm…..I’m definitely going with Sandra Bullock because I love the way she narrates the story in the movie While You Were Sleeping (one of my all time faves!)
Take the letters from your favorite kind of nut and write a sentence. (Example: Perhaps every avenue needs understanding today.)
Can ants send home entomological warnings?
If you could go back in time and spend one week in another decade, which decade would you choose?
The 1940s. I think it would be fascinating to view the world during the decade my grandparents were married and my parents were born. It would definitely bring a new perspective to my life.
Name a song that brings back memories for you.
A song? Just one? Sheesh. Def Leppard – Hysteria*. What memories does it bring back? Well that’s just for me to know and you not to know!
Do you prefer to wash your hands in cold water or warm water?
Warm water, actually I prefer it as hot as I can stand it.
*DB and I found something very funny while I was searching for Def Leppard music. (I can’t believe we don’t have any in the house!!) Look for his post about our hysterical discovery!
