The Mind Wonders...part 1

1. Did you ever wonder why in all the Disney Classic movies, why the women were always going around singing to the animals?
2. Did you ever wonder why when it rains we tend to run for cover but if there is a sprinkler out on the lawn we want to run through it?
3. Did you ever wonder why we pass around "gifts" on Facebook, when all we really are getting is a picture for like 2 seconds?
4. Did you ever wonder why the sky is blue?
5. Did you ever wonder why it takes us 2-4 hours to cook dinner and 20 minutes to eat it?
6. Did you ever wonder why blonds really have more fun?
7. Did you ever wonder why animals turn around three times before sitting down?
8. Did you ever wonder why in those fancy restaurants it cost $40 for a small plate of salad but at a smaller, less well known restaurant, that it comes with your meal...that cost $10 for the whole meal?
9. Did you ever wonder why we drive our cars down one block to get ice cream?
10. Did you ever wonder who thinks up thi…

10 Thoughts Tuesday...on Wed.

1. Hello my friend and fellow followers. I reserved my thoughts until today (Wed.)  I will explain as I go along here. I can say this, I am glad I did because there are a lot of happenings today.

2. The main reason I waited until today to grace you with my thoughts *grins* is because today is the last day for my aunt to have chemo. It is a celebration for her today and as many of you have been following my thoughts about her, I wanted to share the celebration with you too!  If you have not seen the video Tamirisc and I made, check it out below.

3. I also thought you would like to see a photo taken of her ringing that bell. (Note this is not my photo since I could not be there.)

4. Sooooo for other things happening...summer college from hell continued on in to this week.  I don't know if I told you or not but the paper I had written for Baseball History was not accepted by the professor.  He told me that I had to revamp it and the kicker being that it had to be in by tomorrow becaus…

1. Do you watch any Soap Operas?I used to watch Days of Our Lives back when I was in high school and early college. It was kind of a family soap to watch. Now I could care less.

2. What appliance is used the most in your house?That would have to be the microwave, stove and coffee pot. I cook practically every night so my stove gets used a lot. As my hubby likes his morning coffee he uses that most. The microwave we use for everything!(If only my appliances actually looked like these!)
3. Do you wear make-up every day?Actually no. I …

I got blamed!

My lovely daughter pictured above, recently and publicly blamed me for an addiction she has. (Mothers tend to get blamed for everything you know.) So, what is it you ask? Well, she has an addiction to school supplies! Yes, you heard me right, school supplies. I suppose this time she was right to blame me.

You see, every year at this time the stores come out with all the wonderful new colors, gadgets and things for school. It is like the mecca of school loveliness for her and I. We are drawn to them in a craving like no other.

The truth of the matter is both of us could blame my Mother. Yep, we could.  Back in the days of my elementary schooling, my mom took my brothers and I school shopping before the beginning of each school year. She would make it so exciting for us as we got new school clothes, new notebooks, new backpack, pencils, glue and whatever we needed. It was enjoyable to see what new thing had come out for the new year.
Of course this excitement for school carried over in…

10 Thoughts Tuesday...the late evening addition

1. I missed my 10 thoughts last week due to being on vacation. Did you miss me? Yeah, I thought not. sigh...
2. In the last 3 weeks I have had two friends of my family die.
3. I guess it is my age but it is really tough to see old family friends and people I grew up with leave this life.  I know dying is apart of life but sometimes it really is hard to swallow.
4. For other things, an update on my aunt. She is finishing her chemo (finally) on August 11th. I am really glad to report that but still after all this time, she is scheduled to have a double mastectomy in the first part of September. It seems that it was a little nuts for her to have gone through all that and still have this end result. Please continue to keep her in prayer or thought.
5. Just so you know. I think, by the way, she is amazing. In all of this, she has not once complained...really, not once...and she has such a humor about her that it inspires me.  Here is a photo of her:

6. Speaking of people I admire, I will…

Meet Me Monday-August 2, 2010

Well, it is that day of the week were we meet and learn about each other. Yep, it is Meet Me Monday! As always it is hosted by the lovely Java @Never Growing Old. Want to join? Click on the site, add your name and answer these few questions!

1. What is your favorite holiday?
Hands down, I love the Christmas holiday season. I do not think there is anything I do not like about it. For me, it has always been a time of renewal and a time to spend with family. I do have to say, as I have gotten older the time with family is even more precious to me, especially now that I do not live close to them.
This year will be our Grand-baby's 1st Christmas so that will be special and spoil her rotten. lol

2. What color clothing do you wear the most?

In truth, I wear a lot of red. It is often my power color. (If you notice in the photo above, I am wearing red)

Here too!
