It’s time to join my blog friend, Joyce, for a little mid-week “Hodgepodge”. Apparently, her button has taken a little vacation this week! No problem, just click her name, and it will take you where you need to go, if you’d like to join in and play along! Here are this week’s questions:
1. Would you rather talk to everyone at a crowded party for a short time or have a significant conversation with two people? Since I’m painfully shy, I’d rather talk with just two people for a significant time. I’d actually rather just skip the party…
2. What objects do you remember from your parent’s living room? When I was growing up, my parents had a sectional couch. That couch never stayed together, but kept sliding apart. I remember how aggravating that couch always was. They also had a clock that I loved very much. They had it for as long as I can remember.
It had a ballerina on one side of it, that twirled around while music played. There was also a painting of three ladies that I liked a lot. When my parents passed away, I inherited the clock and the painting. The sectional couch was long gone by then! By the way, my parents never lived in a house with an actual “formal” living room.
3. Do you hog the bed? Steal the covers? Snore? Yes, Yes, Yes! It’s sad but true, I’m guilty of all of these things. Aren’t we all, at one time or another?
4. Speaking of Easter dinner….what is your favorite way to cook/eat lamb? Or does just the thought of that make you squeamish? If you’re not cooking lamb what will be your entree du jour on Easter Sunday? The thought of cooking or eating lamb makes me squeamish, but I don’t know why. Probably, because I’ve never had it. I’ll be baking a ham for Easter Sunday. I can imagine the look on my family’s faces if I told them I was serving lamb!!! I’d probably be eating alone.
5. Let’s throw some politics into this week’s mix-oooohhh…Do you know the whereabouts of your birth certificate and when was the last time you had to produce it to prove you’re you? Yes, I do know where my birth certificate is! I’ve had it in our fire-proof safe for years. It’s been so long since I needed it for anything, I can’t remember when that was!
6. As a child, how did people describe you? Quiet and shy.
7. What do you complain about the most? Politicians (I’m disgusted with the entire bunch in Washington), the economy (been to the pump or grocery store lately, or tried to find a job?) , and healthcare.
Random thought: I feel really bad for young couples trying to start their lives these days. Good jobs are scarce, and everything is SO expensive! I worry about our children having to raise our grandchildren in such an unGodly world. I also wonder what will become of my husband and me when we (soon) reach retirement age. We’ve paid social security taxes all of our lives, and now there is no money!!??
Oh my, this is way too much gloom and doom…Let me end this post with a happy song and video 🙂
