In the words of my husband…”another weekend is shot in the butt.” He has a way with words, don’t you think? Of course, he’s right, another weekend is gone–which means it’s time for “Meet Me On Monday”! Here are Java’s questions:
1. What is your favorite yogurt
flavor? I don’t like yogurt–of any flavor!
2. Ankle or knee socks? and on the same theme, white socks or
coloured?? Ankle socks! Speaking of socks, I like “funky-looking” socks. It’s my way of expressing myself 🙂 Whenever I worked, I had socks for every holiday! Among my all-time favorite socks were: my cow socks, my multi-striped toe socks, and my Christmas socks, complete with bells that jingled whenever I walked.
3. How is the weather right now? The weather here is hot and very dry. Our average temps have been in the mid 90’s for over a month, with hardly any rain.
4. Are you a fast typer? NO! In high school, my maximum speed was around 40 words per minute–but I had very few errors 🙂 These days, I figure my typing speed is probably half of what it used to be–my speed in everything else is that way, too!
5. Red or White Wine? Neither one. I don’t drink any alcoholic beverages (too many folks in my family were alcoholics).
To sum it up: I’m a slow typist, living in a hot and dry place, who wears funky ankle socks, but doesn’t eat yogurt or drink wine!
It was a slow, uneventful, weekend around our house. Hubby officially finished painting our new porch, and it looks so nice and clean…too bad it won’t stay that way! Every morning, there are no less than six cats sitting on it–waiting for their breakfast!
This weekend, I also finished painting the little terrace on the other side of the house. I can’t really call it a porch, because there is no way to exit or enter it except from outside. It’s just a little area to sit on, outside of the bedroom, to enjoy watching the birds at the feeder. It’s also where my favorite cat “Bobs” spends most of her time, sleeping in a chair.
You know, the bad part about painting is–one job leads to another. When one area is painted, it makes the area next to it look bad–then you feel like you need to paint that, too. It’s like a song with no end…
The grills around here were working over-time this weekend. Our daughter’s family grilled ribs at their house, while we grilled chicken at our house(our yards join). We even grilled a few hotdogs on Sunday for lunch.
We also managed to have some good “family time”, visiting with our children and their families. We ate watermelon, outside on the porch, about 9 pm on Friday night! I don’t recommend doing this, especially if you want an uninterrupted night’s sleep! Some of the family gathered again, outside around the fire pit, on Saturday evening.
Last night when my husband went out to feed the goldfish, he found one of my favorite fish dead and floating in the pond. I bought the fish at Wal-mart, many years ago, when it was tiny. As you can see, he grew–a lot! I’m not sure, but I think he was the last fan tail left in the pond. I sure hated to lose him. I don’t know if he died of old age, or from the heat. High temperatures are tough on goldfish–and we’ve certainly been having our share of those! In fact, come to think of it, high temperatures are tough on me, too. Thank goodness for A/C! Have a great week everyone…
