Does my post title make the old Carpenter’s tune pop into your head? I still enjoy listening to the unique sounds of Karen and Richard Carpenter–even after all these years.
It is a rainy day, and a Monday here. Tropical Storm Debby is supposed to give us a second day of rain, but it’s okay, because we can sure use the moisture here. Ed’s back at work, and the house is quiet and lonely, and my kitchen table is still filled with ripening tomatoes!
I’d like to wish our youngest son, Brad, and his wife, Jennifer, a “Happy Anniversary”! Their anniversary falls exactly a week after mine and Ed’s.
As of today, the couple has been married one year! One year ago today, they were getting ready for their wedding– while today it’s a rainy Monday, and both are back at work after a long weekend get-away to Florida. Best wishes, guys. May your second year together be even better than your first!
I’m joining Heather from “Acting Balanced” for her meme “Monday Quiz About Me”. Here are today’s questions and answers:
1. What was your favorite childhood toy?
Without a doubt, my favorite toys were my Barbie and Skipper dolls. I didn’t get them until I was ten, but I played with them more than any other toys I ever owned. I still have both dolls, along with their original bathing suits. My Barbie and Skipper are 47 years old.
2. Where did you go this weekend?
We didn’t go anywhere this weekend, unless you count a quick trip to the Dollar Store. We had a quiet weekend at home, since it was the weekend after vacation week.
3. When was the last time you shopped for yourself? What did you buy?
I placed an on-line order to Bath and BodyWorks on Friday. I ordered some soaps, some wall flowers, and a candle because they were having a 75% off sale, with an additional ten dollars off of a forty dollar purchase. (Yes, Brad, I ordered some Bath and BodyWorks, too! LOL)
4. Paper, Plastic or Reusable?
I prefer paper, but these days it seems like nobody has paper anymore. I always end up with tons of those little plastic shopping bags, which I use as trash can liners in the bath and bedrooms.
My question for you today is:
5. How do you usually celebrate your wedding anniversary?
