About Me On Monday…

Acting Balanced

Today would have been a perfect day to sleep in…  It’s cloudy and wet outside, but I don’t care because it’s time to join Heather for her fun Monday meme again!  Here we go…

1. Where do you go to get your news?

Sometimes I’ll read the headlines on Yahoo, and if something catches my eye, I”ll click, and read the story.  However, most of the time I get the news from watching television, and reading our local newspaper.

2. What Olympic level skill do you have (e.g. One could be a world-class paper clip bender)?

Ha! Ha!  Without a doubt, my answer would have to be “wasting time on the computer”!

3. If I say the word, ‘intellectual,’ what do you think?

For some reason, it makes me think about high school valedictorians.

4. Who in your family do you look the most like?

When I was younger, I always thought I looked more like my daddy, but these days whenever I look in a mirror I see my mother’s reflection staring back at me!

My question for you is…

5.  Can you remember who the valedictorian of your graduating (high school) class was?

(Our valedictorian’s name was Richard B.  Hey, it’s only been 40 years 🙂 

Weekend Recap:

On Friday, I went to spend the day with my friend, Diane.  We had a great time getting caught up with each other, and she took me to  The Cracker Barrel, my favorite eating place, for lunch.  I always enjoy the time we spend together.  It’s sort of funny, we’re both retired now, but sometimes we have a hard time getting our schedules to match so we can spend time together!   It took us a month to coordinate Friday’s visit!

I returned home, late Friday afternoon, to find Ed up on the roof of our house, and I found myself thinking…oh, why didn’t I stay a little bit longer?  (I absolutely hate for Ed to get up on the roof!)  You may be wondering why Ed was up on our roof.  Well, it’s because on Thursday I discovered a leak!  Yep, I put my book on top of our entertainment center, and later, when I retrieved it, I discovered my book was slightly damp!  I couldn’t see any signs of water, or water damage, but upon closer inspection we discovered a little bit of water slowly dripping through a nail hole in the ceiling…Hopefully, that problem has now been repaired–and without incident, thank goodness!

The rest of our weekend was slow–which is sometimes good.  It was spent doing things around the house, and just relaxing.  Ed mowed a lot of grass with his tractor,  while I cleaned out the chicken coop, and “wasted a lot of time on the computer” 🙂  Grilled steaks on Saturday evening, with naps on both days…  I’m already looking forward to the next slow weekend!
