Well I am really behind today. As my regular readers might know I have had some computer issues. I did get mine back last night, but LOTS of things were un-installed or missing or just not right...sigh...soo frustrating. But I "think" I've got most of them back, so we will see. Soo it's time for the Hodgepodge. lol Join the others by clicking on the pic...
1. What color is prominent in your home? Are you glad about that or wishing you could cover it up or remove it? All of our walls and floors are in a neutral shade of taupe, or tan. All of the colors we decorated with are golds, burgundy's and olive green, and oh some navy as well. Honestly I still really like most of the colors. And I've run the theme of them through the whole house so to change it would be too expensive. If I could do anything, I might paint the walls a very pale olive green, but that's about it.
|THIS IS THE COLOR THEME PRETTY MUCH THROUGH THE WHOLE HOUSE|
|OUR BEDROOM....GOLD, BURGUNDY AND OLIVE GREEN|
2. What's something you'll NEVER do again? Hmmm let's see. I guess it would depend on rather or not I am looking at it from the stand point of a mistake I'll be sure not to repeat, or something I've grown too old to do. I always overthink these things, lol. I guess I will go with what I am past the age of doing. I'll never ride the waves on a bogie board in the ocean again, lol. It was something I used to LOVE to do. I honestly enjoyed it more then I can possibly describe, and did so whenever I got the chance well into my early 50's. Just swimming in the ocean period. Now I can't even walk in the sand (arthritis in my knees completely keeps me from doing this!) let alone get into the ocean. Now I might replace my knees someday and walk on the beach again, but ride off on a wave? I think those days are gone for good.
3. Tell us a couple of ways you fit the stereotypes associated with your gender, and a couple of ways you don't. Well I think I am your typical woman in the respect that getting married and raising kids was what I wanted to do with my life, and what I did. I think I am your typical grandma too in the respect that my 13 are just everything to me. I love to sew, create and craft as well. I enjoy a good romance either in a movie, a book, or a TV show too, and certainly real life too, wink. I LOVE to get flowers and I LOVE perfume. How I might not be typical is that I enjoy most sports. I LOVE a sports movie right underneath a romantic one. That's all I can think of right now, though there is probably others. I am really pretty much a girly girl.
4. May is Motorcycle Awareness Month. Have you ever owned a motorcycle? Ever ridden a motorcycle? If the opportunity presented itself would you hop on a motorcycle and go for a ride? I have NEVER owned one, nor has my husband, or thankfully any of my kids. I did have a ride once as a little girl if you can believe that. My uncle gave me a short ride on his once. Whatever were they thinking?? lol No helmet either. It was somewhat terrifying, but I pretended to like it. And NO there is no way I'd ever hop on a take a ride these days. Just not me.
5. If someone wanted to understand you, what should they read, watch, and listen to? Hmm this could be a LONG thought process and answer but like I said I am already behind so I am going to go with the quick and easy answer. Someone could watch Little House on the Prairie. LOL And not because I ever lived on a prairie or because I don't use and enjoy modern conveniences, but because I just like the family oriented and Christian values the show portrayed. Ma was always busy baking, cooking, cleaning, or reading her Bible. And raised her kids with grace and wisdom and with a firm foundation based on the Bible. She was always selfless. NOW I don't think this was how I was, lol. (only in my dreams) It was just what inspired me and what I TRIED to copy. These days praise music is playing most of the day, but years ago it was Country. Still enjoy Country music, but just don't turn it on like I used to.
6. Insert your random thought....My mind right now is focused on getting all the materials together that I need to help my grand daughter Lindsey create a toy she needs to have as part of her final in a child development elective class she is taking. It is to be a sensory toy. She had a couple of good ideas so we are running with that. I LOVE things like this. She asked her teacher yesterday if she could use her grandma's embroidery machine for the project and got a thumbs up, so that will make things fun and easy. Letting my grand daughter help operate the machine might take a little more effort, lol. Hopefully we can get it done in a night as it's due next Wednesday.
Hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week! Blessings to you all! Debbie
