Thank you Joyce.....

1. As August draws to a close, share what's been your favorite weekend of the entire summer?
That's not fair, I have had several favorite weekends this summer. I had a few weekends with my family in Florida in June which were awesome. 

Had a fun time with Adam in Mammoth Lakes in July. We had a fun weekend with Adam & Tristen a few weeks ago at the Getty Villa. Most recent favorite weekend would be this last one at the Princess Diana Exhibit on the Queen Mary and having a Windsor Tea with Mark in the Tea Room on the Queen Mary! 

2. Labor Day is marked in the US of A on Monday, September 1st.  What paying job have you held that you've loved the most? Liked the least?
My list of jobs is a small one. I've always taken pride in the fact that I've worked for companies that people know like the Regional Office in Oak Brook, IL for Hormel. The main office for Ace Hardware where I worked on new store set ups. I don't have a least favorite but I did enjoy my 7 years at Pam's Hallmark store in Fontana, CA. 

3. Does the new school year start before or after Labor Day where you live? When do you think it should begin? There is much discussion now about older students having later start times to their school day...your thoughts?
I know that the schools have already started around here, some actually started a few weeks ago. I think it is crazy. School should start after summer's end which to me is the Tuesday after Labor Day! 

4. What's something you've worked at recently that could be deemed a 'labor of love'?
I'm working on a book of pictures of us at family gatherings like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and Birthday's to give to Adam & Tristen when they move away. So when they miss us they can just look at us in the book! 

5.Which of the following work idioms can you most relate to right now...'A woman's work is never done.', 'All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.' 'Many hands make light work.'
A woman's work is never done......

6. Crab or lobster or thanks, but no thanks? Favorite way to have your choice prepared?
I am going to say lobster but don't know much about how it's prepared. 

7. Albert Einstein is quoted as saying, 'Three rules of work: Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.' Which of the three do you consider to be the most important? Share one of your own 'rules of work'.
I don't have any rules of work right now. I kinda get things done under pressure. What I can say is that I really want to find simplicity! It is where and how I want to live the rest of my life so it is most important to me right now. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Hopefully I will get some posts together from our Getty Villa visit from two weeks ago and the Queen Mary visit last weekend. I started feeling ill on Friday, very tight chest and pain when breathing. No way I was going to miss my Queen Mary/Diana Exhibit/Tea experience! 

If you follow me on Facebook you probably saw that I went to the doctor yesterday.......

Eight weeks of a very high dose of steroids, lowering it each week as we go along. Antibiotic if needed, only if I start to cough up phlegm and of course bed rest. I'm really down about it. Taking steroids and weight loss do not go together well and I have a class reunion coming up next months.
