WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE

As always, thank you Joyce for our questions. 


 
1. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL? The NFL is back in action along with all the college teams. Are you a fan? Who do you root for? If you're not a fan what do you do while the rest of America watches Saturday, Sunday, Monday night, and now Thursday night games?
No, not my thing except for Super Bowl Sunday. I do what I do everyday, sit in my office, watch movies on premium channels and work on my computer.

2. What's something I'll always find in your closet?
Besides a mess.....ironing board and iron!

3. Share one of your earliest memories.
I think I remember my sister peeing in her pants by the front door when she couldn't get the door open and our mom didn't hear us. This would have been before kindergarten.

4. What circus act best describes your week so far?
Well I think it would be a car full of clowns. Explanation to come at another time!

5. What's a food you disliked as a child but you love now?
Mushrooms for sure. I wouldn't touch them at all but I loved collecting items with mushrooms on them when I was a young adult. (Mugs, pictures, nik naks)  I love the form of a mushroom, especially the red dotted ones. Very Bohemian to me!


6. Describe your summer in three words.
Busy Beautiful Blessing

7. Where were you on September 11, 2001? Will you do anything special to mark the day this year?
I had just come home from taking Mark to the airport. It was 6:30 am in California. Normally I would go back to bed but I came in and turned on the TV. OMG.... I could not believe what I was watching. I actually called my aunts house and woke them up. My dad was in town visiting with them. I knew they had to see what was happening. I also woke up the kids. Then Mark called to see if I knew what was going on, they were sitting on the runway not taking off but were not given any information. I had to go back and pick him up. As you know most air traffic was cancelled that day. Also it was bowling that day and it was a solemn day but I felt comfort through by bowling friends. Actually I did do something last night that is worth talking about in another post but it didn't come about because of 9-11 but just because of timing. It too will remain in my heart for coming years.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I am extremely busy the rest of this week with a few family obligations so if you don't see me visiting your posts I do promise to be around when I can. This is the reason some of my answers are so vague but rest assured that all is wonderful. By the way, some family members are in the air today and prayers for their safety would be appreciated. Enjoy the rest of your week. ((HUGS))

My mother-in-law was sitting on the tarmac in Myrtle Beach waitng to fly up to Newark, so she could stay with our children while hubby & I went on a business trip. No need to say, she never flew that day - and we did not go off on our trip either.

Cathy said...

Have fun this week with all you have going on.

April said...

I eat mushrooms like they're going out of style...love them sauteed with a pat of butter! Hope your week goes well...busy as it may be!

Kristie said...

There are a bunch of things that I never cared for as a kid that I like now...almost everything except Sauerkraut-I still can't manage to eat that!

Joyce said...

Does your sister read your blog? : ) Safe travels to the family...sounds like you have a busy week!

Theresa said...

How scary to have been on a plane that day!
Enjoy your week :)

A car full of clowns? Now there has to be a good blog post to go along with that! Have a great week :)

Miss Debbie said...

I'm with you...not much of a football fan either...not even the super bowl! Hope you enjoy your family visit!

Nani said...

Looking forward to reading about the clown car week! Sending a prayer for your traveling family members and all travelers.

Deb said...

Unknown Mami said...

That is one funky mushroom!

nancygrayce said...

I've been getting those anonymous comments too .......makes me glad I have comment moderation!

It would be three rings from the circus around here. Trying to juggle everyone's stuff and my own too!

Renegades said...

I love fall high school football evenings.

Laura said...

Saying prayers! I remember your 9-11 story (as I started to read it it triggered my memory... yeah! I have a memory!!!) ;-)
I feel the same about mushrooms (and onions and peppers) can't get enough now!

STILLMAGNOLIA said...

I have sent you an award. I hope you will visit me and claim it. I will understand if you don't....I just loved what this one was.

I think I would have to say Juggler for #4. This week I wore my Secretary hat for two meetings and tonight I put on my President one.

Thanks for visiting.

Stopping in to say hi! I'm your newest follower sent by Sandie at Chatty Crone. Hope the rest of your week goes beautifully! Broccoli, I hated broccoli, then when I was pregnant the first time I found I liked it. Weird. Ann

Chatty Crone said...

I hope you get to meet The Boston Lady - she just moved out there and I think you live near her.

I don't like Brussel sprouts and I still don't.

Or football.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

I am not a football fan, but I will take part in Super Bowl festivities ... more for the snacks and the commercials. I've never seen a red dotted mushroom in real life. I thought they were only in cartoons. ha!
