1. What kind of thinker are you-doer concrete thinking) analyst (analytical and abstract thinking), orator (logical thinking) inventor (imaginative thinking) or original thinker (creative)? What makes you say so? You can try this little quiz (link here) to help with your answer. 

Here is how much you scored for every type:

Doer: 13%
Analyst: 38%
Orator: 25%
Inventor: 88%
Original Thinker: 38%

2. Do you own a crock pot, air fryer, and/or instapot? Do you leave said small appliance sitting out? How often do you use it/them? Favorite thing to make in one of these? 

Yes we have a crock pot. No, small appliances are in a cabinet. The only thing out is our coffee maker. We do not use our crock pot very often. I usually make chili in the crock pot. 

3. What's something you hold a strong opinion on that matters not at all in the grand scheme of things? 

I'm drawing a blank here. 

4. Describe the view from your window. 

From our sliding doors and windows in the family room we have a beautiful view and also from our bedroom sliding glass doors. There is a lot more patio from the house that this photos doesn't show. We actually have a patio along the back of the house and then stepping stones to three other patios. This is the one at the back of the yard. 


5. Do you have a favorite brand? Explain.

I have several favorite brands. I like Seventh Generation dish soap. I like a Ever Spring laundry detergent. I like Trader Joe's potato chips. I like Fage Yogurt. We like Tillamook Cheese slices. We like Daisy brand sour cream. We like La Tortilla factory light flour Tortillas. I like Frigo Cheese Heads String Cheese. We like Irish Spring soap and also Charmin Ultra Soft Toilet paper. I guess I could go on and on.

6. Insert your own random thought here.  

Adam had a lovely birthday party for Gabby on Saturday evening. There were about 25 people. He made two lasagnas, garlic bread, salads and ordered some pizzas for the younger people in the crowd and had some great desserts too!


We had his lasagna a few weeks ago and it is the best I've ever had and those are the compliments he was getting on Saturday night. I will try to share it with you when I can.

1. What does love mean to you? 

I'm going with the Urban Dictionary:

"The act of caring and giving to someone else. Having someone's best interest and wellbeing as a priority in your life. To truly love is a very selfless act."

2. Is love blind? 

I do believe it can be in some situations. 

3. How do you remember Valentine's Day as a kid? Do you have any special plans for the day this year?

I believe I remember decorating shoe boxes to hold the cards from my schoolmates. 

No special plans. I have bowling today and shopping afterwards. Maybe we will order in some food. It has never been a good day to go out to eat because it is so crowded everywhere. 

4 Are you a fan of the movie genre known as 'rom-com'? What's your favorite (or one of your favorites)?

Yes!!! It is so hard for me to come up with a favorite. I'm going to name a few older ones like "When Harry Met Sally", "You've Got Mail", "Sleepless in Seattle" and "While You Were Sleeping."

5. What's something you recently put your heart into? 

I'm going to go with the downsizing of my Christmas decorations. It was not easy on my heart. 

6. Insert your own random thought here.  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GABBY!
WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH
LOVE, MOM AND DAD

We will see Gabby on Saturday!
(This was from Adam's 45th celebration in January)
