Thank you Joyce

1. What's something that makes you feel stressed? How do you cope?

These days I think that everything stresses me out and that is why I'm going to have what's called "Test to see how you think" by a Psychiatrist. I think during the pandemic I was coping with wine. I stopped drinking about 9 weeks ago.

2. What's a food you eat that evokes a memory? Explain. 

I'm going to say potato salad because it always reminds me of the lovely family picnics I went to as a child with our Presbyterian Church. I do have a photo but couldn't find it last night. 

3. This week's Hodgepodge lands on National Visit Your Relatives Day. Will you celebrate by visiting a relative? If so is travel involved? Geographically, who is your nearest relative (not counting those living in your own house)?

No, I will not be visiting a relative today. I will be visiting James tomorrow and him, along with his parents, are the only relatives is California. 

4. What's your most frequently used emoji? Do you make more phone calls, send more emails, or mainly text to communicate with friends and family? 

Face blowing a kiss is used most frequently and a text message or email is used most often with family and friends. 


5. Tell us the story behind a favorite piece of furniture. 

I have several favorite pieces of furniture. I don't have time to find all of the pictures right now. I have a hutch that is in our family room that belonged to my grandparents on my mother's side. 

We have a beautiful carved dining room set that belonged to Mark's grandparents. 

I have a Singer sewing machine which my grandfather, on my mother's side, used for tailoring. 

Then I also have my grandmother's wooden ironing board on my mother's side. I love all of them!!! 

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Happy Birthday to my daughter Amber who turns 41 today!  Here she is in several photos with her husband Dylan who is her best friend and he loves her to pieces.....

Amber, Dad and I love you so much. ❤
I hope you have a beautiful day.
Wish we could celebrate with you.
Love,
Mom and Dad

I'm sorry I wasn't able to search for all the photos I would have loved to share here today. I was in the ER yesterday for 8 hours. I was having pain in my lower back, shoulders and neck for several days. When I woke up yesterday morning I decided that I just couldn't do another day of pain. 

I'm okay, I got a shot for the pain and some pain pills to take if needed. I will be seeing my primary doctor on Friday morning. All of my blood work was excellent which made me so happy. Everything in normal range. They just saw some slight disc space narrowing in my back which is common for my age. They said it might be some Myalgia.

TUESDAY 4

A Variety of Questions for You


Welcome  to Toni Taddeo's Tuesday 4 and thank you so much for joining in!

Let's do a variety of questions this week, okay?

1. Did you have a favorite cartoon program or character as a young person, or even today?

I know that I loved watching Captain Kangaroo and Bozo the Clown. 

2.  Can you whole heartedly give people a second chance or  do you find yourself still worried about trusting them?

I gave my husband a second chance so I guess my answer is "yes!"

3.  Are there things/activities you'd like to add to your life or do you feel you do enough to do, ,going on etc. to keep you satisfied?

Honestly, I would love to add more activities to my life. I just need my body to cooperate. 

4.  Can you live without your phone, TV, social media? 

I would like to give it a try. They did some studies recently and the articles are pretty interesting for social media. HERE and HERE  I might be able to live without TV but I wouldn't want to. I think an extra phone is nice to have for emergencies. 

Thank you Annie.
