1. What's something you miss about the 1980's? If you're too young to miss the 80's how about the 90's?
Well I had some hard times in the 80's with my mother passing away and my husband leaving me but by the end of the 80's we were back together so that was a good thing. I do miss my children being little but that's what grandchildren are for. When we are right in the middle of raising our children we often miss the little things that make them so awesome. I definitely miss the music. I miss my father's summer home near Antioch, Illinois ~ those were the best of times!!!
2. Do you have a library card? If so, how often do you visit?
No I do not have a library card. I just don't read often enough and I happen to like my own new books when I do read.
3. What's the secret to success?
When I find out I will share it will all of you! Okay, all kidding aside I would say it's having a desire and passion inside of you. I don't think success is about money but about being happy with what you do.
4. This is National Backyard Games week...what's your favorite backyard game?
That would be badminton.
5. If I dropped by today what would I find on your coffee table?
Well I have two coffee tables. On one you would find a square vase with potpourri, two sheep and a woven Christian fish symbol basket. On the other one you will find a basket of special Pine Cones and also our photo album from Chicago October 2010.
6. Do you own a bicycle? When was the last time you rode a bicycle? Is that something you enjoy?
I do not have a bicycle. Haven't ridden one in about 15 years. A bicycle has been on my gift list for a few years now. I really want one and yes it is something I would enjoy.
7. What's your favorite cheese?
Well I do enjoy Brie and next in line would be Muenster.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I forgot to tell you that a week ago Tuesday I had a wonderful dinner out. It was my first time having Tapas. We went to Sevilla in Riverside and it was wonderful. Phil who is from the UK and works with Mark in the office had his sister Sue visiting him. It was so nice to meet her. It was a very enjoyable evening but I have to admit that I missed a lot of words. I've learned to understand Phil pretty well but his sisters accent is stronger than his. I do love listening to them talk.
My bowling season ended yesterday which means I now have to actually push myself out of the house to do some shopping each week. I guess maybe if I continue to go to see a movie at the $5. Tuesday's I could do my errands afterwards. The show is right by a Trader Joe's so that may be my new Tuesday for the summer. It's also near a newer Target and Amber's Hallmark store so I can stop in to visit with her. So those are some win, win things to look forward to.
