Volume 308
Thank you Joyce :)

1. What color is prominent in your home? Are you glad about that or wishing you could cover it up or remove it?

Are you talking walls. Everything except for two rooms we just recently painted are still all the original white that came with the house. 

2. What's something you'll NEVER do again?

I'm drawing a blank on something that I did and wouldn't do again. I do know that I won't be hiking again because of my body but that is something I would love to do again! 

3. Tell us a couple of ways you fit the stereotypes associated with your gender, and a couple of ways you don't.

Well I always wanted to be a wife and mother which is exactly what I did! I found this LIST interesting. I do have a lot of technical skills when it comes to computers and television things like the DVD, DVR, and the late VHS! 

I remember a very very long time ago, probably back in the early seventies when Mark's grandfather was impressed that I could put his barbecue grill together without the instructions which were missing. 

4. May is Motorcycle Awareness Month. Have you ever owned a motorcycle? Ever ridden a motorcycle? If the opportunity presented itself would you hop on a motorcycle and go for a ride?

I have never owned a motorcycle but I have ridden on one when I was younger. I might ride again depending on the situation. 

5. If someone wanted to understand you, what should they read, watch, and listen to?

This is a tough question. All I can say is that there are several facets of Princess Diana's life that I can relate to and the reason I loved her so much. 

6.  Insert your own random thought here.

my walls are white, bob will only allow that. every room is full of burgundy and I am sick of it and want to change, but the money is the problem.. so it stays.
the stereotype is easy, I have not one single stereotype of female me, all mine are male ... I have often said I got my dad's personality and traits... I even don't like someone holding doors for me, rather do it myself... two of these have one answer, I rode a motorcycle once and never will again

My walls have color but I'm ready to go back to white!

There are several orange trees at a nearby park. You can tell someone picks the fruit because the higher branches still have oranges while the bottom ones are bare. Cool you put that grill together by yourself years ago. All our walls are white, so far I like it that way.

I didn't realize how much dust is on walls until I had red ones, they actually need washing periodically....saw the movie: Norman yesterday...didn't pick it and wasn't thrilled but I like Richard Gere so that made it alright.

Did you watch the two hour special on Diana? I have it taped and want to do that. Every room in my house has aqua in it - everywhere. I love that color. And i have never ridden a motorcycle I am with you I will never be able to hike again. Have a good day. I hear it is hot out there. Love, sandie

What a sweet idea for the city trees! I never thought of that and yet, it seems so simple and easy. I've gotten too chicken to do a lot of things over the years and that include riding on a motorcycle. I have some pretty good technical skills too but I doubt I could put a grill together without the instructions. Impressive, girl! :)

LOVE that random thought!

Katie Clooney said...

I love your random thought!!! I never thought of that before. Have a wonderful week.

Joyce said...

I'm impressed with you putting together a grill without instructions too. I am sort of capable that way, but I have an absolute horrible sense of direction (as in driving and where I am in the universe : ) Is that a female stereotype? I adore Princess Catherine. She's fabulous and I feel like Diana would be proud of her sons. They definitely reflect her influence in the way they live.

Ann Thompson said...

I used to have my walls painted different colors and got tired of it and started switching overto all antique white.
I like the idea of streets lined with fruit trees

Suzanne McClendon said...

I love hiking, too. It stinks when our bodies take the fun things away from us.

Princess Diana was a beautiful lady. Its so sad how they treated her, especially Charles.

I agree 100% with your random thought. That is a wonderful idea!

Have a blessed day. :)

I don't have a single color, but most of my walls are variants of yellows and terra cotta-type colors.

Cranberry Morning said...

Written instructions are often so poorly written that we're probably just as well off without them. Good job on the grill. I hadn't thought of the fruit trees, but what a good idea.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

OHHH I love that idea of fruit trees!!

Mara said...

I was on the back of a motorbike once. By the time I got home, I had a wooden bum! Not sure I would do it again. Nothing against it, but a car is quite comfy...
