This week is the first time that I’ve woken up in the morning and felt that there was a bit of crispness in the air. Fall is coming, people! It may get up to over 90 degrees during the day, but the nights? Well, the nights are glorious. To celebrate, here is a bit of a fall social!
This Weeks Questions:
1. What is your favorite fall activity?
Oddly enough, pretty dang similar to one of my favorite summer activities. Sitting in the hammock reading a book. Only add an afghan and subtract a multitude of mosquitoes. Continue reading
1. What’s something you’re never too young or too old to enjoy?
Fireworks. Ice Cream. A fresh box of crayons. Reveling in dessert because I cleaned my plate at dinner
It’s really hard to type blog posts on a train with spotty wifi connections. I’m just sayin’. Not to mention that I thought it was six things from each color last week–so six red, six orange, etc. And trying to type that on a spotty wifi connection and rickety railroad tracks was not going my way. So I gave up. Too much of a headache to try to keep up. But this week I love the topic! We’re down to five things:
For some reason, even though I know the calendar says otherwise, I don’t feel like we’ve reached the end of the summer. Maybe it’s because I don’t have kids and am not gearing up for school? Maybe it’s because every day in summer has been just like every day in spring? At a certain point, the days all flow together, you know . . . .
Regardless, today’s Listicle is about saying farewell to summer. So I bring you:
10 THINGS I WILL REMEMBER THIS SUMMER BY
- Turning 40 and gaining a niece on the same day. Continue reading
I have started to answer the Sunday social I can’t tell you how many times–and I’ve not finished. Either I lost wifi on the train, or I was working insane hours, or life just got in the way. But I”m determined to try and keep up now!
Next Weeks Questions:
1. What was your favorite trip/vacation/activity this summer?
This summer was a blur of work and commitments. VBS was awesome, but I’m going to cheat and go back to my birthday-and the birth day of my latest niece.
2. What was your favorite outfit look/clothing item of the summer?
Once we get to about 85 degrees outside, I switch from black pants everyday to a maxi skirt every day.
3. What is one thing you wish you’d gotten to do this summer?
This is the first year in I can’t remember how long that didn’t include a trip to a local theme park. But I’m still a beach girl–I miss the waves and the sand.
4. What was your favorite song of the summer?
I got hooked on Kevin Max with Audio Adrenaline singing Kings and Queens.
5. What was your favorite movie/tv show of the summer?
It barely counts as summer, but for movie it would be star Trek: Into Darkness. TV Show? I have a harder time with that one because I love Summer TV: Royal Pains, Covert Affairs, Suits, and NEWSROOM!!!!!
You know, this time last week I thought I was going to be able to stay on track and keep up with link parties this week, especially since that’s the only blogging I’ve done for a few weeks. Yet here we are, Sunday at 1115pm, and this is the first chance I’ve had to sit and blog since. So, so much for staying on track. Regardless, here’s this week’s entry:
1. What do you miss most about being a kid? Continue reading
I haven’t participated in any of my link parties lately. As so often happens, life got in the way. I know this isn’t really the place to post, but it’s the post that I’m writing today, so it’s where this is going to go. But I have really not been feeling stellar the last few weeks. You know, in a mental sort of way. Continue reading
Every few years or so, you get the “if you were on a deserted island . . .” question going through a rotation. That’s what this week’s Sunday Social reminded me of. If you had to pick your favorites, and just your favorites, what would they be?
1. What are 3 items you can’t live without on a daily basis (water, food, shelter, and clothes don’t count) Continue reading
You know, honestly? I don’t know that I’d remember to blog regularly if it weren’t for my linkups. There are things I want to remember, and things I want to say, but I’m usually too tired to think out how to word it. I need to do better with that, and try to have non-linkup postings, but for now, it works!
1. Share one way you think the world has changed for the better since you were a kid?
2. How ’bout one way it’s changed for the worse?
I’m going to answer these two together. But before I do, here is a disclaimer ****I am in no way trying to start a political or theoretical discussion/argument with this answer. I’m simply stating facts, and am not even giving my own personal standing on this topic at this time. Any soapbox comments are subject to deletion**** Continue reading
This is my third round with the hosts of Tuesday Topics, and I have to say it’s been a blast. Here we go, starting anew at week ten!
- Sleep. I know that sounds silly, but lately, it’s something sorely lacking in my life. And it can never be taken for granted, nor can it ever be too much! Continue reading
I know it’s Sunday, but somehow napping seemed more important this afternoon and then it was time to leave for Sunday dinner. So here’s this week’s linkup!
This Weeks Questions:
1. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Continue reading
(I couldn’t think of a themed title for this week!)
1. July 24th is Amelia Earhart Day. Continue reading
So time for a full confession. This is the second week in a row that I have put my post together and spent all day trying to figure out why Lauren over at http://www.lifelovelauren.com hadn’t put up the link post. It’s usually around 5pm when I figured it out.
It was Sunday. This is a post done every Tuesday.
The sharpest knife in the drawer, I am not lately.
Anywho, this is the last week of this week’s round of topics!
Ten points if you can name where that quote came from. I don’t know why I remember it, but I do.
Okay, full confession time. I haven’t participated in the Monday Listicles for awhile because honestly, they didn’t appeal to me. Example: 10 Things That Make My Family Awesome. Um, it’s just me and the dog. Short list. 10 Things About Summer. My answer would have been something along the lines of 1. I dislike it immensely. 2. It’s not October. That’s about it. 10 Things and I were not getting along, so I took a break. But I’m looking forward to this week’s topic–and was instantly reminded of this clip (and a later scene from this same episode is also where the post title comes from!)
10 Things I Buy Every Week
- Milk. Skim Milk. At least once a week, sometimes twice. Continue reading
I can’t believe I even remembered it was Sunday Social time, I’m so tired. Welcome to VBS week, y’all!
