I’m joining the fun this week….
Sitting on the porch and answering random questions about everything under the sun….
Joyce asks the questions.
We answer the questions.
1. How did you welcome the month of July, and tell us one fun thing you did to celebrate the 4th. (or the weekend for any non-USA residents playing along today)
|My Husband and I|
We hosted a housewarming and fireworks party. Friends from work, church, camping adventures, the Atlanta Tall Club and our new neighbors joined us to celebrate our new home and the Fourth of July. We had food, fun, and fireworks. I went to the fireworks store for the first time, it was awesome! I never realized how much I liked blowing things up until I was surrounded by mega heaps of explosives. I had to use the "other" credit card...you know, the one your husband doesn't see right away...hoping that after the party, he would think it was an awesome purchase too! (giggle, just kiddin', he knew how much I spent). You know us southerners "Watch this"--- "KABOOM" --- "Whoops-a-daisy" --- get the garden hose. LOL
2. Right now..what's your favorite red thing? white thing? blue thing?
RED - The red barn down the road from our house (I love Barns, see my pinterest board filled with cool barns - https://www.pinterest.com/lorisglassworks/barns-great-and-small/). WHITE - Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (my guilty pleasure) with fresh fruit and cool whip. BLUE - Hydrangea blooms outside the front door.
3. Wave the white flag, raise a red flag, fly your freak flag...which 'flag' have you flown most recently? Explain.
The red white and blue waves over our house since we moved in 8 weeks ago. Down the road is a house flying many flags that we consider tasteless and some are even racist. We want our new neighbors to know we only fly one flag and we're proud of it.
4. According to Cond Nast Traveler these are the seven best places to visit in July-
a boat safari in Botswanna's Okavango Delta, Riviera Maya Mexico (it's whale shark season and apparently you can swim with them), Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, Pamploma Spain, St. Petersburg Russia, the Fuji Rock Festival at Mount Naeba Japan, the Salzburg Festival in Salzburg Austria
If time and money weren't factors would you want to see any/all of these? Which would you most like to see and why?
I love to travel and would love to visit them all! I have been to Riviera Maya Mexico, but never swam with the sharks. Mexico is one of my favorite destinations, friendly people, wonderful food, and easy access to so many fabulous ruins. Most of our extra cash is used for travel adventures.
5. Grilled cheese, pimento cheese, or mac and cheese...your favorite from the cheesy treats listed?
Oh my, I love them all, but I'd have to say my favorite is pimento cheese. I'd only had Kraft Pimento Cheese in the little glass jar before I moved to the south 30+ years ago. Southern style spread is a little chunky, a little smooth, and a whole lot of yummy!
6. What makes you sweat?
Party Anxiety... I'm basically a shy person; I'm good one-on-one, but large groups of new people can be very uncomfortable for me. I also get anxious when I'm hosting a party; I'm always afraid no one will arrive....it's never happened and I've been told we have great parties, but I still get anxious. Parties make me sweat!
Apollo 13 (1995) - ''Apollo 13 grabbed the heart of not only this nation, but the heart of the world.'' said Gene Kranz, the lead flight director for Apollo 13. What a great film!
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I want to grow my blog readership; any suggestions on how to go about this? I've had a blog for awhile but I'm just getting serious about writing several times a week. I just retired from the corporate world and now have time to work on my blog. Any suggestions or critiques on my content or style? Thanks!
