Sunday Stealing: Tea and Q&A

1. What is your middle name and what is a middle name you'd rather have instead? Why? My middle name is Gayle and I like it.  My dad's middle name was Gale, so mom & dad added a "y" in the middle to make it more feminine for me. 

2. How would you spend $1MM (you have to spend every penny!) I would pay off all my debt, buy a new Jeep and use the rest to help family.

3. Yellow light - speed up or slow down? It depends on how close I am to the intersection.  Most of the time I just stop.

4. What was the last movie you saw and what did you like/dislike about it?  I recently watched "The Lego Batman Movie". I like it because it makes me laugh!

5. If a movie was made about you, who would portray you in that movie? Hopefully, Drew Barrymore!

6. What is the strangest thing you've eaten and what did it taste like? Rattlesnake. But I didn't know it until after I ate it.  My family said it tastes like chicken, however, I don't remember it having much flavor. 

7. What color is your bathroom? Pale yellow with brown log cabin/outdoor type decor.

8. If you could vacation anywhere in the world RIGHT NOW, where would it be and why? Ireland. I want to see the homeland of my ancestors.

9. What is your least favorite thing to cook? Anything that takes more than 15 minutes.  I do not like to cook and I have never been good at cooking.

10. What is the dish you make that your family rolls their eyes at? None that I can think of.

11. What are three things on your bucket list? Visiting Ireland, visiting all 50 states in the United States and living to be 100!

12. How many skeins of yarn do you think you are currently hoarding? Probably only two or so.  And I don't know where they are!  LOL

13. Today is my birthday. What virtual gift are you going to give me? A virtual big hug!
14. What is your favorite candy? Chocolate

15. What is your favorite time of the day and why? Driving home from work at the end of a long day. I turn the music up and sing along at the top of my lungs.  A great way to relax and unwind.

16. If you could call in sick for a day, what would you do with the time? Lay in bed and watch tv.  

17. How much did your last crafting run cost you? I have not been on a crafting run in years.

18. Can you play a musical instrument and if so, which one? Growing up I had a organ that I could play relatively well. I might still be able to play, but I doubt it.

19. What is your least favorite craft that you still do? Why? Sewing!  I hate to sew. I am terrible at sewing.

20. If you could have any job for just one day, what would it be and what would you do? I would like to be President of the United States for one day just to see what goes on behind the scenes!

Stuck In My Head: "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" by The Beatles


"Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds"

Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
And she's gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Aaaaahhhhh...

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
That grow so incredibly high

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore
Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds
And you're gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Aaaaahhhhh...

Picture yourself on a train in a station
With Plasticine porters with looking-glass ties
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Aaaaahhhhh...
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Aaaaahhhhh...
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Sunday Stealing: Brrr

1. Do you prefer winter or summer? Why? I prefer summer.  Winter is too dark, gray and gloomy for me. I hate feeling like I am stuck indoors all the time.  In the summer I can get outside in the sunshine, see the green grass, green trees and smell the beautiful flowers.

2. What are your favorite winter activities? Sitting inside the house, sipping coffee and playing on my computer.

3. Can you tell me about a time you went skiing or skating? I have only been skiing one time in my life when I was a kid and I was only on a tiny hill.  I did my best to just walk down the hill rather than ski!  LOL  I do not skate well at all.  I fall often and can barely move.

4. Have you ever made a snow angel? Many, many times.

5. Is your house cold? My house is nicely insulated and holds heat well.

6. Do you have a fireplace in your house? No, and I wish it did. I miss the fireplace I had in my last house.

7. What do you usually do to keep warm in the winter? Stay inside as much as possible.  If I have to venture out, I wear layers of clothing.

8. Have you ever gone hiking in the snow? Yes.

9. Tell me about a snowball fight you had. It has been years since I was in a snowball fight.  My son and I were throwing snowballs at each other while sledding back in 2010. Such fun!

10. Have you ever looked at a snowflake carefully? Yes.

11. Do you have a sled? Have you been sledding? I no longer have a sled. I have been sledding many, many times.

12. What do you usually do after a big snowfall? Clean off the sidewalks, deck and the steps leading into the house.

13. What’s the best thing about winter? When it is over.

14. What’s the worst thing about winter? The cold temperatures.

15. Have you ever been in a blizzard? Yes.

17. Have you ever slipped on ice and hurt yourself? Many, many times!  LOL

18.Have you ever had to shovel snow? Every time it snows.

19. Will you be watching the Olympics? No. I don't have time to watch.

20. If yes, what are your favorite events? For the Winter Olympics, I like to watch bobsledding, luge and snowboarding.

Two Years Ago Today....

Two years ago today.....
Colt was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
The doctor's gave him and us hope....false hope, in my opinion.
They gave Colt a five year plan....Colt only lived 31 more days.

I love you son! Forever and always.
