Share Your World – Week 29 August 29, 2013

Here is week 29 questions for Share Your World.


While in school who was your favorite teacher – what grade and why? I can hardly remember my teachers names. I can’t say I had a favorite. I didn’t like school at all, although I did okay in it. I guess my favorite would have to be Mr Schreffler. He was my band instructor on and off through junior and senior high school.


Would you accept $5,000 to shave your head or die it bright lime green and continue your normal activities while not explaining the reason for your haircut or color? No way would I shave my head, but I would consider the bright green hair color, I would have to get the $5,000 first.


You are trapped in an elevator, who would you want to be trapped with? No one, I would enjoy the alone time.


When you are with your friends, do your interactions include much touching—for example, hugging, kissing, rough housing, rubbing backs?   Would you like to have more of this? (Note:  the answers may vary depending on where you live on this wonderful planet.) I am not the type of person who likes to touch or be touched.





A Word A Week Challenge-Pink August 28, 2013

It’s been a slow day today, the kind of day that’s been so hot your body doesn’t have the energy to sweat. So what does one do on this kind of day? Find a blog challenge about the word pink. I found this challenge at

So yes, I don’t have the energy to come up with my own subjects, nor do I seem to own anything that’s pink or very much of it. Don’t get me wrong, I love the color pink. Being the mother of five boys…..well it hasn’t been a predominate color choice. That being said, Pink was a real challenge. This is what I came up with on my quest for pink.

My drink of crystal light (strawberry) is a shade of pink.


My extremely messy bed because being lazy, I’m not in to making my bed until it’s time to go to bed. They are definitely pink.

pink sheets

My favorite notebook, which I call my brain (it has everything in it), has a pink cover.


So as you can see, I don’t have the most exciting selection of pink but just what till the challenge of blue comes along…….


Share Your World: Week 28 August 21, 2013

Here’s some very silly questions for week 28 in Share Your World…

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best?  I would have to say Grumpy would best describe me although I would probably rename him Cranky. Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) I would name him Sarcasm.

Would you travel into outer space? Only if I had a real cool place as my final destination.

If you were a tree, would you become a book or furniture?  Please describe. I’d rather not become either one. I’d rather stay the tree.

Which would you prefer:  a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood? I’d rather have the happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family because to me that spells success.

It’s just another day……. August 19, 2013

I took a break from blogging to gather up my resources for a new school year of homeschooling. I found some wonderful new material to use this year, all free. The only thing I will have to spend money on is paper, pencils,crayons and the internet. The internet and I are still having our issues. This year I’m using the Easy Peasy All in One Homeschool curriculum and adding what I need and taking out what I don’t like. I believe it’s going to be a good year.

Share Your World; Week 26

This week’s random questions for “Share your World”


Are you left or right handed? I am right handed. I am not coordinated enough to do much with my left hand.

Before making a phone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? Depends on who I am calling. I just hate sounding stupid on the phone.

Crunchy Peanut Butter or Smooth Peanut butter?   Anything with your peanut butter? Smooth peanut butter, I just love creamy. I’m odd, I love butter with my peanut butter.

How many rings before you answer the phone? Me? Answer the phone? Surely you jest.

Celebrate the Small Things; Aug 3 August 3, 2013

Yesterday was a bad day for me. It was payday but as usual too many bills not enough money. 

My truck broke down on the way to work so I was a half hour late.

Work itself was a when will it end kind of day.

It’s my weekend off, so I celebrate the end of terrible week and a more pleasant weekend. It has to be better.


What are you celebrating?
