After a busy weekend with kid activities, I’m enjoying
some down time and wondering what to do for a post.Memes are good when you can’t come up with
something so here is a compilation spring meme from a bunch of them out on the
good ol web.I’m calling this a spring
random meme because hey, its spring and why not?Here goes….
Are You a Risk Taker?
I eat raw cookie dough (I’m surprised I even get any
cookies to the oven sometimes!) and I throw lights and darks together in the
wash.I wear at least SPF 30 sunscreen
and I never wear white shirts on a rainy day.On a scale of risk takers, I’m probably one level above a sloth.I don’t do roller coasters anymore.My level at amusement parks is all the virtual rides I can handle.I do love those!Does that answer your question?Let’s move on…
What musical instrument would you like to play?
Considering I don’t play ANY instruments, I guess I’d say
guitar.But really, I think it would be
fun and much easier (maybe) to just set up some glasses on my kitchen counter
and play water glasses.You know, like
these musicians you see at fairs and street festivals. Although if they were filled with wine, that might improve my playing skills a little as I worked with the level of fluid in each glass, getting each one just right!
They make some really cool sounds and get a load of those huge
glasses.The water level has to be just
right to get the sound right.Really
intriguing and I could practice at home. I’m pretty sure I would have broken
glass all over the place given how clutzy I am.
If you want to hear him, here is a video I found of the same man....
What was the last book you read?
Bossy Pants by Tina Fey. I laughed a lot!
What was the last movie you saw?
Argo while on a plane ride.It was good.I really liked it.
Do you read the newspaper? Yes although the content has gone way down
from years ago when it was more meaty.I
read it mostly for the cartoons and horoscopes.You know, the important stuff!
What magazine subscriptions do you have?
I subscribe to Prevention and Cloth,Paper, Scissors.
If you were to hoard something what would it be?
You mean besides beads?My bead obsession has slowed down, I admit.I guess my next hoarding obsession if I could
would be fabrics.And I don’t even sew!!Just walking into a fabric place, looking at
the wall of fabrics, sends me over the edge.I get a little crazy.Patterns,
colors, beautiful possibilities.I wish
I could sew cute kids clothes, bags and purses, you know, anything!I would have my own wall of fabrics at home
just to look at, I think.They just make
me happy!That and oh, maybe yarn.I could be a crazy yarn lady who doesn’t knit.Just collects skeins of pretty colored
yarns.I literally go weak at the knees
with handspun art yarns like this…
What do you order at your local coffee shop?
I make coffee at home 99% of the time.If I happen to order out, it’s a tall
Americano with room for creamer.I like
Starbucks Morning Joe for my home coffee maker.That and Seattle’s Best number 3.I usually drink it like this….
How often do you eat out?
Maybe once a month?Not that often. Eat in, even take out, yeah, we do that more often.
Do you like homemade meals? Yes, even more when I don’t have to be the
one to cook them!But I do enjoy trying
out new recipes and now with Pinterest, it seems I have a lot of recipes I want
to try out. It's a good thing I'm only hoarding them on my Pinterest boards for now. Oh, another thing I hoard---recipes. I have tons of them clipped out from magazines. I've only made a handful of them. See? Hoarding.
What’s your favorite spring comfort food?Lemon pound cake.I don’t know why, but I never make it any
other time of year. My hips thank me.
April showers bring….? Allergies!Actually it’s the grasses that do me in.I’ll switch that and say…bugs!I notice flies and bees hovering about more
now.Oh, and I think we’re in for a cicada
batch around here soon.I’ll let ya know
how that goes for us!The last time
we had them, my son was about 3 or 4 and he had a blast with the skeletons
hanging on the tree bark and picking them off.He also let the live ones crawl around on his shirt.Freaked. Me. Out.Yuck!Those big beady eyes….shiver.
Ok, that's it for my spring edition of a random bunch of questions. Thanks for stopping by. Hope to have something less creepy than the above next time! In fact, instead of that image to leave you with, I'll give you this one. I couldn't stop chuckling and the image is better stuck in my head than the cicada one...
